Liner Notes: 

Amanda: I didn't make Corrine's sunday night skirmish last night, as I wasn't feeling well. So I decided I'd give it a go this morning instead.
The theme was "Breeze".
This morphed in my imagination to 'wind' and I started with the line "Wanna feel the wind again" and worked from there. Only the lyrics were for the skirmish time.

UPDATE 22.7.19
The wonderful @coreystewart is going to bring this to life with music and vocals Smile Thanks Corey Smile

Corey says: the brief was "Synth Pop" so I thought a bit of that plus some Daft Punk thrown into the mix would be cool Smile

**************************************************************
Technical bit Sad

Collaborations:
The next bit sounds harsher than it is - it's mainly just to ensure that we discuss the collaboration before we start, and that we are on the same playing field Smile

Please ask me first if you would like to use my lyrics, just in case someone else has already asked and has started working with them.

If you wish to collaborate with a view to the finished song being used outside/after 50/90, please check with me before we start, as I often use my lyrics professionally with non 50/90 co-writers, after 50/90 Smile

If you wish to change my lyrics, please check with me first to ensure I'm happy with the changes. I am usually open to discussion, as that is how collaboration works !

The above isn't meant to sound difficult, it's just a matter of sorting what we are doing before we start, so everyone is happy - communication ! Smile

Many thanks, love and peace,
Amanda Smile

Lyrics: 

v1
Really not sure how
we reached this point
We didn't try
Di'nt have what it takes
in the first place
We let it die

v2
Some things are toxic
an' things aren't real
Where did it go
It swallows your breath
and then runs off
In love's last blow

pre ch
I won't wait for a moment longer, how can I

chorus
Dunno how we came to this
Nothing comes from borrowed bliss
Will not hide and be condemned
To nothing
Wanna feel the wind again
Wanna feel the wind again

v3
Nothing can be as
it seems to be
A twisted life
The hidden agenda
has a choke hold
The twisting knife

pre ch
I won't wait for a moment longer, how can I

chorus
Dunno how we came to this
Nothing comes from borrowed bliss
Will not hide and be condemned
To nothing
Wanna feel the wind again
Wanna feel the wind again



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

Hey, I like the use of the breeze prompt and this is a really good lyric.

Great music by Corey as well! Wonderful song.

ths is pretty downbeat even for a break up song. the chorus gives some hope, though, for a better life to come.

Great tune. The demo is just plain awesome! Perfect fit with the lyric. Pretty much radio ready. Beautiful work y'all did.
