“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness”- Maya Angelou

I have been listening to a lot of music these days and I finally decided to piece all my ‘music thoughts’ into a playlist. I wasn’t too sure what to call it but I realised that one thing all these songs have in common is that they speak my thoughts or experiences. I will say that quite a few have made me cry- maybe because they speak to me? Or they’re just that emotional, I’ll never know. Most of them I wish I wrote myself because they are so relatable. There are quite a few artists I’m sure most of you have heard of…otherwise the bulk of the playlist is made up of artists not a lot of people are familiar with.

The main genres found in this playlist are Alternative Rock, Indie Folk, Dream Pop, and Indie. There are a range of artists in my “diary.” from Keane to SZA.

Here is a list of my favourite songs in “diary.” and the lyrics that got me the most:

Unsaid– Flor

“Can’t be my selfish nature. Can’t be my sin. Are these feelings I long for, best left unsaid?”

You sigh– Charlie Cunningham

” You sigh, there’s so much I could have said. But I wasn’t ready then, and I’m still not.”

Somebody else– The 1975

“I don’t want your body,

but I hate to think about you with somebody else.

Our love has gone cold,

you’re intertwining your soul with somebody else.”

B a Nobody– SOAK

“The teenage heart,

is an unguarded dart.

We’re trying hard,

to make something of what we are.

Dying trapped between-

The main blanket and new sheet.

We’ll never amount

To anything.”

What’s the Matter– Milo Greene

“What’s the matter?

What’s the matter with you lately?”

“Oh, your love,

is never good enough.

Oh, your love is lost on me.”
