A Song by Me

I had posted this on Helium. It has to do with life being difficult, etc. It's okay, I guess. Verse Have you heard the latest? I'm losing track of time It's a crime to feel the way I do Keep your distance away from me Far from the life I once knew Taking the easy way out Fate dropped out of the blue A communications blackout I'm no stranger to heartache Breaking down my defenses Building a better wall of illusion It appeals to my senses Making a deal with the devil A poor choice of words My goodhearted soul has gone missing Trying to follow the vast herds Pre Chorus It's hard to be yourself in a time of need It doesn't take much to please me But, I'm getting better I'm getting better I'm getting better all the time Chorus I don't care if it takes all night You can't call time your own You think you're really something Find it hard to be yourself when you're alone The point of living has yet to be addressed How the hell did I get into this mess? But, I'm finding a reason A reason meant for me The point of living has yet to be addressed How did I get into this mess? I've looked for a reason just for me But, it doesn't matter much to me anymore Post Chorus You were right about me You were right all along I'm a fool for thinking otherwise You don't know anything about me I'm a rule in which you don't apply Then, basically it goes back to the chorus again before fading out. I've tried it on my guitar, it's okay. I need an acoustic, though. Plus, I can't sing, so I just hummed a melody.

Wow, you are an awesome song writer. This must have took you at least a couple of days to pen down. Have you ever tried to perform songs you write in front of anyone else? I think people might appreciate your songs....

Thank you. I try to write what's on my mind at the time. It did take me two days to write the lyrics. And another two to come up with some music for it. And no, I could never perform in front of people by myself. If I was in a band, maybe. Mostly, I just write for myself. Sometimes I need to answer my own questions, you know? It's therapeutic, I guess.

Cool....continue on with your hobby and I'm sure one day at least someone will come across your songs and really appreciate them (I'm the first to appreciate your songs already, so you already have an achievement!). By the way, do you have a band of your own? It's really cool to be in a band....

I tried the band thing. It wasn't for me. I guess I just like creating my own songs for myself. When I first started playing guitar I knew that I wasn't really interested in going pro.

I like it! I published a few songs on associated content, they get okay page views. i can't sing either but that didn't stop me from recording them and putting them on myspace, lol. http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/684299/a_little_while.html http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/658291/two_poems_for_a_rainy_day.html If you need a boost of confidence and want to hear my badly recorded music feel free to message me & i'll give you the link! You're probably not as bad as you think!

I really like 'A Little While'. Very well done. I just started on Associated Content. I'm still working my way around the site, getting to know it better. You have some really great articles on there.

By the way, when will your composition be made into music with melodies and all? Hope you can inform us if you had done it already. We will be glad to listen to it.

A very good song you have here about the reason for living. You must be a good poet to. I write poetry. I write songs too in my high school days mostly in our native language "Tagalog". But I have never tried to really put it in songs, like write chords for it. I don't really know how to write chords. I only know little of playing the guitar. I just like singing, but singing doesn't like me either. This thing you have is talent. Good Luck!
