    I am in the middle of the song but damn the visuals and the music and the lyrics. This song is something I needed to hear. You can't take my youth away can be interpreted in many ways, but for me it's about not letting the pain taking my life, telling me only the bad side of this world… I remember saying myself I don't wanna live anymore and it sounds crazy for me now but that's what I thought because I didn't know the value of life… Please don't take your youth, your life, your spirit away I swear that if you are in this world it's not just because, you're surely meant to reach dreams, to fulfill your purpose, so do not stop until you find it.
