I fell in love with the sweet sensation. I gave my heart to a simple chord. – Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
“I Gave My Heart to Neil Young”
Music. A chord. What is its power?
Where is this emotion
Coming from Within?
It’s a swelling up through the bloodstream, into the Heart
Erupts raw, jagged. Tears or a smile or a release. Beat.
A chord. A key. A note. A sound, different to every ear that succumbs.
A four-year-old dancing to Steve Earle’s “Copperhead Road” in the living room
Her parents smile on. Happy she is getting an education.
An introduction to the lifestyle,
Neil Young on road trips in the backseat. In awe. The Stones.
Alice Cooper. Don Henley.
Even Def Leppard.
Intro to Music 101. Advanced Music Studies 405.
She handed over her heart
at a young age.
Unashamed. She is ruined.
All other lovers pale in comparison.
Where are you Neil Young?
