Oftentimes when a certain concept has been really striking me or lying heavy on my mind for a while, I come to a point where I need to overflow and it's often onto paper. I enjoy writing so this is a familiar way for me to free my mind. If I'm in the middle of a story and I can work it in, I'll do so, perhaps causing some indignant words to flow from the mouths of my characters that seem incongruent with the story. If, like now, I am trying to take a break from writing books to catch up on the myriad of other things that make up my life, these thoughts remain pent up in my mind a little longer...which almost always causes them to end up on paper with a rhyme, a rythym, and a bit of tune...
Could be called the lyrics to a song...
After a bit of perfecting I take my laptop to the piano and try and put my tune on the keys, which usually results in my recording to my laptop a new little bit of piano playing.
Which said recording has definite tune to it, but would be rather lame as an actual song if it were just piano and singing.
I personally am partial to the sound of electric guitar (especially bass) and drum sets. Sadly (to me anyway)we don't own those instruments despite the fact that we have a whole collection of instruments including some (very) unusual ones.
With a bit of drum added to the piano, perhaps a violin, and an acoustic or electric guitar, these songs wouldn't be all that bad. But for now I am leaving them at the piano stage.
I thought I would post some of the lyrics to one of my more recent songs, called:
feeds us worldviews
different than God’s word
And oftentimes we suck it in
They say “Someday your Prince will come”
But that’s not always true
They say no harm will be done
Make last first kiss sound so sweet
They call good bad and evil good
They make good look dark and scary
They put the bad in a field of flowers
With a sunset, water and sparkly lights
But it’s all
It doesn’t look as popular
nor as beautiful to you
Because you’ve been deceived
And accepted their worldview
They make the story however they want
Stealing gets applause and truthfulness a grunt
Rebellion is applauded while obedience decried,
In real life it doesn’t work that way it’s an outright lie
But they make the lies seem beautiful
and wickedness so cool
That we easily get drawn away
and allow the lies to rule
And their lies lead to destruction
their path leads down to death
so guard your heart, mind, soul, and eyes
with every waking breath
Cause it’s all fairytales
They capture your heart
and excite your poor mind
They capture your fancy and
make wiser eyes blind
They draw you away and
They poison your mind
They make you start looking
For things you can’t find
When you should seek God and
to live by His law for their
attractive lies are fairytales
and aren’t true at all
God’s word alone contains the truth
though the path is narrow and the way is hard
that path alone will lead to life
so follow it with all you are
Cause the world cannot give you truth
the best that they can give you is a dressed up lie
And it’s all Fairytales
This isn't the entire song but these are the best lines and will give you the general idea. What do you think?
