"Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and cannot remain silent." - Victor Hugo
Meaning To Me:
This quote means the world to me. I love music and I write my own songs so I totally get this quote. Most of the songs I write, I would never tell anyone to their face but I need to get the feeling out in the open. I write songs based on what I am feeling at the time. I think that songwriters and musicians (professional or not) do this to! Look at Demi Lovato's song "Warrior". If you don't know, Demi Lovato has been through a lot of REALLY bad things like bullying, having an eating disorder, cutting, going into treatment, etc. She wrote the song "Warrior" (in my opinion) to confront the bullies that once bullied her and say to them that they took away her childhood and that they will never hurt her again because she is too strong. Let's look at Colbie Caillat's song "Try". In "Try", she explains that 'you don't have to try so hard' and to love yourself for who you are underneath. You don't have to be like everyone else to be pretty. I know people say that kind of stuff but this song takes a whole new level to it. Overall, I think that everyone relates to this quote because I think that we all have a way to deal with feelings, to get them off our chest, etc. Leave a comment saying how music has helped you (in past, present...) in anyway.
