Even though I listened to music as a child, I don’t think I really understood its power until my teenage years. Some of my earliest influences were bands like REM, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam and U2, and what I admired about these artists was their ability to fuse stunning sound with poetic lyrics that really meant something. Since then, music has become a significant part of my life as I find that certain artists have the ability to express what I am thinking or feeling in ways I am unable to convey on my own. For those of you who feel the same, this section of the website is devoted to music that does just that.

So, I can’t say this is my favorite video version of this song by any means but I felt the official video didn’t do the lyrics justice. If you’ve ever battled with an addiction, depression, suicide, or mental health issues check out this video. I’ve found it to be very inspiring, even if I’m just at a low place in life.
If you’ve ever felt numb, like the person you used to be got lost along the way, here’s a video for you. While it may not seem inspiring, I think sometimes just knowing there are others out there who feel the same can be encouraging and keep us moving forward. (official artist video not available at this time)
Here’s another one about how life can sometimes get the better of us, and the older we get, the more we lose a sense who we used to be. If you’ve ever been hurt or feel life has left you calloused, check this one out. Hopefully this will inspire you to unearth the youthful side of you that got buried somewhere along the way. (Powerful lyrics)
