why self-expression matters

I Saw You in the Water a line in the song Cringe by Matt Maeson

Matt Maeson – Cringe (Stripped) Lyrics

I first heard Cringe – stripped version by Matt Maeson, it was on the radio – haven’t heard on the radio since, it has now been months. I searched the song online and found it on YouTube. As I was listening, I scrolled down to the comments – it was very heartbreaking to read what people had to say, they were moved enough to share and wanted to discuss.

I said just tired and she said you’re just tired, leaves the listener thinking that “she said” high and not tired and I heard fine so…

The line Don’t I make you cringe seems to be a bit confessional and also realizing that life can bring us to our knees.

Also the line I saw you in the water, seems to be a topic discussion – “what does it mean.” It can mean a variety of things, depending who’s listening so maybe it can be a simple as water heals.

When art comes from pain we have an opportunity to open up a little more. To be able to sit with the pain takes practice and it seems that’s why we need to keep listening, reading and telling stories so that the pain may dissipate even if it’s just for a bit.
