So, what to write about?

So, I’m sitting at my parent’s desktop and staring at the screen. I’m not sure exactly what to write about, I’ve never done a blog before. It’s like when I sit at my desk and think about a new song to write or how to continue whatever book I’m working on at the moment.

I ask myself, Well, what do you want to talk about? And I answer myself, how about a song? After all, I am listening to one of my favorite bands at the moment (which is Nine Lashes, if your one of the curious people). I finished writing another song just recently. Except, it isn’t really a song, exactly. I know how to sing it and I do now and then, just to test it out. But it really is just the lyrics to a song. I don’t know how to play an instrument, although I have a goal set to learn how to play the guitar.

Anyway, I’ll share this one with you. I plan on collecting all the song lyrics I’ve written and make it into a book, a song lyric book. Perhaps one day they can be made into actual songs for the world to hear, who knows?

Piece by Piece

Piece by piece

I’ll take apart the memory

Make sure it dissipates away

Little by little

I’ll soon forget the melody

Of us swaying to an inner music

Day by day

It’ll slowly start to fade away

Empty echoes of a happy time

I will never see the good you saw in me

I will always see the flaws you saw in me

I will never know why you chose to love me

But I will never forget why you began to hate me

I can never stop this from eating away at me

You could always tell what was bothering me

Now I find myself without the anchor to my lifeboat

So I find myself drifting along without a cause

Piece by piece

I’ll take apart the memory

Make sure it dissipates away

Little by little

I’ll soon forget the melody

Of us swaying to an inner music

Day by day

It’ll slowly start to fade away

Empty echoes of a happy time

I can see where it went wrong

Your fault and mine combined

A broken record, darkened song

Charging on, a love denied

I will never see the good you saw in me

I will always see the flaws you saw in me

I will never know why you chose to love me

But I will never forget why you began to hate me

Piece by piece

I’ll take apart the memory

Make sure it dissipates away

Little by little

I’ll soon forget the melody

Of us swaying to an inner music

Day by day

It’ll slowly start to fade away

Empty echoes of a happy time

So, there’s one of the many song lyrics I’ve written. Let me know what you think. 🙂

  1. Beautiful lyrics. Great idea to make your lyrics into a book.

  2. Yes, nice. I found myself trying to fit a tune to it, which is always a good sign. Why not a book?

  3. Great idea, Abigail. Go for it!
