Here is a post of some lyrics I've written for a song. They came at a really emotional time so I hope they hit home with others as well. Commentary would be great. The part in parenthesis are just notes.


I'm a sick desperate man who meant something to you
I search for solutions can't the handle the truth
I know that you’re gone and I hate who I was
I hate who I was, I hate who I was
(acoustic/piano Intro)

The realization that you wont be right next to me
Hurts so much more, so much more they can’t see
The truth is I lied, the truth is I lied
I lost it all no matter how hard I tried
(Senses Fail like heavy riffs)

They tell me move on and to still keep my faith
I try to hold on but all I feel is disgrace
I hurt you the most and I cant seem to face
Myself in the mirror it hurts me to see
The man I’ve become, the man who I’ve been
(Senses Fail like heavy riffs)

Oh Father, Oh Father I still kept your sin
It runs in my veins and my blood is so thin
A family tradition, I can’t seem to win
I can’t seem to break I can’t do this again
(Muted Chord build up to chorus)

Oh Janie, Oh Janie I’m still so sorry
I never meant I never meant
To make you feel this way
I can apologize so many times
Is this still the end?
The monster in the mirror, I can’t seem to admit
(Intense power chord chorus with subtle lead)

The truth is I can change, and change who I was
What I wanted to be is never enough
Take actions not words, to prove to you
I mean what I say, when I say it true
(Senses Fail like heavy riffs)

I love you so much, you loved me the same
If there is love, then it will find a way
Call me cliché and call me a cheat
That’s what I am, self loathing man to be
(Senses Fail like heavy riffs)

Oh Father, Oh Father I still kept your sin
It runs in my veins and my blood is so thin
A family tradition, I can’t seem to win
I can’t seem to break I can’t do this again
(Muted Chord build up to chorus)

Oh Janie, Oh Janie I’m still so sorry
I never meant I never meant
To make you feel this way
I can apologize so many times
Is this still the end?
The monster in the mirror, I can’t seem to admit
(Intense power chord chorus with subtle lead)

I’m a cheater I’m a liar I have so much baggage
But to change who I am, I’d do it in a second
I’ve already begun to change who I am
I’m changing away, away from the sin
(Soft Break)

I’m a cheater I’m a liar I have so much baggage
I’m changing who I was, just give me second
Chance to hold on, a chance to repent
To show you I mean it, to be with you again
(Soft Break leading into a solo)

I wish you weren’t so strong
To tell me off so many times
I deserve what I got, I deserve to writhe
In misery and pain, to see what I lost
I destroyed this myself, out of sin, out of lust
(Climax outro chorus)

But hear me out, it was false lust at most
Hazy I was, and hazy we spoke
Out of my mind and out of control
It lowered my inhibitions and I lost all hope
(Climax outro chorus)

The drink did this to me, and so shall I suffer
I still did the actions; I still took a false lover
It wasn’t me, it wasn’t me
Please don’t you see, that it wasn’t the true me
(Climax outro chorus)
