Nothing’s Ever Built To Last | 21 Guns

Nothing’s ever built to last, this is a line from Green Day’s 21 Guns. That song surges many emotions inside, but I’ve always thought of this particular line as a very sad one. Everything’s going go end, the Summer, the school, the best winning streak, the best times of youth. Someone will always tell you how this is the best time and also how this will be over.

But it struck me today, suddenly, as I was walking in the afternoon sun. Maybe this isn’t a sad line after all. Nothing’s built to last also means the pain, the agony, the confusion, the fear, none of it will last forever. The heart burning feeling of being lost, of not understanding your own worth, all of these will end too.

This too shall pass. Nothing’s built to last. So perhaps it’s better to sleep rather than worrying about 1325 things at 12 in the morning.
