Raging Storms
V
The years went by
and still we tried
turning over many pages.
The same sun hung in the sky
even when hope had faded
V
A bitter wind blows
'cross the path we chose
over broken glass and stone.
By your bed a withered rose
As at night we slept alone
C
From sweet dreams
to a bed of thorns
From calm waters
To a raging storm

V
Pieces of you
things we used to do
my they're a handsome pair
So It was said a time or two
could have danced with you on air
B
I studied you that last time
I could see, nothing there
And those naked walls
around that room
Where imagination wasn't spared



Music

C

Couple of suggs Travis
and I don't quite get the blooded rose line
but I can see some nice lines in there

Like the sun still lights the sky

In your hair a wilted rose
for the nights we slept alone

It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

This lyric has a good feel to it, and I like Vic's suggestions. One thing that struck me, not necessarily as a problem, was that the general feel is regret, a kind of bitter wistfulness. The raging storm idea contrasts strongly with that and stands out from the rest in a way that could either be jarring or not. It would be an interesting dilemma when it comes to putting it to music - do you go with the wistful mood or the raging storm? Or both? That might be tricky because the two moods are interwoven in the chorus.

I am probably overthinking this LOL.

Hi Travis,
Yes, some dichotomy. you could take this either way in a bridge, hopeful or accepting the sadness.I do like most of Vicarn's suggestions. I am a sap for reclaimed love so I would go with hopeful but sad works too. A chorus out would be nice too.


Have a goodun,

Feel like the raging storm metaphor doesn't work as well as it could when used in two different contexts.
The lines go A to B, A to B, A to B then because B. So the first time you use the phrase its a destination, the second its a cause.

From sweet dreams - to - a bed of thorns
Meandering stream - to - a raging storm
Love was born - then - was torn apart
by raging storms

You could rectify this just by adding a predicate to the last line of the chorus, i.e.
From the calm to the raging storm
