MUSIC HAS TAUGHT ME
Music has taught me
It's inexpressible content
Music has taught me
Life's inexpressible content
Music has taught me
Sound exists not by itself
Music has taught me
Sound's relation with silence
Music has taught me
In this world sound doesn't live on
Music has taught me
All sounds evaporates
Music has taught me
Sound's metaphysical power
Music has taught me
Sound is ephemeral
Music has taught me
Sound is like colour
Music has taught me
It's shades and it's tones
Music has taught me
Not to attack chords
Music taught me
Notes need sustained
Music has taught me
Poetry is like music
Music has taught me
It reaches within the soul
Music has taught me
It touches the heart
Music has taught me
That it can inspire
Music has taught me
How to bring tears,
Music has taught me
To touch emotions within
Music has taught me
It comes in many flavours
Music has taught me
It is not just the structure
Music has taught me
It is emotion
Music has taught me
To listen
Music has taught me
Hearings not seeing
Music has taught me
To see deep within
Music has taught me
All about God
Music has taught me
The meaning of love
Music has taught me
It expresses life's thoughts
Music has taught me
It needs no translation
Music has taught me
A composer is a spirit guide
Music has taught me
A composer a medium
Music has taught me
The composer's music is his crystal ball.
Music has taught me
It can be technically perfect yet dead in spirit.
Music has taught me
It brings responses in heart and mind
Music has taught me
It has a psychological and spiritual effect on you
Music has taught me
A Musician sends light into men's soul
Music has taught me
It's answer to life's mystery
Music has taught me
It is the most profound of all the Art's
Music has taught me
It is the speech of angels.
Music has taught me about life
