#8 FAWM for me in 2018 (I swear this is a good thing)

last year I got consumed in my writing during fawm.. dark places.. trying to find the light. it even carried itself months after fawm was over. it was crazy.. then I stopped

I've been a bit off ever since.. (though I was grateful for the reprieve) and I keep thinking of that lyric-art challenge I set out to do last fawm (but didn't) and so I'm glad February is back.. I've been counting down


rรชve fleur


the backdrop on me:
I'm not a musician, and I don't sing. I'm an artist of paint and words...probably inspired by you. I tend to reach states of euphoria when exploring forests and chasing sunsets.

I've been absolutely humbled and amazed at what the musicians here on fawm have come up with when breathing life into my lyrics. I've somehow stumbled into the graces of some talented musicians since starting fawm, that have made amazing demos out of the abstract stories in my head. It has encouraged me to keep pushing the limits in my writing and in my creativity pursuits. Thank you for that know who you are.

USE OF MY LYRICS: if any of my lyrics resonate with you and you want to put them to music...please let me know - and come say hi. : ) If a demo is made, go ahead and post it and link me as the collab. If a demo has already been done by another musician, don't let that hold you back from doing your own.

As for making them available to the general public in any form..that's discussed on an individual it stays here on FAWM unless otherwise discussed. : )

Also.. I'm no writing expert by any means.. but I get sad if my work is heavily rearranged or changed, especially the meaning. I understand that in order to fit the technicalities of music.. sometimes changing is what's if something isn't working.. let me know - lets work it together.

p.s. I can be found on ig sometimes...

    I was wondering why everything got locked up. Of course I'll email you an MP3 of the demo.
    It's weird

  • @theresaj  Apr 18

    Donโ€™t send John after me! Haha
    Sent you the track ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @alphanerg Mar 12

    Is that the cover art for your album? It is beautiful!

  • @barbara  Mar 4

    Wow, Sue, _rรชve fleur_ is magnificent! I love the way you suggest more than depict; the beauty is so much more palpable to me that way.

  • @barbara  Mar 3

    Hi Sue, thanks for asking. Actually no, I live in Atlanta and wasn't a part of the storm, just joining in to help keep you company. I wrote the last verse that I submitted because I was thinking of you this morning and wondering how you fared, having read your original post about your house. So that was really more of a prayer and a hello and words of empathy for the experience you went through. Did you keep your power?

  • @zecoop  Mar 2

    Hey look... a beautiful painting!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @piney  Mar 1

    Sent u the link on IG. Sorry to make u wait!!!!

  • @kovbleu  Mar 1

    Incredible lyrics and collab on "Tandem Fire." Just wanted to give you props here too!

  • @oddbod  Mar 1

    Hmmm, I lean towards slow generally, but I've no real idea just yet. Hopefully some inspiration will come later when I'm at home.

  • @majordanby  Feb 28

    And thatโ€™s why Dan sings the songs.

  • @majordanby  Feb 27

    Thanks for commenting on โ€œat night I hear the riverโ€. the comments of @jonmeta seem to have uncoverded a subconscious meaning that is probably 100%. I was in hospital when I wrote these words, three weeks in bed and a little out of touch, a long way from home. Everything is good now, but strange times. I think Dan has more of a vision for his songs and practices, I tend to write and then leave them behind as I canโ€™t sing; therefore an eclectic mix. Danโ€™s vocals have been really good recently. Many thanks, Karl.

  • @judypie  Feb 27

    Ummmm *thank!

  • @judypie  Feb 27

    ๐Ÿ˜ Thabk you honey bun!

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 27

    "it's another SK" What's SK? I'm about to read Axiom.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 27

    Thanks. That's what I thought you meant! ๐Ÿ˜

  • @pumpkinhead Feb 26

    Proven and true. Peace sister

  • @pumpkinhead Feb 26

    Here we sit enjoying the good things in life
    Share what we've got and let it thrive
    Look att things passing by in an emotion
    Enjoy in the moment, embrace it and cuddle

    Sit there for a while, then rise

    Then back again in our own bubble
    Search for tiny words, thoughts and pretend to ponder

  • @johncrossman  Feb 26

    Holy cow, I looked away for a few minutes and you're on a tear. Tearing it up. It being February and the universe's words, go you!

  • @lenigmusx1  Feb 24

    I am so glad you enjoy my version of "The way you are". Thank you again for letting me have fun with your lyrics.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 23

    You are having an incredible month! Keep on going! ๐Ÿ˜

  • @majordanby  Feb 22

    Thanks so much, Sue, for your praise of my voice. It has given me a great deal of confidence in myself and has perhaps broken down a few barriers I had built around myself.

  • @coffeeinthesink  Feb 22

    Hey there! Nice to wake up to your comments this morning. It really means a lot. I'll be watchlisting and reading!

  • @lenigmusx1  Feb 22

    Let me know what you think. That was a tough song. It's like 6 minutes๐Ÿ˜ณ

  • @oldlostjohn  Feb 21

    Thank you, I'm relieved you liked my take on Winter River. (Still not sure the false tin whistle came across quite like the icy wind I intended though, or just sounds like a sick train whistle...!)

  • @zecoop  Feb 21

    Once again FAWM is dropping my watchlist and I'm reclaiming them... Why does it do this, but trust me, you were there before and now you are back. Great lyrics on Drink the Water. Loved everything about that one. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @drivebylovefest Feb 21

    awww geez, pleasure was all mine! so nice to work with someone as committed to creating as you. much love and light and excellent creating!

  • @drivebylovefest Feb 21

    hi there, check out your email, sent u a link for drink the water โ˜บ๏ธ

  • @woolford  Feb 20

    Hey Sue, got your message, itโ€™s nice to be your first ๐Ÿ˜€
    I understand your thoughts about the perspective and thatโ€™s no problem at all.
    Iโ€™ll look through some of your other lyrics and see if anything resonates as deeply as Mr. Moon. Damn, thatโ€™s well written though!

  • @woolford  Feb 20

  • @woolford  Feb 20

    Hi Sue- I fell instantly in love with Mr. Moon. Wondered if you would mind if I had a go at it?

  • @lenigmusx1  Feb 20

    Actually, I was thinking full band, Rockish.

  • @lenigmusx1  Feb 20

    Can I take a stab at "The way you are" ?

  • @lenigmusx1  Feb 20

    Thank you for checking out "Stellar Reminants". I am checking out your lyrics to see if there is something we can Collab on๐Ÿ˜Š

  • @alphanerg Feb 18

    Isn't it interesting that people interpret lyrics differently? I think that means they are good lyrics. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @zecoop  Feb 17

    Well you can just send them to me... I'm in awe of people who can paint. I can draw stick men. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @alphanerg Feb 17

    hmmm i thought maybe there was some alternate meaning to the ice cream song that i just didn't get. You should just say there is anyway and go with it ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @zecoop  Feb 17

    I am feeling much better and am so glad. Thank you for asking. I want to see this paintings that you do when my music is playing. I'll keep an eye out on Instagram. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @alphanerg Feb 17

    Thank you so much for all of your comments and listening! LOL @ Pit of Misery, don't worry i wouldn't want to listen to that one either. What was i thinking?

  • @zecoop  Feb 17

    You.... are just wonderful. I was going to say awesome (which also fits, but...) Thank you for all the incredibly nice comments and for giving the songs so much of your time. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @metalfoot  Feb 15

    That *is* really interesting that part of what I came up with is part of what you were hearing because that, um, never happens. Usually my collaborators are like "where on earth did you come up with that musical idea, because that bears no resemblance to what I was thinking!" Thanks again for letting me do this. I love your lyrical talents!

  • @ihelen Feb 15

    Thank you for commenting on the valentine song! Hope your day is going well. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 15

    Haha...i was being over the top/facetious with my Queen, Jaco comment. I do admit though fawm is a bit overwhelming this year (in a good way). It's my first time doing multiple collabs.

  • @oldlostjohn  Feb 15

    I am amazed that anyone can come up with lyrics like those in such in a limited time and I don't feel like I wanna change a thing. And I can hear melody and rhythm as I read them.

  • @scubed  Feb 14

    Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my skirmish song!

  • @oldlostjohn  Feb 14

    Oh I'm fine, no worries.
    It's a beautiful and touching story. I'd be honoured.

  • @oldlostjohn  Feb 14

    Hi Sue, and thanks for your kind comments. Which is the song of yours you referred to? Winter River? You want me to have a go at it?

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 13

    When you say write one together do you mean giving me musical ideas? Cause if someone asks me to do Bohemian Rhapsody style vocals with thunderous Neil Pert drum solos and Jaco Pastorius bass riffs and add a whole symphony bridge...well..... I'd say sorry but I have to polish my nails or something. But if you want a hand clap than I'M ALL YOURS.

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 13

    What...the...fook???? Well aaaaaaaaalllrighty then....I have some catching up to do with you. I'll do one and be on my way. I'm just off of work and HUNGRY.

  • @haim  Feb 12

    it's my pleasure.

  • @haim  Feb 12

    sue thank you for your pleasant comment on my skirmish song "River", I'm glad you like my voice, you are quite a writer I love the way you write. very talented person, I also saw some paintings on your facebook page, did you draw them?

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 12

    Thank you Sue for your kind comment. I'll be back soon.

  • @whispermouse  Feb 12

    Thanks for the comment on Winter River! Rain isn't my favorite either, but it sure fits the mood I'm in today.

  • @aprilm  Feb 11

    Thank you so much for your lovely comment on Winter River. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @adforperu  Feb 11

    Oh, just 14? Come on Sue, you've got some catching up to do...

  • @adforperu  Feb 11

    16! Christ, I've got some catching up to do, will get on it soon ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @metalfoot  Feb 11

    And thank you for all the amazing comments earlier today. Wow. You're too kind.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 11

    You are probably right. The melody of the first couple verses is bland, in retrospect, and needs either rewriting or harmonies to rescue it. Thanks for the input on "I saw your face". ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @max  Feb 11

    Wowzers, thank you so much for listening to them all AND leaving comments. That really means the world plus moon for me.
    Thank you light chaser!

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 8

    Oh c'mon it's not that bad. It has a happy ending.

  • @majordanby  Feb 8

    Thanks for listening to Be Good Be Else Be Gone. This is the first full song Iโ€™ve written in a longtime and it came from nowhere. I initially found the chords, whilst recording them for reference I ad libbed the words. Danโ€™s a fan of Radiohead, Iโ€™m not really so not sure what I was thinking. The muse obviously has his/her reasons. (Karl).

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 8

    Thank you very much for the comment on "Sushi Sunday"! Haha, I will sure not hold back on the sushi.

  • @theresaj  Feb 7


  • @metalfoot  Feb 6

    Glad you liked my FAWM song about FAWM. I'm enjoying reading your lyrics!

  • @shagpile Feb 6

    wow! you've been busy sue.. i need to get my butt into gear!

  • @johncrossman  Feb 6

    There is an occasionally invoked bit of nonsense I call the "Bruce Springsteen ruling" wherein if a guy from New Jersey can drawl like that, then all bets are off for the rest of us. ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks for the listens!

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 5

    Thanks for your kind comment on SIlence with his lies.

  • @majordanby  Feb 4

    Yep, itโ€™s a song about human kindness disguised as a love song. Glad you got the hidden meaning; there usually isnโ€™t one x

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 4

    You know it's funny because I feel more comfortable singing with an English accent. I feel like I sound better too. It flows naturally so it's second nature to me. This is going to sound crazy but when I talk to myself it's always in an English accent. Yup....I'm....psycho. I think I'm possessed by a bloodline, their all Eurpoean.

  • @max  Feb 4

    So glad you like it. Me? I'm not sure yet after working on it for 7 hours straight. But it feels good, I have to revisit it a few times the next couple of days the make sure the feeling was correct. But again thank you so much. It's been a real pleasure working with those lyrics.

  • @max  Feb 4

    Right then:
    Had loads of fun, thank you so much for the opportunity!

  • @expendablefriend  Feb 4

    Haha, you are so right. Please can you convince Mr. EF that making new music is more important than packing for a house move? ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @alphanerg Feb 4

    Good to see you back too!

  • @andygetch  Feb 4

    Awww, thank you Sue for the most kind commenting on two of my songs. Smiling at "warmup is taking longer" with 4 already on the board ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @pipewrench67  Feb 4

    Is that sarcasm, because if you read it with a sarcastic time, it's pretty funny ( total disclosure, I read everything with a sarcastic tone).

  • @max  Feb 3

    Thanks for dropping by and giving "Sweat 'n' Neat" a listen. The CBGB's compliment really makes my day. YES! Time to make me some coffee now, sit down, take a break from FAWM and let the sweetest comment so far sink in for a while. THANKS!

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 3

    Ah! That sounds awesome! Nina Hagen talks about sending her daughter to a school that focuses on teaching kids whatever they choose. So if they pick an instrument, they study music. If they pick up tools, they learn construction and design or repair etc.
    Just think what society would be like today if we all did what we love doing. But I guess someone has to do the dirty work right? Here come the robots.

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 3

    Blue man group as in the Vegas act or? I'm missing the correlation to my song. Sorry...I have wine in my system so thinking is out of the question.

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 3

    Hey you! You don't want to listen to mu stuff this year. It's.....scary.

  • @danvaillancourt  Jan 31

    Hi! *waves* ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @natrin Jan 31

    Hello! Have a great FAWM ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @tcelliott  Jan 26

    Heya! Thanks for dropping by. Here's to a great FAWM 2018.

  • @majordanby  Jan 24

    Ps. Iโ€™ll make a song out of your lyrics this year, I promise

  • @majordanby  Jan 24

    Haha! I totally forgot ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™ƒ x

  • @majordanby  Jan 23

    Hey Sue, Iโ€™m so glad you like that song, Iโ€™ve been thinking of reworking it. Here is a rough live demo on a loop pedal I did a few months ago. Canโ€™t wait to hear your stuff again this year x

  • @theresaj  Jan 23

    Then letโ€™s make this collab happen.

  • @cts  Jan 22

    Hi! You may not remember me, but I collaborated with you during my early FAWM years. I was super nervous, but I got through it. I wish you all the best this FAWM and congratulations on #8.

  • @johncrossman  Jan 2018

    Right now, somewhere just out of earshot, the music is assembling itself from stray parts.

  • @petemurphy Jan 2018

    Hello awesome Sue! Wishing you the best of times!

  • @adforperu  Jan 2018

    Hooray you're back! But... weren't on my watchlist :-O *oops*

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Jan 2018

    Woohoo! Can't wait to get this FAWM started! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @metalfoot  Jan 2018

    Hello! Good to see you again! I look forward to reading what you come up with...

  • @zecoop  Jan 2018

    Yayyyyyyyyy..... Glad to see you are back! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @andygetch  Jan 2018

    Hi Sue. I'm looking forward to more of your wondrous lyrics ๐Ÿ˜€
