Liner Notes: 

Skirmish prompt was strange days.

Lyrics: 

Strange Days

I go about my business on a normal day
I have my eyes on the lookout for love
But as of yet it hasn’t come my way
Routine is not good for something new
You don’t get to meet other people
And the opportunities are few

I need one of those strange days
When those things don’t go to plan
Unexpected happens
For reasons you don’t understand
On those, strange days
Anything goes, in so many ways
on those strange days

I met someone in the park on an old strange day
I felt the spark as we ate our lunch
I was in shock that things had turned my way
Laughing at the jokes that we both told
I saw this could go somewhere special
Then you left me and the trail went cold

I need one of those strange days
When those things don’t go to plan
Unexpected happens
For reasons you don’t understand
On those, strange days
Anything goes, in so many ways
on those strange days

What appeals on those strange days
Is the unexpected
Spontaneity
And surprises that come your way

I hope events give me more of those good strange days
I want to find the love that I crave
I can still smile as I wait for that date
Knowing that my life can change real fast
I wake up with hope in my good good heart
That those strange days have not all passed

I need one of those strange days
When those things don’t go to plan
Unexpected happens
For reasons you don’t understand
On those, strange days
Anything goes, in so many ways
on those strange days

I like your approach to the skirmish. Beautiful things can blossom out of the strange for sure and when we least expect it.

Amazing to have written such a complete song in an hour! Great work. You have created a very good story. I liked all the contrasts between the familiar and the new.

You're right, we headed the same direction with the prompt. Lovely lyric with an interesting story, and I really like "unexpected happens for reasons you don't understand."
