    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...

    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.
