T.E.R's.Story >>>

Hanson saved me. I don't want to sound like a dork saying this, but they did. They pulled me out of a very depressing time in my life, that I wish to forget. I have been a Hanson fan since 1997, but I lost touch with their music in about 1999, that's when I fell into my depressing stage of my life. I didn't want to go on living, I couldn't take it any more, life was just too hard. So I decided to give away some of my things to my friends since I wasn't going to need them any more. I came across Hanson's "Middle of Nowhere" CD, so I put it in just for fun and hit random play. Strangely enough, all of the songs that played first, referred to my life at the moment. I listened to the lyrics, and started to cry. It felt as if they knew what I was going through, and I wasn't alone. As "Weird" was playing, I started to look through the "Middle of Nowhere" CD booklet, and found this AMAZING picture of Taylor, and remembered what a dedicated fan I used to be, and why I loved Hanson so much. The lyrics in ALL of their songs came from their hearts, like they know what people were going through. It touched me deeply to hear words come out of their mouths and mean every word they say and say it wit so much passion and feeling. From then on, I wanted to live, I felt like I wasn't the only one going through what I was going through. Hanson probably knows this, but all of their songs have so much meaning to them, and it changes peoples lives, like mine. I was so thankful to come across that CD that day. If I hadn't, I wouldn't have seen my cousins and sister grow up to be the beautiful and loving people they are today, I wouldn't have met all of my wonderful and caring friends, I wouldn't be with my boyfriend of 3 months, I wouldn't have seen my family grow and flourish with love throughout the past year, and I wouldn't have seen Hanson in concert August 10, 2000. I was truly blessed to have a band write lyrics from their hearts and then sing them and mean every word they say, and sing it with their all. And just to see those 3 angels walk out on stage and sing was amazing. Thank you Hanson, you have changed the life of one person, imagine what you could do for everyone else.
