  1. When I Heard The Music
    ===================

    When I heard the music,It reminded me of my friend Alessia because she died,
    When I heard the music,It was like I was in Colombia my beautiful home town,
    When I heard the music,It was like I was in my imaginary place where unicorns are,
    but really when I hear the music it feels like I am always with my wonderful family
