Liner Notes: 

A good skirmish topic - Good Times
Late to start, late to finish.

Lyrics: 

GOOD TIMES
V1
She’s only thinkin’ ‘bout the good times…
That’s where she wants her mind to stay
The power of those precious mem’ries
Helps her survive the darker days
V2
When life is getting dark or dreary…
She will escape in to her mind
And every thought that made her smile
Will bring her back to better times…
Ch
You need to let the good times rollllllll…
And keep them close, for darker days…
A simple smile warms the soullll…
And gently sends us on our way…

Solo

V4
Her life is like so many others
She lives a life of good and bad
But she prefers to dwell on happy
Instead of always feeling sad
V5
If she can smile all the while…
That life is giving her a test
She will survive until the tides turn
Till once again she’s feeling blessed…
Ch
You need to let the good times rollllllll…
And keep them close, for darker days…
A simple smile warms the soullll…
And gently sends us on our way…
Ch
You need to let the good times rollllllll…
And keep them close, for darker days…
A simple smile warms the soullll…
And gently sends us on our way…

I like your verses a lot. The first two, in particular, set the stage very well. You use good rhymes and you're able to combine the sad with the good times prompt and still have a hopeful feeling that I like very much.

This is a great sentiment and conveys a wonderfully optimistic perspective. I like the nuances in the verses and the strong positive message in the chorus.

Oh another great chorus - what a cool write within skirmish constraints. Well done. Please let me know when this is musicated ?

Good skirmish. I like the balance you achieve talking up the good times while referencing the bad. Quality writing. Well constructed and clever use of lyrics. Nice work.

This is optimism in a bottle, I like it and I like this perspective, a nice write.

Very well done. This portrait of a woman who prefers to dwell on happy is a good example for all of us. The optimism and resolve that carries through the hard times are very important and I like that you don't sugarcoat things so that that it stays real. Nice rhythm in the verses. I'd like to demo this one really soon.
