  1. drift away

    Hey y'all, Did a wee bit of a rewrite. I suck at following thru with these, emotional writer that has issues getting back into the moment. Tho melodies tend to stick with me the emotion of the write eludes me at times. anywho an attempt. First write is at bottom Tho first write does have edits from when first posted. Rock on Sometimes , Baby sometimes It's so hard for me to dream I want to close my eyes And simply drift away Somewhere, I Hope somewhere Everyday you lay awake Thinking of the times we shared And wishing you had stayed Let's close our eyes And drift away Dream together Like we use to do Let's close our eyes And simply drift away Some say , Now some say I know i need to let you go And maybe one day I will It just won't be today Should I , Aahh should I Take a chance And reach out to you Would you close your eyes ? And simply drift away Let's close our eyes And drift away Dream together Like we use to do Let's close our eyes And simply drift away Those painted clouds are just pictures in my mind The buzzing in my ears is the ticking of the times Do I dare to read between the lines? Would you place your hand in mine? Let's close our eyes And drift away Dream together Like we use to do Let's close our eyes And simply drift away Sometimes , Baby sometimes It's so hard for me to dream I want to close my eyes And simply drift away Let's close our eyes And drift away Dream together Like we use to do Let's close our eyes And simply drift away First write Sometimes , Baby sometimes It's so hard for me to dream I want to close my eyes And simply drift away Somewhere, Girl somewhere Could you be laying awake Thinking of the times we shared And wishing you had stayed Let's close our eyes And drift away Dream together Like we use to do Let's close our eyes And drift away Some say , Now some say I just need to let you go And maybe I will one day It just won't be tonight , Should I , Aahh should I Take a chance And reach out to you Would you close your eyes ? Ask me to drift away with you Let's close our eyes And drift away Dream together Like we use to do Let's close our eyes And drift away (rough draft bridge) Those painted clouds are just pictures in our mind The buzzing in our ears is the ticking of the times Do I dare to read between the lines? Would you place your tiny hand in mine?
  2. Lean On Me

    Instrumental: http://vocaroo.com/i/s1DoMz3TmVrP Sometimes in our lives we all have pain We all have sorrow But if we are wise We know that there's always tomorrow [Hook] Lean on me, when you're not strong And I'll be your friend I'll help you carry on For it won't be long 'Til I'm gonna need Somebody to lean on [Verse 1] Never been in a situation I couldn't deal with This for the ones who thinking that pills will not make them feel it Everybody makes mistakes, it's not your problem Even if you feel you deserve to be at the bottom This for the ones who think they need help, 24/7 When you never feel okay and you're stuck on sadness You think the pain and stress is something that you cannot fathom You think there is no way that you can ever get to heaven But this is why you got me, why you got a friend, When you think you're all alone just remember (Bill Withers) We all need somebody to lean on When you open your door, and you see nothing but rain Nothing but rain and darkness so you sad again (Bill Withers) We all need somebody to lean on [Hook] Lean on me, when you're not strong And I'll be your friend I'll help you carry on For it won't be long 'Til I'm gonna need Somebody to lean on [Bridge] So just call on me brother, when you need a hand We all need somebody to lean on I just might have a problem, that you'll understand We all need somebody to lean on [Verse 2] You know you got me right? There is no reason for you to be sad When you're feeling down just know that i'm right here to make you glad Turn bad feelings into good ones Flip the frown upside down Take your anger and sorrow Just turn it around And if you don't wanna talk, I won't make a sound I'll bring my tone down but i don't know if you hear me now And sometimes it don't even gotta be face to face But Ima let you know that you can always just, just (Bill Withers) Call me, if you need a friend Call me, oh baby now Call me, if you need a friend Call me ... yeah ever need me Call me, call me Call me, call me Call me, call me Call me, call me Call me, if you need a friend Call me, call me Call me, call me Call me, call me Call me, call me Call me [Outro (Crowd Singing)] Lean on me, when you're not strong And I'll be your friend I'll help you carry on For it won't be long 'Til I'm gonna need Somebody to lean on So just call on me brother, when you need a hand We all need somebody to lean on I just might have a problem, that you'll understand We all need somebody to lean on
  3. Hi all, Knocked this together this morning after feeling reflective. Open to someone adding music and vocals. Don't really have a melody in mind so it's a blank canvas for a willing participant - feel free to reword the expletive! When Did I Grow Up? Words by Darren Thomas Copyright 2017 V1 Driving too fast The musics too loud Don’t like cities cos I can't stand crowds A romantic dinner Instead of a rowdy bar I'm not that old but I've come so far When the f*ck did I grow up? V2 Cultured cities Instead of days of booze Country walks cos I love the views Time with you Instead of girls in cars I'm not that old but I've come so far When the f*ck did I grow up? Bridge Time passes so fast when you want it slow I know so much that I don't wanna know I long for that ancient sweet innocence When life was fun without consequence V3 A romantic dinner Instead of a rowdy bar Time with you Instead of girls in cars I'm not that old but I've come so far When the f*ck did I grow up? I'm not that old but I've come so far When the f*ck did I grow up?
  4. Ok, so, yesterday I deleted this original thread by mistake! Duh! So I've reposted so that the awesome Daveit aka dislocatedlove can carry on working on it if he wants (or anyone else who wants to) Im sooooo sorry for those of you who replied really positively - hopefully the site guys can recover the original thread - I put in a support request so hopefully it will get sorted. I'll Always Be Your Dad (C) Darren Thomas 2017 I was sitting in my local bar sipping a cold beer Brooding alone my thoughts were unclear When in came a young girl out of the cold She sat down beside me and made me feel old ‘Hey mister do you wanna buy me a beer? I'm single and lonely and in need of some cheer’ I looked at her blonde hair and her sparkling blue eyes And I thought for a second before I replied ‘Does your mama or daddy know that you're here? You drinking with strangers would fill them with fear Because I have a daughter about the same age as you And if this is what she was doing I know what I'd do’ I would call her and say I was sorry And tell her that I'll always be her dad She'd know that I always would be there If ever she was lonely and sad Well she sat there with tears filling those beautiful blue eyes And I handed her a napkin as she started to cry I got us some water and she nodded and smiled And I sat there and watched her as she remembered my lines Then she got up and hugged me and she left the bar I smiled at my reflection and I walked out to my car I sat in my car thinking before I started off on my way I dialled a number as I knew just what to say: I called you to say I was sorry And tell you that I'll always be your dad So you know that I always would be there If ever you were lonely and sad As I'm driving down the highway with tears in my eyes I see a lone hitchhiker looking for a ride She opens the door I see familiar blue eyes She sits down beside me and I hear these lines: ‘Hey mister do you wanna drive me all the way home My daddy is waiting and he's all alone It's been years since I saw him, at least 2 or 3 And I'll always remember those words you said to me’ So I'll see him and say that I’m sorry And tell him that he’ll always be my dad I know that he’ll always be there If ever I am lonely and sad
  5. So I'm 19, and I have been writing lyrics for years. They've always been song lyrics, not rap lyrics. So here is my first attempt at rap lyrics. I kind of just slammed this down on paper, so it is really raw. Help would be really appreciated! I know I shouldn’t miss you But I f*cking do You were everything to me Going on year three You almost took what I couldn't get back Yet you had a girl waiting for you on deck While I was in the box ready to bat Bat for us, fight for us I was ready to give us my all But all you did was let me fall You didn’t try to catch me You sat there and practically laughed at me Now I am here writing this And you're out there f*cking her in the mist Of my own tears over you It shouldn't be true But thats just how f*cked up this was How f*cked up you are because You had her lined up for after For after you f*cked me But no it didn't come to that Literally I didn't cum for that I guess I kind of faked it Outsmarted you with my sexual wit I guess there’s somethings you can’t screw I can’t believe I thought I loved you You left me like I meant nothing Guess those three years meant nothing
  6. Over the past few years, I've noticed a growing trend. Lyricists have begun referring to lyrics as "songs". It's becoming more & more commonplace on musician/writer forums like Songstuff.com. To be perfectly honest, it bothers me. I've considered mentioning it in posts...on the forum itself, but decided to do it in a blog article. A blog is less likely to be taken personally. Back when I began to notice this trend, I whipped out my trusty Websters dictionary & looked up the word "song". Much to my surprise, one of the possible definitions listed is...."a poem easily set to music". Go figure! So I guess technically, it's not an inappropriate use of the term. Still, it does seem needlessly confusing. After all, we have a perfectly good, time-tested, accurately descriptive, universally understood term for lyrics...."Lyrics"! Regardless of Websters one technical exception, use of the word "song" implies a number of characteristics.... That it's more than simply written text. That it's able to be listen-to, or played (as in the case of sheet music). That it contains some melodic, musical or rhythmic elements....above & beyond basic lyrical meter. I'm willing to bet that much of the general listening public shares my preconceived notions. Don't think so? OK then....do a little test for yourself. Ask 10 of your non-writer friends to describe what comes to mind when they hear the word "song". Any bets as to how many of them respond "words-only"? So why has this practice become so commonplace? I can't know for certain, but I can make a couple of educated guesses. After all, this is a blog. It's human nature to embellish whatever we do...along with its value & importance in the overall scheme of things. Bluntly put....it sounds more impressive to say that you write "songs". Safety in numbers...someone does it, someone else mimics the behavior...the more we see it, the less anyone bothers to question its' correctness. So what am I really getting at here? First of all, I'm not implying that lyricists aren't a valuable part of the songwriting equation. They certainly are! It's the word "part" that some seem to be ignoring. Here's a quick example of what I'm talking about. An engine is an indispensable part of a car. Fact is, a car won't do you much good without one. Yet, you never hear a mechanic refer to an engine...as "a car". Despite its importance, they recognize it as only a part of the final product. I imagine they also recognize how confusing it would be, if they began calling 2 different things by the same name. I'm also a bit bothered by our seemingly endless need to alter the traditional meanings of words. Take the word "hero" for-instance. Use of that term was historically reserved for extreme behavior. Thirty years ago, when you heard the word used to describe someone, it was safe to assume that they had done something truly extraordinary! But nowadays...you can't turn on the news without hearing the term applied to countless situations where people simply did....what common sense would dictate they do. Forgive me, but that's not heroic behavior! That's living your life in a responsible manner! Yes....we should encourage, recognize & reward responsible behavior. We simply shouldn't label it heroic! Give us another 10 years & the word will be virtually meaningless. This trend is making effective communication un-necessarily difficult. On musician/writer boards such as Songstuff.com, I regularly see member posts asking people to "review their song". Songstuff has both a "lyric critique" section and a "song critique" section. Which of those 2 sections would you guess that poster is attempting to direct you toward? Fact is....we don't know! We also get many inquiries about "how to post a new song for critique". Quite frankly, we don't know how to answer! You see, the procedure for posting an audio (song) file, is completely different from the procedure for posting a lyric (text-only). Well that's all I have for this installment. Hopefully...if you're a lyricist, I haven't angered or alienated you. I promise that wasn't my intent. I'm simply trying to improve our ability to communicate. Help us to help you folks! If it's a lyric, please call it a "lyric". BTW - If you haven't already figured it out, the answer to the question posed by the title is - "When It's A Lyric"! Till next time!

  7. That Night You Danced With Me

    That Night You Danced with Me Patty Lakamp © Copyright 2017 V1 Lakeside dance Killin’ time Summer resort on my parents’ dime V2 Just showed up For somethin’ to do All that changed when I laid eyes on you V3 Your arms were tan Your dress was white Asked you to dance, the music was right We swayed together, like willows in a breeze Chorus: And I felt my world turn around that night That night you danced with me V4 I asked your name You took my hand Swept me up in a wonderland We sat by the lake and talked together till three Chorus: And I felt my world turn around that night That night you danced with me Bridge: Do you marvel at the role of chance How it changed our lives at a summer dance A lucky moment and our course was set Imagine if we’d never met V5 Together for years Still a romance Our son is off at the summer dance Maybe he’ll see a girl like you were to me Chorus: And he’ll feel his world turn around like that night That night you danced with me Instrumental Bridge And I still can’t believe the miracle of that night That night you danced with me first draft: That Night You Danced With Me Patty Lakamp © Copyright 2017 V1 Lakeside dance, killing time Summer resort on my parents’ dime Just showed up for somethin’ to do All that changed when I laid eyes on you V2 Your arms were tan, your dress was white Asked you to dance, the music was right We moved together, a willow tree in a breeze --See comments below. Revised to: We swayed together, like willows in a breeze Chorus: And I felt my world turn around that night That night you danced with me V3 Asked your name, you took my hand Swept me up in a wonderland We sat by the lake, and talked together till three Chorus; And I felt my world turn around that night That night you danced with me V4 Those years are gone, but not our romance Our son is off at the summer dance Maybe he’ll see a girl like you were to me And he’ll feel his world turn around like that night That night you danced with me Instrumental bridge: Chorus: And I felt my world turn around that night Given Sreyashi's comment below on this last chorus, does this line work better: I'm still overwhelmed by the miracle of that night or I still can't believe the miracle of that night That night you danced with me
  8. What makes a good collaborator?

    So what makes a good collaborator? I ask because apparently I'm not. But I'd like to be. My situation: I'm not an experienced collabber. Technically I suppose I'm theoretically kind of a multi-instrumentalist, I guess. I play some guitar, some keys, competent on bass for pop and most hard rock (not necessarily metal , and def not jazz or prog) - but I'm only good on drums. I write music and lyrics, and I do everything down to the fx. When i get an idea, I tend to get a large spectrum of it: the lyric content, and lyric feel, the word imagery, the music genre or sub-genre, sometimes even down to instrument tones. Of course I don't get most of the details right away (and sometimes never), but I get a fairly complete overall picture of where I want the whole thing to go. I get its personality. Then I have to rise to the occasion and make it real. Aaaand it seems I also do this when collabbing. I tend to take over because it's my responsibility to bring my idea to life. And yes, I definitely think I know what I'm doing. Obviously the jury is still out on whether I actually even have half a clue, but I always try my best. Collab #1 fizzled. Part of that was technical delays on my end, but the initial writer eventually decided to return to a version of his original draft, and maybe shouldn't have offered his idea as a collab in the first place. Maybe. I dunno. The 2nd is an EDM song, which I'm very new to, and my collabber is better at it than I am, but completely missed the musical feel of the early draft lyrics I sent - maybe partly because I hadn't captured that feel in those early lyrics anyway, and partly because the subject matter and the target audience aren't things he can relate to personally. We were both very upfront about that before jumping in. So I sent an early draft version of the whole thing, and he kept bowing out, and eventually said I should send him my complete version and he'd like to help me produce it. That's great, but as a writing collab, I'd call it a fizzle. Collab #3 was some very nice pieces of music from one writer, and a very nice lyric idea from another. Just words here and music there. I warned them I was getting serious ideas for the whole thing, and would prolly try to take over. They said to go for it. So I arranged the music into what I'll swear on a copy of Atlas Shrugged is meant to be the verses, chorus and bridge. This required significant lyric rewrite, so I also wrote new lyrics with the feel and imagery I told them upfront I had in mind. The music writer seems to be happy, but the lyricist understandably feels left out. I used as much of the original lyric as I could make work, which turned out to be just the overall idea, the title, and the bridge (which I fleshed out and re-paced). So this hasn't fizzled, but if an initial writer is unhappy, I can't call it a success. These are all good and talented people (and I've found them all on these critique sites). I've been happy to have a chance to work with them. But the fizzle rate is making me seriously consider abandoning collaboration altogether. Which I really don't want to do. :-( So WTH?? Am I just one of those people no one can write with?
  9. Grand Oak Tree

    Not many words but it fills my new song and I'd like to keep it minimal and to the point. Question: "dwell ON or IN the past", it seem to work either way? Cheers, Geir Grand Oak Tree GER(c)2017 I have no plans for tomorrow and I don't dwell on the past I try to live in the moment, life is moving too fast I trust no so-called leaders, I seek no higher ground But I believe in the people and the world turning 'round I've found my spot in the shade, under a Grand Oak Tree It's been there for many years and it will outlive you and me You think you know all the answers and you know right from wrong Too shame you're such a fool, too shame you're in my song I've found my spot in the shade, under a Grand Oak Tree It's been there for many years and it will outlive you and me

  12. The Storm

    So, another love story. Please have a read and tell me what you think of it. Also look at the word 'goof', does it make sense to you? To me goof is something dark .. a chill or something abstract.. Cheers, Geir The Storm GER(c)2017 She said she loved me I loved her too But love became hate out of the blue She sometimes broke things records and stuff I said I hated her just as much A touch on my shoulder a kiss on my neck I tried to stay cool but I was a wreck Oh love We started out so nice like lovers do A roof and a bed and a blind cat called Lou Living on white bread and the cheapest wine It's hard to believe but we made it just fine Then came the storm and ripped off the roof Blew out delusions and let in the truth Oh love Goodbye 'miss trouble' we have come to an end The wind won't blow our way Even the blind cat found a new trace We both knew he wouldn't stay

Chorus: I was lucky in love and I found a great wife She’s the one that I want for the rest of my life But I still have my past and that one special girl And sometimes out of nowhere I still think of her Yes, I still have my past and that one special girl And sometimes out of nowhere I still think of her

  17. these are our memories

    J Morrison (C) December 2016 was just pondering if I could write something . with well I don't know but this is what came out - well it was what came out but it needed a better write added a proper chorus may not work could be to long now ? I cant give you forever there's only here and now but if we stick together we'll make it somehow 'cause time's not elastic but we can stretch it out do something fantastic that's what life's about these are only dreams so why don't we turn all these dreams into memories let's you and me make some memories running for the shelter down in central park moving close together when i'ts getting in dark memories to be made that we won't forget splash in a fountain getting our shoes wet these are only dreams so why don't we turn all these dreams into memories let's you and me make some memories life's a ticking clock slowly winding down one day it will stop all we have is now so why don't we make some memories these were only dreams but then you and me turned those dreams into memories you and me made some memories
  18. Vice

    These are some funk/rnb/fusion lyrics I wrote. I'd be thankful for any critique (tear me apart!). English is not my native language and it probably shows in my lyrics. I want to improve that. (A) He knows he has a habit But he doesn't care He slings enough product And has the money to share He never sleeps himself, Doesn't mind to pay He makes it rain in the club And snow in LA (B) He's a vice kinda guy Always up for a good time Yeah, a vice kinda guy And everything's just fine He's a vice kind of guy Can't say no to an invite He's a vice kind of guy And everything's alright (C) But when the sun rises And the DJ goes home When his friends scatter Leaving him all alone When there is nothing to take And no one to call These thoughts start rolling in He isn't happy at all (Instrumental riff) (A) She loves her body And those of others So why not use what go gave her To make some copper Never has to go home alone As long as she's in the mood And has party favours at hand To forget if she's not She loves her body And those of others Why not make some money under the covers Never has to go home alone As long as she’s willing Takes party favors if not Her guy takes care of the billing (B) She's a vice kinda girl Always up for a good time Yeah, a vice kinda girl And everything's just fine She's a vice kind of girl Can't say no to an invite She's a vice kind of girl And everything's alright (C) But when the sun rises And the DJ goes home When her friends scatter Leaving her all alone When there is nothing to take And no one to call These thoughts start rolling in She isn't happy at all (Instrumental riff)
  19. The Cheese Song

    Hi, all, No, this is not a serious song...just something to make you laugh. (Might go best with a big glass of wine!) The Cheese Song When you’re standing in the kitchen And your appetite is itchin’ For something more than leftover Chinese You could have a piece of jerky Or a slice of roasted turkey But you know that what you really want is Cheese You can slice it, you can grate it You don’t have to complicate it It’s a balm for all the troubles of the day Whether Swiss or Brie or Cheddar Cheese makes everything much better Especially when you add some Chardonnay Cheese Makes me weak in the knees You don’t need advanced degrees To know the ecstasy of Cheese Those nights when you’re a single And your preference is to mingle You don’t need a group of friends to feel at ease Grab some Parm and Gorgonzola Pepper Jack and Cambozola And embrace the camaraderie of cheese There is a minor downside They say cheese affects the backside The heart and maybe arteries to boot But the joys of cheese are multiple So I decline on principle To settle for a low-fat substitute Cheese Makes me weak in the knees You don’t need advanced degrees To know the ecstasy of Cheese Cheese comes in such varieties You can face social anxieties But I say “Be Yourself,” and here’s the proof: After many-a Margarita I chose to serve Velveeta And my status as a host went through the roof There’s burrata, mozzarella, Emmentaler, appenzeller You don’t have to master what the difference is But if you seek a designation That reflects your education Study hard and earn the title of Cheese Whiz Cheese Makes me weak in the knees You don’t need advanced degrees To know the ecstasy of Cheese © Patty Lakamp 2016

  21. When it comes to you

    Ive changed the chorus and line 2 in verse 1; When it comes to you V. As it is it isn’t anymore What it was we had i wasn't sure But i know it shook me to the core And i liked it V. As it is it isn’t either way What it was i couldn’t really say Love was just a game we used to play And i liked it CH. When it comes to you - i can't get enough Nothing i won't do - just to feel your touch When it comes to you - even when you're gone All i ever do - is keep hanging on When it comes to you V. As it is it isn’t anymore What it was I’ve never had before You were always knocking on my door And i liked it V. As it is it isn’t either way What it was could be again some day You were always leading me astray And i liked it CH. When it comes to you - i can't get enough Nothing i won't do - just to feel your touch When it comes to you - even when you're gone All i ever do - is keep hanging on When it comes to you BR. Every other time - i said this time will be better Every other time - it was now or it was never V. When it comes to you - i can't get enough Nothing i won't do - just to feel your touch When it comes to you - even when you're gone All i ever do - is keep hanging on When it comes to you

    Hey again, thank you for your critique. Got to Got to, got to get right, Got to, got to get right, Got to get to you, To help me pull through, Breath in, to block it all out, Breath in, to end this long drought, Do not to freak out, Breathe in and shout, Yeah, Drink this, to drown in the night, One more to, vanish your doubt, Out comes the clues, I don’t remember those shoes, Yeah, Got to, got to get right, Got to, got to get right, Got to get to you, To help me pull through,
  23. heavy load

    A quick morning write. Heavy load Father time,has put his grip on me My regrets, they now ride the shotgun seat Search for words,to ease your lonely pain Days fly by , gets harder to explain It's a heavy load It's a heavy load My back is sore, I'm all alone It's a heavy load A heavy load In my reflection , it's you I've always seen Hard to believe,it's been eighteen years. It's you I long to hold Carry my guilt, that are now ball and chained Realize, there's a truth to all my shame It's a heavy load It's a heavy load My back is sore, I'm all alone It's a heavy load A heavy load I felt your tears, everytime I didn't show Your not to blame small's, you should know if I was the man I should've been i wouldn't be thinking these thoughts again It's a heavy load My back is sore, I'm all alone It's a heavy load A heavy load Father time, has put his grip on me My regrets, they now ride the shotgun seat It's a heavy load
  24. You look good today.

    Hello, Again I haven't posted for a long while, life gets busy. These lyrics are about how someone can have a hold over you that they can control how you feel. I understand it needs some tweaks but your input would be greatly appreciated, thanks ''You Look Good Today'' Today I pray that you will be nice, I pray that you will be kind. You hold all the cards, If your hand is fine, then i'm fine. I'll dip my toe in the water, If its cold then I'll go. When the grey skies come, You'll be sure I know. Then I feel so low, So low I could give up. You say to me: You look good today I bloody love this beautiful calm You look good today. Please be nice all the time. You look good today. Suddenly the beams they shine. You look good today. Now you got me, With your sideways look, I feel so damn not good. I need you to cradle me Like a child, I crave you. But you flipped the penny, It landed on its head. I'm living on a fifty-fifty. And you, you make my bed. Then I feel so low, So low I could give up. You say to me: You look good today I bloody love this beautiful calm You look good today. Please be nice all the time. You look good today. Suddenly the beams they shine. You look good today. When the wind changes, one day i'll go. When the bruises fade, then i'll go. When I feel strong enough, but not right now. Your grip is too tight.
  25. World Going Wrong

    Here are my lyrics for a slow and dark stoner rock song. Please let me know what you think of it. World Going Wrong GER(c)2017 It's us or them, he spit the words out of his mouth, it will spread like a disease And with the good Lord by our side we'll bring 'em down, down, to their knees So here we are, all over again, man fighting man, man fighting man Ten thousand soldiers out marching the streets, shut your windows, shut your door The taste of blood is like heroin, give me more, give me more, give me more So here we are, all over again, man fighting man, man fighting man World going wrong, world going wrong, raise your flag cause world going wrong World going wrong, world going wrong, raise your flag cause world going wrong
