Topic starter  

This week I get something off my chest in a song thanks to Bob's topic. Basically it's about the past. It's about my first girlfriend, that nearly ruined my life. So, it sounded like a good idea to write a song about her. It's also a very rough draft and nowhere near as impressive as other member's pieces.

"Burning Bridges"

I can't have the years you took from me
It was only about you, so blind to see
Always moving from guy to guy
Oh, how I wished you would die
Shattered what heart I had
Did my best from going mad

Memory of you burned in me
A tattoo you left on me
Just want to erase you
To be free of you
To never have known you

Cursed with you….forever
I burned your pictures
I shredded your letters
Let you standing on the bridge as it burned
Swept away, out of my life

You're the ghost that haunts me
You're the creature that stalks me
You're the witch that curses me

Sky hasn't fallen, ‘cause your not here
Found better things that bring me cheer
Gone our separate ways
No more playing games in your maze
Long drained are my tears
I've had better luck with broken mirrors

A subconscious memory you left me
Tattooed with rage that's still with me
Just want to blame you
To hate you
To destroy you

You're the ghost that haunts me
You're the creature that stalks me
You're the witch that curses me

We went our separate ways
Those long forgotten days
We've become just passers by
I'm letting this memory die….

"If I had a time machine, I'd go back and tell me to practise that bloody guitar!" -Vic Lewis

Everything is 42..... again.

Hello Ghost

I really enjoyed this song and especially this :

You're the ghost that haunts me
You're the creature that stalks me
You're the witch that curses me

I am a bit concerned about some of the placement of your lyrics , first verse

I wish you would die

then you talk / sing about hate ect ..

Surely the hateing would come first then the wish of death ?

Just my opinion

L.K

Aghhhh

Not only am I a senior citizen

I'm now a bloody senior member

Are you people trying to tell me I'm old or what ?

over 700 posts ( I really do need to get out more )
