    Do This With Me

    I wanna have the same last dream again, The one where I wake up and I'm alive. Just as the four walls close me within, My eyes are opened up with pure sunlight. I'm the first to know, My dearest friends, Even if your hope has burned with time, Anything that's dead shall be re...

    Everyone has a way to escape from things.

    I use music(drawing and writing to but in focusing on music) to escape daily. Music is my life I don't think I can live without It.I think if I didn't listen to music I would be ruined. Music helps me in so many ways and helps me heal my emotional wounds that are still slowly...

    Since I was little I've always turned to

    Whitney Houston and her music as comfort when I was abused and I still do that to this day even though the abuse stopped. I turn to her and her music for strength and to remember love. She has always made me feel better, she still does and she always will. I love her so very...

    Music is the therapy

    that helps me with the bullshit that I go through, I put in my headphones and turn up the volume to full blast and go to my own imaginary world.

    I Just Want You To Know Who I Am...

    And I'd give up forever to touch you Cause I know that you feel me somehow You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be And I don't want to go home right now And all I can taste is this moment And all I can breathe is your life Cause sooner or later it's over I just don't want...

    Cold Water...

    When two people love each other, truly love each other, can God stand between them? Do you think God would stand between them? Is it not enough to just believe? Can there ever be a good foundation to stand on with the strength of love shared and to know the other believes...

    Lauryn Hill- The Passion.

    It's beautiful. I feel she is explaining how people abuse love and take advantage of it. She expresses her wishes of if people would only show love the respect and appreciation it deserves... Things would be different. Lauryn Hill has always been on another level of deep. It...

    Bye Bye Miss American Pie...

    I escape into my world, my freedom, my passion when I listen to music.  It is an alternate sense of self one that is portrayed by someone else.  It helps to know you are not alone and music does that either fictitiously and realistically.

    Music heals the soul.

    There's never a song that you can't relate what you're going through to. Right now I am in love with sound of the violin. The sound is so orgasmic. I swear the man I marry is either 1) going to already know how to play the violin or 2) will be taught how to play it. Heal my...

    Sam smith. He is the greatest.

    .. I just love all of his music. His whole album. I've told you now & latch being my top faves. Was a bit disappointed when I found out his sexual preference, but I'm still in love with his voice.

    In my opinion, the universe is woven from waves

    of light and sound. Music, with it's many forms of patterns and frequencies, contains the power of manipulation in the environment of the individual. When you actually "feel" the music, and lose yourself into the ocean of sound, music eventually becomes your ambience. It is the...

    The Only Companion

    Music is my only companion thru the loneliness, the darkest moment. It's the one thing that makes me sane. I'm amazed of how much it impacts my life. I know by listening music that I'm not alone, knowing that there are people out there who share the same feeling. I listen to...
