Hey, I'm going to be doing an open mic night at the end of the month, id like to use an original song. all i currently have written is:

ill slip off these chains
and my mind starts to stray
the times that we had
they wont waste away
i cared for you
and that's why i say
i cant stay.

any suggestions on what to write for the verses, any tips on songwriting, any of that would be appreciated!

lets pick up these pieces
and make a new start
these words that i speak
they bleed from the heart
don't mind if i choke
as i start to say
i cant stay
