The first time music ever spoke to me was when I first listened to Bridge Over Troubled Water. Lyrics such as “a man just hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest,” made me fall in love with the album, as it made me reflect more upon society’s values, and prompted me to question my own. There are more metaphorical lyrics such as “Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down”. This resonated with me, since as someone who has dealt with an alcoholic mother, I sometimes felt I would never get across that water. But Simon and Garfunkel taught me to build a bridge and cross over it into better times, and so I did.
