Rhyming and Lyrics – Rich In My Heart

Rich In My Heart by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

No one says I wanna be poor
Everyone says I want a bit more
But oh to be rich just in my heart
Would be such a beautiful, brilliant start

Nobody says I wanna be poor
And soon we forget what money’s for
It takes us as captive and draws us near
We become so dependent that we start to fear

We forget that it’s paper & it’s not our own
We forget it won’t substitute heart and soul
We get lost in pursuit ‘til we don’t know we’re crazy
And plated in gold we’re crying out, “Save me!”

No one says I wanna be poor
Everyone says I want a bit more
We’re blinded by greed tryin’ to settle the score
And now we’re here callin’ that money Lord

No one says I wanna be poor
Everyone says I want a bit more
But oh if we’re not rich in our hearts
Our every desire will tear us apart

No one says I wanna be poor
Everyone says I want a bit more
But oh to be rich just in my heart
Would be such a beautiful, brilliant start

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.
