Remember that your reinterpretation of this song, breaths new life into it. You can do this because no one has lived your life, your experience. There is a saying, “Be yourself, everyone else is taken”. Look at self-expression like this. Lets say a desk is a metaphor for music. But because of your life experience, the back of the desk interests you the most. Because in your life, you were pushed to the back of the line, your back was up against the wall, and people have told you to “Back the fuck up!”. So when you see the desk, what interest you the most is the back of it. Not the desk drawers, or the surface. But someone else’s story is the top of the desk. Because they have been on the top, all of their lives. So they don’t look down or back. Being on top for them, is what gives their life meaning. There isn’t anything else. Now turn that desk into music. Using music as a metaphor. Let the world hear, what the back of music sounds like. In other words play what comes from your heart. – Lynel Gardner
