[VERSE 1]
Cheap perfume
And expensive wine
Merlot on your lips tastes like midnight 

[VERSE 2]
Twenty dollar dress
And fancy dining
But it’s not about the check that you’re signing

[CHORUS]
We weren’t made for a life of luxury, luxury 
We spend our money where it counts (where it counts)
You don’t hold it against me, no
You just hold me right now 
‘Cause we weren’t made for a life of luxury

[VERSE 3]
Unpainted walls
And Sinatra on vinyl
Ours is a love I know will be final

[VERSE 4]
Invisible diamond on my hand
Sip the driest champagne
Counting down the days until I take your name

[CHORUS]
We weren’t made for a life of luxury, luxury 
We spend our money where it counts (where it counts)
You don’t hold it against me, no
You just hold me right now 
‘Cause we weren’t made for a life of luxury

[BRIDGE]
We’re in this for the long haul
More than just the last calls
I’m yours until we die 
Cause we were given this beautiful life

[CHORUS]
We weren’t made for a life of luxury, luxury 
We live and love day by day (by day)
I don’t hold it against you, no
I just keep you safe
‘Cause we weren’t made for a life of luxury

[OUTRO]
No, we weren’t made
For a life of luxury
Luxury
here's another song. came up with it on the fly yesterday, ;) was originally going to be like "illicit affairs" or "august" but i realized i didn't feel comfortable writing a song about an affair. so it has a happy ending instead.
i don't necessarily endorse my writing personally.
this is one that does not come from personal experience.

    Re: being a CA is definitely very fun! I’m doing a lot more reviewing and I’m suddenly way more active on the site, which is great. I also did that exemplar prompt (scary, but I enjoyed it :D). I’ve spaced out the weeks I signed up for, so I’ve got a rest for a little while now. We do some zoom calls, and there’s one coming up where we’ll learn more about peer reviewing. Hopefully, by the end of the term, I’ll be really good haha. Later on in the term, we get to make up our own prompts!
    Are you thinking of applying next time? It’s a little time consuming, but I’m managing so far - I would definitely recommend it.

    Re: thank you so much! I’ve been trying to work on my flow and tone, so that means so much to me! My first exemplar done (phew).
    Ahhh you are so good at writing songs!! You just thought this one up?! :o I love the fact that you stuck to where you felt comfortable — and the end result is gorgeous. It’s so sweet. I need this romance uwu

    the imagery you included really adds to the song! i wonder how different we both sing it in our heads lol re: thank you so much. you've inspired me to start looking up places to submit poetry, so if it gets accepted, then you'll definitely get some of the credit:P and yeah, i've been here a pretty long time! seen a lot of people come and go, but i don't think i'll ever really be able let go of this place.

    Re; haha thank you! I do not know who you are, but you are possibly one of my new favourite people. Legally, untrue. Truthfully, very true! My life is genuinely like a sitcom, and I have got so many stories like this one!

    Also, oh?? My God?? This is amazing- you came up with this on the fly? That is absolutely terrific holy hell. But also I love the fact you made it have a happy ending, that made me really, well obviously, happy

    i don't really know my genre. i can write country songs, and i will. but mainly... indie, i guess, with pop, folk, new age, and country influence. i'm envisioning myself as a stylistic combo of Taylor Swift and Sleeping At Last with a little Kelsea Ballerini. But idk.
