Music On, World Off: “Cactus In The Valley” by LIGHTS
Welcome to a brand new segment I like to call Music On, World Off. Keepin’ it fresh in 2013. 😉
Music On, World Off is basically me telling you guys about a certain song I’m infatuated with while attempting to attach some moral story behind it. Enjoy!
One album I’ve been playing nx since its October 2011 release is Siberia by LIGHTS. Every song on that album holds a special place in my heart but “Cactus In The Valley” has been my go-to song for bad days. It’s basically about falling down and making mistakes but sometimes while you’re in the midst of those mistakes, people are judging you on your character; sometimes those people are the ones closest to you and while it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re a bad person, you can’t help but feel like one. “Cactus In The Valley” is a plea to those you may have hurt along the way to just bear with you. It holds some of my favorite lyrics in a song ever and I find myself relating to it every time I find myself in unfortunate situations. I’m only human, right?
“Wipe the mark of madness from my face. Show me that your love will never change. If my yesterday is a disgrace, tell me that you still recall my name.”
What songs can you relate to at the moment?
