Dani - Blue

“blue is a song about never changing the human spirit that lives inside your heart, even in the moments of our lives we feel emotionally crippled and incapable, navigating through difficult experiences and emotions that chip away the vulnerable parts of our hearts and amplify our deepest conflicts. To always live and be the real you whatever the weather.”
