Love is made up of these two strong forms of love. It’s something that no one can touch, and if you have it, you can make it through any kind of darkness. I really believe that.”


    She continues: “I wrote the song about going through hardships to want to do something to protect the person you love, even if you don’t know what someone with such a faint light as yourself can do. It’s a powerful and straightforward feeling that I’m sure everyone has deep instead their heart.”
