    I listen to music a lot.

    It makes me forget about everything and relax. If music doesn't work, I just look at cute pictures and watch funny videos.

    Listen To Music

    I listen to music all the time, especially when i can't sleep. I just turn on my Mp3 player and lay on my bed and let the music lure me to sleep. My Mp3 player always running out of battery. :( Hate it when this happened.

    Music has changed me

    so much!! If I didn't have music in my life I think my life would just be a big mess.. I've always loved this saying: Drop the razors Dry your eyes Don't say "goodbye" And learn to fly, we'll guide you

    Music is like my escape from all the bullshit

    in life. It helps you realize someone out there does understand you and has hope. Music is like my therapy. It's there when no one else is. 💜

    I've got no real friends.

    They all abandoned me. I had no one else to turn to, so I turned to the music. Music saved my life. That band that saved me was My Chemical Romance. Now I know that some people will just say things like, "Oh, that's such an emo band. Why do you listen to emo **** music like that...

    Relief Of The Pressure

    When I get very angry, sad or anxious....I find that the right music can manage to calm me down and bring me back to center.  I seem to suffer from a mental clog when I get affected enough by a situation.  If I sit and listen to music (that is if I can find a chance to...

    Whenever my parents are fighting with me

    or each other or anyone I just simply put my headphones in and ignore them. They adventually go away and stop fighting. Music also helps me stay incontrol when I feel down and out. It helps me realize stuff. I just love music.

    Angry Music

    You can telly mood by the music that gets played. Usually I play classics or golden oldies, but if the heavy metal goes on- or even worse, the Wagner - just quietly leave me alone till I get over it.
