Liner Notes: 

Prompt: No Sense

Lyrics: 

V1
there’s no sense
in saying you love me
there’s no sense
in those words anymore
there’s no sense
in trying to come back
since you walked right out
my door

C
it’s nonsense
that you think I think about you
it’s nonsense
that you think I hope you will call
it’s nonsense
that you think I protest too strongly
when really
I don’t miss you at all...

V2
there’s no sense
in saying you’re sorry
there’s no sense
in showing me you care
there’s no sense
in sending me flowers
when they come I will not
be there

C
it’s nonsense
that you think I think about you
it’s nonsense
that you think I hope you will call
it’s nonsense
that you think I protest too strongly
when really
I don’t miss you at all...

B
it makes no sense
this nonsense
of still singing songs about you
it makes no sense
this nonsense
but that’s all my heart let’s me do

C
it’s nonsense
that you think I think about you
it’s nonsense
that you think I hope you will call
it’s nonsense
that you think I protest too strongly
when really
I don’t miss you at all...

Sense and nonsense and love and loss. Nice writing as always.

yes could quick skirmish - i think the repetition nails the points well - its not nonsense Smile

A most sensible use of the prompt. You stick to the point and reiterate to drive it home. Good work.

Very well written lyrics, don't seem as a quick write and straight to the point. Very cool take on skirmish. Looking forward to hearing your lyrics.

I like the mix of sense and nonsense, this flows pretty well.

But I also see the protagonist IS actually thinking about the other person a lot. Even if it’s annoyance.
