David Guetta - What I Did For Love ft Emeli Sandé (MUSIC FOR THE SOUL)

The past weeks have been very tough going through school assignments and all. Frankly, I’ve been feeling like a Zombie. The other day I came across a song on the Trace music channel. You know that moment when you are flipping through channels and you only manage to hear the end of a song. Well that was one of those moments. Immediately I memorised the title of the song and artists to download it.
After the last 99% of the song had downloaded it was like music to my soul. This song was the very mirror of what my spirit went through last year. I would advise anyone who has gone through great lengths to do things they wouldn’t usually do just to make that one person you love happy. Yup, I am sure we have all been there.
Anyways, not to make your heart all mushy right now, but the lyrics of this song are so beautiful. I mean, as much as heartbreaks can be painful, I’ve come to realize that they can be so liberating and free because you are going through the process of letting go of that one thing that used to define your happiness and now you don’t need it anymore.
Emeli Sande is one of my favourite artists, and it is no surprise that she is the vocalist on this David Guetta mixed track. The chorus of this song says
It hurts, but I remember every scar
And I've learned
But living is the hardest part
I can't believe what I did for love
I can't believe what I did for us
Passionately burning to flames
Stitch myself up, then I do it again
I can't believe what I did for love”

Aint it funny how Love can just sometimes hurt you to the point you have no heart Hurt, yet you go back enduring all the pain, hoping for something to change? It’s sad but its life. And honestly if God didn’t truly love us he would have let go of us the countless times we have hurt him. But no. he comes back and loves us even more.

Anyways I hope that when you look back on people you once ‘loved’ or said ‘I love you’ to and they didn’t love you the same way back, it won’t hurt. Rather feelings of joy should feel your heart because you were able to let go of that and your heart is mending, if not it already has. Anyways I recommend this song to all and everyone who has ever loved stitched themselves up and loved again! Be strong, Music is for your soul.

Let the Musical Journey begin!

Ever had that one thing you can’t live without. That even as your day is in progress, you would notice if it were missing. It is so special to you that even if your mom grounded you from it you would throw a tantrum. Well some would say candy, chocolate, God ofcorse (not that I can’t live without him, but keep in mind I mean earthly things people). Anyways for me that thing is music. I find my whole life in music. Everything and every moment for me are musically and lyrically induced.

Therefore with no further a due I present to you “Lyrically Narcotic”. This is a blog for all the people out there who can find music to be their comfort, their solace place and their refuge. This is a blog for the one who couldn’t get a break after a long day. This is a blog for the one who got their heart broken without a word to say. This is blog is for the one who woke up feeling blue. This blog is for that beautiful soul reading this; you guessed it, that’s you.

One thing you’ll notice is I love poetry. Most of what you’ll find here are deep inspirational heart felt written poems. I believe that music doesn’t only have to be about sound. It can be found in absolutely anything from lyrics to the sound of water streaming down the river. God created all these natural sounds for us to enjoy so let’s appreciate them.

Secondly there is no such thing as a bad song or bad genre. People tend to only listen to genre their whole life and tend to judge others based on what they listen to. Life shouldn’t be like that because you are closing yourself up to a whole section of the world that you will never experience if you only stick to what you know. We need to learn to appreciate and find beauty in all kinds of genres be it hiphop, rnb, country, alternative rock, hard core rock, afro-pop, jazz, house music and so forth. I mean people always talk about how racism is bad. But one you solely decide to stick to one type of music, that’s being racist. Yes racist to music. Shame on you!

If your one of those people who just got offended by reading that, chillax. Do not fret my mono-musical friend. This blog is here to change that and soon music and lyrics will be your narcotic too.  Reviews on what to listen to for a first timer and if you are seriously into certain type of genres maybe you can find something that interests you. I would totally recommend that you hit follow and let the music adventure begin.
