I like people sharing their creative stuff! It's always great to see what other people are doing. I'm an artist and graphic designer, but I imagine myself a songwriter at times. I just don't play an instrument, so that holds me back quite a bit. But I sing and have a ton of lyrics and melodies. Smile

Anyway, here's a little snippet of a song idea I had. I just banged a bit on the piano for some rythym. Maybe some day it'll grown into an actual song (the link will only be up for a few days, my account there is soon to be terminated since I'm no longer a student)...

Shiver Inside

I was never scared
of the morning
Never was scared
of the sun

Never worried
if you were true
Never worried
if you were the one

Now

I've got the shiver inside me
moving all through me and I can't shake it out
You've got nothing to prove
there's nothing to see
move along now
we'll work it out

Never was scared...

I think that is lovely...is beautiful and simplistic...but not simple meaning not good, but beautiful because of it's simplicity.

Thanks for your kind words! They mean a lot. Maybe someday I'll finish the song.

I hope you do and that you'll share it with us.

I think some of the best lyrics are ones like yours that are very simple but lovely...it's why I love Juliana Hatfield so much...many of her lyrics are very simple but they just work.

It's always a struggle. I like interesting lyrics with different meanings, but it can all become very forced. So I try to let whatever comes out, come out.

Someone who I might be collaborating with added a bit to Shiver Inside. You can hear the newer version at my myspace site:

http://www.myspace.com/jonwesmusic

There's also an older song I did a couple years ago in Electronic Music class. I actually played all the music, but its pretty rudimentary. It's called the Darkest Face:

Darkest Face

I spread, spread myself out
Spread myself out
Spread myself thin

You know,
what it's about, what it's about
It's always been

I hold it inside
In that place
I try to hide the darkest face

I reach, reach for the sun
the glorious sun
I fall down inside

Down inside

Into the whole
parts many parts
in my mind

I can't make one again
Spread thin Spread thin

I spread myself out I spread myself you know what its about hold it inside I try to hide try to hide the darkest face spread myself out I reach you know what its about its always been I hold it inside I try to hide...
