Lorde - “Ribs”
This song is my drug as of lately. I can’t stop listening to it. The lyrics are somewhat too young for me, seeing as I am not a teenager anymore, but I can understand the ‘fear of getting old’.
Listening to the song made me realize that I am a grown-up, eventhough I haven’t felt like one before. It is scary, the feeling of growing up, of being fully responsible. And then with the realization of being an adult comes this feeling like a piece of you has died, an innocence, your inner child.
Yes, it is scary getting old.
This song speaks to my heart and soul.
