Lyrics: 

False Horizons, True Desires

V1
chasing dreams
finding mirages
holding hope
building collages

wanting more
seeing flickers
grabbing sparks
drawing pictures

about love....
about how love could be

C
false horizons
true desires
heart on a fence
love on a wire

false horizons
true desires
head in the sand
song with no choir

V2
falling deep
writing stories
creating
allegories

running fast
risking friction
skirting facts
trusting fiction

about love....
about how love could be

C
false horizons
true desires
heart on a fence
love on a wire

false horizons
true desires
head in the sand
song with no choir

B
someday it will get better
with no more good bye letters
when open to new destiny
guided by more clarity ...

C
false horizons
true desires
heart on a fence
love on a wire

false horizons
true desires
head in the sand
song with no choir



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

I am always so eager to see what awesome songs you will create and I am not disappointed with this one! Incredible!

The short lines give a lot of urgency to the lyrics here; definitely a rock form would suit it well.

Very tight write. Love all the little scenes and paradoxes that flash by - suits the philosophical nature of the song.

Not sure why, but the repeated "song with no choir" really touches home with me. Your words are as inspired as ever, Liz!

Hi Liz, hope you don't mind, but I also put music to these lyrics. Smile

The short burst of lyrics drives the song ahead very nicely. Love "heart on a fence/love on a wire"!

The "song with no choir" line is great. I'm guessing lots of musicians identify with that line. The song has some hope it, and the bridge makes it clear that there is hope in time, but the chorus is really quite sad.

I'm imagining a slow, pokey, electronic beat for this - but I suppose I would! Love how frugal you were with the words, and yet paint such a glittering crystal palace of dashed dreams and low hopes.
