Favourite personal lyric this FAWM
@emkaydeebee Feb 12
(Not the same as the favorite lyric ever written by anyone post!)
What’s your favourite lyric you’ve found yourself writing this fawm, and why do you love it so? Can be anything up to four lines I reckon...
Mine was accidental, writing:
‘Low.... So Low!’
on a song about feeling alone... So Low sounds like Solo! Only released it days after finishing the song!
How about you?...

“This our place where we belong, here upon the sea.
Hand to oar, sail to mast, cast the net for fish to feed.”
Last Easter I listened to a sermon that reflected upon the time after Jesus’ disciples abandoned him and the fishermen amongst them returned quickly to their occupation.

I like this one because it's self-demonstrating. It's from a song about stifling my inner critic, and I wrote it, for once, without meditating on it forever:
I took my inner critic
Down to consciousness's stream
I pushed the bastard in
And watched him drown

@emkaydeebee That's some nice wordplay there!
@scottlake Absolutely beautiful.
My personal fave is from this one: https://fawm.org/songs/102249/
As I sat in the silence
The shining air caressed my face
I can still hear the echoes
Of the wild winter sunlight
I could see for miles into the earth
In the flickering morning

These are all great. Never let anyone tell you that you have no way with words.

Goodness, this makes me a little sad. I have some songs I like so far, but nothing with tight lyrics that stands out.
I guess I'll have to write some more songs! 😉

I like this one and it’s fun to sing because it has a lot of internal rhyming:
And if you see me
On the street
It’s not a given
That we’ll meet again
In this world
I’m saying if not when

It's not posted yet because I'm waiting on a collab partner, but probably:
A futile wind on a leafless street / The wretched sounds of flyers gathering / In the city of the brittle bone

@scottlake It's about conversations that start, but in an effort to avoid finishing the conversation, the relationship suffers. A dull conversation is dead before it is even over. My "wrinkled conversations" end marriages.
@emkaydeebee Yeah, I like it, but some lyrics are really a notch above. It's really no big deal, I just need to sit down and make some more songs.

So far, and came to mind immediately upon seeing this great thread title:
When finding a life to love, one to give
When mining through the strife, to the fizz
We all have channels, shafts and lifts to our digs
Keep moving on, keep wondering on, keep doing
"No Writing On the Wall"

Oh, and 😉 😀 ...

Gangster Rap song where a child disses the monster under his bed:
"Why are you here? To eat at my flesh?
This shit is too good for you, certified fresh!"
