Liner Notes: 

The idea of writing my lyric to Corinne's prompt came first but music took over so I composed my piece instead. Today though I just wanted to write what ideas were in my mind yesterday. I spent less than an hour so I can still consider my lyric as skirmish. If someone hears music please let me know. My skirmish piece doesn't go with this lyric.

Lyrics: 

Bright Star
Lyrics © 2020 Nadia Cripps

Every day, every night
You are here in my mind
You present in darkness and in light
You have always been unique, one of a kind

You went away up and above
I'm desperately lonely without you
You are my dear one, my true love
I can only see you for real in my dream's view

You are my bright star
Shining forever from a far
I need you here, back with me
Please hear my plea

Why can't my mind bring you back?
Why can't I make my special dream come true?
I keep listening to your last soundtrack
You were young, talented, you had so much to look forward to

You are my bright star
Shining forever from a far
I need you here, back with me
Please hear my plea, hear my plea



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Very relatable emotions in here - this feels very honest and spoken from the heart.

Last summer, my brother in law (and dear friend) passed away unexpectedly, and I wrote a song about him for 50/90. That song had a star reference.
So your lovely words here really affected me - especially the "dream's view" line.
I'm going to go listen to your skirmish song, too.
