Music is Food for My Soul

colorful-bowls

Music is food for my Soul

When my life feels out of control

Music is food for my soul

When I feel that need to connect

I plug in

To jazz

I mean – I expect

That Miles can take me away

My breathing changes

And the tears begin to roll

Cleansing my mind

Music is food for my soul

 

Now it is not always the melody

That takes me on a journey

No, the beat

Makes me tap my feet

And those low steady tones

Of the bass

Keep my groove in place

So when life takes its toll

Music is food for my soul.

And even when I’m happy

There is a place in the melody

Finding myself humming a song

Yes when life is good music still comes along

 

Music is food for my soul

Music is food for my soul

Live music is such a treat

The whole experience is so sweet

 

When my girl Cynthia

Sings My Funny Valentine

My heart opens up

And the memories are sublime.

 

Music is food for my soul

Music is food for my soul

Music is food for my soul

Let’s go eat some

Come

I mean I want a big purple bowl

Of music for my soul.
