Afraid of the Light
When you see visual artwork, it’s human to make some sense of it. A meaning or interpretation that is obvious or even deeper in relating to oneself. The same can be done with music.
It amazes me when I understand or feel a certain way to a song while listening and realize how different it is from the artist’s intentions in the music video.
The words of the Cults song “You Know What I Mean” expresses to the bone what has become of my life.
It’s as literal as it can be said:
“Help me cause I’m feeling shaky”
“Tell me what’s wrong with my brain, cause I seem to have lost it”
“I am afraid of the light”
“I can’t sleep alone at night”
“Lonely, that’s not quite my problem”
“I have all that I need”
“I try so hard to be happy”
“Please, please come and save me”
