See Me For Me

See Me For Me by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

See me for the me I am when I am all alone
See not just the me I was, but see the me that’s grown
Don’t just love me for the things you think that I could be
Love me for me even when I’m lost and I can’t see

Don’t put me on a pedestal ’cause I’ll just fall right off
Don’t elevate me for all of these things that I am not
Just leave me down on level ground so you can look and see
Just what I am and all the little things that make me me

See me for the me I am when I am all alone
See not just the me I was but see the me that’s grown
Don’t just love me for the things you think that I could be
Love me for me even when I’m scared and I can’t breathe

Don’t flatter me with compliments, I’ve heard them all before
I guess the thing I’m looking for is just a little more
And I can’t take this constant passionless dull apathy
You gotta find your happiness, it can’t all come from me

See me for the me I am when I am all alone
See not just the me I was, but see the me that’s grown
Don’t just love me for the things you think that I could be
Love me for me just enough to know to set me free

Oh please love me just enough to know you need to set me free

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.
