What I love about 5090 and the wonderful musicians that are part of the community...

I posted this song today as a skirmish at about 3 PM... about an hour later I received the gift of an amazing demo from @tcelliott

Thank you, TC!! I really love it! Flows so beautifully and captures the sentiment so well! (TC made a few tweaks to the lyrics to fit his melody as noted by the parentheses below as somehow he could not get into my head to hear the melody I wrote to - and I LOVE the melody he came up with and the adjustments he made, perfect)

Lyrics: 

Your Love is Priceless

V1
I would give a
penny for your thoughts
nickels and dimes for your time
and a quarter for
even more of you...

I would give a
dollar for your style
tens and twenties for your smile
and a Franklin for
all that you do..

PC
but that would never be enough
for the priceless gift of love
I receive from you

C
your love is worth more
than anything....
anything I know
your love is worth more
than everything....
everything I own

your love is priceless
(your love is priceless)
something money cannot buy
your love is priceless
(your love is priceless)
richer than the earth (and sky)
(more vast than the sky )

V1
I would give some
copper for your kisses
silver and gold when deep and wet
and platinum for
even more of you...

I would give an
opal for your hugs
jade and rubies for forever love
and a diamond for
all that you do..

PC
but that would never be enough
for the priceless gift of love
I receive from you

C
your love is worth more
than anything....
anything I know
your love is worth more
than everything....
everything I own

your love is priceless
(your love is priceless)
something money cannot buy
your love is priceless
(your love is priceless)
richer than the earth (and sky)
(more vast than the sky)

B
when money can’t buy love
and precious stones won’t do
all I can do is promise to give
the best of my love to you

FINAL PC
and I hope that will be enough
for the priceless gift of love
I receive from you

C
your love is worth more
than anything....
anything I know
your love is worth more
than everything....
everything I own

your love is priceless
(your love is priceless)
something money cannot buy
your love is priceless
(your love is priceless)
richer than the earth (and sky)
(more vast than the sky)

Thats a lot of skirmish words, very good use of bending the prompt. Nice use of loads of derivatives. Well done.

Wow! Those increments are exactly what I wanted to hear from someone this skirmish, I love the way you almost made those closing lines in the verses a little bit sensual. A romantic song with a slight edge. Very intriguing!

I like the rhythm of this lyric a lot. It's a very good one. I can hear the beginnings of a melody but it's not coming through too clearly, unfortunately. The guitar is not working for me.

Okay, I lied... an idea is starting. Is it okay if I try to put music to this one?

So romantic Smile I love the rhythm of the chorus, and the repitition really emphasises that. Amazing skirmish.

You turned all that dirty money into a love song. Creative take on the prompt. Good write.

Deep and full lyric so quickly.
And you really got the love songs on lock - this is no exception as its as intimate and sweet as can be.
I hear a lot of strings and sweeping pianos.

Looking at the lyrics...ah, I forgot all about the penny for your thoughts...very nice...building up to the quarter is brilliant. It gets even better too with the dollars, tens and twenties...and Franklin for all that you do...very nice. PC is a very nice thoughtful thing to say...beautiful. The chorus delivers everything that has built up to it in your love is priceless. Nice bridge when money can't buy love. Final PC...I hope that will be enough. Honestly, it certainly would be enough for me...very nice song. chorus and out. Yes, this is the best song I've seen yet. Maybe nobody will top you on this one...very good skirmish.

These lyrics are super clever - I love the pattern of pairing up pieces of currency / precious stones with signs of love, the juxtaposition between the two types of things brings out how much more valuable the signs of love are, which really helps to drive the message home. The demo sounds great, too - loving the guitar performance from TC! Overall a very sweet song, excellent work from both of you!

What a powerful, poignant vocal! Really brings the words to life. Heartfelt strumming, too. Excellent collab!
