I've been writing lots of lyrics lately. For some reason I seem to have found a lot to say. That's very strange for me. It's always been difficult for me to write, what I consider, COMPETENT lyrics. Once I get enough ideas to put something together I can usually craft it into something useable but, I have always been, primarily, a music guy. Being a wordsmith has never been one of my strengths. That being said, here's some lyrics that I think work. I just haven't written any music for them yet. I have a few of these in my archives. Something to use for future projects.


The Color Of Love

Verse

Blue is the color of moonlight
Blue is the ocean at noon
Blue as I feel after midnight
Blue as the sky in mid June

Verse

Green is the color of leaves
Green is the lust of money
Green is the envy of seeds
Green as an old copper penny

Chorus

Shadows of sorrow and shades of delight
Reflecting my feelings all through the night
As sunlight appears shining down from above
I cannot find the color of love

Verse

Red is the color of anger
Red is what runs through my veins
Red wears a warning of danger
Red is a feeling of pain

Bridge

What can I learn from the blue in your eyes
Is there love, is there hate, is there truth, or just lies
Maybe there's only reflections of me
And the wonder of life is all that I see

Chorus

Shadows of sorrow and shades of delight
Reflecting my feelings all through the night
As sunlight appears shining down from above
I still cannot find the color of love

Verse

Black is the color of silence
Black sees the absence of light
Black resounds loudly with violence
Black brings my soul to the fight

Chorus

Shadows of sorrow and shades of delight
Reflecting my feelings all through the night
As sunlight appears shining down from above
I'll search till I find the color of love

Good idea to indicate what you consider to be your verse, bridge and chorus.
Almost looks like you're starting off with the chorus there.
I'm won't be critiquing

It's a crime

I tried everything that I could
to make it work out good

Everything that I knew
to make it back up to you

chorus
I've laid it on the line, the whole world to see
Its a crime ya,ya, what you've done to me

The dream that we once knew
The dream of me and you
The dream that we once had
has somehow turned bad

chorus
I've laid it on the line the whole world to
see
Its a crime oh ya how you've treated me

Now everybody knew, just what you were up to
Everyone could see, everyone but me

Chorus
You laid it on the line the whole world to see
it's a crime oh ya, how you treated me

West Bound

Left my home in Georgia , Left on a westbound train
Ended up in Texas, the night of a driving rain

Traveled on north to Denver, worked on the Santa Fe line

When a westbound train came across the plain I left that place behind

Chorus
You know I am a drifter, yes am a travelin' man
I've been North and south, east and west and back to the south again

2nd verse
Now I caught that train the other day
don't care much where I go

I met a friend along the way, his name was Box car Joe

We made some Hobo tea, and played some cards
and sang a song or two

We'll be a thousand miles away from here before this ride is through

chorus-repeat 1st

3rd verse
Now the city life is not for me,I get lost downtown

But the country life's been hard on me I've worked my share of ground

I've worked in Lumber camps and hardware stores
and drove big rigs around

When I hear that lonesome whistle blow, time to leave that town

Chorus
You know I am a rambler yes I'm a travelin' man,
North and South East and West and back to the South again

Yes I am a drifter, everywhere is were I've been, But I'll come back home someday and find my lost old friend
