Tell me does it move you, does it soothe you, does it fill your heart and soul with the roots of rock and roll.*
There are lots of songs that give me chills. Lyrics reach down my throat and clutch my organs until my eyes water and my breath stops. I’ve been knocked back ,wind lost, words like fire inside me repeating. I am you. I am you. I am you.
Standing in a photo gallery in Tulsa the words play, immediate goosebumps and shared glances. I am you.
Traveling with strangers through hills of California to destination Sunset, live music two shows back to back. Electric, acoustic. I am you.
Borrowing words from songsto etch ink into skin, a permanent mark of the effects of music. I am you.
When you cant get through it, you can listen to it. *
* lyrics by Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson.
