Thanks folks. Lisa, it's very hard to be romantic without being Harlequin. I bring this up to plug my upcoming book. There are elements of pure romance in there and it's a real tightrope. You have to strike a balance between soulful and Bieber. That's dangerous business. ...

Hi Dave. Certainly has that '70's soul feel. I also have a feeling that "cancer" doesn't fit the mood of the song. Maybe it's a throwback from when nobody wanted to mentioned it, I'm not sure but somehow it just doesn't seem to fit imo. Maybe substitute something lik...

Hey Ironknee, didn't see your reply sooner. Thanks for listening. As far as lyrics, there is not alot you can do lyrically with this the way it's structured. You have to cram the lyric in with the short bursts of melody, all u can do is have a hook and some lines, nice title......

Brian, This is a nice start to a compelling lyric. My only suggestions are, one, to try to cut down on the syllables where you can (though, of course, that really depends on the melody you have in mind). For example, in the second line, I'm thinking "Life can pass you by&...
