34 Light Me Up - Kobra and the Lotus

When I heard this song and watched the video I cried. This song is so emotional. It is about a kid being hurt and abused, and a person follows them, and in the last scene convinces the young child not to suicide by jumping off a bridge. Though I would have no idea what he’d do, because in one of the shots his parents are abusing him and drinking alcohol. Beautiful song that has a meaning, brought tears to my eyes. Also check out “You don’t know” by Kobra and the Lotus
