Liner Notes: 

So Titular had this phrase: "tunnel of heartbroken waits". I twisted it around a bit a week or so ago then didn't like what I had written. I just looked at it again today and made some more changes, including one word in each chorus to add to the meaning of the story.....hope it all makes sense!

Lyrics: 

TUNNEL OF HEARTBROKEN SOULS

There were souls of every age
Fresh out of love gone wrong
They hid inside their sorrows
And muttered their swan song

Each one had a story
Of deceit and larceny
They never thought they’d be here
Lost in uncertainty

A lady came over to me
Trying to be comforting & said

[ch]
When you fall in love
You risk it all
Cuz you’re playin’ with fire
And bouncin’ off the walls
When you shake it up
Let it rock and roll
You may land in the tunnel
Of heartbroken souls

She said go, don’t stay here
You’ll get buried in the dirt
There’s other ways for you
To try and fix the hurt

I asked her how she knew me
We were strangers after all
She said she knew the look
And smelled the alcohol

The lady repeated her warning
Leave before morning & said

[ch]
When you fall in love
You risk it all
Cuz you’re playin’ with fire
And bouncin’ off the walls
When you shake it up
Let it rock and roll
You may linger in the tunnel
Of heartbroken souls

[br]
It’s okay to fall
It’s okay to lose
But just don’t get comfortable
Singin’ the blues

The lady followed me out
Said to head back to town because

[ch]
When you fall in love
You risk it all
Cuz you’re playin’ with fire
And bouncin’ off the walls
When you shake it up
Let it rock and roll
You could languish in the tunnel
Of heartbroken souls

[Tag: Don't wanna languish in the tunnel
of heartbroken souls]

Gosh this is brilliant! I love that she knew the look and smelled the alcohol! Great!

“Land in the tunnel of heartbroken souls” is a great hook line to write around.

I’m sure someone will wrap music around it!

I love the hook - very effective and well placed in the chorus. Really good story in the verse.
