Lyrics and Rhythm Guitar

20 posts in this topic

I'm learning to play guitar and like to make up my own songs. I call this one 'Dark Walk in the Park'. It means a lot to me. I wrote it for someone i love...someone who can't understand my love for her. this is my attempt to explain it to her.

Title - Dark Walk in the Park

Every day I think of you
And how things could have been
Hoping you are doing well
Not fighting yourself for time
Can't you tell I miss you
Don't you know I Love you
And want you to be happy

It's a Dark Walk in the Park
Here without you
Wanting to see you smile
It's a Dark Walk
Praying to all my Gods
Waiting for you to understand my Love
It's a Dark Walk
A Dark Walk in the Park

Time is passing us by
And we don't learn any better
We don't see the love all around us
Nature we're given in order to survive
Can't you see I miss you
Don't you know I Love you
And want you to own this world

It's a Dark Walk in the Park
Here without you
Wanting to see you smile
It's a Dark Walk
Praying to all my Gods
Waiting for you to understand my Love
It's a Dark Walk
A Dark Walk in the Park

I don't have all the answers
But you need to know I love you
I want to hold your hand
Make all of your pain go away
Can't you tell that I miss you
Don't you see I Love You
And gave you all of my heart

It's a Dark Walk in the Park
Here without you
Wanting to see you smile
It's a Dark Walk
Praying to all my Gods
Waiting for you to understand my Love
It's a Dark Walk
A Dark Walk in the Park

George, that's actually some brilliant riffing.

 

You might have noticed I rarely say anything in the "member creations" forum, and that's because if I don't have anything nice to say, I don't say anything.

 

I'm commenting because this is pretty good.

 

You really should try to hammer it into an actual song.

It's good! It reminds me a bit of Opeth (how they used to be). I don't know if it's the harmonies or the sound or both, but you should definitely make it into a song.

Dark Walk in the Park....nice melody...guitar work sounds a little like Metallica to me...nice!

 

Be sure to share the lyrics when you get them written!  Please keep practicing!

Sam,

I'm glad my song held your interest and especially glad that you liked it. I have several songs that I'm working on, but this one is my favorite.

I had combined my Bikers Holiday and Dark Walk in the Park into one post...but I didn't like it that way so I edited this one. I did so because this song means the most to me...i wrote the lyric for someone i truely love and miss...i want this song to stand alone.

Sam,

Sure. Feel free to sing to them! If you decided to sing my songs i'd ask that you share it with everyone on the forum...so we all can hear you. i'd love to hear Dark Walk in the Park with my lyrics...they mean a lot to me. my friend Darrin is a musician and has some production ability so we are going to work on my songs, but i have no problem with you singing to them. Please do! Remember though...please share your results.

I previously posted a song called 'Dark Walk in the Park' here in Member Creations. This is another song I'm working on...it's called 'Bikers Holiday'. The song is probably more like the 70's rock I grew up listening to....can't say you'll like it.

Bikers Holiday (lyrics)

Call up All of your friends
Gather for a fast and furious ride
Down paths to natures hidden gems
Within this beautifully created land

It’s a Bikers Holiday
Riding off into the sun
We’ll all meet together
Going to have some fun
Be with those we love
It’s a Bikers Holiday

We’ll figure out this world's problems
While riding on two wheels
Rolling down our roads and trails
Enjoying the scenes all the way

It’s a Bikers Holiday
Riding off into the sun
We’ll all meet together
Going to have some fun
Be with those we love
It’s a Bikers Holiday

Another ride from the heart
Another day to share with you
Going the long way home
We’ll never stop...we’ll never stop

It’s a Bikers Holiday
Riding off into the sun
We’ll all meet together
Going to have some fun
Be with those we love
It’s a Bikers Holiday

This is called 'Backdoor Politics'. Lyrics written...but i'm working om them. I screwed up the ending pretty bad...but i'm not a very good player yet. i hope to improve.

 

Backdoor Politics (lyrics)

Politics in Our lives

Are not fair or just

We work and Slave

To maintain our existence

Having Government fighting us

All of the way

 

Backdoor Politics

Leaders Use Our strengths

To make themselves Rich

Ruining Our Countries

And selling Our Souls

With their Backdoor Politics

 

We need to fix Our World

Work with each other

End our misery

Raise each other up

We don't need the elite

We can think for ourselves

 

Backdoor Politics

Leaders Use Our strengths

To make themselves Rich

Ruining Our Countries

And selling Our Souls

With their Backdoor Politics

 

Your rules will be defeated

We will put you out

Make you work with us

You'll have to earn a living

As it is meant to be

For now and in our future

 

Backdoor Politics

Leaders Use Our strengths

To make themselves Rich

Ruining Our Countries

And selling us out

With their Backdoor Politics

I have this other song I'm working on. I'm not a good guitar player yet. Maybe someday? Rain On Your Love is something I want to do for someone else. Rain on their love and hope it will grow into something beautiful. Something I believe in.

Rain On Your Love (lyrics)

When I first met you
I knew you were the one
Powerful, elegant, and smart
No one can compare to you

I Want to Rain on your love
And watch it grow
Into many beautiful flowers
You'll be willing to show

You have all the answers
To questions I'm not allowed to give
So we distant...very far apart
I'm not sure what I did

I Got to Rain on your love
And hope it grows
Into many beautiful flowers
You'll be willing to show

Our ending will be written
However Gods may choose
But We are lions in the stars
It is time to fix our broken lives

I Rain on your love
And watch it grow
Into many beautiful flowers
You will show

Let it rain...

This one is painful...but we all have to live with it. I'll keep changing little things here and there...try to make it a better lyric.

 

Love Goes Away (lyrics)

 

We can't know our future

And our love changes fast

One day we're happy

The next we lose everything

How do we cope

And forget about love?

 

Love goes away

There's nothing anyone can do

I must move on

And Not think of her

Love goes away

It just disappears

 

We hurt and we heal

Lean on our friends

And learn to become better people

Heartbreak takes its toll

While we continue on

Trying to mend our broken Soul

 

Love goes away

There's nothing anyone can do

I must move on

And Not think of her

Love goes away

She just disappears

 

We're all just human

And must deal with our feelings

Love hurts us to our core

So We let it go

We just let love go!!

 

Love goes away

There's nothing anyone can do

I must move on

And Not think of her

Love goes away

She just disappears

Lyrics are updated and rhythm guitar re-recorded. I really have to do that with all of these rhythm guitar videos!

 

March of the Gods

 

I go it alone in this world

No one is here to help me

Deal with my pain and suffering

Life and time...both seem so cruel

What am I supposed think...and do

 

The march of the Gods

Proceeds across my chest

My Gods will have their way

I must continue to do my best

Against The march of the Gods

 

I have no true Lover

I can't  count on anyone else

I am all that I ever will have

It is my task to find the key

To unlock my forbidden Joy

 

The march of the Gods

Proceeds across my chest

My Gods will have their way

I must continue to do my best

Against The march of the Gods

 

I will never quit on myself

Don't intend to give into despair

I Pray for my Gods to forgive me

Their Nature is my source of happiness

I have continued hope for her Love

 

The march of the Gods

Proceeds into my heart

My Gods will have their way

I always want to do my best

For the Gods of Mother Earth

George, this stuff is brilliant. I really think you should put out an album on bandcamp or something. I love backdoor politics especially. Save this world. Yes. We will save this world. All of us together. We don't need to wait for politics to save the world. We can do it ourselves.

Thanks Sam! I'm glad you agree and understand me... Those are my feelings about politics. It's nice to know i'm not the only one who feels this way. My songs are simple...but they are my feelings on different things...so I'll continue to post them. i wish i had more happy songs like Bikers Holiday. At least Rain On Your Love and March of the Gods end on positive vibes.

 

I'm sure I will eventually have enough songs to make a record...but I'm not a hugely smart man. I know nothing about making a record...I believe eugenia could do it...such a smart young lady! just not sure i could produce a record... I'd need lots of help.

Producing a record is one of those scary phrases industry invented to make you believe you need a studio to make a record :P In all honesty, in this day and age there is no reason for professional studios. Like, at all. I have no idea why people go into studios anymore. Google altairograph and listen to my metal songs. Composed in Melody Assistant and done with the sounds of Guitar Pro 6. Total cost: About 100 dollars. Cost of a good microphone: At most 200 dollars. Your guitar and amplifier cost more than my entire setup. 

 

And yes I know, not everybody is a multimedia talent and not everybody has been composing since they were 15 years old bla bla bla nonsense. People are just uninformed (like you), believe the industry blindly (basically most active famous bands) or they are spoiled brats who have no clue how hard work is even spelled (*cough* PARAMORE and its evil brethren *cough*).

Thank you Sam! I will check out these titles you have given me. I have a friend who will help me with recording...and he has various software he uses. I just have to wait until he gets his office cleaned out....might take awhile...he's a busy man. he's produced his own covers of popular songs...he does a great job with music production. he even produced a ghost hunting show for one season...it is called Mo Valley Paranormal...i'm sure you could find some of the shows online. considering his very low budget...the results of his productions are very good.

Another one i'm working on...i actually feel i'm still working on all of them...sorry the video is so poor. maybe i can record it again?

 

The Sun Will Shine

 

I woke up this morning

And knew my day would go right

I was the man with a plan

Positive attitude all the way

What more can be said!

 

The Sun will shine on me

There is love in my heart

No one can take it away

Always be yourself...who you are

The Sun will shine

 

I have a dream to keep alive

Someone to lighten my life

I know for certain

What I intend to do

Not a Soul can change my plan

 

The Sun will shine on me

There is love in my heart

No one can take it away

Always be yourself...who you are

The Sun will shine

 

Goodbye and Hello

My Laughing and sharing friend

Smiles and love to you always

Nothing else I'll ever need

I have my life to give

 

The Sun will shine

Love is in our hearts

Let no one take it away

The Sun will shine

This song is about our battles with anger and depression. I do have rhythm guitar for this latest lyric...but i don't have it recorded yet. I believe i'll re-record all my rhythms to MP3...no one needs to see me play my simple guitar patterns. I'll put them on Soundcloud.

 

What's Your Problem (lyrics)

 

You think you know me so well

Better look at yourself

Solve your anger

Why do you hate so much?

You can change your song

 

What's Your Problem

You want answers

To all your questions...So Very Deep

What's Your problem

Find the solutions

To Your Depressions...it's not that easy

 

Don't give up on friends

Do what you need to do

You should not accept

Losing an innocent love

Forgive everyone

 

What's Your Problem

You want answers

To all your questions...So Very Deep

What's Your problem

Find the solutions

To Your Depressions...it's not that easy

 

We move on with life

It's what we all must do

Work hard for change

And forgive our imperfections

Our journey might not end?

 

What's Your Problem

You want answers

To all your questions...So Very Deep

What's Your problem

Find the solutions

To Your Depressions...it's not that easy

That's really good. I'm glad you are still making music. It sounds a bit like something in between Metallica and AC/DC.

Yes...I am...but I'm trying to learn songs for a friend of mine. He's in a band that plays a lot of different styles of music. Mostly well known cover songs. They call themselves Covered In Jelly. I have a song of my own that I plan to share on here sometime soon...it just takes a lot of time to learn these cover songs. I can do God of Thunder -Kiss, Born To Be Wild - Steppenwolf, Destroyer - The Kinks, Gone Away - The Offspring, Zombie - The Cranberries, I Fought the Law - The Clash, and Paranoid - Black Sabbath. That's pretty good variety.
