Reality - Lyrics

Post by soular » Thu Jun 01, 2017 10:51 pm

This is a song I wrote some years ago and left unsung for long.
Now it's come back and is lingering in my head. (This may be a repost.)

---

I hear people say
Everything's gonna be alright

I hear people say
Everything's going wrong

I hear people say
Let it be, time will tell

I hear people say
Not a word, just sing your song

Everybody is dreaming
Wake up and live your dream

Some people say
You'd better do this and that

Some people say
You'd better not do this and that

Some people say
Do what you've got to do, yeah

Some people say
Not a word, just sing your song

Everybody is dreaming
Wake up and live your dream

Do what you've got to do
Let it be, time will tell

Here below's a demo recorded a long ago.

Thanks much, Heinz. I'll sing it and see if it flows naturally.
I'd rather just let Nature sing and just listen though.
But still, something inside moves me to sing.

For whom does the bird sing?
Does he sing for you?
Does he sing for a lost love?
No, he sings his song because
it is a part of who he is.
Sing... sing like the bird
because you are who you are.

:hello:
