Snapshot 4 by caitlin williams

A Twist in My Story has some of my favorite songs of all time on it. 
This album helped shape part of my personality. 

       The meaning of music to me is like putting your feelings out there and not being judged for it like you would if you just said your emotions out loud. Music to me is expressing yourself through the words, the tone, and the rhythm of the song. It is a way to show people how you feel on the inside.             I personally like music with the piano as the main instrument and where you can clearly hear the vocals. I like slow music with people singing mainly about love and their relationships. I am not sure why, I think I might be a hopeless romantic deep down.             Secondhand Serenade was everything to me when I was like 14 to age 17, but I still love all the songs I use to. The beat and rhythm makes me feel a certain type of way and I can’t really explain it but its like a calm feeling. I really relate my life and feelings to a lot of their songs, specifically from their album A Twist In My Story and Awake.  I use to be secretively sensitive and I found realness in their music. I can remember their lyrics off the top my head, some lyrics from my favorite song are, "I lose myself in all these fights; I lose my sense of wrong and right. I cry, I cry. I'm shaking from the pain that's in my head. I just 
want to crawl into my bed and throw away the life I'd led. But I won't let it die. " It's like they have every reason to give up but they don't and thats admirable. 

            I would sit up in this tree I had in my backyard and listen to their songs over and over again and just reflect on my life. I wasn’t emotionally involved with anyone at this time either so I really don’t know why I was so bent on their music like a spoon when you try to use it to scoop out frozen solid ice cream but I was.
