I wrote this song a couple days ago, when i was pretty much lost in thought about how the past was such great times and how sometimes you just wish you could relive those moments with passed family members, pets, friends, just enjoying something when things seemed simpler, knowing that you cant and how one day you'll think the same about these days. I also used a simple rhyme scheme.
I also wrote some about how things never change and you wish it would, which constrasts with the reliving changed and past times.


VERSE
Inside this city lies an empty road
Draws you inside this tunnel of decaying rose
Smells of sincerity develop and close
Time fly by when you dont know where to go

Traveling back in time's harder than it seems
Sitting and wondering all your reluctant dreams
Remembering simpler times is always a breeze
Its only turning to and back from a time of ease

Staring out the window under clouds that hid
All of those wonderful insustaining bids
We hoped and thought that we would live as long we wished
And now we know thats not how the story goes

CHORUS
And what happened to all the songs we used to sing
now they dont even mean a thing
Knowing that i'm lost in this age
Just wondering whats on my page


VERSE 2
Nothing ever happens here its always the same
Only the people, they always seem to change
The girl you knew 10 years ago is the same girl today
Your best friend is different in every way

Driving down this highway of lingering pasts
Makes me think of how it was at last
Smothered in these random attacks of the past
Makes me wanna kick down this wall that just wont last

Kicking this can of bottled up fears
Maybe one will be released and brought unto his peers
Traveling along the way thats never changed
Maybe he will realize hes the one thats changed

Yes

but it was odd, we didn't have anything overly important stolen

and among the stolen items: Bananas

Sort of. I've made it into an acoustic song, going from C to Am, to Fmaj7, and back to C in 4/4 time, if that gives you any idea how it flows.

its koo

i could relate to them almost exactly but instead of making it "10 years ago" I would say "many years ago" but besides that one little part i think the rest is pretty much good to go
uh...ya

I would, but it doesn't quite flow as well as with "Many years ago" as it does with "10 years ago"
