  1. January Lyrics Contest

    Black And White Days (V1) Back in the days when life was black and white Work was murder grafting every day and night The homeless slept in doorways the righteous prayed The poor starved to death while the upper class played. (Ch) In the black and white days, life was tough for working folk So little on the table, we could just barely cope We were all short of money, but there was plenty soft soap Back in the black and white days (V2) Then very slowly lifestyle started to change Not all for the good, we still got a basic wage The food on the table filled our plates ok Life was better than the black and white days (Ch) In the black and white days, life was tough for working folk So little on the table, we could just barely cope, We were all short of money, but there was plenty soft soap Back in the black and white days (Br) I was becoming more socially aware We were no longer stuck in the poverty snare Cinema was fab in its technicolor phase Gone for good were the black and white days (Ch) In the black and white days, life was tough for working folk So little on the table, we could just barely cope, We were all short of money, but there was plenty soft soap Back in the black and white days (V3) In these multicolor days we fear for our life Fanatics with bombs and guns or a knife Global warming horrors. Man's polluting craze Was life better in the black and white days (Ch) In the black and white days, life was tough for working folk So little on the table, we could just barely cope We were all short of money, but there was plenty soft soap Back in the black and white days (Final) Life was better, in the black and white days.

    Collateral Beauty Intro: There is a place light fears to shine Past won't erase and light never shines Misery, sorrow where light can not shine There is no tomorrow when light can not shine Verse 1: Sit down at the table got some food for thought a kind of mental existential homemade booster shot Is there a greater purpose? Some hidden motivation? A "why" for all the trials and tribulation? Maybe just abstractions Love, Death, and Time three universal truths connecting mankind We long for love and fear our death time moves too fast towards that final breath But warning, warning you can't change fate no matter how you plan it and strive to cogitate The sick get sicker and bodies they decay The child deep inside won't come out to play Forever lost this black hole spins eternal a collapsing cry to Dante's fire infernal Let the storm winds rage as the dominoes fall disappearing my soul into nothing at all Chorus: See the collateral beauty may it rise above the pain in collateral beauty your life begins again Verse 2: Cells, ancestry and DNA The recipe and map for who we are today But do our friends, family and work define us? What if we emanate light passion and kindness? To the fabric of every single life we touch Will finer things of money even matter that much? So smile and get lifted to a higher plane like an earworm carries catchy little notes to your brain You've been given a gift for God's sake don't waste it The buffet's still open just walk up and taste it Chorus: See the collateral beauty may it rise above the pain in collateral beauty your life begins again Outro: The collateral beauty collateral beau...u...u...u...ty The collateral beauty collateral beau...u...u...u...ty

    Jenny Lei Verse 1 Stereo light is blinking green Like the flicker of a lightning bug Cherry red lips reflect the sheen As I snuggle in for a hug Verse 2 Car’s windows fogged; radio’s blasting Pounding out a country melody Moon is full, bright and shining I’ve got both arms around Jenny Lei Chorus Jenny Lei’s hair smells like flowers Her breath is warm spiced tea I could hold her in my arms for hours I’m in love with Jenny Lei Bridge Lord, if I have to beg or borrow Let me live to see the rising sun If I have to die, let it be tomorrow Tonight I’m having too much fun Chorus Jenny Lei’s hair smells like flowers Her breath is warm spiced tea I could hold her in my arms for hours I’m in love with Jenny Lei Tag Yes, I’m in love with Jenny Lei

    PART TIME LOVERV1I know I'm your part time lover I don't ever get to stayMaking love to you at midnight Long gone... by the break of day V2Knowing I can never have youI still feel it's worth the cost Just to hold you and then leave youPlaying games, already lostCHORUS:Part time lover never lingersKnows just when the job is through Never hoping, never askingNever hearing I love youBRIDGE:There's no blame for what I've chosen I'm the one who makes the callThat this part time love is betterThan to have no love at allV3No warm body I can cling toNothing left for me to keepOnly memories of your fragranceWhen I lay me down to sleepCHORUS:Part time lover never lingersKnows just when the job is through Never hoping, never askingNever hearing I love you

    California I'm going to California I just put gas in the tank And I don't need no roadmap 'Cause I'm sure I'll find my way I'm going to see the ocean Where they say there's no memory It may be the one thing I have left But the last thing that I need oh... counting the days away... away oh... counting the days away... away I'm going to California Packed some clothes and cigarettes Haven't been there since I was just a kid And hopefully it'll be like I never left And I will drive into the ocean My car just like a boat Taking me to the side I've never seen Whether I sink or float oh... counting the days away... away oh... counting the days away... away Been such a long time since I've felt the sun shine on my face Been such a long time since I've felt the sun shine on my face Been such a long time since I've felt the the sun shining on my face I'm going to California

    Came in a Dream She’s on my mind, I can’t shake her Others cringe, they can’t take her Hope she’ll return when they unbreak her None of this is how it ought to be She’s only here in absentia Fighting off a dark dementia One day she will be all right In the quiet of the early morning light (Pre-chorus) Warhol can without a label Spill the beans across the table Give a damn unlike Clark Gable All of this came in a dream She came in a dream (Chorus) Want her back ’cause she’s my sister No one knows how much I’ve missed her One day we will reunite In the quiet of the early morning light (Bridge) A drinker of absinthe Who tripped down the stairs She’s trapped in a labyrinth And I’m the only single one who cares (Pre-chorus) Warhol can without a label Spill the beans across the table Give a damn unlike Clark Gable All of this came in a dream She came in a dream She came in a dream She came in a dream (Chorus) Want her back ’cause she’s my sister No one knows how much I’ve missed her One day we will reunite In the quiet of the early morning light Want her back ’cause she’s my sister No one knows how much I’ve missed her One day we will reunite In the quiet of the early morning light Want her back ’cause she’s my sister No one knows how much I’ve missed her One day we will both take flight In the quiet of the early morning light

    WHAT ABOUT (Verse 1) I hear your back in town I felt it in my chest A dozen years ago I thought had laid to rest I want to see you Want to hear your voice But I won’t get to Because you made your choice (Chorus) What about St. Louis And the football game What about all night talking And the way you said my name What about your grandma’s house What about the ring Please don’t forget While your remembering (Verse 2) Wonder about Facebook Would I see you there I still get taken aback When your cologne is in the air It’s like resurrected memories I buried long ago I remember everything Except why I let you go (Chorus 2) What about our first kiss And the park we liked to go What about the love we had That no one could know What about the touch on the cheek And the warmth it brings Please don’t forget While your remembering (Verse 3) What about the way I still feel today What about…

    Starting low I had a look around and what did I see How everything has been effecting me I never had a promise or happy thought's At this point in my life I thought there be lots My tires are spinning never really digging in You think one of these day I'd eventually win chorus I have to start low before I can climb high I lift my arms up when I ask you why Ill turn my head and have a look around Anchor my feet, keep em planted on the ground When I Lift my head I'll look you straight in the eye I'm gonna tell you the truth no I'm not gonna lie Now I'm sitting on the corner of my old bed Sheets all messed up girl you're in my head Three days of growth has darkened my face I can't keep chasing you at this pace That's why I asked you to please slow down Give me a chance let me gain some ground Chorus I have to start low before I can climb high I lift my arms up and ask you why Ill turn my head and have a look around Anchor my feet, keep em planted on the ground When I Lift my head I'll look you straight in the eye I'm gonna tell you the truth no I'm not gonna lie Anxiety still takes my breath every day But I'm winning that battle in a different way I'm learning to push all those nervous feelings down Getting a little stronger starting to gain some ground You asked a little question about what I did with my life I told you I do it all again if I thought I was in the right Chorus I have to start low before I can climb high I lift my arms up and ask you why Ill turn my head and have a look around Anchor my feet, keep em planted on the ground When I Lift my head I'll look you straight in the eye I'm gonna tell you the truth no I'm not gonna lie I have to start low before I can climb high I lift my arms up and ask you why Ill turn my head and have a look around Anchor my feet, keep em planted on the ground When I Lift my head I'll look you straight in the eye I'm gonna tell you the truth no I'm not gonna lie
