Seemed Like A Good Idea

Liner Notes: 

This was written as the second part of the 'Lyrics Only Morph' (morph 2), organised by @AndyGetch.

Andy wrote the first set of lyrics posted here: *21340

I had to change approx 50% and repost as a new song, letting the next person in the chain know that it's their turn. So @kahlo2013, do what you will !

Lyrics: 

Verse 1
When I woke up and you were there
My mind just couldn't stop the noise
Seeing magazines I'd stare
Feeling good for minutes
Then hours like a creep
I didn't think of what we had
Of consequences good and bad
Of how my world would end and die

Chorus
Didn't think of separation
Lawyers fighting accusation
Didn't think of ruination
Arguing life liquidation
Seemed like a good idea
At the time
Seemed like a good idea

Verse 2
When I woke up I didn't think
My man brain kicked in overdrive
Onto spreading human seeds
No culpability
Just limbic primal needs
I never thought to start again
Renew the love and leave the lust
And leave the fantasies in dust

Chorus
Didn't think of separation
Lawyers fighting accusation
Didn't think of ruination
Arguing life liquidation
Seemed like a good idea
At the time
Seemed like a good idea



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Wow, that's a very full on set of lyrics right there!

So much going on, and the chorus is fabulous! I really love that chorus!

Great writing again, that I wish I could find the time to read a few times more, because there's so much going on in there! It's like one of those songs where you want to delve into it again and again, to take it all in!

[@marvsmotth] Thank you so much for such a wonderful comment Smile
It will be really interesting to see how it 'morphs' on further. Did you read Andy's original lyrics ?

I like the twists this takes from the seed song. Anticipation of seeing the next evolution........
