Who else knows this? You're sitting in your room listening to music and suddenly you get this concerned question: 'Are you okay? You're listening to such sad music.'
It's happened to me over and over again. And I don't quite know what to say. I just really like to listen to sad music. Also, and maybe even more often, when I'm doing well. It doesn't drag me down. On the contrary, it makes me downright happy to bathe in heavy minor chords or to listen to a well-spun tragedy. It is as if a door opens inside me, I become soft, vulnerable and empathetic. And I like that. Do you know what I mean?
I just finished the last lines for a song lyric on this topic with Leo. For the first time in a very, very long time, I feel like something is really finished. That there is no more lazy compromise, but every word is fine the way it is. Now of course I'm dying to show you the result. Although at the same time I'm getting quite nervous at the thought of it. I just hope you like sad songs as much as I do.
