TO HEAR DEMO BY JOANNE COOPER

Lyrics: 

V1
one thing led to another
from an unassuming start
a blazing fire erupted
from a solitary spark

it was not supposed to happen
nor did it need to fall apart
but a raging fire dies down
when heavy storms put it out

C
it could have been
the start of something new
that grew stronger and better

it could have been
the start of me and you
that lasted beyond forever

it could have been...
yes I think it could have

V2
but one thing led to another
that dissolved what had grown
large holes formed in fabric
from tears in what was sewn

it was not supposed to happen
no one could have known
but some things easily unravel
when threads of truth are pulled

C
it could have been
the start of something new
that grew stronger and better

it could have been
the start of me and you
that lasted beyond forever

it could have been...
yes I think it could have

B
it could be easy to walk away
it could be easy to forget
it could be easy to love again
but for me it's not easy yet

C
it could have been
the start of something new
that grew stronger and better

it could have been
the start of me and you
that lasted beyond forever

it could have been...
yes I think it could have

This is so beautifully written and I think that second verse is as good as it gets. I hope I will hear it soon!

Hm, that feeling of another life that could have been, a relationship that could have worked out if not for life and circumstance, a powerful feeling and memory evoked.

I like section B the most; as time is the only thing that I've found that can make things ok, and I think you captured that wonderfully.

Really strong and well constructed lyric -

it could be easy to walk away
it could be easy to forget
it could be easy to love again
but for me it's not easy yet

Really got me
