Songwriting Corner

In this thread, I will post song lyrics as I compose them. My songs are from the country music genre...and the deal with heartache and love....and sometimes, just plain fun.


All comments and criticisms are welcome

WHAT IS WHISKEY GOOD FOR?

Oh, she left me
And didn't say goodbye
She broke my heart
And all I do is cry
Lord, I don't know
What I did so wrong
To make her leave
And leave me here alone

Mr. Bartender, yeah, I'll have another round
I must look like a fool
Shootin' all this whiskey down
But I don't care
My world just fell apart
And I always heard
Whiskey helps a broken heart

Oh, wh did I come here
Her memory followed me through that door
And parked itself by me
To make me cry even more

With every shot
I think about what went wrong
And this music kills me
Mr. DJ, please play another song.

chorus:

What is the whiskey good for?
Her memory is still around
I can't shake it
You sure are lettin' me down
With every drink
All I see is her sweet face
Oh, I guess that's somethin'
Time will have to erase
But, If whiskey can't kill it
I'll ask once more,
What is whiskey good for?

Well, I'm leavin' now
Her memory is still so strong
Damn it whiskey, why'd ya let me down?
Well, tonight I learned
That whiskey can't hide the pain
Or dry these tears
That fall like pouring rain
So, I ask myself
What is whiskey good for?

chorus:

What is whiskey good for?
Her memory is still around
I can't shake it
You sure are lettin' me down
With every drink
All I see is her sweet face
Oh, i guess that's somethin'
Time will have to erase
But, if whiskey can't kill it
I'll ask once more
What is whiskey good for?

Somebody please tell me
What is whiskey good for?

The song above, what is whiskey good for, was written after my fiance left me....for some unexplainable reason. she left with no goodbye.

the following song is something that i composed based on things that I told her during our relationship. she said she wanted the same things and always dreamed of having them. I guess it was either a lie...or she wanted them with someone else. I guess I'll never know.

I'M COMIN' HOME TO YOU


Love is a funny thing
It can hurt and it can heal
Never did understand it
I only know what my heart feels
And the day I found love
Was the greatest day of my life
Next to the day you said, I do
And became my own wife

chorus:

Baby, I can't explain it
This feeling in my heart
It's filled with my love for you
I never wanna be apart
I can't wait til I'm in your arms again
It makes me feel brand new
I'm leavin' work early, you better get ready
I'm comin' home to you
Yeah, I'm comin' home to you

It'll be five years tomorrow
Since we took those sacred vows
Darlin', I'll never forget them
NO way, NO how
You mean too much to me
To ever go back on my word
I'm gonna love you til my dyin' day
You'll never know an ounce of hurt.

chorus:

Baby, I can't explain it
This feeling in my heart
It's filled with my love for you
I never wanna be apart
I can't wait til I'm in your arms again
It makes me feel brand new
I'm leavin' work early, You better get ready
I'm comin' home to you
Yeah, I'm comin' home to you

Baby, when we're old and gray
Sittin' on that front porch swing
I'm gonna take you by the hand
Cause you're my everything
And we're gonna rock the night away
Yeah, we're gonna look at the stars
With you wrapped in my arms
And rock the night away

chorus:

Baby, I can't explain it
This feeling in my heart
It's filled with my love for you
I never wanna be apart
I can't wait til I'm in your arms again
It makes me feel brand new
I'm leavin' work early, you better get ready
I'm comin' home to you
Yeah, I'm comin' home to you

Tag:

Yeah, I'll always come home....to you.

Song is a beautiful form to express poetry through. It places great emphasis on extreme emotions such as sadness or joy. As though the heart of the human were singing. If it is any consolation, people are at times spurred by an emotion with neither warning nor welcome. And is infamous at leaving with the great speed and mystery that it arrived. Why do such impulses drive such people? Where do they come from? Who knows, but they exist, and nothing in life goes accidentally.

I don't know. One thing I know for sure, without such emotions, songs and poetry could not exist. So, I thank God for them.


Every Now and Then

Just this morning
On the outskirts of town
I thought I saw her
So I turned my truck around
And followed her
To the old feed store
And what I saw
Wasn't what I was wishing for
So I drove away
With tear filled eyes
I screamed her name
And broke down and cried.
Heaven knows I miss her so

chorus:

Every now and then
I'll think about her
Just lookin' back
On the way things were
How she made me laugh
How she made me smile
How she touched my heart
And made life worth while
How she taught me not
To lose control
She'd take my hand
She was there to hold
Heaven knows I need her now
I miss the way we were
Every now and then

It was five years ago last Sunday
When I lost her
She fell asleep at the wheel
Drivin' home from work
When the sherriff told me the news
I went insane
Spent the next three years drinkin' whiskey
To hide the pain
I never pictured a single day
Without her tender love
But, I know she's happy now
In the Heaven above
Heaven knows I miss her so

chorus:

Every now and then
I'll think about her
Just lookin' back
On the way things were
How she made me laugh
How she made me smile
How she touched my heart
And made life worthwhile
How she taught me not
To lose control
She'd take my hand
She was there to hold
Heaven knows I need her now
I miss the way we were
Every now and then

It took time
But I learned to live without her
To cherish our love
And the things that really matter
But, every now and then
I'll see her face
Thinkin' she's come home
My ol heart will race
I'll reach out
To pull her close
Then she disappears
Just like a ghost
Heaven knows I miss her so

chorus:

Every now and then
I'll think about her
Just lookin' back
On the way things were
How she made me laugh
How she made me smile
How she touched my heart
And made life worthwhile
How she taught me not
To lose control
She'd take my hand
She was there to hold
Heaven knows I need her now
I miss the way we were
Every now and then

THE PICTURE


I could paint a picture
With you by my side
Hang it on the wall
And remember the time
When you still loved me
Til death do us part
Back when you were an angel
And I never knew a broken heart

I'd paint that picture
With you in the dress that you wore
When I first met you
The one that I adore
And you'd be smilin'
As you lay in my arms
I'd gently touch your face
And protect you from all harm

chorus:

This is the picture
I see every day
Even though it's not on my wall
It's in my memory to stay
Lord, I don't know
How true love can walk away
And leave me here dyin'
Day after day

In my picture
I'll give you flowers to hold
The one's growin' wild
On the side of the road
You'll look so lovely
With the flowers in your hair
Like an angel
Sent to answer my prayer

In my picture
You'll never leave
I'll never know heartache
I'll never grieve
For the loss of my angel
I'll never again see
But you'll be in my arms
Back when our love was innocent and free

chorus:

This is the picture
I see every day
Even though it's not on my wall
It's in my memory to stay
Lord, I don't know
How true love can walk away
And leave me here dyin'
Day after day

DON'T BE AFRAID

I can tell you're afraid to love again.
He hurt you in so many ways.
You're tired of the pain; you're tired of the game.
You cash in your chips and you run away
To a place deep inside yourself
Where no one else can go
Where love can't find you
And trust can never grow
But baby,
Before you run a way
There is one thing
That I want to say

chorus:

Don't be afraid
To open your heart's door
Let me in
I'll love you forevermore
I swear I'll never leave
I'll be all that you'll ever need
So tonight,
Just open that door
And let love's light shine on me
I'll show you how true my love can be
I wanna be the love you're lookin' for
So, don't be afraid
To open your heart's door.

Its been forever since I've seen you smile
Those old memories are still burnin' strong
Your eyes turn red and those tears begin to fall
You pack up your heart and then you're long gone
But baby, tonight, let's let all of that go
Let me wrap you in my arms
Let me dry those tears
And show you how special you are
I just wanna see you smile
Even for just a little while
Just look into my eyes cause I wanna say,

chorus:

Don't be afraid
To open your heart's door
Let me in
I'll love you forevermore
I swear I'll never leave
I'll be all that you'll ever need
So tonight,
Just open that door
And let love's light shine on me
I'll show you how true my love can be
I wanna be the love you're lookin' for
So don't be afraid
To open your heart's door.

PICTURES ON THE WALL

Sittin' here surrounded
By the pictures on the wall
They tell a story
Of a man who had it all
A wife who loved him
You can see it in her eyes
A son who adored him
His dad he idolized
And sittin' on the mantle
Is his whole world
With blonde pigtails
She's daddy's little girl

The note on the table
That told him goodbye
It said that she loved him
And the kids were alright
But, I can't be
Married to a man
With a cocaine habit
That's way out of hand
I'm stayin' with my mama
Out in L.A.
Don't bother callin'
I've said all I can say
You've had your chances
To clean up your life
But you chose your addiction
Over your family last night

Chorus:

What's a man to do
When he can't change his past
Cause all the drugs he used
Cost him all he has
He's livin' in hell
With the choices he made
Cause the family he loves most of all
Can only be seen
As pictures on the wall

He sits here surrounded
With temptation on his mind
So he pulls out a bag
And sets the coke in a line
He's been here before
He knows damn well
The high he'll receive
Won't take away this hell
He reaches over
Takes a pistol from the drawer
Before he pulls the trigger
He looks at the family picture once more

Chorus:

What's a man to do
When he can't change his past
Cause all the drugs he used
Cost him all he has
He's livin' in hell
With the choices he made
Cause the family he loves most of all
Can only be seen
As pictures on the wall

Tag:

He's livin' in hell
He's livin' it every day
With the choices he made
