    Music Takes Me to Another Place

    Music saves my life a lot of times because it takes me away to another place away from the rest of the world.  Not only that, but I feel like I can relate to a lot of what I listen to in both good and sometimes not so good ways.  It's weird, it's like my music is...

    Music Is My Soul...my Heart Beat.......

    Music is my soul. I love to listen to all sorts of music to take me away, to cheer me up, or to fit what ever mood I am in. When I feel like being hyper and bouncing, I love to listen to the dance mixes, and get things moving, or like if I am partying it up with friends to get...

    Music Is Me, I Am Music

    Music is like... my soul speaking out. The rhythm goes through me and when it comes out, it is full of my secrets, fears, hopes and loves. Music speaks like no other can, it lifts up words in its soft arms and does not speak of them unless you want them too. Music is the life of...

    It Keeps Me Sane Or So I Think Lol

    Music allows me to connect to something.

    It feels so real. The melody, harmonies, rhythm of the song. It's soothing. It calms me down. Helps me when I'm down. Of course, there are many a time where the lyrics and melody feels wrong. The lyrics are empty and meaningless, and the melody only a bar or two repeated over...
