Favourite personal lyric this FAWM

    (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.
    @stephenwordsmith Yessssssss

    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

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 12

    @scottlake that's really poignant...
    @stephenwordsmith hell yeah!
    @robynmackenzie those words absolutely paint a picture...

    The bridge was under water
    When I made my midnight run
    I crossed the Hudson River
    with a geiger counter and a gun


  • @scottlake Feb 13

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

  • @yam655 Feb 13

    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! 😉

  • @scottlake Feb 13

    @yam655 I just looked at your songs and the title "Wrinkled Conversation" stands out quite well I would say. That could go all kinds of directions besides your idea of it being a dull or old conversation.

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 13

    @billwhite51 ooh, that makes me shudder!
    @yam655 wrinkled conversation is cool!
    @scottlake kudos for the support 😊

  • @alanonymous Feb 13

    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
    So uncertain
    I’m saying if not when

  • @frenchcricket  Feb 13

    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

  • @yam655 Feb 13

    @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.

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 14

    @alanonymous also, sing/[rhym]ing! 😊
    @frenchcricket ooh, intriguing...

  • @ustaknow Feb 14

    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 😉 😀 ...




    "Cagey 12 Bars of Bars"

    @ustaknow 👏🏼

  • @tawalker Feb 15

    How long were you here?
    A frame or maybe two
    In wide eternity
    Painstakingly restored
    How you were always meant to be


  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 15

    @tawalker lovely...

    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!"
