  2. This was written after watching one of the those BEST ALBUMS shows about the Fleetwood Mac Rumours album, Stevie and Lindsay along with John and Chrissie all going through break ups, great songs etc. get and watch it is amazing how they they did anything at all!!!!! So as an exercise, thought at time i would do a GO YOUR OWN SONG (we have broken up but I am alright with it and good wishes) whilst referencing all the aspects of the album show as well, i.e. location etc The original was written in 2014 and I have included it as well for reference - just didn't come up to music well and so kept dropping off the current work list (which at any time is about 15 - 30 songs I am editing or trying to get up to play) - there is an ad campaign at the moment for Isuzu trucks down here in Aus using go your own way which when viewed against the lyrics of the song is bizarre! this prompted me to re-look at the song. Did drop the go your own way line though lol You're my rock, You are Stone V2.3 RogersonLB Left stranded back in Sausalito Drunk and asleep on rodeo beach Waking up alone You'd left and gone Another heart then forever out of my reach You’re my rock, the one I built my life on Strong enough to weather storms alone To stand up and be someone Hope one day you hear this song You’re my rock, you are stone Don’t listen anymore to rumors They win as soon as they’ve been heard What went before Is now no more Truth it was more lust than relationship You’re my rock, the one I built my life on Strong enough to weather storms alone To stand up and be someone Hope one day you hear this song You’re my rock, you are stone Keep reading stories about you doing well Making me think about the late night bars and drugs Then laying talking wrapped in your arms after making love You’re my rock, the one I built my life on Strong enough to weather storms alone To stand up and be someone Hope one day you hear this song You’re my rock, you are stone Your my rock, my foundation Draft RogersonLB Left me stranded back in Sausalito High and dry on rodeo beach You just went, up and gone Your heart forever out of reach You’re my rock, my foundation The only who built me up enough to be someone Stung enough to weather any storm all alone You’re my rock, my foundation You’re my rock, my foundation I’ve stopped listening now to rumors Defeating as soon as they’re heard What ever comes? went before Go your own way follow your heart You’re my rock, my foundation The only who built me up enough to be someone Stung enough to weather any storm all alone You’re my rock, my foundation You’re my rock, my foundation
  3. Hi folks. I'm starting to record this up tempo country swing song I wrote. I'd love to know if you see any problems before I do the vocal tract. Thanks. Started Out Thinkin’ ‘Bout Foolin’ Around Saw her standing in the checkout line Checked her out cus she looked so fine But I felt a little dizzy like I never felt before Left my groceries on the counter when I saw her walkin’ out the door Took her out, but it was just for fun Kind'a guy who likes to kiss and run When we did she said a little somethin’ silly, really made me laugh Then my head jus' started spinning, got me thinkin’ maybe this might last Ch Started out thinkin’ ‘bout foolin' around Both feet firmly on the ground She swept me up like a hurricane Came back down and didn’t know my name Started out thinkin’ ‘bout foolin' around Wound up thinkin’ ‘bout settlin’ down She spun me around and my heart ’ll never be the same Modulate Up Never knew that love could be so strong Thought I could beat it, found out I was wrong She’s the kind ’a woman that a man jus’ can’t resist Got me thinkin’ ‘bout forever with the power that is in her kiss Started out thinkin’ ‘bout foolin' around Both feet firmly on the ground She swept me up like a hurricane Came back down and didn’t know my name Started out thinkin’ ‘bout foolin' around Wound up thinkin’ ‘bout settlin’ down She spun me around and my heart ’ll never be the same Modulate back down Started out thinkin’ ‘bout foolin' around Both feet firmly on the ground She swept me up like a hurricane Came back down and didn’t know my name Started out thinkin’ ‘bout foolin' around Wound up thinkin’ ‘bout settlin’ down She spun me around and my heart ’ll never be the same Since she spun me around My heart ‘ll never be the same Copyright 2017 ~ J. W. McMichael
  4. Headaches

    Hey guys, just wrote this song. Let me know what you think! Can't really seem to come up with a good name for it either, I thought of calling it "Drunk", but that just sounds more like a party song to me. For now I've called it "Headaches" but feel free to suggest something else! Over and over againDown this bottle for helpBut time after timeThere's just none to findI'm so hungover from lifeknow these headaches better than my mindbut lately, I swear I will trybaby, just hold on for tonightCause my head hurts but my heart's worse Just give me a chance I'll fix it, after this dance But I feel drunk, when I sing this Cause it wont make sense, cause we don't I wake up like I'm deadYou're sitting on the bedDon't tell me thoughI already knowGot so drunk that I couldn't speakGuess the Jack just spoke for meTold you things I didn't meanNow you no longer speak to meAnd my head hurts but my heart's worse Just need one more chance After one last dance And I feel drunk, when I sing this Cause it won't make sense, cause we don't Baby, baby , pleaseIf I feel it, aint it real?Ooh Ooh baby pleaseNo, dont you leaveAm I drunk, when I sing this?

  5. Blue

    Just wrote this song, supposed to be a sort of stripped down country blues song, maybe with a little bit of a janis joplin vibe though. Let me know what you think! You have a power over me you hate to use but can't let it be Anything you say, I'll do I any kind of way, I let you Hurt me , cause that's what you do cause when you hurt me, it hurts you too and you hate yourself, like no one else So your favorite thing is to hurt me come back just to desert me and my favorite thing is to let you Do it over, baby do Then at least we share this blue You tear yourself apart cutting through my heart God danm drunk on this pain all we know are these games So you left it there for me to find did her like you do my mind hurt me, cause that's what you do feels like home, all we ever knew misery, sure loves company So your favorite thing is to hurt me come back just to desert me and my favorite thing is to let you Do it over, baby do Then at least we share this blue You love me, baby don't you too much for my own danm good sometimes I wish I'd never met you Cause don't you just love to hurt me Come right back to desert me And don't I just love to let you Do it over, come on do it over, baby do At least we share this blue
  6. Figure it Out

    Hey guys this is a song I call Figure it Out. I'd really appreciate some constructive criticism!! You say that you're so incredible I figured out that you're really not that cool Over and over I fall for the same mistakes I say that I'm too afraid to love You ignored my words to release the doves Over and over I fall for the same mistakes And I Want to believe in you I want to believe your words are really true I don't understand what love is Why do sparks fly when we kiss? I'll figure it out I'll figure it out You say that your armor's laid down So we can be safe and sound I'll figure it out I'll figure it out somehow Time flies when you're having too much fun In the end, we all see the same sun Over and over I see things in different lights Yesterday, the present, future Is it love just waiting to burn? Over and over I see things in different lights And I Want to believe in us I want to believe in you, I can fully trust But I don't understand what love is Why do sparks fly when we kiss? I'll figure it out I'll figure it out You say that your armor's laid down So we can be safe and sound I'll figure it out I'll figure it out somehow Tell me how to love like you Tell me that your heart is true This love isn't fading to grey Because the colors are here to stay I now understand what love is Sparks fly whenever we kiss I've figured it out I've figured it out My armor is laid down Now we are safe and sound I figured it out I figured it out somehow

  10. Fireworks

    "Finished" this song today so it's still super rough, just recorded it on my phone. Need a lot more practice with the guitar playing/vocals but any constructive criticism with the lyrics/structure/rhythm etc. would be much appreciated. Thanks Verse 1: Red wine and closed doors Touched the sky on your floor It was all a thrill at the start Caught onto your old tricks It was only skin to skin But you wanted me to feel that spark Pre-chorus: I fell from so high Just for fun We lit up the night Before we turned to dust Chorus: We were like fireworks But the pain was a slow burn Cuz you didn’t feel it in your heart The ground crumbled where I stood Was it because of her that you had to go and make your mark Well boy, I hope she broke your heart good Verse 2: Was it all play pretend? You say we’re just friends Brushed me off so casually Said the word to make me stay Just air to fan the flame Tragic serenity Pre-chorus Chorus Bridge: Broke your heart good Like you did mine, Never understood Tell me why Chorus
  11. Praying To Be Heard

    Praying To Be Heard Copyright 12/28/2016 Peggy L. Smart-Barnes It scares me When you talk in your sleep Eyes wide open Reaching out as you weep And praying Praying to be heard I feel the same way when I look in your eyes Sunken wondering why Broken with something to say Tied up finding no way I cry the rivers of tears that you do Drowning as I'm holding you Pulled back to edge the tide Seeing there's nothing to hide I hear your pleading that breaks my heart Answered would split us apart Loving is all we can know Mercy when it's time to go It calms me When you quietly sleep Fears now resting Reaching out as I weep And praying Praying to be heard
  12. Somewhere(demo)

    https://soundcloud.com/wkamen/somewhere-final I drift across a secluded beach. I feel the sand beneath my feet. Impressions fading in the sand from a turning tide. I catch a fragrance in the air, i stop to look in wonder as it captivates my senses with serenity. I close my eyes, and see you on that beach swaying to the sound of the waves. A brief vision of all that was beautiful is but a memory. Somewhere Somewhere where love began Somewhere where love blossomed Somewhere only we know I came across a frail beach pea once blossoming binding the sand. Is this the spot our hearts blossomed binding our love? Adrift in the shallows of a changing tide, time ages, understanding deepens and beauty reveals in different forms. Visions of what we shared, once blowing in with the sea breeze, now, nothing more than broken shells scattered in the sand. Let’s go back to those moments of magic to talk about it and put the broken pieces back together to complete our voyage. Somewhere Somewhere where love began Somewhere where love blossomed Somewhere only we know Somewhere only we know
  13. Big Bass Drum- now Algorithm

    Woke up this morning, no idea what I must have been dreaming about, but I rolled right over and grabbed my glasses and my phone and typed this out. It happens that way sometimes. Big Bass Drum I went to see the prayin’ man Who lives up on the mountain He showed me algorithms He made for everyone He said he planned to sell them For a dollar thirty seven Then all the little children Could all get into heaven Every single person The poorest of the brethren Could afford the algorithm That was his intention Since cost wasn’t a problem No need to be forgiven For the thieving and the stealin The cheatin and the killin Just use the algorithm And we all get to heaven They’re a dollar thirty seven Come and get you one I said brother on the mountain That’s a big bass drum All you’ve ever needed was love

  19. Stanfield Major's Lyric Catalog

    Introduction I have been writing lyrics for almost 50 years. If you'd like to hear the complete songs I've had a part in creating over that period of time go to 7thAndBeale.com At this point in my life I'm less concerned with commercial success, though I wouldn't reject it if it came, and more involved in the possibility of my words finding a musical home. And by “home” I don't mean a house or storage shed. I want my words to feel comfortable and respected in their new abode. If one of my lyrics strikes your interest I'd suggest that you go to my website and get a sense of the level of musicianship I'm looking for. One of my other requirements is that you're either part of a working band or you have the capacity to create basic viable tracks. I've done some work on Kompoz.com through the years (you can hear samples on my website) so I know that with a few basic tracks amazing collaborations can be created via the Internet. If you decide to take the next step, and I agree that we should take this step, I'd like to give you some idea what you can expect from me: I've been doing this for almost 50 years. I've pitched tapes (remember cassette tapes?) in Los Angeles and Nashville. I've rubbed elbows with people who had #1 hits. Even written songs with them. But all that boils down to a bucket of warm spit. I wrote one of the worst songs I've ever written with a guy who had a #1 hit. And he probably would agree that it was his worst too (he's no longer with us). If anyone could trap lightning in a bottle we'd do it every day. Doesn't happen. What the Hell are you trying to say to me Stanfield? I hear you asking. I'm saying my standards are pretty damn high. And I hope your standards are too. I love songs. I love songwriting. I want to only produce the best I'm capable of in any given moment. I hope you feel the same way. It's not about ego. Any true collaboration demands that ego be left at the door. It has to be about the song. About what's best for the song. About what makes the song take wing and fly. So... if you'll meet me halfway in an ego-less space I'll meet you there as well. I'm very much open to rewriting my lyrics if you can prove to me with the power of your music that such a rewrite is necessary. I've done it a few times. Examples on my website include Shadow In the Night and Far Away. The lyric for Far Away is nothing like the original. For Shadow In the Night I added lyrics because the music dictated more. Thank you for your interest. Stanfield Major
  20. Shower

    --- ...Now we rest in our beds down there, and the disease that was has left us, and we both were dressed in red. I lay next at him, my beloved, dead. He was merely seventeen autumns old - when he the breath of life no longer can hold. --- Born in the autumn when maple leaves burn bloody red, and the rain is close at hand. Your smile was exchanged for shock and disbelief - when I told you that I'd been struck by the disease. --- "I'm sorry, but I love you so. Hate me if you want. --- I should go. My feelings for you are certain like roses are red, I will not return - will prepare for my rest down there, in my bed." --- Petals of the rose, so silky smooth. Autumn approaches, and his impending doom. Cannot stand the thought about his arms around another. Don't want to imagine someone else be his joy. The rose has started to dry, I cut the stalk, the leaves they cry, they're gloomy red, and I will rest... when he is dead. --- Your smile was exchanged for shock and disbelief - when I stabbed you in the throat, you knelt down screaming on your knees. If you won't be my boy, then I won't be yours, won't be anyone else's, my lovely rose. --- Sleep in the autumn when maple leaves burn bloody red, I embrace my beloved, as he soon joins the dead. The rain soaks us, but the drops are red, I close my eyes, and I whisper to him... "I'm sorry, but I love you so. Hate me if you want, I won't let you go alone." --- He trembles, shakes and coughs, gasps for air - and this is truly it (he chokes), and his eyes are full of despair. Yet the words come pouring, dressed in red... "I love you too." he says and I sit there silenced, slowly going insane. He embraces me and presses his lips against mine as his breath soon will leave, and the rose it starts to wither. I press myself firmly into him as grief cuts the strings of my heart like the blade that cut the stalk. I freeze up, then I cough, and I drench his visage in red. --- Tired, exhausted, sleep awaits. My eyes are shut, I have died of grief, and I had so much to say. I'm losing my color, autumn is here, and just like the rose, we wither away...

    Hi guys! First post here, and just looking for any tips/hints/help you can offer. Thanks for your time I. entirely misspent school friday detention citations every semester spent completely in sedation parents' and teacher's shouts oh! their aggravation realising now not condemnations but wise consultations saying "one day you'll see" saying "one day you'll be wondering whatever happened to youth and how'd it turn out like me" and I'd wonder to myself for what'd be the source well right now I know it well feelings of regret and remorse CHORUS. of course had I known different ways for different days but none of their words stuck in my younger dumber phase oh! of course, of course! knowing now of course! me a horse they took to water but the drink they could not force II. she professed her love spoke that three word phrase but despite friends' advice never received my praise and when her tongue retracted I looked stupidly surprised though her love she'd advertised while I kept mine disguised hailing from heaven but treated like she was dirt and now I have to hold my tongue while with kinder men she flirts and their tongues never rest where mine decided to lay so was once the one I had but now the one that got away CHORUS. of course had I known different ways for different days but none of their words stuck in my younger dumber phase oh! of course, of course! knowing now of course! me a horse they took to water but the drink they could not force Thanks again for your help guys!
  22. I am trying to keep the meaning of this song as vague as possible. If you guys can figure out the meaning easily, then I've done something wrong. 3 AM on a Sunday In Boston, 1996 As I walk through the city To get a quick fix And you sent me a letter Explaining why we couldn't be And yes, I did receive it But I was busy Watched all the light shows Danced in the moon glows Didn't see you go Slipping in the tar This will leave a scar I've gone down too far

  24. Love Is Not All Pure

    Hi there, Something I've been working on and thought I'd see what anyone thinks. I've been writing with a rock tune for this one. Appreciate any comments ... Thanks, Peggy Love Is Not All PureP. Smart-Barnes 10/03/2015 ------ V 1 ----- Nothing changes between us Distance maintains our hedge Up close and denying Our lifestyle gave us the edge ------ V 2 ------ Nothing changes between us Bringing others to show Timid and unyielding First touches that won't let go ------ V 3 ------ Nothing changes between us Dancers crowding the floor Desperate all but hidden Faint shadows we're out the door ------ C 1 ------ I won't constrain you Time is not for sure I can't restrain you Hey love is not all pure Hey love is not all pure Love is not all pure ----- B 1 ------ Lives and years We won't exchange A private love keeps waitingand waiting and waiting ------ C 2 ----- I won't constrain you Time is not for sure I can't restrain you Hey love is not all pure Hey love is not all pure Love is not all pure ------ V 3 ----- Pushing up to confession Risking lifetimes so real Tightened by bonded fate No replacing what we feel ------ C 4 ----- I won't constrain you Time is not for sure I can't restrain you Hey love is not all pure Hey love is not all pure Love is not all pure © P.L.
