Dear Best Friend

Dear best friend….

[Verse 1]
How do you do? It’s been
Twenty years since I saw you
I know we went our separate ways, but
I just really miss those days when we’d
Sit on the swings in the middle of the park
Laugh and joke till it turned dark
I don’t know if you remember me, but if
You do then I can’t wait to see
You again

[Verse 2]
You see,
I’m coming to your quaint town,
I’d really love to see you around
We could grab a coffee or two, and
I’d spill my guts to you, because
You’d laugh and throw my troubles away
I’d smile and things would be okay
I don’t know if you remember me, but
If you do, then I can’t wait to see you again

Dear best friend,
My life’s been a never ending
Circle, and I just want some time with you
I know you’re busy, But I’m feeling lonely
So, please, can we just talk for an hour or two,

Dear best friend,
I sent a letter two weeks ago
I never got one back from you, so
I’ll be at the park at 6pm and
I hope you come there, we could meet again

I knew a day would come when
We would have to say goodbye
I hoped that we could push it down
Our friendship wouldn't die

[Verse 3]
Dear best friend,
I don’t know if you’ve
Checked your inbox since 2010
You never came around, I sat on the swings till 9pm
I’m saying my goodbye, I hope you live the rest of your life, happily because
When you turn around you will realise that you left me behind

Your best friend

    I love this song sooo much! I have listened to the performance several times, and I was so close to crying... It so personal and the lyrics are beautiful. I love your writing :)

    (But is it weird that I expected the voice to match the pfp lmaooo. Probably shoulda seen that one coming)
    I love the emotion and sombre tone you use for the last verse!!

    Thanks for the feedback - that was such a good point and I hadn’t really noticed before. I think it will make the song feel more professional :)

    i just republished my piece with a new recording, chords heavily revised. it won't be my final recording, so i'd love some feedback on it, if you can.

    I really love this! The format is very clever. I like how you use multiple “letters” to move your story forward. You have a beautiful voice and are such a great writer! Good luck!

    Hey, I'm working on the chords right now, and I was wondering... is it acceptable to change keys for the chorus? because it just doesn't sound right in they i used for the verses and pre-chorus (which i already cheated a little on)
    realizing that i could not easily and quickly learn the chords for B, (ugh, they're a nightmare) and realizing i couldn't quite sing in D, (i think?) i decided to just change everything! yay for rash spontaneity. now the verses and pre-chorus are in C, which is easier to sing and to play. but i really wanted to keep the chorus the same, which is:
    A F#m D F#m A F#m D A but it's in the key of D. can i do that?

    This is really good! I agree with EmmeH, the format of a letter to someone is really good! In the video, I also liked the pictures of the letters. That was very creative. Keep on writing!

    This is so good! I love the format of a letter to someone, it makes it seem more genuine and relatable. Your writing and your performance style remind me of Grace Vanderwall when she was getting started.
