lies

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

you say you know me,
say im pretty,

i dont know when 
and i dont know why 
but when i hear your voice i just wanna cry 
your always saying you care
but its all lies no matter how hard i need to believe it to be 
you showed them all 
when I didn’t know

because youre never around when i need you there

Seasons

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

V1:
A new beginning, a new start
is what I need
The falling leaves and autumn rain is all I see
Seasons come and go,
But I’m still here
But lately there has been a change in atmosphere

Chorus:

Can’t you see, I’m changing like the seasons
They say that grass is always greener
on the other side, but why
can nothing stay the same.

V2:
The halls were filled with music floating through the air
With warnings ringing loudly...

lost without you

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

waves of dead roses
swallow me
as i drown

i had a million words 
to say to you
now there’s nothing left

i’m a rainbow without colors
a bird without wings
a flower without petals
and i’m lost without you

i’m a rainbow without colors 
a bird without wings
a flower without petals
and i’m lost without you

now i slowly 
fade away
as you leave

you used to be there 
for me
now you’re gone

i’m a rainbow without colors ...

I Love You?

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

We were always friends from the very beginning
We admitted our feelings in year 3
I'd loved you from the beginning
Our love had grown like a tree

We never broke up yet you had moved on
And we kept coming back
You asked out other girls other than me

I still loved you
But you forgot me
I will love you
You have forgotten me
So I sink into a fit of misery

High school came and yet I...

Let Me Hold You

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

I see a tear roll off your face
as I hold you in a tight embrace
hoping that I’ll make you feel okay
I know that you want to go
and I know that you feel low
but trust me, there is no other way
so listen when I say

you need me just as much as I need you
so let it be and let me do what I need to
I love you even though you feel sad ...

I tell you now.

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

I'll tell you now because there is no other time.
The world is coming to a end and your on the front line.
And it is all because of mankind.

When the storms rule the seas.
And the fires roar through the trees.
When there is no more light.
And you search but no hope in sight.

The humans have ran out to space.
To avoid there own disgrace.
disappeared with out a trace.
And left earth in its eternal...

Goodbye

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

You told me you loved me
You told me you cared
My heart belonged to you
But you split it in two
There's nothing I can do
When all I see is you
 
And all the words that you said
Still echo inside my head
Was everything a lie?
So hard to say goodbye
 
I gave you my all
You formed a waterfall
Of tears from my eyes
I'm so sick of goodbyes
All I feel is pain ...

A Mind of Its Own

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

There's a black hole
And she's in it alone
Chains from the depths clinging to her
Pulling her down slow but steady

Darkness surrounding her,
Light from above blinding her eyes
She thinks she should stay
She's come to realise that
The darkness is her home now

You don't know what goes on in my head
And if I'll be honest I'm not sure myself
It's a mess
A confusion 
All an illusion
Just fogs and clouds
And noises so...

Lavender

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

You got that lavender aroma
Seeing it in your aura
Scared to show off your colors,
but stunning when you’re in that light
And some nights gonna hit us colder
But that’s when you start to bloom
‘Cause all my evening blues,
Blush violet when I’m with you, whoa

You’re there and you’re gone
Where you going? Back to that rip in your heart
Tryna pick it apart, shooting my shot in the dark
Lucky I landed the mark

Fall With Me

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

{verse 1}
I'm nervous to see you
But the thing is I miss you
If it was easier to talk 
in person or not, I think I would fall 
for you and you completely

{verse 2}
Sometimes doubts swirl in my head,
and worries stir in my heart,
but I can't let you go,
I can't let you go.

{chorus}
So take my hand and let's slow dance,
forget your peer's eyes and accusing glares,
take a chance and fall...

living in books

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

how will I ever be missed
when I'm too attached to characters who don't even exist
I know it's not easy to take a risk
but these two worlds cannot coexist

for it's easier to care
from the comfort of your own armchair
the words lift off pages and last through the ages
but will it ever be enough

oh oh take me to a world where I'm the centre of my story
I'll always retain the glory

If this is all there is

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019


Now comes the lonely summer
Now is the time to rediscover me again
Now is the trail to predict a lifetime
Will I revel in prophecy or sin?

Soon I will be but a memory
And hopefully, something will trigger it
Soon I will be but a distant shadow
Asking you still if this is it

I am naught

But the walk amongst the flames
I am naught
But the chin held high into the rain

I am nothing more ...

Carousel

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

Carousels and band tees
That's just how I'm living
I ain't gotta worry about the future, no baby
Long walks and slurpee runs
Slipping away from time
I'm not the kid I was before

Just a figment of what I could be
This adolescence is driving me crazy

Disarray, Disobey
But I swear, I'm a'okay
Just riding this tidal wave

One daunting thing into another
Time flies so fast, the days blur together
Friends fade so quick you'd think I’m...

Verse 1

Little one, do I have a story to tell you
Where bigger hands reach, they stretch farther than the moon
There’s dialogue, it sounds so blah, though you’ll understand it soon
When the sunshine parts, the wrinkles start—oh they start to bloom
...They bloom...

Verse 2
The plot, it starts, as your dad parts says “It won’t be long”
And you’ll see him there, stroke his curly hair, but something must be wrong

I smile and look at you, 
and you see me too.
Giving me these butterflies,
without having a clue.

I Smile and say "Hi" to you,
fake smile which you portray.
And I will never know why or
what went wrong with us.

So tell me why,
why can't we work this out?
Baby, I need you now,
so please don't let me down.

I can't stand it now,
every day has its doubts.
Its always got me down, ...

I wonder how our feelings grow
Ain't it strange
The places our thoughts can go
Outer space
Wondering what path 
I should take
It's strange to think about

Right now I hate reality
And this life
I'm trying hard not to repeat
Things twice
But mistakes keep...

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

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,

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...

Frozen in time,

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. 

Clock strikes four,
