Hello, strangers!

It's been another little bit since I've posted here...long story with many twists and turns, too long to list...but I was prompted to return by a kind compliment and query in my email. I have been MIA, but I have been writing like the world is going to end, which it probably is any minute now 😂 I have a large backlog of stuff to post so get ready! Here's the first.. I am working on a melody for this but it's not done yet. Sweet little love song 😉 I hope you enjoy! Glad to be back! ...Lori

Chorus
Taillights glowing in the mists of dawn
Lord have mercy my babys gone
Left a box of matches by the telephone
To burn away the days till he comes back home
Till he comes back home

Vs1
The first little box in a row of seven
The devil came down and stole my baby up to heaven
One match touched to the corner of the page
One day down in a burning rage

Vs2
Made the mark of an x on the second day
Then it darkened, and it curled, and it blew away
Third day started with a hiss and and a spark
And the rising of the smoke made the sun go dark

Chorus
Taillights glowing in the mists of dawn
Lord have mercy my babys gone
Left a box of matches by the telephone
To burn away the days till he comes back home
Till he comes back home

Vs3
The fourth and the fifth sorta burned into one
Like the whiskey in my gut and the bullet in the gun
The sixth left behind a smoldering trail
And the 7th came alive with crack and a wail

Bridge
If hes coming back well I don't know when
Flip the page over and start again

Chorus
Taillights glowing in the mists of dawn
Lord have mercy my babys gone
Left a box of matches by the telephone
To burn away the days till he comes back home
Till he comes back home

c2019, Lori Lorenz

Interesting lyric.
One you have to think about, which I like.
Now we have to wait to hear how it comes out.

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.

Some brilliant lines in this one--the makings of a really compelling tune. I'm being extra nitty I guess, but the phrase "the first little box" in verse one implies a second little box, but it focuses thereafter only on the seven matches of the first box. It's a small thing . . . not sure it matters, but mentioning it just for thought. Perhaps in the bridge, rather than "flip the page over" go for ""grab a second box"? All just thoughts that may mean nothing. It's a great lyric as it stands. And, yes, I will be waiting patiently for the musical take on this.

Terrific write!

Deej

Good point!.. by box, I meant the day of the week on a calendar. Would changing to "square" clarify?
