For those of you following my blog, I’m sorry for posting so much! I’m in the process of moving over my old website to here, so that’s why it seems like I’m writing so much. Once everything is set up, my posts will probably be once every few days. But thanks for reading this blog already! I really do appreciate it.
Anyway, one of the questions people ask me sometimes, is what inspires me to write music, or what my songs are really about. My songs do not have any words, so everything is open to interpretation. But for me, even though my songs are not about any one thing, it is more about a feeling. I don’t want to get too depressing on here, but I write many of my songs when I am in a sad mood. That is true of all my songs. I don’t consider myself a sad person, but things do seem to affect very deeply. Many things just get to me and it’s not that I try to dwell on it, but I can never truly forget how people have hurt me. That is one of the reasons why I am so thankful that I can play the piano and write songs. It truly does help me feel better and my songs are kind of like a diary, only without words.
I wasn’t even going to share this, but I figure what the hell. I wrote a song titled “Invisible” about 6 months ago. Nothing horrible was going on in my life at the time, so don’t worry…it’s not really that bad. But that song is about how I feel sometimes in this world. Invisible. I’m not saying I’m alone, because I’m not. That is not really what I mean. I feel invisible in the sense that there are people around me, but they do not see me. Do not truly know me even though I’ve been with them so long. So, in the song, it’s like I was wondering when exactly did that happen? Like, when did I become invisible to you? Didn’t things used to be different? Did you ever know me at all? Or did I just think that you did? So, to me that song has a melancholy feel to it, because I was just thinking about my life and the people in it, while I was writing. So, there you have it. That’s what my song “Invisible” is about.
Here the song is below if you’d like to hear it (or it is also in the music player to the right).
