    Music doesn't always need to be about the

    lyrics. Mastery of instruments and originality is so beautiful to me!

    I for some unknown reason I sing When I am

    stressed, I remember far back into childhood's hour how I'd spend my days outside playing and exploring nature, all the while singing to all my little creature friends.A song I enjoy singing too, lol... even though I am probably tone deaf.

    Dear God I forgot how therapeutic this could be.

    Turned on some acoustic breaking Benjamin and sang at the top of my lungs along with him. Riding this high of true elation that can only be achieved from moments like this. So thankful, so incredibly thankful for the music in my life, the talent for singing that I have and the...

    Finding old music you used to love is like

    getting back in touch with an old friend. I love how when you find that one song, you instantly go back to that same feeling you used to have, or in that same mindset you were in when you heard it in the first place.

    I can honestly say music is a really big part

    of my life, but then again I find it hard if it's not the same for everyone. I spend a good percentage of my days listening to music, whether I'm on my way to work, or other places. Music calms me down and at the same time it helps me express myself. I love to write with music...

    Music is nourishment

    for the soul. A song with just the right lyrics can motivate, the right melody can resonate with one's inner power, and the right rhythm can cause one's inner energy to pulsate again to the beat. There are times when I am depressed that I will sing a motivational song pouring...

    Guitars

    If you were to take note of the callouses on my left hand, you could probably track my moods fairly well. When I have things on my mind - good, bad or ambiguous...my fingers start itching for my guitar.Through the years, I have expressed my emotion through various art forms, but...

    I've found that even in my worst moments there

    is a song, a lyric, a melody that understands me and at that moment I don't feel quite as alone. Life isn't always easy but if I didn't have music I don't know where I'd be today.

    James Blunt - You're Beautiful You're

    beautiful. You're beautiful. You're beautiful, it's true. I saw your face in a crowded place, And I don't know what to do, 'Cause I'll never be with you.

    Most certainly ... 💯So far from home

    overseas in Japan so I gotta have a way to feel like I'm back in NYC/Jersey. What's better than looking up some great albums that got me through my adolescents? Sticking close to my guy Nas tonight - New York state of mind 🗽

    Ugh I hate when you really need a certain feel

    from music, a certain vibe or feeling and you just can't find the right song.

    Don't you love the feeling

    when you listen to a song for the first time and you just instantly fall in love with it.

    If there's no one who understands you,

    there's always one song, one artist that does.

    Sometimes I feel that

    when I put my headphones and listen to the music I feel lighter and that all my insecurities and stress just wash away.

    I experience anxiety very often.

    Sometimes it keeps me from coming out of my room or being able to get out of a car if I see that the store or mall is busy. I very much dislike that this happens but it is normal for some people with Aspergers. But I can be calmed by certain opera music like the arias...

    I make music for me I make music

    as an outlet for control I make music to feel I make music to abandon this place, this difficult place inside of myself, and be a different element. Out of my element. Think about it, think about the music. No one will judge you there. No one will call you out on your madness...
