My Thoughts: I cannot express how much I love this song! It is so emotionally powerful that I am brought close to tears every time I hear it.
It has an easy but yet beautiful and addictive piano part and I obsessively play it on the piano.
I found out about this song only about three weeks ago and I have listened to it so many times since then, I’ve listened to it sometimes on repeat all day.
One of the things I love about this song is if are you reading or watching something sad and you just thing about the song it can make everything sadder, it should be the soundtrack to all sad things in life, it’s an absolutely phenomenal song!
If you get any spare time in the next little while listen to this song, I really hope you love it as much as I do.
Christina Aguilera’s voice is just so angelic and beautiful, you can really get lost in this song.
My Favourite Part: There’s a part close to the end when everything goes like an octave louder and it’s really beautiful and powerful and then it goes quite again and I think that just adds to the emotion.
