Song: Kindred Souls

My first attempt at making song lyrics. The nature of lyrics themselves feel different from poetry because each stanza needs a specific rhythm. Furthermore, I’m not a musician and therefore, I don’t have an original melody that serves as a “starting point” for lyric-composing. If that makes sense. Okay, then. *Cracks knuckles* It’ll just be me and my expertise, then. And some model lyrics to take inspiration from.

*****

Seeking out the one this time

You can’t get any better

I reach to you in my mind

You’re my personal love letter.

*

Any window pane

Is a box of gloom

Can’t you see that I’m looking

At a world of lonely doom?

*

No, you can’t get any better

*

Seek me out,

Kindred souls

Find me now,

‘Cause I’m hurting, hurting, hurting…

I don’t want to meddle

Just tell me now:

Can you find me yet?

*

You, embedded with charisma

A grace, a warmth: you’re my kind

I look from a distance, I shy

Am I the kindred soul you seek and find?

*

You’re no angel, it’s true

But still, I can’t get rid of the thoughts for you

If you exist…

Can you get any better?

*

No, you can’t get any better

*

[Refrain]

Seek me out

Kindred souls

Find me now

‘Cause I’m hurting, hurting, hurting…

I don’t want to meddle

Just tell me now:

Can you find me yet?

A’right, what do you think?

Also, I looked at sample song lyrics. Turns out that unlike poems, they don’t have compunction that indicates pauses between the lines (periods, commas). Just food for thought.
