music and lyrics

(When this began)
I had nothing to say
And I get lost in the nothingness inside of me
(I was confused)
And I let it all out to find
That I am not the only person with these things in mind.....

  Thus began that famous song of Linkin Park 'Somewhere I belong'..
There are songs which seem to speak straight to our hearts, which alternatively comforts or disturbs us in the way it seems to be singing the story of our lives... Songs such as the one I mentioned earlier.. or songs like Lenka's 'The show'.. 


I think I am not alone in this feeling, for often I find my friends and I listening to songs and laughing over how much it matched our present frame of mind.. 
And it is not a new phenomenon in my life either.. Since time immemorial, I have found that I express myself through songs.. I connect deeply to certain songs so much so that listening to them becomes almost equivalent to thinking and analysing to me.. I associate songs with people as well. So for most of the people I have in my life, I have songs associated with each of them.. 


My favourite character in one of my favourite dramas once said the following lines, and according to me, there is no better explanation..
" 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.. 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."
 I could have summed it up in a better way.. :)
