Alicia Keys - Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart

Songs are prayers... there is a song out there for whatever ails you.  Just searching for the right song to capture my mood, feelings and vibe is therapeutic.

Sleeping with a broken heart...sums it up.

I completely agree that music IS or can be a form of prayer. It has certainly pulled my broken, shattered heart up from the depths of utter despair.

Methinks it works for so many of us... whether we be real or fictionalized.

Today's quote most certainly applies:

"Music was her mind’s only friend and teacher. Music was the only thing that made her non-life worth living. She rose, bathed, she went through her succession of empty, restless, colorless days, cared for her baby, and she cooked and she cleaned in the vocal companionship of Nina Simone. She played Nina Simone incessantly. She felt somehow in league with that tone. She listened like a musical apprentice to that moaning, yearning, longing cry of Simone’s. It seemed that Nina Simone and she alone, could not only articulate but embody the complexity of this twinge lodged so deeply within her soul."
