slow down my beating heart

This song never fails to give me goosebumps.

I remember I was in the midst of year 12 when this album was released.  Reduced to depressive, stress-riddled sobbing one day, I had this song playing on the stereo in my room.  I sat on my bed, facing the stereo - tears streaming down my face.  I didn't know what to do, there wasn't anyone that could help me; life was hard, making decisions was difficult - I didn't want to plan the rest of my life, I just wanted to survive the year. As I sat there, surrounded by song, I willed Bonos words to come true; I told myself... in a little while things will be better...just a little while longer.
