Sounds like you had an abusive relationship.

I like it though. Sometimes with songs with big and confusing words, the meaning can get lost in translation. This song was simple, although in a good way. the line "riding a bike, going to school" made me think of middle school or early high school. Back when everything was easy. It worked well
Something I wrote in about 10 minutes. Will C4C

It’s coming back to me
All that I couldn’t see
And it’s never felt this real before.
I thought it gone for good
But pleasantly found myself surprised
At the odds that I’ve done this again

I can’t believe
That I’ve failed to see
The wrong road that I’ve gone
I’ve travelled on airplane and bus
And boat and on car and on foot
And landed back home

Where have the months all gone
As I am sitting here
Wondering about all that I’ve missed.
And trying to make amends for all my
It’s not that easy of a task.

But when it’s done
I hope that I will feel
Like a whole new person
With new words to speak
And new friends to say
“Hey, man, let’s go out tonight”

And if nothing else
I will not be the same
I will keep writing
And playing my songs
This was something that I loved dearly
But somehow I lost it in the move.

While unpacking my boxes
I seem to have found my old
Six string acoustic guitar.
It was out of tune
And had a broken string
But I still played it just fine.

I sat down with a pen in my hand
And I wrote all the words in my head
This is what they said
I really like the chorus. "Sinning and lieing while fighting and crying" sounds like something you can just yell at the top of your lungs, almost like a chant lol. The two lines after that, "they're the actions that've made us who we are" feels a little weak though. I think if you shorten it a bit, it could go a long way. Overall, good song. Feels like a really high-energy song to me.
Lol thanks. I was worried it would be terrible. I know its repetitive, but I wasn't sure how to go at fixing it, or if it was even worth it.

It's basically about that feeling you get when everything in life is perfect. Where you have no worries, no stress, and needless to say, I was missing that feeling when I wrote this song
I wrote this song about a year ago, and I'm not quite sure what to think. The first (and only) song I kept. But I won't bore with details...

When was the last day
Where you could stop and say
That everythings okay?
When was the last day?

When was the first time
Where you felt truly fine
Without needing a dime
When was the first time?

What if, for just a moment
Along your journey
All your fears were absent
And everything could just freeze?

Well I can't remember
The first of my bitter
Do I need a savior?
I can't remember

Is there nothing you can do
That will help you to get through
Do you need to be rescued?
Is there nothing you can do?

What if, for just a moment
Along your journey
All your fears were absent
And everything could just freeze?
Those all sound like great suggestions. The penguin reference collection actually sounds like the best bet for me, but I may end up getting all of the suggested books. Lol, unfortunately my local chapters doesn't stock any of them >.< but oh well. I'm sure I can find them somewhere. Thanks for the suggestions, and if you think of anymore, I'll keep an open mind ^^
I am looking for some kind of book that will help me become a better writer in general... Something that describes metaphors and figures of speech in great detail, because I can't seem to get a grasp on them. I bought a few books on songwriting, but they weren't exactly what I was looking for. I need something that specifically caters to writing. Any help would be greatly appreciated =)

checked the searchbar, came up with nothing.

what would your last words be?


Stay classy, San Diego.

Im watching that movie right now
(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are
right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour.
Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more
minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something,
and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually
end in fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement
often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot
and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with
you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women
> >> can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard
> >> before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or Faint. Just
say you're welcome (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless

she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking
you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' ... that will bring on a

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement,
meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several
times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man
asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

* Send this to the men you know, to warn them about arguments they can
avoid if they remember the terminology.

* Send this to all the women you know to give them a good laugh, cause
> >> they know it's true.

I'm not a big poster in here, but I figured this might actually help some Pit Monkeys
ok thanks for everyones help, i think ive got one. i am tired of shopping around right now so this is what ive settled on for now... but i might look around again later seeing as i wont be buying for awhile yet... heres a linky and tell my if this guitar is ass? thanks
So I'm a pretty basic guy when it comes to the guitar, I'm the beginnerest of beginners, and I don't plan on taking any lessons to get better. But this thread isn't about that. I was wondering if I should get a certain type of guitar based on what genre I play? I know that with electric guitars different woods make different sounds, and it is probably the same with the acoustic guitar, but I don't know what type of guitar I should even be looking at. I like punk rock, and although there wouldn't be a lot of tunes on the acoustic for my taste, I would also just like to learn catchy songs on the radio. I don't need anyone to tell me exactly what guitar i should buy, but just someone to help point me in the right direction... maybe what brand makes a good guitar for my taste, or just what woods im looking for. nothing too expensive, maybe under $300 (Canadian btw)... and i know there is a thread for under $300... but i didnt think that was quite the right thread for me... seeing as im teh uber n00b(flame me if im wrong ).
The rangers are gonna take the presidents trophy for sure.. but hopefully the flames will do a little better than 8th with all the new players + new head coach
