The Songs Lyrics History
Song lyrics are known since the very beginning of song writing in ancient times. Mayan people have written lyrics on stones, for songs dedicated to gods and performed on rituals. Then in ancient Egypt lyrics have been found on papyrus sheets which represented songs that ancient pharaohs wanted to listen, and also song lyrics dedicated to Amon Ra the Egyptian god of the sun. Many song lyrics are now interpreted and translated to English or other languages and the originals writings are kept in museums around the world.
Song lyrics have taken their special place since the ending of the Baroko and special attention has been given since then. The Lyrics revolution appears with the fast development of technology where music has gained a special place in every culture. The early 60es, 70es and 90es bring the first lyrics that people actually paid special attention on, since they represented the emotional adventures, the life experience etc. Love has gained a special place in song lyrics since it's descriptions, stories and adventures are an enormous source of experience and inspiration.
With the appearance of computers, internet, mp3 players etc, lyrics have made yet another revolution in song writing and music it's self. Since the music is developing really fast and the number of different style is constantly increasing, lyrics again become more like one with the music and sometimes are hard to understand or remember.

It has been a long twelve years since Garth Brooks announced his retirement and hung up his spurs to spend more time at home with his three daughters. Now, there’s a glimmer of hope that he might be getting ready to start touring again.
During a recent interview before his performance at the 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede, Brooks said: "It's always been about the babies. Our youngest is a junior in high school now. Our oldest, we just celebrated her 20th. If God lets us do it and everything goes well, I would love to tour again."
He also mentioned that he might even be up to performing with his wife, Trisha Yearwood, who he used to write music with but eventually left his wife to marry. It was a difficult time for the couple, with fans struggling with the situation. He explained: "I'd love to tour again with Miss Yearwood and have no guilt but I'm still two years away."
Have his daughters inherited their father’s love of the spotlight even though he hasn’t performed for such a long time? "My youngest has got it. She's got the bug but she's got the goods, too. She starts playing and singing, I have to get up and leave because I spent my whole life crying. It seems the older I get, I cry at commercials."
He plans to be supportive, too, of whatever his girls choose to do. He said: “My Dad told me to get a real job and now when you see that it is actually paying the bills and paying for college, you can't tell your kids you can't make a living at it if they try hard enough."
Hopefully, he will be dusting off his hat and hitting the stage in a couple years. In the meantime, you can catch him at the Wynn for his show in Las Vegas.
