"When you get those rare moments of clarity, those flashes when the universe makes sense, you try desperately to hold on to them. They are the life boats for the darker times, when the vastness of it all, the incomprehensible nature of life is completely illusive. So the question becomes, or should have been all a long... What would you do if you knew you only had one day, or one week, or one month to live. What life boat would you grab on to? What secret would you tell? What band would you see? What person would you declare your love to? What wish would you fulfill? What exotic locale would you fly to for coffee? What book would you write?"

It really, really does. What else is Out there to turn a horrible day into a bearable day? What else can make you want to dance and wiggle and laugh and smile for no other apparent reason? Music makes you smile just because. Music calms you down. Music heals.
Music shows you that you are not alone And you can relate to whoever wrote the lyrics- it's a reminder that at least one other person in this universe knows how you feel.
