Haven't written anything new in a while so wanted to try and get this old brain moving..work in progress. Tks glyn

Can't Fight The Night

When the darkness starts to fall
Every part of my body starts to show
Hardest part of the day but I know
Can't fight the night

My heart starts to spin
Inside out ..outside in
There's no way i'm gonna win
Can't fight the night

Your memories flood my mind
I know I don't want you back again
My mind feels you touchin' loving me
Blows my mind such a sin

How do I stop the pain
When the night takes over my brain
Can't someone help me here
Tears escape like a drowning rain


My heart starts to spin
Inside out outside in
There's no way I'm gonna win
Can't fight the night

Everywhere I turn
You are there looking back
Like so many times before
Hate when the skies turn so black

I remember the day you left
Never to return to my life
Loving you hating you
Screaming get outta my site

Again..
My heart starts to spin
Inside out outside in
There's no way I'm gonna win
Can't fight the night

Can't fight the night.....
Owwww

You walk slowly through my
dreams
Why keep coming when I want to sleep
Every night's the same ole' thing
Can't fight the night
Can't fight the night

Can't fight the night

Good to see you're up and running again, Glyn.
The hardest part is starting but you've done that now.

My suggestion would be to introduce a little more positive information in the form of what it was that made her happy back in the day.

Onward and upward.

Vic


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.

Wonder if this is your own experience, either from loss of a spouse or lover or perhaps even a parent or some other loved one maybe you were taking care of. Just curious.

Yes most my songs are from experience...the ones about love and abuse are from late husband that passed in 1995....was a hard lesson.

Hi Glynda,
There are many emotions you tap into in this. It just needs some clarification as to who you are talking to, why, and why you would think about wanting them back. Good luck with it,


Have a goodun,

I Can't Fight The Night copyright Glynda

You walk slowly through my dreams
when I only want to sleep
Every night's the same ole' thing
Just when I'm dreamin' deep
I Can't Fight The Night (Employing the title, THE Hook, to end each Verse, makes it a Refrain-Type Chorus, as opposed to a Stanza-Type, comprised of multiple Lines, like a Verse.)

When the darkness starts to fall
my body starts to show
It's time to lay it all down
It's hard to do you know
I Can't Fight The Night

(Bridge)
My heart starts to spin
Inside out ..outside in
There's no way I'm gonna win
I Can't Fight The Night

Your memories flood my mind
I don't want you back again
My mind feels you touchin' me
It feels like such a sin
I Can't Fight The Night

Everywhere I turn
the skies have turned so black
Like so many times before
You are there looking back
I Can't Fight The Night

(Bridge)
My heart starts to spin
Inside out ..outside in
There's no way I'm gonna win
I Can't Fight The Night

When the night takes my brain
Tears escape like a drowning rain
Can't someone help me here
How do I stop the pain
I Can't Fight The Night

I remember when you left
Never to return to my life
Loving you hating you
Screaming, "Get out of my sight!"
I Can't Fight The Night

My heart starts to spin
Inside out ..outside in
There's no way I'm gonna win
I Can't Fight The Night

(Coda)
You walk slowly through my dreams
when I only want to sleep
I Can't Fight The Night
I Can't Fight The Night
I Can't Fight The Night

A Song needs the element of 'Repetition' to supply 'Structure' the listener can relate to.
A Song needs the element of 'Change' to keep it from being monotonous, enabling listeners to become 'un-Hooked'.
A Bridge supplies that element of Change. After two Verses my mind enjoys that new Melody, perhaps a new cadence to the vocal delivery of the Lyric. When the Melody and cadence of the two Verses I've already heard returns in a third Verse, my ear welcomes it back. I 'learned' it when I heard it before, got Hooked, stayed Hooked, the Bridge renews my interest, and I'm ready for more of the element of Repetition.
How long a Song can go on without letting a listener come un-Hooked depends on the Song, in all its elements of Structure, Repetition, Change, vocal timbre, sense of the Singer-Character in the Song, the story they tell, the arrangement of musical accompaniment, and a universe of factors in the listener themselves.
In this edit I simply tried for regularity of Rhythm & Rhyme, Repetition and Change, and simplifying the coherence of the concept embodied in the title. I think it could work.
