Liner Notes: 

I got stuck on another lyric and left it to do a simple one.

NOTE: Klaus has created music for this lyric! Listen here: http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/38275
Thank you again, Klaus! Smile

Lyrics: 

OH NO

We disagreed
Had a fight
Sometimes things
Don’t go right

Though we need
Time to think
We both know
This silence stings

[ch]
Oh no
If we let it go too long
Life will be all wrong
The sun has ducked behind the clouds
Cuz we can’t figure things out
Oh no, Oh no

Is our love
Solid stone
Big and bold
Deep in our bones

Are we now
Casualties
Sparks too hot
For apologies

[ch]
Oh no
If we let it go too long
Life will be all wrong
The sun has ducked behind the clouds
Cuz we can’t figure things out
Oh no, Oh no

[br]
I would cross the stormy sea
But right now it’s so hard to breathe
Soon hours turn into days then months
Before we know it, our love will be gone

Repeat ch

That's a sad one. I was hoping the unseen protagonists would drift together, not apart.

Sad but so real to life for many. Great idea and song!

First of all, I'd like to demo this. Short lines in the verses are very good. They are also easy to put into music. Melodies need space around them. I like the chorus too. It's a very romantic idea that sun ducks because of this pair about to break up. It's like the sun doesn't want to see that. Then the third verse is great and so is the "apology sparks" in fourth verse.

Hi Kristi, this is really good! Scary too because I know how hard it can get when we don't pay attention to our relationships. Honestly, I have plenty of experience messing things up. We've got to listen when things look like they are turning. Nice job with the bridge too bringing in the stormy sea and time.

I would love to hear Klaus take a shot at this...he's the best!

Sad song with the emotion conveyed so well and so concisely! Very well written. Nice apologies/casualties near rhyme. Those two words alone say so much. Love the bridge!
