Songwriting in what sense?
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!)
