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

Black Cab

This song was created for Game of Bands round 218 : "Saddest Song"

Lyrics:

I read the news off my cracked phone screen
The light yawned from the edges
Screaming what I’m dreading
I spent my last change on the taxi
The leather seats felt like her
On some party girl’s sofa


I am ready for a brand new day
That’s what this mourning coaxed me to say
I am a collage of fragmented parts
Oh to be
So riddled with scars


I smelt her scent strapped to my chest
Her perfume on the seatbelt
The last sensation I felt
Exploring daydreams I do best
Locked under the covers
Never to recover


I am ready for a brand new day
That’s what this mourning coaxed me to say
I am a collage of fragmented parts
Oh to be
Is not the way to be


I told her not to drive but I left her outside
I never knew she was one to be so full of pride
If I could have seen the girl from our prom limousine
Would be the centre of this tormented, mangled crash scene
I’d have offered her a seat in that hearse-black taxi
No length of detour would be so tragic for me
To save the misery of her dramatic entry
From her steering wheel through the cab’s shattered windscreen


I am ready for a brand new day
That’s what this mourning coaxed me to say
Too busy with my mind on her memory
Oh to see
What's happened to me
[Exit]
