Music Lyrics

Post by Check-Mate »

Well, I didn't know where to put this, so I put it here. It's more writing and creativity than anything, right? Ok, well, I seem to be writing a lot of lyrics for songs lately, So, why not post songs YOU'VE written here? Or maybe your fav. Lyrics?

i wrote this the other day when i was listening to a guy playing his guitar...i just started singing along.


You know it sucks to be unpopular...

Chorus:

Do you know how i feel?
I think sometimes that you do.
Do you know who i am?
Do you know i'm real?

Verse:

You think you have the right to
Look down on me
With your patranizing stare
Tell me what do you see
Am i so different to you
That i deserve this sh*t
I'm not playing by your rules no more
I'm telling you f*ck it.

Bridge:

I don't want to play this game
I don't want to feel this shame

Chorus:

Verse 2:



It's not finished yet but yeh. You get the picture. i've got a big CD i've written and it has me singing all the songs i've written, including that one accompanied by some techno stuff but it sounds pretty bad.

alright....here's one i like.
It's sort of stupid, and I thought of it in the shower. I was feeling depressed, sort of...(Evanescence inspired)
The verses are sort of spoken, and the other parts are sung....I pictured the video as like, a girl in the rain in a city street or something, and like, tons of people walking by, but they're all blurred, and in sort of slow motion.

Someday

Frustrated
confused
Alone,
Where am I
Someone find me
I'm alone
Blurred by tears
afraid
I can't see
I can't breathe
I'm alone

But I have hope.
(Sung) Someday I'll be found
Someday I'll be with you
someday I'll find the one to
guide me through
someday I'll see your face
(whisper) In the blur.
(spoken)But not right now.

I can't see
I'm lost
Hello?
someone Help...Help...Help
(scream) HELP

Bleeding here
dying here
Alone
without anyone around
But (heaving breathing) I have hope.

(sung) Someday I'll be found
someday I'll see you
someday, I'll be free.
(spoken) but not right now

Screaming, no one hears me
hurting, no one cares
I'm alone, so alone
blinded by tears
frightened
Running, I have to run away
Everywhere I go, I'm lost.

(Whispered between heavy breathing)
Freezing breath
driving into madness
falling, feet on the ground
Rain falls like acid

I have hope
someday, somehow, someday
I'll be free........

Well...I originally wrote this as a poem...but since I've put it to music so many times...meh.

Tough Old Life

Hits you like a
Smack in the face a
Slap on the wrist a
Tap on the shoulder a
Punch in the mouth

Smokin reefer in your
Best friend’s basement
Gettin caught
Gettin shot
Shootin dope
Losin hope

Be a junkie
Be a drunkie
I don’t care
No one cares

Sittin down
Get the good grades
Get the straight A’s
Throw it all away

Whisper down the cell
Pass it down
Goin ta hell

You’re never gonna make it in
This world
Never gonna get a job
Spend your life
Looking at a dream
Through a plate-glass window

In the gutter
In the brickwork
In the rusty sink

Strangle-shot
Mangled voices
Tangled wires
Wrapped around you

Goin into shock
Going down the river
Never coming back
Never comnin back

Losin light
Losin life
Never comin back

Comin up the bridge
Crossin under
Make a deal

Getting better
Getting worse
Doesn’t matter
No one cares

Crazy costume men
Lockin you up
Puttin you in
Tyin you up

You’re just a boy
What did you know?
Who did you see?
Where were you gonna be
Ten years down the line?

Take it easy
Take it hard
It’s a tough old life.

I think that lyrics and song always ruin the music. No talking! Just the music! That's one big reason why I prefer game music.
"Long before there was ultra-super-duper-128-bit-polygon-video-capture, hardware hype, wEiRd TyPe, pointless game ratings, E3, SCREAMING GUYS in ads, Virtual Reality, cliches like "in your face" and "it's the ultimate", 360 degree roto-scope-rhetoric from self righteous reviewers, CD-this, 3-D that, multi-million-dollar TV commercials tainted with TOILET humor...

...there was fun."

Basically this is my efforts...and they based off a true event that happened some time ago.


I can always see you
but your really never there
I can always hear you
calling out my name
I can always feel you
sending shivers up my spine

You tell me everything is gonna be alright
(You tell me everyday was an everlasting memory)
When the shortest day never turns to night
(And you never got the chance to dream your destiny)

I never got the chance
to tell you how much you meant to me
i never got the chance
to see you sleep without a smile
i never to chance
to say goodbye....

goodbye!!
Give Me Blood, Guts n' Glory...Shoot to Kill!!
