I actually started writing this for the "space" collab and didn't end up finishing the song until recently. :( Anyway I hope someone can make something happen out of it! 


Lyrics:


You can hide pain in anything
Even someone else’s life
the more pain stings the more hurt it brings
staining your pillow at night


We watch them grow old
hot tears to season our sorrows
we watch them move mountains
canyons on our backs and valleys in our souls


But it’s the space
I can’t handle
I can’t handle, I can’t handle
it’s the space
I can’t handle


I can see your rage in everything
even deep inside your eyes
the longer hate stays the better it breeds
breaking down your pride


We watch it grow old
many tears to season our many sorrows
we won’t move mountains
with canyons on our backs and valleys in our souls


And it’s the space
I can’t handle
I can’t handle, I can’t handle
it’s the space
I can’t handle


And it’s the space
I can’t handle
I can’t handle, I can’t handle
it’s the space
I can’t handle

I tend to play piano riffs over and over again that end up going nowhere so I thought I would put them here for the patterns and cold open collab.


I play the progression the way I normally play it, then I play each chord individually.


Chord I: F#C#A#E#


Chord II:DAF#C#


Chord III:C#EG#B


Chord IV:AEG#B


Chord V:ADF#C#


Chord VI: GDAE


Chord VII:DAF#C#


Chord VIII:D#A#Dnatural Anatural


Chord IX: DBEA


Chord X: CBDA


Chord XI: DFACEG


Chord XII-XIV=Chords:VIII-X


Chord XVI-EGBDF#A


If you're into theory:


Progression: F#6-DM7(D major chord with a major 7th)-C#m7(C-sharp minor chord with a minor 7)-AM9(A Major 9 with no 3rd/or an E7 sus4 inverted?)-DM7 in second inversion-A7sus4-DM7 in root position


The other chords are tone clusters,suspensions,and some thirteenths? I just sort of play what I want.

This color…these vivid green blades of grass causing prickly numbness against my skin, a sensation familiar to me through endless summers basking in the backyard with my mother when I was eleven.  I even remember the blue shutters from our house, feeling the sting of the sun’s heat on my chest, and hearing the wind chimes on the porch as we lay all day, sinking deeper and deeper into the grass beneath our backs.   I should have listened to her more often; I still remember our last telephone conversation before it happened.  So I stand here now, bare feet in the grass, letting the wind propel me forward. It was hard not to stop and savor for a moment, so I took some time to take it all in again. Now I will swallow hard and just keep running, because I don’t want him to catch up. I've made it out of the darkness of the cellar and into the warmth of the sun again, from the concrete coolness to the tickle of green grass and I am never going back. I am free.

Falling used to give her this lightness in her stomach that made her uncomfortable


not quite like pain but a firmness that she was constantly at war with


like many things


eventually unlike the other obstacles in her life she learned to crave that


tightness or lightness or firm compression that falling lended to her body


so she began to fall a little harder every time she needed that feeling


it started with small trips,to the store, down the stairs, into his lap


eventually she began to fall backwards off balconies, crash through ceilings and tumble beneath concrete barriers


sinking beneath great oceans and enjoying the weighted pressure of drowning


falling wasn't all that she craved anymore


drowning seemed more apropo now and as such things go she set about the task of sinking to greater and greater depths


letting herself become overwhelmed was more than she could hope for, more than she could have imagined


I let her continue to fall because it was what I needed.


I needed to let some things drown,become buried,become invisible


and so it seems, did she.


The lightness,the firmness,the tightness.


Falling,tumbling,sinking,drowning.


She needed to fall.

Ok, so 1 am, recording songs in my bedroom...one take singing and playing, so forgive my mediocrity...and maybe someone could use it or remix it? This is my attempt at a pop(ish) ballad. 


 


Lyrics:


You said no one could love you
But I don't want anyone but you


What's good for us
ain't always safe for me
What could make you smile
could also make me
feel so weak


And all the pearls of heaven
are lost to us now
now we're stuck
in the rings of hell
which way is out


You said no one could love you 
But I don't want anyone but you
You said no one could want you
But I don't need anyone but you


What's safe for us
ain't always nice for me
What could bring me joy
can also make you
feel no peace


Who have we become
we are broken by our own pride
failure means everything now
to the dreams we've chased(ooh)


You said no one could love you 
But I don't love anyone but you
You said no one could need you
But I don't love anyone but you
You said no one could love you
But I don't love anyone but you

Obviously I have a problem with starting and stopping, another loop, there are some extra bits in the beginning, but then it just settles down to a loop.

Akin to "Backward" this was a song I was working on and abandoned so it follows a certain rhythmical structure...
