Ok cool, so we collected 8 lyrics, fantastic, thank you all who submitted a set of lyrics for the new songwriting challenge!
Here's the list:

1. @oorlab
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.

2. @smajor
Additional info: 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

3. @MichaelA
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

4. @DanJames
Additional info: I offer a pre-chorus and chorus...

Working title: God bless your happy home

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.

5. @Mark Luto
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

6. @MrBouzouki

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 ...

7. @Layerson
[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.

[Lyrics by Layerson]


8. @Dutchbeat
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... )


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

- "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"

Um... er... ah....

My title should be "I Want To Be THE Girl. I have nothing against the transgender community, but that isn't the lyric I wrote  ;)

The vs "A" girl - I'm missing the connection with transgenders. Both titles sound hip to me.

Hi @oorlab

You're right. I didn't think it through re transgender.

But the word change does affect the lyric.

Six votes already, but we need more of them.. If you did not vote already @Dutchbeat , @oorlab , @Layerson , @smajor , @MichaelA , @DanJames , @MrBouzouki  and @Mark Luto , please do so (and you know it's not 'class' to vote for your own lyrics!). Your votes ARE important to make sure everybody's lyrics have an equal chance.. Plz leave a comment below when you've voted!

More important: dear kitcheners, we're going to start this lyric challenge for you! And to select the 1 set of  lyrics we're ALL going to use for the upcoming lyrics challenge you have the chance to vote for that 1 set of lyrics that's going to be our assignment..
So please help us by reading the 8 sets of lyrics and submit your vote. It's anonymous, and democratic..
And when we know which set of lyrics has most votes, we'll expect at least 20 participants who want to create a song, based on that set of lyrics. Wouldn't that be special? 20 songs with the same lyrics!!

So please help us decide!!
Cheers!!
Mar T.
