Liner Notes: 

Sunday skirmish, one hour to write a song from the prompt, which for today was "Bright Star."

Lyrics: 

VERSE:
Refusal to engage
In the nonsense
That puts me in a rage
Sometimes

You remain above the fray
You may hear an insult
You let the ugly wash away
From your mind

PRE:
Don't know how you do it
Or how you stay calm through it

CHORUS:
You're a Bright Star
Showing the way
An example
A dazzling display
You don't know it
But I know that you are
And I'm so grateful for it
Yes, you're a very Bright Star

VERSE:
Revenge is not so sweet
So why
Do I enjoy that heat
Sometimes

The wheels just keep spinning
The nonsense
Erase the need for winning
From my mind

PRE:
Every time I see you
I wanna be just like youh

CHORUS:
You're a Bright Star
Showing the way
An example
A dazzling display
You don't know it
But I know that you are
And I'm so grateful for it
Yes, you're a very Bright Star

The lyric has a humbleness to it and I like the honesty that this person shares about himself to the other person. The chorus melody opens it up and is satisfying in that sense as it's like a celebration of this person. Enjoyed the piano and vocal delivery also!

Oh thats a bit different. More like i remember you when we first caught up! Not just the piano! Very beatlesque this one, lady madonnaish! Maybe. Very good skirmish.

This has a wonderful stage presence like a brilliant show tune. I love the direction that you took the lyrics and that chorus really shines! Love how the melody flows and your vocals with the keys!

A nice tribute to a role model whose character shines most in difficult times.

The piano had me instantly.
Excellent sounding piano, love the progression.
Vocal melody is catchy, accessible, the changes keep it engaging, and just overall nice to listen to.
Your lyrics are relatable. That first verse...I have been on both ends of that, and this is the first time I've seen it in words exactly what I feel sometimes.
This is endearing. I'm sure many of us can instantly think of someone who we'd like to play this to.

This has such a great classic rock vibe. That chord at the end of the chorus really lifts it! And the piano makes it all a very rich sound. Lovely work!

It has a little of that broadway musical feel to it but it is very well put together. Sounds really good.
