Speed of light/Time travel?

I know people like to say if you get to the speed of light then time slows down... But why? I don't get it. I can only picture light and time as two completely different things that don't rely on each other. To me, the speed of light is like the speed of sound and just because you go faster than sound when say, a gun goes off, doesn't mean the bullet never left. Just because you go faster than light wouldn't mean that something never happened, it just appears like it did.... I just... Don't get it. Explanations please? Scientific words and equations are welcomed, as long as you go into detail. The more the merrier.
