Okay, this one I'm actually kinda proud of. My other songs, not so much... I wrote it in about a half hour or so, and it's probably not the best, but let me know what you think.

Wishful Thinking-

It was one of those times.
Heated words, and meaningless good-byes.
One of those times.

You say you think things through,
But not all the time.
What you say is not true,
No, not all the time.

We all wanna know,
If it's real
Or is it just wishful thinking?
We all wanna know,
Is it worth
All the pain that it deals?

You say, "We're wasting our time."
But why should we be?
If life teaches lessons,
Why should this be the exception?
"Still we're wasting our time."
And yet we're having the the time of our lives.
So for good times;
Say it like you mean it to me.

It was one of those times.
Where time flies when your having fun.
Gotta love those times.

You said, "I thought things through,"
"I had enough time."
But, what you say is not true,
No, not all the time.

And I just wanna know:
If it's real
Or if it's just wishful thinking.
I just wanna know,
If it's worth
All the pain that I feel.

You say, "We're wasting our time."
But why should we be?
If life teaches lessons,
Why should this be the exception?
"Still we're wasting our time."
And yet we're having the the time of our lives.
So for good times;
Say it like you mean it to me.

The time is finally here.
I felt it coming near,
When you "thought things through."
Now that the time is here,
I feel, it's my turn to
Think things through.

As time went by,
I felt the tesion rise,
I felt the strings untie,
I felt the world coming down around me.
And I hope as
Time goes by
We'll remember the times of our lives.

And I just wanna know:
Was it real
Or was it just wishful thinking?
And I think I know;
It was worth it.
And scars, they all heal.

You said, "We're wasting our time."
But why should we be?
If life teaches lessons,
Why should this be the exception?
"Still we're wasting our time."
And we had the the time of our lives.
And for good times;
Im glad you said it like you meant it to me.

We both know now.
We were wasting our time
On wishful thinking.


Helpul criticizm please, but be honest .

Wow...I was listening to Red House by Hendrix while I read that and for some reason it really fit. I like it!

I love the idea here! It takes a fairly cliche concept (although, since every huamn emotion has already been explored, I think cliche should be on an individual basis and not a widespread plane like it is) and it makes it fresh. It really says something of your ability as a writer that you can do this. Please put this to music and lay it for people sometime, because it deserves to be heard, dude.
Classifieds mod said this didn't count as trying to sell anything, I'll say it here:

If you're looking to be able to take credit cards in-person (not over the internet where paypal will work), pm me and I can hook you up with the stuff you need.

Hey, wow... Thanks!

I've tried getting this down to music several times, but I have a nagging problem where I seem to write songs in a key that is conveniently outside of my vocal range, lol.

Thank you again!
