A Reprieve by Melodie Yvonne

Time for us to take another little trip down south
We gotta take a trip to get to trip
We’re making damn good time and we should get there ‘fore we’re down
There’s something freein’ ‘bout this big long stretch

Lucy ‘s ridin’ shotgun and it’s getting kinda late
But I’m pretty sure will get there for the morn’
We done crossed the border and we’re almost to Mobile
But this time we’re not stoppin’ ‘til the Shores

The air is cool, but warm enough to take the T-tops out
The Gulf fog’s swallowin’ up the road ahead
Nights like these are pretty fuckin’ rare anymore
The nights that I forget I’m almost dead

I slide my hand just out the window tryin’ to touch the clouds
My fingertips are surfin’ on the breeze
The Pixies slidin’ in my ear have got me feelin’ fine
Their Wave of Mutilation sets me free

I could live here just like this for every second left
Bubble up this moment and be done
Pump the Volume on the sound and leave the world behind
Until my shadows and my light are one

I could live here just like this and never a regret
Never think about the things I lost
I could live here just like this and leave the world behind
Just me and Lucy and this Gulf Shores fog

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.
