    Not Music. Jjust How

    You talk like. You need me. And act like you understood. But I've got no meaning. Yeah I am, just another face. And if I am so wrong. I'm sorry! It's just the way I feel. 'Cause when you are with him. You're so on that I just wish I didn't care but I do. I wish I could just never...

    I'm Scared.

    I cut a few days ago. Nothing serious, mostly scratches the stopped bleeding quick enough to not really need to cover them. It's in a place that is hidden, and can't be seen unless I wear a t-shirt. I also don't like to lie. It caused to many problems for me in the past and now...

    How Im Feeling

    As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I wear my crown of thorns and pull the knife out my chest. I keep searching for something that I never seem to find. But maybe I won’t, because I left it all behind. Now I’m stuck with this, and that’ll never change...

    It Works Well

    Music has a way of making things better. I have always thought that, I just never always believed it fully.

    In need to let it all out before I can let it go

    ..But it's not that I keep my emotions locked up inside. I pick a sad song on one of my albums from whatever artist, that's either 'Cry baby' from Janis Joplin, 'Ruled by Secrecy' from Muse, 'Dream On' or 'Seasons Of Wither' from Aerosmith, 'The Scientist' from Coldplay or...

    I Just Listen To It

    I just listen to songs I love in a moment when I was upset, in love, excited and so forth. When I was heartbroken, I listen to the songs with lyrics I can relate to.

    Listening to music, I find, is the simplist way to deal with my emotions. I connect to it, I relate to it, and it comforts me.

    I Am So Emotional

    I love listening to new age music, soft instrumentals that will help relax my mind. I am so emotional and it helps when I listen to this kind of music, it's very comforting.

    Sometimes Yes Sometimes No

    It can help but its not always what helps. I listen to music all the time, though my ipod has pretty much died on me, and normally blaring it as loud as it can go makes me calm down. At least for the most part it does.

    It Helps Everyday

    I don't know if there are words to describe the huge role that music has played in my life, but I'll try. Music is the one constant in my life that has always been here. No matter how old a song is, I can always listen to a song I like and have a special connection to it. I tend...

    When I Get Angry Or Depressed....

    when i get angry or depressed i listen to metal. but not just any metal, christian metal. it really helps calm me down for some reason, especially three bands : demon hunter, disciple, and chevelle. both sound so different, but they give me the same result.
