This song is included on the album soundtrack to my favourite musical, RENT. The lyrics are simply beautiful, and the imagery is gorgeous. The harmonies are so well-performed and Larson is one of the greatest song writers that I have ever come across.
But more than that, I have found the messages within it to be true. Whenever I have problems within my own life, I am fortunate enough to have wonderful people to rely upon and give me the love that I need while I am unable to love myself.
I think that before I met my best friends and my partner, I was quite closed off from society. I struggled to put my faith into anything but my studies but they taught me that there are people that are worth trusting. They keep me afloat when I need help and I am ever so grateful to have them.
I have plenty of other things to keep me going when I get down, such as my studies and a sense of duty, but having those close to me gives me a better and more positive reason to keep trying.
Love heals in a way that few other things can. Love is the most important thing in my life, and as long as I have people to share it with, I can’t help but be happy.
