So I hardly ever swear, so I can't even sing these lyrics (so please sing them if you feel inspired)… but basically, earlier today I had a moment when a song jumped in my head all at once. I scrambled to write it down. But I kept getting interrupted (not by my son... so this is not a rant at him... just so we're clear). Finally at the end of the day I returned to what I had written. And I can't pull that song back into existence. So this song is not as good as that one... but it's what I have.
I had a great song at the edge of my mind
But you wouldn’t let me write it in time
The melody was perfect and flowing and pretty
And the lyrics were well timed, and also quite witty
I know the theme and some of the words
But what can you do with half of a verse
So please don’t talk to me when I’m composing
Don’t butt in or ask or do any more nosing.
People would love it, it’s everyone’s song
It would top all the charts, but instead it is gone
So why didn’t you let me hum it one time,
Now the music is gone and the rhymes just don’t rhyme
It’s more precious each time I think about it
But when I try to sing it, it just sounds like shit
I can’t recapture what is now gone
My perfect, and precious forever lost song.
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
