That’s what makes us human.
Feeling things–even pain.
That’s what music does,
if it’s any good: it makes you feel things.
You listen to a song,
and somehow you know what that person was going through when he wrote it.
Or maybe it puts a name to what you’re feeling.
And because you can share that, you don’t feel so alone.
