The words are magical and resonate with me on many levels. To me they are about finding myself, being true to who I am and proud to be me.
“You’ve got to hang onto yourself”, pulls my emotions, stretches them out far in front of me exposing my soul.
“It’s like the sound of winter” talks to me of how bleak and yet how beautiful it is finding yourself.
“Let’s walk through the fire together” asks me to be grateful for those that are with me in love willing to take their chances and to support each other no matter what.
The song reaches me in other ways. I look at the YouTube video and I want to be young and free again and live a heady sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle. I want to stand on the stage and sing. I want to be noticed for me. Not hidden away but loud and proud of who I am and what got me here.

What are you playing today? What lyrics can’t you get out of your head? Do the words mean anything to you? When you look at the video what do you see? What should you be noticing about you and your thoughts?
