Let The Night Come

I can’t seem to stop listening to “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore.  Especially the video.

The song grabs me.  It holds on tight.  And I can’t sit still.
Why am I so addicted?

It’s the passion.  The energy.

For me, music is nothing without passion and energy.  It’s why I love Nina Simone.  It’s why I love Bob Marley.  People who speak to us, deep within us, and shake our universe in such a way that even when the song is over, we’ve been forever changed.  Singers who’s songs never really leave us.

Which is why I made this image tonight, with a quote from the video’s version of the song:

Let the Night Come

Let the night come, before the fight’s won,
Some might run against the test.
But those that triumph, embrace the fight ’cause,
Their fears then prove that courage exists.

Never abandon hope.

Raw!  :)
