Songs are poetry to music

I wrote this song right after I got out of the hospital after I was Dx with type 1.  Since then it has become our favorite song to play as a band, but I've always felt that it had a very poetic side to it.

Shadow in the Dark

She snuck upon me like a shadow in the dark

She took the world I knew and she tore it all apart

And now I’m tryin’ but I cant tell night from day

And now I’ve lost my place and I cannot find a way

Back to a place where I feel I belong,

back to a place where I can do no wrong,

I’m losing my grip and I wont last very long,

Fighting alone…

I awake at the dawn, and I cant find an escape

She’s tied to me tight, and I’m burning at the stake

I know she’ll stay strong until the bitter end

I’m lyin’ in my bed and I’m tryin’ to pretend

That I’m back to a place where I can do no wrong,

back to a place where I feel I belong ,

I’m losing my grip and I wont last very long,

Fighting alone…

Here I am, and I’m standing on my own

I’m holding my breath and my future is unknown

It’s a one man show, a race against the clock

It’s a balancing act, this tight rope that a walk

Back to a place where I feel I belong,

back to a place where I can do no wrong,

I’m losing my grip and I wont last very long,

Fighting alone…

ohh i like it. it reminds me of my poem that i posted on here. had nothing to do with the D but hey it works.

that's really good!

i write lyrics and play guitar too.

*applause!*

This is beautiful! I'd love to hear it with music.

well done,so much can be said though a poem.

Andy has a web site, and you can hear the song on there. I'll see if I can find it :D

i really like this.
it really explains how i feel.

Wow, you are some songwriter...here's a song of mine...oh, and would anybody join me if we created a diabetic muscians group here on Juvenation??? Haven't seen anything like it yet...

 

Can I send a postcard to heaven

Cuz I wish you were here

Can I send a postcard to heaven

Cuz I need you dear

Can I send a message somehow

So I know you're safe know

If I pray a little harder

Mayber God will let me see

I miss your laugh

I miss your smile

You used to make it all worthwhile

I miss the love

I miss the joy

I even miss those little ploys

I miss you dear

I need you here

Can I

CHORUS

I prayed so hard

God had a plan of his own

I think he forgot

That leaves me all alone

I've got nowhere to go

Not sure who to blame

Life will never be the same

CHORUS

Can I send a postcard to heaven

Cuz I wish you were here

Maria, that's really good, especially considering how young you are. You've got some talent.

Maria, have you written music for the song too?  Do you sing and/or play an instrument?
I'll join you in a musicians group.  I play the piano and compose too.

I also play the piano. I hate to admit it, but I haven't played in quite some time. I took lessons for about 6 or 7 years before quitting, but I still play sometimes. I recently got a copy of sheet music to a song I've been wanting to learn, but haven't sat down to teach myself yet. Maybe I'll try to do that before school starts.
