Yes, got hired to do that. Never got the inspiration nor chance to do it again.
Thanks. I always felt more sure-footed with the music than I have with the words. Choosing the right words to convey the feelings in time with the music in all of the voices is always a task that is daunting for me. Had a car stolen with three to four hundred tunes with lyrics a number of years ago. Never got the passion to say things twice so I did not rewrite any of it. It was as if the spirit got bottled up and trapped.
It is interesting that it was a turning point for me. I quit writing from the point of view of being hopeful that things might happen to writing about things that didn't meet those expectations and then to a looking glass viewpoint for the big picture. Damn the dues you have to pay along the way.
I just write from the heart and soul. I was lucky enough to have an adopted mother of a writer. She taught me more than school ever could. I think she taught me to be true to myself.
I just keep trying, really. Life is not really measured by dollars or power. Life is measured by creativity and effort. Successes and failures are both stumbling blocks in your life. It is your job to structure them into a bridge or stairs or a chair or any damn thing you want to. You just have to do something with what you have.
i haven't yet... should i?
I will write one for you
Back to my earlier conclution "Keep pretending", lol
Love letters and love poems but never a love song.
For sure.....someone inspired me to write a love song and watching it take shape was pure magic... :)
I've never writtenb one down but I have made up and sung many..
Sometimes when I walk on the beach alone in the Sun or under the stars at night I make up love songs and sing them aloud as I walk..
Not really. I just have a romantic imagination..
Yes...and a girl friend
