Music Lyrics…

I love listening to the Lyrics of my favorite artists. Lyrics make us question our lives, relive a moment, inspire and lift us up, allow us to lose our inhibitions or simply make us smile.  Here are a few that do just that for me.  You’ll see why.

This Time…Jonathon Rhys Meyers (August Rush)

I’ve been sitting watching life pass from the sidelines
Been waiting for a dream to seep in through my blinds
I wondered what might happen if I left this all behind
Would the wind be at my back ? Could I get you off my mind
This time

(You Want to) Make a Memory…Jon Bon Jovi

Hello again, it’s you and me
Kinda always like it used to be
Sippin’ wine, killing time
Trying to solve life’s mysteries

How’s your life, it’s been awhile?
God it’s good to see you smile
I see you reaching for your keys
Looking for a reason not to leave

If you don’t know if you should stay
If you don’t say what’s on your mind
Baby just breathe
there’s nowhere else tonight we should be

You wanna make a memory?

And my all time favourite!

Better When Were Together…Jack Johnson

There’s no combination of words
I could put on the back of a postcard
No song that I could sing
But I can try for your heart,
our dreams, and they are made out of real things
like a shoebox of photographs
with sepia-toned loving
Love is the answer
at least for most of the questions in my heart,
Why are we here? And where do we go?
And how come it’s so hard?
It’s not always easy and
sometimes life can be deceiving
I’ll tell you one thing, it’s always better when we’re together




Acoustic guitar

Music, what would we do without it?  Tara Cronica has a category Tara’s Talent.  I have been making it a part of my social calendar to go and check out some local bands.

I love spending time listening to music.  I can’t imagine my life without it.  I envy the creative souls who make it.  In my twenties I hung out with  friends who loved to get together and jam.  I could sit and listen to them for hours.

Music inspires me to write, meditate and gives me the energy to run.  Music sets the mood for everything, imagine a movie without a score.  One of my favorite movies about music is ‘August Rush’.

My favorite instrument is acoustic guitar.  I think music can enriches your life in so many ways.  Having had two children, I noticed how both responded to music at such an early age.  It makes one wonder how the vibrational energy of the music can have such an emotional impact on us.

Going to concerts is an experience for sure, but I like the more intimate show myself.  Late last year Jacquie and I went to see Jessica Beach when she was promoting ‘For Your Protection‘.  Loved her!   And yes, bought the CD.

More recently I saw a band called DNA 6 who are funk and rap mixed, they too were worth the night out for.  Swank is next on my list of bands to see!

Which came first the emotion or the song?
