    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 wrote a song about death,

    If there's no one who understands you,

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

    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...

    Help! Need some advice.

    I started writing songs to express my feelings.

    To gain confidence I sent a video of me singing my song to a few people I thought I trusted. It turns out that that girl shared it with her friends and they laughed at me. Plenty of times at school they have been singing this song in front of me laughing at me. I have just had...

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

    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...

    I can almost always get into a deep meditative

    state when listening to certain music (usually trance). I remember one time I was sitting at the edge of my bed listening to 'Egyptian Empire Radio' on Pandora, and I started to feel very calm, then felt waves of energy start flowing through me. I loved the feeling so I started...

    I've been listening to music on Pandora these

    past few days when I'm on here. My stories are inspired by whatever that particular song makes me think about or what mood it induces.

    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.

    Listening to Mozart's Requiem

    for what seemed like the hundredth time, I find myself lost in a parallel universe, where I am breathtakingly tortured by my own wretchedness and the beauty of the melody. If I could cry, I'd shed all my tears for the way I feel as the notes and the words fluently and...

    Jamming tunes at an unhealthy volume soothes

    the pain that is wearing on my broken soul. Whether for only a few minutes or a few tracks, tunes help me escape to a place where everything makes sense. It's a place where my mind finds peace and where the stress from the day evaporates with every rhythmic beat :)

    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.

    Music really is one of those things

    that I can say saved me. It saved me from spiraling into my own darkness, and I'm glad that I had one thing, apart from writing, to keep me afloat during my darker days. It helped me feel everything that I had numbed and become disconnected from. It made me feel safe enough to...

    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...
