    I Dont Love You

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    Mixed Emotions

    Button your lip baby Button your coat Lets go out dancing Go for the throat Lets bury the hatchet Wipe out the past Make love together Stay on the path Youre not the only one With mixed emotions Youre not the only ship Adrift on this ocean

    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.

    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...
