From Punk to Classical with Words

Some Thoughts (still developing)

If you could say it you would not need music. Music is the basic energy that unites and takes us to places we would like to be or not. It can change us speak to us and yet it only exist in the present and then it is gone. The beat represents the driving force that exist in all living people. There is no higher joy than Singing.
