This one was a challenge for me. Trying to deliver the message without it being too much like “Motherhood” or “Whole Food”. I found this one easier to write by creating the music to fit the chorus first, then building the song around that. Here's a link to the mp3 if you're interested.

May 15 (SlowPlay)

Verse1
Early morning wake up
And so it begins
This day will be just like the last
Same news, bad news
Someone to blame
Counting losses from the past

Chorus 1 (Karla)
May 15th,
Just another day
May 15th,
What will you bring
May 15th,
Another ordinary day,
May 15th,
Come what may.

Bridge.
Any day you see the sunrise
Is better than being dead
Apathy is a state of mind
Think
Beyond
Your head

Verse2
Any morning wake up
Just let it begin
Seize the day and make it last
There is no other time
There is no tomorrow
No regrets about the past

Chorus 2
May 15th,
An extra-ordinary day
May 15th,
The chance you bring
May 15th,
Not like any other day
May 15th,
Come what may

Hey pbee,

Nice job! I was thinking the "May 15" was tough. I like what you did with it. MP3 sounds good. Turn it Up!

Wow, when I scribbled the title "May 15th" down it really was just some random passing thought... now its a song! Good work both of you.

I like the balance between the two verses. Maybe a little trite, but its true, and something we always seem to forget.

Way to go, good job. I really like being able to hear a song not just read the lyrics (gotta get me working on that), obviously you get a better feel for the song. I like the "triteness" and the change in the second chorus. Great playing, G. :)

Liked your song, pbee. Was disappointed that I wasn't able to get this thing working right so I could hear it. I'll keep trying, but I liked the lyrics.
Good work.

Joe
