I don’t believe in heaven, I don’t believe in hell and I don’t know if there’s a god up there.
BUT – I believe in Bruce Springsteen and I believe that with music comes absolution.
Bruce’s speech is funny, smart and so damn honest. The man puts all my feelings about music…hell, all my feelings about life into words. He takes this intangible snarl of static and stretches it out – like boardwalk taffy – until it’s linear and makes sense.
I’m seeing him in two weeks and my little heart almost can’t handle it.
I will be in the same room as this man. This amazing man whose words and music have changed my life. A man I believe in as much as I believe in the men I love.
If you love music in any capacity whatsoever. If it affects your life in any way — listen to this address.
I’m not saying it will change your life, but it warmed my soul.
And I’m the girl who doesn’t know if the human soul exists…until she listens to Bruce Springsteen.
