How often do we find our lives expressed in song by the lyrics and melodies of songs we choose? I find it more often than one thinks. One other blogger here named Matthew also has a blog with that same premise.
“Lyric of my Life” is what he calls it.
How true is the concept of art imitating life? Music in itself expresses what we otherwise wouldn’t ,or couldn’t dare to. It connects us to that experience which that of the lyricist portrays.
David ,(King David,of Biblical times) wrote such songs ,or “psalms” relating to experiences in his own life .His heartbreak , mistakes,repentance,reconciliation ,and praise .
Sometimes when I hear a certain song ,my heart is pierced clear through,and it has nothing to do with bitterness.It has to do with other things. Sadness , for the sinful nature of the world ,and the hope of redemption ,despite the wickedness of people ,in general,is often the feeling I get.
I remember that when I hear a particular song, it recalls an old memory of people ,places , and events. I can listen to some song ,and instantly be transported to another time, in my mind.
