Music or Die

Written by: Busaba Patanawiroj

*Music or Die*


I have greatest delight in music
It carries me, permits me to live
Bringin' memory of matter and spirit
Fascinating, beyond what is classic

Playing along, sitting, on the beach
Music clears emotion, it's dramatic
Changing a world, winning all idealists
Instrumentally, leavin' me, convicted

Simply a harmony, a dream unfinished
Music 's a world, or evermore splendid
Don't know what language, but what it did
To the noble, castoffs, sonatas, unique

Music makes me dance, longer than I wish
Imparts in wisdom and thought....now I live!
