Liner Notes: 

Wrote this for the skirmish theme: Unconventional. Took about 30 mins and was more a stream of consciousness, with just a couple cases of copy n pasting.

I was hearing rock while I wrote it, but I'm not set in stone... hmm or maybe I am

This is now another that's going to be recorded by Future Kings Of Denmark Smile

Lyrics: 

Verse 1
Can you hear me
Are you listening to this
Are to taking in what I am saying now

Baby
Do you know just who I am
Can you tell by listening to what I say

I'm not who you see today
My soul died... and went away
I'm different to you
I don't suffer am not blue
I'm a woman
Who sees just who she is
In her own way

Chorus
Unconventional
Isn't hype at all
It's being true to life
Staying who you are through highs
And lows
Unconventional
Is who I am

Verse 2
Are you looking
Can you see me through the haze
Can you deal with what is there before your eyes

Baby
Do you mind if become
Someone you do not want to know at all someday

Lying down to sleep at night
Dreaming soft... of love and light
I'm wandering around
Touching life an not earth bound
I'm a woman
Who sees just who she is
In her own way

Chorus
Unconventional
Isn't hype at all
It's being true to life
Staying who you are through highs
And lows
Unconventional
Is who I am

Outro
Lying down to sleep at night
Dreaming soft... of love and light
I'm wandering around
Touching life an not earth bound
I'm a woman
Who sees just who she is
In her own way

Staying who you are through highs
And lows
Unconventional
Is who I am

I love that line, "I'm not who you see today" and the "do you mind" verse stands out for me. This is an unconventional lyric in a way, just from the scanning of it. But it works for me. I think it has a lot of texture.

Agree with tc that's a cool line. It's pretty deep and a lot of concepts . Good skirmish

This is a really wonderful write. I love the message in the chorus. And really love this stanza:
“Lying down to sleep at night
Dreaming soft... of love and light
I'm wandering around
Touching life an not earth bound
I'm a woman
Who sees just who she is
In her own way”

I can totally relate! Thanks for the prompt and the great lyric!

Looking at the lyrics...Tommy, can you hear me? Just kidding...Self-esteem boost and hearing it loud and clear. Nice chorus, that worked great. Nice follow up in verse 2 with a solid message. Unconventional is who I am. Very nice Amanda.
