New songwriter, first song. The words just spilled out while I was sitting at work due to the subject matter. I haven't figured out a melody but in my head I just hear your standard classic country ballad. I like many styles of music so maybe I should try other genres with it. Or should I stick with what's in my head?<br /> Critique / comments welcome.. thank you!<br /> <br /> By The Way<br /> Honey I just thought that I'd let you know<br /> the dishwasher's been leaking again.<br /> I guess I'll try to fix it tomorrow night<br /> because we can't afford a new one just yet.<br /> <br /> I think you know we're out of milk and butter,<br /> can you pick it up on your way home. <br /> And by the way, our anniversary's today <br /> and I still love you like I did that day.<br /> <br /> I know I promised to vaccum up the floors<br /> on the weekend, and looks like I forgot.<br /> I mowed the lawn, spent some time with our son<br /> and played my guitar, I've been doin' that a lot . <br /> <br /> I know you love to watch your TV shows, <br /> in the evening when you've had a busy day.<br /> And by the way, our anniversary's today <br /> and I still love you like I did that day.<br /> <br /> I remember it was 15 crazy years ago,<br /> you were my lover, my friend and then my wife. <br /> There was music and children and friends all gathered round<br /> to celebrate our new start in life. <br /> Since then we've been to heaven and to hell <br /> and back again so many times I know.<br /> But your love has kept us strong and together all along <br /> so I wrote this song to try to let you know.<br /> <br /> There are bills on the counter and the car is out of gas<br /> but honey they can wait til I get paid<br /> I know that life is busy sometimes,<br /> our schedules never seem to be the same.<br /> <br /> Our son needs something new for his lunchbox too<br /> since he can't bring peanut butter anymore.<br /> And by the way, our anniversary's today <br /> and I still love you like I did that day.<br /> <br /> I remember it was 15 crazy years ago,<br /> you were my lover, my friend and then my wife. <br /> There was music and children and friends all gathered round<br /> to celebrate our new start in life.<br /> Since then we've been to heaven and to hell <br /> and back again so many times I know.<br /> But your love has kept us strong and together all along <br /> so I wrote this song to say I love you so.<br /> <br /> And by the way, our anniversary's today <br /> and I still love you like I did that day.<br /> <br /> <br />

Stick with what's in your head at first. If that doesn't work then you can edit things later. I learned, a long time ago, to always trust my initial instincts.
