July Lyrics Competition

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone - 

 

Welcome to the July lyrics competition!

 

 
The timeline is:

 

 Entries will be accepted now through Midnight Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) Sunday, July 30

 Voting (scorecards) will take place Saturday July 31 through Tuesday Midnight (PDT) 8th August .  (I extended this deadline because I made a mistake in my "submit your scores" post and said the deadline was 8th!

 

• Don't start voting until I officially post the scoring instructions.

• I'll post the results shortly after scoring has concluded

 

cool.gifHere are the rules:cool.gif

 

 

1) It has to be an original lyric that has not been posted on this site previously

 

2) Send your submission to me (fabkebab) via private message and I will post it anonymously on your behalf. The names of each lyric writer will be revealed at the end of the contest.

 

3) Once you enter your lyric, you cannot change or revise it, or submit another in its place.

 

4) I will submit it as is, so watch your format and your spelling. I will not change any of your errors after the lyric has been posted.

 

5) If you enter, you must submit scores for the other lyrics when the submission portion of the contest ends.

 

All Musers are welcome to submit songs as contestants or score the songs as non-contestants.

Any questions or problems should be sent to me (fabkebab) via private message (PM).

 

As I have done previously, I may enter a lyric of my own, just for scoring purposes - It cannot win, will not have scores posted, and will immediately be disqualified once voting has completed (although I will own up to my lyric)

I'm Sober Sophie


I stop thinking, when i start drinking.  
That's what you always say.
I get too juiced,  and my mouth runs loose
And people stare, but hey
'Cause you know who, loves, Y-O-U
Not gonna keep it inside. 

 

I'm sober Sophie. Can't blame today on the beer.   
I'm sober Sophie. L' tell anyone who comes near
I'm sober Sophie. I really want you to know. 
I'm sober Sophie. Girl I just love you so. 


I stop thinking, when I start drinking.  
That's what you said to me.  
I say too much, 'cause I'm such a lush
But I'm not drinking today. 
What can I do, m'crazy 'bout you
Not gonna keep it inside

 

I'm sober Sophie. Can't blame today on the beer. 
I'm sober Sophie. Something you gotta hear. 
I'm sober Sophie.  I really want you to know.
I'm sober Sophie. Girl I just love you so. 

 

I think, you don't want to hear it.       
You blame it on the beer it
ain't the beer talking now. 

 

I'm sober Sophie. Can't blame today on the beer. 
I'm sober Sophie. I'll whisper if you come near. 
I'm sober Sophie. I really want you to know. 
I'm sober Sophie. Girl I just love you so.

Bedside lamplight SOS

Hallowed help, to god I pray,
The path you walk leads you this way.
I'm sure it won't, but just incase,
I'll leave some beacons in my wake.

Please find the trail of teardrops I have left,
Or trace the line of stars that I have wished upon instead.
Can't you hear this broken heart beat distress calls from my chest,
See my bedside, lamplight, SOS

Sainted saviour save my soul,
Can't fight this loneliness alone.
'cause wishful thinking's nothing new,
I'll fire some flares up high for you.

Please find the trail of teardrops I have left,
Or trace the line of stars that I have wished upon instead
Can't you hear this broken heart beat distress calls from my chest,
See my bedside, lamplight, SOS

No shining knight of chivalry,
No kiss of of life to rescue me,
But just because you never know,
I'll post some signs up where I go.

Please find the trail of teardrops I have left,
Or trace the line of stars that I have wished upon instead
Can't you hear this broken heart beat distress calls from my chest,
See my bedside, lamplight, SOS

Party Till I Die

Verse 1:
Got the music pumpin'
up to eleven
some cold beer flowing
in my little heaven

Everything's just right
and everything's just right

Feel the beat of the base
as it rattles your bones
pulsating lights
and sweet pheromones

Let's rock it tonight
Oh rock it tonight

Chorus:
Turn the key
let's start it up

Break free, run wild
and rev it up

Get freaky loose
pump pump it up

Go crazy nuts
man live it up

These are the things you just can't buy
gonna party till I die

Verse 2:
You dance through the night
lit up by the stars
bodies in heat
and whirling guitars

Hope it never stops
Pray it never stops

It's the call of the wild
that can't be explained
flows through your heart
and into your brain

And you just can't stop
No it just won't stop

Chorus:
Turn the key
let's start it up

Break free, run wild
and rev it up

Get freaky loose
pump pump it up

Go crazy nuts
man live it up

These are the things you just can't buy
gonna party till I die

Open those wings
and let your spirit fly
gonna party till I die

Rear-View Mirror


Duffel bags are packed
I’ve tossed ’em in the trunk
I sold off my appliances
And threw out piles of junk

 

There’s just no use in staying
When someone breaks your heart
You could live on the memories
But that don’t seem too smart

 

(Chorus)
LA’s in my rear-view mirror
I would look but I might see her
There ain’t nothing that could hurt me more
So goodbye smog and goodbye beaches
Got to hope that loving teaches
What it is I am living for
And as I’m closing one
I’m opening another door

 

When I first reached the coast
I thought I’d found my home
And then I thought I’d found true love
And now I’m all alone

 

(Chorus)
LA’s in my rear-view mirror
I would look but I might see her
There ain’t nothing that could hurt me more
So goodbye smog and goodbye beaches
Got to hope that loving teaches
What it is I am living for
And as I’m closing one
I’m opening another door

 

(Bridge)
I’d never met a woman like her
She made me laugh and dance and hurt and cry
One moonless night in Silver Lake
She called it all a big mistake
And then she up and left
Nearly stopped my breath
And now I’ll look for love somewhere beneath a different sky

 

(Chorus)
LA’s in my rear-view mirror
I would look but I might see her
There ain’t nothing that could hurt me more
So goodbye smog and goodbye beaches
Got to hope that loving teaches
What it is I am living for
And as I’m closing one
I’m opening another door
(Repeat)

What Use To Be

 

A worn out book
Sits on the shelf
Covered in dust
The words have faded
The ink has run dry
Makes me wonder

Where are we going
What have we become
A fairytale gone wrong
What we used to dream
Has lost it's charm

A empty swing
Out in the backyard
Hanging from a tree
A Rope so frayed
It's about to break
Still I wonder

Where are we going
What have we become
A child's game cast aside
What use to bring joy
now breaks a heart

What use to be
Blew away
On the wind
Time moved on
If only we could
Start over
Again

The wrong stuff

 

1/

On a park bench at lunchtime

It's just you, fresh air and me

Seeking some calm

In natures company

Children with their mothers

A a bird is flying by

An escape from work

Where the pressure is getting very high

 

Ch/

And you're saying I‘m the wrong stuff

That I’m weak and I will fail ,  I’m not good enough

And I’m making a mistake

Like you want me to break

 

2/

I was brought up to be different

Not to let anyone treat me badly

To own my life

But it can't be that way sadly

You're more than skin deep

You're in the heart of me

The exception to the rule

About giving no time to an enemy

 

Ch/

And you're saying I‘m the wrong stuff

That I’m weak and I will fail ,  I’m not good enough

And I’m making a mistake

Like you want me to break

 

Br/

Lunch time over, and its back to the grind

Hoped that the fresh air would help me unwind

But then you showed up and ruined the hour

Both hunter and prey talking on in my mind

 

Ch/

And you're saying I‘m the wrong stuff

That I’m weak and I will fail ,  I’m not good enough

And I’m making a mistake

Like you want me to break

Comeback Kid

(Intro)
What doesn't kill us will make us stronger
And I'm battered and bruised,
Look into the eyes of any winner
They hit the ropes and paid their dues.

(Verse 1)
I had both my eyes
Set on the prize
And a heart that'll never fail,
But I came up short
Of the dream I'd bought
Couldn't grasp that holy grail. 

 

(Pre Chorus)
But
I'll come back later and I'll come back stronger
And the time that passes won't quell my hunger
I'll learn to be a little wiser
This was just the appetiser

(Chorus)
I'll be the COMEBACK KID
You better believe
My name's on that Trophy
Heart's on my sleeve!
I'll be the COMEBACK KID
Comeback kid
My day in the sun
I'm gonna earn it!

(Verse 2)
I had a bad surprise
Was cut down to size
And the loss was hard to take,
Yes, I came up short
Of where I'd thought
This journey's end would be made.

 

(Pre Chorus)
But
I'll come back later and I'll come back stronger
And the time that passes won't quell my hunger
I'll learn to be a little wiser
This was just the appetiser

(Chorus)
I'll be the COMEBACK KID
You better believe
My name's on that Trophy
Heart's on my sleeve!
I'll be the COMEBACK KID
Comeback kid
My day in the sun
I'm gonna earn it!

(Verse 3)
Now reject the lies
No more alibis
And nothin’ standing in my way,
I may have come up short
But the lesson's taught
Won't repeat mistakes again.

(Pre Chorus)
Yeah
I'll come back later and I'll come back stronger
And the time that passes won't quell my hunger
I've learnt to be a little wiser
That was just the appetiser

(Chorus)
I'll be the COMEBACK KID
You better believe
My name's on that Trophy
Heart's on my sleeve!
I'll be the COMEBACK KID
Comeback kid
My day in the sun
I'm gonna earn it!

 

(Spoken outro – Muhammed Ali quote)

‘Only a man who knows what it is to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even’.

Vortex of Fire                

 

I wake late at night
Can't seem to sleep
Dripping in sweat
This fantasy's deep
An image of you
Chiseled and tan
Stimulates my senses
You are the man

 

Cover my body
Breathe on my face
Hold me down in the passion   
Hear our hearts race
Flex every muscle
Kiss these lips of desire
I want to feel your power
A vortex of fire
A vortex 
A vortex
A vortex of fire

 

I run my fingers
Through your black hair
As heat builds up
Eyes lock in a stare
You whisper softly   
Pumping your chest
I lick your salty skin
That is touching my breast

 

Cover my body
Breathe on my face
Hold me down in the passion   
Hear our hearts race
Flex every muscle
Kiss these lips of desire
I want to feel your power
A vortex of fire
A vortex 
A vortex
A vortex of fire

 

When I fall back to sleep
I hope my dream comes true
How I wish you were here
In bed with me too

 

Cover my body
Breathe on my face
Hold me down in the passion   
Hear our hearts race
Flex every muscle
Kiss these lips of desire
I want to feel your power
A vortex of fire
A vortex 
A vortex
A vortex of fire

Riding In Different Cars

You always let me sing before

Your favourite hard core troubadour

But I can’t do that anymore

Riding in different cars

 

 

We used to take the grandest tours

Now it’s “why’d we even come here for?”

I looked so hard through those brochures

Now lying in different cars

 

 

I know you’re somewhere staring out that window

Sad and lingering distance in your eyes

I try to talk but you’re no longer listening

A passenger surrendering to time

And even if I thought we tried the very best we could

It seems that neither one of us was ever any good

Which puts us where we are

Riding in different cars

 

 

Dismay does not describe the things I’m tired of

While profanity of chance has not quite left enough

But give me time I’ll find our words

For riding in different cars

 

 

Give me time I’ll find our words

For riding in different cars

Yeah, give me time I’ll find the words

For riding in different cars

Hello Piano

 

Hello Piano
May I sit with you a spell?
My mind's been through a lot today
But my heart has been though hell
Your keys feel so familiar in my hands
It's so nice to find you waiting here
To comfort an old friend

 

Oh, my Piano
That funeral was tough
The more I tried to hold my tears
The more they wouldn't stop
And people searching for a caring word
Just echoed "Sorry for your loss"
Their eyes fixed on the floor

 

{pre}
But you know what I came here for..

 

{ch}
Let's play a song that lifts us far from here
That frolics in fond memories, and lives in joyful years
We'll leave this sad and senseless day behind
For at least a little time
At least a little time...

 

{instr}

 

So now, Piano
Guess I'll close you now and go
Though I'd love to spend forever here
There are those I must console
You've helped me keep this darkened cloud at bay
Consumed me with your magic
Just like every time we play

 

So I'll be back here soon, to say..

 

Hello Piano
Let's play a song that lifts us far from here
That frolics in fond memories, and lives in joyful years
We'll leave this sad and senseless world behind
For at least a little time
At least a little time

Head stuck on the boxy gray screen

 

Verse:

Mother is sick in bed very next door.

The kid leaves an updates instead look -

"Please pray for my Mom, she is very sick".

Then takes a selfie like a narcissist whore.

 

Verse:

There is a deep sickness spreading

Which is modern world delivering.

Head stuck on the boxy gray screen,

Gaining nothing but finger scrolling.

 

Chorus:

Addicts are evolving, followers are floating.

Communications are Digitalize.

Forget a warm hug to feel alive.

 

Bridge:

The whole world is open now to share.

Too much information is available there.

Too easy to get just as easy to forget.

No establishment deep inside our mind.

 

Verse:

There is a deep sickness spreading

Which is modern world delivering.

Head stuck on the boxy gray screen,

Gaining nothing but finger scrolling.

Communications are Digitalize.

Forget a warm hug to feel alive.

Sing Us Both To Heaven

 

 

Well, you're a thief and I'm a beggar
Circling round this love together
Each one taking more than we would give
Those willing hearts that we once plundered
Their broken weight now pulls us under
And we have both forgotten how to live

 

Chorus:
And if I could
I would wrap us up in my guitar
And sing us both to heaven
I'd sing us both
All the way to heaven

 

I'm showing kings but you've got aces
Time to pack our sad suitcases
Every day's a hand that we should fold
We bet on love in all its glory
Believing all those made up stories
But every day we just keep growing old

 

Chorus:
And if I could
I would wrap us up in my guitar
And sing us both to heaven
I'd sing us both
All the way to heaven

 

Bridge
This avalanche of might have beens has buried us alive
How many times has love come round and not been recognized
And all those hard decisions that never turned out well
We thought they promised heaven but all we found was hell

 

Chorus:
And if I could
I would wrap us up in my guitar
And sing us both to heaven
I'd sing us both
All the way to heaven

Suzy Loves Me True

 

 

 

Verse 1

 

I thought it would be over

 

She’d be on the run

 

Like some shadow lover

 

Gone with the morning sun

 

 

 

Verse 2

 

But she’s here beside me

 

Holding to my hand

 

We’re watching the sun rise

 

Over this glorious land

 

 

 

Chorus

 

Walking in the surf

 

Water lapping at our feet

 

Sand pipers near the reef

 

Dipping beaks to eat

 

Sun peeking in the eastern sky

 

Lighting a world of blue

 

I see the way she smiles

 

Suzy loves me true

 

 

 

Bridge

 

I’ve been gone a year

 

Duty has been rough

 

Love learns to endure

 

As hearts learn to trust

 

 

 

Chorus

 

Walking in the surf

 

Water lapping at our feet

 

Sand pipers near the reef

 

Dipping beaks to eat

 

Sun peeking in the eastern sky

 

Lighting a world of blue

 

I see the way she smiles

 

Suzy loves me true

 

 

 

Tag

 

I see the way she smiles

 

Yes, Suzy loves me true

That Night You Danced with Me

 

           

V1

Lakeside dance

Killin’ time

Summer resort on my parents’ dime

 

V2

Just showed up

For somethin’ to do

All that changed when I laid eyes on you

 

V3

Your arms were tan

Your dress was white

I asked you to dance, the music was right

 

We swayed together like willows in a breeze

 

Chorus:

And I felt my world turn around that night

That night you danced with me

 

V4

I asked your name

You took my hand

Swept me up in a wonderland

 

 

We sat by the lake and talked together till three

 

 

Chorus:

And I felt my world turn around that night

That night you danced with me

 

 

Bridge:

Do you marvel at the role of chance

How it changed our lives at a summer dance

A fateful glance and our course was set

Imagine if we’d never met

 

 

V5

Together for years

Still a romance

Our son is off at the summer dance

 

 

Maybe he’ll see a girl like you were to me

           

Chorus:

And he’ll feel his world turn around like that night

That night you danced with me

 

 

(Instrumental Bridge)

 

 

And I still can’t believe the miracle of that night

That night you danced with me

Better by far

 

I bought myself this old house the place is cold and damp

Upstairs lets in all the light and downstairs needs a lamp

I couldn't use the front room and I shouldn't use the back

But It's better by far I tell you than The house I used to have.  

 

I got myself this old job working in the bar

Whenever I get thirsty I have me self a jar

But I drink all the profits up and have to pay them back 

But it's better by far I tell ya than the job I used to have

 

I married myself this ole wife she nags me till she's blue

She says I never listen to her, she doesn't know it's true

She calls me ole dog lazy and says I'm just as bad

But she's better by far I tell ya than the wife I used to have 

 

I bought me self this old car we took it for a ride

We went to see the mother in law but never did arrive

'Cos the old thing blew a gasket which shattered through the rad

But it's better by far I tell ya than the car I used to have

 

I drove home from the pub one night drunker than a louse

Swerved to miss me lazy dog and crashed right through the house

The house and cars a write off and the wife is just as bad 

But it's better by far I tell you than some of the crashes I've had

 

Well life is really something now, new house, new wife, new car

The insurance paid up lots of dough and I'm in Shangri-la

And when I look back on me life then I feel really glad

'Cos it's better by far, much better by far than the life I used to have.

Hey buddy my car just broke down

Yeah I’m stuck out here on Jensen Road

Getting dark and could use a hand

For those 2 hard days you helped me move

But I got some friends from out of town

You know I’d be there if I could

 

Ch:

Sorry, I got to go

You know I hate to say no

But maybe the next time

Yeah, maybe the next time

 

V:

Buddy I’m calling from this cold jail

Hoping you can lend me a hand

I need someone to help make bail

 

Oh man you just caught me leaving

Had a cold beer at Connie’s bar

Got a great deal on my trade in

And love the ride on my new car

 

Ch:

So maybe I’ll catch you the next time

Sorry, I got to go

You know I hate to say no

But maybe the next time

Yeah, maybe the next time

I’m sure maybe the next time

Whah ?? I don't believe it!

Totally humbled by this honour - thanks all for the support.

Congrats to iggy and peko - great lyrics, both.

And to all the other reindeer - a strong month this was.

Big thanks to fab for hosting - the pay's no hell but at least it's not a thankless job :)

 

I'm going out right now to buy some lottery tickets 'cause this was just sh*t luck :)

 

Paul

Thanks to Fab for running this contest. I never do well and I rarely pick the winners (That night you danced and What use to be) yet I enjoy the challenge of writing just to keep my mind stimulated. Congrats to those who did well.

Well done to Paul and Iggy and a big thanks to Fabkebab for running the contest.

 

I thought there were lots of very good entries. My personal favourite was Graybeard's Suzy loves me true, and then I had Bedside Lamplight SOS, Riding in different cars, Sing us both to heaven and I'm sober Sophie. For the latter though, I think the lyric might have scored better if the title was 'I'm sober, Sophie'

Yes SongWolfe, I agree that comma might have made a difference, but after I saw the caliber of the entries this month, I kind of knew it might be tough.  I can't believe I completely missed that typo, (no comma) throughout the entire lyric. It does change the meaning if you don't realize a comma belonged there. Hehe.

Paul,

 

It wasn't luck!  You deserved it!

 

Thank you and Kuya and John, Barneyboy, for the encouragement.

 

You are ALL a fun group to play with!

Hello piano was one of my favorite. 

Thanks to febkabab for arranging the contest.

Truth is, mine was crap rushy writing. I am going to modify it. I will post it soon. Then I need professional opinion from you guys.
