That I know what I am fighting for
And for this, I'd go to war
Weapon in mind is my mind's skin
Swaddled around the only body part
That should matter: My heart.
- lyrics from I Always Liked That by Maria Mena

Maria Mena is an amazing storyteller, and she chooses to share these stories in song. I can't tell you what I like more, her lyrics and her voice: emotional, evocative, heartbreaking, haunting, honest, and true. I own all of her albums. If you asked me to list my top five favorite Maria Mena songs, it would be difficult, as I love so many of her songs. (But feel free to ask, because I'm always happy to share the love!) The song I've highlighted today, I Always Liked That, comes from her new album, Weapon in Mind, which will be released later this month. I can't wait!
