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

No Hit Wonder

This song was created for Game of Bands round 148 : "Portray a Moment in Life"

Lyrics:

No Hit Wonder

Verse 1

I could already picture crowds cheering
When I learned my first four chords
Butchered too many half-leaned classics
After school with some kids next door

Any day now and we’ll make the big leagues
In my head we were halfway there
Spent hours sketching album covers
Before we even had a song to share

Chorus

Not quite almost famous
Not quite even popular
Not quite underrated
But damn was it fun

Not quite almost famous
Where did the years run

Verse 2

Had to sell off the cabs and pedals
But kept the old epiphone
Unwinding with half-learned classics
Playing to my kid at home

He’ll crawl over to where I’m sitting
And swipe at the strings to play
Babbling along to the words I’m signing
The guitar will be his some day

Chorus

Not quite almost famous
Not quite even popular
Not quite underrated
But damn was it fun

Not quite almost famous
But look how far we’ve come
[Exit]
