I JUST wrote this one, so it's not perfect. xD But I think it flows better than the last one. It's called "Love Leaks Out".. or One More Fear. I can't decide.

When I was feeling down, lonely and so damn dark,
You brought out your bright sun, igniting my dreary heart
And I was blind from you, just clouded by all of my fears
But you calmed down my skies, and now it's just much more clear

I'd give up my dreams just to be in yours again
The flames are glowing bright, but you burst into tears
It was always meant to be

I told you I loved you, you told me that you're just scared
Of being oh-so close, to an, another soul;
And I accepted you, and everything that you are
Cause one day this will change, it's just one more fear.

I'd give up my dreams just to be in yours again
The flames are glowing bright, but you burst into tears
You and me might fade away
Be back another day

..guitar stuff..

The days are growing long, my nights are growing shorter
I worry that you'll leave, but i know it's just imagination
I know we'll be alright, it's just for the best.
You said I broke your heart, but love still leaks out.

I'd give up my dreams just to be in yours again
The flames are glowing bright, but you burst into tears
It was always meant to be
You and me might fade away
Promise we won't end this way.

^^ Honestly, that's really good. It's not confusing or extremely metaphorical, but it's beautifully written. And for that, two thumbs up!

Ok, I wrote this one about a book I'm reading "The Voice in the Wind". The song will seem confusing so I'll give you the gist of it. It was dated sortly after Christ's death. There was a man who had everything he ever wanted but still craved more. Then he met a small and quiet slave who was "ugly" but had an aura that drew him to her. Long story short, the man's sister killed her out of jealousy. This song is called "Hadassah"

Struck down by many nations
Beaten and bruised beyond recognition
Ignited from the start and the world made you scatter
But the gleam in her eyes says that this world doesn’t matter
Flooded with every high imagination
The world and its lust at his fingertips
Exalted and esteemed in the faces of man
But he’s slipping slowly with nothing to grip

They search for the voice in the wind
It’s dancing on her tongue
She’s found her cure
He searches inside himself
And inside the beautifully broken vessel
Of the voice in the wind

Pressure is building as pretenders try
To rip the mask off, but she has nothing to hide
Satisfaction is fleeting, but her purity is demeaning
To all who feel guilt inside
His shell begins to crumble
As her faith is higher than the mountains
He will search forever
If he believes God lies in her


Yeshua, Yeshua
She screams into the sky
Her demons lay in waiting
His hope crumbles as she dies

Wow, this is absolutely stunning. I mean, the lyrics on this thread aren't bad or anything, they just seem...standard, very 'by the book', but this - this took me by surprise. Amazing, great interpretation.
How's the book? I'm intrigued.

Wow, thank you! I was a little unsure about it so I'm extremely glad!

The book is a-maz-ing - the best I've read in my life. I highly recommend it.

Hey people

I haven't been here in a REALLY long time. Eh...I need to update.

I will be posting more lyrics...I've wrote a lot *sigh* and they're all about the same topic.

I'm sorry, I will read the lyrics that was posted when I was gone. I will do that.

Btw, does anyone know a good song that a girl can sing (without it being higher than...a bit lower than the chorus of pressure-paramore?) and has a good guitar part? Because my friend and I are performing something for school (which is in January) called Cafe Bulldog so she's singing and I'm playing guitar but she can't sing very high (she can't sing paramore, flyleaf, etc) and it has to be appropriate for school (We were going to do Remembering Sunday - All Time Low but it indicates that the guy's an alcoholic and...you can figure it out..) but she can sing low and so we were thinking of doing You had me at hello - A day to remember but what do you ppl think? Any suggestions?

Haha, sorry that was kinda long...

hey, i dont think this song is that good, but ive got a bunch written down so i might as well put some up, and constructve criticism is always good. So im putting this up knwoing its not good but hoping for some pointers, this is in a VERY different tone than i normally write. This seems more lighthearted and free, which is not my writing type, but i thought it might be interesting to get some info back on this diffrent song....

Disappear

turn into another street
its a different place, and the air that we breath
ut still same old faces and same old sounds
that make out feet stay on the ground
you walk the paved pathway free
but not truely until you sever all links with society

you'll see that the wind is much less crisp
the bite is gone and the air is clear
so why not take a risk
you've got nothing to lose and nothing dear
and all the time in the world

so come with me, pack your bag and lets run
no job, no house, now life is just fun
we'll watch the sun rise every morning
different places, your life is imprtant
we'll see what it is to really feel alive
and discover our own ways we have to survive
plase just run with me (run with me)
you can believe andything you see

now the city lights are gone, we see stars
and live with nature, this palce is all ours
we'll sit there with nothing
and leanr what it is to mean something

to someone else
we'll come some self worth
im sure it sells

so come with me, pack your bags and lets run
no job, no house, now life is just fun
we'll watch the sun rise every morning
different places, your life is important
we'l see what it is to really feel alive
and discovre our own ways we have to survive
please just run with me (run with me)
you can belive anything you see

yes i can see, you ahve faith in me
so jst take my hand, i understand
how you feel today, but its okay
just run
just run
just run
just run!!

so come with me, pack your bags and lets run
no job, no house, now life is just fun
we'll wach the sun rise every morning
different places, your life is important
we'll see what it is top really feel alive
and discover our own ways we have to survive
please just run...
so come with me, pack your bags and lets run
no job, no house, now life is just fun
we'll watch the sun rise every morning
diffrent places, your life is important
we'll see what it is to really feel alive
and discoverour own ways we have to survive
please just run with me (run with me)
just run with me (run with me)
just run with me (run with me)
you can believa everything that you see
please just run with me

I had the same problem a while back, so I get you.
I'd suggest something like 'Attention Attention' By The Academy Is... or maybe 'Smother Me' by The Used if she's willing to sing unaccompanied for the first verse, or with a piano if you've got access to one. The guitar part on Smother Me only comes in for the second verse onwards, so yeah.
Hope that helps. =]

rofl. i just said i wouldn't write another song, but. here's another, for the band i just started. Broken Rhymes.

Bon voyage; It's time to leave
The times we shared I can't believe
Are over, they're over
The time is up to feel depressed
I wrote this song about our mess
In case you haven't guessed
I just wanna say

I'd give up my dreams to see you again
I worry you'll leave, but you've left and then
I'm siting here, all alone
And my last chance has faded

All those times have inspired this
Some broken rhymes with a couple twists
It's over, we're over.
Before this ends, I think you'll know
Just how I feel, the cuts still show
In case you haven't noticed
I'm not the one to blame

I'd give up my dreams to see you again
I worry you'll leave, but you've left and then
I'm siting here, all alone
And my last chance has faded
_mute pick_
I'd give up my dreams to see you again
I worry you'll leave, but you've left and then
I'm siting here, all alone
And my last chance has faded

I worry you'll leave, but you're long gone
I gave it my all, but my heart's not that strong
We're still here, back-to-back
And I always knew we'd fade
My heart's not that strong
Not that strong

i just wrote this, and believe me, it sucks. :/

ABUSE ME PERFECT (BETTER)

ever notice how everything i write is depressing? Rolling Eyes
so this one's about abuse. some people (and this is really, really sad) believe that if you let someone abuse you, you'll become a better person, and that's the view i wrote it from.

i need to be better!
better, better
i need to be better!
better, better
i can be so much better than this

i should be so much better
so hit me, hit me, make me better
i'll be perfect once we're through.
you're so much better than me,
you make me better by abusing me.

abuse me perfect,
i should be perfect,
abuse me perfect,
i should be so much better than this
fucking abuse me,
i need to be perfect!

black and blue are my favorite colors
it's been like this before
i need to be perfect
you can make me better than me

all this is making me better
but why does it have to hurt?
abuse, abuse,
this will make me perfect
that's what i need to be

abuse me perfect,
i should be perfect,
abuse me perfect,
i should be so much better than this
fucking abuse me,
i need to be perfect!

this does nothing for me
i'm not better at all
abuse won't make me perfect
are you fucking insane?

don't touch me with that belt
i'm fine the way i am
i can't be perfect
you won't help me fix anything
i'm so much better than me

try to abuse me perfect,
i shouldn't be so perfect,
don't try to abuse me perfect,
i can't get any better than this
just don't abuse me perfect
can't you see i can't be perfect?

i'm not much better
better, better
i didn't get better
better, better
you can't get any better
better, better,
it won't get better.

ok so here's a song i wrote to go with a video my band and i wanted to do we just didn't have a song that fit haha anyway it's called if i died today would you still remeber me tomorrow (duh) so read it if you like and tell me what you think you don't have to but it'd be cool to see how i could improve...


If I died today would you still remember me tomorrow?
You’ve already let me drown in this endless sorrow.
Day after day,
The pain would stay,
Embedded deep within,
But it’s hardly a sin.

To feel all alone,
To wish to pick up the phone,
And call you,
To tell you I love you.
To want you to say it back,
A wish that is black.
Lost its sparkle and its shine,
Baby it won’t be fine.

If I died today would you still remember me tomorrow?
You’ve already let me drown in this endless sorrow.
Day after day,
The pain would stay,
Embedded deep within,
But it’s hardly a sin.

You were my everything,
You really were and now this sting.
When I hear your name,
To feel ashamed,
I couldn’t stop you but only let you go.
But, I want you to know.
It’s hard for me,
To think of what used to be.
What we should’ve become,
This all makes me numb.

If I died today would you still remember me tomorrow?
You’ve already let me drown in this endless sorrow.
Day after day,
The pain would stay,
Embedded deep within,
But it’s hardly a sin.

But I want you to know.
It’s hard for me,
To know you won’t be there for me.
That if I died today you won’t remember me tomorrow.


there it is =]

I'm back with more lyrics!

Trainwrecks & Sunsets

This one's about how love is meaningless these days.

3 words can't mean much less to me
We're all nothing but worthless cheats
Love these days needs some rehab
But we're all having a love relapse

Player, play her 'cause we all know it
You lied to her and said you'd die for her
The feeling's not so mutual, it's usual
We've already gone through this
So why does she feel like shit?

Everything's changed,
It never used to be like this
We all go together like trainwrecks & sunsets
You only like her for her jeans
(Wanna try 'em on?)

Four letter word that means "lie"
Is that all you can say to me?
You're just another word in their book,
None of them can take back what you took from them

Was it good, was it great?
You're probably hiding that you're gay!
I've heard it before,
You've seen it before
It's not front-page news anymore.


Everything's changed,
It never used to be like this
We all go together like trainwrecks & sunsets
You only like her for her jeans
(Wanna try 'em on?)

I can't trust you
I don't know you
I don't love you
I don't know you!


Everything's changed,
It never used to be like this
We all go together like trainwrecks & sunsets
You only like her for her jeans
(Wanna try 'em on?)

What the hell?

Heyy
Well this is the 2nd song I've finished that I acknowledge, I don't like the other... 2? I don't really like the last one either but I have to admit that one exists cos I recorded it for my music composition =P
Anyyyway here goes:

Do you remember when I was young
enough for you to comb my hair
with your fingers
and how i'd always scream
please let go your hurting me
You'd say that part, you break my heart
I cried, you wiped the tears from my eyes
I'd find, myself in your arms
Your mouth at my ear
Screaming hush I'm sorry in a whisper
For those few minutes I was yours but
that was before you knew
that was before I told you
That was when I shook the hand that closed the door on me.
And your still gonna go?
Well if your leaving then you may aswell know
that every day I miss the person you can be
and every day I miss the ones where you still cared about me
I know that things will never feel like that again
you promised me that we
would be okay but now you're broken.

Bridge:
And if my fingers smeared red on backlit buttons and I needed you
You'd never come you'd send him wouldn't you?

Chorus:
Well I don't need your love it's okay if I hurt
and I only need one tie to keep me on this earth
Mommy your bad inside
you know it hurts for more than just a little while
don't you see I'm gone?
don't you see it's wrong?
don't you see I shouldn't hate you?
I just want you to know
that a smile wont make it all okay
3 words wont make this go away

Musical Break

Bridge
Your face so close to mine, turning red its killing time!

Breakdown:
I can't change the fact that I'm a mistake
Oh momma don't.hurt.me
Momma I.have.needs
I'm just a kid
and if I do something wrong I'll try to fix it
but you gotta understand that I can't fix this
If you want I'll change the things that make me me
Just so that you accept me
I'll change anything I can if it makes you like me

Chorus

Outro:
I can't forgive you it's a matter of self-respect
I feel I'm running just as far as I can get
I'm getting sick of you
and all the things you've put me through
I'll tear this sheet, cos I wanna tear your life out from your feet

(acapella) I want to ruin you
You've ruined me.

Play It Again Sam

are you *bleepdontknowificancussonthissite* ready for revolution
your mothers never married and
your institutionalized
for it
every rubble roshers dead
and you name it
i i i said
your brothers getting worse
and it is
harming the lights in your city
in your city-

lies like fires burn
and dreams like lovers fade away
yes lies like fires burn
and dreams like lovers fade away
fade away
fade away
fade away-

what do you now
now that you know
and its getting hotter
day by day
day by day
day by day-

creatures and near-do-wells
how does it feel
to be part of this
circle of fighting fire with fire
and watching all of us burn
with no peace in sight


lies like fires burn
yes lies like fires burn
my eyes are forced to watch these burns heal
and burn again
lies like fires burn
yes lies like fires burn
yes lies like fires burn
and thats how all of this goes down
lies like fires burn
lies like fires burn
lies like fires
lies like fires
they burn

lets get the hell out of wheatfield
as it all burns down

my eyes
wont see
the fire for the flame
and its hard with heat
to let this go
and its getting worse
so like the flame
lets burn this town
and let it go

lies like fires burn
and dreams like lovers fade away
yes lies like fires burn
and dreams like lovers fade away
fade away
fade away
fade away-
(a part of is wishing that you were here
and a part of me is wishing that flame
would claim then dissapear so if i can
ever let this go im gonna need-a-someone else)

lies like fires burn
and dreams like lovers fade away
yes lies like fires burn
and dreams like lovers fade away
fade away
fade away
fade away-

I'm not the best at writing songs (i'm better at poems), but here's a little verse I came up with a couple days ago:

Nothing lasts forever
So lets share some laughs together
Every memory means so much to me
We only live once and we grow up too fast
So make the best days of your life!

I really can't write songs for nuts because it takes so much effort just to glean a single line that I find decent. So here's the only song that I've actually completed and did not give up on. Comments would be greatly appreciated. (:

My Apocalypse
Verse 1:
They were drowned in the river of misgivings
They were buried alive in lies
They were trapped in a cage with the snakes of your venom
With their haunting, pleading cries

Funny then how I was the one
Who had everything to lose
Who found the enigma of your masquerade
Behind those icy blues

Supposed Chorus:
You could dance your way out of catastrophe
You could ensnare me with your thorns
And leave me trapped in this fatality
In this labyrinth of your scorn.

Verse 2:
Swimming in this endless sea of carnage
Devastation has an ethereal glow
You pillage and burn through artery and vein
Where the tears of red shall flow

Solace I sought in those chemical bugs
That devoured me from the inside
Perched on this tree of tragedy
I watched our stars collide

How long will it hold?
How long before they find you and beg you for more?
How long?
How long?

You will be the death of me.
You will be the death of me.
You will be the death of me.
You will be the death of me.

DARLING (CLEAN ME OFF)

Darling, can you take responsibility?
If you can’t, I hope you know that
You’ll be cleaning me off the ceiling, yeah.
You’ll be cleaning me off the ceiling.

And has anybody told you lately?
You look so much better in the dark,
Yeah you’re so beautiful in the dark.

And it’s all because of you
That I paint the ceiling red all by myself,
Somehow, someday darling you’ll see
Just what you do to me
You’ll clean me off the ceiling soon.

And do you see the color combination
That tattoos my body
And keeps me at attention?
Do you see it, darling?
I hope you see this now.

And has anybody told you lately?
You look so much better in the dark,
Yeah you’re so beautiful in the dark.

And it’s all because of you
That I paint the ceiling red all by myself,
Somehow, someday darling you’ll see
Just what you do to me
You’ll clean me off the ceiling soon.

Darling, can you take responsibility?
Will you clean me off the ceiling?
Will you see what you do to me?
Yeah, what you do to me.

(Darling) Do you see what you do to me?
(Darling) Do you see that I paint the ceiling red for you?
(Darling) Do you see what you do to me?
(Darling) Do you see the tattoos you leave?

And has anybody told you lately?
You look so much better in the dark,
Yeah you’re so beautiful in the dark.

And it’s all because of you
That I paint the ceiling red all by myself,
Somehow, someday darling you’ll see
Just what you do to me
You’ll clean me off the ceiling soon.

You look so much better to me,
In the dark, in the dark,
It’s where we belong.
You look so much better in the dark.

Mmmm.... well, this is strange, but hey, it could potentially be something XD It doesn't have any particular tune yet, but meh.

Schizophrenia

I know you’re hurting –
I gave up a long time ago,
But you never got past square one

Did you know about the knife in your hands?
Did I see the stains already on it?
How many fell before it?
It’s always such a tragic accident to you

(When will you learn that treachery will only hurt you in the end?)
And I wish I weren’t so far past caring

Now you’re locked in a cage
Like an monster,
Oh, your rage
When you’re trapped in the corner
With your back to the wall
Will we finally see who you are after all?

So pretty and perfect and dreadful –
Maybe you should just stop trying,
It gets you nowhere

It’s the law of gravity -
You’re the only one dancing to this tune
At the masquerade ball
Soon you’ll have to trip and
Fall

(You never did pay much attention – don’t you know that chameleons don’t turn completely invisible?)
I wish I weren’t so far past caring

You’re locked in that cage
Like an beast,
So much rage
You’re trapped in the corner
With your back to the wall
We finally see who you are after all

Falling
Falling down
Falling down
Falling

How long will this take
How far down can you possibly sink
Before you

Hit

the

floor

Darling, your throat must be
Oh-so raw from all the screaming
(all those tears)
These scars can’t be covered by gloves
Or makeup, or your wishes, dear,
They’re still bleeding
You’re still bleeding

(Falling down,
falling down
down, down, down)

You can’t stand on your own
You’re falling down
But I can’t help you anymore

We can’t save you this time
