Your Song lyrics

Recommended Posts

well nathan, where are all our lyricists gone?

over and over

i lay down my head

and i turn out the light

but im still thinking of you

over and over

cant live like this baby

get out of my mind

twisting and turning

i need to unwind

im calling for you

come, speak to me

lay by my side baby

thats the way we should be

when day melts to night

and when the party's over

before the music plays

and long after the coda

still thinking of you

sweet love

still thinking of you

over and over

over and over

inspired by the rain song..........so beautiful.

until

to have your eyes fall upon my face

a stolen kiss, a secret embrace

i will love you till the end of time

will you ever be mine?

is it so hard, this quest i have taken?

my love, my heart is breaking

for you, my love

bewitch me, oh master

make me your queen

you cannot deny this love

it is foreseen

it is written for us to be as one

no one inbetween

play me softly, gently

or as you will -

for i will love you

until

One morning a few months back, I wrote this after listening to Sabbath all night...

Followed into the darkness for my trial

Just another six-hundred and sixty-six miles

Man with the black book begins to preach

Pleading on his dirty knees

Begging me to repent

Only to prove my innocence

For the lost souls who scream

In the Empire of all Dreams

Trial's over and the Empire has spoken

On stand for his spells that I have broken

Sentenced to eternal damnation

All around they exploded in celebration

Crushing madness slithers through me

Dousing my mind with insecutirity

As the wings rip through my back

I Raise my shield prepared to attack

For the lost souls who scream

In the Empire of all Dreams

Gliding off of the stand

Showing them who I really am

Taking on a new wave of evil

For the salvation of my people

Those not on my side beware

Surrender is what you shall declare

Those involved as I retaliated

Will be destroyed in what they have created

As the wings rip through my back

I Raise my shield prepared to attack

For the lost souls who scream

In the Empire of all Dreams

It makes no sense, it's a complete impulse write, but I was thinking of this as a middle story. Now I wanna add a beginning and an end between this, which will make it..... A Rock Opera. :D

wow puck! thats cool! cant wait to read some more................. :D

Thank you very much! Your work's great as well (especially Honeydew).

Writing more to this will take time (especially since it's a middle story) and to me, writing into the voids between this is like writing one in between "The Empire Strikes Back". :P

i'm not a lyricist or a writer of poetry. i just dabble in this stuff. this is some one of my more coherent things. i have a bunch of stuff that i wrote when i was out of my mind

i can't even read through most of it. most is disturbing and sickingly painful. i wrote these when i started coming out of it a bit.

death prayer

power by my lips and hands

from my darkness comes light

i step into a bloody pentagram

to be all i am is my birth rite

i call unto the spirits

i ask for us to have strength

blood begins to drip

i ask for us to not be meek

we are to not be hindered

our soul was made to smile

of ancient cries remembered

deliver us into our time

the body is our bread

give us hunger give us feast

keep the jackals at bay

give the dead in us death

---------------

fight for flight

raise my voice to a blackening sky

angels descend

remove the thorns from my side

call to the sun to place the flames in my eyes

feel the burning guide my way back to life

this is my sacred time

leathery wings mended

a beast takes flight

redemption is in sight

begin of this cleansing

pull me above the tide

something calls

pulls the black waters aside

gives me passage from

this cursed land of time

bringing me out of these desert sands

a promise of paradise lies ahead

this is my sacred time

nothing will fuck it up for me this time

----------------------

glass house

up up up and away

we've lost the days

everything's betrayed

all we can do is sing

be the harbours of pain

toss some stones

break the glass

float away

-------------------

it's coming

feel it slip up from behind

wrapping around so tight

hear it call out into the night

know nowhere you're going to hide

there lies something beyond your reach

sparkly sharp and coming

got hands around the jugular vein

slice in deep into the meat

i feel it vindicating

i feel it annihilating

i feel it empowering

i want to share a piece

it's the ending

this one came to be after a reunion with an old friend...............

it was a thousand years ago

that you first smiled at me

innocence personified

beating hearts running free

half a lifetime lived on our own

we've loved and laughed and cried

and even though i lost your smile

you were often on my mind

as the years rolled on, and on , and on

that smile had gone away

and i took another in my hand

if i could only press replay

that boy of mine is now a man

no longer young and free

a brief ancounter, a stolen kiss

is all that's left for me

so now its you that has new love

and i am so lonely still

i hope one day we can meet again

and i will send my love until

treasures of darkness

that's what you laid up for me

riches stored in secret places

but through this blind garden, they

say you rarely rig the game

though I know they are facetious

and now I'm so much older

my mind is moving slower

and my heart's grown colder

and my days are numbered

yes, my days are numbered

and all i really know is

no matter where I lay my aim

it seems I'm sure to miss

as she's flying far away, singing

follow your bliss

and as I let my arrow fly

on the wind she takes a twist

and I hear her mocking me, with

follow your bliss

and then she bears her bloody mark

and we seal it with a kiss

and I think to myself

there must be more than this

there must be,

more than this

a beast in the paper, a star

on the screen, the film at eleven

will explain what it means

books for the looks, the word

seldom heard, the writing on

the wall whispers love is a verb

perception of the world is a fantasy

created by a few it's a new reality

all the world's a stage, it's one hell

of a show, with Jackson in the rear

and Franklin in front row

fame is the game, it's a face

to be seen, gotta get your picture

on the Rolling Stone magazine

perception of the world is a fantasy

created by a few it's a new reality

a christ on a cross, or a man

on the moon, me thinks Elvis is

alive, coming back real soon

perception of the world is a fantasy

created by a few it's a new reality

rather hard to understand, so hard to see

just how we let each other down in this great society

between the needy and the greedy, the former always pay

thanks to the politics of power and the news of the day

it's the same sorry story (some say the song remains the same)

some children laugh, some children cry

some children live, some children die

some children starve, some children play

say what you want to...

nobody's listening anyway

sometimes my lady

can't figure out my kind

she say we got troubles

i say everything will be alright

because there ain't no time

to worry, not on a

saturday night

so let us laugh and party

and dance 'til the morning light

dance

'til the morning

light

ok I'm gonna try this. I write poems, and lyrics to songs in different genres. they've been set to background music and put on cds; tweaked for flow -- well some of them are just too darn long! :slapface: And not necessarily that they'd be good, but I had fun writing them :)

a bluesy song:

♫ Soul Depleting Blues © Diane H.

(spoken)

You know Baby how the blues got started,

and claimed by all the broken-hearted,

blues begun when the first cheatin' man <sigh>,

met the first lyin' woman,

I ain't gonna lie!

(sung)

Sometimes you made me laugh, you made me cry,

either way looked through tears in my eyes,

remember me! didn't know where to start?

you wanted me all at once, I

fell for it real hard.

Know I shouldn't intrude,

eyes glued to you, it's rude,

Just lust, lord...a keeper,

ego stuff, not deeper,

got them no good, cheatin',

good for nothin' bleepin'

soul depletin' blues.

When we were dancin' on the wooden floor,

oh you melted me right to the core,

with penetrating eyes, but a disguise,

and oh yes Baby, you even

danced me to your door.

Remember the night it was last Tuesday,

my head went dizzy, you made me woozy,

I'm wondrin' 'bout you, what was in your head,

were ya makin' love to me? or

someone else instead?

Not even out the door,

missin' you all over,

know somethin's is brewin',

gets my mind to stewin',

got them no good, cheatin',

good or nothin' bleepin'

soul depletin' blues.

See Baby, the blues ain't no rocket science!

ready the fool needs your compliance,

my love for you is alive and kickin',

took alickin', livin' off love

has been the dickens!

Don't you worry 'bout me, really I'm fine!

can't fall in love with you on my mind,

guess I lie to myself, say...it's a crime!

'cause Baby, now that you're gone

I don't give a dime!

My heart went out to you,

wanted me converted,

I tried to divert it,

had a mind all its own,

got them no good, cheatin',

good for nothin' bleepin'

soul depletin' blues.

Oh Baby, one more thing before I go,

nothin' between us, but feelin' low,

when it comes to you, got a one-track mind,

devotin' words, wastin' my time,

got no good, cheatin'

good for nothin' bleepin'

soul depletin' bloo-ooues,

got them no good cheatin',

good for nothin' bleepin',

soul depletin' blues.

a little upbeat pop:

♫ KING OF HEARTS © Diane H.

I travelled up and down a road,

through city town and country,

I saw a billboard sign that read,

your fortune told,

you won't miss the money.

I parked the car and went inside,

my mind gobble-dee-gook soup,

Ma'am Orchid said shuffle the cards,

I never miss!,

let me give you the scoop.

Got to follow my heart but keep my head,

remember the words my Mama said.

Your past has been a winding trail,

at times it all seemed unfair,

the present's middle of intrigue,

I see you're no worse for wear.

Well all of that's behind you now,

life's been speed bumps and bruises,

compared to this, your future reads,

will seem like midnight cruises.

Got to follow my heart but keep my head,

remember the words my Mama said.

You've drawn the King of Hearts for him,

male warmth, ardent, elusive,

but he is loved by many, so

you'll not have him

for yourself exclusive.

That suits me just fine I said, he's

the answer to my question,

for me I drew the Queen Of Hearts,

and that was worth

the price of admission.

Got to follow my heart but keep my head,

remember the words my Mama said.

I just had to mix a loud rock and roll one!

♫ RAISE THE ROOF! (at the concert) © Diane H.

(spoken)

You know...

(cymbal sizzle, guitar burst, bass boom!)

(sung)

All those people outside there

they don't know we're here

but we're gonna show them

we got our act in gear!

We came her to rock the stage

you came to rock the floor

stand don't sit

crack that whip

I wanna hear you roar!

::clap/stomp:: raise the roof!

(yah we're here to)

::clap/stomp:: raise the roof!

They built this building soundproof

and shockproof to boot

but they never knew that

you people'd be our favorite group!

Bongo has set down the beat

BootLeg hammers on

rock lives on

heads will roll

you gotta stomp your feet!

::clap/stomp:: raise the roof!

(yah we're here to)

::clap/stomp:: raise the roof!

They hear the music in here

now they've got their proof

we don't give a damn coz

we came to blow the roof!

Headbanging to the core!

high-five who's next door,

now we're gonna

jack it up

and leave 'em wanting more!

::clap/stomp:: raise the roof!

(yah we're here to)

::clap/stomp:: raise the roof!

(we came here to)

::clap/stomp:: raise the roof!

(if you can hear me)

::clap/stomp:: raise the roof!

(you ain't loud enough!!)

::clap/stomp:: raise the roof!

::clap/stomp:: raise the roof!

::clap/stomp:: raise the roof!

::clap/stomp:: raise the roof!

(please excuse my repeated signature picture!) :blush:

oh no, there's more ... :blahblah:

i love the ©

how did you obtain it for your songs and how much did it cost?

hi bouncing,

The © symbol itself, I copied from a copyright website. Anyone's original work is 'automatically' copyrighted once pen hits paper or is written and/or composed in a tangible medium (song sheet, cd, etc.) so it is your right by law to use the short form symbol without cost or ever having to register the composition. It indicates that you are claiming ownership on original lyrics and/or music, etc. and prevents anyone from copying your work, intentional modification, or claiming they are an "innocent infringer"; that they didn't know the work was protected. It's up to you if you will allow modifications of your work, retain all rights to your work, retain partial rights, or sell all rights (exclusive/non-exclusive). Although publication is not necessary, once it's published on paper, cd, etc.; or 'published (written) to the internet', it should include the notice of rightful ownership and year it was written (or the date on the song/music website, blog, forum, etc.). The best copyright notice for a composition is: Copyright © year, Copyright Owner's Name. All Rights Reserved or ARR.

In the US, if you choose an online company website to copyright your work for you, fees may start at $69/year US for 5mg of space reserved for your submissions; or up to $30 or $50 US for each piece they register. They file the Copyright Forms at the Library of Congress for you. (or Do It Yourself website at: copyright.gov.) You may want to consider a website affiliated with intellectual-property attorneys in your country who can help you with contracts. A website like "directlegal" can copyright your songs for the fees above. A website like "TAXI" provides opportunities for record deals for a fee of $5 for each song and $300 for a 1 year membership. In my country, I submit the lyrics and/or music sheets to the CDN Song Vault. Also, I can register songs by placing them on a cd and sending it in. The fee is $15.00 flat administration for 1 submission of up to 12 songs + $5.00 for each song or lyrics. "works in progress" can also be registered. Here, we also have a copyright collective (SOCAN), free membership, who administers the performing rights (royalties) for 80,000 composers and many media compositions.

My very first try, i was fiveteen, and that one was inspired by a trip to Hastings, a small english town right to the coast:

I wish I`d be a seagull

Just the sea and me

I wish I`d be a seagul

I`d be totally free

My wings would take me everywhere,

Nothing I`d need to care about

Not just one tiny little doubt

Torturing my head

I`d just fly with the coastwinds,

Far, far away (2x)

I wish I`d be a seagull

Just the sea and me

I wish I`d be a seagull

I`d be totally free

The strong blowing winds would keep my mind clear

Nobody´s annoying, nobody comes near

And the only thing that I`d hear

Are the sounds of those mighty waves sorrounding me

I wish I`d be a seagull

Just the sea and me

I wish I`d be a seagull

I`d be totally free

So tell me, why I ain´t a seagull?

Why am I not totally free?

Why do I just have to be me?

I ain´t a seagull!

I ain´t a seagull!

Why can´t I just be free?

Why can´t I be a seagull?
