The first time I heard this song, I was listening to my friend’s playlist. In the midst of Master Ace, Linkin Park, Funk Masta Flex etc, this song lunged at me. My friend is sort of the “hardcore” type and this song being on his playlist was odd. I guess even hard asses have a sentimental bone in their body.
The lyrics are powerful. And so so transcendent. I fell in love with it immediately.
Little wonder that Maya loved the song so much, she wished she wrote it herself.
