I have a poor memory for song lyrics. I just don’t think I care enough. The everyday noise in my brain leaves me with just enough energy to be attracted to sounds that aren’t necessarily the words in the English language.
I struggled to understand my parents when they spoke to me in their native language (not English). Much of it was a series of sounds that I couldn’t relate to. It became the norm that I wasn’t going to understand them all of the time.
When it comes down to it, I feel my music and sometimes the feeling is good. Sometimes the feeling is not good.
