When emotions are high, or raw, or low—this is when music is most essential.
I sometimes fall into a feeling of normalcy over some things. That my parents are no longer walking around in the world. That my only sibling is mentally ill. That they were, we were, once, a little family with little kids and dreams for the future.
The crashing of the dreams is the most haunting part.
Tonight I am reminded and it doesn’t feel normal (although that state may be a delusional one, at best).
So I landed on the song. I had to listen so hard to hear the story. But it was worth sticking around for.
