Musical Truths, Day Thirty~If There Is No Me



30.  Compose your own song.  Describe the type of beat…or what song it would be similar too.  What would be the lyrics (of if its’ going to be an instrumental explain why).  Also share what, if anything, you learned about this challenge.


Well, it's the end of the road.  A few days later than I anticipated...for that, deepest apologies.

I wasn't sure where my emotions would be by the time I got to my day Thirty.  Would I be in a happy place? Peaceful place?  Confused place?

When I write, my writings have to be truthful.  I can't conjure lovely dovey when I'm not at that place.  You know you will get the realest representation of where I'm at during that particular period.

And I haven't been in a pretty place in a couple of weeks....a wacky combination of wanting to reach out and needing solitude, since you can't reach out to everybody.  Have to be careful who you choose; it marks the difference between being on the road to feeling better and ending up ten times worse.

As far as my song....well, the beat would be intense, but not intense in a hip hop way...more like violins and piano playing.....classical like...that is what I envision.  I did put words to it.

What I did learn about this challenge is how universal music can be.  You can put multiple songs to a particular situation, and that all these musical truths make me look like I'm a hot mess that needs my own reality show....lol

But what can I say; I'm me.

Maybe one's future would be brighter if there is no me.

But here's my little composition.  Thanks to those who participated and took the ride with me.

One.

If There Is No Me

Part One:

How do I let you know
That as time slowly flows
Even though there’s Love in both our hearts
We will start to drift apart

And it’s nothing you’ve done
No this wasn’t just for fun
Just a glimpse of the future
And I can clearly see
That you can be the best you
If there is no me

Chorus:
I know you will say
I’m the best that you ever had
And I supposed that type of thing
Should make me stick out my chest
Boast or be glad

But when I see what you could be
This heaven is really your misery
I think in time, you will come to see
I did you a favor by setting you free

Part Two:
How could I express myself
When I knew you truly felt
That I am the completion of your life
That I’d be the perfect wife

And it’s nothing that you spoke
That caused everything to be on yoke
Just a glimpse of the future
And I can clearly see
That you can be the best you
If there is no me

Chorus:
I know you will say
I’m the best that you ever had
And I supposed that type of talk
Should make me stick out my chest
Sashay when I walk

But I see what you could be
This heaven is really your misery
I think in time, you will come to see
I did you a favor by setting you free

Bridge:
Please don’t call
Because I’ll just hit ignore
Don’t post on my wall
Or bang on my door

I know you won’t believe it
But indeed it’s true
I’m doing all this out of love
For the best possible you.

Part Three:
And it’s nothing wrong that you spit
I felt the same way with your spirit
Just a glimpse of the future
And I can clearly see
That you can be the best you
If there is no me

I know you will say
I’m the best that you ever had
And I supposed that type of thing
Should make me stick out my chest
Boast or be glad

Chorus
But when I see what you could be
This heaven is really your misery
I think in time, you will come to see
I did you a favor by setting you free
