Has there ever been a song that influenced you in any way? Or maybe, even changed something? I remember watching television where I happened to flip through a show called "Music is my life." It talks about how music saved people's lives. It helps them calm down and such. I can probably relate. I'll admit that I was an emo before. It was like.. 5 years ago. I didn't cut myself, but I did constantly hurt myself by doing stupid stuff. Not as bad as cutting your wrist though.. I always rejected everyone's opinions no matter how much they wanted to help me. Now that I look back at it, I smirk knowing that I was so stupid. I love the life I live right now. I'm just so much more optimistic now. Although the song may not be in English, nor did I know what the song meant, it was recommended to me by a friend. A close friend of mine from the past, all she said was "just listen to this song when you don't have someone to talk to. I tried convincing you, and it's starting to irritate me on how hard I try just to make you happy. You never seem to like anything anymore." I actually remember what she said word for word. The song is Every Heart by BoA. It's quite old. It's a japanese song. When the file finished transferring, I started listening to it. At first, I thought "it's okay" but I slowly grew attached to it. I was interested in the lyrics, so I looked it up. It wasn't something special, but for some reason, not knowing what the singer sang made it sound better. I wanted to learn more about Japanese because of this song, so I started watching anime and reading manga. Eventually, I started thinking less and less about stuff like committing suicide, hurting myself, hating people and such. Yeah.. I actually thought about committing suicide at that point of my life, but it's just a thought 'cause I know myself well enough that I wouldn't have the guts to do it. Although I don't watch anime anymore because I've out grown it, but because of this one song where it changed things for me, I know that music can actually save lives. From this one song, it changed my life quite dramatically. So, anyone else with a story where there's a particular song that changed them?
