Now that the cover songwriting challenge is finished......let's get this new challenge that @Layerson and @Mark Luto proposed started, ok?

the We All Write A Song WIth The Same Lyics ...songwriting challenge


first we have to select the lyrics....
perhaps we can ask people who have lyrics to offer, or want to write lyrics for this new songwriting challenge

can place these lyrics in this thread?

and that we collect those lyrics here during the next 10 days, and then vote / decide on which lyrics will be used for this new songwriting challenge?

Edit: moved this post to its own dedicated topic (Mar T.)

It's silent here, so I moved this post to its own dedicated topic.
Please share your lyrics to be used for this challenge! We'll choose 1 and every contestant has to write a song using this 1 lyric. So in the end we'll have a lot of songs based on those same lyrics!
After we selected the lyrics, we'll open registration.

So plz post some lyrics that you allow to be used for this challenge!

Cheers!
Mar T.

Good idea from @Layerson  and @Mark Luto !
 I think @smajor will be interested to send in a lyrics.

Here is one of mine (unused)

Starface

take one element
translate with lightness
in the future of love
that we can gain
compared to darkness
of our intentions

coordinates of our selves
and the other us.
Fair weather snow goose
here is the land
there the sea
my poem to you

 I really try to share
bring equilibrium to the heart
 what we make can be magic
 walking up to the vulcano
of love.
I will mirror you
honest I will.

Thanks @oorlab for the heads up on this one.

Hi Everyone,

I've written 74 lyrics and poems so far this year (I'm writing more now than I ever did before in my life) so I can probably find something to post  ::phone::

I guess my question would be... is there a limit? I don't want to wear out my welcome.

Here's one to start with. For a female vocalist... I'm hearing an upbeat Pop sound. I was listening to Sia when I came up with the idea.

   I Want To Be The Girl 

Verse 1:
Saw a girl get groped at a funeral service.
What could she do? It was out in plain view.
The man closed in. And she looked so nervous.
Where could she go. Where was she supposed to go?

Verse 2:
It coulda been me standin' in her place there.
I felt her pain. Went back in time again.
The dirty touch. And the stink of power.
Hopin' no one sees. All I want is to finally be free.

Chorus:
I want to be the girl
carefree in the world
dancin' in the sunlight
like a princess
And when I become a woman
I don't want the burden
of blinded hateful anger
hangin' over me... oh, oh, oh, oh... oh, oh, oh, oh...
I'd consider that success.

Verse 3:
I sometimes wonder how many there are of us.
Bruised and defiled. But we continue to smile.
Always wary. Aching for someone to love us.
Yearning for a way to bring rainbows to every day.

Repeat Chorus:

Bridge:
After all these years
I'm holdin' back the tears
those nasty memories
still linger
I was just a kid
I remember what he did
with his goddamned
dirty finger.

Repeat Chorus:
xxx

Those who feel adventurous can take a look at my new lyric website and try to find a lyric they'd like to take a shot at. Let me know which one and I can post it. There are over 200 lyrics available  :o   Here's the link... http://smajorlyricist.com/

Later,
Stan

Here is a narrative set of lyrics I have which I've never developed musically into anything I have remotely liked. So I will offer it here for your consideration, kind folks!

Two Hearts in the Snow

When I looked out of my winter window
A shroud of snow covered the ground
And did I dream a robin by my winter window
Sang you were back in town?
Twelve months now, since you went away
Feel it like yesterday

I love you
Iíll write it in the snow
And draw a big heart around it
Just so youíll know


So I walked out into the frozen landscape
To the fields where weíd once go
Where Iíd etch those words and carve my snowy heart shape
If you passed by, Iím sure youíd know
Iíd seize back time thatís slipped away
Oh if I could, this day

I love you
Iíll write it in the snow
And draw a big heart around it
Just so youíll know


Break:

The snow was falling
Felt like calling
To Heaven with a prayer
But turning around
I was spellbound
You were kneeling there
Engraving in the Christmas snow
Ah, just to let me know

I love you
You wrote it in the snow
And drew a big heart around it
Just so Iíd know

I love you
I wrote it in the snow
And drew a big heart around it
Just so youíd know


Two hearts in the snow
Two hearts in the snow

If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

I offer a pre-chorus and chorus...


Itís not for me to count your moral debts,
This lifeís a gamble, place your bets.

God bless your happy home
May fate be kind,
Just pray theyíll never find,
The bodies in the basement.
So what price will you pay for peace of mind?
Knowing one day they might find,
The bodies in the basement.

Here is an attempt of mine, inspired by a (German) poem i recently read and liked.
Maybe it's still a bit bumpy. Suggestions for improvement are welcome... :)

WHY

strange
you were so close
I could have rached out
for your hand
for your arm

why
why didn't I dare
why didn't I tell you

touch
your face just once
I didn't want you
to seduce me
just feel you close

why
why didn't I dare
why didn't I tell you

dreamt
us hand in hand
strolling in meadows
through the woods
along the lake

why
why didn't I dare
why didn't I tell you

was I too shy
or was it fear
of implication
of commitment
of myself

now I long for you
endlessly

great  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: keep those lyrics coming in, and you can revise and change the lyrics til the deadline, but one one set of lyrics per songwriter, ok?

and....i also have the question whether the entire set of lyrics, so each and every line, should be used in the challenge, and whether it is allowed to  for instance  drop some syllables when it would fit the music better.....i think some liberty in adapting the lyrics to the music should be allowed  :yes: :yes:...but what do the others think of this?

Here is an old one, from the late 70's early 80's I believe ... so a lifetime ago then ;-)

What You Need

You're safe in your own little world
you're a dreamer, a schemer
And you're wanting a bigger slice
of the good life
But your life ... ( fill )


[C]
Never gives you what you need
and never really seems to change
And you're no closer to that shining star
it's out of your reach and it's fading away


You see all your days rushing by
time it leads you, deceives you
You watch the sunset come steal away
more of your life,
Oh your life  ... ( fill )


[C]
Never gives you what you need
and often seems to get you down
And not contented with the way things are
You'll fight tot have more 'till the end of your days


Time has passed and your older now
but not  wiser,  no wiser
clinging on to your broken dreams
of the good life
But your life ... ( fill )


[C]
Never gives you what you need
and never really seems to change
And you're no closer to that shining star
it's out of your reach and it's fading away


[C] ** Last Chorus different
Life** never gives you what you need
and never really seems to change
And you're no closer to that shining star
it's out of your reach and it's fading away

It's out of your reach and it fading away ...

It's out of your reach and it fading away ...

@Mar T. guess itíll have to be one of mine then  :blackgrin:

This is from an unfinished song/lyric, and I just now threw in a bridge and rewrote it a little... here goes:

Discovered I Was Evil

Verse1:
I saw an image in the mirror,
of a face that wasnít mine.
It was the picture of a sinner,
of a pure and evil kind.

Pre-Chorus1:
Never thought Iíd be the monster
Always felt that I was good
But someoneís lurking in my shadows,
afraid Iíll wreck their neighborhood.

Chorus:
Oh no,
Heís still around.
Oh no,
Donít make a sound.

Verse2:
I never read any papers,
just been an ignorant fool.
Donít need no books or education,
just turn me into a tool.

Pre-Chorus2:
Gonna be the perfect monster,
always doing what Iím told.
Scaring them and fearing you,
make me fit into the mold.

Chorus:
Oh no,
Iím still around.
Oh no,
Donít make a sound.

Bridge:
So afraid that youíre left blind.
Canít be reasoned to put fear behind.
Did you forget, why they were so kind,
and put a monster - in your mind!

Chorus:
Oh no,
Theyíre íre still around.
Oh no,
Donít make a sound.

i still want to add something ...for the challenge. Sorry for the spelling errors and for the fact that i can not write lyrics  :-[ :-[ :-[

i came up with these, far too political, poor lyrics:

Unprecedented Presidential

the man on the stage
is making some stiff moves
to prove that he can act presidential
but for him that is not essential

(because..)
the man on the stage
single-handedly created millions of jobs
debunked global warming and other hoaxs
yet he stays modest, yes, he is one of the folks

it all just comes so natural
he just makes or breaks deals unilateral
for him it is all just natural
because he is....unprecedented presidential


btw, the man on the stage
is also the Hemingway of twitter
he is just such a great transmitter
and the fake media are just being bitter

(and...)
it is somewhat true..
he can make a crowd cheer or booh
about witch hunts and shameless cover-ups
and about locking his opponents up

(add an optional "Lock Her Up! Lock Her Up!-chant sample here... :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :dance: :dance: :dance:)


for him it all just comes so natural
he just makes or breaks deals unilateral
for him it is all just natural
because he is....unprecedented presidential

....unprecedented presidential
!
                 (incredibly powerful and influential)
....unprecedented presidential
                 (with the likes we have never seen....potential!)
....unprecedented presidential
                 (and all the evidence is circumstantial)

....unprecedented presidential

etc. 


optional ad-libs samples  ;D ;D ;D:

- "we will make them pay for the wall"
- "I have never seen a thin person drinking Diet Coke."
- "we could use a big fat dose of global warming!"
- "my IQ is one of the highest"
- "when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything"
