Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Round the Corner

This song was created for Game of Bands round 135 : " Odd Times and No Rhymes IV"

Lyrics:

As I round the corner, down the alley. A lingering smell of cigarette smoke sits above the petrichor. The light of a street lamp reflected in the puddles at my feet.

Three figures at a doorway, a woman with short hair holds the attention of two men. Her gaze commanding, her shoulders hang relaxed. The sound of high hats and bass punctuate her waning attention.

The muffled beat billows on as listlessly as the smoke from her cigarette.

I pass them, exchanging a glance as I enter the bar. My senses peaked, heightened. Spilt drinks and mildew. A crash of cymbals.

The muffled beat billows on as listlessly as the smoke from her cigarette.
[Exit]
