“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words
and that which cannot remain silent.” ~ Victor Hugo

One of the things in life that I find incredibly inspirational is music. I love melodies and I love lyrics. When they are skillfully and beautifully put together I am in awe.

I recently discovered a new band called Gypsy Soul. Cilette Swann the lead singer has a beautiful voice and great stage presence. Guitarist Roman Morykit plays the guitar beautifully and also has a remarkable voice. Their ability to write powerful and touching lyrics is remarkable. Below is the lyrics to one of their songs called Be The Change as well as a video that includes the song. A second video shows the band performing a song called Who.

Is there a particular singer, band, musician or song that inspires you?

BE THE CHANGE

(Cilette Swann / Roman Morykit)

We are flesh and bone and
We are parts unknown
We are ashes, we are dust

We are rogues and kings
We are bold extremes
We are jury, we are judge

We are strength and heart
Though we are miles apart
We are one, we are love

We are hopes and dreams
We are noble beings
We are diamonds in the rough

Have we lost sight of all we are
Forgotten history and its scars
Reduced ourselves to doubt and fear
Given up what we hold dear

Freedom is won and fought
Lives are lost, souls are bought
But lasting freedom lives inside
Within our hearts and in our minds

So, BE THE CHANGE you wish to see
Be the peace that sets you free
Be the love you want to feel
Be the cure that helps you heal

Be the dreams that you desire
Be the spark of your own fire
Be the future you inspire
Be the wings that take you higher

So, BE THE CHANGE you wish to see
Be the peace that sets you free
Be the love you want to feel
Be the cure that helps you heal

Be the dreams that you desire
Be the spark of your own fire
Be the future you inspire
Be the wings that take you higher
BE THE CHANGE you wish to see
Be the peace that sets you free
Be the love you want to feel
Be the cure that helps you heal

Be the dreams that you desire
Be the spark of your own fire
Be the future you inspire
Be the wings that take you higher

Here is a video/photo montage that someone created and included the song Be the Change by Gypsy Soul
Here is another song being performed by Gypsy Soul called Who
