Rhyming and Lyrics – Previously Ate

Previously Ate by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

You’ve made me feel much less than worthless
For all I did you’ve made me useless
Your fake love’s what’s kept me going
But now all your lies are showing

And I just don’t care to see them
I don’t wanna meet your demons
I don’t wanna meet more faces
Or help you train my replacement

I just wanted you to love me
But your love goes on without me
I just wanted you to see me
But you don’t want me to be me

What am I supposed to do when I can’t keep my mind off you?
How the heck will I move on when all the hope you gave me’s gone?

You’ve still got all of your heart left
Still you tore mine out with one rip
You done moved to someone else
But tried to keep me on your shelf

Well I done found some self-respect
A place that you’d have never guessed
I found it deep inside myself
And now I’m done with all your “help”

What am I supposed to do when I can’t keep my mind off you?
How the heck will I move on when all the hope you gave me’s gone?

Well I done answered my own question
I’m the horse you always bet on
‘Cause I’ll wallow for a while
But stayin’ down is not my style

You might think that I still need you
And might think that I’ll be back too
But that means you never knew me
And I’m done lettin’ you use me

What am I supposed to do when I can’t keep my mind off you?
How the heck will I move on when all the hope you gave me’s gone?

Well I know what I’m supposed to do when I can’t keep my mind off you
I know how I can move along I’ll just keep singing me this song
I know what I’m supposed to do to keep my wallowin’ mind off you
I know how I can move along I’ll just keep singing me this song

‘Cause all I need’s me and my songs

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne Ramey, owner, editor, & contributor at Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the young age of 5, and was immediately hooked. Every trip, even just to the local park, was turned into a fantasy scene of her own imagination that would later be turned into epic tales in word and photos.

Melodie spent her teen years learning from and mentoring under professionals such as Richard Young, John Sheckler, and The Grand Conundrum. She received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors such as Hoosier photographer Darryl Jones, Jonathan Wilson, and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up with photography and listening to amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when they hear the music. She wanted to help people SEE the music by capturing every magical moment of concerts that she could only dream about as she gazed into music magazines like Rolling Stone and Spin.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to even being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography, as well as one of a kind photographic creations. Melodie published her first print book Photographic Memories: In the Beginning, a collection of poetry, in 2011, and has since published 2 more print works, Photographic Memories: Meet me in the Middle and Hoosier Heavens, her first photo book. Melodie currently acts as publisher, editor & lead contributor at Photographic Melodie and does freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and artists.

Melodie says, “I started out with a Tweety bird camera and a dream and I never let go. I will always love photography and the vessel it has given me to share the images of my heart and mind with the world. I have found that every single person on this earth visualizes the world in very different ways. Some people are optimists, some are pessimists. Some people are daydreamers, and others keep their feet firmly planted on the ground. Photography allows me to show some of these different visualizations. It allows the rationalist to see that it’s okay to dream, it can show the monsters hidden in the dark, and it can show even the saddest of people that there is still joy in the world.”
