that is why i'm singing

"so that is how i learned the lesson that everyone is alone.
and your eyes must do some raining if you are ever going to grow.
but when crying don't help and you can't compose yourself.
it is best to compose a poem, an honest verse of longing or simple song of hope."

tonight i was reminded of how much i love bright eyes, and conor oberst. and, i was also reminded how grateful i am for music, for my open ears, my open heart, and that i refuse to just shut down and give up.

i believe in tears, in allowing yourself to be broken in order to heal, and in writing no matter how much it might hurt. and in music, in singing, in spinning around the kitchen with feet bare and your arms thrown open.

bowl of oranges ~ bright eyes

song of the day
