Verse One:
I’ve been here
For all of seven years
I've been searching for your heart
I did everything you could’ve asked
How long will this last?
Cos
I keep going back and forth
Think you love me
Then you don’t
Opened the doors;
You smiled my way
Offered my hand but you
Pushed it away
Everyone says you're friendly
You've drawing personality
Times were once different
That's why I gotta get out
Don't think of our past
We've forgiven...

I'll Try, Darling

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017

VERSE ONE:
They looked at us
Like we weren't even there
Not a look glanced with love
Not a smile sent with care

We were flying, darling
And they forced us to land
They swept our feet from under us
Like castles in the sand

CHORUS:
We tried to be different
We tried to be sane
We were trying to change the scene
While still stuck in the frame

So now I'll try darling
To finish what you started
To...

Long Forgotten Towns

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017

Hopeless, 
I stand
At the corners
Of long-forgotten roads.
There like a specter
A specter I became.

And at the edges of loss and fame
I will hear you call my name
Singing by the open doors
Closing up the world's old sores
How I live to see them close
The world's disgraces, all forgo
The world's graces in repose
Watch them by there, as they show
Watch them by there, as they show 

Ghosts of towns long forgot
Listen...

It's been two long years since I've seen their faces. 
Haven't seen my familyy. 
No one's here to replace you
Letters I write don't mean anything.

I want to go go go go go back home
I'm gonna go go go back hoome. 
My son will say da da da da's coming home. 
Now here I go.

She was twelve years old, yah twelve years oold. 
And I know, know, know that...

A Story That I Hear

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017

Chorus 
There's a story that I hear,
Wispered whenever I walk under a tree,
Shouted whenever I walk through a forest.

A story of love,
A story of sacrifice,
A story of Life.


A story of the greatest love,
A story of the man who loved me,
A story of the love given to all.

Chorus 

A story of the ultimate sacrifice,
A story of the man who died for me,
A story of the sacrifice made for all.

Forever in my heart

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017

I look up to the night sky,
my heart yearns for you,
I think about you,
every single day.
Your chestnut mane of hair,
Your bright intelligent eyes,
Your loving heart,
your caring self.

I, I just can't get enough of you,
of you my darling.
My head is filled with thoughts of you from day to night,
I just can't sleep,
waiting 'til i see you again,
holding on until the time arrives.

People mock me,
'bout my darling,...

My Dream To Me

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017

the stars, alight tonight
spots of hope in the dark night sky
just bright enough
 
blazing a path as they fell
maybe once they had purpose as well
to guide us
 
please tell me
is there somewhere where wishes see light?
please show me
is there somewhere where dreams shine bright?
please answer
is there someway you can return mine?
 
i convinced myself i had a dream
i had a reason for everything
that wasn’t you

Sweet Night

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017

2 steps, thats all he had left
He'd taken 24 chances so she wouldn't forget
She had one word left between her lips
But he quieted her with a dying kiss
Isn't it funny? 
How quick things can change

It was a sweet night 
To make her forget
And that dark light
Had already quit
So he couldn't get better

Hold tight
Thats what they forget
All those silent words
Left hanging on lips
He took, one breath a second...

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017

I've never written a song before
okay, that's kind of a lie
I wrote one once in 7th grade
and i wrote it for a guy

you might say it counts
and that may very well be
but i meant the song for the guy's girlfriend
I just changed all the pronouns to he

i walked up to his girlfriend
I admit, I was kinda scared
she was the prettiest thing i had ever seen 
brown eyes and curly haired

Felt goin down down down

I'm Really Good At Rap

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017

Slow as tree sap when tapped
Tap dance from the front to the back of the class
Never will excel at math I’m not a psychopath
I’ll transpire into a teenage MacGyver
Fix feelings no payment required
Take pliers pull a tooth out
Cause if it’s loose now than the truth's out
Hope you lose now
Like syracuse down makes the news now
On blue's clues with no new clues
I’ll shoot you with a excuse
I just hate you...

Our Light

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017

I was a fire, you were my ice.
I would alight, but you never fight.
When things got dark I locked you out.
Won't let you in, and I need you now.

I was a fire, I was a flame.
You were my ice, my wind, and rain.
I thought you loved me then and now.
I was wrong don't know what to do now.

I was a fire I was a flame.
You were ice, its such a shame.

Yours hands in mine does not feel enough
Nor does your warm voice in my hair
How can you say its for the best
When you say 
you'll be going away

If I could ,I would undo all my mistakes
If I could ,I'll buy back all the times we had
Only if I could,I'll lock you in my heart so you could never go away

I've been Reckless!

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017

I've been reckless,
But I'm not a rebel,
Without a cause,
My weakness is only I can,
See my flaws,
As I chase my dreams,
That will never come true,

Oh..oh..oh..,
I've been reckless,
There's no second chances,
That's just make belief,
I've made a mess of things,
And now it's time,
To clean it up,
Dust myself off,
And move on..

There's no turning back,
Going to get,
My life back on track,
Stop looking at the glass half...

Betrayal

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017

Betrayal
You’re not that smart
Looking like a nark  
Who wishes his friend was a shark
All you can do is bark
Asking me for a new start
You say I’m trash
But in reality you know you’re talking about yourself
So should I start over and tell you again
So you can notice you have 0 friends
We can go again
But it’ll leave you with no end
Your rap is a fantasy
It can never be on...

Verse One: Dried tears stick to my face, thinking of your unapologetic smile
Staring up at the ceiling, wishing nothing ever changed
Try to get up, break the trance you've put me in
But nothing works, you're not my Prince Charming

Pre-Chorus: Flashbacks, memories, they flutter past
Memories, moments, they flash past in...

Just For Today

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017

Dear friend here I am again
Closing my eyes, counting to ten
You say, hey, just breathe the pain away
Today will soon be gone, but tomorrow will always come
It’s just for today 

Help me, I’m sinking, and I’m sick of thinking
There’s a point each day, when the mask falls away
And my demons come out to play
I can’t fall anymore, I’m already on the floor
You say, hey, today will soon be gone, it will soon...

The Birds

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017


Verse 1:
I got all this anger
Boiling up inside of me
And I can't help but scream
And scream and scream 
And there's nothing good in this life no more
All anybody seems to do is let each other down
Let go of each other hands
Woman leaves for another man 
Children cry as their dads walk out the door
Buildings crash to the floor

Pre Chorus:
And all the birds 
Fly away
In a cloud 
Of blackened haze ...

Corrupt

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017

(sung to the tune of “There Once was a..” Or something like that)

There once was a kingdom
It sat between two hills
The land a pit of corruption
The king his spirit long gone

But there was a peasant boy
By the name of Marvis
He grew in a tiny village
Of strife and poverty

He knew there must be change
And so he studied and trained
Within his little eyes
The light of destiny is seen

Fairytale Fable

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017

(V1)
The stories tell us good wins over evil
And fairytales promise that it’s true.
Heroes triumph in the end
Traitors bleed but later mend
The villains scheme to win
But never do.
 
(V2)
But somehow our land doesn’t work that way
If it’s a game, I’m not sure how to play
Innocents don’t always escape magical enchanters
And sometimes there’s no happily ever after
 
(Chorus)
Princesses in petticoats
And pirates keeping ships afloat
Don’t represent the world...

((Verse))
(You) Keep me away,
Lock me up in some tower faraway,
Saving me for another day.

Walking in between dreams
Only to know that I'm forever asleep
I pray my soul to keep

Come back again
Let's travel through the pages
And pretend
To follow the book til it's end

Don't break away
Don't let the cover rot in the light of day
Let the pages...

He Holds the Sun

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017

When the day begins its blazing glare,
The boats rock their hulls against the tide,
And as light bleaches those pockmarked graves
Silhouettes rise to their labored lives.

You watch this unfold before your eyes,
Feel the cracked skin, the villagers' sorry plight,
To the heavens you throw your arms in prayer,
And yearn to harness the piercing light.

(Chorus)
Can you taste the Sun upon your tongue?
The grip of your want tears down the night,
And you leave...
