Writing A Song (With Imagery)!

…I used Lorde’s song, Writer in The Dark (co-written and co-produced by Lorde & Jack Antonoff) as a sampler while song-writing. Like I mentioned in my previous post, A Love For Haunted (Deep) Music, I adore the lyrics of this song. The song is raw, cryptic, and the lyrics (and its arrangement) are one of the reasons why it’s so impactful.

I’m not a professional (not at all), but I enjoy song-writing. To me, song-writing is both a thrilling and wishful practice.

I’ve arranged my little rookie song in a sequential manner:

  1. Verse 1 – A beginning…and sometimes referred to as the summary of the song.
  2. Chorus – The repetitive chant in a song that usually represents the main message/feel of the song.
  3. Verse 2 – Another part/persona of the song (another part of the story).
  4. Chorus*

What’s this song about?

My rookie song, Let Me Run, was written while I was feeling a brief detachment from my family. The feeling is gone now but it was once a real, crippling, occurring state of mind, and that moment had produced a song. Yet, this song could be geared towards anyone; a family member, a lover, or a friend. 

Here’s my song (and here’s what was going through my head as I wrote):

Let Me Run

Leave me in peices 7

[Verse 1]

My head is filled with pain

Let me go away

My vision’s shady, but I’m sure there is no ground now

I’ve been falling in a dark hole.

Let me run, let me run away.

 Leave me in peices 3

[Chorus]

Let me run, let run away

Into the light, into the light

You stay.

Darling please, let me go

I cannot take this no more

Leave me in peices 5

[Verse 2]

Leave me.

This is not my home

Let me find my home

Leave me.

This is not my peace

Let me find my peace

 Leave me in peices 6

[Chorus x2]

Let me run, let run away

Into the light, into the light

You stay.

Darling please, let me go

I cannot take this no more


               

   I was away from WordPress for a while b/c of unaviodable reasons…but I’m back!                        

I’ll post something new every Tuesday!
