I Know I Can Write A Song

Chorus 1
I know I can write a song
[D/Dmaj7/D2 vamp] I want it to have meaning
I want to sing it with feeling
But my inner critic is strong

Verse 1
Sometimes I take a deeper dive
and get stuck
Hooks and steps through quag- mire
dragging muck

Repeat Chorus 1

Verse 2
Sometimes I try to find a rhyme
and it runs
Songwriting a challenged mind
but its fun

Bridge
I write to find my piece of mind
I write growing to feel and sing

Chorus 1
I know I can write a song
[D/Dmaj7/D2 vamp] I want it to have meaning
I want to sing it with feeling
But my inner critic is strong
There is no right or wrong
I know I can write a song

Really liked the chord progression in this track. Glad you're enjoying the songwriting class!

Ah yes.. a song about a song! Been there too my friend. Stuck and unstuck. You capture it just right

I think all songwriters can relate to this, as those first two line hit the nail on the head
i'm impressed by the chord names too, 50% I've never even heard of which will send me to my LH chord encyclopedia for translation!

First of all, welcome back! I look forward to seeing you again soon.
I love the contemplative, vulnerable feel you create. And really cool chord changes, too.

I'm impressed. When I start thinking that thought... I know I CAN write a song, that's exactly when I can't. And then I have to go for a walk. Great job breaking through the wall!

Very relatable for the whole 50/90 community. You got really creative with the chord progressions! I love your words in verse one. It's like a map through the process. Nice work.
