DAY 7 - One More Light

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone's time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We're quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do
- One More Light, Linkin Park

One More Light is a seminal song about suicide loss. Written by Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, its raw and emotional lyrics are an homage to Bennington's best friend, Chris Cornell, who died by suicide on May 18, 2017.

The video was produced posthumously, as Bennington himself died by suicide on July 20, 2017. 

Chester Bennington died on what would have been Chris Cornell's 53rd birthday. 

I am happy to share the song again. It is a beautiful statement of how important our lost loves are to us.
