Love Lyrics.

Music is one of the most wonderful inventions. Whoever first invented a sound and sung along, they're a genius. We hear our favourite singers on the radio, see their videos on our TVs, and download them onto our iPods. But to all of you who are a lyric person like me, and pour over the lyrics, linking them to phases relevant to your own lives, and situations and using them to explain them with words you couldn't strum together so perfectly, imagine if one of those songs were about you. Imagine if Bruno Mars was telling the world that you were amazing exactly the way you are. Imagine if Chris Brown was writing about how super human you make him feel. Imagine if Drake was writing about how you were the best he ever had.

Imagine hearing that song every day, knowing there are girls and boys round the world wishing those lyrics were about them, using them in their Twitter and facebook status's. And imagine knowing it were about you.

"You know I've got this theory, there are two kinds of people in the world. There are lyric people and music people. You know, the lyrics people tend to be analytical. You know, all about the meaning of the song. They're the ones you see with the CD insert out like 5 minutes after buying it, pouring over the lyrics, interpreting the hell out of everything. Um, then there’s the music people, like Brooke. Who could care less for the lyrics as long as its just got like a good beat and you could dance to it. I don’t know, sometimes it might be easier to be a music girl and not a lyric girl. But since I’m not, let me just say this. Sometimes things find you when you need them to find you, I believe that. And for me its usually song lyrics."
