Relationships do not get easier. Every day is a struggle. Every day is a battle. It doesn`t get easier with time. In fact, it gets harder. The secret is finding someone who`s willing to be weak and strong with you at the same time. The secret is finding someone who`s willing to work with you and who will push you, challenge you, make it harder for you to leave. The beauty is in the struggle.
My friend, Gabby Medina (whose voice is just so beautifully soulful), and I singing a cover of a cover by Alicia Keys and Adam Levine of The Rolling Stones song, Wild Horses. What a beautiful song.
It’s is said to be about Mick Jagger’s old girlfriend, Marianne Faithfull. The story goes something like Mick and Keith Richards both went to see Marianne in the hospital. She was brought in due to an overdose of drugs and alcohol and almost died. The two of them were standing by her side when she came to and one of them said, “Marianne, we thought we’d lost you.” But Marianne replied, “Not even ten wild wild horses could drag me from this world!”
“Wild horses, couldn’t take me away…”
Ofcourse, I’m not so sure how true or accurate this story is. Nevertheless, it’s such a beautiful song and I hope we did it some justice… well, for sure Gabby did. Enjoy. :)
