Lyric of the Week: WRITE THE SONG

What is happening?

Why can’t I get it out of me?

There’s so much locked inside me

And I can’t find a key

There’s just one more song

One more till I can be free

One more to let fly

So I can let it all be


So write the damn song

Be done with the past

Stand up and be strong

You’ll get free at last.


It’s been a long time now

It’s been time to move along

I need to lay it all on the line now

Time to play that one last song

The pain has subsided

I’ve got a clear conscience and mind

It’s time to gather my strength

To cut the last tie that binds


So write …


So what keeps me from doing it?

Perhaps some vestige of love?

Or is it success and progress

That I’m in fear of

But I have to do it

No matter the consequence

It’s the only way to go

That makes any sense


So write …

Songwriting on piano
The magic happens here.

This song-about-writing-a-song goes back to the early 2010s, when I was caught up in writing a whole slew of songs about my recent divorce and feeling like I couldn't get out of it. It seemed like all I needed to do was to write that one last song and then I'd be able to let go of all the baggage ... but that one last song wasn't coming. No music yet.
