Random Playlist Gem! Sometimes....

I love music. I love what it does to me; the emotions it ignites, the memories it calls back or the memories it creates when a moment would otherwise be forgotten. I love how it can help me to experience feelings I never knew I could; feelings I haven't had yet or at least feelings I haven't felt with that intensity for some time. I love the indulgence of it, the solitude, the isolation of it.

I love how it moves me! How it manages to make my body REALLY move.

I love how music can connect people and I am fascinated by how it can mean different things to different people. I love those moments when music can really enhance an emotion and enable you to really connect with it and submerge yourself in its intensity. I love how music can shift your mood and take you to another place. I love the feeling I get when I share music with other people and I know that they "get it" in the same way that I do.

(However, I am also acutely aware that motherhood has brought me into a world of music that would most likely have otherwise never been touched!)

At one point, my lack of time for the indulgence of selecting to listen to my OWN choice of music stunted my "musical growth" and I realised I was drowning in a pool of songs I knew way too well and had become complacent; dare I say it; boring!

So, occasionally I now throw it out there and ask Deezer, or Spotify to send me a random playlist; this morning it was chilled cafe music I requested to bring me some warmth on a frosty morning stomp.

And I found a real GEM.

Not so much for the music this time which was not quite making me want to strut my funky stuff, but the lyrics.....THE LYRICS took me off to somewhere else, on a welcome diversion that I thoroughly enjoyed. I gained something from these lyrics and so I wanted to share them with you.

Check these out:

"Sometimes I get lonely, but when sadness overwhelms me, I remember that, sometimes isn't always and sometimes is not forever"


"Sometimes I cry, because hurt causes me to shed tears and when the pain gets too much, I have to remind myself that, sometimes isn't always and sometimes is not forever"

WOW again! "And sometimes we go through hard times, and just when I think I wanna give up I give myself hope in the knowledge that, sometimes isn't always and isn't forever"

"Sometimes I feel frustrated that things don't happen as quickly as I would like them to then patience taps me on the shoulder and whispers in my ear that sometimes isn't always and sometimes is not forever"

I don't need to say anymore now do I?
