these are the lyrics to a song i written back in 2001 - the track is on our website www.heavenstereo.net (http://www.heavenstereo.net)



The sky, It looked so blue this morning
So clear, that I tried to swim
But Iíll need some love to help me
And sheís not the parachute I think she is
<?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
The ground it looked so grey this morning
So dirty, that I tried to wash
But I still need some love to help me
Because she is not the parachute I think she is

Last night you held me in a way that let me fall
But never hit the ground.
And as your eyes shine blue from black and white photographs
I realise, I havenít found you yet
Sheís not the parachute I think she is.
And Iím still heading, heading for the ground

The sky will still be blue tomorrow
So clear that Iíll try to swim
And Iíll still need some love to help me
Because sheís not the parachute I think she is

And when I find her Iíll forget you
And weíll dive into the stars
Theyíll say I hate to say that I told you so
But sheís not the Parachute you think she is

the lyrics are pretty self explanatory i feel.

This is song i started to write about my little sis. It's a soppy one.


Like a flower I watch you beauty grow,
By each day,
Growing more amd more and more.


And when I cry, cry,cry,
It's you that wipe my tears....away.


I haven't finished it yet. At the moment i'm at the stage where I can't finish a song. I write lots of beginnings but no endings.


Another song i started did finish it but can't remember the ending.


Don't look in my eyes,
The hurt's still strong.
You walked out and left me dry,
So much for a sweet goodbye.
You left your coffee stain on the kitchen floor,
As a souvenir and made my tears roll.


You've built your walls now,
I can't tear them down.
Let me in through the crack,
Back inside the warm.
But the walls growing bigger,
Keeping me out alone in the cold.

Another song is about losing someone to death but then being spritually meeting them again and wanting them back here with you.


Embrace.


All alone in a place,
No-one there to wipe your face,
The tears roll down,
Through the walls.
Memories whisp down cold stairs,
Filling gaps in lost prayers,
Running from the cold.


Years fly my each day,
Taking time to lose their way,
In a land of memories gone.


Dreams shattered to pieces,
Floating along in a daze,
Screams drifting by,
In the air.
Cries from a child,
Echo in the wind,
Shiver through the leaves
To speak.


I feel like air,
Drifting away.
Hold me there,
Take my hand with you
Lead me the way.
Show me the dreams,
That I long to see,
Long to grasp.


Float like a leaf in the sky
Falling to ground.
Falling to ground with me.

Hey every1 its Lynchpin here (formerly fondusquirrell)! Anywayz, here arethelyrics for my own song "Monsters"


Monsters.


Verse 1


Take heed of how you're walking home,


There's Monsters everywhere.


And I'm not sure how to fight back.


It's not easy being this scared.


Yourwisdom and your crosses,


They won't do you much good.


Your brain is now wide open,


just likeyou knew it would


Chorus 1


See what I'm tryin to do in vain,


Is fighting to explain,


The way I feel (the way young lovers do).


We've crossed the river, now for the sea,


Dealt with you, but not with me.


Coz you hate love and I-


Hate Monsters too.


Verse 2


Coz you and I both know, that Monsters can't be taught,


That love is very fragile, but it cannot be bought.


And hope and celebration vanish into space


When the darkness closes in, and the Monster rears his face.


And freedom? Freedom?Just a figment of imagination


And the hardest part of all this.. is that realisation.


Chorus 2


And as I see you now with him, your face locked in a grin,


Feeling all the things young lovers do


And now the river and the sea, are both distant memories


Coz you're in love and I-


See you now with him, your face locked in a grin,


The Monster's got his claws back into you.


And now the river and thesea, are just clouded memories,


Coz you're in love and I-


Hate Monsters too.

hey guys, this one is called Feast: you can listen to it at www.adamwhiting.net (http://www.adamwhiting.net)if you like. I appreciate any feedaback.


thanks,
Adam


How do I keep my dignity
After I've fallen at your feet?
How do I follow and act like him,
Should I bleed to feed the deep?
I confess, it was me
Who felt the need to leave you in a heap.
I didn't come for my salvation,
I only came for the feast.


You keep your dreams on the highest shelf,
As far as you can from yourself.
Out of sight, you say I am out of my mind.
But you forgot how that felt.
And when you left me behind you,
Did you turn to watch me fall?
You say I was your fool,
To think you needed me at all.


And my mind makes ghosts from the breeze.
If I run they start to chase me.
If I turn to you they'll take you back down.
Until you release me, release me, release me.


You say my madness amuses you,
That I haven't been outside in three days.
You say I dropped your ball,
And just let it roll away.
And I know it doesn't surprise you,
You've known from the start,
There's so much of me confined in you,
And so much of you in the poem.


You can't bring it up,
What you're hiding from me,
You're keeping me hooked,
By depriving me.
My tantrum face is turning blue,
But you're calling my bluff.
And I keep asking for more,
When I've had more than enough.


And my mind makes ghosts from the breeze.
If I run they start to chase me.
If I turn to you they'll take you back down.
Until you release me, release me, release me.

Sold


I've been away
I've seen the sun at dawn, on the ocean
I've seen the moon
look like a plate so high, in a cloudless sky
I've tasted things
straight from your dreams so sweet
I've seen a face to break your heart in two, cause it ain't lovin' you


and I have been right to the snow, it don't seem so white no
and I have been right to the sun, it don't seem so bright


but I am sold
on this feeling inside my heart
I am sold
on being inside your arms

am I not your rock
am I not your roll
am I not your soul


I've cried out
on a mountain and heard my reply
I've dived down
into the ocean so deep, that there is no light
I've heard a song
that raised the goosebumps on my neck
I've done things
I've had dreams, so many dreams


and I have been right to the snow, it don't seem so white no
and I have been right to the sun, it don't seem so bright


but I am sold
on this feeling inside my heart
I am sold
on being inside your arms


You can listen to it at www.justinthorne.com (http://www.justinthorne.com)'Sold' won track of the day at Garageband.com earlier this year...

i wrote this song a while back, i was a song i wrote as i got into my friends head, he was enfatuated by this small town girl and wanted to show her his dreams and how big the world is, and he wanted to take her to new york...the guy had plans. so i wrote idonyc... I Dream Of New York City...
You used to have stars in your eyes
It hurts me to see them fade out
But they sparkled tonight
As we dreamed of <?:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:City><st1:place>New York City</st1:place></st1:City>
And then just for one moment
We were not even here at all.
<?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
From the small town rain in April
Through to <st1:place>Brooklyn</st1:place> in the Fall
Weíll leave this town,
Thatís holding down

With wings on which we flew so high
And I
Wanna take you to <st1:City><st1:place>New York City</st1:place></st1:City> were weíll cry
And those we left behind will wonder why

Not that weíre torn in two
Just we relate to different situations
Bound only by our youth
Donít keep yourself from darkness
When the light shines on the truth

Keep faith in what you know
Even though your soul is burnt out
But it glimmered tonight
As we dreamed of <st1:City><st1:place>New York City</st1:place></st1:City>
And then just for one moment
We were not even here at all.

From the small town rain in April
Through to <st1:place>Brooklyn</st1:place> in the Fall
Weíll leave this town,
Thatís holding down

With wings on which we flew so high
And I
Wanna take you to <st1:City><st1:place>New York City</st1:place></st1:City> were weíll cry
And those we left behind will wonder why

Not that weíre torn in two
Just we relate to different situations
Bound only by our youth
Donít keep yourself from darkness
When the light shines on the truth

Do you wanna come?


The road I'm on is a funny one, do you wanna come?
you were there, in a lucid dream, or so it seems
I saw my future, without the lies, behind your eyes
the stars were there, shining bright in your vanilla hair

when we fall down, does hope fade or am I stronger
cause all I know without you here, I'm going under
do you wanna come?
do you wanna come?


The road I'm on will never do, without you
so come on, into my day, it will be OK
I saw my future without the lies, behind your eyes
the road I'm on is a funny one do you wanna come?

when we fall down, does hope fade or am I stronger
cause all I know without you here, I'm going under
do you wanna come?
do you wanna come?

Lonely Road


heard you on the phone last night
when you thought that I was sleeping
looking back I should'a known
how could I be so blind
seems we have a different view
on how things have been going
you can't say what makes you stay
your heart or your mind


it's been going wrong too long
can I change your mind
and should I even try
oh no, dunno how to mend your heart
hell I don't even know why


but it's a lonely road
lonely road
it's a lonely road
lonely road


so now I'm paranoid
I jump at every shadow
always watching what I say
scared to know the truth
I know I'm losing you
and I don't know how to change it
guess I thought we'd always be
together til the end


it's been going wrong too long
can I change your mind
and should I even try
oh no, dunno how to mend your heart
girlI don't even know why


but it's a lonely road
lonely road
it's a lonely road
lonely roadEdited by: Juzzza

wow, every song/poem i've read so far is brilliant so i think i'd continue reading for a few days, id like to put up one of my own just to get a reaction, cause friends will always tell u stuff is good even if its sh*t, so when i eventually putone up id like for ppl to say how they really thought about it, like well i really don't like that and that wud be grand. but i think thats also why im delaying, truth hurts sometimes :) k, so far i really like "sold" but everything is wicked. ttfn

"nowhere home"



she is paranoid

changing clocks by the hour

rummaging her eyes

for tears lost at sea



she begs the ground

to unencumber her raven hair

petrified of the past

and it's walls



all she chooses to see

are clouds of retribution

thick as ice on her

fingertips



all she really believes

is that her blood is made of glory

lost against herself

and time



though we are rust

and maybe dead stars

though we are bones

and disheveled dreams

i will still say,

"i promise i'll wait for you,

my broken stone."



midnight roads

accompany her ashen face

painting her heart

a crimson moon



she tears herself

grieving empty promises

a lotus buried in petals of silk



though we are rust

and we may be dead stars

though we are bones

and disheveled dreams

i will still say,

"i promise i'll wait for you,

my broken stone."



and i know this dawn will find you

lost again in fleeting memories

i'll bend my will to shake these

ties that have bound

you and i



because

though we are rust

and we may be dead stars

and though we are bones

disheveled dreams

i will still say,

"i promise i'll wait for you,

my broken stone.



i'll wait.

i'll wait."

I'm sitting in the station, waiting for the train to take me somewhere else
I'm sitting in my bedroom, picking up a new tune tryin'a sing something else
I kinda got to thinking of you and your great smile
and I remember, the yellow sand, the ocean spray
and I remember, you held my hand, the way we lay


the salty wind, the breaking morning, it feels like home, it feels like home
I miss your smile, the sense of fallin', it feels like home, it feels like home


I try to find some patience but all I have is this loneliness
I wonder if you're feeling just as helpless as me too
and are you in station waiting for a train to take you somewhere else


and I remember, the yellow sand, the ocean spray
and I remember, you held my hand, the way we lay


the salty wind, the breaking morning, it feels like home, it feels like home
I miss your smile, the sense of fallin', it feels like home, it feels like home

Don't we just make fools of ourselves


Once in a while something will ignite your fire and
leave you burning up just like a fool

once in a while you must do something for
something just for. just for you

So don't you worry about this boy
no don't you even worry
'cause I'll be fine on my own
and don't we just make fools of ourselves
and don't we just make fools of ourselves



once in a while something will ignite your soul
and leave you burning up just like a fool

once in a while you must do something for, but without trust we are, we are doomed

So don't you worry about this boy
no don't you even worry
'cause I'll be fine on my own
and don't we just make fools of ourselves
and don't we just make fools of ourselves

Curses

the urge is strong
it's calling me
it's whispered on the wind
it is strong
i'll never be the same again
I need to feel that wrath in me
pumping through my veins
oh to be free

so don't call me a fool
'cause I'm lost in you
lost in you, curses


how I miss her sweet embrace
the colour of her hair
I miss her kiss upon my
lips that miss the ghost of her
i'll never want like that again
I'm lost
oh to be free


so don't call me a fool
'cause I'm lost in you
lost in you, curses

----------------------------------
time just slips by these days
the people that i love carry on
i am not hurt by that
i am not scorned
it is just my time
it is just my turn


lost my love ten years ago
the match was lit too many times
i do feel lost without
i do feel cut in half
it was just his time


if my legs don't walk anymore
and if my mouth won't talk anymore
then these lips they'd say i love you
je t'adore
je t'adore


you will be missed on that day
when we take you to your place
tears will be shed
and our love will be there
but there's no other way
we will feel lost without
we will feel cut in half
we'll say it's your time
we'll say it's your turn


and your legs won't walk anymore
and your mouth won't talk anymore
but your lips will say i love you
je t'adore
je t'adore
ma grand-mere
ma grand-mere

i wrote this one about my grandmother...
the first half is written from her point of view
and thesecond halfis written from mine

Help me out, I want to be free
Help me out, I donít wanna be me,
Cos weíre all part of some weird sin,
We donít know what weíre living in,

Tie your shoes and donít grow your hair,
Stay in school and isnít it rude to stare,
You grow up and find the world has changed,
You try try to be somebody but not the one youíve made,

We donít need what weíve been told,
Our thoughts and minds can be bought or sold,
The TVís on but nobodies home,
Your try to be somebody but youíre not alone.

The pictures taken but your out of focus,
Youíre staring hard but trying not to notice,
You take it out, of the picture frame,
You try to tell yourself that you are not to blame.

We donít need what weíve been told,
Our thoughts and minds can be bought or sold,
The TVís on but nobodies home,
Your try to be somebody but youíre not alone.

That's really great, Jeweller!


How do you guys write the lyrics? Past experiences, made up situations, with music, without music, then set it to music? It'd be intresting to hear. I have my weird way of doing it, only problem is, I usually think of lyrics in the weirdest places, then forget them, lol!smileys/smiley36.gifAlso, do any of your lyrics you've posted have music?


I'm off to the beach today, sure there will be some inspiration there! If I write any thing worth posting, I might post them later...lol!smileys/smiley1.gif

eyeliner&amp;glitte,


All my lyrics have music, if you have Realplayer on your PC, you can listen to the song above, 'Curses' and a few other tunes at my Website... If you don't have Realplayer PM me your address and I will send you a copy of my CD and that goes for any eskimo friend... Including Damo and Lisa smileys/smiley36.gif


Ignore Cold water and The other side though, the host is rubbish and they take ages to download, all the other songs are hosted by Garageband though, which streams the tunes no problem.

Guy with a shovel on his head...

Not sure if you're running away
and you change your mind from day to day
about who you are and what you need
immersing yourself in travel and greed
fleeting from a place as you outstay your welcome
and chasing the high or the next time you come
but something it burns, and your guilt has a face
and the root of your problem is in the same place

It is what it is, there is no riddle, just remember who you are as you become who you want to be

facing your flaws, taking time for reflection
the best type of cure is always prevention
missing your input but glad that you're gone
I can't seem to handle your views for too long
when you wake up and feel something is missing
look out the window and thank God that you're living
and when you work hard at shaping your brand
remember you'll always have three biggest fans

It is what it is, there is no riddle, just remember who you are as you become who you want to be

If you ain't feeling it...


Glad you think I'm a good one
and it's nice to know friends agree
but I can tell you're still not sure
not one hundred percent it should be me

don't stay because you should do
or because of the things I do
being special or nice or a good one
in the end won't be enough for you

CHORUS

It doesn't matter that you should
it matters that you don't
this is a one-way street baby
and it's lonely here waiting for you

2

I can tell that you wish you did
but it's plain you ain't feeling it
maybe it's too soon and your heart
is still with someone else or just not with me

you can't pick whom how or when
but you can be honest with me
If it doesn't fit it's worse to force it
it builds my hopes up to crush them you see

CHORUS

It doesn't matter that you should
it matters that you don't
this is a one-way street baby
and it's lonely here waiting for you

you're sitting there, your face i cantsee


you've got your eyes closed, not looking at me


words wont come, gestures must do


so i lean over gently and kiss you on the cheek





you appear startled, like u dont know whose there


and you realise, u dont care


i could get angry, but whose to blame but myself?





all i can do is sit back and scratch


you look at me, as if, what the hells that


but from the brief bit of intimacy


it eases my mind to rerturn to normalacy





the strangeness of love, is eclipsed by the pain


moments of awkardness, again and again


and after settling down after fifty odd years


wondering was it just worth all those tears...


.....i dont know.





i wrote that last night so theres tinkering to be done with it, but just wondering what eskimos think of it

"nowhere home"

she is paranoid
changing clocks by the hour
rummaging her eyes
for tears lost at sea

she begs the ground
to unencumber her raven hair
petrified of the past
and it's walls

all she chooses to see
are clouds of retribution
thick as ice on her
fingertips

all she really believes
is that her blood is made of glory
lost against herself
and time

though we are rust
and maybe dead stars
though we are bones
and disheveled dreams
i will still say,
"i promise i'll wait for you,
my broken stone."

midnight roads
accompany her ashen face
painting her heart
a crimson moon

she tears herself
grieving empty promises
a lotus buried in petals of silk

though we are rust
and we may be dead stars
though we are bones
and disheveled dreams
i will still say,
"i promise i'll wait for you,
my broken stone."

and i know this dawn will find you
lost again in fleeting memories
i'll bend my will to shake these
ties that have bound
you and i

because
though we are rust
and we may be dead stars
and though we are bones
disheveled dreams
i will still say,
"i promise i'll wait for you,
my broken stone.

i'll wait.
i'll wait."

This is a song of mine/my band's. You can hear others at www.purevolume.com/goodbyetomorrow (http://www.purevolume.com/goodbyetomorrow)if you want. Sorry for the shameless advertising...





Tied By Miles
If I could, I would fix our wrists together
In such a fashion that God, Himself, couldn't tear us apart
But impossibility knows nothing of compromise
And hope can only take us so far


Tracing your outline in my sheets
Painting your face on my pillow
Faking going to sleep
So I can fake waking up to you

But my hands are tied by miles...

If I could, I would rest our cheeks together
So I could hear every word that escapes your mouth
And kisses could act as punctuation
And I would pray and wait for periods and exclamation points

Tracing your outline in my sheets
Painting your face on my pillow
Faking going to sleep
So I can fake waking up to you

My hands are tied...

Tracing your outline in my sheets
Painting your face on my pillow
Faking going to sleep
So I can fake waking up to you

But my hands are tied by miles...

My run


When I feel the hunger
you fill me up, you fill me up
when I feel I'm falling
you pick me up, you pick me up
and I win back the sun
and it's true what they say
and I've been blessed the whole of my life
when it's you and I know


I've had my run
I've had it all and seen it gone, gone, gone
I've had my run
I've had it all and seen it gone, gone, gone, gone


when you feel the thunder
I'll fill you up, I'll fill you up
when you feel you're under
I'll pick you up, I'll pick you up
and I win back the sun
and it's true what they say
and I've been blessed the whole of my life
when it's you and I know


I've had my run

i feel your pressence and all your essence


i feel the warmth that you provide


i ve seen you smile, i ve seen you cry


'cause everythig that i remember, is you{bis}


All the moments that we ve had


All the happy and the sad


That first kiss in the dark


The last goodbye in the car


'casue evething that i remember, is you{bis}


Now are you happy


or are you sad


friends and family


Now how's your life?


'cause everything the i remember, is you{bis}


This is what i used from a poem and made it intoa song in 2001.


is called "First Love"


Any questions about it feel free please i ll tell ya the story

Hi everyone, sorry it's a bit long but I'd love some feedback on it - Marc.


Old George has always known how to please the ladies
They’ve always been charmed by his amazing stories
But he stole them all from a strange man named Guy
That he killed when he threatened to reveal old George’s lies

All the teachers from the law school now gather around
They are looking for apt pupils all over my town
To digest all their lessons and to feed their hungry pride
And now all the kids are searching for safe places to hide

The policemen are nervous, they’re looking for a priest
Who’s known to convince minds with nothing but his fists
The rumour says he’s possessed and enjoys too much wine
But I know that it’s more complex and what is on his mind

My neighbour she’s so greedy, she would sell her soul for gold
She sees herself so pretty and now she’s scared of turning old
And her daughter, she’s ashamed of her mother’s acts and thoughts
She wants to tell but respect keeps the words stuck inside her throat

Poor Harry he’s sweating, he’d love to ask Sara to dance
But she’s thinking about Arthur who’ll soon return to France
To meet Charlotte, his first lover who still surely feels the same
But Charlotte doesn’t speak no more, the wait drove her insane

While sleepwalkers are meeting and kissing beneath the moon
Sad Suzanne, she feels lonely and lost inside her room
She’s sitting by her window, her diary still in sight
She just wrote that for one moment she’d love to feel alive

When Richard declares his love, pretty Jane always laughs
He pretends he’ll cut his wrists for her, she says that it’ll pass
But Richard was not pretending, they’ve just buried him down
And a large crowd was attending while Jane was leaving town

The last train leaves the station for honour or for hell
All the soldiers hold a ticket though none of them can tell
If the beggar is lying when he claims that he has slept
On this bench for ten years and seen no train returning yet

Juzzza

I love the stories, really cool.


Is there a chorus in there, does this tune have music to it or is it just lyrics at the moment?


Great stuff.

greg
08-13-2004, 09:35 AM
thanks a lot Juzzza
well it's just lyrics at the moment and I'm having a hard time trying to turn them into a song. It's rather long so I fear it might sound boring at the end. Maybe a chorus could fix that but I haven't thought of one yet.

greg
08-13-2004, 09:47 AM
this is a different one based on conversations I often had with my friends.


No, not again
Try to breathe and relax
And don’t draw conclusions
From a smile, from a laugh

Yes, I believe she’s so fine
She could change everything
But go to bed now and rest your weary eyes
We’ll see what tomorrow brings

Tell me, how could I sleep?
How could I let things go?
No, don’t try to keep
Me from letting her know

I call for the sacred fate
That has bound queens and kings
My heart can’t rest and I just can’t wait
To see what tomorrow brings

Dear friend, rely on fate for that
And you’ll rely on me tomorrow
To mend your broken heart
To get you through the sorrow

Your heart’s too easy to tease
You know, signs can have many meanings
So don’t fall so fast down on your knees
But see what tomorrow brings

Tomorrow will steal her away from me
And take her to another land
Yes, tomorrow she will sail the sea
I don’t know if I’ll see her again

But before time leads us apart
And regret keeps me from living
I’ll meet her tonight, I won’t betray my heart
Because I know what tomorrow brings

Many Tears from russia


have you seen the news all this scarred crying kids
runnin around in the mud shouting some names of dead friends
killed for nothin with a future a head
this isnt right innocent kids maybe five or six
killed for nothin with a future a head


Something must be done never let things like this come undone, justice must be judge for this terrible crime, runnin round killing kids something must be wrong

Alright mate, I've wrote quite alot of songs, this is one of my favourite ones, called 'Paradise':


You &amp; me, we're, lost in lust &amp; we're not getting out. So stop the fussing &amp; take the doubt out of it all. I've come to like it, despite the fact im, not quite in love. There's no more fighting or ways to hide from yourself.


Im gonna take the fall of you, &amp; put it to shame &amp; for all the crimes I've held, there is no pain.


Im gonna take the fall of you &amp; spread this new name, if loves like disease well then, there's nothing to gain.


Im ready to take no more &amp; leave it all behind &amp; save this land of luxury for someone else to find. Paradise is made for all coz there goes time, shooing at summer breeze, I declare, you mine.


- Let me know what you think...


Cheers, Paul.

wrote this4 years ago about a guy who had to go through chemo for 6 months and then found out he had to go through it again for a year more.





Trust in me'


Two seasons of rain, four more to come
dreams are all poisoned, no warmth from the sun
don't know what you're going through, but I'd go in place of you
can't explain the pain
but eyes tell more than words ever could
can't remain the same
given the chance, no one ever would

trust in me these words are true, trust in me, I'll be there for you, Iíll be there for you

felt autumn, even as a new bud
already seen paradise while still bone and mud
no mystery about what lies ahead
your own history is engraved in your head
still a quivering in your voice
still uncertainty in your walk

trust in me, I won't let you lose
trust in me, I'll wrap your wounds
trust in me, take my heart as yours
trust in me, you will endure, you will endure

remember
nothing worth having is easily gained
something worth giving will always remain
don't say you can't believe
don't say hope is a thief
make memories while you still can
can't let tomorrow become yesterdays plan



no need for all those tears
trust in me, I'll still your fears
trust in me, it won't be a lie
raise your eyes see the clear blue sky



remember, when troubles threaten I'll keep them at bay
do not surrender
ideals with substance fire the clay
look past the moment, don't forget home
look to love, you're never alone, youíll never be alone

trust in me, just put your hand in mine, trust in me, it will all be better in time,trust in me, Iíll be there for you, only for you

Hello everyone,


What a talented bunch you all are. I'm very proud.


I wrote this about being dumped! Its called Winter Wrist.


She said I'm leaving you tonight, her make ups been thickly applied but shes still beautiful to me,


She drags her stuff down the stairs, catches me unawares with a right hook and some spit


Bridge


You know she's so beautiful when shes angry with me, You know shes so beautiful when shes shouts this at me


Chorus


You are the winter on my wrist, you are the devil I first kissed, so why dont you take hands off me, I'm moving on without you just let me be.


Her bags are packed and by the door where we kissed just an hour before and I dont what I said


I need her now so much more, left hand up feeling sore, bruised soul is left for dead


Bridge


Chorus


End


Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Loads of good stuff here, I love the left hook and spit line Nathaniel!!! I had a monster ex who bit, kicked, punched, scratched and even head-butted me!!!


My lyrics for that episode of my life are as follows:


1.


I think of you
from time to time
after hearing a song or something you'd say

I smell perfume
or hear a laugh
see a girl in the distance who walks the same way

Chorus


It's funny how time erodes away
the weight of bad times andpain
it's hard to think you'll never be
a part of my life again
time must be a healer as
I can't recollect how I got these scars

2.


and have you found
another life
and the things you couldn't find with me

or are you still
blaming the one
you love whoever he may be



Wish I had a line in there about left hooks and spit...

I repaid her by being really nice about it. Foolish boy that I am. OPh well you live and learn at least she didnt sleep with my flat mate which is what my other x did. Mate I really can pick em!


Wrote a much nicer song for my best female mate Jo who has moved to the big smoke. She is my rock and agony aunt rolled into one. This is called Thank You.


Don't take on so cause you'll be fine, but I miss you already, You've only just gone, but it feels like a month, at least its not down to something I did wrong, I want to say thanks for your grace and ability to take my weight, when I lean on you, you're skin is so true, I guess I just miss you. - You're all I've got


Thanks for your mind when I cant ryhme, or get to work on time, thanks for your call, I'll try and stand tall, Drugs? well you know I've taken them all, And when you go, I will not show, the pin pricks in my arms, Cause you'll be fine and you will shine while keeping me safe from harm - You're all I've got.





I've exaggerated some of it for effect! What do you reckon? I wrote on Saturday and played at my gig last night. It went down ok.Edited by: Nathaniel

i trawled through this thread to find out if i had already posted but
as far as i can see i haven't. now my lyrics aren't half as good as any
of the ones here but here i go:



i see the stardust in your hair

feel the moonbeams on your hands

i hear voices when they're not there

and the ticking of clocks

behind closed doors



the city's alight

bright eyes and moonlit smiles

i know you're far away

but i would walk the moonlit miles

One Word to Hate


I'm in deep
it seems so real
didn't think I could function
and my senses reel
oceans away
and she sits alone
I'd give my life
to have you home


yesterday I could've been anyone
yesterday I was no one
I'm so alone
I'm so down
If there's one word to hate it's 'soon'
I just need you, please come home
to me, to me


kissing wind
the only way
to touch your love
when I need it bad
can't be with
can't be without
this torturous bliss
there's no way out


yesterday I could've been anyone
yesterday I was no one
I'm so alone
I'm so down
If there's one word to hate it's 'soon'
I just need you, please come home
to me, to me

Nathaniel
09-14-2004, 02:11 PM
Justin thats fantastic. I like it alot and have felt that way many times. I was working on this last night, its called Goodbye


Wheres your spark gone? was it all my fault through all the things that I've done wrong,


I wrote you my feelings down on some paper that I found,just forgot to give it to you


and if you let me stay I promise I can change, so your eyes can shine again and not my shade of grey


And did you look in and touch me, cause when I looked up you'd gone, and the sky is too high, for me, sometimes you never said goodbye,


Your tears still stain my skin, I try to remember your words, but I wasnt really listening,


I saw through myself tonight lost a dream cause I held far too tight, sorry that I failed you, I failed you


And did you look in and touch me cause when I looked up you'd gone, and the sky is too high, for me, sometimes you never said goodbye


And did you look in and kiss me, cause when I woke up you'd gone and I know I'm too high, for you , sometimes, I never said goodbye, I should have said goodbye.


Any feedback or ideas for improvements would be gretly appreciated.


Thanks

Here's one for novelty value, the first song I ever wrote... i think a few eskimos will chuckle at this.

MELODY MAKER MAN

I feel like a millionaire tonight,
A thousand million dreams are flowing out of sight.
Down, Down, Down. You bring me down.
Look into my eyes, watch me drown.

I feel like, I think Iím gonna cry
ĎCos youíre asking mw who, and youíre askin me why
Through, through, through. Iíve gotta get it through
That Iíll always be me and youíll always be you.


Iím a Melody Maker Man
Doing the best that I can
Trying to understand
My Soul is in your hands

You think that youíre some kind of Rock Star tonight
Everywhere that you go youíre stealing my limelight
Now, Now, Now. The time is always now.
And so Iíll bring it to you, gotta bring it somehow

Iím a Melody Maker Man
Doing the best that I can
Trying to Understand
My soul is in your hands

My heart is in your hands

My head is in my hands

Itís in your head, itís in your hands

Nathaniel I really like your style of writing, that song is great especiallyif you imagine the guy from the Streets spitting those lyrics out (try it and you will see what I mean). Just out of interest do you turn your lyrical ideas into actual songs, what style?

Thanks alot Justin, praise indeed. my friend KEv and covered Dry your eyes the other week at one of our pub gigs, it went down really well.


I'm actually an acoustic player with heavy influences from both Buckelys, Radioheadobviously more recently damienbut I also like shoegazer type music like Ride so its a bit of a mish mosh really. Most of my writing is melancholy and kind of raw but it works, well according to people who have heard it anyway! The above is a simple Am - G verse with a C, G, F chorus, pretty basic stuff.

Juzzza

Excellent, nothing wrong with basic shapes, take them all over the place with a Capo and BINGO, Damien Rice tunes coming out of your ears!!! Of course he throws in incredible songwriting and a beautiful voice to the mix too... And every now and then just to show he can play the guitar he writes songs like Eskimo and Cannonball!!!


Well, sounds like you have a winning formula and some great influences so keep banging them out man, they're good. And stay away from left-hooking ladies.smileys/smiley5.gif

cheers MMM I like it dude, the first song I ever wrote was this called perfect sea view as I live by the sea


So i think I really miss her,but then I'm not that sure


And on my lips where I kissed her, hurts more than it did before


Now the walk home takes much longer than it ever used to, and as I left her houseI was looking for the perfect sea view


Chorus


Oh if you take my hand, and dont let it go


No you dont understand that I have a blackened soul


But you can clean it


2


Stepped over cracks on the roadside which just increased in size


Stared at my reflection with sad lament as I hung myself with lies


Now the walkhome takes much longer than it ever used to, and as I left her house down the steps out the gate looking for the perfect sea view


Chorus


3


And now as this day fades away, into nothing


I slip slide away, into nothing


And they say I dunno who they are but they say I have potential


And I hate that f**king word cause I'm nothing without you.


Chorus


Wrote it and recorded it 99

its called weeping willow:


Weeping willow, don't shed no more tears,
Weeping willow, You've mourned him for years.

Winter is coming and it's time to rest.
It's hard to forget him, but you gotta try your best.
The birds will sing you lullabies,
They'll wrap you up in pink cotton, to keep you safe from their lies.

Weeping willow, don't shed no more tears,
Weeping willow, You've mourned him for years.

You've shed your tears, and your branches are bare,
It's better nowhe's no longer there.
The rainwater will wash away the pain,
and the wind will rock you to sleep again.

Weeping willow, don't shed no more tears,
Weeping willow, You've mourned him for years.

Weeping willow, what goes on in your head?
Weeping willow, now your love is dead,
Won't you tell us,
What goes on in your head?

Weeping willow, don't shed no more tears,
Weeping willow, You've mourned him for years.

this is a song i wrote about my death metal classmates (who think they are unholy). its about god coming home and hunting the unholy... all i got is 1 verse and a chorus so far, and the very first line isnt brilliant, but it is a beautiful song indeed.


Better hope for your prayers,


Better hope for your prayers,


Or you'd better watch your back,


When he's looking through that crack,


Bearing down,


down,


down,


down,


down on you...





[CHORUS]


So all you unholy people


Go and hide in your holes


Cos' god is coming home,


And he's gonna make this place a heaven on earth....

heres a wee bit of a new song im writing:





Please tell me my eyes were decieved//give me some kind of reprieve//for what i saw it couldnt have been real//my bodys numb and i hav nothing left to feel//


I found a trail of clothes and underwear//leading my slowly up the stairs//all i heard was the love// love not for me// was it worth it baby?// was it f**kin extacy?//


(bridge)


How could you do this to me now// didnt know you were lost but im glad youve found// whatever it takes to put a smile on your face!


Im happy that I can finally see//how much of a bitch you turned out to be// now youve crushed the best part of me// coz ur lock was picked by his prick and im left holding the key...





thats all i got juss now lol

I'm liking that! Specially the part about the key...


Try these out for size:
Being Me<?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Sometimes I just want to scream and shout
But nobody wants to hear
I just want to pour my whole heart out
But nobody seems to care
So I hold it in
Till the hurt and anger turns to tears
And in a quiet place I cry
Finally realising my fears

CHORUS
Thereís no one to hold me
When Iím insecure
To love me when Iím stupid
And then to ignore
Mistakes and angry words
That have somehow gotten free
Is there anyone to love me
Just for being me?

All my life was cruel and sad
I kept it bottled in
I was poisoned with the bad
Where do I begin?
Tainted silences
That could drive a man insane
But it doesnít bother me
You canít go mad again

CHORUS

Trapped inside for all these years
I've been blinded by my tears
Now its time to face my fears

CHORUS x 2


They're a bit 'oh woe is me I'm so emo' but they were written when i was going through my tragic teenage stage. Lol. Reading through them now, they actually suck a lot more than i first realised. Ah well, opinions???

She Likes The Rain:
She likes the rain, it makes her feel so much better,
She likes the rain, cause it keeps her mind together,
But it gets hard everytime, the sun starts to shine,
It gets harder, and she dont feel so fine.
<?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
The sun was shining yesterday,
And I kept wishing the blue sky would turn to grey,
Cause sheís only smiling when itís raining,
And Iím glad itís raining today,
So let itÖ.

Rain down on yesterday,
Wash all her worries away,
Rain down on yesterday,
Start fresh, itís a brand new day.

She likes the rain,
When sheís out walking with me,
April showers make her happy as can be,
When it rains, she forgets all the harsh words spoken,
When it rains, she forgets all the promises and hearts left broken,

She ainít all there, and she knows it too,
Staying sane in her world is the hardest thing to do,
So I pray the rain it never stops,
She never gets wet cause she walks in between the drops,
So wont itÖÖ.

Rain down on yesterday,
Wash all her worries away,
Rain down on yesterday,
Start fresh, itís a brand new day

one from my black rose series, most of which is here:

The sky is broken,
And thereís cracks in her heart.
Her mascaras running down her face,
She laughs, and says, ďits art.Ē

A murder of crows circles overhead,
As the last petal falls from her black rose
Sheís a black belt in misery,
But it rarely ever shows.

She says ďIím a picture of insanity,
And you are my frameÖĒ
She tries to keep within his limits,
But he treats it like a game.

And the last rose petal hits the ground,
She opens her mouth to laugh without a sound.
She says ďGod is an elephant,
and weíve scared Him off at our bestĒ

And she draws a knife from its sheath,
and plunges it into her chest.

She cannot be defined:

She’s not wearing any mask
She’s known to be courageous
There’s a cross around her neck
But she’s not even religious

She cannot be defined
She loves to confuse my mind.

She will lend a helping hand
And respect all your convictions
Then she will make you believe
She doesn’t have her own opinions

She cannot be defined
She loves to confuse my mind.

She is never suspicious
She expects no explanations
She just stands here watching
And waiting for your reactions

She cannot be defined
She loves to confuse my mind.

She’s dreaming of a home
She’s not found the perfect location
So she keeps pinning on a map
Her past and next destinations

She cannot be defined
She loves to confuse my mind.

His Her<?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Sheís left you unexpectedly
Can love withstand the miles?
Youíd follow her forever
Just to bathe in all her smiles
But back home I stand here waiting
Just a shadow by the door
If you follow her forever
Iíd follow you for even more

If you believe love can stand the distance
Then Iíll let you be
But if she gives up please realize
You can still come back to me

Sheís made a mask of make up
To hide her blatant guilt
If faithfulness was flowers
Hers have begun to wilt
My face is so much clearer
You get just what you see
So when sheís blinded both your eyes
Just take a look at me

If you believe love can stand the distance
Then Iíll let you be
But if she gives up please realize
You can still come back to me

Maybe sheís just right for you
Maybe she does what I donít do
But tell me is she in love with you
Like I am?

If you believe love can stand the distance
Then Iíll let you be
But if she gives up please realize
You can still come back to me

alright we wouldnt want to incur lauren's wrath -


something I wrote and recorded a few years ago- called "stole a car"


I took a trip down the street passed the place we used to meet


all those years ago


And what was that I heard you say as I watched you walk away


well I guess i'll never know


So I stole a car and ran away headed for the break of day


as though I was in a dream


but after I had another drink so I didnt have to think


about when we were seventeen


So here I am as I was before drunk and standing outside your door


praying that your not with him


two shadows behind the glass and my heart is beating fast


as the lights begin to dim


So I forgot about my shame and I shouted out your name


to be met by silence


and then I counted up to 10 and shouted out again


to be met by his violence


So the moral of the story here kids is dont get drunk, steal a car and drive to your ex girlfriends as her new boyfriend will probably beat you up!smileys/smiley36.gif


And before you ask its not autobiographical - well not completely anywaysmileys/smiley2.gif

He washed the blood from his hands,
as he stared at his face in dismay.
The water ran red,
He'll find no peace today.

She slumped on the floor
with her head in her hands,
her rain soaked hair,
had been chopped into strands.

She'd not speak a word,
or look at his face
She wished she had stopped him.
she hung her head in disgrace.

His mind ran wild
with the horror of the night
He'd killed a child,
a child taken out of fright.

The child had been running
through the woods while at play.
He'd found their black roses
but would not leave that place today.

They'd kept a secret
throughout all these years,
Scared of the truth being discovered,
the child fuelled their fears.

He says "we'll forget it all now,
wash the blood down the sink"
but she always will remember,
her hands forever stained pink.

He says "we will bury the body,
neath the black rose.
We'll say we never saw him,
make sure no one knows.

Make sure no one knows,
No one will ever know,
They will never know."

Listen to me
Iím not speaking
Listen carefully
Can you hear me breathing?
I know the pattern your heart makes
I know your smile when itís fake
So will you sing a song only I can understand?
Will you walk by my side as I travel through this land?
And should I stumble will you lend me your hand?
So I donít fall down
You are the one who clears my sight
Helps me to see whatís wrong and whatís right
And shelters my body with yours at night
Without you Iíd fall down

Hold on to me
Iím still waiting
Hold me tenderly
Just to stop the shaking
I know the fall of your footsteps
I know your joys and your regrets
So will you sing a song only I can understand?
Will you walk by my side as I travel through this land?
And should I stumble will you lend me your hand?
So I donít fall down
You are the one who clears my sight
Helps me to see whatís wrong and whatís right
And shelters my body with yours at night
Without you Iíd fall down

hope someone eventually sees this. this is the first verse of a song that i wrote almost exactly a year ago. here goes


so it is sad that its gonna end like this


theres a smile on your face but with two clenched fists


one holding onto something thats slipping through your fingers


the other packed tight aiming straight at strangers and a strangers what i am though id rather be the water thats slipping through your fingers that you love so much harder. thats all that i can remember off the top of my head. enjoy ripping it apart.

I won't be vulnerable to attack.

I've been cold and I've been hard
I may have been a less than open soul, no apologies
I've been broke and I've been made
I've lied and stole to get you where you are, I'd do it all again
I'm not about to break down, without the rain we'd never see the sun

but I'm cold son
I'm so cold son
I'm cold son
I'm so cold son... cold son

All my life I've never shed a tear
I've never dropped down to my knees
through you I know that I'll live on

I pulled you down I picked you up
I made you strong and now you're on your own, you know where I am
I find it hard I find it strange, to tell you what I feel, too late for regrets
I'm not about to break down, without the rain we'd never see the sun

but I'm cold son
I'm so cold son

nice justin nice mate -


this is called In Her Sky


Shes colder than she used to be...and secretly,


I'll choke myself to sleep on her...complacency,


Her ego affects her speech so her beauty is just out of reach and this is where,it gets so typical


I cant fly, even in her sky, I cant fly, even though I try, I cant fly, burdened with her last goodbye and my tears have stained her skin


All wrapped in cotton wool...i must be the fool,


from all that shes done before...I'm scarred and I'm sore,


She walks down a narrow road but its overgrown now or so I'm told and this is where, she will come to clip my wings

No matter


Glad you think I'm a good one
and it's nice to know friends agree
but I can tell you're still not sure
not one hundred percent it should be me

don't stay because you should do
or because of the things I do
being special or nice or a good one
in the end won't be enough for you

CHORUS

It doesn't matter that you should
it matters that you don't
this is a one-way street
and it's lonely here waiting for you

2

I can tell that you wish you did
but it's plain you ain't feeling it
maybe it's too soon and your heart
is still with someone else or just not with me

you can't pick whom how or when
but you can be honest with me
If it doesn't fit it's worse to force it
it builds my hopes up to crush them you see

CHORUS

It doesn't matter that you should
it matters that you don't
this is a one-way street
and it's lonely here waiting for you

Its called Coffee Cups and Bed Hair...
Winterís so much colder when youíre gone
I walked around for hours catching raindrops on my tongue
Wandering streets alone, reluctant to go home
Cause I know Iím facing videos and ready meals for one

Coffee cups and bed hair
Reflect the night before
My bed is cold and still bare
My heart still cracked and sore

Rooms echo silence when your not here
I walked around for ages, shirt undone and footsteps bare
Listening to screams that shattered dying dreams
And I know Iím facing bed sheets that smell faintly of your hair

Coffee cups and bed hair
Reflect the night before
My bed is cold and still bare
My heart still cracked and sore

theres a place called always where love often resides
love lives there its whole life and there it often dies
and in always, theres a land called forever
and theyre quite few in numbers
but the get by just the same
and forever its a long time
for the sun to always shine
a shadow not to be cast
cause theres light in every corner


oh forever, you wouldnt let me in your gates
if i brought just another pretty face
but i suppose thats for the better
because always, and forever have their own patterns
light their streets with different lanterns
but thats no matter. lets keep forever, together.


now forevers dying, while always thrives
neon lights light up a once starry sky
nearby forever's weeping, not for its own demise
but for the pain thats cast upon a sinless starry sky


oh always, will you always be like this?
take a lesson from forever, and open up your fists
to open hearts, but be sure to close your gates because
the floods are surely bound to come, and no love needs to die.


and so it is, as its been always before
always always always forgets to shut the door
and in comes the water, and in comes the tide
bringing in the shells and fish to die
piled up now nearly miles high

Thats so pretty! I like the bit about 'oh forever, you wouldnt let me in your gates if i brought just another pretty face' its shows that you cantjust expect to fall in love with the first person who looks good. Im very impressed. Well done u smileys/smiley32.gif

Sam and Betty
Sam strolled down the street
his girl Betty on his arm
She looks a million dollars
but he won her over with his charm.


Cigarette stumps and bottles join
the streetlights that light the way home,
They're the signature of solitude,
they show the streets where the nighthawks roam.


He says "Ya know I had a girl before you,
It's a funny story with a twist.
I knocked her up in the fall,
and in the winter she married a mad scientist."


She says "Well I had a guy before you,
He was handsome and big and tall
but i had to leave him in the summer,
cause his mind was ignorant and small."


"Well," Sam says, "The future's looking bright,
and we can close this chapter on our past alright
Cause when life starts to go cold my friend,
you know that chapter's coming to an end."


And she takes a cigarette from her handbag,
and asks him for a light
He felt like he was in a musical,
as they wandered off together into the night.

Bleary Eyed and Tongue Tied


Passed out against the window


Still dream about you though


Everytime I've got my eyes closed


Fell asleep in all my clothes,


Cant remember how I got home last night


Chorus


And I've got to stop dreaming about this girl


She's keeping my breating out of time with world


And she keeps reeling me in


2


You took me by surprise


When I'm bleary eyed and tongue tied


Took me for a ride


When I'm drunk and oh so high


Bleary eyed and tongue tiedevery night


I've got to stop...etc

Youíve done it again
Brought tears to my eyes
Youíve made it so easy
For me to cry
Salt hits the bedclothes
As I continue to weep
I slowly drown
Myself to sleep

no worries loz course you can use after all I nicked an idea from you so I think its only fair- you out and about on Friday - am going to stripes to check out gary's band more than normal?


I know you were waiting for me to post these - but have now got plans to record it properly in a studio after Christmas


Transparent Skin


Went through the door and down the stairway


was just in time to see your car pulling away, I'll say


I wasn't looking for anything new, the only thing I was ever really searching for... was you


Empty gunshells at central station and what a surprise


To find they thought I brought about my own demise, I'll say


I wasnt looking to ket you in , but you saw all my faults and all my flaws through my...transparent skin


Chorus


Now that I know we are changing, theres distance in your eyes as, they look into mine, and now I've just resigned myself to the fact that I've, got transparent skin its enough to let you in


3


All your words that I've just remembered


Thinking of the time I first kissed you in late december


Memory the mother of the muses where've you been,


Did you seep through the pores in my...transparent skin


Chorus


outro


now I'm tryin to find a way to say I'm sorry that I let you down


trying to find a way to say I'm sorry that I make you frown


trying to find a way to say if I glitter it dont make me gold


trying to find a way to say I'm sorry that i bruised you soul


there you go loz -


anyone has any comments I would appreciate them

Song for Sarah


Shesaidshe liked me last night, but we concurred


it wasnt love at first sight


I was singing volcano


and there is more to me than you did know


bridge


I dont know why you say these things and let them pass by


but its all I've got now shes gone


Chorus


I need your touch


was it all too much for you


and I need a kiss


with some full attitude


and I miss your skin you know I miss your skin


2


She said I was dead at the time


and she would never be mine


And I see her eyes shining bright like they did in there


and I know shes my queen sing me to sleep


Bridge


I dont know why she says these things and lets them pass by


but its all I have now shes gone


Chorus

this is as yet untitled


I recalled your face


As you watched me fall from grace


Never want to see that again


As you looked up to me back then





Just so you know the powder has gone


And my eyes have not shone


This bright in oh so long


Feels to good to finally admit I was wrong





And I'll lead you in if you let me


In if you trust me


In if you still love me


In if you want me to





Oh its always been you





If I studied your face


Could I guess your taste


All those contours and lines


Forms a beauty that blinds me





I would sing to you again


From the letters I did not send


And I'd sing you a star


The star that you are





And I'll lead you in if you let me


In if you trust me


In if you still love me


In if you want me to





Oh its always been you





And if you'll let me I'll sing you a song that only you will understand


Come on baby take my hand and together we can leave this land And chase


a dream because when I'm with you I feel as naÔve as I did when I was


only seventeen So hey you what do you say we could get married and run


away Chase a dream when I'm with you I feel as naÔve as I did when I


was only seventeen





Spoken bit


So here I am I a changed man


You say I never see anything through


But here I am standing here playing this just for you


Just for you


As usual any feedback improvements would be appreciated

only written 2 songs so far, one of which is very short, very simple, the
other isn't really even finished yet, but having read so much great stuff,
and seeing so many people taking the plunge, here goes.

1st one is called 'star' - i think, open to suggestions!

you should have seen the sky we saw last night,
everywhere you looked were shooting stars.
and everyone around was making wishes,
except for me - i didn't know what to wish for.

everyone i love is sleeping,
sleeping underneath a different sky.
but i recall the feel of her heart beating,
on a wish-sent night when she lay by my side.

so now i've made my mind up and i'm certain,
i'll send my wish to her across the sea.
and maybe it will bring her something special.
and maybe it will bring her back to me.

that's it - like i said, short and simple.

second one has no name yet...

you showed me the fountain with all the wild horses -
you called it your favourite place.
and bright water gush, yeah and wild horses dance
and your beautiful, sorrowful face.

and hours spent talking in silence and whispers
of nothing and everthing.
and all of my secrets revealed in the words
of the song i'd forgotten to bring.

"but i don't want love", you said -
"and it's the way i'll always feel."
"so don't wait for me", you said,
"cos all you have to give i know i'll never need".

the year it was turning, the fire was burning,
burning for you and for me.
and the heat of your kiss and the feel of your skin
and the shock of how good it can be.

yeah but when you were gone, my heart it was torn
between the truth and these memories.
how could nothing have changed? how could you still feel the same?
you can keep your apologies.

"but i don't want love", you said -
"and it's the way i'll always feel."
"so don't wait for me", you said,
"cos all you have to give i know i'll never need".

and i would have waited as long as you needed
i'm sure that you already know.
and does it make me weak or does it make me strong
holding on when i can't let you go?

yeah and now you're with him and he's holding you close
and he wakes to the warmth of your smile.
and a heartbreak delayed breaks your heart just the same
there's no kindness in little white lies.

"i don't want love", you said -
but you were just trying to be kind.
"i'll never want love", you said
but the love you didn't want, i see now is mine.

that's it! not sure about all of it, might change bits, who knows. anyway,
any opinins, criticisms, whatever, would be great. cheers, darlin's!

Or the shadow of a ghost that walks beside me<O:P></O:P>
Iíll suck on it all and wipe the sh*t from my sleeve<O:P></O:P>
<O:P></O:P>

Chorus<O:P></O:P>
And if I could be the man like in the stories that you heard<O:P></O:P>
And Iíll just look at the pictures while you read the words<O:P></O:P>
And if I could be anything to you<O:P></O:P>
You know I would<O:P></O:P>
<O:P></O:P>

My hearts beating faster when Iím lying beside her<O:P></O:P>
And I know that this feelingprobably wont last<O:P></O:P>
Read the words on the paper around which her hands are clasped<O:P></O:P>
Says ďsee you boy your heart gets involved too fastĒ<O:P></O:P>
Goodbye boy you fall in love too fast<O:P></O:P>
<O:P></O:P>

And if I could be the man like in the stories that you heard<O:P></O:P>

Never Caused The Rain (parts 1&amp;2)<?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Part 1

I woke up and the scar is forming Ė down my spine
Never saw her sun rise up this morning Ė but she said she was fine
So what did you say as I watched you walk away
Blame me again but I never caused the rain
I didnít cause the rain

And Iíve seen you standing there praying for me to touch you
And Iíve seen you down on your knees begging me to want you

She said what you gonna do if the scar wont heal Ė well Iíll hold me breath
Stop trying to tell me that I donít feel Ė when I scared to death
Oh blame me again Oh wont you blame me
Blame me please but Iím not the one whos on my knees
And I didnít cause the rain

And Iíve seen you standing there praying for me to touch you
And Iíve seen you down on your knees begging me to want you
And Iíve seen you and all those stupid things you do

Part 2

But then hush baby close my eyes and think about the way you are and the way you say my name
The rain trickles down the glass and I can see your words inscribed upon the pain
Well Iíll close my eyelids and sing myself to sleep and I hope you will keep these words in mind

Well you should know that Iím sorry
You should know that I miss you
Please say you want me, say you need me, say I mean everything to you
But Iím so sorry Iím so sorry that I did those things to hurt you
Say that you love please say that you love me
And I swear that I never

I never caused the rain

Simple, a bit soppy, but I've a nice melody for it.smileys/smiley1.gif

I canít believe itís all over now, that this time has come.
I never thought that it would end. I though we were one.
Babe, donít look me in the face and tell me that Iím replaced, just go.
You left me in a mess, I canít even get dressed. Shut the door.
You said ďI canít love you anymoreĒ
No, I, canít love you anymore
<?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
And here we are once again, loosening the chains around us.
How it feels to be right here, how it feels to be so low.
Oh, oh. Oh no.

Babe, donít look me in the face and tell me that Iím replaced, just go.
Babe, you left me in a mess, I canít even get dressed. Shut the door
You said ďI canít love you anymoreĒ
No, I, canít love you anymore

Tonight my heart sings for you. Tonight my head hurts for you
Tonight my eyes cry for you. Tonight my hands shake for you
Tonight my heart sings for you. Tonight my head hurts for you
Tonight my eyes cry for you. Tonight I wave goodbye to you
Tonight my heart sings for you. Tonight my head hurts for you
Tonight my eyes cry for you. Tonight, I would die for you.

But I canít love you anymore (Itís not good for me.)
No I canít love you anymore.
I canít love you anymore
I canít love you anymore
I canít love you anymore
Youíre not good for me.

I really like these lines. smileys/smiley1.gifAnd how the phrase is kind of left hanging for the readers/listeners mind to fill in the blank at the end.


...andsince i'll be the one who never will confine him,
i am the one he loves, the one he inevitably longs to be -
helongs to be...


...and since i'll bethe one to never redefine him,
i am the one he loves, the one he inevitably longs to be,
he longs to be...

1st one is called 'star' - i think, open to suggestions!

you should have seen the sky we saw last night,
everywhere you looked were shooting stars.
and everyone around was making wishes,
except for me - i didn't know what to wish for.

everyone i love is sleeping,
sleeping underneath a different sky.
but i recall the feel of her heart beating,
on a wish-sent night when she lay by my side.

so now i've made my mind up and i'm certain,
i'll send my wish to her across the sea.
and maybe it will bring her something special.
and maybe it will bring her back to me.

that's it - like i said, short and simple.




I really like this one. smileys/smiley1.gifI like the title "star" and if you expand the lyrics it would be cool to bring that theme into it more and tie it into the shooting stars at the beginning. Maybe a metaphor for heaven or direction or falling or something? Just a thought. I really like the phrase "on a wish-sent night".

ok this is an improv.





i was there before


she put on her clothes


like it was


the first time


she've done it


everything breathing


the table


the two chairs


her old steel bed


all four walls


a drop of winter


in hot summer day


i tried to leave


before noon


she killed me with the only knife she had

cheers sis! glad you like it - not sure i'll expand on it tho, i kinda like the
way it's so short and simple. i have an mp3 of it if you want to hear it -
just me and my guitar at home, all very quiet so as not to wake anyone
up!

lol ain't it the way... I think so much more creative work would be accomplished if insomniacs (who work better at night) didn't have to worry about waking the household. smileys/smiley2.gifI'd love to hear it, j.I think I heard one of your covers on the mp3 page awhile back. Nice work. Sometimes short and simple songs are the most powerful, don't you think?

its a duet
Just Another Conversation<?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

You: I saw you just the other day
Me: But you still wont touch my skin
You: Its good to see you looking so well
Me: what exactly do you mean?
You: Iím glad to see you turned your life around
Me: I havenít but what do you care, what the f**k do you care?

Chorus

You: You know I wouldíve turned the world around for you but never asked me
You: I wouldíve turned the world around for you if youíd only asked me
Me: I asked you to turn the world around for me but you never answered

You: what are you up to now?
M: Well Iím going back home to my place
You: what you gonna do when they come for you?
Me: Iím gonna get out of my face
You: I wanna help you if it crashes down
Me: you may have left it far too late, far too late for me

You: Oh you know I wouldíve have turned the world around for you if youíd only asked me
You: I would have turned the world around for you but you never asked me
You: I couldíve done anything for you but you were a fool

Me: you said youíd turned the world around if only asked you
Me: you said you would turned it all around but I never asked you
Me: I asked every single day but you never hear a word I say

Me: Hear a word I say
Me: Please lay down with me
Me: Lay down next to me yeah
Me: I could sing you a star on a boulevard
Me: I could scratch you a scar all the way up my arm
Me: So wont you sing me a star on boulevard baby or scratch me scar all up my arm honey

hi again -

so i took some bits from one of the songs i posted before and put them
with bits from a different songs (about the same person/situation...) and
thought i'd post it here for any comments/suggestions... think i'm calling
it "i wish i had".

i wish i had a picture of you
cos it's been so long since you were here
and i can't remember every little piece of you
and i can't pretend that i don't miss you dear.

i wish i had you here tonight
cos i know just what i'd do and say.
i'd kiss you until every little thing was right
and you'd be so happy you wouldn't want to go away.

"but i don't want love," you said,
"and that's the way i'll always feel."
"so don't wait for me," you said,
"cos what you have to give, I'll never need."

i wish i had been good enough for you -
been more like him, i guess i mean to say.
been someone special you would want to hold on to -
been someone you would not just turn away

but i know you hate to hurt me dear
cos i saw my sorrow in your eyes,
and i heard the kindness in your white lies...

"i don't want love," you said,
but you were just being kind.
"i don't want love," you said,
but the love you didn't want, i see now was mine.

i've set up a yahoo briefcase thingy so when i can i'll put this and 'star' in
there for anyone who wants to hear them. don't know if they're any good
or not but i want to keep trying to write and i think it's good to have
some kind of target, so that's what i'll aim for, since singing in front of
actual live people is way too freaky...Edited by: jmc105

well, after almost losing it with my computer, i've opened a yahoo
briefcase. if you want to hear the only 2 songs i ever wrote (so far!), go to
briefcase.yahoo.com (http://briefcase.yahoo.com) -

login: eskimojmc
password: jmcsongs

in the 'songs' folder i've put 'star' (short and simple) and 'i wish i had'
(longer and slightly reduced sound quality to keep it under 5mb). they're
both just me and my guitar (and minidisc), keeping quiet so as not to
wake anyone...

i have no idea if they're any good or completely awful - if anyone wants to
hear them and let me know what they think that'd be cool!

always echos, i'll have a look through your posts and try to pick my favs.
how many do you need for your anthology?

Wow! http://www.eskimofriends.com/forum/smileys/smiley32.gifI got your email and just listened to this... again... wow! "Star" was lovely but this is beautiful (and kind of heartbreaking actually) and your voice is amazing, John, I mean if that's what you can do under "very quiet so as not to wake the house" circumstances, well... I wouldn't be shy singing in front of actual live ppl if I were you! Tho I can't talkhttp://www.eskimofriends.com/forum/smileys/smiley9.gifonly one other eskimo has heard me sing but I really admire you guys that overcome your shyness and put your music out there.

just wanted to say how cool it is that you took the time to listen to my
songs, and said such nice things about them!smileys/smiley9.gif - thanks m!

if anyone else wants to hear them, i opened a yahoo briefcase - for some
reason the link button for putting a link in a message doesn't work
tonight...or maybe it's just me... anyway, if you go to
briefcase.yahoo.com, then login like so:

login: eskimojmc
password: jmcsongs

then you should find 2 songs in the 'songs folder. if anyone does try to
listen to them please let me know if the briefcase doesn't work, i've never
set one up before so i hope it works... i just realised that i posted almost
this exact message already... sorry! smileys/smiley2.gif

This is of my favourites that I play live often called ' I don't care' about when you think about something too much that you have to let it go eventually.


Verse


For all of the passion I knew it would end this way.&n bsp;&n bsp; The beautiful nights and the Clouds cover over the day&nb sp; And I felt the healing, in the wings of your soul&n bsp;&n bsp; you came from heaven, you came from heaven


So my time is coming, every beat of my heart tells me so.&nb sp; I'm scared of the winter, lets build those castles of snow.& nbsp; Time will believeme, I've got no more feelings to show.& nbsp; She came from heaven, She came from heaven


Chorus


And all of the times I've been lonely and all of the faces I've seen. For all of the love that you gave me, I can't fit my life in between. And all I can do is remember, these crazy times that we've shared. Every breath that you take your'e my saviour, now I don't care.


Verse


So come down from your cloud andlet me know that you're real.You've taken my life, there's no more feelings to steal. And I wont sit here waiting, for a telephone call.& nbsp;& nbsp; She fell fromheaven, she fell from heaven.

<HR style="COLOR: #202066" SIZE=1>

<DIV>I saw it
that first day
in you
that removal look in your eye
room was full with peering eyes
I only saw yours
wishing they were at the far end of the sky

to hold you
to hold you was my only thought
then you put your hand to your ear
and I wondered
is she going to talk?
though you were simply scratching the back of your neck
I had to look away to check
check I hadn't died or winced
I hadn't
but I've been shaking my head in disbelief ever since
I never knew beauty came so undefined
those little soft unlisted lines
a smile I'd no right to find

I saw it
that last day
in you
that removal look in your eye
and you spoke saying how I was tall
I'm not used to your voice
you have no idea at all

song name is : Out of time

played with capo6.



Verse 1

this is where the story starts,

all alone without you,

stupid mind games and confessions,

bitching on the phone too.



chorus 1

everyday is another,

taking one step at a time

coping well without you

starting to get back in line,

[b]

verse 2

then you walk in through my door [again]

you just want to talk,

ruining all my progression

for just a single thought,



chorus 2

all the nights that i dreamt of you

all the days that i cried

you were nowhere near me then

its not like you even tried



verse 3

all the memorys will stay with me

but i think well never be free

everytime i think of you

i cant live without you



chorus 3

how long oh and its forever[she said]

how long, its for a while

how long and its never [oh no]

were almost out of time



verse 4

now i sit here writing this song,

thinking of what has happened

all i know is that

im all on my own again



chorus

well how long oh and its forever she said

how long its for a while

how long and its never ohh no

were almost out of time



verse 5

this is where the story ends

all alone without you

everytime i think of you

i cant live without you



chorus

and how long its forever [she said]

and how long its for a while

how long will this last [i dont know]

its just gone and past me by.



chorus

how long and its forever

how long its for a while

how long and its never

were all, were all out of time.

'enough'

if you ever
feel lost -
and no-one
knows your name -

if you ever
pay the cost -
but you find
no gain,

remember -

you were loved.

if you ever
feel alone -
and no-one
understands -

if you're living
far from home -
and it's slipping
from your hands -

remember -

you were loved.

and maybe -
that will be -

enough.

and when i leave
your life -
just to leave
this pain -

and it feels
just like -
i never
will again -

i'll remember -

how you were loved.

and maybe -
that will be -

enough.

i don't know what to say, so manylovely lovely words, making lovely poems and songs too im sure. this is one of my songs, i hate that i can only put music to really simple lines, but hopefully as i go along ill be able to use my poems for songs one day :)


this is called holding on.... i think.. i haven't decided yet :)





i always wondered if you knew, how much i cried over you, and the way you left it made me cry, we never really said goodbye,


i hold on to the one that's gone away, though in my heart with me you stay..


too fast you were gone, memories last if you hold on, but they fade every day, i guess there really is no way,


to hold on to one that's gone away, though in my heart with me, you stay...


time passes so fast, years slip into the past, but i have promised to remember, i swear i do every september,


i hold on to the one that's gone away, though in my heart with me you stay, cause i'm still holding on to the one that's gone away, though further from me you slip each day, but i could never wish you away, cause i'm still holding out to see you some day....

Cant stop yourself falling to the ground


If you close your eyes, youll find the worlds still turning around


Your chance come along, Reach out and take it while you can..


You missed again now get ya head back in the sand


Thats the way you appear to be


In your mind you see things diffently


Turn off the light and say what you see


Get out of your head,Comeout of your head


andcome and talkwith me


Talkwith me.......


Time waits for no-one, now go and take it by the hand


Turn up your thoughts, but try and listen while ya can


Go chat with the past, what did it have to say?


Thinks your gonna make it, now theres nothin in your way


Your a queen, and thats meant to be


Now in your mind you see things clearly


Turn On the lights is that what you see?


Come down from your head


Come out of head and come and talk with me...


Come on talk with me


Come and talk with me... yeah yeah etc etc......smileys/smiley17.gif

this ones a bit soppy but thats me all over.a sensitive soul!
Love is like a sapling<?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
More fragile than it looks
It needs support to keep
It growing strong and true
Could I ever get this?
Could I ever know the joy of real love?
Life is like a path,
Winding, with weeds pushing up through
Fighting to break up the bond
I need someone by my side
Could it be you?
I dread that in my final years
I shall be a lonely tree
Growing twisted and gnarled
That no one wants to look at or touch
In your eyes do I see the same love reflected?
Or is it just a dream?
Will my hopes ever blossom into realities?
Like the bloom on the trees?

Ive got to post the lyrics to the song that my boyfriend wrote for me as my christmas present. It's not very long but i love it. Its called "Let Me Say"


How can i be there when you need me?
How can i sit there when you ignore me?
The secrecy of uncertainty
Is pulling smiles from your face
And i know what you're thinking when you close your eyes
Now can you see that I am mending?
Now with your words I stop pretending
The secrecy of uncertainty
Is pulling smiles from your face
And i know what you're thinking when you close your eyes


Then theres this gorgeous guitar solo that makes me go all dreamy and silly. Its a beautiful song. As soon as i work out how to upload it, i'll post a link.


I'm so soppy smileys/smiley9.gif

hey guys... i wrote a song a while back called never mine.. i play it in the band and they aren't my best lyrics but could yiz please give me yer take on them...


All the problems brought forward
I can see the light
All these drawning toward
Finding something right
I can see ya smiling now
I know we're on to something good
I know it's in what we could
Not in what we should


Everything that you have got
Is never mine, never mine
No everything that you have got
Is never mine, never mine


I walk out the door
Then I stumble up the street
We've been here before
Is there somewhere else that we can meet
Your eyes are dark
They're almost scaring me
You've left your mark
Told me how it has to be...


Everything that you have got
Is never mine, never mine
No everything that you have got
Is never mine, never mine

i can hear the wind blow,right outside my window,i hear your voice in the breeze,sounding so painful like you were walkingin the rainfall,i hear your footsteps through the leaves.so why cant i see you ,maybe then i could free you,from all the pain you feel inside,walking through the darkness i call but all i do is stumble and fall,i feel so helpless while you cry,.moon madness as i watch you fade into the night,moon madness as i watch my love fade out of sight.


they're all amazing guys. i wish i couldwrite stuff like that!


niallo this one really touched me personally. thats not meant to diss the others this is just kind of true to me at the mo.smileys/smiley9.gif
