Music moves me. Not just physically. Music moves me—my emotional state, my thoughts, my feelings.
The lyrics, beat, melody, everything conveys a message—layered and intricately woven. How music can course through my body and into my soul amazes me.
Interestingly enough, though, the majority of my life I never truly identified with a song. Never listened and thought to myself, “This is exactly my life, my story.” I felt the emotion of the artist—to an extent. But it wasn’t my song.
Only within the last few years did I first experience complete music identification, transitioned by life into complete connection with a song. Where the words and notes flow out as if from some place deep within me, communicating a message that only music can.
Musicians and lyricists (good ones, that is) truly have a gift. What songs speak to you?
