Lyric writing is a spontaneous act, for me anyway. Often I do not go back and edit the lyrics because how I felt when I wrote them might be totally different to how I'm feeling now. But I am so glad I didn't, because now I can look back and read exactly how I felt about a particular situation. So of course these lyrics are rough versions of whatever they will become. But as I've said before, I want to get my message out to the world and I can't think of a better way than through lyrics.
Lyrics are all relative. It is up to your interpretation. What a song means to you, is all to do with the situation you find yourself in at the moment of hearing it. For example, in 'I Hope You Find It' by Miley Cyrus, one particular note in the chorus reminds me of something sad, so although it always makes me cry, I love the song. Lyrics tend to be universal, like they can happen to anyone. And obviously if you've been through a similiar situation you automatically think it's 'your song'. That is why I like writing lyrics so mmuch. Because they won't mean the same to everyone and hopefully mine are relatable. 

Anyway, these lyrics are based on coming out a show and the ferociousnessof it being the end. You know what I mean, not disappointment necessarily but when it's been so good that you can't quite believe it's over. See what you think and please do leave your response to the lyrics and what I have said, whether  you agree or disagree or are on the fence about it. Thank you!

It's called:

In the silence that follows after the band
You begin to clap your hands
Out of pure never-ending adrenalin
Maybe it was you who caught his eye endlessly hoping
At the end of the show
You get taken so quick back to the car
You’ll never know
If he is wondering where you are

Because it’s one night
One chance
One feeling so right
One last dance
Because it’s the strength
Of how she felt
Weighed up against
How his eyes made you melt

In the shadows when the stage has been forgotten
Baby you just go on hoping
That you were the one who made him stop and think
Although in your eyes tears are on the brink
At the end of the day
You know it’s a hopeless dream
A mindless game
Thinking that it’s all because of me
(Repeat Chorus)
Why do you feel so incomplete?
When he walks away from you
That has to mean something you hope
Why do you feel loneliness closing in?
When he leaves you in the emptiness where you begin
Hoping and praying you’ll see his face again
(Repeat Chorus).
