    As in something written to be able to be sung, rather than something written to be spoken.

    kinda hard without the music to back it up.........but okies.

    tomorrow just another day
    another way
    to spend my perfect day
    all by my self
    starin at the tv screen
    flipping through my magazine
    i cant look around
    i cant look around

    and i wake up
    tie my hair up
    try to move on
    nobodys home
    i need to break out
    give me some take out
    standing side the crowd
    i wanna scream out loud
    i'll be ok
    i'll be ok

    walking down this whining road
    raining days are all unknown
    i have hit the ground
    staring up into the sky
    countin all the reasons why
    my mind is spinning around
    i need to breath

    so,i wake up
    put on my make up
    pick up the phone
    nobodys home
    and i need to break out
    give me some take out
    standing side the crowd
    i wanna scream out loud
    i'll be ok

    get off from the floor
    i just can't take anymore
    leave that all behind
    just get along

    nah nah nah nah
    nah nah nah nah
    nah nah nah oohhh

    oh,i wake up
    put on my make up
    pick up the phone
    nobodys home
    and i need to break out
    give me some take out
    standing side the crowd
    i wanna scream out loud
    i'll be ok
    i'll be ok

    oh,i wake up
    put on my make up
    pick up the phone
    nobodys home
    and i need to break out
    give me some take out
    standing side the crowd
    i wanna scream out loud

    i need to break out!!
    were ok were alright
    were ok we'll be alright

    tomorrow just another day
    another way
    to spend my day


    or.....

    I sat by myself
    under a tree
    and thought to myself
    how pleasent this life has came to be
    standing up, stare at the clouds,
    why must they rain on me,
    and ruin another perfect day alone.

    im all by myself,
    with no friends to show,
    i worked so hard to make this work,
    and i have no where left to go, i
    cant believe you left me here
    alone, outside alone,
    in the pouring rain, just the end to my perfect day.
    before i say we were walking hand in hand,
    over the sand, we stoood our ground,
    you made me laugh you made me cry, why did you
    feel the need to say goodbye.

    you just left out, in the cold,
    on my own no where to go,
    and now your back once again, and you think that i'll
    forgive but your wrong
    because i like being

    all by myself,
    once again im alone.
    i might stare at these same four walls,
    and not every leave my room, but thats what you want,
    and i wont let you win,
    you have your tarts and just leave me
    believe me i will win.

    i like being alone..
    just me on my own,
    some quiet time, to reflect on my life,
    and i stop and i think,
    and i thank you for opening that door,
    leaving me alone, in the pouring rain,
    alone, on my own again,
    im stronger than before,
    so i'll skip home in the rain.

    , well it is hard to tell without the music to go with the lyrics. Some songs are lyrically driven, some are musically driven, and some are in between.

    The sort of stuff in a band is usually more music driven, so its hard really to judge how good it is.

    I have the opposite problem... I can submit music, but not lyrics. I'm the worst lyricist/poet you'll ever meet Having said that, I won a poetry competition once... but it was online and I think everybody got the same letter :confused:

    I can never actually write music or anything, but i see the two as intertwined, so whenever i write lyrics i seem to hear in my head music that can go with it.

    COmpletely unrelated....but i really like these lyrics..... (think this will be my leaving school song )

    And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives
    Where we're gonna be when we turn 25
    I keep thinking times will never change
    Keep on thinking things will always be the same
    But when we leave this year we won't be coming back
    No more hanging out cause we're on a different track
    And if you got something that you need to say
    You better say it right now cause you don't have another day
    Cause we're moving on and we can't slow down
    These memories are playing like a film without sound
    And I keep thinking of that night in June
    I didn't know much of love
    But it came too soon
    And there was me and you
    And then we got real blue
    Stay at home talking on the telephone
    We'd get so excited, we'd get so scared
    Laughing at ourselves thinking life's not fair
    And this is how it feels

    [1] - As we go on
    We remember
    All the times we
    Had together
    And as our lives change
    Come Whatever
    We will still be
    Friends Forever

    So if we get the big jobs
    And we make the big money
    When we look back now
    Will our jokes still be funny?
    Will we still remember everything we learned in school?
    Still be trying to break every single rule
    Will little brainy Bobby be the stockbroker man?
    Can Heather find a job that won't interfere with her tan?
    I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye
    Keep on thinking it's a time to fly
    And this is how it feels

    [Repeat 1]

    La, la, la, la:
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    La, la, la, la:
    We will still be friends forever

    Will we think about tomorrow like we think about now?
    Can we survive it out there?
    Can we make it somehow?
    I guess I thought that this would never end
    And suddenly it's like we're women and men
    Will the past be a shadow that will follow us 'round?
    Will these memories fade when I leave this town
    I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye
    Keep on thinking it's a time to fly

    Seeing as these were originally intended as song lyrics, anyway...

    Inside Picture

    I sold myself a picture-perfect
    Portrait of your Soul
    Hung it on my inner wall
    You held me in your thrall
    Your words were none to speak of
    And your mind was hardly there
    Sweet nothings so substantial
    Lest the truth be all laid bare

    And so I loved between your lines
    And so you lived inside my mind
    And so I never drew the line
    Until...

    Convictions hazy like the Moon
    Refracted through a mist
    The Sun was nowhere to be seen
    The truth did not exist
    Your mute visage spoke volumes
    Of a noise behind closed doors
    I suffered the deficit of the doubt
    But the benefit was yours

    And so you hid behind your lines
    And so I lived inside my mind
    And so I never drew the line
    Until...

    Between your lines
    And in my mind
    I find
    We are
    Unkind

    Outside these lines
    And on your mind
    Sweet nothing’s
    All I find

    Throughout my mind
    Between your lines
    My plans are
    Undermined

    And to my mind
    I’ve come to find
    I am
    No longer
    Blind.

    Songwriting in what sense?
    25 years

    25 years, living a lie
    Separated from you
    In the shadows of your eyes.
    Somewhere, somehow
    I find myself wishing that
    I could just come home.

    Why was I born?
    Just to savour all the hatred
    In this life.

    Chorus


    Don't leave me
    I want you
    Come back here
    Don't go
    I love you
    Forever
    Tomorrow is
    another day.

    But now that, i'm older
    I feel that i'm closer
    To you than ever before.
    Sometimes, I cry
    And hate all the mistakes
    I made with you

    Why was I born?
    Just to savour all the hatred
    In this life.

    (Chorus)

    la la la la
    la la la la
    do be do do

    I hate you
    But I still love you
    Confusion, hopeless lies.

    Why was I born?
    Just to put all my hatred onto you.

    (chorus)

    Please stay, I love you.

    In the recent trend of competitions, i thought that a songwriting competition would be a reasonably good idea for one.

    So lets see what everyone can do then
    Well Iv'e thought of the chorus to my second song.

    Ten reasons to love
    It's a power I bear
    There's a truth in your eyes
    It's a power we share
    Spread out your wings
    Do you even care?
    Reveal them to me
    Oh your ten reasons to love.

    Here's my effort, that i managed to recover in pieces, from the time i got really pissed with my songwriting abilities (or lack of them).

    Blurred voices

    Sitting here, all alone, conversation far away
    I don't know where i'll go, so i think that i'll just stay
    Wishing i, was like them, i am scared and i don't know
    anything, anymore, feels the same, i want to show

    (chorus)

    I am really here
    I wont disappear
    I'm not a monument of stone
    I wish it was clear
    Theres nothing to fear
    Do you know what its like to be alone?

    Other people talking is to me just blurred voices
    From what i can see, i only have two choices
    I can disappear, wish i weren't hear, curl up and die
    Or i can just live with hate, stop to late, forget i cried
    and sit here and try
    not to care any more
    unemotive, shut the door
    silence, block it out
    dont want to have to scream and shout
    And live without these blurred voices.

    (end chorus)


    Walking by, all alone, conversation passing by
    I've got nowhere to go, and i don't know how to fly
    Wishing i, walked with them, i'm confused and i'm unsure
    any sign, any time, no chance for me anymore

    (chorus)
    and i cant understand
    everything is out of hand
    and i cant understand
    all alone, i will stand
    and i cant understand
    I live with this true demand
    and i cant understand
    all these blurred voices, 'cause everyone talks in blurred voices

    I'm still here, all alone, no more voices passing by
    Blocking out everything, if i don't i'll start to cry
    I cant see, anymore, and i'm thaknful for it too
    I'm resigned to be alone, forget this life to live whats true...

    Don't want to listen any more
    Eternal silence in my core
    I've turned into a monument of stone
    Now i don't really even care
    If i can see anybody there
    Now i relish what it is to be alone, 'cause in the end were all alone

    Not really no. You could start up a music contest or something though, if you wanted to display that. But this is about songwriting (with an emphasis on the writing!)
