"You’ve come such a long way
With no one to comfort you or tell you you’re needed.
You and I come from the same place
But if I were to come for you
What’s there left to believe in?"
Calliope! by The Veils. Written by Finn Andrews.
When they ask me why this is my favourite song I tend to say it’s because it speaks to me at such a deep level both lyrically and musically and when I say I partly wish someone could think and feel about me the way Calliope! speaks I refer to this lines specifically, because to think all I’ve endured and gone through that I never wanted the world to see (not for shame but because I don’t believe in sympathy out of lament) has been understood and appreciated by a kindred spirit will give so much meaning to everything. I count my blessing starting from the fact my eyes can always see the silver lining, and that’s a disposition, that is a gift, but to find another such pair of eyes who’d really, truly understand, I think life would get a bonus in meaning, doubled all of a sudden.
