Shatter Me - Lindsey Stirling ft. Lzzy Hale


The Experience: I'm frozen by the fear in me... I'm scared of changing... Lindsey Stirling longs for a better life in this power ballad. But that means change. And change is scary...


Music video: Many of Lindsey Stirling's videos are visual allegories for her music, and Shatter Me is no exception. Lindsey is a miniature violinist wakes up and plays over and over again in her music box
. She dreams of more - of something bigger than her tiny crystal world. But it's dark outside. Bats - or what she thinks are bats - cruise the darkness. And when she finally decides to break the glass, she discovers that she will shatter with it. No glass, no security... and maybe a very long fall in the dark. Meanwhile, the person who turned her on - Lzzy Hale - decides to stop the clockwork. Is Lindsey racing against the clock to escape before she dies? Or does Lzzy mean well? Your call. What matters is that Lindsey breaks the glass, and comes out of her shattered self and world in one piece, on a beautiful sunswept hilltop.

The Meaning of Shatter Me: Lindsey Stirling dives deep into the problem of happiness. Few of us are completely satisfied with our life. We want more. Our crystal ball is too small for our dreams. But changing things - shattering the crystal ball - means changing us and who we are - shattering me. The unknown is scary. You have to believe that what will emerge is a better you and a better life. Change can only happen when your hopes are stronger than your fears.

Ask yourself: Is change worth the effort? Worth the risk? Are you willing to go all in?


LYRICS:

I pirouette in the dark
I see the stars through me
Tired mechanical heart
Beats til the song disappears

Somebody shine a light
I'm frozen by the fear in me
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me

So cut me from the line
Dizzy, spinning endlessly
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me!

Shatter me
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me!

If only the clockwork could speak
I wouldn't be so alone
We burn every magnet and spring
And spiral into the unknown

Somebody shine a light
I'm frozen by the fear in me
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me

So cut me from the line
Dizzy, spinning endlessly
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me!

Shatter me
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me!

If I break the glass, then I'll have to fly
There's no one to catch me if I take a dive
I'm scared of changing, the days stay the same
The world is spinning but only in game

If I break the glass, then I'll have to fly
There's no one to catch me if I take a dive
I'm scared of changing, the days stay the same
The world is spinning but only in game

Hold me, hold me, hold me...

Somebody shine a light
I'm frozen by the fear in me
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me

So cut me from the line
Dizzy, spinning endlessly
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me!

Shatter me
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me!
