Clear Intentions in Songs and Life

The best songs are transparent. The level of complexity may vary, and there’s a spectrum of literal to abstract, but with the good stuff you can always feel a clear intention. As in music, so in life.

“you were my best four years” — literal
“one particular harbor” — picture
“seasons will pass you by; I get up, I get down” — evocative

All so different, all so beautiful. Like our lives.
