OK, so I wrote this song on Monday. I was noodling around on the guitar and found a really cool cord, built a progression, then started singing to it. The first four lines came pretty easily then I started crying. I really wasn't feeling sad at all until the song started happening, so I have no idea where it's coming from. I can hear an arrangement in my head with piano, strings, and a dreamy harmony.
If life is just a shadow show
Then what is real, I do not know.
To the soul set free
May you fly so high
In the empty sky.
What can I do to break myself from you?
When love is the only binding that's true.
You solved the mystery
May your wings take you to
The fading blue.
How can I live without you here?
My heart is hollow and filled with fear.
I hold your memory
Now you're out of sight
On your silent flight.
