Soundtrack

Written by Jacob Ibrag

I miss this song. It’s from the yesterdays of a former

emotion. A feeling from another moment. And when I hear this

song, I become that person. I’m physically him. I’m confused because I

remember what happens, just not what drives me into those decisions.

I’m a visitor with a soundtrack, in a world I will never have back.

    There’s something about music, isn’t there? It’s kind of like a sense of smell that connects directly, primitively.

    Your line about being a “visitor with a soundtrack” – this idea that we can somehow become alien even to our own selves – that line will stick with me a long while.
