Vanilla-Flavored Gummy Bears
on: October 10, 2020, 14:16:16
Hey @LePlongeur  these lyrics are for you!   ;D   :thumbsup:   
We don't have winegums around here but we do have gummy bears!  ;)

Vanilla-Flavored Gummy Bears

Verse:
Throw away these things I never really wanted.
We could have plated this house in gold but it wouldnít have changed a thing.

Pre-chorus: 
And you Ö.ooh ooh ooh Ö lectured me about success
And me Ö. eh eh eh Ö Iím the one who made this mess

Chorus:
Remember how it was,  our apartment up the stairs?
We didnít have much money but we didnít have these cares.
Two of us at the table, our little kitchen up the stairs,
Living on the finer things like Ö. vanilla-flavored gummy bears.

Verse:
Push aside the wardrobe. Sweep the cobwebs and the dust.
I could still have the finest clothes but it wouldnít change a thing.

Pre-chorus: 
And you Ö.ooh ooh ooh Ö lectured me about success
And me Ö. eh eh eh Ö Iím the one who made this mess

Chorus:
Remember how it was,  our apartment up the stairs?
We didnít have much money but we didnít have these cares.
Two of us at the table, our little kitchen up the stairs,
Living on the finer things like Ö. vanilla-flavored gummy bears.

Bridge:
Throw away the diamonds. Let me sparkle with my own light.
Just because somethingís ďbetterĒ doesnít make it right.

Pre-chorus: 
And you Ö.ooh ooh ooh Ö lectured me about success
And me Ö. eh eh eh Ö Iím the one who made this mess

Chorus:
Remember how it was,  our apartment up the stairs?
We didnít have much money but we didnít have these cares.
Two of us at the table, our little kitchen up the stairs,
Living on the finer things like Ö. vanilla-flavored gummy bears.

And itís a beautiful one @Bill from November Sound
Talking about a bit melancholy but nevertheless highly romantic text.
I like it a lot, I really do.

Are you planning to put it to music?
I am very curious what your plans are with this one.

I would like to end with a distichon:
Do I see youíre getting a bit sloppy of late
Because there seems to be a typo in the date....

I wish I had written this one. Itís also a bit prompt writing, isnít it?
Thank you!
Kind regards, Gus

Hey @Bill from November Sound
Over here we've got both wineglass* and gummy bears but I've never encountered a vanilla-flavoured one, as yet!

I really like the lyrics and their message and I particularly like the phrase 'up the stairs'... somehow those three words make it even more relatable to the reader.

*edit: should read: winegums not wineglass!!

Hey @Rachel_D  thank you! That means a lot to me. I always appreciate the lyrics in your work so when you say these are good that is powerful.

I don't think vanilla flavored gummy bears exist.  ??? Maybe?

Hey @LePlongeur  so, yes, I do have music! I write the music and lyrics simultaneously.
Probably a while before it is ever recorded, though. 
I'm having problems with arrangements a lot these days. It really holds me back.
10/1 is the day I actually wrote it.

Ahhhh..., I see. The 1st of October I think?
But you can see my mistake when you post it the 10th.
Sorry about that. But worth the distinction.

Wine gums are a *dentistís dream. Only watching them is enough to have two teeth filled. Canít eat them on account of gelatins, but thatís another discussion.
I guess the same goes for gummy bears I guess.
Vanilla or otherwise.

I am very very curious about the song, should you decide to post it.

I hope so.
Kind regards, Gus
