Sounds of music

Pin Lim 1982 (Montreal)

Sounds of music

Welcome to my world where I move to my own beat
Everyone has their own tunes written on their music sheets
Flowing at a different frequency to genres and people view
Some are fast-paced like heavy metal
Some are more rhythm and blues

What are the chances of two people connecting and being in sync?
Discovering each other’s melody while they bond over drinks
Maybe you're out tonight forgetting someone or getting attention
For you to pull my heartstrings while we're recording our session

Playing my part to hear my soul vibrating its core and feel all its melodies
Listen to my notes and feel its genuine vibe and not just another parody
For the rest of the world to see how I've become so immune
Breaking down each word coming from me while I'm out of tune

From the lyrics that I'm trying to express and for you to push play
All I can do is just rearrange my playlist for another day
To one day touch, a chord inside you resonating and feel its heartbeat
And hear the sounds that echo through you while we're on repeat.

Have you ever felt this way or am I still playing solo?
But since I cannot tell so here's my demo for you to show
Where does the music end...on a high note?

Listen to my heart before you cast your vote.
