  1. Hi Phil, Enjoy the forums here! There are many of us looking to collaborate and grow in this business. See you on the boards, Lisa
  2. Ha Ha Timbre! You guessed correctly! I got lost though and forgot to keep the Old grouch going... And I notoriously use the exclamation point too much! See!! I can't stop!! LOL Thank you for catching my favorite line about the Digital native in a Holy land. PPlaid has made some great suggestions below. I think that I'll keep most of them.
  3. Most awesome suggestions! I'm in this frame of mind right now to shorten all my lines and forget that it's ok to write normal phrases. Thank you!!
  4. A customer gave me Orchids today! What a surprise :hearts:

  5. Hi There GuesSs! Glad you found Songstuff! Yes, you've come to the right place. We love music here lol! See you on the boards, Lisa
  6. Hey Symph! Nice see your name popping back up. I like this. God has a way of helping when you ask (and sometimes when you don't ask too!) I don't do mixes but can relate this to my songwriting on many of the points you've brought up here. Fear, striving for perfection, writing from the heart, knowing when to quit, being honest, and always grow and learn! See you around! Lisa
  7. Hey There BigN! Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself. Sounds like you've done some travelling (which makes for great stories/songs!) I love that your favorite artists are new and old! I hope you enjoy the site :-) All the best, Lisa
  8. Hi ND! This is very deep. It reads more like a poem to me right now. The line "oh light where are you" has me spouting Shakespeare in my head "Oh Romeo where art tho" in a fun kind of way. If you titled this "Hoping to reach the light" and added this line as a refrain throughout the song it would give it better structure in my opinion. I also like the hopefulness of this line and since you repeated it twice it would lend itself to be the refrain. Glad you're here! I love these challenges and hope you do too!! Lisa
  9. Just a start: The Young Will Steer the Old There's a typewriter collecting dust This young man thinks he will teach us Old guys, new tricks Humph! don't think they mix He grew up a cellphone in his hand Digital native in Holy land Young man, cool life Looking through clear eyes It's a strange twist of fate How life ends up like this Faster than a blink Smarter than you think As you look, behold! the young will steer the old Driving down the streets I thought I'd teach Younger ones see a two way street Wise men lecture Childish adventure It's a strange twist of fate How life ends up like this Faster than a blink Smarter than you think As you look, behold! the young will steer the old Clear as a bell Muddy waters never tell Where they came from, where they're going to Guided by technology To succeed in society It's a strange twist of fate How life ends up like this Faster than a blink Smarter than you think As you look, behold! the young will steer the old
  10. Glad you found us Static! You've listed some great inspirations. Have fun here at Songstuff! All the best, Lisa
  11. Ummm hello faraway, please introduce yourself. Have you been with Songstuff before? You say "still around" like you've been here before. If you take a peek around, I think you'll find there were many posts today and some still going on now so not sure what you mean by deserted...
