I am posting it here as I am not entering the contest.  I am no longer a regular poster and didn't want to offend any regular contributors.  I haven't even written a song since my last contribution over a year ago.  I do however continue to receive the occasional notification in my email inbox and this one was particularly interesting because as a complete non-musician, I don't often feel comfortable chiming in on anything as I really have no musical background leg to stand on other than what I think just sounds good to me, and even then I can rarely articulate what it is I think.

Hi @Rabid Parrot  ..... The kitchen has changed a lot over the years IMO .... and I can't imagine any regular poster being offended by what you have to offer. Whether you believe you're a musician or not - we love having you here!  :yes:
I miss what you add to the discussions and I hope that you'll feel free to join in whenever.  :thumbsup:

you've got excellent singing chops @Rabid Parrot   - most of the posts are song reviews  and I don't review songs , I don't speak good English to contribute to English as a 2nd language / lyric questions ....but every once in a while I find something to contribute to.

I'm American right down  to my birthday suite @Dutchbeat   it's just I wouldn't know an noun from a verb even if it bit me on my .... nose  :blackgrin:

I was just commenting that even if someone is not writing at the moment or chooses not to post what they're working on - it's still nice to hear from them from time to time. In my short time here I've seen them come and go and it's too bad because they seemed like such nice people.

This contest isn't for me DB, but thanks. Also I thought it was a good soccer game and you can take heart in the fact that no one watches women's football  ;D

And so it begins
And so we begin
Where are you now that you’re gone?
where are you now?

You shone like the sea – you washed over me
These words in my head, so precious, you said:
"When I am gone, I won’t be gone" (gone gone gone)
I try to feel but nothing feels real

My eyes are dry
My tears won't fall
I know you are here but why can't I feel nothing at all?
When all that we were is replaced with a scar

Emptiness can’t be filled
We aren't meant to rebuild
The only step is beyond - into the unknown, out of the fog
And here I find - I see you now
At the clearing of the sky - I feel you now

This is really good @Rabid Parrot ........seriously!
