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

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
