The German “sturm und drang” translates (literally) to “storm and drive”, but is loosely translated
to the phrase, “storm and stress”. “Sturm und drang" was an 18th century German artistic
movement that expressed emotional unrest.
There are people in my life that struggle with depression, anxiety and addiction. I’ve lost
friends to suicide, and my family grieve friends lost to suicide. Some of which, we had no idea
were struggling. This song is the embodiment of my regret for not seeing that they were hurting.
But it is also me trying to reach out to all of you. To say that I am here for you and there are
people in your life that love you and would do anything for you. Absolutely anything to have you
here, or to have you back.
The lyrics constantly fight between wanting to help, and not wanting to ask for help in
fear of being a burden. I know that in my life there are people that I would put aside everything
that I’m dealing with, just to help them and show them that they are wanted and they are loved.
“Don’t tell me it’s the end, I’d lay down my life for you.”
