New song lyrics very close to my heart.
on: August 07, 2018, 23:43:42
Hi,
Johnny here.
I wrote these lyrics for my brother. He asked me to write this for him a long time ago now but it has taken years for me to do so. but here they are.
There is a link for the music for it but with no vocal yet. But i will finish it 100% but for now it is just lyrics and the base music idea for his song.

Johnny :)

Title: All about the money.

Music link is here... https://allihoopa.com/s/Gh8xgnXC

The lyrics so far are....


Sat there on his bed
with cancer in his head
my brother turned to me and he said

i know my time is up
soon i'll be history
just promise me you'll do what i ask

he said...
write a song
sing it well
make it loud         
give em hell
tell the truth
don't let me down
make me proud John
don't hold back

they were mean
they were cruel
the things i had to listen too
it hurt me more than this disease
oh yeah...
they were...

All about the money
cos i heard...
every single word that they said
they thought that i was sleeping
there was no love
the were no tears
all one big conspiracy
no they don't care about me
he said...
it was all about the money

not long after that
my brother passed away
i started thinking about what he asked
everything was true
cos in death that's what you do
then my broken heart said
you must write this song...

write a song
sing it well
make it loud
give em hell
just tell the truth
don't let me down
make me proud John
don't hold back

they were mean
they were cruel
the things i had to listen too
it hurt me more than this disease
oh yeah...they were...

All about the money
cos i heard...
every single word they said
they thought that i was sleeping
there was no love
the were no tears
all one big conspiracy
no they don't care about me
he said...
it was all about the money
Life is one big lesson.

Hey Johnny......these lyrics really cut deep. I can see why it took some time for you to get them out. The music seems to fit as well......looking forward to hearing the song come together.

Hi everyone,
Thanks for taking the time to read through the lyrics and listening to the base music i have for it so far for this song.
Yes it took me a few years to sit still to start this one but i am glad that i did.
I'm in the middle of moving homes still here so i can't really work on anything for a few more weeks.
But once i'm settled in the new house i will get right on with it 100%
Thanks again for the positive feedback.
Johnny :)
