This track is a story about life and death. It makes you reflect in a calm-and-subtle-tone type of way. Listen and get its meaning here.
A track with layers of meaning. It’s amazing how music and lyrics can take on so many forms– about us and the world we live in. What does this track remind you of?
I’m trawling along the bottom again – I don’t know why – honestly…
It’s the not knowing that kills – and not just you, but your loved ones too as you can’t articulate and are forced to watch as they project and hurt…
God I love the story tellers.
The lyricists who construct a reality you can step into, to experience it as if you were there – as if you knew the characters – who do it so seamlessly that – even if it is by proxy – you get to feel the emotions for real.
That’s the point of this list – it’s designed to make you feel – to connect with the emotions that we’re oh so good at keeping hidden, buried under guilt and social conditioning. Because when we don’t deal with those emotions – well – that’s when the bad shit happens…
Loss – when it’s still visceral – when you still think you can call them – when you’re still discombobulated and not sure when it will end.
Loss – when it colors your every move and burns hot in your heart.
