  1. Hey Goldylocks, I like your take on this challenge. It's alway interesting to see what comes out. I all have a full read tonight. Had a fire in the oven yesterday and still cleaning up.
  2. Here is kudos to you from the other Jan, really nice.
  3. Hi James, thanks for your comments. I changed the last verse a bit from my original post, don't know if you have seen that yet. I'm really getting frustrated with my computer, screen keeps rolling and I keep getting lost. lol Jan
  4. Les, I made the changes where suggested although not exact wording. Does it fit with the melody you have in mind? Would love to hear it. Jan
  5. V I am just someone with lots of words to say I write them down in lyric form Post them anyway, sit and wait It could take forever, maybe just a day I know my songstuff buddies Will tell me what they think B Honestly, honesty is what we get from them Some of our critics are now our songstuff friends C Great minds think alike, not trying to pretend Where our voice may carry Some without amends V Never thought where this could lead Words written on a page Someday we hope to hear them on a full set stage All because of we took a step, became a little brave Perhaps we’ll hear them one day over air waves V Yesterday I heard someone say We’re gonna take our songstuff away I could not believe what I just heard, I pray Say it isn’t so If it weren’t for posts on songstuff lord knows We’d have nowhere to show B C Forever and ever, ever Amen
  6. I posted my challenge #44 today, but I don't see it here. ? Where did it go, I can only see it under my content page.

  8. Sorry my screen keeps rolling, it must have rolled right past. The stupid screen, I need a new lap top. Nice job Goldylocks. Jan
  9. Hey Goldy, good job on the edit, my question is have they overcome what it was that caused the breakup and rage? What was the reason for the rage? Overall I like, might make it tighter with some explanation. jan
  10. Hey Goldylocks good to see you here, I'll add my thoughts later when I have a bit more time. Jan
  11. Thanks James, I like the idea of the chorus duet very much and agree there is still something else needed to bridge the gap. Thanks for your thoughts, as I try to work it out. I do like the title though, to me it suggests love will survive, what started out as love, goes through pain, rallies and is still strong in the end. Jan
  12. This is what I have for this challenge, sorry I have been away so long. Challenge #43 JD Harris: Because I Fell in Love With You Female vocals: It used to be just me and you When we were young and our love new You promised me, would always be Right here No fear Somewhere that all got changed All messed up, got rearranged All our dreams turned into rage We couldn’t turn one more page To see our dreams come true Where were you Where were you Male vocals: So many times I tried to speak Tell you I was weak I didn’t mean to hurt you in this way Could not behave Not very brave Then in all my mixed up mess I just lied, did not confess Thought I’d ignore it, go away Make it better any way, but You couldn’t stay It wasn’t you It wasn’t you Both: Who’d have thought we’d be here today Face to face standing in this place So much time there in between From what we had, where we went wrong All our dreams still stand strong Yet unseen Couldn’t we Couldn’t we Male: I remember all that we once had Remember more good than bad, and Today I make this pledge I swear to you I’ll keep you safe with all I do Honor our love, keep it true I couldn’t live without you one more day Please stay What do you say? Do you feel it too? Female: I know it’s true, so much has changed But there’s one thing that still remains Deep in my heart not rearranged I feel it too, my love for you Always true and yes I do Together: I will always everyday Love you Finally our dreams are coming true, all Because I fell in love with you
  13. Weekly challenge # 42 Racism, might be too late but I thought I could use the exercise Not Just Ferguson Missouri Lyric by JD Harris V Prejudice and racism rampant everywhere We all know better from where it is we came It’s not just black and white forced to play this game It’s the color of your skin and the kink in your hair The kind of clothes you’re seen in When you go out, you dare Might not make it home again Stories fill the air C Seems we’ve forgotten what we learned at home and school We were taught as children to live by the golden rule Do unto others as you’d like done to you Silently, thank your lucky stars that you are you V Religion wars and power nothing will suffice Gawd what have you done Jesus? Why did you sacrifice? With all the strife around us Does it still feel wise? Didn’t seem to turn out as you had in mind, or thought We’re not all really nice, some think the devils hot V The way we treat each other has really got me down There’s still too many hungry, young dying all around What will it take for us to see we’re really all one? No one is better than any other one It’s what they hold deep inside Too much is buried, unjustified pride No one will understand if you let truth hide B No one will find their peace, until racism has died
  14. Hi John, Is the poll still open for the Strolling Bones? Do I have to wait 'til the poll is closed before I can edit Sixty-Nine. I would like to edit by putting the correct title, its title should read: Highway Sixty-Nine. Jan
  15. First off I will say to Goldie, you got balls! I mean that in a good way. Good job on not only your final lyric, but also vocalizing it, nice, very brave. Secondly, once everyone figured out who was doing who, things progressed well. I of course don't know much technical stuff, but I tried to offer what little I could. Finally. even though I did not have much time to contribute to the group this past week I found this challenge to be extremely helpful and enlightening in pointing out my weaknesses, syllable counts, rhyme schemes, critiques etc. It's all a learning curve for me.
