"Someday everything will make perfect sense. So, for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears, and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason." - Art Thomas


Music so raw that it makes you shiver

It cuts you up, sliver by sliver

When you cry, the teardrops are big

The deeper you listen, the deeper you dig

 

Sometimes, it only takes the beginning of a song

To make you feel like everything that is wrong

Can suddenly, amazingly be right

And the light in your eyes seems more bright

 

Other times, the music hits too close to home

A personal experience we’d rather not again roam

Tears slip from our eyes without warning

We remember the way we had been mourning

 

But hearing those couple of amusingly silly songs

That playlist that only us ding-dongs

Could possibly listen to on repeat for hours

Makes us wonder of music’s powers

 

The melodies can sadden or soothe

It can wrinkle, or it can smooth

Music can be cursed or blessed

It can make you feel happy or depressed

 

Music so raw that it makes you shiver

It cuts you up, sliver by sliver

When you cry, the teardrops are big

The deeper you listen, the deeper you dig
