Music power

There is something inside some songs that I can quite explain. Sometimes, I just listening to some song and, as it finishes, I feel some urge to hear it again. Then I go after the lyrics, ’cause when I hear the music, it all feels just like one single thing, undistinguishable from the rest. And, reading them, I finally realize there is something related to my life.

The fist memory from something like that was “When the Tigers Broken Free”, by Pink Floyd. At the time, my relationship with my father wasn’t something you could call “perfect”, but we both tried to improve it. Today, I can hear the same song without the strong emotional impact I had at the time (as, in the same way, our relationship improved a lot).

A few days, “Marathon”, by Rush, was playing a lot with my head nonstop. A race? Maybe. I really running after what I want and I’ll not give up so fast, as the music says.

And, five minutes ago, I felt in love with “Time Stand Still”. And, after seeing the lyrics, I really saw it fit on what I’m thinking.

I really believe there is something hidden inside a music. You like one because there is something hidden there that connects to you, even if you don’t realize what it is.

I turn my back to the wind
To catch my breath
Before I start off again.
Driven on without a moment to spend
To pass an evening with a drink and a friend

I let my skin get too thin
I’d like to pause
No matter what I pretend
Like some pilgrim
Who learns to transcend
Learns to live as if each step was the end

(Time stand still)
I’m not looking back
But I want to look around me now
(Time stand still)
See more of the people and the places that surround me now
Time stand still
Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger
Experience slips away
Experience slips away

Time stand still

I turn my face to the sun
Close my eyes
Let my defences down
All those wounds that I can’t get unwound

I let my past go too fast
No time to pause
If I could slow it all down
Like some captain, whose ship runs aground
I can wait until the tide comes around

(Time stand still)
I’m not looking back
But I want to look around me now
(Time stand still)
See more of the people and the places that surround me now
Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger
Make each impression a little bit stronger
Freeze this motion a little bit longer
The innocence slips away
The innocence slips away…

Time stand still
Time stand still!

I’m not looking back
But I want to look around me now
See more of the people and the places that surround me now

Time stand still

Summer’s going fast, nights growing colder
Children growing up, old friends growing older
Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger
Experience slips away
Experience slips away…
The innocence slips away
