  1. Love your verses but I think the chorus could be better structured, personal opinion. I may be wrong on this but until I hear it with music I just can't go for rhyming every line like that. All I get is Dr. Seuss when I'm reading it. The rhyming couplets in the verses can work well sometimes but maybe it is because you have the rhyming couplets in the verses you need to change up the chorus a bit more. Love the story line and it feels pretty powerful as well. Best of luck, Bryan
  2. Hey James, This is really cool. I find reading this lyric almost as calming as hearing the rain myself. I was kind of thrown by "patting of leaves" also. Never heard that either. I have heard, "pitter-patter of the rain". I thought maybe, "rain on the leaves" would work??? Very nice lyric!! Bryan
  3. Very nice Neil!! I especially like the chorus. I might think of changing one line in the chorus. I know it is good to drive home the "hook" and it does work well as is but I think I would replace one of the " "i'm all yours if you'll be mine" lines. Great write!!
  4. Thanks for the kind words Ovsathom !! Glad you like it. Hey Neil, Thanks so much for your response!! I never really thought about the names of US cities being very creative, probably because I grew up here and have visited much of the contiguous 48. I do remember driving through parts of Wisconsin and thinking, "Damn, how boring" that no one could think of names for many of their roads. Most in the southeastern part of the state are just numbered or are represented by only letters, ie: Highway A, Highway AA, and so on. So glad you like it!! Here is what we came up with for the music. Many thanks go out to Mr. Mark Alan Dooley for his fantastic vocals and guitar!! http://www.kompoz.com/music/collaboration/615784/file/617128 Very much appreciated!!
  5. Hey guys, Thanks so much for all the comments and suggestions!! Les - No, it hasn't been picked up for music yet but I haven't really shown it to many people yet. Gary - I hadn't thought about the concept of actually bringing "the other woman" into it but I can see how you could bring that into the equation. When I wrote the first draft I was just thinking about the protagonist simply trying to find himself among the clutter in life. Since he drives a truck he is of course economically challenged to say the least. Money is usually the root of all problems but never the answer so it seems. Randy - Thanks for the critique!! I did intentionally leave it somewhat open to interpretation and a bit vague. Maybe a bit too vague. CC - Thanks so very much for the kind words!! It still needs some work I believe but leaving it on the back burner for now. Thank you all very much!!
  6. Hey Randy, I like your theme very much!! It's the kind of thing I write a lot of. If we can make just one person think, then we have changed the world in some way!! Really love the way you mix the headlines also. The extremely dramatic with the mundane works so well!! Looking forward to hearing this recorded man!! All the best, Bryan
  7. Cool!! I wouldn't worry about the f-bombs. It's a perfectly good word. Nice tune!!
  8. Ok, I think I got it now!! How about this updated version?? Peace Of Mind (Update) Rollin’ down the highway burnin’ up the night Two more days to Phoenix in my plan to make things right Left my home in Jackson and a little girl so sweet Markin' time as miles go by beneath my driver’s seat Chorus: And I can’t change time… God knows I’ve tried… I get left behind an’ I still can’t decide just where you look for my... peace of mind We both were young an’ restless blinded by the heat Loves candle burnin’ at both ends an' I'm caught in between This ol' highway's feels so alone it snakes on through the night Keep hopin' it'll lead me home but there ain't a soul in sight Big wheels roll on 'till the mornin' light Chorus: =======
  9. LOL, Hey Gary and Les, Yes, I meant that to have as many different meanings as you can come up with!! But it will change for the formal version when it goes to music. Nice catch!! All the best, Bryan
  10. Hey rublalup, Thanks for the kind words!! Very much appreciated
  11. I pulled this one out from the back of my book of lyrics and thought it would really work well with a tune I came across. Just a few changes to improve the flow and I think it is close to working. http://www.kompoz.com/music/collaboration/615784/file/617128 Peace Of Mind by B K Williamson © 6/14/2013 Revised: 10/19/2015 Rollin’ down the highway burnin’ up the night Two more days to Phoenix in my plan to make things right Left my home in Jackson and a little girl so sweet Markin' time as miles go by beneath my driver’s seat Chorus: And I can’t change time… God knows I’ve tried… I get left behind an’ I still can’t decide just where you look for my... peace of mind We both were young an’ restless blinded by the heat Loves candle burnin’ at both ends an' I'm caught in between This ol' highway's feels so alone it snakes on through the night Keep hopin' it'll lead me home but there ain't a soul in sight Big wheels roll on 'till the mornin' light Chorus: =======
  12. This is a good one man!! I think it all works except for your Bridge. TM has a point there and I love Gary's idea to emphasize "bitch". The bridge just doesn't flow as well as the rest for me. The meaning in the bridge is satisfactory but the wording can be better I think. Very nice write, Bryan
  13. Love it Peggy!! Is your middle name really Lynn? That's my wife's middle name, Sandy Lynn. Even though she was born in Washington DC I tease her about probably really being born in someplace like BF, Tennessee like I was. lol Anyway, I don't think you should change a thing. All the best, Bryan
  14. Hey Peggy, I really think this is your best lyric so far!! I tend to agree with Gary's insight here. You brought the beauty and love out in the open as it should be seen by all. No mater what the universe has dealt each and everyone of us, we all have the capacity for love, which is pure no mater what some fanatical bigots may spout from their twisted and hateful minds!! Kudos for a wonderfully poignant and well crafted write!! All the best, Bryan
  15. Fantastic message in this lyric Gary!! Only one line didn't seem to flow: "All because when push came to shove" Think it's the word "because". I would just drop it if it still works in the structure without it. Awesome write as usual!! Bryan
