After loving Metric for 16 years, I finally saw them live 💜 “is this my life? Am I breathing underwater?” [A dark stadium with a purple-lit stage on the left and cell phone flashlights lit up to the right]
Ugh I wish I had recorded the whole song. That never ending battle between capturing a moment and just being IN the moment. This song takes me back and gives me goosebumps and makes me feel all the feelings. This stripped down version with Emilys vocals.. Gah 💯💯💯 #artofdoubt#metricmusic#loveisaplace

Emily Haines says: "When you’re suddenly confronted with the fact that you’re rapidly running out of time to take action in your life, it isn’t always pretty. You can no longer afford the luxury of words like “eventually”, or indulge in the usual superficial fixes. “Now or Never Now” is the song for anyone who has stagnated, paralyzed by past failures (real or imagined), in a state of regret. It’s the song for that point when you realize there’s no escaping what you’re trapped in unless you’re willing to get hurt again. Everything sucks in an exhilarating way. There’s nothing left to do but start over." This song has hit me in the gut since the first time I heard it. It feels like.. If I was a song writer.. This is the exact song I would have written for this chapter of my life. ❤️ #metricmusic@metric#emilyhaines #lyricsforlife
I am infinitely grateful to be one of the many rad humans featured in the new @metric music video, Love You Back.
That band lit the fire in my teenage rebel heart at age 15 and it continues to burn to this very day, never to go out, despite the many tragic events that occurred since that time.
I know in my ultra passionate & radioactive heart that it was the music of Metric, along with a multifaceted array other extraordinary musical artists whom I love as much as life itself, that kept me going after my brain injury, during the darkest of nights.
Even though they only used the film we made three brief times during the official music video, I cannot express in words how much it means to me to be apart of this piece. It made me cry yesterday when the video premiered and I’m crying again right now. It is such a HUGE HONOR to be involved in their music in this way. Life truly does come full circle. It is starting to feel like mine is doing another revolution further still, to a starry universe far out in space, where there is nothing but possibility, nothing but light, and nothing but time.
MUCHAS GRACIAS @trashcancut@pueblodreamzzz@qat_lo and Lauren Julia for all of your help in creating our film Metric featured; just more radical evidence that the world I live in is moving forward to a bizarre new existence where every single day is a waking dream. You are all heroes in my life and I feel extremely blessed to have made such beautiful new friendships in this most majestic city of Los Angeles. I will be posting our film very soon. In the meantime, visit your nearest YouTube to see the full version of the official Love You Back video by Metric.
PEACE & LOVE & DREAMS & LIFE
"Because the last time I let myself feel this way/
It was a long, long time ago/
And now we get so scared, and we get so scared/
To be nowhere left alone."
My favorite band, Metric, really hit home with this one. The fact that music can reach us on personal levels and evoke feeling is something magical. This song really speaks to me. To be vulnerable and FEEL can be so scary. And to be alone and feeling lost when all we want is to be loved is hard to come to terms with. You find yourself questioning who you are, what you stand for, why this is happening to you and when you're finally going to feel "that way" again.
It's now or never, now.
