falling out of touch

It’s undeniable and for some unforeseen. There comes a time in which we establish a connection so strong with somebody it tilts our whole world around. No one but you truly knows or could know how that feels like. That’s sometimes the beauty in connecting with somebody and a concept that’s still crazy to me. I can talk endlessly to somebody about somebody that means a lot to me, but that person has no idea what that feels like. Sure they can try to empathize and try to be in your shoes but you and I both know damn well that that shit doesn’t work.

I wanted to focus on what happens when the fire is extinguished.

These next few songs are by no means the most upbeat ones and may end up making you feel worse about yourself, but sometimes the best way to beat sadness is to embrace it and take it head-on. Well, maybe not. But still, these songs happened to be extremely meaningful to me through different circumstances and hopefully, they can be like that for you too.
