    When things go wrong

    and I feel like I have no one, I go to music it helps me feel better and helps me relax. It makes me feel that even for that short amount of time all my problems can just disappear and I can pretend that everything in the world is fine. It helps me escape from reality and eases...

    I always listen to music

    when I'm upset I just get lost in the music and imagine a dance studio and by the end I'm happy as hell :)

    Headphones= Sanity

    Meg Myers is getting me through this.

    (currently 'Poison') It's weird to be happy and upset at the same time. When you have an inner battle raging inside it's like having multiple personalities. I won't vent to anyone I know though. There'd be no taking back the words that would pass through my lips. I don't...

    It's not particularly based on

    when I'm upset (although on most occasions it is) but usually music is my secret escape or my get away so to speak. Some songs even remind me of a certain moment or time during my life; making me who I am today. Like when my I went water skiing with my friends and on the way...

    Nothing- The script Honestly,

    it sucks when people don't understand you or are trying to see things from your perspective. I know I'm making the right decision for once but nobody seems to respect it or support it, and it makes me feel like ****. All I want to do is fall sleep and never ever wake up.

    Music didn't save my life

    but I believe it has the power to. The key is really listening to the lyrics. And to not listen to Iggy Azalea, unless you don't care about your brain cells.

    Blocking the world out.

    Letting the music in. Drowning in the thoughts that flow with the push of the lyrics.

    Without my headphones on I can hear the silence

    ring. the silence that should be filled with greetings or loving remarks to fill the space that is moving in and crushing me. Without music I can barely breathe. Sometimes I can hear the voice of the Korean tv shows my mom invests her emotion into instead of her life. because...

    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...

    When i'm upset, when i'm happy,

    when i'm tired, when i'm awake. There is a style of music and song for every situation. The world would be a boring place without music
