Songwriting Week Three

Songwriting Week Three assignment


Writing songs can be a chore
when all your love is lost, forsaken;
the rhyming spirit comes, then goes,
then from your daydreams you awaken.

You spend your time in vain
trying to write some verse of substance:
these songs won’t soothe your pain.

The rhythm flows, a new creation
distilled from timelessness and void
presents itself and seeks relation
to a world that’s paranoid.

You spend your time in vain
trying to write some verse of substance:
these songs won’t soothe your pain.

And so, you see, it is so useless,
and all your time is spent in vain
trying to write some verse of substance:
these words you write won’t soothe your pain.
