I’ve been trying to paint or sing or write words that express all the emotions I’ve been feeling lately. And for the past few days I couldn’t find it.
When I woke up this morning, this song was stuck in my head. I heard it in my dreams. And I realized it was the art I have been looking for to match whatever it is I’ve been feeling. I know it is considered a “sad song,” but for some reason it makes me so, so happy.
I sat outside in the sunshine and listened to it on repeat. There is just something magical about it. I wanted to share it with you.
“I’ve learned to slam on the brake
Before I even turn the key
Before I make the mistake
Before I lead with the worst of me
Give them no reason to stare
No slipping up if you slip away
So I’ve got nothing to share
No, I got nothing to say”
We start with stars in our eyes
We start believing that we belong
But every sun doesn’t rise
And no one tells you where you went wrong
– Dear Evan Hansen
