The script to life is found in music

I am absolutely, positively and undeniably, passionately addicted to music.  I’m very sure that there are many of you reading this right now, saying: “ME TOO!”

Music is the soundtrack to my life, our lives, just like in a movie where the music changes to enhance a viewer’s experience in a specific scene, the same applies to the music in your life’s moments, making up the soundtrack to your life.  You are depressed, you listen to soppy love songs, you want to party, you listen to music that will get you in the mood…  So many songs speak to you and lyrics connect you to the song, capturing a moment in your life, translating it into a song that describes your emotions.  Music connects you to feelings, both subliminal and conscious, and also connects you to people, reminding you that you are not alone.  Think about it. When you are at a concert, the whole crowd erupts, singing in unison, reciting the lyrics off by heart, bursting with emotion?  Just when you think life is great, you hear a song and out of nowhere, tears appear uninvited, and you start to feel emotions you thought you had already dealt with in your life?  Or you hear a song which make memories from your past flood into your mind, reminding you of someone in your past that you had not thought of in years?

I would like to share 2 amazing songs in my life’s soundtrack with you.  The musicality, the acoustic guitar, the timing of the music synchronised with my heartbeats and the beautiful lyrics being sung with vocals just oozing with personal experience. This and more connects me to my life’s rhythmic emotions.

Volcano, Damien Rice, off the album ‘O’

(the chorus tugs at my heart strings)

What I am to you is not real
What I am to you, you do not need
What I am to you is not what you mean to me
You give me miles and miles of mountains

What I give to you is just what I’m going through
This is nothing new, no, no just another phase of finding
what I really need is what makes me bleed
But like a new disease, Lord, she’s still too young to treat
Volcanoes melt you down
She’s still too young +what I am to you+you do not need+is not real
I kissed your mouth
You do not need me

And then this one too:

Blower’s Daughter, Damien Rice, off the album ‘O’

And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time
And so it is
The shorter story
No love, no glory
No hero in her sky

I can’t take my eyes off of you

And so it is
Just like you said it should be
We’ll both forget the breeze
Most of the time
And so it is
The colder water
The blower’s daughter
The pupil in denial

I can’t take my eyes off of you

Did I say that I loathe you?
Did I say that I want to
Leave it all behind?

I can’t take my mind off of you

‘Til I find somebody new…….

Music speaks to your soul in volumes, every beat in a song is in tune with the beating of your heart, every change in the rhythm bangs the drum of your personal journey through this life.  Music is what feelings sound like.

I would love to hear from you.  Share the lyrics or a song that recites the script of your life with me and my readers.
