Rhyming and Lyrics – 13

13 written by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

Dedicated to Shannon Hoon <3 <3 <3

Every day you remind me of what you could have been
The little trinkets you leave us full of love you send
A dollar here a dollar there and everything we want
But all we really want is you right back here in our hearts

We close our eyes and see your face look back at us each day
But we don’t wanna make it go, we wanna make it stay

We close our eyes and try to make it all stay
We close our eyes and try to make it all stay
We close our eyes and try to make it all stay

Every day you remind us of what you could have been
Our heads all full of cavities are trying not to sin
But every day that flies by you get further out of reach
And we just wanna have you here with us with all our souls to keep

We close our eyes and see your face look back at us each day
But we don’t wanna make it go, we wanna make it stay

We close our eyes and try to make it all stay
We close our eyes and try to make it all stay
We close our eyes and try to make it all stay

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.
