Back for a 4th year - i didn’t hit 14 songs last year so feeling extra motivated to hit the mark this year!
For once i have actually been writing between FAWMs. Hoping that’s a sign of good things to come and not me peaking too early. I still haven’t learnt to play my keyboard (but I have had 2 years of looking at it and dreaming of stardom so I wouldn’t describe it as a mistake 😉). I do feel like I’ve made some minor improvements in my lyric writing technique though - just started writing lyrics out the blue so now trying to learn some theory to make it easier to put them to music. Constructive feedback is appreciated and welcome 😀
I often write from other people's perspectives as well as my own, so if I come out with an eclectic mix of wackiness, that’s why - I’m not just livin’ a very very wild lifestyle!
If you like any of my lyrics and want to put them to music - hit me up. I’m not precious about you changing lyrics to make it work. One of my favourite parts of FAWM is the collabs I’ve done over the years. There’s nothing better than hearing your ideas flourish into a full song in the hands of talented FAWMers. Making new friends along the way is also not too bad either ha!
Happy FAWM 2020 everyone 🥳

Wow lots of awesome lyrics here! What a great Fawm you had! Thx for the interaction
Ha, don’t give him ideas Jordan! He has enough bloody ideas 😝
Hahahahaha god dam fictitious garden in the bloody East! 😂
I'm on the top of the list for something as filthy as hell? Gee...thanks?
....actually I'm blushing. Compliments embarrass me.
Hahahah, fantastic, I never heard the Lana Del Ray one! I think it is a legit line for us ALL to get on board with 😁
Thank you for the feedback on “Wooden Spoon”! I just finished playing all three of our collabs back to back. They are so much fun to sing!!!
I am wondering when you and I are going to make an album together? Wouldn’t that be a powerful album? I need to publish my first solo album first, though, so we have a FAWM or two to go! I think you, Elizabeth and Doug are my all-time favorite collaborators. Some of my favorite FAWM songs have come from the lyrics of y’all.
Your lyrics are LIT, glad u dig it! I always get scared putting other people’s words to music! 😁🔥 🔥🔥
Sure thing! It was fun. Sorry if it didn't end up as rock as you would have liked; I ended up hearing something more avant garde
I just finished the Wandermust collab; I hope you enjoy. Let me know if you want to be credited differently in the liner notes for the lyrics.
Thank you BTW. Let’s do it again sometime.
Hehehehhe. I emailed u some questionzzzzz
That crackle was me overdriving the mike. :-O
Erm, also I just saw you have 50 million new songs I need to catch up with arghhhh. I got a to do list longer than my penis! No way I’m wrapping all this shit up before fawm ends 😭
I am working on our filthy tune😁 I was meant to be taking a break tonight but I just listened to what I got so far and now I’m hard at it 😂. send help!
Honestly, I don’t think you’ve changed direction so much as letting creativity lead you into exploring various types of connection. And honestly, truth telling and connection are Integral parts of story telling and song writing. So follow your muse and keep crafting songs: love songs, nerdy songs, angry songs. Trust your feelings and insert the rhythm of life into them and you’ll succeed.
Hey Jorh, thanks for the comment on the song Bobby Is A Good Picker I appreciate it.
Thanks for commenting on my collab song "Who We Really Are", I appreciate it!
No worries; I'm pretty slow this year, so I am just doing what I can. Were you imagining Wandermust as something heavy guitar-driven? I think I could see that. I just googled Grimes; so something synth-pop-esque? That could be fun.
You're on a tear this year! Congrats on the win. And thanks for your kind comments on "I Have a Question." My voice is in its best shape in years, thanks to getting past some sinus problems, knock on wood. Cheers.
I was actually looking at doing "What do you do?", but I'll take a look at Wanderlust as well; I haven't heard what I want to do on any of them yet in my head, so I've been mulling the lyrics over.
Thanks for your comment on my song. It means alot!! I see you are getting to it with these lyrics. Nice job!
Well now, I didn't realize you had already crossed the 14 finish line. Congratulations and thank you for the comment on Read Me.
Thank you for listening! I appreciate your comment on Naughty.❤️😎
Thank you very much for your incredible comment on “Oh My Darling” . It’s extremely encouraging. Im grateful that you listened and I’m happy that you like it!
Thanks for the kind words about "Come with Me"
Thanks! I’ll get started! 😀
Sure thing! Is there any lyric you'd prefer I use? My only request is I'd rather not swear so I can play the final song for my kiddos.
Jorh, Thank you for your sweet comments. They really warmed me up inside.
Thanks for the comment!
Congrats on already being so close to the 14 goal! Looks like the writes between wasn't an early peak after all! I'm pleased that I started writing more in-between, though very little in fact. Hey, something is something!
Thanks for commenting on "Little House Beside the Sea." The music turned out so well, glad you enjoyed it.
I would like to thank you very, very much for your wonderful and that profound comment!
Hi! Thank you so much for your insightful comments on ‘Selkie’ and the outro especially. I really didn’t have that as my aim while writing, but when I got to the last verse, and wanting the music to die down and return to the starting level, I thought to try it, and the new meaning dawned on me too. I just thank the muse for that perfect fit!
Thanks a lot for your lovely comment!
Shot you an e-mail with what I made with your lyrics!
I am so honored that you recommended one of my songs....I definitely feel that I messed it up a bit at the end, but I’m not focusing on perfect recordings this month. I’m glad you could hear past that.
Hey, just saw your comment. Never done one, but I'm definitely willing to try a collab. I'll happily read your lyrics. My e-mail is freywaelput at hotmail dot com 😀
Hi, thanks for your comment on my profile! This week has been super busy, but I'm trying to make time for FAWM 😀 can't wait to check out your tunes this year
I added my recording of “Everywhere and Nowhere”.
Our song is up!!! Have a listen.
Thanks for your feedback on “Everywhere and Nowhere”.
As for collaboration, I am honored. Yay! Happy to take a look at the lyric, and to have your trust in my ability to tweak it. You write such beautiful poetry and your lyrics are some of my favorite songs to sing. You can send it to colgoo at me dot com.
Thanks for your encouragement on my song - Rogue trampolinin! Happy creating to you!
Hey, thank you so much for your comments on "What If We Are All Alone" and I really love your insights into the backing vocals. Cheers 😀
Thank you for the thoughtful words on my song! I'm glad that I could jiu-jitsu my sniffles into part of my song. I love what you said about using the tools that are available - anything can be music if I just shift my perspective a little bit 😀
Thank you so much for your lovely feedback on the rivers run dry. It was a wonderful collaboration. Happy Fawming!
Nice, I didn’t catch your second one yet! Glad you like Fresh Start! Did I do the right thing with posting? Like it’s showing you’ve done 3 songs now.. shouldn’t that be only two? I posted it and tagged you as collab.. how else could I have done it so as not to mess up your numbers??
Hi thanks for the comment on "Without You" glad it worked for you
Thanks for your comment on my "Somewhere" - I left it vague as to whether she needed the gun to give UJ what he deserved or protect herself from anyone trying to take her back. Or whether she planned to use it to survive or simply needed it for protection (the setting being the US). 😉
Thanks for your really nice comments on The Rivers Run Dry! Happy FAWMing!
Thank you for the great comment! 😀
Maybe we could look at a collab .
Cheers for your comments on Rain matey . And I see you are flying already , and your from sheff 😵. Superb . Although I from the peaks I count myself as a sheffielder ..... ish
Thanks so much for your lovely comment on “Jupiter is Rising in the Morning”! 😊 I really appreciate it. Hope you have a great FAWM!
Ya, fka twigs proved a step too far so I’ve gone midway and banged it out on the guitar but through a pedal on garage band. Just need chords for the bridge and then I will record. The disordered guitar also works at hiding my sketchy voice, I was shouting too loudly at a gig last night forgetting I was gonna be singing for the next month-FOOLISH😂
Shall I email you the track before I post the collab? I feel like you gave me your email address but I lost it, doh! Jorh@jorh.com??
Ooh glad you said yes as the verses popped right out too 😁 Don’t know whether to keep it on guitar or try and fka twig it up a bit and play with garage band. But that means remembering how to use garage band. Hmmmmmmmm. Also I have a hoarse voice from today so am painfully missing the chorus I wrote HAHAHAHA it’s all fun and games isn’t it. I may have to leave til another day to record! Hmmm I just can’t imagine where a third season would go. We can’t have ANOTHER killer get involved? I like it as a 2 piece but will obvs five back in if they go for a third.
Hi, thanks for taking a look at my dream song!
Is it okay that I write some kind of a tune, add "vocal" melody on it and you write lyrics with the help of that "reference melody"? Looking forward for some nice pairing with You!
Hey, we’ve been paired up in random collabs. Checked out some of your tracks on sound cloud - the production is amazing, really liked the tracks breathin’ and lullaby. Not sure how you’d prefer to do this - if you want me to write lyrics to a particular theme you like or keeping an eye on my lyrics and see which you fancy? Or something else?
Looks forward to collabing 😀
Hey Jorh, so good to hear from you! I am happy to meet again. Yes, I love our collaboration song "I Am Here", though I hope I can make a better recording someday. I look very much forward to continue working with you on new songs in 2020.
Okay! I am in....we’ll see what I come up with for our collaboration this year! Your lyrics are some of my favorite to sing!
Of course! Together again, the sequel! Happy FAWM!
Yes, really enjoying it so far! 😀 Ah I tried sex education last year when it first landed (on sky I think) cos I love Gillian Anderson but I abandoned after a couple of episodes actually! Not quite as offbeat as eotfw is it? Not from what I remember..
Yasssss! Holla! Will keep my eyes peeled for your lyricz! You seen season 2 Eotfuckingw? I am mid-way!
See u in Feb
Are you in?
