Music is a gateway to my soul.
One of my first loves before writing was music. I’ve always had a music player from a cassette player, to a CD player, to MP3, to now an iPod, I always carry music everywhere I go.
I love searching for new songs and finding songs that just fit the beat of my heart and life. Currently, I purchased the new Demi Lovato album, DEMI, and loved every song on there. My favorite would be Two Pieces. The song has beautiful rhythm, lyrics, and vocals.
Favorite lyrics of this song:
We’re only lost children trying to find a friend,
Trying to find our way back home.
We don’t know where to go so I’ll just get lost again…
These dark clouds over me,
Rain down and roll away.
In hindsight, I noticed that all my favorite songs have something about Pieces in them. I love, LOVE, Broken Pieces by Apocalyptica ft. Lacey Strum. Absolutely in love with this song, I’m a suck for violins mixed with heavy guitars. I think the lyrics are what drew me closer to it.
Too late this is not the answer, I need to pack in.
I can’t pull your heart together with just my voice all alone.
If you would salvage some part of you that once knew love,
But I’m losing this and I’m losing you…
It’s too late, now to stop the process,
This was your choice, you let it in.
This double life you lead is eating you up from within.
I could quote the whole song because I hear those lyrics, hard. If that makes any sense.
Another song where I could quote the whole song is Pieces by Icon For Hire.
You’re so tired,
Trying to rewind the mess you’ve made of your own mind,
But the pieces won’t pick up themselves, you know.
You can fight just like you’ve been taught,
But it won’t undo the life you’ve got
Because the pieces won’t pick up themselves, you know.
You say you try your after something better,
It doesn’t show,
You’re still not put together.
I’m sure there’s some deep psychological answer as to why at this point in my life, these songs resonate loudest within me. And why Pieces are in all of them. I don’t know but I thought you’d enjoy the songs that are my light in the morning.
I love new music, what are you listening to?
