My first collaboration, hope it's ok just to post it? Not sure of the etiquette. @Adnama17 and I were matched in the random collab forum thread, I gave her the prompt "golden" and these are her lyrics. Hope the tune does em justice! There's a weird chord in the prechorus, idk.
Faded curtains in the window
Dust on all the shelves
Dishes piled up in the sink
We've been kidding ourselves
All of this is plastic
Even the look upon my face
I can fake it 'til the cows come home
Get the hell out of my space
Where did the shine go?
We're dull and faded
The sparkle, the glow?
Pure gold doesn't tarnish
Too bad that's not what we've got
We've got a lot of junk mixed in
Some we've made and some we've brought
Pure gold doesn't corrode
It stays lush and warm and bright
But each day brings more pollution
No more golden, only night
All the polish in the world
Just adds kindling to the curse
More scrubbing and more scouring
Will just make the stinging worse
Not sure what we should do next
This fake routine is all I know
The only thing that matters now
Is that I've got to fix my flow
