Default a tragic ending

goodbye my almost lover
goodbye my almost friend

we just donít fit together
this is the beginning of the end

I keep on trying to reach you
To touch your heart
Sadly I do not yet have a model start
Iím learning love from a viewscreen
Why canít I see
That after all this sadness
I canít be me

And what a tragic ending
One I canít explain
But you would understand
If you knew the range
A mother in the earth
Four years gone by
Still I glimpse in there
A grief that will not die

Advance to the finish
Cross the line
Iíll stand at the exit
And scream as you fly by

Canít keep this feeling quiet
That time is leaving
If I donít keep on trying
Sooner or later
This boy will leave
To chase his own dreams
Where will that leave me?

And what a tragic ending
One I canít explain
But you would understand
If you knew the range
A mother in the earth
Four years gone by
Still I glimpse in there
A grief that will not die

first verse needs some work cuz i wrote it to the tune of "almost lover" by a fine frenzy and cribbed some lines from her originally.

italic lines from a fine frenzy's "almost lover".

I thought I'd share something here as well. This thing doesn't really have any music, but I've written this while keeping some tunes and melodies in mind. It is about a close friend of mine. It is a bit dramatic and emo-ish and stuff, lol. Anyway, here it is.

A Crying Monolith

He spins a world not only his own
Tears behind a mask cold as stone
Tangling the misled with his fall
He denies himself, defies it all

A monolith slowly starting to crack
He prays for the days to turn back
Escaping shapes only in his eyes
Hiding the truth yet not spilling lies

'And it burns
Father, it burns
I lie intertwined
With none by my side'

'And I hurt
Father, I hurt
Every castle I build
Wrecked down by deceit
Don't need me'

A weeping wonder still growing colder
Scars grow warmer though the child is older
Sharpened and hardened by a long gone embrace
Left with silent shame and bitterness to face

Helpless struggle to caress the crust
Soul seeking shards of divine trust
Surrounded by summer but winter by heart
The armoured infant screaming:

'How it burns
Father, it burns
I lie intertwined
With none by my side'

'And I hurt
Father, I hurt
Every castle I build
Wrecked down by deceit
Don't need me'

'I want to break free
I want to hold on
I want to take chances and fail and fall
To feel something, anything
So leave me be
And stay with me'

'And it burns
Father, it burns
I lie intertwined
With none by my side'

'And I hurt
Father, I hurt
Every castle I build
Wrecked down by deceit
Don't leave me'

Yup, that's it. Maybe a few changes and adds here and there could do something good but I'm actually quite satisfied with it.

One of my songs. Dont mind the misspellings

Leaves

Chorus (partial):
If I was a leaf, I would never leave my tree I would stay
.. I would stay hmm, I would stay

Verse 1:
Leave me alone,
You were the one who left me once, leave me now
Leave me alone,
You had your chance, though you missed that one
Leave me alone, Leave me alone

Chorus:
If I was a leaf, I would never leave my tree,
I would stay, in the winds of a could autumn-day
If I was a tree, I would stand here for years, just to be
Just to be..
I would stay, hmm, I would stay

Verse 2:
Please come back home,
It was my fault, that we split up
Please come back home,
I miss you more than anything I ever lost
Please come back home (weakening me), Oh come back home

Chorus:
If I was a leaf, I would never leave my tree,
I would stay, in the winds of a could autumn-day
If I was a tree, I would stand here for years, just to be
Just to be..
I would stay, hmm, I would stay

Climax Part:
Well, if you think, you are the one,
Who saved me,
Then please go and wash your hands of it
And if you think, you are the one,
Who healed me,
Then please go, and wash your sins away

I need time, I need time, I need time
Oh, leave me time, I need time, give it to me

Leaves fall.. Leaves fall.. hmm..
Leaves fall.. (closer than close), Leaves fall (oooh)
Leaves fall (I can’t stand it), Leaves fall (Take my air to breath)
Leaves fall (no..)

Refrain (end):
If I was a tree, I would stand here for years, just to be
But would you stay.. would you stay

This one is pretty deep. My daughter helped me write it a long time ago.

I know a song

About two frogs

Sitting on some logs

Down at the pond

Singing their song

Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit

And thatís my song

I hope it wasnít too long!

one

if i could take one last look
to keep forever in my memory
dont say a word
stand, smile
take my breath away
just like you always do
i could never get used to
how much beauty you possess
before you leave me
hear me confess

because my nights never end
and my days, stand still
iv loved from the first moment i saw you
i love you now, and i always, will

if i could say one last thing
i would share every memory
the times you stood
laughed, smiled
the times you took my breath away
just like only you could
i could never get used to how
much beauty you possessed
if youre gonna leave me,
hear me confess

that my nights never end
and my days, stand still
i love you more than life itself
if you dont know now
then you never, will..

^i'm not into smoking myself, but that was interesting.

can we use this as a place to showcase "poems/things that could potentially become lyrics?"

if so, i have this:

i have nothing to say
you stole all my thoughts away
and left me confused
left me battered
with my hands on my eyes
and my fingers clenched tight
to drive away the hits
taken upon my mind...
...they almost bring about tears, all these fears...

Breaking things

breaking down, breaking out and breaking up
breaking down, breaking out and breaking up
breaking down, breaking out and breaking up

I've been calling your name
I've been sucked into your dark and twisted tryst
I've been calling your name
I've been searching for someone or something or some time or some shift that I can blame

you've been relying on your luck
your good friends don't seem to give a damn
I've been playing on your trust
my heart's now ruled by my lust

headline, heartbreaker
headline, heartbreaker

I've been calling in vain
I've been sucked in and spat out whole again
I've been calling your name
I've been searching for someone or something or some time or some shift that I can blame

you've been relying on your luck
your good friends don't seem to give a damn
I've been playing on your trust
my heart's now ruled by my lust

headline, heartbreaker
headline, heartbreaker

breaking down, breaking out and breaking up
breaking down, breaking out and breaking up
breaking down, breaking out and breaking up

You're looking down at the ground,
and you're saying I've changed;
I don't touch you the same,
or play with your hair,
But it's too hard to pretend,
When that spark is not there

Chorus - x2
Choose Me,
Use Me,
Try not to confuse Me,
Cos You're all that I've got,
Yeah you're all that I've Got.

Writing more verses now; this particular girl has that quality of brining songs out of me easily, so i should be done soon.

tiny little movements

today i looked out the window
and what there did i see?
a thousand little blackbirds
staring back at me

they're hungry and they're bored
they're pecking at the ground
and with each little nod they say hello
but never make a sound

these tiny little movements
they speak so much more than words
in tiny little movements
i speak only to the birds


they may be kinda scary
when they're whirling in the sky
they may be ugly, may be dumb
but since when can humans just jump and fly?
i'd love to see you fly...

these tiny little movements
they speak so much more than words
in tiny little movements
i speak only to the birds

Forgive & Forget

Please stay with me, and please believe me; I know I am a mess,
Itís just every time my heart gets broken, I want it fixed a little less.
And please forgive me but you must understand me, Iíve been naive before.
And every time it falls apart and I loose more and more of my core.

I love your warmth and your kindness. I love your eyes and your smile,
But it worries me that I might be thinking of how hers were all the while.



ĎCause I believed the dream: that, despite how it seemed, we were meant to be.
I believed in fate and learned all too late, that loves just what you can see.
So the memories didnít leave when the air did breathe quite as quickly as you,
Still they linger; that trace of your finger on my arm still does continue.

You took your sweet time, to see you were fine enough to be with someone else
And isnít it funny, you know, honey, thatís what I said before all of this mess.
So, girl, forget me, Iím sure you regret me; maybe we werenít too smart,
But all too soon did you leave me wounded when you had a change of heart.

This victoryís hollow, but itís something to swallow; I was right - I loved you more.
Itís a small consolation in my bland desolation but itís helping me through the door.


This is my first time actually sharing anything I've written, this song is sort of in two parts, the first part talking to someone you are falling for and the second to someone you're still not quite over. I think the pattern of the second section was heavily influenced by the song "Sawdust & Diamonds" by Joanna Newsom althoigh I didn't mean it to be.

In case you can't tell I've had a rather bad break up recently, sorry for the depression but this is a Damien Rice forum after all..

Thanks Any suggestions on how you go about putting something to music? I can to an extent write music and lyrics but can't do the two together with any success.

Soul mates Ė Nikitaís song (Quick sketch)

You asked me in a whisper If I belive in soul mates
The quiver in your voice it kind of made me shiver
My answer was I am not so sure
The truth is not till I set eyes on you.

Ive had these chats before
But not with so much passion and belief
In the words that you express
I love your free will
And you insecure way


Nikita made me feel 200 feet tall
The first time she set her fingers to the board
They dance a song that I can not bring myself to sing
As she plays all the rights strings across my heart

And so the first thoughts of are a bright new dawn
A friendship built upon rock to last
But so often its easy grow apart
Old friends forget what made them new

So your right you have to fight for what you want
Cause no one is giving you anything for free
And I will be with you every step of the way
As long as you need me like those before

I hope you understand where we go from here
Because I can only dream its all I have
I hope you see that I try to be ture
My hope is all I can trust.

And so this is Nikitaís song
Written upon a stormy cloud
I hope she takes it in her stride
And when shes sad and lonely
Look back with a smile
Cause if she touched me like this in just a few hours
Imagine what she can do to till the end of her days

Haha check your PM's

I was quite proud of that one it just seemed to come into place. This is a extract of one that i have been working on and have picked back up it needs to have some serious editing done as always I find it strange when I show off my "work" its like I dont want to do this but I need honest opinions good and bad so

Edit - Actually I hated it when I really looked at it just now ignore it.

Ok try this one - "Throne of Dirt" all comments good and bad welcome.

---------

When will you see what I see?
When will you hear what I hear?
Can you feel what I feel?
Do you know what I do?

Stop pushing the issue,
Cause I cant give you the answer
Im the drug that you crave
But is this addiction killing you to?

You make issues out of the lines I do
But never question why?
I would explain
But would you understand

So we carry on
In our explosive rage
Suppressive domain
A eerie silence plays upon the brain
Like a piano in a mid-summer breeze

And you keep on reaching
In between your preaching
Its all in vain
But your still hoping

I cant make you the promise you want
I can only teach you that times a healer to
And let you listen as I repent
To the higher farther and the mother
Sins that you can only imagine

So step forward baby girl
Let me place this crown of thorns upon your head
Come and sit in my throne
Built of dirt and donít forget to be curt
Cause I will cut you down
And make you feel what I feel
See what I see
Hear what I hear
Know what I knowÖÖ

This is a song I wrote about 6 years ago when myself and 2 of my closest friends all got dumped by our respective partners at pretty much the same time. Instead of handling it with dignity or grace - we instead chose to get drunk and bitter. A lot. It is a very tongue in cheek song.

One Two For My Bitter Crew

We got dumped, not for the first time and I sure as sh*t know it wont be the last time
And I donít feel no pleasantness, I aint down with the happiness,
And I am bitter most of the time

So we be singing one two now for my crew
One two now for my crew

Chorus
One two for all the bitter people in this room
Three four by the end of this song youíll all be pissed
But Iíll be on the floor,
But Iíll be singing
One two for my bitter crew ese! Yeah.

One two for the bitter crew rude boy
One two for the bitter crew rude boy
You see weíre bitter and loud
Pissed up and proud
But do we care? Do we f*ck?
Bitter proud, pissed up and loud
Do I care? Do I f*ck?

Chorus

Well I go home alone, noone to call on the phone
But I will be alright, I will be alright
Iíll have a pot noodle, wank and a good cry,
Pot noodle, wank and a good cry,
Pot noodle, wank and a good cry.

Let me tell you what its like
Being male middle class and white
Pot noodle, wank and a good cry

Chorus.

Ok this is a bit more sincere - about my last, very painful breakup. She dumped me by the way.

Twist It Well

273 miles I loved you across
But now I cant find a line
So stick the knife in and push me to the kitchen floor
Thereís nothing youíre doing to me now that hasnít been done before
You twist it well, its ivory carved and so elegant, enclosed in your hand
And your voice, it hits me in surround
With all the lies about our so called wedding plans


Its cold down here on the tiles
on the terracotta dreams of our infancy
The intimacy we shared seems like it was in vain
and the words passed are now forming and becoming stains
So come on and twist it well, how you want and wrench it from me
All I can think about was that June
And that night with you as the bride, me as the groom.

Please give me some feedback - its not finished yet but I am working on it.

This is for a song called May, that I wrote out this way of seeing people the way we WISH they were, and then being disapointed and pissed at them for not being that?
You can listen to it here : http://sherifkarama.com/music.php , click on the title if you wanna leave comments


You needed a prey, I heard they're fun to break down
Saying you care, and make it so clear, 'cause crystal is
But cold has the strangest of tempers, so you better wait
'Cause hey, remember that blanket , how it kept the cold away from your feet

Right the wrong, and hope to be seen
Night is done, we'll drive to the sea
Bribe along, it's not as it seems, so
Light a gun, it's just you and me
And my...

So why did you happen to smile, cause that, usually means something don't it?
Dont rush your hands on me as if I couldn't see that..
May will never be, despite the white lights on your crown of spades
Maybe there's much more to see, but she's only looking out in space

Well I, believed, the wrong taste of sweet
Waltzs and hearts the sad secrecy
Cars and stars, belong to the sea
If I'm from Mars, I'm not who you'll be
In my dreams of May

Same, obscene, this phantom I've seen
The way, today, I play back the scene
I blame, the rain, it's not just the steam
Name the day, I'll hang at your feet

I think I like it, I've only just written it. It's on my myspace if you'd like to listen! The links in my sig.

Dreams

you fell through
but there's a thousand places out there
and a million things to do

but we don't need
all these little trivialities
and excuses not to be

to me, it's you
that keeps us stuck together
you're most definatly the glue

But we, I mean us
we must
keep trying

All I've seen
is you wandering in circles
jumping high to catch your dreams

it's hard but don't stop
if you never catch up with them
then you won't know what they mean

And that's true, i think
if we look a little closer
we'll see things we've never seen

But we, I mean us
we must
keep trying

'cos it's all laid out
in front of us
and we've got all these things
like love and trust
now if we reach out
and look around
we'll have feet that can't
stay on the ground

all these pages
make no sense
but it doesn't seem to make
any difference
And I don't know where we are
and I we don't who we are
and we might end up nowhere
or we may go really far

All I've seen
is you wandering in circles
jumping high to catch your dreams

it's hard but don't stop
if you never catch up with them
then you won't know what they mean

Yeah me to really nice.

I am halfway through this but it needs editing had a bad week.

I knew your poison
Before I bit your fruit
But im a greedy guy
I didnít leave a scrap

I tried writing a song
Having a bath under candle light
But I cant wash your stain off my skin
Your touch lingers upon my lips

Bit my ear
Told me I was special
I knew it had to end
But dawn came to quick

We spoke of Tudors
And what we wanted for tea
Of sights we had yet to see
You said we could never be
Uttered words I didnít want to hear.

Now your back with your man
And im left behind
Unable to shift your stain from my skin
No matter how hard I scrubbed

My girl kisses but I donít feel
And I hate myself
Cause she is a princess


-----

Now I am kind of stuck.

go and find someone
who loves the way your hair grows
and doesn’t ask but just knows
how your feeling

go and find someone
who knows just how to hurt you
abandon and desert you
believing in his virtue

and go and find someone
who likes Bob Dylan
And Leonard Cohen
and late mornings

then go and find someone
affected anti-bourgeois
driving round inside an old car
getting drunk and smoking gauloise

and take your patchwork quilt
your finest threads of silk
and all your tangled up emotions
and your semi crazy notions
and drink them with this wine
we haven’t got much time
then rise up with the sun
and go and find someone

go and find someone
to hold your hand through danger
then be the perfect stranger
when you wake up in the morning

go and find someone
to write you long love letters
and wear your ripped green sweaters
to warm him through the winters

go and find someone
to hold your many babies
your caravan of gypsies
bathed and baptised in the ganges


go and find someone
who’ll make you whisper soft and slow
Until you come like the winter snow
Crying in a blizzard

go and find someone
who’ll drink beer with the sunset
a Darwin harbour confidant
A fragile drifting dreamer

and take your patchwork quilt
and your finest threads of silk
and all your tangled up emotions
and your semi-crazy notions
and drink them with this wine
we haven’t got much time
rise up with the sun
and go and someone

and take your burnished dreams
you’re purest golden seams
cast them to the sunsets
hide them in your daughter’s pockets
and remember just one thing
we never shared a ring
this love is still undone
but go and find someone

I made this on the spot .



Blood and brimstone glimmer
my already faltered heart, darkened
by your alien light.
All the stars in this universe
Purple and light Green
Couldn't warn me about your curse
your insaciable passion, your lilac lemon.




Your soul burns the very embers of my heart.
the charcoal of my soul.the smell of cinder and rain
ruby red in water.




Faltered mind splinters,
As the red burning fire swells
The new tide washes no new message.
But a fresh hint of your hidden and hewn beauty
your unshone pearl.




Each New Golden dawn
Brings you and I closer.
Until the Charcoaled, Black of night .
