Broadjam Member Reviews
A tune about the trials on the journey of learning to slow down one's mind with the goal of living a more relaxed, meditative life. The writer doesn't take herself too seriously.
Story Behind the Song
The song provides a glimpse into the modern-day female mind of one who is learning how to slow down life and slow down one's mind towards a more meditative lifestyle with less stress. She pokes a bit of fun at her own out-of-control moments.
Reminiscent of a '70s song. I like the sound of the music.

Drama Queen in Your Head [C Diane Westin]
Constant chatter, fear, and lies, my mind hides truth behind a disguise
My brain's acting up like a spoiled child, It's wild.
Thoughts like snipers, constant unrest. Gotta unravel this relentless mess
Feels like a case of brain distress, it's a mess.
Can't fight the war with words, Gotta step back and watch the absurd,
Observe, slowly, watch and wait, is how you stop a runaway train
Stopping the drain in your brain, stop believing the lies and dread
Living in the moment instead, no more drama queen, trapped in your head.
Running play backs in my mind, How could you have acted so unkind,
I'm rehashing words, composing lines, all the time,
I should have said black when you said white, you're not here and we're having a fight
The narrator keeps talking on and on, it's so wrong
In the moment there's hidden magic, be like a child.
The drama queen was dogging me today, she was directing another play
You were the lead cheating on me, I screamed,
So I rose above it like a hawk in the sky, from the clouds I could see the lie,
The judge and jury just disappeared, No more fear
