Life in Lyrics

Life in Lyrics

Your eyes, they shine so bright
I wanna save that light
I can’t escape this now
Unless you show me how

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide ~ Demons // Imagine Dragons

I live my life by songs. Which is ironic, because as I joked with one of my friends “I have no professional training.”

Seriously, I sound like a bird croaking for life. It isn’t that I am tone deaf, I just don’t have that musical quality that makes a singer a singer. You know Adele? Carrie Underwood? Lady Gaga? They have that IT voice factor.

I do not. See the bird croaking for life reference if you need convincing.

I don’t even like to sing around people. Unless I am channeling my inner hilarity factor where my idiocy is just hiding the fact my voice is sadly below average.

It would be the one percent of average.

Despite the fact my dream of being a music superstar – hair flipping in the fan like Be and Carrie – will never be realized except through characters in books where they also miraculously find height as well as multiple Grammy awards, music is still important to me.

I hear a song on the radio and it will speak to me. When I write, I need to listen to music. It sets the tones of the chapter. My playlists will determine my workouts. One of the exciting moments of yoga teacher training was when I began to create playlists for my classes.

Yes I am a nerd to the extreme. A music nerd that is.

When I worked in the restaurant business, I use to shock people when they would come in and I would be listening to rap music as I cleaned up. My musical tastes are as varied as my Gemini personality.

Each song shares a part of my life. It tells a lyrical story. The tempos matching my moods. The words touching my soul, channeling who I am. It is the melody of life. It helps me get through the moments.

I may not have “Professional training” but damn am I great at hitting the play button on my iPod.

What is a song that is an anthem for your life?

I am a country girl living on the Upper East Side of the concrete jungle. My friends call me a modern day Renaissance woman. I have dabbled in a little bit of everything, from being a yoga instructor to holistic chef, to skating coach, to glorified nanny, to student. I am a self admitted coffee junkie. A wannabe mermaid. A wanderluster who dreams of other countries. A fashionista who really does need a bigger bank account. But most important of all, I dream of living in a bungalow by the ocean and being a published writer (in style of course) sipping coffee in the morning and a martini in the evening. I love to meet my readers, so feel free to comment or email me. Happy reading!
