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

Highlight Reel

This song was created for Game of Bands round 199 : "Public Service Announcement"

Lyrics:

Verse 1:

On the bed at 1 am
Or 3, who cares these days
The world's below your fingertips
Just a few clicks away

a world of bright lights
Where everyone's happy and everything's fun
Where every day's a party and no-one is stuck in their room
You're the only one

Chorus:

Look at all the awesome stuff
everyone's up to now
So why're you home alone this night
did no-one think to take you out?

Behind each picture there's a story you can't see
Don't lose your mind competing with a highlight reel

Bridge:

the spark in your eye's gone out
except when you're looking down
it flashes then quickly dies

why won't you talk to me with the lights out?
afraid of the dark?
or just used to seeing everything?

Verse 2:
Look at all the fun we're having
On a montage of the night
It'll surely melt their hearts
hope it gets, like, eighty-five

2 hours later, up and counting
The numbers slowed and finally stopped
It's 20 less than last time
I should have got a better shot

Chorus:

Look at all the awesome stuff
that we are up to now
Tomorrow I'll be home alone
And wonder just why no-one's called

Behind each picture there's a story you can't see
Don't lose your mind competing with a highlight reel

Go on, live your life and don't let others lead the way
Don't rate all things in numbers and put the phone away
Today
[Exit]
