This is the first song I ever wrote...

(v1)
I've been waiting a long long time for skies to clear
and I've been thinking it's time to change my ways.
If you look into my eyes
You'll see a soft demise
What do you want to be?
Don't ask, it's a mystery.

(v2)
I've been waiting a long long time for scars to heal
and I've been thinking it's time to change my mind.
Don't fool, it's plain to see
What the hell do you want from me?
One question I have to ask
What's hidden behind that mask?

(chorus)
So here I come
If you see me for the first time
you wouldn't be half wrong.
I've come undone, you're falling apart
I ran this race backwards and I'm at the start.

(v3)
I've been waiting a long long time to see your face
and I've been thinking it's time to say goodbye.
I'm going to sleep before things become clear
don't wake me I'll talk sense in your ear.
I'll tell you what you don't want to see
I'll tell you what you want to be...

(v4)
I've been waiting a long long time for skies to clear
and I've been thinking its time to stay the same.
If you look into my eyes
You'll see to your surprise
I'll be crying but not from grief
I'll be crying from sweet relief.

(chorus... etc)

I know, I need to get rid of a verse or something...
It's not perfect but I thought I'd put it up anyway.
#6
Heh I see the same problem I always seem to have, a simple rhyme scheme... It's easy to see you put a lot of emotion into it though.

The lines "I'll be crying but not from grief, I'll be crying from sweet relief." play off each other well and the repetition of the first three words in these lines helps to get your point across.

Definite thumbs up for your first song xxxx
