Erland “Hold Me Still”

“Hold me still when the world is shakin’, pick me up when my will is breakin’, love me with the mistakes I’m makin’ every day. I see you, breathe you in, and my heart starts racin’ again. It’s always been only us, days and months now years of this love. It’s amazin’ how you hold me still…”

Lyrics like that are so profound that they find themselves embedded in your soul. They take you to a place in the world that so few ever find, a place that finds you safe, secure and surrounded by a love so perfect and unconditional for an imperfect human being. A love that fills you up to the point of weeping and smiling because your cup runneth over. That’s what this song is, and conveys. Proof of the existence of that perfect, unconditional love that will pick you up time and time again no matter how many times you fall, and will forgive you no matter how many times you mess up, and will polish you to gleaming when you are at your dullest. It solidifies everything we may have ever doubted. It’s out there.

This is the culmination of the perfect song, no matter what you’re facing in your life, because it can help you answer so many questions, or question things that you never knew your soul needed answers to.
It’ll help you get in touch with parts of you that you didn’t know you were missing, and will calm your spirit, filling your heart with hope.

There is nothing more that I can say about this song that would do it any justice. The best thing I can do is tell you to listen to it and download it (On Soundcloud), then set it on repeat, and allow it to wrap you in its warm embrace and make you feel like you are worthy of being seen, and loved for who you are – flaws and all.
Because you are. We all are.
