Thoughts on Songs with Skylar Grey
Making all this effort to catch the attention of people around you and make them look beyond your image, to look for what's in your heart, is not worth it most of the times, especially if what you're trying to present is opposite to what you truly are. I guess it's better to let out your truth rather than faking and screaming through irrelevant actions.
It's amazing how this song can lift you up when you're pretty damaged by a break-up. I love how it's presenting the other side of this coin, that it doesn't matter that the place next to you is empty and your heart as well, at this very moment there is space for even more happiness!
