It Speaks To Me And I Listen.
What is music to me?
It's a beautiful art filled with amazing lyrics, beats and rhythms that would sweep you off your feet. The beauty of music itself cannot be explained. It's as if the lyrics speak to me in particular and just hits home for some reason. I use music most times to get through my day in any difficulties I'm having. Different occasions and different music and lyrics to vibe to.
On days where I'll come across a really cute guy on the street or maybe at the shopping complex, I'll come home and make sure to listen to thousands of love songs and I feel like the person singing really gets me at that very moment. I'll listen to those love songs, smiling like an idiot.
"Who's making you prance around listening to all these love lyrics" my sisters would question, but I'll only smile more with no explanation.
I'll see that maybe the guy isn't interested in me or is in a relationship and I have music to fall back to. I'll lay on my bed listening to heartbreak songs and it's funny though because at that moment, I feel like love is not for me but then the next minute I see another cute guy, I'm back to square one.
When I have hectic days at school and I come back home, I always listen to motivational songs because on those days, I feel like I should just quit. Schooling is so stressful and the expectations people like your parents and teachers have for you just makes you want to go insane sometimes but music helps me keep calm on those days. I feel more myself after listening to some songs and then I bounce back on my road to success.
Going to a party and having a vibe to different types of music is just the best. You'll dance, have fun, and just be filled with joy. Music brings that vibe really. Even in church when the choir would be singing, I find myself dancing even if I didn't want to because the music is just so interesting that you have no choice other than to dance.
Sometimes, while having bad cramps, music helps to soothe the pains away. I'll always lay on my bed listening to songs that will make me cry. Crying to those songs really soothes the pain away.
Even when reading in groups with my friends, we prefer being in our own little world listening to music with headsets and reading our book alongside. Most people might see it as a distraction but it actually helps me understand more. When listening to good music, you just forget worries and feel better immediately.
Listening to good music, for me, eases my mood and eases pain which I may have. It reduces the stress or heavy burden I have to carry as a person. I've always loved music and it's like my number one friend that won't stray from me. When I need something to laugh at, smile at, or cry to, I'll listen to music and it's just the best.
Music has indeed helped you a lot. The aspect I got attracted to was where you talked about a cute guy on the street and then you go back home to console yourself with music. Oooh.
I have a friend that do say… Music is life’ and music is everything to him.
Indeed music is like everything! Thanks so much for the comment!
Oh, so you see a guy on the street and at home listen to music and daydream? That's cool, why not? :D
Music has some strange power. I am a musician and well, I can't really explain why it happens, why music has so much influence on us, on our mood, thoughts, feelings etc. There are things that can't be explained completely, like music, though we can feel their importance. 🎶
Exactly! Music speaks a lot about our moods and have great influence on us. Thanks so much for the comment!

I have found this to be true for me as well, @tozill. And sometimes music opens up the blocked water works, and lets me cry about a loss or an injustice. It can be very therapeutic!
Indeed it is very therapeutic. Thanks so much for the comment!

This is so true, and that's the beauty about music. Thanks so much for the comment!
Music speaks to the soul ..each song has a message and each time you feel down...music can bring you up and sometimes the music just goes with your excitement...there's no way we can do without music and you've outlined how much music is to you... tahnks for sharing this beautiful piece
I'm happy sharing this piece with everyone here. Thanks for the comment!
Music moves all things and can create a new heart. Music with what I can see in you has helped you a lot. One way or the other we have grown deep in music.
In some way, music surely helps us. As for me, listening calms me when I felt so stress in my daily activities.
Ahh yes, I feel you on this. I've got so many songs that got me through my school life that I can't even explain!
Tell me about it! I still put my headphones on before I start studying or am doing my assignments or reports. Music makes me focus. I would be so lost without it!
Great writing! Hope you have a good day.
I'm glad to see someone that totally relates....thanks so much for the comment!
This is the part that really caught my attention. I've never heard about this before, but then that's the beauty of reading.
Music is beautiful and has its own ways of meeting us at the points where we need them the most.
Weird right? I know. Buh as weird as it is.....it truly helps
It's good to know..
How nice your writing, I liked it very much and I share what you say there. It was funny how you described your relationship between music and attraction to boys, but that's how it is. Music is food for the soul.
