Mixtape Monday: I Woke Up Thinking You Were Still Here

I fell asleep to the sounds of wind and the leaves and soil it touches... and then I woke up thinking you were still here.

Songs for nights and afternoons spent ugly-crying, reading what's written on public spaces, for those who still can't get up the nerve to stop composing passive aggressive texts... for those who still can't look into the eyes of their former lovers without feeling pain, for the heavy hearted, for vacant bodies carrying feelings without a space to contain it.

When it feels like you're only going backwards, get up... let go, dance.
