    the heart of me So deep in my heart that you're really a part of me I've got you under my skin I've tried so not to give in I said to myself this affair won't go so well But why should I try to resist when baby I know more than well I've got you under my skin I've got you...

    While getting for work,

    I have to listen to music(Gospel) because it helps me to get through the day. It feels so good when I listen to Gospel music.

    Muddy Waters is the only thing I've been

    listening to lately. His music just tickles my soul the right way.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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?

    I'm almost always the friend

    that is strong for everyone else. Everyone comes to me with their issues, and if I can help them through it, I do, if not I support them while they help themselves. Whenever I'm hurting or need help, those same people will ignore me, or tell me to suck it up. Music is that one...

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

    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.

    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...

    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...
