Day Dreams

Day Dreams

A Poem by The Spaniard
"

Trapped at work on a windy day...thinking about needing a change.

"

v1: Outside the wind is blowing

The door is slamming shut.

In shelter I have taken

Sip my sorrow from a cup.

I can hear the gust destroying

All that lay within it's path

From the window I am watching

How long can this feeling last

 

Pre-chorus: Cause I've had enough of crying

And I've had enough of pain.

Inside my heart is dying

On my soul there is a stain

 

Chorus: But I'll spread my wings/jump to the breeze

Soar above the trees yeah.

And I'll close my eyes/drift into the skies

Daydreams I've derived.

 

V2: The sun outside is shining

Decieving from the look

In disguise the cold has hidden

I remain within this nook.

The voices so distracting

Always talking while I think.

In my chest my heart is pumping

I can feel it start to sink.

 

Pre-chorus: Cause I've had enough of crying.

And I've had enough of pain.

Inside my heart is dying.

And you are the one to blame

 

Chorus: But I'll spread my wings/jump into the breeze

Soar above the trees.

And I'll close my eyes/drift into the skies

Daydreams I've derived.

I'll scream and yell and pray/make this go away

Make this go away!

I'll look into the skies/wait until the time

Daydreams come alive!

 

soft chorus: I'll spead my wings/jump into the breeze

Soar above the trees yeah

I'll close my eyes/drift into the skies

Daydreams I've derived.

Author's Note

The Spaniard
The video suggests Im left handed. I am not, just an inverted image. Plus its rough cause I just wrote it and the kinks aren't worked out. excuse the bad guitar playing, im not that good. haha

Good stuff, man. I thought I the vid might be inverted. I had not see too many lefty guitars. Mostly lefties will flip string a righthanded guitar. Pick is on top then. :)
Once you get the kinks out and work up the arrangement, this will work the crowd live. I can see it play out.

Cheers!
Doc.

As a poem, this would work well. But, when I envision this being sung, I see a skinny 16 year old boy dressed in tight black clothing and eye-liner :[ lol

But I love how the chorus shifts to a more positive outlook.

Don't get me wrong, this is a damn good write, I'm just into the kind of music I imagine this song to be.

I really liked this. And to think it was still in the rough stages makes it even more impressive. Because it sound really good. I liked that you did this with the video it is very cool to put a voice to your words. I liked this a lot. The words were very fitting and flowed perfectly. I would love to hear this again after you polish it the way you want to.


Going into the favorites.

Great Job!!!!!

This is a good! I think the lyrics are perfect. I love the line "the sun outside is shining deceiving from the look." That is good. Great work!
