Turn it up. Sing along with every word. Let it move through you. Fight the urge to dance, cry, scream. [feel]
I [love] this song and subsequently this video.
A few weeks ago someone asked me why I love this song.
I've been considering the 'why' and though I'm still trying to work out the best way to put my feelings into words, this is my 'why:'
The music itself inspires movement. I get an ache that can only be satiated by allowing myself to move genuinely to the beats.
That's on the fairly superficial level.
Here's where it gets real.
I identify with every word.
I know what it feels like to burn, love, hate, cry and break in a relationship.
I've been told to end it, tried to end it, then tried again to make it work.
I've promised, changed my mind, apologized and lied a million times over.
I know that's not what love should be, but I know that's what it can be.
Love can offer comfort, warmth and safety and in an instant, can explode, consume, and destroy.
I feel the passion in the words and the music and the voices.
That's the point, really. This song makes me feel.
