Stephen Wordsmith drinking game:
1. Take 1 shot every time I mention 'The context of silence'
2. Call ambulance.
- My lyrics should not be assumed to be exclusive (I've had too many excellent multiple takes). However, if you are not the first to lay claim to a lyric, I recommend checking with the other FAWMer(s) that they're OK with you jumping on board. Similarly, you can quietly ask me if you want to be the only one to do a demo for a song, and I will probably grant you that.
Constructive criticism is welcome; good faith is assumed and expected.
Preferred pronoun: 'you'. I'd rather be talked to than about.

I'm excited. The track is definitely not what I usually do, but your wordsmithing has once again gotten me out of a musical funk, and I should have the rest finished within a day or two. Thank you my friend!
Thank you. Now, how can I persuade my wife to come out with that?
"through glass" is tricky. Can I hold it till I depart? (20th) I think I can get there. It's that forward/reverse/mirror-image of the first and last stanzas that're the trick.
Upon reflection, "weary but warm" may be the kindest, truest compliment I've ever received. Thank you.
Thanks very much for the kind words and the recommendation! I'm glad you appreciated what I was trying to do lyrically.
Thank you, Stephen.
I just assumed that "ye nighties" was a New Zealand insult
Just sent you an email re- parallel
Constantly refreshing the "comments" page is not arrogance, it's merely obsessive-compulsive FAWM behaviour--that is, the centre of the FAWM bell-curve and so wholly normal. I'll now stuff the song into my dunnage and scurry off with it, to contemplate and savour in the dark recesses of my ...dark recesses.
Ha! he's back. I puts me hand up for Through Glass....see comments!
How about it? Nobody sleeps in that late on Fawmuary 1st.
Welcome back friend!
Thanks for the comment. It's nice to see some other New Zealanders here.
Mr Wordsmith! Great to hear from you. Hope we all have the big fun!
Thanks so much for the kind words about my track from FAWMpilation 3.
Stephen, I would be honoured to put one of your lyrics to a song !! I'm a little scattered during FAWM so please, just give me a gentle reminder when you're ready with something. Looking forward to it !
Cheers, and a have a great FAWM !!
Hi Stephen, have a great FAWM.
Whether written, sung or sneezed,
the words you smith
ourselves will please.
I love how you are boldly striking against the "probate" in your FAWM profile photo by posting in the FAWMerick thread. No worries, mate, your secret's safe with me...
Tēnā koe, me old mucker.
BTW, if you're wondering why the royalties haven't been pouring in for Welcome Home, it's because when I last checked, my album had earned the grand total of £1.83!
Wield that pen against the powers of the blank page!
I wish to welcome you to another fine year of FAWMing, good sir, and I wish to register myself as one who would, perchance, like to have the pleasure of a collaboration, should the opportunity present itself.
Waves! Hello friend.
