Lyrics with Messages


Isabella Ruiz

Do you ever listen to a song and think ‘These fits exactly with what’s going on right now’ or ‘It feels like they wrote this for me’? Because sometimes a song can explain better than words can. If you’re in a situation where you just got your heart broken, there’s tons of songs that relate to that. If you’re having the best day of your life, there’s songs for that too. No matter what you may be going through there is a song that most likely describes what you’re feeling.

Artists write songs to captivate their feelings and emotions. They put what they feel into words or with melody’s and in the end come out with songs. There are many songs that the lyrics show great emotions and messages and are relatable. Situations can be fit into words that can hold so much comfort to a person.

Even if you are listening to a song that doesn’t fit the situation that you’re going through the lyrics flow with you in some type of way. Whether the song comforts you or is just a song you can’t seem to get out of your head its always there for you. Catchy words and background instruments get stuck in your head easily.

There are many great musicians who are lyric geniuses. Song after song they always sound amazing and get stuck on your mind. For me lyrics written by Lana Del Rey, Kali Uchis, Laufey, Cigarettes After S*x, Kanye West, The Cure, and many other musicians get stuck in my head all the time. Lana Del Rey had many songs I find so relatable and can cry and listen to for hours. If “The Other Woman’ by Lana Del Rey comes I will sing the lyrics word for word with sobs in between.

Music is something more than words and instruments put together. Music is something that is always there and can give more comfort than any person can. Lyrics can say the thing you want to hear or want to say.
