"When I watched you walk away,
I knew I'd gone too far.
I'm on my knees to plead for mercy.
Don't want to live and hurt alone. "
The first verse of the song 'Hear Me' by the Tedeschi Trucks Band.

MY MUSIC MEMORY
My favorite memory that involves music is where I would lay on the backseat of my parents car as a kid. We'd drive home for 2 hours after a long family day every month.
It was usually after 10pm, so it was dark outside. And as my father would put on the Graceland album by Paul Simon (till this day my favorite album), I'd watch the highway lights rush by.
Just the dark blue sky, the lights and Paul Simon singing about the Mississippi Delta.

SLOW DANCING IN
A BURNING ROOM...
A fantastic song by John Mayer. Look it up if you haven't heard it yet. (worth it)
As the title suggests, it's about a couple who once loved each other, but now have no other option but to break up.
While the guitars cry during this song, memories start to surface again for me. What memories does this song bring you?
Create your own short song about it and tag your letter "music" and "love.
FEEL GOOD SONG.
When you have a song that makes you instantly feel better, life will become a little bit easier right away.
When I have trouble getting out of bed or I don't feel like cleaning the house, I'll just put up that special feel good song and I'll instantly feel more motivated.
For me that song is "Have a nice day" by Stereophonics.
What is your favorite feel good song? And how does it help you?

When I look up,
I can't help but wonder.
If we're both looking,
At that same bright star.
When I look up,
I can't help but wonder,
If it is me,
You're thinking of.
When I look up,
The stars remind me,
Of our love,
That will never be.
