Does vault need to be separate?

Am I able to make my whole documents folder into a vault, allowing me to link between any markdown file on my computer?

In other words, am I able to store other file types in my vault or should it be a dedicated folder just for Obsidian files?

I am a musician who currently uses Roam for lyrics, but I really like the idea of keeping lyric md files in the same folder as PDFs, MP3’s and logic files, but still being able to retain the benefits of linking. If this is possible I will switch to Obsidian!

I keep all project files in the same vault - whatever type of file they are. Usually, but not always, I put them in separate folders to make it simpler to work in the file explorer.
