    Reminds me of my budgies. They would often sing to me when I enter the room. At first i didnt understand why, then after this song, i realized they wanted my attention. They wanted me to feed them and to keep their light on

    Always my favourite of hers. From the moment I first heard it it resonated with me on the deepest level and the video stunned me. I feel so uplifted everytime I hear this song & it reminds me to keep opening the cage everytime I end up putting myself back in it. It's time to open the cage. ❤️

    J'espère que tu a un homme dans ta vie digne de tes envies... Qui t'épaul aux échelles de tes mélodies de ces mondes.... Force a toi..

    This song tells a good story line about her being stuck in a cage.
    She is trying to find out what to o in there.
    Ten she was confused about all the light bulbs and candles.
    She starts to see the light around her.

    I have a son in prison, more often than not, I feel like am doing time with him. This song made very sad, but happy to realize that
    though music, there is Hope in the Light (of Christ).

    This song inspired me to write a poem, hope everyone likes it 😊
    Doors that will not open
    Lights that will not light
    I will play my song
    Watch me shine so bright
    The dark is just a canvas
    A cage is just a room
    Block the sun, turn on the night
    And I'll dance by the light of the moon

    in 2012 I was a 10 year old with a sociopathic narcissistic mother who left me alone with my baby sister at home for days on end. when she was home she would yell and give me black eyes and make me clean the house all day. She had a severe eating disorder so she never had food in the house other than some vegetables she basically starved me and made me terrified of most kinds of food. Neglected, lost and scared I felt like I was trapped for so long. I didn't know what internet was or video games or anything that my classmates were talking about. I felt like I was in a different world entirely from them and the rest of this world. I was completely alone and isolated, so terrified of the unknown. I didn't speak to people other than my sister my entire life because I was so crippled by my anxiety. at school I would read alone and isolate myself from everyone. I felt worthless, miniscule compared to everyone else. like I didnt deserve to play. I didn't deserve to even be close to them. By middle school a girl tried to talk to me and I ran away crying. she kept finding me and talking my ear off and we eventually became best friends. she introduced me to TVclip and Google and told me i should listen to Lindsey Stirling and showed me this video. I cried so hard. this gave me so much hope. Lindsey really helped me back then💗 now, many suicide attempts and homeless teen shelters later, I'm 17 and I'm away from my abusive mom. I'm still angry that she took my childhood away, but I'm moving on. as well as a few other things and people, Lindsey's music has helped me fight so many battles and find my inner strength, light and will to live. I'm forever grateful for this gorgeous talented lady💗
