    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.

    Pain, without love Pain,

    I can't get enough Pain, I like it rough 'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all You're sick of feeling numb You're not the only one I'll take you by the hand And I'll show you a world that you can understand This life is filled with hurt When happiness doesn't work...

    White lips, pale face Breathing in

    Never know how much I love you Never know how

    much I care When you put your arms around me I get a fever that's so hard to bear You give me fever When you kiss me Fever when you hold me tight Fever In the morning Fever all through the night Sun lights up the daytime Moon lights up the night I light up when you call my name...

    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...

    What doesn't kill you makes you wish you were

    dead. Got a hole in my soul, growing deeper and deeper. And I can't take one more moment of this silence. The loneliness is haunting me. And the weight of the world's getting harder to hold up. It comes in waves, I close my eyes. Hold my breath and let it bury me. I'm not okay...

    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.

    Sitting here wasted and wounded At this old

    piano Trying hard to capture The moment this morning I don't know 'Cause a bottle of vodka Is still lodged in my head And some blonde gave me nightmares I think that she's still in my bed As I dream about movies They won't make of me when I'm dead With an ironclad fist I wake...

    Why is it that music can make you feel

    so deeply and strongly, make you happy and can make you cry? If we are just machines without souls then what is so magical about music that it makes us feel so many feelings?

    So I just listened to some music with my toes.

    Well, that's how it felt like anyway. I had put on the music on highest iPhone volume, and was in the bath, and I could feel the vibrations of the music in my toes. So I focused on that. Why not, after all sound is all about vibrations, and why should the ears get all that...

    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.

    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...
