Below are poems/lyrics that I feel need to be put to music.
Some are failed attempts at collaborative songwriting, but I still like the lyrics - maybe YOU can write some music to them.
I'll be adding more as I get the time.
If you want to write music for these lyrics, E-mail me.
I Thought We’d Be There
I decided long ago my – Love for you would matter Making everything else out there – Just a faded attraction Then I saw you out there reaching And I knew that I should have been there – Just to reach out to you Standin’ with my back before you – Staring in a mirror Starin’ back I see me eyes and I – Wonder what’s inside them Want to be the one you turn to Everything I seem to try babe – does even more to hurt you I’m Tied up and Cried out and Tired of The hardness, sadness, should have been over now I’m burned out, way up inside and I’m crying ‘cause I thought we’d be there by now All along the way I thought we’d – Find a place that lovers Go to taste the sweetest fruits to eat - forgetting the others You should be the one who’s near me When the others move away and – they intend to desert me Maybe we can take it back when – We felt infatuation Maybe we can see it through this time – And with a little patience We will be the pair they envy And I won’t have to stop pretending – You’re the lover for me So Tied up and Cried out and Tired of The hardness, sadness, must go away somehow We’re so far, way far away and I’m crying ‘cause I thought we’d be there by now C-part: Days are moving fast and faster by Should we try to catch one? Hide under covers,Try to be lovers, lover See if we can make it last this time Show them that our past’s gone Living like lovers who Made it – There somehow
Seasons Changing As we grow from the old to the new Reason Strained We don’t even know what we went through Whitewash Painting Where colors deny their own hue Tearing, tainting So we don’t really know what’s true Like there’s nothing else left to choose Seems like we’ve been down this roadway before And it seems like we’ll go there again, my friend Too many signs that we chose to ignore So we don’t even know where we’ll be at the end We stumble along to the grave Avoiding the roads that we pave We crumble below all the weight Of the useless things that we save Eyeballs tearing From staring too long at the sun today Loosly leering At pitiful struggle and battle and fray Sidewalk rearing Survival is not what it’s cracked to be Gently fearing That the person inside me is me Like there’s no-one else I could be Raising our hand to the sky Hoping someday we will fly But a look never leaves an eye No matter how hard it may try
Don’t Wanna Go There
Hey, I don’t wanna go there Aimie, I don’t wanna go there Your place is nowhere I don’t wanna go there Ophelia, her daddy’s girl Knew to tell that Hamlet no But Amie knows where Amie goes Her entourage is sure to show It’s an LA thing, boys, with lots of bling toys She rattles, sparkles and overflies With cheap emotion, love implosion She thinks she’s bi – but that’s a lie Amie’s got eyes but Amie can’t see There’s more to a life than a drive to be free Thinks she has class and higher than thee standard But taking for free whatever she’s handed Nobody Knows where Amie lost her soul But I don’t wanna go there Evereyone told me Amie just got cold And she forgot how to care And I don’t wanna go there with her Her desires start blazing fires That smolder away with each new daylight She’s too wired and way too tired To know what’s wrong or do what’s right She’s gotta be on and she’s gonna be gone Cameras, lights, it’s a midnight show It’s Aimie’s world, she’s a TV girl An hour of laugh track – now it’s time to go On to the next one and on with the play Her Mantra is how to live life in a day It’s over the top and a slam back to bottom Believing she’s had, ‘lest she knows she’s got ‘em (by the balls) Nobody Knows where Amie lost her soul But I don’t wanna go there Evereyone told me Amie just got cold And she forgot how to care And I don’t wanna go there with her
