“Aside” by The Weakerthans
This song touches me every time I hear it because I feel such a strong connection to it. The line “terrified of drowning in the pools of other lives” could very well sum me up. I’m also “leaning on this broken fence between past and present tense” because I’m at the point where I’m looking back longingly at the familiar life of high school while being on the precipice of college.
It’s so incredibly important to have a song that you connect with so deeply that it’s almost scary. Maybe a year from now I’ll look back and laugh at how I was such an “angst filled teenager” for loving this song, but at the moment I couldn’t pick one better to define myself.
