ThoughtQuestion #793: What's a song that contains a lesson you live by?

I don't know that I have only one song that I live by, but I do know that there's a handful of songs that continue to speak to me as the years pass, songs that I will replay whenever they come up on shuffle.

Right now, the inside of my head looks an awful lot like a Florence + The Machine music video, and I'm totally alright with that. She speaks to something that needs to be spoken to inside me, and we seem to have similar ideas of how fantasy and reality intersect.

But here's a playlist of songs to know the inside of my head, in whatever order I think of them in:

Florence + The Machine - What the Water Gave Me
