Video of Responses for the First 10 Days

This video captures the responses the wall has received in the first ten days to the tune of Train's "When I Look to the Sky". Some responses will make you laugh while others will make you reflect and on your own life. Below you will find lyrics to the song and how it applies to the Before I Die concept.

Train - "When I Look to the Sky"
When it rains it pours and opens doors
And floods the floors we thought would always keep us safe and dry
And in the midst of sailing ships we sink our lips into the ones we love
That have to say goodbye

And as I float along this ocean

I can feel you like a notion that won't seem to let me go 

'Cause when I look to the sky something tells me you're here with me
And you make everything alright
And when I feel like I'm lost something tells me you're here with me
And I can always find my way when you are here

And every word I didn't say that caught up in some busy day

And every dance on the kitchen floor we didn't dance before
And every sunset that we'll miss I'll wrap them all up in a kiss
And pick you up in all of this when I sail away

Whether I am up or down or in or out or just plane overhead

Instead it just feels like it is impossible to fly
But with you I can spread my wings
To see me over everything that life may send me
When I am hoping it won't pass me by

And when I feel like there is no one that will ever know me

There you are to show me 

How the song correlates with the "Before I Die" concept

What's so wonderful about music is that it speaks to people in many diverse ways and on different levels. While the band Train's intention of the song was to encourage those serving in the military and those they love, many people find this song comforting after the death of a loved one. Either way, the song is talking about a loss of a someone they love and care about. This song brings comfort and hope to listeners as they realize that they aren't alone in their time of loss. The Before I Die wall concept works to bring people together to help them realize that we aren't alone, just like this song.
