Before You Exit – Soldier (Official Music Video)


Soldier by the band Before You Exit was written by Connor McDonough, Riley McDonough, and Toby McDonough which are the  members of the said band. You are not alone. That is the shortened version of the meaning of the song. No matter what type of challenges life throws at you always remember that all those challenges will make you a better person. Everything is going to be okay. Now you may experience a lot of difficulties in life but sooner or later you will be able to taste the sweetness of life. Basically, this song is dedicated to everyone who feels that they are not wanted, that their life is useless.

Many people, Especially teens, nowadays experience depression. It maybe caused by stress, high expectations, over thinking, and many other reasons. It is alarming that the depression rate among teens from 15-19 years old are increasing rapidly. That is the reality that this song constructed.

Since the growing rate of depressed teens are growing the band Before You Exit created this song to their fans rather everybody to never let the challenges you face bring you down. This song became the medium for them to convey a short but meaningful message that gave us hope and that there is always a rainbow after the rain.

It is not surprising that this song became my favorite. As cheesy as it sounds I felt like they are really talking to me and they are right beside me. Whenever life drags me down this is one of the songs that gives sunshine to my life. This song reminds me that there are people out there that genuinely loves and cares for me. It is one of those songs that made a huge impact in my life.

The fact that they made the music video even though the song was not a single or an extended play showed that not only my life was changed by this song. They said that they received a lot of heartfelt letters and they ought to make a music video out of it. The music video gave a whole new life to the song. Using only the sense of hearing, the song already touched my heart so when they created the music video, I knew that this song will forever remind me that there is still hope.
