A song can make you or break you. I’m beginning to wonder if a song made me.
One of the easiest ways to break the ice is to share a song. Follow different tastes in music, and try to learn what strikes the soul like thunder in power. Say hello. Song lyrics can explain what even the most put-together person can’t say. Maybe they can tell the world your story without you having to say a word.
Poet words with music. They reach out to catch you as you fall off the brink. Drowning isn’t an option, the notes and chords keep you afloat. So much can be seen between the lines of a song. Maybe you can see the source of your misery. Or maybe you’ve fallen in love, and the only way to express it is through the words others have given you to work with. Headphones in, sounds to comfort, the world just slips away.
