    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.

    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.

    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 :)
