    Paying my dues to the dirt!

    🎵If you love somebody
    🎵Better tell them while they're here cause
    🎵They just may run away from you
    🎵You'll never know quite when
    🎵Then again it just depends on
    🎵How long a time is left for you

    Imagine Dragons
    I'm On Top Of The World🌎

    I love this song. Very serious topic and a very upbeat song. It is a perfect example of Imagine Dragons not having a happy song-Just happy sounding ones. I once heard a a cancer survivor say that the lyric, "I take it in but don't look down." Was her favorite.
    I would have to say, "I know it's hard when you're falling down. And it's a long way up when you've hit the ground. Get up now. Get up. Get up now. "
    I believe so many of us find strength in the music when we need it. What a blessing!
    Dan Reynolds is an inspiration because he shows us that it is possible to feel broken an sad at times but just keep going.
    Live in the moment.
    Most of the time, I have heard Imagine Dragons music from the CDs. I am also fortunate enough to have been to a live concert. I'm On Top Of The World is pretty breathtaking live, especially when the whole band is drumming at the same time.
    I have been on YouTube and watched some concerts and outdoor festivals with more people attending than I have ever seen in one place before!

    Rock Am Ring was amazing! The song Friction was written from inspiration of the energy of Rock Am Ring. The first picture if from a festival where the band had a serious mud fight just before going on stage. I'm sure they got muddy just because it was outrageously fun but to show support for their fans standing outdoors in the rain. Part of me can't believe Wayne letting mud get near that awesome gold guitar!🎸
    Our daily reminder to live in the moment!
    Rock On!💥🐲

    I love Imagine Dragons very much
    Even when I feel happy, sad, angry, confused, high pressured, etc......
    Listen to their songs make me relax, and become optimistic

    But at this moment, I feel sad, I think "Lost Cause" is talking about me

    No one can understand me
    Like you can understand
    No one can fill your shadow
    'Cause you are all I am

    Oh, dig my shallow grave
    It's not me you'll save
    'Cause I'm a lost cause
    I'm a lost cause, a lost, lost cause
    I'm Radioactive Radioactive

    You know, I see a little of myself in most of their work. I think you have to appreciate darkness to fully get it. Dan Reynolds is a very brave man to go there.
    I would talk with you anytime if you want to chat.
    Welcome little Dragon.
    This is a great fan club because everyone gets what you are talking about.

    @+Lisa+ , @ringosmomma , Although I joined Imagine Dragons World last month, and we never met each other by face-to-face, I found that you are a really kind firebreathers. There's no doubt for me to show you my message, and I am willing to tell you about my sad story.

    Let's start with 10 years ago, I was a high school student in Hong Kong. That was my first year to study in that school. I was very happy to meet some new friends at school. I couldn't keep a good friendships with some other friends. However, there were 3 friends called Kaman, Idy, and Wing, even though sometimes we would have conflicts, we became peaceful very soon.

    After graduated, we played with each other happily, went for some cafe chat, 4 of us played at home together, sang karaoke, went shopping. We celebrated Birthday and Christmas party every year.

    This year, 2016, I am 22 years old now. Kaman, Idy, and Wing had an argument with me last week. Finally, I think I am doing a wrong thing and I need to apologize with them, but I can't get any pardons this time. They won't forgive me forever. I am really really sad because they are my best friends, my close friends. I recognized them for 10 years.

    I didn't tell my parents about this, because I didn't want them to worry about me. I realize a lot in this issue. Having arguments are inevitable. Toleration is very important, that keeps a permanent friendship. Cherish and treasure all people that surrounds you. It'll be too late to regret when you lost someone. I cry a lot not because of angers, regrets. It's because of yearning the sweet memories with them within these 10 years. Time passed, I can't change anything. I need to be optimistic. It's worth for me to lost 10 years friendships to improve my personal characteristic.

    By the way, I tried to listen to songs by (Coldplay, Taylor Swift, and other singers...) these days, hope to take the sadness away. I found that I can't pay attention to those songs because of my sad emotion. Only Imagine Dragons' songs make me feel comfortable, optimistic. Their songs inspires me not to be pessimistic. I really like @Rena Snow signature. "Imagine Dragons saved my life." <-- It's true. Their songs make me get out of depressed circumstance.

    Finally, I want to say, "For me, Imagine Dragons is the best band, best songwriter, best singer. I love Imagine Dragons and Firebreathers always"

    As my first language is Cantonese, not English, I am poor in English. Hope you can read my message.

    I hope Imagine Dragons can see this post, because they would be happy when they know their songs can help people to get out of depressed circumstance.

    It is a very touching(although sad) story, so thank you for honest sharing. Unfortunately, things like that happen sometimes, and the only things we should all do is not to loose optimism and a will to have a fantastic life. I truly hope that you will get over after a while, and it`s good to hear that Imagine Dragons are helping you through this the most, cause we all here know how it feels.

    And yey, Imagine Dragons should really know this simple fact: they are saving lives.
    Imagine Dragons saved my life.(c)

    I'm ready for the Fall

    @fookpui I'm so sad, my tears are falling at your story. I do hope you can fix your friendships, if they cannot be mended I hope you will find the strength to move on.

    If you have a picture to add to this story I would love to add it to the member spotlight stories, hopefully someday imagine Dragons will read our stories.

    I will be your long distance friend. I understand. I am a professional dog trainer because I understand dogs instantly but I don't usually understand people.

    The boys in the band Imagine Dragons remind me of brothers. One of the things that I like most about them is their kindness.

    @+Lisa+ I find the strength from their songs
    "Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ay"
    I hope someday Imagine Dragons will read this, may I enclose a picture to you later??


    @ringosmomma Thanks, I think I really need a long distance friend. You are as kind as Imagine Dragons. Professional dog trainer is such a great career. I am a junior web designer. We are "Working Man"
    "Shake it, shake it
    And we're moving again
    Been a long time coming for the working man
    So shake it, shake it
    And we're moving again
    When the money is high, we can start to spend"


    @blankreckrik
    It's really my feelings
    "Again my friend
    I know it's been a while since I could look you in the eyes
    'Cause I am foolish and I am sorry
    But sorry never made it feel alright
    Alright"

    My favorite lyric in Working Man....

    ��When everything is falling, I'm gonna do the things you do.

    Imagine Dragons have just kept going and it has taken them to the top of the world!�� (pun intended :-) )

    Such a great response, exactly how I am with the lyrics! I could reply with Imagine Dragons lyrics to every part of my day, I swear!

    How about I use your art picture from last month for the spotlight? If you ever want to add a photo of yourself, we can always edit it in later.
