Last nights Dream

Post by Duncan » Sat Jan 23, 2016 11:59 am

I had a dream last night I was singing this song and I don't know if it is a song I once heard or was I composing it myself. Anyway I spent a few hours this morning
trying to remember it and write it down, and this is what I came up with.

Oh her soul was black and evil
Something I couldn't understand
Why her lips were soft and tender
As she held on to my hand.

I could almost see her heartbeat
When I looked into her eyes
I could hear her mother calling
I could hear her mothers cries'.

Darling don't go into the city
Please don't go out late at night
There are men out there darling
Who will not treat you right.

And as we walked down the road of darkness
Where no-one else could be
And she lay her body next to mine
She gave her love so free

When the sun rose in the morning
All signs of her were gone
But for a single strand of jet black hair
Another dream gone wrong.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Yeah, I checked online too. Found nothing.

It's a Duncan original.

Go back to sleep and come up with a whole album. Then sell the lyrics. :thumb:
... give 'em a quick, short, sharp shock ...

Already have 8 or 10 originals I have written over the years , plus many more not completed or not up to recording standed. Why would anyone buy a lyric to a song when they can copy it once it has been put on a cd or published on the internet .

They don't actually buy the lyrics.
You copyright your works. Then when someone uses one of your songs, you get royalties.

I wrote a bit of poetry as a youth. Then I realised that life was shit anyway and I had no time for sh.. distinctive poetry. Do you look like Hugh Grant? Is your life like Four Weddings? Then stop.
