  2. there's a lot of stuff I've written in the past I think is worth refining.. I always liked this chorus idea. A friends daughter is an aspiring performer looking for material so there could be a recording with any luck soon! The original was posted 11/8/14 ill post it below.. Verse; I have to say, some things have changed Since you’ve been gone, i don’t belong I have to say, i feel estranged Although i prayed, and i stayed strong While i remain, you’re moving on I have to say, i’m disengaged chorus; Bitter pill so hard to swallow Couldn’t save me from my sorrow Couldn’t fight the fear i’m facing Couldn’t keep my heart from breaking Bitter pill so hard to swallow Couldn’t save me from tomorrow Verse; I have to say, blue skies are grey The days grow old and nights are cold I have to say, in disarray I’m not the same, as i’ve been told And it’s a shame i lost my soul I have to say, i’m not okay Chorus; Bitter pill so hard to swallow Couldn’t save me from my sorrow Couldn’t fight the fear i’m facing Couldn’t keep my heart from breaking Bitter pill so hard to swallow Couldn’t save me from tomorrow Bridge; Without one good reason why Without one last kiss goodbye How am i supposed to feel When the truth becomes a lie Chorus; (repeat)
  3. Hi, everyone. I posted my original lyrics before: And below are the slightly revised lyrics: They say that when you can't sleep at night it's because you're on someone else's mind. This was the one myth I wanted to believe when awake at night and far from sleep. This is my last dream of you. I'm tired of all my waking nights and the burn of my closing eyes. This is my last dream of you. I people watched with my eyes closed. If you felt my stare, I didn't mean to encroach upon your figment-ary figure stating there alone. I just wanted some way to bring you home. This is my last dream of you. I'm tired of all my waking nights and the burn of my closing eyes. This is my last dream of you. I know the things I tell myself are almost never true, but This is my last dream of you. I'm tired of all my waking nights and the burn of my closing eyes. This is my last dream of you. I just wanted to get new eyes on this rewrite. Better? Worse? Any suggestions for improvement
  4. Hi: Sometimes years after I've "finished," and "released" a song on CD, I see ways to make the song better. When I perform the song live now, I do it with the improvements. Just because the song's been recorded does that mean the recorded version is "it?" After all, none of my songs are on the charts. It's not like Paul McCartney changing parts of "Yesterday." But still some people in the audience notice and ask "why did you change it?" Is it my obligation to keep a song the way people know it even if I can make it better? Tamara
  5. Hey y'all This is something I wrote a while back. Was deemed corny but had a fun melody that played with it. Kinda been kicking in back of my head, woke this morning with it playing so figured I'd see where it went. I don't really like questions in a chorus but think it works sorta? Anyway I warned ya it's a bit corny Rock on !! Ever lay in bed all day and dream? Of the coming times and what they mean Well that's all I Ever seem to do Can't get my mind off loving you Have nothing in my pockets but spare Time, I'll spend every minute for you to be mine I'll ride the rays of sun burst colored skys lasso the moon and all it's light I'll grab the clouds as their drifting by What will it take for you to be mine? I'll find us a rainbow with all it's gold harness the stars to guide you home Have nothing in my pockets but spare Time I'll spend every minute for you to be mine Bridge Heard some say with enough love can be bought Or loves a noose with a dead man's knot Some even say love never stays true A simple game for blind fools (just a game for blind simple fools) With all of these I disagree Loves an emotion wild and free Loves perfect in an imperfect world Takes some work and jumping over hurdles Have nothing in my pockets but spare time I'll spend every minute for you to be mine I'll ride the rays of sun burst colored skys lasso the moon and all it's light I'll grab the clouds as their drifting by What will it take for you to be mine? I'll find us a rainbow with all it's gold harness the stars to guide you home Have nothing in my pockets but spare Time I'll spend every minute for you to be mine Ever lay in bed all day and dream? Of the coming times and what they mean Well that's all I Ever seem to do Can't get my mind off loving you Have nothing in my pockets but spare time What will it take for you to be mine? First write Ever lay in bed all day and dream? Of the coming days and what they mean Well that's all I Ever seem to do Can't get my mind off loving you I'll spend every minute for you to be mine Have nothing in my pockets but spare Time, I'll ride the rays of sun burst colored skys lasso the moon and all it's light I'll grab the clouds as their drifting by What will it take for you to be mine? I'll find us a rainbow with all it's gold harness the stars to guide you home What will it take for you to be mine Have nothing in my pockets but spare Tim I'd ride the rays of sun burst colored skys lasso the moon and all it's light I'll grab the clouds as their drifting by What will it take to make you mine? I'd find us a rainbow and all it's gold harness the stars to guide you home Have nothing in my pockets but spare Time We been together for a what now Covered miles of hollowed ground There's not a thing I would change Guess I'm asking if you'd take my name Have nothing in my pockets but spare Time I'll spend every minute to make you mine. What you see is what you get Know I'm not perfect but my love is What you see is what you get know I'm not perfect but my love is Have nothing in my pockets but spare Time I'll spend every minute to make you mine I'dride the rays of a sun burst sky lasso the moon and all it's light grab the clouds as there drifting by What will it take to make you mine? I'd find a rainbow and all it's gold harness the stars to guide you home Have nothing in my pockets but Time
  6. Ok, Ive been working this for a year or so off and on , more off , but I keep coming back to it, I have had as many melodies for this also , tho they have been very close in sound, it is more of a feel when I put the melody to this , which , this started as a melody , and for me that is uncommon , most times a lyric or phrase comes first then I put a real melody to it, anyway , this is it , done with it and have a somewhat melody , that needs a tweak or two , cause I changed a few lines .any way , I've said it before but this time mean it , this is the last rewrite inless someone hits something I and others have missed, rock on !! Like a kid again Intro thinking back to the very first time, when I felt a funny feeling inside everything changed had a different meaning pinching myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming Pre chorus Feel like this because of you Those things you say and those things you do chorus remember when we made angels in the snow staying up late to see if the sun would show Playing out the summers, till the lights came on Singing and dancing,to them big rock songs like a kid again Yea yea yea like a kid again verse should I try to hold her hand and get a kiss before we go damn, my heart is pounding as if you didn't know I feel like this because of you the things you say and do chorus remember when we made angels in the snow staying up late, to see if the sun would show Playing out the summers, till the lights came on Singing and dancing, to them big rock songs like a kid again Yea yea yea like a kid again bridge (newest) Like kids buring treasures in thier backyard Where those special moments Are never far from thier hearts... Moments forever treasured ( new bridge) Moments forever cherished Like treasures buried in your backyard But know that with tomorrow Today's another memory Like a kid again chorus remember when we made angels in the snow staying up late to see if the sun would show Playing out the summers, till the lights came on Singing and dancing, to them big rock songs like a kid again Yea yea yea like a kid again outro thinking back to the very first time when I felt a funny feeling inside.... like a kid again
  7. Hi Guys This is a lyric from a challenge a couple of months ago that I have been visiting back and forth from time to time. The challenge was for "Deep Love" and with the help of a few members of the group I have gotten this far with the lyric and wondered what you thought? So thanks to Timbre, JH, Hobo for your ideas. There are a couple of areas I am still thinking about, still unsure about? Heres the link to the challenge And heres my Lyric and if nothing else I hope you enjoy the read. the split line in the intro is meant as a pause and the "do" is extended in the previous line. Les You Alone © Leslie Service 2016 Intro I never saw what hit me But I could hear the sirens wail I heard them say-there's nothing more they can do Now only time will tell V Holding my hand I felt your love I prayed you could feel mine too Your gentle kiss Gave me hope Though I couldn’t show you Pc I sensed you here everyday and night You gave me the strength to fight C It was you- you alone that saved me It was you- you alone that gave me The will to survive You kept me alive I never want to leave - you alone V When your tears Touched my cheek I cried deep down inside with you Your soothing voice Gave me peace Though I had no way to tell you Pc I sensed you here everyday and night You gave me the strength to fight C It was you- you alone that saved me It was you- you alone that gave me The will to survive You kept me alive I never want to leave - you alone B Our lives changed in the blink of an eye The last thing I saw was a tumbling crimson sky Now I see you Pc I sensed you here everyday and night You gave me the strength to fight C It was you- you alone that saved me It was you- you alone that gave me The will to survive You kept me alive I never want to leave - you alone...repeat to fade?
  8. Hi Guys This one was one of those driving to work lyrics that started from thinking of being on a train and meeting someone I knew! don't ask where that came from as I don't Know!!!! I have other lines for verse and chorus and originally the verse was split into 2 after 4 lines but went with what I have posted, any thoughts on that? I was going to include the name in the title but left it out so as not to reveal straight off any thoughts again? Also I was toying with a (3rd) verse if I split the 1st and say something like I saw him a bar singing something along those lines? I hear it upbeat and catchy sort of melody and if I can possibly play something I will post. It is only a couple of days old so well up for change, it just bugged me so I carried it on. I hope you enjoy the read Les Made a slight edit on the st line of the verse. I Think I Saw? ©Les Service January 2016 All rights reserved V On a East bound train to Memphis I met a man I thought I knew There was something about his voice Jet-black hair and blue suede shoes He was humming a familiar tune As the train chattered down the track I kept thinking "am I dreaming" or Could he be? Could he be? Could the King be back? C I think I saw Elvis I think I saw the King on the train I think I saw Elvis I think the King lives again I think I saw Elvis I know it sounds insane But, I think I saw the King On the train B Some people still believe That he didn’t leave I know it's hard to conceive But C I think I saw Elvis I think I saw the King on the train I think I saw Elvis I think the King lives again I think I saw Elvis I know it sounds so insane But, I think I saw the King On the train Outro to fade I think I saw Elvis I think I saw the King On the train

  10. J Morrison ( C ) 2014 this was only going to be a short poem but took on a life of its own/ I posted this before but have changed some of It thank you everyone that replied first time round john it could have been yesterday or the day before maybe it was last week I'm not really sure time you see is an illusion like some magicians trick you imagine there is plenty but there's far less than we think so take the time to make the time before it's gone one day you are crawling and bumping into things the next you're kissing girls/boys ( in case a lady wants to sing it ) then buying wedding rings but of course some years have passed by in between come and gone to soon as if they're only dreams so take the time to make the time before it's gone do you worry about hours then fret about the days while not really noticing as the years slip away once the time is gone it can't come round again so make every second count because they can't be regained so take the time to make the time before it's gone ( slow) you see time is not elastic it will not be stretched so don't waste the seconds for they are all you get did you take some time to make some time because a time will come when times all gone
  11. j.morrison20 jan 2013 from a couple of years ago the critiques are mostly good but they said need to have more emotion did not have the know how back then maybe still don't . the old one is still here somewhere I cry as preacher stands to sing your praise with memories of bygone days you were here i was blessed with joy, friendship and happiness now your gone an emptiness has settled in my heart and i cry the music plays the coffin slides I'm not ready for goodbye on my knees asking lord give us please five minutes more can I let go then I am not so sure just how do i start and i cry you were the one who shared my life mother ,lover friend and wife we were fifty years side by side from the day you were my bride this will not our a last goodbye sweetheart and i cry so until we meet again because this is not the end I'll see you on the other side waiting with arms open wide then together you and i will never be apart then I'll smile but for now I cry I' cry
  12. been on the road for the last 9 months, this was in one of the many books and scraps of paper i write on , didnt remember it but thought it might be nice with music , a wee bit sad in a sense but true , any and all crits welcome rock on !! There's a pain that comes When she calls your name For you know it won't be long Till she walks away the sun kisses them big blue skies goodbye you're left standing there praying for one more last time you fight with your thoughts and of what friends say awkwardly count the costs with bills crumpled and frayed mind wanders down a road where the past never lives all debts are paid,nothings owed both night and day forgives the sun kisses them big blue skies goodbye you're left standing there praying for one more last time there comes a time in everyone's life when giving up is just whats right the sun kisses them big blue skies goodbye you're left standing there praying for one more last time There's a pain that comes When she calls your name For you know it won't be long Till she walks away the sun kisses them big blue skies goodbye you're left standing there praying for one more last time one more last time
  13. How quickly forever ends Don’t remember where she was born Told me how she was raised And how she had to find shelter from all the storms that came. Sitting out there on the old piers edge We talked for hours, quickly became friends When she looked me in the eyes, she said I could do this forever and ever Funny how quickly forever ends Said forever we'd be friends Oh how quickly forever ends It was a chilly Flagler winter We stood on those windswept sands and as I began to shiver She pulled me closely, so tender As she whispered in my ear I will love you forever and ever Now I hear those words Again and again and again and again Funny how quickly forever ends said you'd love me forever forever is our love you said Oh how quickly forever ends I've walked those wind swept sands stood at the end of that old pier my heart will never understand Why my soul hopes you'll appear Funny how quickly, forever ends Said you'd love me forever Oh how quickly forever ends oh, how quickly forever ends
  14. this is a rewrite , after some crits, decided to do a rewrite , so.... both barrels and scalps welcome REWRITE Standing on the corner of change Trying to catch a ride Wind's in my face Sun's in my eyes Standing on the corner of change trying to catch a ride Left the place Right outside your mind The landscapes a mess of barbed wire and thorns of weeds and broken dreams overgrown and dry As I watch a train rolling by I get lost in the moment the with shaking ground and squealing brakes I suddenly wake to a new reality in me of the trust you've broken Standing on the corner of change Trying to catch a ride Wind's in my face Sun's in my eyes Standing on the corner of change trying to catch a ride through the gullies and ravines a path I've known well when the rains come it gets tricky to navigate this path becomes my new wrath like the words and lies you tell out of breath and needing a rest in front of the town theater I see "Armageddon two" is coming soon like in the sequel I know I can escape you now my paths much clearer Standing on the corner of change Trying to catch a ride Wind's in my face Sun's in my eyes Standing on the corner of change trying to catch a ride How many times have I gone this way? Same ol' ***- different day It's border line insane doing the same day after day And still I complain Standing on the corner of change Trying to catch a ride Wind's in my face Sun's in my eyes Standing on the corner of change trying to catch a ride
  15. hey all, been looking at some of my older stuff , for lack of new stuff, got issues with the 3rd verse and bridge , doing a rewrite but ,..... I like the song as a whole ,have a track(just a 1+1 very rough!! just one take after I wrote the lyric ,you can hear how I stumble after that 3rd verse , and I should of ,lol that verse I should of caught from jump ) I will post the track later , but first wanting a wee bit of feed back, both barrels ya'll rock on !! found the door to the world outside got need to find the courage one foot at a time feel the switch to turn on the light just need to find the strength one foot at a time I'm a mess and I don't know why every time i laugh i start to cry everything seems ,so turned around think I'm heading up,I'm falling down I'm a mess and i don't know why i reach out I I reached out but it's like i'm blind (but couldn't save her life)but to late I arrived/ your not there /it's such a crime I lost my best friend I so I must carry on so now I have to live , life with out you is one foot at a time one foot at a time try to breath , but this airs not mine no matter how I try it's one foot at a time I'm a mess and I don't know why every time i laugh i start to cry everything seems ,so turned around think I'm heading up,I'm falling down I'm a mess and i don't know why i know tomorrow's. I'm left with the memories not as bad as it seems of a life I loved I'm feeling so alone and now I'm wondering even my shadow it screams how I will carry on I'm a mess and I don't know why every time i laugh i start to cry everything seems ,so turned around think I'm heading up,I'm falling down I'm a mess and i don't know why in the track I redid the bridge on the fly ,maybe I shouldn't of ?? I know I shouldn't of lol . cant play or sing at this time( had a stroke on stage in Ireland) so .... in new territory in doing rewrites on tracks I've already done , had this for about a year but only shared it with one person , the 3rd verse was what started the whole write , someone dear to me took their life and it got me started to write and most of all play again!!, I didn't even pick up my guitar for many years , but after her death it opened the flood gates so to speak , and this is just another phase of dealing with the whole thing , guess that's why i'm opening it up again , to firstly get closure on the song as a whole and maybe it will get me off my ass to learn other ways to express , and maybe one day write a lyric i'm truly happy with , make sense ???lol there was no real message to the song other then feeling lost and alone , and knew I had to take things "one foot at a time " https://soundcloud.com/tom-collins-12/imamess1

  18. going through some older stuff seen this , forgotten I even wrote it, but when I read it the melody came right back, did a few very minor change to it, never saved it to my computer so , for me was a nice find ,and going to put it on the to do list when I get back ! any and all crits welcome rock on How quickly forever ends Funny how you meet someone And it just seems to click Don’t remember where she was born Told me how she was raised That she had to find shelter from all the storms that came. We talked for hours quickly became friends Sitting out there on the old piers edge When she looked me in the eyes, and said I could do this forever and ever Again and again, and again and again Funny how quickly, forever ends She’ll love me forever she said How quickly forever ends Oh how quickly forever ends It was a chilly Flagler winter I stood on the windswept sand She pulled me closely, so tender Then whispered in my ear I will love you forever and ever Now I hear those words Again and again and again and again Funny how quickly, forever ends She’ll love me forever she said How quickly forever ends Oh how quickly forever ends She kept her heart wrapped in satin Every once in awhile She’d let you play Only to rewrap it…. and gently take it away Again and again and again and again Funny how quickly, forever ends She’ll love me forever she said How quickly forever ends Oh how quickly forever ends
  19. ****I can’t wait ***** say you don’t need me But I hear you cry alone at night as you cry alone at night say you’re just fine I can hear the loneliness ,eat you alive as loneliness eats you alive Don’t you see our tears dripping down the hands of time it takes two for this love affair to survive I can’t wait While you find the time to breathe I can’t wait While you find out what you need I can’t wait While you find your love for me baby I love you but.. I can’t wait No I just can’t wait I sit here play with pictures in my head as I wonder If there’s even a place to begin how this all began Cause I’m afraid The answers not going to be we wont find what we need What we need Seems to lye somewhere beneath This love we built to rebuild all our hopes and dreams I just can’t wait To give this love time to breathe I can’t wait For you to find what you need I can’t wait For you to fall back in love with me No I can’t wait I can’t wait While you find the time to breathe I can’t wait While you find out what you need I can’t wait While you find your love for me baby I love you but I can’t wait No I just can’t wait say you’re just fine I can hear the loneliness ,eat you alive as loneliness eats you alive Don’t you see our tears dripping down the hands of time it takes two for a love affair to survive I just can’t wait To give this love time to breathe I can’t wait For you to find what you need I can’t wait For you to fall back in love with me No I can’t wait baby I can’t wait While you find the time to breathe I can’t wait While you find out what you need I can’t wait While you find your love for me I can’t wait No I just can’t wait

Getting lost inside my mind been going on for some time hate facing that world outside without you here by my side Swear ,I can still see your face Like it was just yesterday chorus where do the lonely souls go? When the winds blowing in the cold to find shelter to call their own before their journey home where do the lonely souls go? Seem to of lost track of time still see the foot prints, you left behind their heading to a better place over there, just out of sight Swear, I can still see your face Like it was just yesterday chorus where do the lonely souls go? When the winds blowing in the cold to find shelter to call their own before their journey home where do the lonely souls go? bridge have no direction no one to dance with(now I dance alone to the sound of a summer breeze all alone now,it’s just me(now I dance alone chorus where do the lonely souls go? when the winds blowing in the cold to find shelter to call their own before their journey home where do the lonely souls go? Swear, I can still see your face Like it was just yesterday chorus where do the lonely souls go? When the winds blowing in the cold to find shelter to call their own before their journey home where do the lonely souls go?
