Best Friend

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

I knew from day one,
The way you tripped over Kayden at the door.
Oh, it was Salem,
The magic in your eyes as you got off the floor

I knew then that we'd be friends
And wreak havoc on this town

Oh, you're a godsend,
Hold my hand on the way down!

Whenever there's a catastrophe
I'll be your ghostbuster, mystery machine
I'll be right next to you if you need me

Wherever you step
High or low
I'll...

For You

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

I know it's been a hard time, 
Coming back to life. 

My love was true, 
But a broken heart, is all I got. 
Left the shards, for you to keep, 
All your pockets full, 
And you're just scrolling through. 

I gave it to you, 
It was all I could give, 
It was all I had, 
For you. 

And the days were wasted starlight, 
But the moon was bright, 
On that night. 
You stuffed them full, 
Taking all you could, 
Cuz...

This is my promise

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

If I could hold you forever the way I am now;
If I could love you this purely, I could just show you how
To be strong, to be constant, you are who you are:
Just trust in yourself and I know you’ll go far
 
I’ll be the one here who holds your head high;
Who flies when you’re laughing and falls when you cry,
I’m your comfort, your rock, my love cannot be wrong:
You must make your...

Wanderlust

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

On our way to our date, we stopped by our fav'rite place to grab a drink
I said, "Are you sure we're not going to be late?"
And you said, "We're not far away"
So we traded our tales of more innocent days
When our only worries were our plates
Then I called you your name
And I looked you in the face
And I said, "Do you ever miss yesterday?

"Do you ever wonder where the good times go? ...

Frozen in time,
I know I can't rewind,
I know I can't turn the page back in this book. 
Life is a game,
And time is gambling,
I'm not addicted, but I'm hooked. 

So hands of time, let me go,
Let me have a future that I don't know.

[VERSE 1]
You’re my sun,
The wind behind my sails,
The waves beneath my boat.
The winking star
That guides my eyes.
You’re my best, my worst.
My grace, my inelegance.

[CHORUS]
Where have you been all my life?
Building castles
Or climbing trees
An azure promise
Of sea salt breeze.
Dance with me
In all seven seas.

One-third milk and
Two-thirds expresso
You know me well.
Tangling your fingers in my hair

Lasting

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

Verse 1
If time is money,
You're my investment.
I'm filthy rich with love,
And on you, I'd spend it.

If time is a measurement,
I'm counting each second, 
Recording each memory we share,
And loving each moment.

Pre-Chorus
And if time were to start from scratch,
I'd be fine with that.

Chorus
I loved you, 
You know that I did,
I love you,
Right now, yes I do,
I'll love you,
In every possible way,
Right 'till the end...

Undead Masquerade

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

Hypnotic eyes, they tell me what to do, 
but it’s the fangs that make me move. 
With whispered words and beatless hearts,
I can’t help but fall apart. 
In the world of Dracula's kin, 
those in power wear cloaks of sheepskin. 
I can't outrun their growing darkness, 
but I need to feel the sun again. 

It’s the undead masquerade; it’s been going on for centuries. 
Undead masquerade, every policy's a new grenade.
Undead masquerade, the renegades will be hunted.

You lay on your back
With your eyes fixed on me
Look away, my cruel dear
There is nothing I can do to save you

Your opponent's a champion.
He's never lost a brawl
Still you fight
You've got hope
But still no chance at all

And your eyes flash with fear
And your teeth grind in pain

Lionhead

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

1st verse
Palius in your head
Silver in your tongue,
A trembling grimace
tearing down the throne
(Hey!)
Kintsugi vases
They shine under the sun,
Gold pouring from the cracks,
Carnations weighing down the guns,
(Hey!)

Chorus
Stand up tonight, ruby red
Stand up and cry out, lion head
We've seen how much you've bled 
We've felt the healing scars on your neck 

One breath at a time, ruby red 
Time washes your back, lion head
We've felt how deep...

Like my history’s always gonna last
I can’t leave it behind
No matter how hard I try, ‘cause
 
Moments hold me in their grasp
Don’t move, they tell me
Just relax
You’ll be okay in my hands
 
For a second I believe it
Until I’m pulled back into the present
Remember all the time I wasted
 
Thinking I was gonna be okay
Falling into the monotony of everyday

Unfinished Book

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

The book lies open,
Resting on the table,
Pages never turned,
Chapters never read.
As the storm rages on,
Individual snowflakes,
coating the ground,
Hide rivers of tears,
That are drying in the wind.

And it will lie there waiting,
Not afraid for what is next,
Not afraid of its time hidden,
Nor times it was locked away.
It waits for the day it's noticed,
When a new chapter can be written.
When someone understands
The story it can hold.

Behold...

She'll Be Fine

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019


(verse)
Never knew where she could go
Eyes led astray and I know
Leaning out, towards the dusk
Lie no boundaries she can trust 
But I smile, close my eyes, she'll be fine
I take a breath and fall in lakes
Through my eyes she suffocates
Forests rise, burn to stone
Prophecies written in gold
She can wander but the fate will bring her home

And as she's stuck in her room unsure which way to fly

Verse 1:
An invitation came in the mail to the masquerade
On the other side of town
I decided to go, so with shaking hands,
I picked out my best gown
The day arrived, I walked into the room
Standing tall, head held high
Amongst the sea of glitz and glamour
To which I belonged at least tonight
Pre-Chorus:
Saw you make your way across the floor
No idea who you were
Stopped in front of me, held out a...

Some say I'm a failure,

The Flower We Love Unfurls Under The Starlight

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

Intro
Sing Hallelujah to the Lord
Take my land to Your peaceful realm

Verse 1
Scattering white
Resounding in the silent night
Dreams of millions
In the darkness they ignite

We will take valour to fight
Let our sound resonates as lucent light

Verse 2
A yellow coat
On the rim he stands on top
He ought to go
But the rain it never stops

Time turns daylight to nightfall
This land is not I used to know anymore

Not sure if I'd ever see you again
