These are the first lyrics I've written in a while, so I hope I've still retained any "touch" I may of had in the past.

The lyrics are for are a well-paced, groovy balls-out-on-the-table rock kinda song.

It hasn't rained for days (title may change):


Do you feel,
Like a stone?
Rolling along but your gathering moss
Are you cold?
Alone?
Ever stopped to think that it might be your fault?
How do you expect me to hold,
on a dry broken frayed piece of rope
to something you don't even own
cos' you know yeah you know yeah you know


Hands tight knuckles white, frozen
to the base of the mic,
Crowd stone cold juxtaposed
by the stare of the lights,
Their wide dead eyes screaming crows that it's not quite right,
Bed bound, head down, paralysed by the stage fright.

On your marks.
Get set...


Go.

I didn't mean to dry your mouth,
but it's all your fault that this got out.
Open gate released the scandal,
It's just too much for you to handle.


Don't you dare,
Look away...
It's not as if you had nothing to say
before,
You were sure,
That none of this could ever be your fault.
And did you think I'd ignore,
The signs you left when you tore
Your way though the paper screens?
Now you know, yes you know, yes you know, yes you know

The air is thick with a sugary glaze,
Strange that, it hasn't rained for days
and you wonder how
to wrangle your way out of this one now
you know what hangs upon your shoulders,
just a broken string of golden
lies, that seem have caught the eyes,
of the man who controls the lights.

Me.

I didn't mean to dry your mouth,
but it's all your fault that this got out.
Open gate released the scandal,
It's just too much for you to handle.


Do you feel,
Like a stone?
Rolling along but your gathering moss
Are you cold?
Alone?
Ever stopped to think that it might be your fault?

It's just too much for you to handle.
It's just too much for you to handle.
It's just too much for you to handle.
It's just too much for you to handle.

GONE.


Can I upload a GP5 file of the music so these lyrics can be put into context or no?

Cheers in advance guys, will C4C

The line that really caught me was "the air is thick with a sugary glaze". The rest of the song, I was like "good word choice, nice metaphors, but somehow..........generic". And then that came up. It hooked me into the rest of the lyrics. Great job!
