Music is the medicine to my soul
When I’m at my wits end and all chaos unfold
At times when my heart is broken and my mind is unease
It swoops in like a cool summer night breeze
When the world starts spinning fast and gets me dizzy
Or the city pace gets way too busy
I slow it down with some R&B rhythms
The melody is like an antidote to see past my cloudy vision
And when joy and happiness makes my heart beat
Hip Hop pull me up to dance on my two feet.
Random nights in the shower doing karaoke
That’s when pop music helps win imaginary trophies
In those times when I’m being tested and I start stressing
It is the gospel music I use to remind me of all God’s blessings
After a long day and I need to rest I put on one of Sade’s jazzy tunes
To make me feel like it’s a lazy Sunday afternoon.
At my darkest moments when I need time to mend
Music is there helping me to comprehend
With all that life tries to throw at me
This is what keeps my sanity.
