Subject: RE: Songwriting -- Part 2
Beautiful and very evocative song. Great lines. "beneath the husk on bud and blossom": Love it!
kat, thanks for the thought. I too use that method regularly. But somehow I need to hear the melody and time outside myself in order to put it down. Or something like that. My keyboard skills are very limited, so they don't help. I thought of putting hash marks on paper and counting them off as I sing- that might work. Aah well, I'll figure something out, I guess.
This song I'm calling 'Ten Thousand Tomorrows'. The theme is of seeing in the obits the face of someone you loved 30 years ago. Charming, I know!
