 Written with The Doors in mind:

 

Solitary Mind                                                      David Ritchie

    Walking this road        talking to the sun

    Between the lines      secrets on the run

    I’m better off         if words don’t slide

    Thru the cracks      of a solitary mind.

 

   This road I’ve taken      many times

    I need to see      if I can find

    That busy door     that’ll let me through

    Not be left behind...a solitary mind

 

CHORUS:

   Born in shadow  I fed on light

   Descendant of darkness  I move to the light

   Dance of wildness,  dance divine

   The dance I dance, of a solitary mind.

 

    Now let us go      and do this thing

    This thing that life,    to us shall bring

    Dance of heaven,   dance of farewell

    The dance that mortals   dance so well

 

    Now the sun        rises new

    I return to shadows       to wait for you

    To return to the world       without light

    For darkness to come     at the edge of night
 

CHORUS:

   Born in shadow     I fed on light

   Descendant of darkness I move to the light

   Dance of wildness,         dance divine

   The dance I dance,       of a solitary mind.             repeat fade out

I like this, though hard to read the way you have it set up.

I like your lyrics, although the way you've formatted them made them hard to read. Well done!

David,

 

yes a bit hard to read thru...  The first two verse are good but need a bit of tweaking... not to sure what this is all about... you're style fits the Jim Morrison genre... and I can see the comparison... so if you write in this style and perform it yourself then that's fine but I couldn't see others relating to it
