Song Description

Music or anything else you have a gift granted to you by birth becomes a responsibility to ignore or to pursue regardless of how difficult it maybe. After a live [one to one] performance in the home of the former Ex. Dir. of the Academy of Country music Nikki was told she had better record this song. Nikki decided then from that support she would right then record "Music is the only thing I've had" in her next session which for many years she had performed live after it was written.

Story Behind the Song

Nikki Hornsby like many other professional artist who make little money as a club performer was told always to get a day job since she had a university education which would pay more than the arts. She knew she had inherited the gift of her music and it's responsibility that may be profitable in other ways as this song explains.

Lyrics

MUSIC IS THE ONLY THING I'VE HAD WHEN EVERYTHING

& EVERYONE HAS LEFT ME AND IT'S ALL GONE BAD

IT COMFORTS ME WHEN I AM LONELY & MAKES ME FEEL

I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO FEELS THIS WAY


IT'S LIKE A PRAYER I SAY ALONE IT'S LIKE THE THINGS
I'VE SEEN THAT I FEEL SHOULD BE SHOWN

IT'S THE REASON FOR MY LIVIN GOD GAVE ME A GIFT

IT'S JUST FOR GIVEN
DON'T ASK ME TO THROUGH IT A - WAY.


MUSIC IS THE ONLY THING I'VE HAD MUSIC IS THE ONLY THING I HAVE

MUSIC IS THE ONLY THING

MUSIC IS THE ONLY THING I'VE HAD IN MY LIFE


SO MAYBE IT'S NOT A NINE TO FIVE BUT IT'S SOMETHING

I'VE HAD IT'S KEPT ME DREAMING IT'S KEPT ME ALIVE
IT'S THE REASON FOR MY LIVIN GOD GAVE ME A GIFT
ITS JUST FOR GIVEN
DON'T ASK ME TO THROUGH IT A - WAY.

CAUSE MUSIC IS THE ONLY THING I'VE HAD MUSIC IS THE ONLY THING I HAVE
MUSIC ITS THE ONLY THING
MUSIC IS THE ONLY THING ITS MY LIFE


YES ITS THE REASON FOR MY LIVING GOD GAVE ME A GIFT ITS JUST FOR GIVING DON'T ASK ME TO THROUGH IT AWAY

OH MUSIC IS THE ONLY THING I'VE HAD
MUSIC ITS THE ONLY THING I'VE HAD
MUSIC IS THE ONLY THING I HAVE IN MY LIFE

IT'S MY LIFE

IT'S MY LIFE.
