#1
Setting out on a one night stand,
Ten grand in her pocket and a rock and roll man,
He said, "Climb on board I'll take you anywhere you wanna be."

With nothing to lose and only one way to go,
She felt her life changing gears as they hit the road,
For one time in her life she was gonna be free.

But it's hard to play with a broken string,
Your keys are locked in the car on top of everything.
Chasing sunsets is just a dream,
While you're playing a guitar with a broken string.

Heading west they saw the desert sands,
The Colorado Rockies while he held her hand.
The Ocean and The Valley and places that she’d never dreamed.

In the middle of nowhere she met herself on the road,
She knew she had some better place to go,
And suddenly life was just a little better than it seemed.

But it's hard to play with a broken string,
Your keys are locked in the car on top of everything.
Chasing sunsets is just a dream,
While you're playing a guitar with a broken string.

You know it's a big old country.
With too many places she’s never seen.
It's time she stopped all her fussing.
She’s gonna hit the road and find her dream.

But it's hard to play with a broken string,
Put the top down and let her be free.
Chasing sunsets is still her dream,
And she’s playing a guitar with a broken string.

You know it's a big old country.
With too many places she's never seen.
It's time she stopped all her fussing.
She's gonna hit the road and find her dream.

(A Capella to Claps.)
But it's hard to play with a broken string,
Put the top down and let her be free.
Chasing sunsets is still her dream,
And she's playing a guitar with a broken string.

(Resume Chorus)
It's hard to play with a broken string,
I'm heading down the road forever free.
Chasing sunsets and living a dream,
And I'm playing a guitar with a broken string.

Ok so I really liked this piece. I like the beginning more than the end, but I wasn't sure exactly what direction it was headed yet. I'd like to hear it if you ever record it. As I was reading I felt like there were a few rhythm hiccups but it may have just been the way I was reading it. When I have more time I'll try to give you a full critique. Good work!

Heading west they saw the desert sands,
The Colorado Rockies while he held her hand.
The Ocean and The Valley and places that she'd never dreamed.

In the middle of nowhere she met herself on the road,
She knew she had some better place to go,
And suddenly life was just a little better than it seemed.

But it's hard to play with a broken string,
You wanna open up the door and throw away the key.
Chasing sunsets is just a dream,
While you're playing a guitar with a broken string.

With too many places she's never seen.

I'm heading down the road forever free.
Chasing sunsets and living a dream,
And I'm playing a guitar with a broken string.
