Running away from life,
She went further and further,
Into a world she’s made,
Her safe haven from herself.
Heart ache an old friend,
She met disappointment,
And pain through her journey,
She was in places bruised and broken.
A light she said she looked for,
A guide she said she wanted,
Some truth, a little faith,
A little love, was all she asked for.
As the music played in her ears,
She heard each beat and its story,
She heard every note and its sorrow,
For all she had left was the music.
In times trying she turned,
To those songs that would,
Make her forget the regret,
Make her one with the music.
The girl grew into a woman,
Wrote a love song for her beloved,
A melody that she wore with pride,
A harmony for the two to live.
It was music that saved her soul,
It was her songs that made her forget,
When the demons from her past haunted,
Her music was all she wanted.
We all have our saviors,
We all know pain,
But what love was to her heart,
Music was to her soul.
