I count your stars like scars in the sky
fissures in galaxies
hurricanes swallowing the atmosphere

I wonder where you are and where you go
what brings you back here
to this shipwreck and the ghosts it bleeds

you're the winter sun that burns my skin
the bright light searing
photographs fading in the breaking foam
faces drown alone
in the deep and winding
black and brisk and blinding
wide and white and whirling tide

I see the winds swirling in your eyes
the cold front rising
rainstorms breaking in your wake

I try to hold you but you slip away
somewhere far away
but I know that you'll be here again

you're the summer breeze that chills the air
the secret haunting
memories crystallise within the haze
forest run ablaze
in the deep and winding
black and brisk and blinding
blue and white and burning flame
We were born to be amazing.

(Am C G Em)(Am E Am)
Come now come now sweet child of fire
come lay now by the waves

(Em G D Em)(Am E Am)
you fought so bravely to your pire
and all your life you gave

(Am G C Em)(Am E Am)
have courage now, in death as in war
and we'll sing of your deeds till dawn

(Am G C Em)(Am E Am)
the worlds great defender a hero of lore
the bravest was ever born

(Am C G Em)
and elf of the forest
with the might of the wood

(Am C G Em)
a dwarf of the mountains
with a will made of iron

(Am C D Em)
a pheonix soaring
with the wind in her blood

(Am E Am)
and a heart that burns like fire
the heart that burns like fire
We were born to be amazing.

Ofcourseyou'regonnasinglikeaheronwhenyoukeeprecordingitat1am

https://vocaroo.com/i/s0oyyWYWlAmN

the clock tower on bell avenue
it ticks a solemn song
a ballad to the vagabonds
the ones who don't belong

they say she listens in the night
for hearts been stilled by frost
and on each hour she cries aloud
for all the girls she's lost

sweet merry, merry, merry bell
ring your morning tone
the night is dark and cold and hard
and I want to go home
We were born to be amazing.

So we get songs and poetry?! These are great Tenyo!

I really enjoyed listening to that first one especially - and that pair of "you're the winter sun that burns my skin" & "you're the summer breeze that chills the air" was a really smart parallel - I liked that!

I could not get the link for song 2 to work. Though I'm enjoying your word choice/phrasing for both of those last two. Looking forward to reading & hearing more of your pieces. :)
but i don't think i can ever love someone
who doesn't understand that teal
is a different color than dark cyan.

[G D C D]

There once was a boy with a heart made of iron
he had a grand life but spent most of it crying

The tinkerer tinkered and twisted and toiled
and all the boy found was that his tears where now oiled

The herbalist tried to make it grow with fertiliser
and the boy continued crying and crying none the wiser

the alchemist tried to turn it to gold
but a heart made of metal will always be cold

the mancer tried magic to bring it to life
but peculiar rituals just brought him more strife

until he said, go! now leave me alone
I wish to grow old and die on my own

the tinkerer, herbalist, alchemist, and mancer
all got up, and what was left, was a little girl dancer

She said I don't want to change you, I wouldn't know what it takes
Just let me dance to your heart and the sound that it makes

It's okay if you cry too much, or that you've so many scars
I think that you're perfect just the way that you are

There once was a girl with a story to be told
who danced with a boy with a heart made of gold
We were born to be amazing.

[GDCD] I know you up there little star
[DCGD] now tell me where you've gone

the city lights have drown the sky
and now I am alone

wish one day the wind will come
and push away the light

and maybe then this city here
will finally say good night
We were born to be amazing.

@soundofmind
Aw man, that's so beautiful <3 My heart just melted. Thank you for letting me hear it! I still need to practice a lot before I'll be at the quality I want and your version gives me something to aspire to. I can't get over how pretty you make it sound.

I know it's only half finished but that's okay because it's NaPo and also 1am.

[GDGD]
if cries for help
were like paper boats
I could light the
with the notes I wrote

[GDGE]
candles drifted
out on an open tide
and when they sank
I held my head and cried

[GDAE][GDAE]
the world is changing
and I can't find you
the sky is falling down
you disappear
into your mirror
and I fall to the ground
We were born to be amazing.

A G A Eb
some people don't believe the devil is real
C G A Eb
well I spent three years in his bed

A G A Eb
Felt those claws digging into my skin
C G A Eb
those parasitic words crawling in my head

A G A Eb
you can't say that demons they don't really exist
C G A Eb
till you've felt them knocking at your door

A G A Eb
keep checking the locks to keep them out
C G A Eb
while they're praying to the man you love

A G A Eb
now I've done my years in purgatory
C G A Eb
so don't dare try to tell me that I'm wrong

A G A Eb
his blood runs cold and tastes like silver
C G A Eb
and by the time you see him you're already gone
We were born to be amazing.

Haven't got around to putting chords to this, but at 1am and writing in two languages hurts my brain so I'm gonna call it a night and leave this here as a place marker.

efallai y bydd hi'n edrych fel oen
ond fe'i codwyd gyda'r bleiddiaid
fleeting through the blighted high up winds
ar wyn y mynydd

mae hi wedi bod yn ymladd am oes
ers y diwrnod y cafodd ei geni
y cyfan mae'n ei wybod yw sut
i oroesi

mountains bow down x3 to her
byddwch yn ddewr x 3 oen eira

dydych chi erioed wedi gweld
brwydr yn rhywbeth fel
un nad yw'n perthyn
i'r lle hwn

home will be here soon
We were born to be amazing.
