Music Mondays – The XX

The pain I felt as I lost a parent is gut wrenching. The scar it left is etched into my heart. A painful reminder that I can never hear their voice, feel their touch and see them smile.

I don’t even know where to start as I type out my emotions about losing someone. I don’t want to.

Brave For You by The XX touched me the moment I heard it. It reminds me that I have to find it within me to continue living. My father might be physically gone, but he is with me, always.

In all I know
And what I’ve done
I take you along
Though you’re not here
I can feel you there
I take you along

And when I’m scared
I imagine you’re there
Telling me to be brave

So I will be brave for you
Stand on a stage for you
Do the things that I’m afraid to do
I know you want me to
I will be brave

It is excruciatingly painful to lose someone. I am saddened by the fact that my father is not here anymore. I don’t have someone to call dad. I don’t have someone to annoy. I don’t have someone to lean and count on. A parent’s love is priceless and irreplaceable but I will be brave.

Yet again, The XX has produced quality music.

Brave For You is only one of the ten amazing songs from the new album of The XX entitled I See You. They have outdone themselves. I love the diversity of the music and, of course, the message of each and every track. I am linking their whole album instead of just this single, Brave For You. I hope you enjoy this album as much as I have! 

Personal Faves: Lips, A Violent Noise, Brave For You, Replica, I Dare You, Performance, Dangerous, On Hold.

To keep it short and simple: I'm twenty-seven years old. Still plenty young, but not as young as I used to be.
