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

When Clouds Become Mountains and Mountains Become Clouds

This song was created for Game of Bands round 248 : "Odd Times And No Rhymes VI"

Lyrics:

[Verse]

The lines have been drawn quietly
I see my words drift away again
My heart slows down to this bitter halt
And it starts to get shallow

Breath in to go for a witty line
But it gets lost, and then it’s too late
My eyes staring through my empty drink
Looks like I’m boring myself again


[Pre-Chorus]
Gotta say something
Or they won’t get to know you
Keep your low profile
You’re the death of the party

[Chorus]
Another wasted chance
This night will never start
They know that I am here
Barely more than welcome
When my turn seems to rise
I keep on drawing blanks
I’m nodding through it all
Until everyone’s gone

[Verse 2]
By now I was supposed to have plans
Or dozens of stories to tell
It's like I missed out on everything
So who would want to listen to me ?

I'm looking for a simple question
That is going to save my whole night
And maybe I won't fumble for it
Maybe I will look like I belong


[Pre-Chorus 2]
Why can’t you take the lead ?
You’re not just a quiet guy
Oh please just don’t look dumb
One lame choice and you’ll fade

[Bridge]
(spoken) Nobody has a strong feeling about me
(spoken) The worse thing is... I kinda like it that way
And I wonder
Will they notice ?

[Chorus]
Another wasted chance
This night will never start
They know that I am here
Barely more than welcome
When my turn seems to rise
I keep on drawing blanks
I’m nodding through it all
Until everyone’s gone
Until everyone’s gone
Until everyone’s gone...
[Exit]
