    I'm taking quotes from songs

    and piecing them together, making my feelings appear on paper. I'm going to give it to my boyfriend on the last day of school. I hope he appreciates the time this is taking me. I don't know how to express myself except in music :( music moves me more than my friends do.

    Paint yourself a picture,

    something perfectly obscure To hide away the messes behind your manicure And all of my obsessing to find the perfect words Sick of second guessing, I didn't mean to make you hurt Didn't mean to make you hurt, hurt hurt What do you say when your heart's not in it, your heart's...

    Shivers

    The subject says it all.. I get shivers when I listen to a song that speaks to me. Mostly orchestral music does this to me. And I'm not talking about just classical music. Film scores or just any other composition can make my cheeks hot. Sometimes I'll listen to a really good...

    Away

    I put the headphones on and go to youtube. I can listen for hours to a variety of music. The more I listen, the further I am taken away from the grind of the day. For me, to get lost in the music, the words and the emotion is where I can find my inner peace.

    Music is part of me. It is my spirit. It is my mood. It is empowering. .I absorb - It reaches out- It takes.A sensuous envelope of raw untamed ecstasy. Our soul is as one. It can carry me higher than any drug. It will play constantly till it is a part of me and done, an...
