Gentle music

Gentle music

Always I’ve loved music
How I love to write those songs
I love to bash on the old guitar
And sing my words so strong
But gentle always does it
Sheer noise, I cannot stand
I love a real sweet melody
With a lovely soft, sweet band.

It seems the melody has gone
From music, now these days
Everyone just screams and shouts
Their minds all in a haze
From every kind of booze and drugs
All sweetness played right out
The young guys call it music
But me, I have my doubts.

I write my songs with sweetness
The words as plain as day
I need to get my words across
Not put folk in a daze
I want to see folk happy
Not doped out of their heads
I’m not out to feed the mind
I choose the heart instead.

    That special element & quality in music has lost that magical touch, that made it so eloquent & beautiful to listen to...the natural vibe it gives you, that sweet bliss is so rare now adays...love your thoughts so true, Peter ty4sharing:0)

    Have no doubt at all That all this sound and fury Is not what to us was music In the days of melodies Softly, sweetly rendered Through the wind of an old guitar.
