Trying to get back into song writing. I think I've finished the lyrics of one of my songs. It's not the same as poetry because it's harder to get a feel for the rhythm etc.. but for what it's worth:

Break the Spell

Intro
Hello,
Can you hear me now?
I've fallen down the well
Of disappointment.

Hey,
Can you see me here?
I'm lost inside the fog
Of my own apathy.

Aux 1
If only you could break the spell,
If only you could make me swell
With passion.

Verse 1
Drifting through a dream that never ends,
I walk alone,
Awake in slumber,
Protected by the walls that I defend,
Safe and numb,
A silent pistol.

Aux 2
If only you could read my mind,
If only you could hope to find
My trigger.

Chorus
Feel me now,
I'll fire the skies
'Til all the blood rains down,
To be lost inside your seas.

Hear me now,
I'll scream the words
I thought I'd never hear,
Until my voice is hoarse,
My eyes are tears.

If only you could break the spell.

Verse 2
I track each day like scratches on a wall,
Alone and cold,
In my cell I linger,
Waiting for the anti-christ to call,
To steal my soul,
And drag me under.

Aux 3
If only you could set me free,
If only you could find the key,
And free me.

Chorus
Feel me now,
I'll fire the skies
'Til all the blood rains down,
To be lost inside your seas.

Hear me now,
I'll scream the words
I thought I'd never hear,
Until my voice is hoarse,
My eyes are tears.

If only you could break the spell.

Regards
Caleb
