Listen again

We all have songs we return to, sounds that wrap themselves around us like familiar arms. They glint at us with promise: a chance to revisit a feeling, a person, a moment. To listen is to trade the here and now for immersion in another time. Emotions we hide live in the music of our past. Some songs are just too painful.
