#20 – Echo by Jason Walker

I relate songs to memories, more often than not. This song is one that a friend asked me to hear when I was feeling low. I don’t know what did it, if it was the lyrics or the tune, but I fell in love with it then and it has been in my playlist since. It’s one of my go-to songs when I need a bit of cheering up. Music is something I find very cathartic, almost as much as writing, if not more.

I have heard other songs from the artist Jason Walker after that, but nothing compares to this one. I shared it with my sister too, and she still tells me the same, that this song is one that she loves. We sang along with it when we last went on a trip and were listening to it. So that’s another happy memory that this song is associated with.

The part of the lyrics I love the most?

Sometimes when I close my eyes
I pretend I’m alright
But it’s never enough

Cause my echo, echo
Is the only voice coming back
Shadow, shadow
Is the only friend that I have

It’s just so… damn beautiful.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
