I'm new, and I want to see what ideas other people have.

I challenge you to write a song in which the duration is under 2 minutes.

Here's mine, it's about my grandmother.

I want to feel your hand in mine,

And I want to see your face again.

What I’d give to say grace one more time

Just to hear you say “Amen”

 

I want to walk into your home once more,

Or feel your arms around me.

But when mom spoke at your funeral,

I cried with the whole family.

 

And yes you’re gone,

But I can’t get over you.

You’re gone,

But I can’t seem to get over you.

 

Maybe I don’t want to forget.

Challenge accepted.  :P    OK.  I don't know the significance of having something under 2 minutes but I think this will do. 

 

Don't Run Away

 

It took a while

To break the ice

Stay with me baby

That would really be nice

 

Don't run away

When I'm loving you

Don't run away

When you know it's true

 

I got to you

When you were down  

Showed you my heart  

And then you came around

 

Don't run away

When I'm loving you

Don't run away

When you know it's true

 

Don't let fear come between

The two of us and all our dreams

How do you know that the SONGS will be under two minutes long when there's only words? There may be an intro, a long instrumental part in the middle, and an outro. If Led Zeppelin had done them they'd last around 8 minutes each ;-)

This is 1:49, by the way (150 bpm):
 

you have lots of admirers
you can afford to take your pick
secretely I wait for you
to get rid of your current prick  

 

I'm standing in the row, I'm next in line
you won't keep me waiting, you are being kind
I'll be served in a minute, so I'll be fine
don't you worry little Baby, I'm next in line

 

doin' my Friday shopping
I think I've got all I need
today I'll do the cooking
I've got a few mouths to feed

 

I'm standing in the row, I'm next in line
they won't keep me waiting, they're all being kind
I'll be served in a minute, so I'll be fine
don't you worry little Baby, I'm next in line

 

I've lived life to the fullest
I hardly ever missed a trick
the writing on the wall says
soon my clock will cease to tick

 

I'm standing in the row, I'm next in line
they won't keep me waiting, they're all being kind
I'll be served in a minute, so I'll be fine
don't you worry little Baby, I'm next in line
