“It’s one of the most honest pieces of music I have ever written. With our video, I truly feel that Dan brought to life the raw emotion that I felt when I first put these words down on paper. I went through some dark times trying to find the kind of surrender that is expressed in this song. What did pain teach me? It taught me that true relief comes from letting go. Pain is the resistance to letting go, for the actual letting go is painless. What is beyond the pain is more simple. Its stillness. And that is the core challenge of life. To learn to let go of everything. For we have no other choice. This experience is temporary. And when you achieve letting go, when you loosen your grip, peace is found.” – Aja Volkman of TWO
