    A Song You Wished You'd Written

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Raven, Mar 22, 2007.

    Theres so many great songs out there. Some that are really well written and really good.

    But As someone who often from time to time writes a song I sometimes wished that some of the songs written by legends Id written.

    In Particular I wish Id written Sympathy For The Devil.
    I favourite band Of Mine Called the Black Crowes did a really good acoustic version of that particular song.

    So One of the songs Id wished Id written is : Sympathy For The Devil

    A song I wished I had written would have to be "Behind Blue Eyes" by Limp Bizkit. But I think I only said that because I just watched the movie "Gothika" and that is the theme song to it.

    There is a song that I really wished I had written but I can't remember the name or the artist...it's a song that the artist wrote after his girlfriend died in a car accident. It's a famous song and most people will probably know it but I just can't think of the name or the artist.

    Oh, a song I wish I had written would probably be..."Claire" by Jimmy Eat World. Such a beautiful song.

    One chance to show your face.
    This one shot, all you get.
    Pass by your one good thing.
    Lift your head back, shoot and chase.
    Never hear you laugh like that, so full
    Not since you were nine.
    Unsettled, severing
    Always severing old ties.
    One last goodbye may last the rest of your life.

    Learn your restricted ropes.
    Paint a cross on your left hand.
    One good thing signed away
    And with it your only hope.
    Attention focused on today
    So quietly slip behind my back.
    Unsettled, severing
    Always severing old ties.
    One last goodbye may last the rest of your life.

    One way trip can work both ways
    And loose end kept untied make better friends.
    The things you buy may someday leave you.

    Can you say full ride?
    I still see you.

    A Place Nearby by Lene Marlin. Slightly morbid but beautiful.

    Goodnight by Buffy Sainte-Marie.

    The Sparrow by Simon and Garfunkel. Lovely little ditty with a message behind it.

    Yeah, we got to do a version of that for our fall play. Guitar and singer and strings and the lot. (Some kid in our school plays the fiddle. Awesome.)
