Hi everybody !

Who is good in writing a great lyric for my song
“Skyfall” ? Other Title also possible

Here’s the music :
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1fqdqSzSKyQmKVqS3b9oe2BM900UOztgT

Please consider to maintain the exact !! rhythm of my vocal melody in your lyric.

Verse line 1 : 16 syllables
Verse line 2 : 16 syllables
Rise line 1 : 6 syllables
Chorus line 1 : 8
Chorus line 2: 10
Chorus line 3 : 8
Chorus line 4: 10
Chorus last line : 7

It needs words that end in each line with “a”,“o”,“u”,“e” , because
I hold the notes.

I have sung some senseless words you might pickup and use them if you like...

Please just orientate only on the first verse and first chorus, because it might be so that I sung the following verses and chorus a little bit different which is not done by my intention.
When I will record the song I will defintlay hold on the structure of Verse 1 and Chorus 1.

The most important thing for me is that the lyric fits like a perfect glove on the melody and is easy ! to sing.

So, post your lyric proposals here for Verse 1 and the Chorus, and if I can sing it well I get in touch with you so you can complete it.

I will close the thread in 2 weeks, and if there is a lyric proposal that suits, I let you know.
Thanks for your proposals in advance.

Cheers, Steve Sledge

You belong to the wind, flying free
The road will never take you home
I held you tight but couldn’t see
The dream wouldn’t last that long
Some dreams can’t come true

You own the sky, I wonder why
You ever took the time to make me feel this way
I can’t forget, you can’t regret
The clouds remind me of when you would say
Even dreams are free…

I've actually been thinking about how to work "skyfall" into it..... All I'm coming up with is, "I sometimes wish the sky would fall".... but that’s kinda' weird to me. Perhaps some others can come up with something smile

„Falling sky“ is also possible I thought , but needs to be in the lyric somewhere

I've seen the earth rise the stars cry
the sky fall in a ball of flame.
I've seen men fall as if beggars.
while god turns round and looks away.

Thanks for your proposals !
Also everybody here on the forum is of course welcome to send me his verse 1 + chorus 1 directly per PM instead of posting it here.
I will collect them all and after the time is finished I will look and see which lyric is best to sing for the music and get in touch with the writer to let it finished by him.

I didnt see this until now. I got close to an idea. felt like an inspirational type of piece to me.

I think i fit the pegs in the square, but the structure kind of lost me at the end. So I didnt finish it. This was tough to do because the melody was very precise and short. Sounds like it will be a good tune.

This came out of me basicly at same time of listening to the track, its closed now, but I had fun givin it a shot.

If The Sky Falls

The heavy of the evening surrounds your bed
and you cant sleep to stay awake
the folks that you've known are so far ahead
you're thinkin bout the big mistake

but I'll lay my chips with you....

This chance tonight is in your sight
and if the sky falls you could learn to fly
above the clouds above the night
and if the sky's falls you'll be livin high

The candle burns on both ends this life is quick
you're movin but you're still here
all we get is a moment to make it stick
or we let it disappear

but nothin has nothin to lose....

This chance tonight is in your sight
and if the sky falls you could learn to fly
above the clouds above the night
and if the sky's falls you'll be livin high

Bridge:
You'll do it one better
slip away from the pack
One yes can make up for a world of no's
and I believe the world is gonna have your back
