As a composer, I find written words to be something beautiful and musical. When certain words collide together, it is like hearing a crisp chord playing with full body and emotion. This is probably why I have a tough time finding books that speak to me, because I perceive words as song, and thus, if the writing does not sing to me, then I cannot testify its meaning.
Nothing more detains me than forced writing, or even writing large words for the sake of writing them. It is like puffing one’s feathers to show off the colors, hiding the lack of story.
So when I tell people that I think of words as notes, and books as music, they then think I do not like pop music. Which is entirely not true. I just don’t like it forced. Which is why I am on and off with Taylor Swift (more on that next post…yes. I will be writing a blog regularly…this will be a thing 😉 ).
So hence why I feel the need to share lyrics that speak to me every week. Not only my own lyrics, but others as well. We think songwriting most of the time is a good beat with great rhyming. But sorry to all the Tituses out there, but without good lyrics that flow in the air within the music, you have something that sounds fake, vanilla, and not relatable. (The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, 2015, Episode 6)
So, this is why I do what I do, and why I back up amazing lyrics!
Here are lyrics from the talented Gina Gajdosik, with her song that she wrote for her upcoming movie, Make Me Blush. Follow her and the process of the movie here, as well as #makemeblushmovie and #TeamMMB!
Without further ado, lyrics!
