You're Not in a Cage
So, I took my challenge but am having some issues with uploading the music, so I'll resolve that later....
I gave myself an additional challenge (since I was the one knowing the theme in advance) of using story cubes. (Eye, world, jump, bridge, home)
I rolled a five, so that gave me eight syllable lines for the rhythm challenge.
Wrote my tune using the chords of the theme.
Used 4/5 of the bonus words.
1. You're telling me that we will fail
I've trapped you in a dusty cell
Plucked your feathers; you can't be free
The nest so high; can't leave our tree
Jump away from the red hot coals
If you feel that we lack shared goals
You're not a prisoner of love
I'm not the warden of your heart
If staying's not worth it, my dove,
Fly away. Fly so we're apart.
2. I'd sail across the world for you
When I look in your eyes, it's true.
Love's there, but we're missing a map.
I'll build a bridge to fix our gap.
I'd jump into red hot coals
If you say we have shared goals
I'll hang on in spite of the shit
Even through thorns and thistles
I love you and you are worth it
Hold on. Hold on despite bristles.
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
