I sit here watching videos on MTV
The important part of which escapes me
Because I can no longer hear
The music I once held so dear
Breaks my heart, I miss it so much
It was to me an emotional crutch
To lift my soul when I was sad
To ease my rage when I was mad
I jammed Nsync’s Christmas album through the years
Even loved the bubblegum pop of Britney Spears
Metallica, Ozzy, Poison, Matchbox 20 and Skid Row
Beatles, Monkees, Robbie Williams on and on I could go
At least I can still hear them inside my head
Can’t take that away even though my hearing is dead
