Let The Music Set You Free
Written by MFL on May 4, 2012
A very wise doll (love you Ashley) once said Let The Music Set You Free ....Music has always been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. My Parents divorced when i was 5 or 6 and each of their houses made my musical history very eclectic......... Mums house was The smiths,Prince,Luther Vandross,Alexander O'Neal,The bangles,Aretha Franklin,Al green,Marvin Gaye .........Dads house was Dire straits,Rod Stewart,Elton John,Julia fordham,Queen,the four tops ,temptations,drifters.
Growing up I went down the usual teen heart throb path of Jason Donovan,new kids on the block,take that,backstreet boys and nsync. That was the music to make me feel like I was a normal teenage girl
BUT I WASN'T ...and this is where the music set me free...around 13 I started to write song lyrics and poetry, it was my escape from everything going on around me and the past that I had hidden so deep in my mind, music helped me escape from that. Music began to be my healer,my confident,my escape,my only true friend.
And still today i find solace in music...no matter what emotion I have music is there to accompany me, to guide me through any ups or downs.
Some of my favourite lyrics are:
"Mother, mother, there’s too many of you crying Brother, brother, brother, there’s far too many of you dying……
"live your life without regret, don't be someone who they'll forget"
"its not right but it's ok , I'm gonna make it anyway"
"Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars, seeing is deceiving dreaming is believing..it's ok not to be ok"
"free your mind and the rest will follow, be colourblind,don't be so shallow"
"i bruise easily, so be careful when you handle me"
"don't let yourself go, cos everybody cries,everybody hurts..sometimes"
"Is it over yet?Can I open my eyes?Is this as hard as it gets?Is this what it feels like to really cry?"
"everyone falls in love love sometimes, sometimes we'll laugh and some times we'll cry, for every win someone must fail, and tehre comes a point when , when we exhale"
"Just one of them days ,that a girl goes through,when im angry inside,dont wanna take it out on you,just one of them days, dont take it personal"
"sitting in the dock of the bay watching the tide roll away,i'm just sittin on the dock of the bay wasting time"
