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.<br /> <br /> <br /> The Color Of Love<br /> <br /> Verse<br /> <br /> Blue is the color of moonlight<br /> Blue is the ocean at noon<br /> Blue as I feel after midnight<br /> Blue as the sky in mid June<br /> <br /> Verse<br /> <br /> Green is the color of leaves<br /> Green is the lust of money<br /> Green is the envy of seeds<br /> Green as an old copper penny<br /> <br /> Chorus<br /> <br /> Shadows of sorrow and shades of delight<br /> Reflecting my feelings all through the night<br /> As sunlight appears shining down from above<br /> I cannot find the color of love<br /> <br /> Verse<br /> <br /> Red is the color of anger<br /> Red is what runs through my veins<br /> Red wears a warning of danger<br /> Red is a feeling of pain<br /> <br /> Bridge<br /> <br /> What can I learn from the blue in your eyes<br /> Is there love, is there hate, is there truth, or just lies<br /> Maybe there's only reflections of me<br /> And the wonder of life is all that I see<br /> <br /> Chorus<br /> <br /> Shadows of sorrow and shades of delight<br /> Reflecting my feelings all through the night<br /> As sunlight appears shining down from above<br /> I still cannot find the color of love<br /> <br /> Verse<br /> <br /> Black is the color of silence<br /> Black sees the absence of light<br /> Black resounds loudly with violence<br /> Black brings my soul to the fight<br /> <br /> Chorus<br /> <br /> Shadows of sorrow and shades of delight<br /> Reflecting my feelings all through the night<br /> As sunlight appears shining down from above<br /> I'll search till I find the color of love<br />

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

It's a crime<br /> <br /> I tried everything that I could<br /> to make it work out good<br /> <br /> Everything that I knew<br /> to make it back up to you<br /> <br /> chorus<br /> I've laid it on the line, the whole world to see<br /> Its a crime ya,ya, what you've done to me<br /> <br /> The dream that we once knew<br /> The dream of me and you<br /> The dream that we once had<br /> has somehow turned bad<br /> <br /> chorus<br /> I've laid it on the line the whole world to <br /> see<br /> Its a crime oh ya how you've treated me<br /> <br /> Now everybody knew, just what you were up to<br /> Everyone could see, everyone but me<br /> <br /> Chorus<br /> You laid it on the line the whole world to see<br /> it's a crime oh ya, how you treated me<br />

West Bound<br /> <br /> Left my home in Georgia , Left on a westbound train<br /> Ended up in Texas, the night of a driving rain<br /> <br /> Traveled on north to Denver, worked on the Santa Fe line <br /> <br /> When a westbound train came across the plain I left that place behind <br /> <br /> Chorus<br /> You know I am a drifter, yes am a travelin' man<br /> I've been North and south, east and west and back to the south again<br /> <br /> 2nd verse<br /> Now I caught that train the other day<br /> don't care much where I go<br /> <br /> I met a friend along the way, his name was Box car Joe<br /> <br /> We made some Hobo tea, and played some cards<br /> and sang a song or two<br /> <br /> We'll be a thousand miles away from here before this ride is through<br /> <br /> chorus-repeat 1st<br /> <br /> 3rd verse<br /> Now the city life is not for me,I get lost downtown<br /> <br /> But the country life's been hard on me I've worked my share of ground<br /> <br /> I've worked in Lumber camps and hardware stores<br /> and drove big rigs around<br /> <br /> When I hear that lonesome whistle blow, time to leave that town<br /> <br /> Chorus<br /> You know I am a rambler yes I'm a travelin' man,<br /> North and South East and West and back to the South again<br /> <br /> Yes I am a drifter, everywhere is were I've been, But I'll come back home someday and find my lost old friend<br /> <br /> <br />
