If you ever felt the need to leave your old past life and "drive a million miles" away to start a new life, trying to find this paradise where you are not held down by people that want to change the way you are, "Reasons," by Michael Rice X Amberlind is the perfect song for you. The artist emotionally connects with the listener through their powerful and amazing vocals and electronic accompaniment.



"Reasons," by Michael Rice X Amberlind is a song that tells a very personal story where the artist is in an environment where they do not feel comfortable being themselves. The artist's vocals emotionally connects with the listener expressing to them that if you are in the same boat as me, and you are trapped, no matter where you go, to find paradise, you are reminded of all the littles in your past relationship, life or environment that traps you in a box and you keep hitting your head on the top, falling back down to the ground, no matter how much you try to grow. The electronic music definitely makes this song more enjoyable to listen for this catchy rhythmic passages and the instrumental section with some electric woodwind.
