I have a favorite artist named NF. So far I’m the only one I know that’s a huge fan, I assume that’s because we’re all loners, and probably have issues that are difficult for others to understand. That’s okay though, the music unites us.
He has a new album out titled Therapy Session and I just keep listening to a song called Wish You Were Here.
I’m not going into this to much, but I thought I’d share a part that just makes me desperately wish that I could talk to him;
You took them pills for the last time didn’t you
They took you from us once, guess they came back to finish you
Crying my eyes out in the studio is difficult
Music is the only place that I can go to speak to you
Took me everything inside of me to not scream at your funeral
The song is about him loosing his mom to a drug overdose. That’s not something that’s happened to me- but loss, I get that, and the anger/loss combo is especially hard. I get really funky around the topic of death, and I don’t really deal with it to well.
The anger- I battle with forgiveness, and that’s an understanding that I wish I could convey to this guy that’s in a lot of pain, but I can’t. I can’t express my own experience, I haven’t touched on it here, don’t know if I ever will.
Maybe it’s meant for us to feel this way, for the greater good or something? I don’t know, maybe it’s meant to help another generation, or to bring us together, or something. Who knows?
