I like the message. There are so many girls with talent and great voices out there these days.

Well darkness has a hunger that's insatiable
And lightness has a call that's hard to hear
I wrap my fear around me like a blanket
I sailed my ship of safety 'til I sank it

I will not be someone other than who I am
I will fight to make my stand
Cause what is living if I can't live free?
What is freedom if I can't be me?

Here's one that is about being trans.
Everyone in this video is a trans woman

First we had a horse without name riding through the desert, now we have a girl who doesn't know her name.
I do not understand why this reflects trans people? Don't we actully know pretty precisely who we are?

They drop an f-bomb or two if that bothers anyone.

I think some people who are struggling with dysphoria and figuring out who they are can feel isolated and without an identity or name, especially if they're in that middle zone where their dead name doesn't fit them but they haven't found their own name.

Another way to interpret not having a name is that is a way to lament the amount of erasure and defining out of existence that happens to people in the trans (as well as intersex) community

I am intersex, and kind of trans, but I never got the idea to reflect my being in some songs just for the sake of finding any analogy. My version of autism may be a barrier me doing so?
Or I simply do not fit into any box?

Everybody has different things that work and don't work for them I suppose :) For myself, I express myself a lot through the music I listen to cause I've been in areas for so long where I can't express my emotions and thoughts.

In the late 50s, early 60s, when I was your age, we hardly were allowed to have any emotions or show any feelings. The world was very binary, and one was mostly forced to fit in.
This might be the reason that so many trans people finally come out in their 60s and 60s.
We were pushed into boxes or closets, and were made to fit. I was lucky and had loving and understanding parents, but when I left our house, I had to hop into the approptiate box, and in my case, had to act like a guy, while my body clearly was not that of a guy. But nobody cared about my feelings.

I've posted this great anthem here a couple of time but obviously missed this thread:


There's also a great version of the same song here when Keala Settle first really nailed it during rehearsals for The Greatest Showman. I still get teary whenever I play either version.
Enjoy!

I'm going to go ahead and post that version directly. Great energy. Thanks Kenna.



I used this song as an intro to my thread on a different forum a couple years ago. At the time the version I liked best was Kesha's
