I'm a rock/metal guitarist/bassist and just started doing my own songwriting after I had to leave my old band to go college. This song uses "bleeding out" as a metaphor for how wounded and drained you can feel when someone you trust betrays you. The title "Three Minutes" is because thats how long it takes to die from blood loss if you have an artery wound. Also, my plan for the music is to have it start out angry, but by the end of the song 3 minutes later just express a quiet weakness as the emotion becomes too strong for the speaker to maintain it anymore and the anger gives way to grief. Hope you find it compelling!


Verse 1:

Shot through the heart, I see my ending.
A shot in the dark; should’ve seen it coming.
I can feel my life slipping away.
I can see that this is my last day.


Chorus 1:

I never thought that she would do this;
I always thought that we’d come through this.
Now, I’m betrayed,
Now I’m
Bleeding out!


Guitar Solo:


Verse 2:

Friends come to aid, they try to help me.
I can’t be saved, my fate prevents me.
I can feel my heart beating too fast.
I can see that these breaths are my last.


Bridge:


Chorus 2 (same as chorus 1):


Breakdown:


Final Chorus (softly, guitar is acoustic):

I never thought that she would do this;
I always thought that we’d come through this.
Now, I’m betrayed,
Now my
Light is out.

Oh lord, I want to go home.
But they won't let me go-o
Ho-oho-ohohahohohome. Hey!

Seems cool. I'd like to hear it with a full band.

I wish I could do it with a full band. Unfortunately, I've got no recording equipment, no one to play it with, and the only instrument I have access to until Christmas is a guitar with no strings.

3. the exact dates of composing and recording.
4. put the cd and papers in an envelope

Not too shabby. Try sprucing some things up with more descriptive words. When you write don't tell people how you're feeling, let them feel it with you. Don't be afraid to let the emotion ring out more when you write.
