#34: “Halo”

SONG: “Halo”
ARTIST: Oleander

When I first heard this song, I thought to myself, this is the perfect description on what depression felt like for me when I was fighting it. By the time this song was gifted to my life, I had battled the hardest parts of my depression and had overcome it, but was nice to have a song that was able to capture what the battlefield in my soul felt like. 
“And it’s always little things, that to the surface brings. The comfort in the pain. The fear behind the smile…There’s an anchor around my heart, dragging me down. Beneath the waves in silence I fall. There’s a halo above my head spinning me ’round ‘cuz I don’t know if I’m alive or dead. There’s a dagger in my hand bleeding me dry…”
