Amazing Alex: Music

"People haven't always been there for me, but music has."
-Taylor Swift

Music has a way of translating complicated emotions into simple ones, if that makes any sense. I've been through a few relationships and some friendships that have such complex stories that are hard to translate. Music can dive into it and fish out those emotions and make me realize the right decisions and what to do next in an undefinable state.

I always find myself turning to music when I'm in need of inspiration. Taylor Swift, my idol, has taught me so much just through lyrics in her songs. People are going to be "mean" and they're going to "throw rocks at things that shine."

I can easily listen to her one of her songs and translate her story to fit my situation. Example, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" relates to this guy and myself who we're walking on a tight rope and we just weren't there to save each other. "I Knew You Were Trouble" relates to a guy that I shared a summer with. I knew he was a player... and I knew that he had a ton of other girls waiting and that he was playing them... I ignored everything and fell into his traitorous trap.

Taylor Swift got me through those affairs and helped me see the bright side of the situation. Now I know.

I used to get bullied a lot, as a matter of fact I still do. I'm called ugly, a slut, a b*tch, etc. I'm not gonna say I disagree with some of those things, but when it's said, it leaves invisible bruises on your skin that will never fade away.

As for other kinds of music, I listen to other songs by other artists. My favorite song lately has been "Marilyn Monroe" by Nicki Minaj. The song is so easy to relate to. It has words that are engraved on my heart, and they'll be scars there until the day I die.

Music is something that can get you through anything and everything is a matter of time. As for listening aspect it's easy to relate... if you write lyrics... they're even more definable and ratifying. 

I love writing lyrics. I can't really get a background tune or whatever, but the lyrics are the part that mean the most, at least in my eyes.

This song. I love it. I can't even describe how much I love it. it's easy to relate to, it's upbeat, it's amazing!

It makes me think of my current boyfriend... except instead of 17, it's 15.

I was young and naive, a blue eyed girl about 15.
He was beautiful and playing the drums- living his dream.

Clasped on to the night, when everything felt so right.
A moonlit walk, around 10 o'clock.

You're hand in mine, I never felt so fine.
Everything was perfect.

I'm currently working on a song. I absolutely love the whole idea of a fast paced relationship with it's crazy part... and then the soft spoken moments where you flashback to and you wish they could last forever.

My heart beat out of my chest, I love that feeling-
it was the best.

The stars danced and I had something to lose,
I hope I never lost it.

Something like that. I'm still working on it.

Writing music is one of my favorite stress relievers and just emotional expresser ever. 

Thanks for reading. Xoxo,
