song writing contest

I'm gonna do a real blog soon, but in the mean time, I need your thoughts.

I'm entering a song writing contest. I never do, and I don't expect anything, but one of my goals is to get my writing "out there". I've picked a few things that I like the best. The contest is for country music, so that led to my decision. I'm copying/pasting the lyrics here. Pick your favorite. Thanks.

"You And Your Guitar"
Written May 2009

They say nothing’s impossible
Well babe, I’m starting to think
That getting to you is the exception

For you I’m just another girl
Who fell in love with you and your guitar
I’ll never be the one you want so I’ll keep trying to quit you
How can I quit when you keep coming around again?
You with your guitar…

You know I’ll always be here
So you can get away with forgetting me for a while
I really shouldn’t care this much
But every time I see you and your guitar, my heart goes into overdrive
The distance between us is too much to take
You’re living the life you’ve always dreamed of, the life I’ll never be a part of
I can’t blame you, but I wish that I could make you see

I’m not just another girl
I’m the one with everything you need
You know part of this is on you
You spoke those words and made me fall in love
with you and your guitar

I want to believe you’re worth all of this,
That the dream of you and I is not too far off
I’m afraid I’ll never know that truth
Because for you I’m just another girl
Who fell in love with you and your guitar.


"silently suffering"
written feb 2010
I’ve been through enough heartbreak
To think that love is just a lie
But then you came along with your guitar
Somehow you tricked me into believing
you were different from the rest

It could have been the looks you gave me
Or the simple way you changed my life
Truth’s out and here’s a surprise…
it was never me
I was just the one you could

string along, string along
then just let me fall
You led me on and then let me sit here
silently suffering

I can’t get those words out of my head
The words that broke my heart
The ones that told me about her
When All along **whisper 6 months** I thought it was me
But I was just there for you to


Here I am, watching her hold you
We both know that should be me
But clearly my feelings have no say in the matter
Because she’s there with you,
I’m just the one that you were happy to

string along, string along
then just let me fall
You led me on and then let me sit here
silently suffering


forget anything I’ve said to you
about you giving me hope and life
you can’t be my heroic love if you’ve left me
silently suffering

"it could be me"
written october 2010
You flash that bright, sweet smile
Trick them to believe you’re doing fine
But we both know there’s more to you
Than what you’re willing to show the world
let somebody see what’s behind that wall
oh please let that somebody be me
This may seem like a desperate call for your attention
But I’ve been silent for much too long now
And I think it’s time you knew
I could be the one for you
Chorus: Oh I pinky promise I really do care
I’m not like the rest, how can I make you believe
Your secrets are safe with me
I want to know every word to your story
What breaks your heart, who was your first love
Tell me your dreams, what moves your heart
Whenever I see you I can’t help but wish
For more time to be with you, let you break down right infront of me
I smile to myself as you walk past
Hold back from following you and taking your hand
Stop myself from screaming that I love you
And I, I must confesss, I wonder about you all the time
I can sense the trouble in your bright green eyes
Together we will be just fine
Chorus: Oh I pinky promise I really do care
I’m not like the rest, how can I make you believe
Your secrets are safe with me
I want to know every word to your story
What breaks your heart, who was your first love
Tell me your dreams, what moves your heart
I can’t take you away from your own little world
Just believe that I’ll be here waiting
When you’re ready to let someone in
Oh please let that someone be me


"never alone"
dec 2010
As the tears crash down from your tired eyes
And fall like weights into your hands
Take a deep breath, look to the sky
Find peace knowing your fears
Won’t last forever
Someone is coming to save you
You are never alone

Your story is not over yet
Keep writing with the words inside your heart
Don’t let anyone take that away

You say you need a rescue
Look inside your self
Find that strength deep inside
Force fear to escape your mind

Say a prayer, sing outloud, write it all out
Whatever brings you peace
We’re waiting for you to shine
Because you are never alone

"wait, I think"
jan 2011
I think I like you
Starting to think I’d like to keep you around
Wait, that’s a lie, who am I kidding
Let’s not get too attached
We both know I have issues letting go
If you don’t mind I want to just have this moment
I know this sounds crazy, we’ve only just met
But there’s something about you
That’s got me hooked
You really get me
And I’d really like to get to you
You must be a miracle worker
Cuz With you I’m myself
That doesn’t happen very often
You won me over when we were driving
You knew my favorite song
And that I don’t like my music too loud
But wait, stop the music
Let’s not get too attached
We both know I have issues letting go
If you don’t mind I want to just have this moment
And we can go back to just friends
Wait, that’s a lie, who am I kidding
I think I like you
I know I’d like to keep you around.

"stuck"
june 2011
My friends are waiting
Not so patiently
For me to get over you
They don’t know me very well
Because I’m never going to
Give up all of this
It’s not that I haven’t tried
I make a wish that you’ll disappear
So I can stop chasing you
But as long as you stick around
Honey I’m stuck on you
Call me crazy and desperate
But I’ll take those over lonely
And dear when you’re around
The lonely goes away
My friends, they wonder what I see in you
It’s your sweet soul that
Has had me captured since that very first day
It’s the hope you gave me
To sum it all up, you’re perfect
So to my so call friends
I know this is hard for you
You call me crazy and desperate
But I’d take those over lonely
And dears, when he’s around,
The lonely goes away
So let me love him
As long as he’s around
I’m so stuck on him

late night sadness
july 2011

I should be sleeping but I’m too busy
Listening to sad songs
And wondering where you are tonight
And if you ever found yourself
Like you always said you needed to do
Love can be so close to hate
And can empty you out
Now we barely even speak
And I miss you more than you know
Keeping our lives so
Loosely braided together
It just isn’t enough for me
I’m wondering what if
I hadn’t left that night
I shouldn’t have been so careful
Should have just taken that risk
But I held back instead of holding you
And I see now it was love, at least for me
But love can be so close to hate
And can empty you out
Now we barely even speak
And I miss you more than you know
I shouldv’e told you how I felt
Should’ve kissed you on that mountain
Should’ve done anything to keep you close
And wherever you are tonight
I hope life’s been good to you
Goodnight, my long lost love.

I need need need everyone's input! thank you! xoxo
