I’ll be honest, I didn’t know much about Poor Nameless Boy in the past, and I still don’t know much now.
But a few weeks ago on my way to somewhere, when I was playing a Spotify list that the app recommends you based on an algorithm, “Leave Myself Behind” shuffled along, and I was blown away!!!
Find the song here. Track 10
I felt thrown back into the deepest pits of my adolescence, and looked around, trying to find the person who watches me and makes Joel Henderson write lyrics that reflect my agony.
I don’t want to break the song down, or analyze the lyrics here.
I just wish that everyone gives this song a listen, and decides for themselves to which part of their lives it takes them to reflect, and eventually gain a little bit of energy through learning once again that our hopes that our walks through darkness won’t last forever, and that someone or something will have our back at some point come true.
