A song can sometimes move you in ways that nothing else can. The right lyrics and the perfect beat can sometimes make the strongest of men fall to their knees or it can give you hope, strength, and determination to do anything. What people forget is that when you take away everything and just leave the lyrics then the song loses its soul.
