Chris,

I'm hearing hints of the Beatles (don't remember the title). We have several excellent lyricists frequenting these forums. Maybe one of them will jump in and help you.

A question that they will have is; what genre are you shooting for? I hear potential in several genres. Pin that down first.

Our dear Joanne Wilson-Cooper is expert in Folk and Country genres; Floyd Jane is a very successful Nashville Country writer, David Snyder writes Country and Pop, Josie (aka Sundance) is a Country/Pop lyricist extraordinaire, etc. There are great writers aboard in every genre.

I happen to know that Joanne Cooper stays very busy with her music but she is kind and helpful to everyone. Let's hope that she or others will throw you a lifeline.

And welcome aboard!

Nice work, Christian. This tune flows tremendously well. I'm hoping someone can pair some vocals to this! The tune definitely inspired some melodies for me. I thought the mix job was top notch too - thanks for sharing smile


Cheers,

Christian,
I don't/can't sing but these lines popped into my head as I listened to the keyboard melody.

Words, they’re just words
But they show the workings of my mind
Ghosts, they’re just ghosts
They’re the only memories I can find

Nothing else makes sense
Just memories I can rewind

Thoughts, they’re just thoughts
But they make me feel I’m going blind
Play, through the day
To this repetition I’m resigned

Nothing else makes sense
The world inside is defined

Words, not just words
They describe the contents of my mind
Ghosts, not just ghosts
They’re the only loves that I could find

Nothing else makes sense
My ghosts keep all that we find


Cheers

Christian,
nice tune. I like pop motif with harder instrumentals. Easy listen, yet rocky. Nicely mixed too.

Ray caught it just right smile Would love to try to sing it!

Best regards,
Misha.

Hi rayc,
Thank you for taking the time to write these lyrics.
Living in the past is a good theme for this music.
Have you an idea for the title of this song ? Perhaps " Words and ghosts "......Christian

Hi Christian,

another nice tune of yours. Like Misha wrote: a nice mix of easy-listening and a rocking touch. Very enjoyable and to me it's a good listen even without vocals. But I'm sure one of the guys will crown it with good lyrivs and great singing.

Cheers,

Stefan

Hi Chris ...

Love the music! It has attitude but not too edgy. Hoper someone helps you out with lyrics and vocal.

Best to you ...

Alan

Here's the song " Words and ghosts ".

https://soundcloud.com/christian-devienne/words-and-ghosts

Thanks very much to Ray and Misha for their collaboration !

Singing : Misha
Lyrics and Mix : Ray Cochrane
Music : Christian Devienne

Words, they’re just words
But they show the workings of my mind
Ghosts, they’re just ghosts
They’re the only memories I can find
Nothing else makes sense
Just memories I can rewind
Thoughts, they’re just thoughts
But they make me feel I’m going blind
Play, through the day
To this repetition I’m resigned
Nothing else makes sense
The world inside is defined
Words, not just words
They describe the contents of my mind
Ghosts, not just ghosts
They’re the only loves that I could find
Nothing else makes sense
My ghosts keep all that we find

A very nice collaboration...
Congratulations to both of you!
Why not make a new post titled "Words and Ghosts" so other users can more easily find your song & comment...
