To me this song represents sorrow and loneliness, towards the end of the song there's a sense of realization that things do pass and eventually you are at peace with it. Just like life and death.

This song has so much strength that it always seems to bring me to tears. Good tears. Tears of someone who wants to see themselves better again.

1:10 OMG I love it. I remember I'd get so frustrated when I'd always squeak out a false harmonic when I didn't mean to and could never seem to get one out when I actually meant to haha. But here it's used to such great melancholic effect. The faltering between false harmonic and real tone is ethereally beautiful and reminiscent of someone's voice breaking during a soulful song.

I love how a lot of the comments here are so melancholy and honestly, this song really hits me. I listen to this song a lot when I feel very lonely and it really fills my void of loneliness here. I gotta say that violin makes me feel so sad

3:21 It's like the violin themselves are crying

정말 심적으로 힘들었을때 더 힘들게 했던 노래라 첫 반주 3초만에 그때 그 시절이 99%느껴짐.. ㅠ 힘들었을때 왜 자꾸 들었는지 이해가 안갔지만..
