Day 13 - 30 Days of Truth

Day 13 - A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days. (write a letter.)

Wow...If I had to pick one band/artist that has gotten me through some tough days my initial gut thought is Lifehouse. They have so many songs that just plain fit to the world going on around me. So...

Dear Lifehouse,

Thank you for producing and putting out music that speaks to the current state of my soul. It Is What It is is a song that just calms me and allows my brain to process what I'm feeling/thinking. The lyrics are just common sense and it's simply putting what's going on can't necessarily be changed - it is what it is. I've included three of my favorite songs, via video, and why they are important to me.

The song All In just rocks because it's the truth. If you're going to decide to do something you have to be all in. Just reaffirms my decision to continue to do what J and I have been doing and going through.

Whatever It Takes just rocks and again, just reaffirms that I'm - we're - willing to do whatever it takes to reach our goal.

I guess all in all my point in this letter is that you make music with lyrics that are just as moving as the music. I'm also in love with Storm because to me it basically means that it's ok to be mad even if there isn't anyone to blame - that sometimes things just happen.

So finally, in conclusion - thank you Lifehouse. I don't know how you keep doing it or if the songs are as meaningful to you as they are to me but thank you and definitely keep it up.

PS. If you could also release your music to (or show interest to seeing your songs on) Glee...'cause well that would just rock. :)

Random Fact: During the day, if someone sings a song around you, 90% chance you will find yourself singing it sometime during the day!

DUUUDE! Lifehouse rocks! Their song Storm was part of my MANTRA during those hell years. Good choice friend I definitely agree! :)
