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

Life Lessons Learned

This song was created for Game of Bands round 101 : "101 Courses"

Lyrics:

Lyrical Intro 0:12 - 0:24
Looks like the fun has just begun
She says welcome to one-oh-one
Diamond eyes and lashing tongue
Desk too small legs going numb

First Verse 0:24 - 0:48
Little hot today it doesn’t feel like Fall
But it’s the first day of class and I must answer the call
Don’t know what’s waiting for me in that far-a-way room
On the other side of campus in class 101, Doom
Step into the doorway of this un-hallowed hall
Feels more like a gallows try to run but I stall
They told me this semester was supposed to be Hell
Handed me a syllabus I didn’t read too well

Instrumental 0:48 - 1:00

Pre Chorus 1:00 - 1:24

Well I’m damned if I do
And I’m damned if I don’t
and I'm damned if she’ll have me
Even more so if she won't
Well I’m damned if I do
And I’m damned if I don’t
and I'm damned if she’ll have me
Even more so if she won't

Second Verse 1:24 - 1:48

My radio’s been stuck on “Hot for Teacher”
But I’m sitting in the back I’d never reach her
She must have been an angel in the past
But her being here means that she fell too fast
I'm stuck here where the time will never pass
Where everyday’s the first day of my class
And my life is just a test I’m bound to fail
When all I study is my teachers swishing tail
1:48 - 2:12 Pre Chorus

Well I’m damned if I do
And I’m damned if I don’t
and I'm damned if she’ll have me
Even more so if she won't
Well I’m damned if I do
And I’m damned if I don’t
and I'm damned if she’ll have me
Even more so if she won't

Chorus 2:12 - 2:36

And I don’t wanna be another red mark in your book
A correction or a fix or a condescending look
Lord knows I lost my soul, now I think I've lost my heart
My staring eyes transfixed as her mouth begins to part
Her lips a brilliant white and her teeth a pearly red
What have I got to lose when I am already dead

Instrumental 2:36 - 2:48

Lyrical Intro Reprise 2:48 - 3:00

Looks like the fun has just begun
She says welcome to one-oh-one
Diamond eyes and lashing tongue
Desk too small legs going numb

Pre Chorus 3:00 - 3:24

Well I’m damned if I do
And I’m damned if I don’t
and I'm damned if she’ll have me
Even more so if she won't
Well I’m damned if I do
And I’m damned if I don’t
and I'm damned if she’ll have me
Even more so if she won't

Chorus 3:24 - 3:48

And I don’t wanna be another red mark in your book
A correction or a fix or a condescending look
Lord knows I lost my soul, now I think I've lost my heart
My staring eyes transfixed as her mouth begins to part
Her lips a brilliant white and her teeth a pearly red
What have I got to lose when I am already dead

Solo 3:48 - 4:36

Outro 4:36 - 4:46
What have I got to lose when I am already dead
What have I got to lose when I am already dead
[Exit]
