Sorry miss bethaboo!!!

Here is a new challenge that I felt a need to post

Seeing as how I've miss all you guys and I know at least a few have missed me lol... I figured a challenge about missing things would be in order or more specifically in this challenge... A song about missing someone without giving away who... It's actually interesting how difficult this can be (cause of course I just wrote one lol), Mostly because it requires deep emotion and vague information... Please forgive my lyric as it is rather disjointed and free in it's form... Hope to see what you all come up with

Derek aKa

P.S

Thanks to Lynn for pointing out the new format will try to comply sooner in the future wink hey that was a near rhyme grin ! (might need to add that last phrase to my hook list wink )

I missed you

1st Verse
There were moments in the middle
That took me back in time
And answers to the riddle
That was playing in my mind

2nd Verse
So many thoughts rolling
Through the backstreets of my mind
Til' the truth started unfolding
And I finally found the time

Lift
No question why I was feeling this pain
Was in the cold til' I stepped out of the rain

Chorus
I missed you
I missed the way things used to be
I missed you
I missed how it felt to be free
To do the things
I know we always wanted to do
But most of all
I missed you...

3rd Verse
Many moments passing by
The sun fades the colors shown
Like rain or tears been cried
Lets the old colors start to flow

Lift
Starting over seems bring such release
Liked thawing out after a deep freeze

Chorus
I missed you
I missed the way things used to be
I missed you
I missed how it felt to be free
To do the things
I know we always wanted to do
But most of all

oh....
I missed you

Good morning Derek, wouldn't want to "miss" this one. Nice to have been missed so again welcome back. You might want to change your topic title to "Challenge #43 Missing Someone" since we kind of keep them numbered and that way an interested JPF'er can give a quick look and know the theme of the challenge like we've done w/all the others. Heading off to work, but I'll post later for sure.

Best,
Lynn smile

back again Derek. Had this one on tap. Progressive chorus smile

“You’d Miss Me”
(c)2010 Lynn Orloff


If you only have a moment babe
A moment’s all I’ll take
Cause it only takes a moment for
This heart of mine to break
I’ll keep it brief, I promise
I only ask that you just listen
I want to know if you considered well
All the things that you’d be missin’

You’d miss our curl-ups on the couch, my little kisses on your head
How we’d stay up late and watch the stars, all the sweet things that I said
You’d miss our Sunday picnics in the park how we'd laugh until we cried
The way I whispered softly in your ear, you’d miss me babe if it’s goodbye


You tell me that you think we’re through
Sometimes things just have to end
There isn’t much that we can do
Though we always will be friends
But darlin’ please just reconsider
Before you throw it all away
I know that if you think this through
Your head will tell your heart to stay

You’d miss the love notes that I left you at those unexpected times
My not-so-funny jokes you’d laugh at and those endless corny rhymes
The way I’d hug you so much tighter everytime you went away
Babe I know that you would miss me, so I’m beggin you to stay


Bridge
We must’ve shared a thousand smiles with memories burning deep
There’s so much more that waits in store so darlin’ please don’t leave

Cause I’d miss the chance to tell you that I love you everyday
And I don’t think I could breathe again if you just up and walk away
I know your heart would come to miss me, though you might not think it now
So darling give us one more try, I know we’ll work it out somehow

Untamed. by Polly Hager

I've been your friend for so long, so much that we've gone through
Loved you since the day we met, but I could not keep you
So I held on as a confidant and a best friend through the years
And every time you talked about her I choked back the tears

Now you're upset, so done with her, and you need an ear to bend
I've always been here in thick and thin, a lifeline without end
You mention moving on WITH ME but something just don't seem right
If you had loved me way back when we'd be as one tonight

I MISS...the laughter that we shared together
I MISS...the complicated love we had
I MISS...the way our eyes could melt eachother
I MISS...the YOU that was in love...with me.

It's all gonna be alright, I'll be cool and we'll be friends always
Like nothing ever happened, 'cause that's the way that you feel
You have a life and a purpose I'm not part of, these days
I have to get out of this cloud and see what is real

I MISS...the way we drove eachother totally insane
I MISS...the look you gave when I went too far
I MISS...the way you always spoke my name
I MISS...the YOU that found ME...the YOU that found ME...Untamed.

Had this li'l country death metal song that seemed like it might fit the 'missing" challenge thing. It's about a suicide... Link is www.soundclick.com/share?songid=9144855. lyrics follow. The band will be doing this one tomorrow at the "Rocktoberfest."

ANGEL IN CHAINS
--J. Wrabek

1.
I left you lying under the bus
After I was sure you weren’t waking up
I heard you say that you’d had enough
And nothing was going to change…
They’ll take your head and cut it open wide
And try to figure out why you died
And see if there’s anything left inside
That anyone would want to save…

CHORUS:
I’m leaving now, and it’s for the best
I love you still, but I need my rest
I’ve got a life, and I’m sorry it ain’t strange…
And I don’t suppose I’ll be seeing you again…
Angel in chains
Angel in chains
Angel in chains…

2.
Conjuring spirits every night
Never knowing which ones were nice
Four short walls with nothing at all
To keep the nightmares away…
I kept the photographs of me and you
And all the dreams that never came true
I guess I was a prisoner, too
But you managed to escape…

CHORUS:

[LEAD BREAK, IF ANYONE CAN PLAY LEAD]

3.
Recreational handcuffs are still on the bed
Along with the whips, and the drugs you left
I’d like to take away all of you
But some things have got to stay…
I didn’t know it’d be this hard
I was all prepared for being apart
But this feels like driving off in a car
When the roads are all melted away…

CHORUS:
I’m leaving now, and it’s for the best
I love you still, but I need my rest
I’ll get a life, and it prob’ly won’t be strange…
And I don’t suppose I’ll be seeing you again…
Angel in chains
Angel in chains
Angel in chains…

Whew! Joe's a Tough Act to Follow...heh! OK..here's one Based on A True Story...

"(LIFE WILL) NEVER BE THE SAME"

It Was a Long Flight to Phoenix
It was Winter, It was Cold
But The Doctors Said To-Hurry
Any Minute..She Could Go

(CHORUS)
Her Heart was On The Weak Side
& The Cancer Spread The Pain
And I Knew..as I Took That Taxi
LIFE WOULD NEVER..BE THE SAME
LIFE WOULD NEVER..BE THE SAME
LIFE WILL NEVER..BE THE SAME...

And She Smiled Wide as She Saw Me
She Had Waited for A Week
I Told Her I Had Missed Her
As I Kissed Her On The Cheek

(CHORUS)
& The Room Smelled Antiseptic
Nurses In-&-Out-Again
When the Doc Showed Me The X-Rays..I Knew
LIFE WOULD NEVER..BE THE SAME
LIFE WOULD NEVER..BE THE SAME
LIFE WILL NEVER...BE THE SAME--

(BRIDGE)
We Spent that Next Day Sharing Mem'ries
Golden Moments from Our Past
While the Morphine Hid The Truth:
There was No Way This Could Last...

So I Think-Back to That Moment
When I Held Her Hand, in-Death
Why Had She Chosen Me..Her Escort
As She Found Her Final Rest?

(CHORUS)
But She Gave My Life New Meaning
In Some Ways..I Can't Explain
When You See Love & Death..Together
LIFE WILL NEVER..BE THE SAME
LIFE WILL NEVER..BE THE SAME
LIFE CAN NEVER...BE...
THE SAME.

Well, maybe I am giving away who the "missing person" is too much. Here is one of those 50/90 skirmish songs. We were given a title and then had to write/record a song in one hour. Keep that in mind if you listen to the song (ha, ha). I'll be coming back to re-do this one soon.

***************************************************

Back Home To The Rain
(c) Emmrich 2010

I left there a long time ago
wanted to see the sun
I found out certain things
are not that fun
so it's home
it's back home to the rain

lots of folks talk about how
great the beach is
with the tans, the curves
and the sands
but one thing I've found
that the beach doesn't have
is the girl I can't live without

So it's back, back to seattle
yea, it's a long way to travel
and I wonder if she feels the same
I'll take that chance and it's home,
it's back home to the rain

I've walked many miles in my shoes
I've wondered if other folks' might fit
I've heard the talk and often thought
I just don't know when it's time to quit

So it's back, back to seattle
yea, it's a long way to travel
and I wonder if she feels the same
I'll take that chance and it's home,
it's back home to the rain

I discovered I like the clouds
and gray's not that bad a shade
so if you don't mind, I think it's time
to go back home to the rain

So it's back, back to seattle
yea, it's a long way to travel
and I wonder if she feels the same
I'll take that chance and it's home,
it's back home to the rain

Cool, you reminded me of one of my songs I haven't done in a while.

Pheromone Cocktail (c) 2000 Richard Abath

Well it's been quite a while & I ain't found no one new
I meet a lot of nice ladies but there ain't no follow through
I need a pheromone cocktail
I need a straight shot of you

I can still picture clearly that sparkle in your eyes
Like a diamond in the desert twinkling under sunny skies
How long has it been? Time moves quickly through our lives

Well the snow's piling up right outside my cabin door
And I'm searching for a warmth that I can't find anymore
Memories blaze in my mind
As I reach out across time
Searching through all reason & rhyme
Wonderin what was true
I need a pheromone cocktail
I need a straight shot of you
