Sometimes I wish I was sixteen again. To be naïve, weak, and broken. To live life by the lyrics that defined my life perfectly. Not be concerned with being consumed, but eager to bathe in the endless possibilities of imagination. Not to question the pain, but to embrace it. I wanted to write a song that people would here to magically guide them to where exactly they needed to be. I wanted to use my pain for the beneficiary of others.
I have a firm belief our greatest creativities are creations from our sorrows, and it’s because of that that sometimes I wish I was still naïve, weak, and broken. But there comes a time where the story in the song ends, and those final notes lead you to a place where only your own mind can guide you. And in the midst of the sorrow and betrayal, our bodies still continue to pump the blood through our hearts and into our minds and souls to let us know that we are still alive without the music.
So yes, I do miss being young and living life by those lyrics. But in the end of it all, I wouldn’t trade anything for the strength I’ve received from my own silent melody."
