    Thinking tonight is the perfect night to drown

    myself in music. It's amazing how I let the smallest things upset me.

    I'm upset that I lost the little rubber part at

    the end of one of my ear buds. I'm upset right now, which mean I want to listen to music and block out the noise around me. I'm actually getting kinda anxious that I'm not receiving the therapy usually gives me

    He said, "One day you'll leave this world

    behind So live a life you will remember." My father told me when I was just a child These are the nights that never die My father told me Don't forsake this life of yours It's yours to live, and you'll open doors.

    Blocking the world out.

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

    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
