@Dutchbeat A ticket to the afterlife? A kiss from Vampira? A tell-tale from Lenore?

Hummm  I find your ideas very interesting but this ticket to the afterlife is.. amazing!!!!

Hi guys!

Sadly, it doesn't look like I'll have the time to finish my contribution for this challenge in time. Iv'e got an almost finished draft with lyrics (the missing part is the bridge). If I finish it in time remains to be seen (... currently working double time, from 08:00 to 21:30 (8 am to 9:30 pm) everyday to be finished with our new house on time before we move there in about a month...  :doublebonk:)

I hope you guys will be understanding if my song is in a somewhat raw state if i do submit an entry. Thumbs crossed, haven't given up completely, I'm still hoping for some kind'a miracle to give me some energy and time to be done in time with both projects  ;)

@Layerson .........I think you need to concentrate on getting that house ready, Micke. How exciting is that!!???

Consider posting whatever you have when the time comes. You can always pick it back up later when you are all moved in to your new digs and maybe you'll even get a few ideas from listeners.

@Layerson I'd say don't let the project haunt you. Ghosts live in old houses, so you'd better concentrate on the new one...

Thanks guys, your words are heartfelt and warming  ::heart::

lím prioritizing the house (...well itís a finished house, my bad, but most of the living space needs new roofs, walls and floors). Iíve got some help so I consider myself lucky to have such good friends in real life as well. The plan was just to paint and do new flooring but as with all old houses there are unknowns and setbacks. (The ghost is mischievous m maybe  :blackgrin:)

Iím gonna finish the song no matter what, it is to good an idea to waste.

To be continued, fingers crossed  ::e-guitar3::

And I managed to find the hours while the paint was drying and I didn't need to sleep or work.  ::headphone::

Here it is, my entry in the challenge:

Alas, I have no good excuse like @Layerson ( who really didn't need an excuse because he got his done ) I do live in the woods and have a lot of house projects to do ... yet I've been too busy with other music stuff.  :(  basically I'm out. Sorry @Dutchbeat  ... I wrote some good lyrics, though.
I'm Bill and I'm just a normal guy.

Hi @Bill from November Sound and @Layerson

needless to say there is no pressure or obligation whatsoever to enter a song for the songwriting challenges on this forum...the challenges are meant as an inspiration to make music, lyrics, a song and to just have fun while doing that, but when our real life keeps us busy there is no need to make a song for a specific challenge

when i said "no pressure", i didn't mean that in the Trumpian way of no pressure  ;D ;D ;D

but....we have a number of entries for this challenge, and the 'deadline' has passed, so now i ask our administrator and IT wizard @Mar T. nicely  :shinyteeth: :loveit: :loveit: :loveit: :loveit: whether he can set up one of his voting polls....

so that we can pick a winner, he or she who will win a free, telepathic longdistance aura reading  :o :o :o from our member @Liťschevre ..fformerly know as...@goatrelated

and  ;D ;D ;D...with this songwriting challenge wrapping up....we can select a new songwriting challenge  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

Ah I looove cover challenges!! We'll certainly run another kitchen cover challenge sometime. @Dutchbeat and I had a great idea for the next challenge in the meantime, we'll announce that one soon. Maybe later this year a cover challenge would be nice.. Good idea @DanJames !
I'm proud of this track, check it out! https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/dreams
