music therapy …

have you ever heard a song that cascades over your soul like a waterfall? have the hooks sunk into your heart so deeply, that they leave a mark? i was introduced to a band called twiddle, sometime in mid january. at the time, their song “lost in the cold” was exactly where my head was at. as i watched the sun slowly begin to recede over the horizon tonight, the lyrics flowed through me. except this time, i was able to feel the light within them …

i’m lost and i can’t seem to find my way home

i’ve been burning up time

burning out my mind

on an endless winding road

all my burdens keep me hurtin’

ever present ever certain

all alone, they keep eating up my soul

it’s hard to see the future

when the present doesn’t suit ya every day feels like a blinding cold

blinding cold

there’s a hole in my energy

it’s burning out my sanity

eroding the thrill of getting old

i don’t fit in with society

its blinding my integrity

while undermining my goals

it’s blurring my intensity

and muting my ability

to avoid the bumps in the road

i can’t execute the skills i need

relax and keep my dreaming free

while stumbling out in the cold

i’ve been struggling for way way too long

it’s time for a change i’m ready to move on

and, yes, i’m scared to right all my wrongs

but i’ll be ok i’m stronger than i thought

they’re gettin’ bold with technology

it’s eating up our decency

so why do i feel so alone?

i’m disconnected from my family

my friends don’t wanna talk to me

it’s getting out of control

i turned from my destiny

and filled it with an evil seed

that soon began to take hold

the truth was right in front of me

that all along i held the key

to let me in from cold

in from the cold

and i’m not gonna waste one minute of this life

i got a second chance to do what is right

i’m gonna dance in the rain, and lay out in the sunshine

take all my pain and turn it in into moonlight

take all my pain, and melt it with the sunshine

take all my pain, and turn it into white light

take all my pain, and give myself a good life
