For 3 to 4 minutes you are no longer. Someone else out there understands how you feel. They put it into all the words you could never begin to understand.
It forever makes a place in our heart. From now on whenever we hear that song, we go back to that time in our lives. To those feelings.
When people ask me why I don't really listen to new music- or music I don't know by heart-it's because I don't want to hear music. I want to feel music with every single part of my body and soul. I want the singers voice to be rich and filled with all the things I am feeling.
I want want a song that is just fun to listen too.Though I have any of those that I love.
What I am always looking for is the music that is art.
That simple three letter word. Is my goal in life. The thing I will spend forever looking for and trying to create.
So when I hear a song, I want it to move me. I want something that finds my inner most feelings - the ones I didn't even know I was feeling and bring me back to life.
There is that moment when you are laying in bed at night head phones in and just for 3 minutes the world stops. All there is the song and you. All that you are. For this moment you are understood. You are not alone.
And isn't that what we spend our whole lives looking for? Aren't those the moments that make it all worth while?
That feeling of being accepted as we are. No judgement. No changes needed to be made.
In those moments we accept ourselves as we are. All those things that we hated when the song started, and that we will hate as soon as it ends go away. But while that song - my song, our song is going we love that part of us those feelings.
To me that is good music. That is art.
