Song Of The Day: Dark Mind – Janine And The Mixtape


You ever heard the lyrics to a song and tears started coming down your cheeks? It’s like the artist is singing your life. That’s exactly what happened to me the first time I listened Janine And The Mixtape’s song Dark Mind. Starting with the first few lyrics of the song, my heart sunk:

Gonna love but I can fight
I had my childhood stolen from me one night
So I don’t care about a bruise
You think that cause I got a smile on my face
That I don’t know pain
We’ll look into my past but I ain’t going back again
Never again

If you can relate then you know what I mean. Whether if it was a Whitney Houston song, or even an Adele song then you know how I felt listening to this song. Dark Mind, was the perfect title for this song. It spoke to me. As I’m listening to this song now, I’m crying. Being a sexual abuse victim myself I see why she chosen this title. I felt her pain, but I also felt her happiness. We will NEVER forget our past, our minds will NEVER be the same. But we’re happy that we are no longer suffering.

Told you I’d survive made it out alive
And you can’t touch me now
And though my mind won’t be the same
It’s over
Told you I’d survive made it out alive
And you can’t touch me now
And though my mind won’t be the same
I’m still around
