Subject: RE: Songwriting 101
A workshop sort of thing would be nice. Someone (???) could say "write a song on this topic." People would write songs, then the workshop 'someone' and the rest of us would discuss and critique the songs. I doubt it would work since there's some degree of organization involved.

I think a Songwriter's Workshop on Mudcat would be great.

Anyone up for finishing a song I haven't gotten very far on? At this point, it needs not only some rhyming words/thoughts but some serious paring. Any ideas? Have at it, and thanks.

And yes. I do realize this could be seen as a navel-gazing song!

"Ten Thousand Tomorrows

Long ago, you were all the world to me
From here to horizon, far as I (eye?) could see
But time- it moved on, leaving you behind
Ten thousand tomorrows out of my mind

Once I really loved you
dah, dah, dah, dah, dah
Once I really loved you
Why have I forgot.

Forgotten the way you sat in a chair
Forgotten your smile and the scent of your hair
Don't even recall the touch of your hand
Forgotten it all, it's not what I planned.

Once I really loved you
dah, dah, dah, etc

In this morning's paper, there is your face
Next to some strangers, each one in its place
"He died yesterday" it dah, dah, dah, dah
Once I really loved you. Why have I forgot."
