Most Nights, I Don’t Know

There are times when I feel like this. “Some nights I wish that my lips could build a castle, some nights I wish they’d just fall off.”

It’s funny, the first time I heard this song, I had to check the radio station. Was the local Pop40/Rap/EDM station really playing a screaming Celtic march song? What was going on here? I mean, it comes on between Avicii and Kanye West, and you’re like what? Real drums. Meaningful lyrics? Even a pipe at the end? Seriously? Then you watch the video and it is a telling story of a tragic war. It’s rare these days you see an actual song with meaning and power.

I was having a rough time when this song came out and it really spoke to me. Sometimes, even if you are not quite sure what you stand for, the important thing is to keep fighting. Or maybe the important thing is to know when to quit. See, most nights, I don’t know.
