I’m from a generation undecided
I’m restless and I can’t help changing lanes
But in all the noise and the excitement,
you’re love is all that will remain
I’ve said all of my goodbyes to ego
I gambled all I got, there’s no plan B
It’s the first time that I’ve learnt to let go
It’s the only place I feel, only place I feel like me
– Where I Sleep by Emeli Sandé
I love her music. Her voice has the power to bring me to tears. Today she released her new album, Long Live the Angels, and I’m already in love. Her voice is powerful, her lyrics honest, and her aura calming. If you don’t believe me, watch her interview with Trevor Nelson.
I fell in love with Breathing Underwater, shared below. The first time I listened to it I cried for a good 30 minutes. The song reminded me of all I have been through. There have been moments when I thought I wouldn’t make it. There are days when I’m my own worst enemy, when my mind refuses to cooperate and I feel like I am about to lose my mind. In those moments I think death is surely easier than life. Fighting the monsters that come with Bipolar II Disorder is draining and demoralising, but I live. I wake up everyday and conquer the battle called life, while simultaneously conquering the war that wishes to claim my life. I get to acknowledge the greatness that is the human spirit. I look at people differently because I know that regardless what they are going through, they soldier on. It is amazing.
If nothing else, let this song remind you of all your triumphs.
