Today I thought I would expose one of my favorite pieces of writing that I have been slowly working on for about a year. It was first intended to be a song, yet my musical talent is wanting. I guess the only reason I continued writing it was in the hope of one day becoming an overnight vocalist. Alas, this did not happen. So, this brings me to what I really wanted to say…
I have a challenge for all you kind humans of the blogosphere or whatever means were used to view this blog. More particularly the musically inclined sector. I would like YOU to take the lyrics below and make them into something. It doesn’t matter what sort of music you put behind it (although I always imagined Frank Sinatra bellowing the tune in a smoky room) or how you sing it. I would absolutely love to see something made of this. If you want to rework the words to make it more “melodic” go for it.
For me, it doesn’t feel complete in its static form. I want to feel an eargasm from something I helped make. Even though the musical tune will be all you! So please, if these words mean something to you, and you have the ability to do something with them, then I give you full reign. The only thing I ask is credit for penning the lyrics.
I hope someone out there can make it happen. 🙂
Her Forbidden Kiss I can’t resist.
The benefits outweigh the risks.
I’d drive for days and walk through nights;
Just for a lift, from her lips, to new heights.
Here we sit, on this lazy Summer ‘noon
In the meadow, watchin’ the flowers bloom
And my lips, they croon, a lofty tune
In July, my oh my, this here July.
Soon my serenade entangles in the breeze
It carries through languid branches,
hung from sycamore trees
Spreading hope to those still blinded by lust
Lost in translation or failure to trust
Oh, the sights these forests reap.
Surely’d turn you red in the cheek
For lover’s embrace’s no stranger to,
Mother nature’s reach
Oh how she melts when our eager lips meet
Knowing mere mortals can shine brighter
Than the sun she concedes.
In the green fields we lay frozen, a moment for eternity
Locked in a gaze, my inhibitions she razed.
But my soul shattered…
For soon reality steals the grin from a saint
Her words become stone as “goodbye” escapes rouge lips
I refuse with melancholy eyes. My cries,
fell irrelevant. Here in July.
She must be on her way. Her train due back in May.
So why do I die inside? How did I lose my pride,
On that fateful day? When love was in the air.
Dancing merrily to the song my heart did bare.
