Staring Right Straight In The Sun by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

I’m staring right straight in the sun
Wondering what on earth I’ve done
and now I guess you’ll never know me
I just wanted you to own me

Empty is as empty does
You swept me underneath your rug
You fall behind, I run in place
Hoping just to glimpse your face

Hopeless is as hopeless does
I’ll make it like it never was
and I’ll erase me from your history
Hoping that you won’t forget me

Staring right straight in the sun
Wondering what on earth I’ve done
and now I guess you’ll never know me
I just wanted you to own me

Staring right straight off in space
I let my mind eclipse your face
Just shadows of the you that knew me
Guess you thought you couldn’t lose me

Lonesome is as lonesome does
I swept me underneath my rug
I’m nothing now but broken memories
Out of tune and off key melodies

Empty is as empty does
You ran ahead, I fell in love
and now we’re just too far off track
I run away, and don’t look back

I’m staring right straight in the sun
I’m wondering what the hell I’ve done
and now I guess you never knew me
Guess you’re just not use to losing

Staring right straight off in space
I let my mind eclipse your face
Just shadows left of you that knew me
Guess you thought you couldn’t lose me

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.
