Lyrics

Time to wear my heart on my sleeve a bit. Music is a pursuit of mine. It captivates me because I love it, and I've got a good ear for it, and yet I can only begin to scratch the surface of what a wonder it is.

Hopefully I'll be getting a band together this coming college year. My Dungeons & Dragons buddies (some of which will be roommates) all play different instruments and it's actually a completely viable dynamic. In the meantime, I've been writing lyrics. I like opinions, critical or not.

Here's one to kick it off.

The Hollow Man

Verse 1:
I could let this tear me down
I could very well be torn asunder
Or I could grow and be made stronger
For it is now, of this very moment, decided.
I will not let the demon of doubt plunder
What little hope remains in this
Hurt little heart of mine
I must not be meek, I must not be weak.
I must rise from these ashes and be made anew

Verse 2:
I have seen time and time again
The way this can destroy a man
When there is nothing to gain
And nothing to lose, one may choose
To be utterly destroyed
I guess that could seem comfortable
For only then would the interior decorating
Match the exterior in spirit and style
So be it, if I must walk alone down the aisle

Chorus:
I simply cannot afford to become
Hollow. Empty. Devoid of life and love.
These are the things for which I pray to the skies above
That I may not become a victim, that I may be strong
That I may love again, and not become the hollow man

Bridge:
What a sorry, pathetic creature you are.
Your jealous and wrathful form is funny to me now
And while these feelings are new and bizarre
My heart knows they're right, that I must take this vow
The cruel shadow of doubt invades me
Insinuating that this change within is only temporary
I can only scoff and keep my stride
That these stupid shadows may be proven wrong, in due time.

In due time. I must be patient.
Like a sickly monk, being nursed back to health
I repeat this to myself.
In due time. I must be patient.
Time and time again I have fallen short
So He dropped me upside down, that He may be my resort
What a clever man He is, I rather like His style

Re: Lyrics

Does it have a tune? I'm having trouble finding the flow of the lyrics

No sir, sorry. I'm the type of guy to free style my lyrics over a series of chords until I'm happy with it, so I don't worry about flow in my writing too terribly much.

Not a country artist I'm afraid, but it could certainly be a country tune! Why not?

Re: Lyrics

you may want to study up on standard music formats for various music types although they change VERY greatly there are some basic music structures that you can start learning as you get better.

Re: Lyrics

I used to white a lot of lyrics so I have some experience lol

You and I have very different styles of writing. You write more freestyle whereas I always write structured and count syllables and construct rhyme schemes and stuff lol

Everything I write has to flow
