Beyonce speaks directly to me

20/10/2014 15:19

You know when you listen to a song and you feel like the artist has tapped directly into your mind? I love that. When your whole psyche changes and you feel raw emotion just by listening to music. I love that. I'm addicted to music and don't know where I would be if it didn't exist. I've been feeling really down lately. For months in fact; and I was listening to one of my favourite songs yesterday and it really sounded different to me all of a sudden... like it was me singing those lyrics, rather than just hearing them. 

 

I wanna leave my footprints on the sands of time
Know there was something that, meant something that I left behind
When I leave this world, I'll leave no regrets
Leave something to remember, so they won't forget

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I've done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here

I want to say I lived each day, until I died
And know that I meant something in, somebody's life
The hearts I have touched, will be the proof that I leave
That I made a difference, and this world will see

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I've done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I've done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here

I just want them to know
That I gave my all, did my best
Brought someone some happiness
Left this world a little better just because

I was here

 

Do you ever obsess about leaving a legacy and then being happy to leave the world behind? Is having children enough of a legacy? Do you ever wonder if creating children is as much as you can do for them, because you know they deserve more than what you can offer them? I don't feel like I could achieve anything more than to have been a part in creating the 2 most beautiful souls I've ever known. When music speaks directly to you and gains unrestricted access to your emotions, it's a powerful thing...

My husband and I always talk about the legacy we will leave our children. I think all you can do is to try your best and be the best parent you can be.

There are some songs that just do that aren't there.

I think music can speak to you. I was listening to 'Dance with My Father' on the radio last night, and could identify with every syllable being uttered.

You are lucky to find the song which actually speaks directly to you... I was ever only able to do it with parts of the song :-)

There are quite a few songs that do that to me now, it is odd how they capture your mood x

Music is my very favourite thing ever, and I have so many songs I adore - so I guess my legacy beyond my kids would be the music I have made with my bands that will stay behind me!

You know, I don't think I can even place these lyrics with their melody. I'm going to have to look it up. I'm feeling oooooold right now. :)

I've always loved music and am so glad that Boo has inherited this from me - music is a great way to have fun, bond and build memories which ultimately are the best legacy you can ever hope to leave behind.
