Dreaming in Reverse by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

Every time I’m dreaming my dream I’m back on that bus to Detroit
With every tear drop that falls away goes a little bit more of that noise
The rain turns to sleet, though, and freezing rain puts a nice sheet of ice round my heart
And this soul grows weary I think it quite clearly can no longer get a cold start

The roar of those tires found pavement on down
These muffled old headphones don’t drown out the sound
All of those things you said on that day saved my revenant soul
What a lie you became

Every time you knew I’d be there, and all of that time I guess you didn’t care
You knew I loved blind and loved unaware, and now it’s your soul that’s the cross that I bare

The roar of those tires found pavement on down
These muffled old headphones don’t drown out your sound
All of those things that you said on that day gave me unabashed hope
What a lie you became

The patience I lack is the patience for fate, I’m foolishly locked in a warp speed like wait
I feel like I’m tip toeing right off this globe, I spin outta control and just hope I’m not thrown

‘Cause the roar of the tires found pavement on down
My muffled old headphones don’t drown out the sounds
All of those things you said on that day saved my revenant soul
What a lie you became

All of those things you said on that day put a noose round my throat
What a lie you became

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne, lead photographer and owner of Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the age of 5, and was immediately hooked. By the age of 15 she began to turn every trip, even just to the local park, into a fantasy scene of her own imagination, and started mentoring with many local professionals. Melodie received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up listening to many amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when listening to music. Her goal was to help people SEE the music.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography. She published her first print work, a collection of images & poetry, in 2011, and has since published many more print works. Melodie currently acts as owner & lead photographer at Photographic Melodie, House Photographer for Purdue Theatre, and Tour Photographer for multiple Billboard Charts topping bands as well as freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and musicians.
