I can’t express how excited I am to put this song out there! I have had it done for over a year now but have been stuck on one measure. I couldn’t figure out what I was playing. I finally found an awesome friend to help me and now my song is complete! My husband loves this song and always asks me to play it. It starts out slow but picks up intensity.
I wrote this song because I was so inspired by the woman in this video, who has now become pretty famous. I’ve seen her story in a few different places. I took the things she talked about in this video and put music to those feelings.
Here’s the song broken down with the measures and feelings and/or circumstances I was writing about:
Measure 1-5 Laying on the ground right after crash. Measure 6-9 Feeling that things would be ok right before she went into coma. Measure 10-16 Waking up in hospital: “coming out of the coma was really hard and painful.” Measure 17-27 I imagined how she would feel coming to a realization of her new body. Measure 28 and beyond is the confirmation that her new life is good despite the new challenge. I also just did what sounded good from there on out 🙂
