“Breathe (2am)” by Anna Nalick

I love this song. It’s a great reminder to “just breathe,” and I love the metaphors she uses.

Unexpected Perspective Shift

I don’t believe in failure
Cause I know the smallest voices, they can make it major

-from “Seven Years” by Lukas Graham-

I heard this song for the first time today. I was in the car, driving home from school. This song is a really good song, with a unique beat and beautiful, heartfelt lyrics. The DJ had compared it to the “100 Years” by Five for Fighting. I wouldn’t put it quite at the same level, but it’s very similar in a lot of ways.

And yes, they can be the same problems.
