Comfort and Reassurance...

The thought of the human need for comfort and reassurance has been lingering in my mind for several months now and I was sure that I had started writing about it, but could not find any saved material except for some things that I jotted down a few months ago. Looking at it now, it is rather raw or rough, so I felt I should remove some bits. Actually...  as I was reading it over again, I realize that it could be totally misinterpreted so I feel that I can only share one line. " Never felt that need for reassurance before, so why now?"  One word came to mind then... one word still. 

I was thinking of "I'm Broken" by Pantera, but I couldn't remember all the words, so I went to check the lyrics... and.. ah... not quite suitable for this. My other choice was "Broken" by Seether, which is closer to the intent of this post, but... yes.. a little too sappy. However... sappy or not, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to post this most excellent version of that song.

Incredible song...I'm sure I relate to Seether and their music in some different ways then most folks but this was the music I related to the most in the final year of my addiction. They were tapping into some of the same emotions I was feeling everyday.

The song The Gift, well to this day it still evokes those emotions in me. Funny thing though, instead of wanting to forget about that music which can evoke memories of that time, I still like listening to those songs very much. An they feeling liberating today..

I agree... great song... I first heard it as a duet with Amy Lee on the Punisher (2004) movie soundtrack. When I went looking for the song to embed, I found a few, but this live version was it for me. I think I have only heard a couple of their songs, but will definitely check out The Gift.

And... from my point of view, I think it is, for lack of a better word, rather remarkable that you HAVE actual memories of that time in your life. It is a good thing that it is music that can take you back, bring you back, and take you forward, so to speak.
