    When I can’t see my way and my vision is a blur
    I set my thoughts on my faith above reflecting on “How I Made it Over”
    Gospel connects mine eyes to thee
    Love is the music in me

    Dancing a jig on my heart’s front porch
    Blues ignites a fire deep within like the Liberty torch
    When it feels like “The Thrill is Gone” I can still reminisce with glee
    Love is the music in me

    Pumping that fiya track that gets me all revived
    Sending jolts through my body…yeah Hip Hop is Alive!
    Inspirations to “Live Your Life” to the fullest degree
    Love is the music in me

    Swaying to the soft grooves of the Rhythm and Blues
    Visions of “Simply Beautiful” passions that one cannot refuse
    Sailing the sensual waves of the romantic sea
    Love is the music in me

    How could I forget Country and Western...I like it...shoot, I can't hide!
    The only black man to be inducted into the Grand Ole Opry was Charlie Pride
    Sending sweet whispers that "Somebody Loves You Honey"
    Love is the music in me

    Jazz keeps me grounded in my soul
    Thoughts of "What You Won't Do For Love" taking control
    Nodding my head to the sounds of the sweet jubilee
    Love is the music in me

    Music and love fit together like fine wine and cheese
    Relieving me of my tensions with gentleness and ease
    For the existence of one without the other just cannot be
    Love is the music in me

    yes

    music the soul of existence
    the music is you, you are the music
    can i get a witness?
    music refreshes your spirit
    like a present
    on the morning of christmas

    the music in you
    the music in me
    the music in we
    the vibrations hum
    a melody

    in the presence of life

    Music can certainly lift one's spirits, and your flow is a great example of just how. I can relate to this wonderful scribe.

    Yanno sister its my lil 2 cents that allowing other perspectives will most definitely broaden your horizons and consequently your skill set.
