I don’t usually write this kind of things, but I’m gonna try now. And sorry if I have bad english, I’m from Sweden.. :)
(I’m think I’m gonna write this as if it is to Paramore, because.. it is.)
Here’s the deal, I live, breathe, exist for Paramore. Everything that you do, I adore that, every little part. I’ve have only seen you guys live once, but those 65 minutes was the best minutes of my life, and I’m not kidding. I cried for 100 minutes that day, just because I was so happy. When Hayley saw me and waved to me and blew a kiss to me, that was the best moment of my life. I mean, if anyone has seen a more beautiful human being than Hayley Williams, please raise you hand. (You see, no one raised their hand) When Jeremy did his flip over Josh in “Pressure” I screamed so much that I almost passed out. There is no other band in the world that can or have given me so much love and happiness as Paramore have. You are so funny, talented, beautiful, crazy and so on. I can spend days just looking at pictures of you and listening to your music, and do nothing else. Right now, it’s 110 days until I’m going to Scotland (from Sweden) to see you again and that’s a LONG time, but I’m holding on, because I know that it’s gonna rock so hard! Also, I’m crying now, because I just watched a movie from Pier Pressure when you can see when Hayley waves to me, everytime I see the video I cry, because it’s so unbelievable. I will never forget that day, never ever.
Paramore is, the best band ever and I love you more than anything.
You guys saved me when I was drowning and right now, I live for you.
Your music gets me up whenever I’m down, or it helps me when I am down, I always feel better when I’m listening to Paramore.
Nothing can ever change that, I love you so much more than life.
(That’s ironic since you guys are my life…)
I love you because you are so real, you say exactly what you think. And the music! There is nothing that can compete with that, when Hayley’s singing, I get goosebumps all over my body, and all of the boys are so awesome on their instruments and everything about them is perfect. My favorite thing about you is (besides that you are hilarious) that you sound exactly the same live as on the CDs, and that’s pretty unusual. But Hayley’s voice is and will always be, the best I’ve ever heard. AND, you all are SO f*cking beautiful, I mean, seriously, you look like models all of you. Not fair!
It’s through your music I’ve found myself, you guys give me hope and strength to stay alive.
You are the reasons I’m still breathing.
You are my only exceptions.
Oops, that got pretty long, sorry about that.
My biggest wish is to win a M&G with you, hopefully that will come true sometime.
I love you. / Tilda from Gothenburg, Sweden
Don’t think this will even get anywhere buts it worth a try, please please please add a Cardiff date to your UK tour..Wales has been left out! :(
I saw you live on May 4th, 2010 at the Deltaplex Arena…You came outside after the show to see all of us who were waiting by the bus… I handed you a letter, and I just want to know if you read it. p.s. tell zack and taylor it was wonderfull meeting them at starbucks. ohh, and meeting you was thee highlight of my life. thank you for making music that lets me know that everything is gong to be okay.
I’m Rhianna. This may sound pretty selfish but seeing as I know a fair bit about you all, I hope you don’t mind if I share some things about myself. I’m going to start off by saying that [as I’m sure you know] you guys are one of the most faithful & inspirational bands out there – seriously, bands like you come around rarely. I’m a passionate rock fan and if there is one thing I could ever ask of you, it’s to not ever give up on us fans – and I know you won’t! As a tiny insignificant mark on the spectrum of life the only thing I will never stop praying for is the strong-holding determination, faith and compassion you guys frequently show & put out there every single day to the world. I hope that one day I can be the type of people you are. You know we will always be singing it back to you.
Something I don’t believe I’ve ever told anyone before, but I would like to share with you, is that I have a voice. Not an exceptional one like Hayley’s, but a good voice nonetheless. I was recently asked to sing live at an event with some other guys I know, and after weeks of petty rehearsals where I used excuse after excuse, I quit. Just walked away from it and missed my chance of showing others how to channel the confidence and love which I learnt from you. I know I have it deep inside of me, hopefully one day I will be able to show it. I would love to know about the first time you guys performed in public, how it made you feel and whether you felt a sense of pride & accomplishment – or even whether it was a total disaster :] It would be great if you could share that sometime.
I live in what appears to be a fairly claustrophobic life and whenever I feel like I’m about to hit rock-bottom, I always look to you. I often find it difficult to form relationships with people and feel like I’m constantly put on the spot, but when everything else in the world is letting me down, you never do. And as I’m sure is the case with thousands of my other fellow fans, your music makes me feel like there is a reason to live, there is a reason to hold out faith in humanity, and there is a reason why you’re some of the most looked up to people on the planet. Your music speaks when the room is silent.
The first time I ever heard a Paramore song was April 2008 when you released ‘That’s What You Get’. To this day it remains my most favourite song of yours, purely for its distinct simplicity and quirkiness. I can’t describe the feeling I got when I first heard it that day, but something has changed in me since then… and it’s all down to you guys. You’ve put your “heart & souls” into your music and we will always love you for your honesty – it is impossible not to be able to relate to your songs. I am counting down the days until I see you at the SOLD OUT [yes!] 02 Arena show in London. I saw you last year when you played Wembley Arena on the 18th December and wow, I was completely blown away. It was the last show before the Christmas holidays and you guys just killed it. I can honestly say that the moment you started playing ‘My Heart’ and I heard that riff, my stomach fell out and I cried with my cousin. You never cease to amaze me.
Finally, you will never know how big an impact you’ve had on some one like me’s life, and for that reason I am incredibly proud & glad of you for remaining so humble & modest with everything that life has thrown at you. I am, and will always be, a proud Paramore fan. We will forever have your back, if you have ours.
I hope you are all keeping well. Keep rocking, keep loving.
Yours truly, Rhianna Elliott of London, England =] xxxxx
I literally just found this blog 5 minutes ago. I always knew what I would say to Paramore if I met them, or what I would write in a letter. But now that it’s in front of me, I’ve gone cold. But anyway. I’ve been a fan for a while now. I’ve been a fan since the release of All We Know Is Falling. But back then, I wasn’t the fan I am now. I would like to say some Paramore statistics about myself. I have been to 4 Paramore shows, (on August 6th 2010, it will be 5), I have 2 Paramore hoodies, 7 Paramore shirts, 13 Paramore posters in my room, I have never met them and all the CDs and demos on my iPod obviously. Now to state the reason I am writing this. Paramore saved my life. And they continue to each and every day. On August 5th, 2007 my grandma passed away, and it was the worst day of my life. I went into depression and was suicidal. And I was like that for a few years. Sometimes even today I feel like it would’ve been better if I just wasn’t here. I live for Paramore. I really do. Last summer, I went through a terrible break up with someone who I loved with all my heart. We were best friends and together. And I was losing two at once. I had no where to turn, no where at all. I was literally minutes away from ending me, and in the background from another room I heard music. It was my computer and it was playing the song “When It Rains” by Paramore. And the lyrics went like this “So why can’t you stay just long enough to explain?” And that’s when I realized I was made to live for something. For Paramore. To tell them my story. To tell them that they saved my life and made me the person I am today. Most people think my love for Paramore is an obsession but frankly, it can’t be an obsession, really, if they saved your life. I owe them everything. Everyone knows how much I love Paramore. And if you don’t like Paramore or respect me for loving them, I aint your friend ;] http://www.youtube.com/user/sowhywontyoustay#p/u
Please go to my channel and watch my Paramore Story videos from 1 to 5. It explains my story better if this confused you. When times are tough, I think to the future and say “On this blahblahblah date, everything will be better because I will see Paramore.” I live for each new Paramore record, Paramore show, Paramore music video, etc. Another story of mine: I was in Florida with my school music department at Disney and I was having a rough week cause my friends weren’t talking to me and let’s just say it didn’t feel like “the most magical place on earth.” So my best friend Amanda, who’s always happy, was listening to my iPod with me and we were listening to Paramore. Now take note that Amanda is a very louddd girl so we were singing to That’s What You Get out loud as we were waiting to go back on the monorail to go back to the hotel. It was probably 10pm and no one told us to shut up. In fact, the entire section of the monorail that we were on, joined in with us. It felt perfect. It meant so much to me, I can’t even tell you. My friend’s weren’t being nice, but Paramore fan stick together. Okay, here’s my last story: I was at Bamboozle on May 1st, 2010. I was about 10 feet from the stage and I was waiting for Drake to get off the damn other stage. I was by myself because I’m cool like that. And I just couldn’t wait for Paramore to play. I started to cry. (I always do before a Paramore show) This guy next to me who was probably 17 (I’m 16) noticed me crying and was like “Hey are you okay?” And was like “Yeah yeah I’m fine thanks, why?” And he was like “Well you’re crying.” And I was like “Yeah, I am, I’m just excited to see Paramore. They saved my life.” And he was like “Aww that’s cute.” And I was like “No really, they did. I was minutes away from ending my life, and they saved me.” Little did I know, everyone around me could hear me, not just the boy. About 15 people that crowded around me either put their hand on my back or hugged me or said “I’m glad you’re here tonight.”
Hayley, I know you are on tumblr so I’m hoping you read this and I hope I get a ton of people to read this and reblog it but you made me who I am. Sometimes when I’m doing the wrong thing I’m like “What would Hayley think of me if I did this?” But yeah, I am going to be at the show on Friday August 6th 2010. I am going to get there like 4:30 to see if I can meet you by your bus. I hope you’re ready for the biggest hug ever. I love you with all my heart and I consider you my best friend cause everyone thinks if we knew each other we’d be best friends.
At the show, I’m going to be wearing a tank top that I made that says “IF YOU’RE A PARAWHORE, HUG ME” and during the show I’ll be holding up a poster that says “PARAMORE, YOU SAVED MY LIFE. CAN I HUG ALL OF YOU?” So yes. thank you for letting me do this.
I love you Paramore.
