Liner Notes: 

Skirmish prompt: Bag of Broken Glass

Please go to Colleen’s amazing demo:

http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/51288

Just saw there was a Friday skirmish and had to start the day writing to it

I wrote this with a driving pinkish rock song in my head where the bridge is layered vocals with
“my heart…” soaring and sustained and “was shattered into jagged fragments” being sung with attitude underneath it

Open to ideas and collaborations

I could also hear it more country

Lyrics: 

V1
you walked right out then
you slammed the door
the heart on my sleeve
dropped to the floor

it broke into pieces
couldn’t break any more
now I feel this pain
I’ve never felt before

PC
my heart’s…a bag… of broken glass…

C
my heart’s been
a bag of broken glass
since you…left me

my heart’s been
a bag of broken glass
I can’t stop…the bleed

my heart’s been
a bag of broken glass
since you’ve…been gone

and this broken glass
kills me all night
and all …day long

V2
I’m in constant pain
thinking about us
it is like a slow death
by a thousand cuts

jagged shards, slivers
sharp fragments of you
painful reminders of
of the bloody truth

PC
my heart’s..a bag…of broken glass…

C
my heart has been
a bag of broken glass
since you …left me

my heart’s has been
a bag of broken glass
I can’t stop …the bleed

my heart’s has been
a bag of broken glass
since you’ve …been gone

and this broken glass
now stabs me all night
and all …day long

B
oh my heart…
was shattered into jagged fragments

yeah my heart…
was shattered into jagged fragments

oh my heart..
was shattered into jagged fragments

all that is left is this bloody bag
of broken glass…

when will this pass?…..

C
my heart has been
a bag of broken glass
since you …left me

my heart’s has been
a bag of broken glass
I can’t stop …the bleed

my heart’s has been
a bag of broken glass
since you’ve …been gone

and this broken glass
now stabs me all night
and all …day long



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

Very cool @kahlo! Thanks for playing along. This seems very singable to me, and I can feel the twang possible in singing the words. Nice job!

Amazing writing Liz, very strong and poignant. Broken glass=broken love=broken heart idea is coming through with every word. Hope to hear your beautiful lyrics.

May I please, please, please have a go at setting this one to music? This one really speaks to me. Sometimes skirmish writes pull out the best lyrics!

Such a great write!! Yes, this has P!nk vibes for sure. Love the chorus and how you threaded the "broken glass" elements throughout the lyrics. Can't wait to listen to Colgoo's demo!
