The music is tied in knots. Locked within a piece of sheet music, it will only find freedom when it is performed. The song could contain emotion and experience. Once you hear the song, it could remind you that you are not alone in the journey you face. Your experience can be understood because another has also traveled this road. The song may offer empathy that will be valuable to the listener. If the performer does not play his or her music, the song could be lost forever.
