You know that feeling when your heart is crushed under the weight of the world, and you think you will fall to your knees, or curl up in a ball, or hide under the blankets and never come out? So you drink 4 vodka martinis and watch X-files reruns until you pass out? But then you have to go deal with life, and you aren’t sure how you are going to do that because you aren’t even sure you can move, but you manage to crawl over to your ipod and find your favorite song, and then you hit “play” and you start singing to it, and at first it almost hurts because your heart is so jammed shut, so afraid to feel anything, but you keep singing and gradually you start to breathe more deeply, and your chest starts to open, and you feel a little uplifted because your blood is infused with oxygen, and it starts to become easier to sing, and then there’s that one part in the song where the melody is so sweepingly beautiful, and just the perfect range for your voice, and the lyrics just hit the nail on the head, so you sing along, and your heart cracks open and you start to soar, and then you burst into tears because you’ve been holding it all inside for so long and it is such a relief to just let go and let yourself be carried away by the power of the song, feeling all the emotion that the artist was feeling, and sharing that moment with the artist as you sing together in harmony and union, and the shackles of your self-imposed prison start to tremble and and then shatter completely, and you feel truly free again?
Well, I want to do that with you.
