Liner Notes: 

Skirmish 20 minute write. Positivity!! Too early for music.

Lyrics: 

Reach for the Stars

V1 I like to be the best i can
Mediocrity, nah not a fan
Nothing ventured nothing gained
Or everything would be the same

V2 Change is the way for me
Only way to set me free
Always seem to have the knack
Of taking a different tack

C Doing whatever it takes
Knowing how high are the stakes
With pride i carry my scars
As i reached for the stars

V3 Its all about balance you know
Then you are good to go
Striving hard for the lot
But satisfaction for what you’ve got

V4 Taking every opportunity
Acting with impunity
Not always playing by the letter
Trying hard to make things better

C Doing whatever it takes
Knowing how high are the stakes
With pride i carry my scars
As i reached for the stars

V5 Always moving forward
Even when things are awkward
Sticking by my morals
Never resting on my laurels

V6 Try to make it stay real
Not happy with that even keel
I guess that might suit some
But for me it’d be no fun

C Doing whatever it takes
Knowing how high are the stakes
With pride i carry my scars
As i reached for the stars

I think this is my fav verse, because it flows so effortlessly, and still reads sensibly:
"Taking every opportunity
Acting with impunity
Not always playing by the letter
Trying hard to make things better" (it's verse 4)
Lovely lyric Smile

The determination is real as the story is told. Very positive and relatable. "Mediocrity, nah not a fan" is a fun line and says a lot right at the beginning. Great take on the skirmish!

You sound like a rebel. Determined to make it your own way no what what stands in the way. I like the attitude.

This makes me pause and take a look within - have I been happy with the even keel...not willing to venture therefore gaining nothing...afraid to show my scars...??
Yeah...great writing in my opinion makes one reflective, makes me think about my own life and experiences. So nail...hit.
It is indeed a positive set of lyrics, as it makes me shake all that off and say its time to actually reach for those stars.
Good stuff, man!

Seemingly effortless flowing rhymes in this lyric, John, I envy you! Awkward/forward is a good one. Can hear this as an energetic song of positive intent.

This is a really nice positive song with so many great rhymes, and a lovely straightforward structure.

Great writing John.

I was going to leave writing anything for a while, but I’ll take a note of this one just in case, if that’s okay. Smile
