Liner Notes: 

Another one, I guess now three of just Lyrics.

-- It'll be nice to have something to work on later... Fool

I was watching a very short indie type film and it made me think about "friends" and then this came out in just minutes... I could not write fast enough.

(Wow..., I thought I had decent friends... maybe not?! Smile Hahhh...)

Lyrics: 

The Quick and The Dead – original draft of lyric

The quick and the dead
Unfriend of me
No covey of worries
Just bare..., no fruit..., still free

"It" talks as if we care
Unfriend nightmare
Its covey of friends
Just tend..., not mend..., no, no, not for me

I say nothing of what its led
I say nothing of why its dead
I say nothing of its quick
I say coming love..., ties its tick tock..., to its dead

The strike of its nail
No matter the fee, from its mail
Get cut away from its mask
Either quick..., or just now..., dead ...

The quick and the dead
Unfriend of me
No movie fantasy
Just us..., you and me..., prying our lives free

--------------------------------------------------------
-- Then recently became, in one iteration, some structure changes, however may appear slight starts to quickly go in another direction:

G // // // //
G // //

Am F C G
The strike of its nail, no matter the fee, from its male, guicken the dead

[Might be a bit heavy handed on the rhyme scheme? Dunno... whatta u think?]

[Ahhh, edited in a bit, got some preliminary Chords and a sound sample... guess I'll get that up asap...]



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

Hey, I love the rhyme scheme. I've seen you around the site and your wordplay is immense - I could almost think you're addicted to it Wink I had to look up the word "covey", I love that you include such unusual words and phrases in your lyrics!

This is open to a few interpretations for me - the whole unfriend theme could be linked to social media - then there's the dual theme of the quick and the dead. Your lyrics are enticing and undefinable for mood. What was the film about?? Biggrin It would be interesting to hear it with your guitar to see what you make it in to.

Hmmm....not quite sure how to take this one. Very riddle-like.

Oh well? Well fill me in. Not so good at this.

Es ist eine poetische Lyrik über das Leben und Freundschaften.
