Lyrics say it all

It has been a while that I shared my love for music with you all. Music is inspirational, and it is okay not to like certain songs, and certain bands or singers. It is very okay. Sometimes it is even better that way. The music world would be incredibly boring if we all listened to the same songs.
Sometimes I get inspired by just one song, or one specific song speaks to me in an intense way because it literally describes where I stand in life, or where I'm heading towards. Sometimes songs remind me of good old times, sad moments in life, or of someone special. The following two simply describe me and my thoughts... ...I had to sit down and carefully listen to every word and right now, these words are so perfect I cannot find another word describing life at this very moment any better.

Mirror, Mirror on the wall, Have I got it?
'Cause Mirror you've always told me who I am
I'm finding it's not easy to be perfect
So sorry you won't define me
Sorry you don't own me

Who are you to tell me
That I'm less than what I should be?
Who are you? Who are you?
I don't need to listen
To the list of things I should do
I won't try, I won't try

Another day in this carnival of souls
Another night settles in as quickly as it goes
The memories of shadows, ink on the page
And I can't seem to find my way home

And it's almost like
Your heaven's trying everything
Your heaven's trying everything
To keep me out

All the places I've been and things I've seen
A million stories that made up a million shattered dreams
The faces of people I'll never see again
And I can't seem to find my way home

I get most of my music inspirations from TV shows.
Some shows bring the best music at the very end of an episode...and it's always so terribly good! ;)

Where do you get yours from? 

Hope you get inspired today!

Music: BarlowGirl "Mirror Mirror" and Five Finger Death Punch "Far From Home"

Yup, tv and movies. There are som seriously amazing soundtracks out in the world. Then I'll love a song, look into the artist, and love the artist. It's my favorite way to expand my music library.

It's funny, as I was reading your post, I was realizing just how much PICTURES inspire me, not lyrics. Lol. I must be a visual person. I love the photos you chose for this post. :)

I'm headed to Pinterest to pin that first picture and maybe the second, he he. Gorgeous lyrics and you know the pics inspire me, hence my 2000 plus pins. Oh brother.
