I have a lot of feelings about Nathan Sharp
If Nate wasn’t my favorite artist already, the new “StopRewind” music definitely put him there. (Tied with Dodie of course lol)
I never paid attention to the lyrics before. But after watching the video, I understand it a lot better. It’s about pushing through when life sucks because someday you’re gonna be where you want to be, even if you don’t know it yet. The video showed him reaching out to the “exit” many times, just to put him right back where he didn’t want to be.
Because if you focus too hard on how much you hate where you are, it takes focus away from working through to make sure you reach your dreams.
His face when he saw the collage of all his videos (including his tour announcement, which I noticed, that was a nice touch) just kind of made me want to cry. He’s come ridiculously far, and looking back on all the things he’s done must be incredibly surreal.
Man, imagine looking into the future just to see a screen full of the things you’ve achieved ten years from now. There are so many amazing things in store.
The video sort of helped me restore hope in myself. I’ve had a difficult time believing that I’m ever going to reach my dreams, but if Nate can do it, so can I.
So thank you Nate, even if you’re not going to see this. Thank you for following your dreams, thank you for giving me another wonderful role model to look up to, thank you for making this video, thank you for EVERYTHING.
