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

Not Quite Living (The Ghost of Ian Curtis)

This song was created for Game of Bands round 54 : "Comeback From The Grave"

Lyrics:

Kept the spirit, lost the feeling
Torn apart by love and more
Kicking downward from the ceiling
Retreating from an inner war
A change of scene with some regrets
Telling myself it's for the best
The shouting's done, procession moves on
Left dead but not quite gone

Kept the spirit, feels like dreaming
Everything just blurs like mist
Used to write about this feeling
Eyes whispering ?I still exist?
The shouting's done, procession's gone
But I'm still left here with these songs
They keep calling me, not quite gone
Nothing to do but carry on

Thought I'd fade but here I stay
Still watching the leaves fall before the rain
Planning the reunion tour
There's so much more worth not quite living for

Used to say ?Take these dreams away?
But here they stay, refuse to fade
Routine bites hard but ambition won't go
The melodies and words still flow
Years pass in a drifting unlife
But all this time the songs won?t die
Pen ready in this ghostly hand
Time to reunite the band

Thought I'd fade but here I stay
Still watching the leaves fall before the rain
Planning the reunion tour
There's so much more worth not quite dying for
[Exit]
