  • Lyrics. Something that has prevented me from writing anything more than instrumental music over the years. Feedback most welcome on this. First draft. I'm going to come back to it again and again and refine. The guitar parts I wrote are crying out for a lyric, and this is what has come into my head:

    don't break your heart
    before you start
    to give it up to pick apart
    don't sell your soul
    before you're old
    just try to build up your defences

    your eyes are wide
    it's no surprise
    that you don't see through all my lies
    just make your mind
    up from the start
    that both of us will do our part this time

    did you think you'd stay alone
    did you think you'd stay alone

    I've run for miles, in search of smiles
    *something something something something*
    won't sell my soul
    before I'm old
    I'll try to build up my defences

    Something something all the while. You can have that one for free.




  • figured it out in the meantime ! :)




  • 'Missed Your Flight'

    South of Spain, lookin' lame
    Walkin' down those white clad lanes
    Fiesta all night, siesta all day
    Sippin' on cokes out by the bay
    Layin' on the beach without a care
    Wind blowing sand through your hair
    And
    Missed your flight, now you're alone
    Nowhere to go except home
    It could've been good, it would've been great
    You're too late, your mistake

    Forever and ever, you're never wherever
    Forever and ever, you're never wherever

    It's a lonely road to travel down
    When your life's all about just what you want
    Transfixed on your own happiness
    Those who care about you stay shut out
    You choose to ignore the feelings
    Of the ones who'd love to share your dreams
    So you live in the shadow and your friends leave
    Now you missed your flight
    You knew that you had to do what's right
    Then you turned yourself out like a light

    Forever and ever, you're never wherever
    Forever and ever, you're never wherever

  • One from a long, long time ago. Think I wrote these when I was 17. Not sure how these things work in terms of getting a feel for how they sound when you don't know the melody etc. Insomnia dictates I do something at this hour however

    'The story started, just like a rollercoaster,
    one that doomed to crash
    Standing on the platform,
    I waved and let you go (and)
    Now I know there'd no turning back.

    Once a moment,
    Now a memory (and)
    Now and I only see you in my dreams
    So far yet, so near,
    Its the closest I get to, having you here

    All day long inside this bubble,
    That I have come to call my world,
    Seasons come and take their toll,
    Thoughts of you pierce my soul.'

    Verse, bridge, chorus. Repeat the bridge and chorus.

    That was basically it I think. Very basic notes also but a big deal for me when I was just starting out writing and playing live :)

    (There actually may have been a second verse, I am thinking there was but for the life of me I can't remember it right now!)

    "People say ‘go with the flow’ but do you know what goes with the flow? Dead fish."

  • Hell I'll throw in another one, was a poem initially but put it to a piece of music.

    "She's gone,
    left me here all alone
    No one to love
    No place to call home, anymore.

    Its been,
    a long time since she went away,
    Some more have come but none have stayed,
    Too long.

    I know that, I'm sad and
    I know that, makes me mad just
    Thinking bout, what we had and
    Which one of us was, to blame
    Yeah well
    **** it, your all the same.

    But I still remember your name,
    I wonder could you say the same?
    Freeze when you walk down the hall
    Would you even know me at all?

    She's gone,
    left me here all alone,
    no one to love, no place to call home
    anymore."

    Full of teen angst around that time obviously!

    "People say ‘go with the flow’ but do you know what goes with the flow? Dead fish."





  • Its not right
    Cuz I'm turning on the tv screen
    All I see is people crying, people hurting people dying,
    Epidemic hate and war, not knowing
    What the fight is for
    Mothers praying for their sons
    Lets stop the hurt
    Lay down the guns

    Its not right
    It should take so much for us to see
    Right through the hurt though the lies
    A mindset of hypocrisy
    Its all ok as long as its not
    Happening upon your door
    You can turn the channel over, if you don't want to see more

    When will we wake up, and realise
    This ways no good, not anymore
    When will we see that loves the dream that
    We should all be fighting for
    When will wake up
    And just feel love
    Just feel love

    Its about time
    Start looking at whats hid beneath, expose the truth stop buying lies
    That pays to paint the war torn skies
    Our money fuels the war machine that puts an end to unborn dreams
    Our money helps to feed the flames that lends its name to hatreds game

    Its about time that we stop believing all the hype
    The bull****s smeared on every page and now we don't know wrong from right
    Infects us from an early age this system just provides a cage
    That has no place for our free will
    We're choking on its bitter pill

    Its truth,that we been choosing not to see
    We think of it from time to time and then dispel it from our minds
    The image on the TV screen, is the raping of somebody's dream
    Its not enough to sit and pray the **** just happens every day

    Yeah and its truth
    That we been choosing not to see
    Disease is gonna take us all
    Its breaking through Africas wall
    We've gotta stand come one and all
    Educate or else we fall
    We've all got blood beneath our skin
    Its time we start to look within

    When will we wake up and realise this ways no good, not anymore
    Wehn will we see that loves the dream that we should all be fighting for
    When will we wake up and just feel love
    Just feel love

    And its real
    Cause we see it happen everyday,
    But most of us just walk on by and simply turn our head away
    Remove the kind, from human kind
    Why give us eyes when most are blind?
    Whats happened to the world today, its changed in every single way

    Yeah its real
    When somebodys taken from your life
    It hurts like nothing else you'll know, no room to breath, no where to go
    Stop looking at the things you see
    As if they don't apply to me
    Start thinking of the peoples hurt
    Value of what lives are worth

    When will we wake up, and realise this ways no good
    Not anymore
    When will we see that loves the dream that we should
    All be fighting for
    When will we wake up and just feel love
    Just feel love
    Just feel love

    "People say ‘go with the flow’ but do you know what goes with the flow? Dead fish."
