  • Songbay provides artists of all genres and experience levels a place to promote their work on a global scale. Their service and support is top notch. As a developing lyricist, Songbay provided me the opportunity to connect with the music community and license my first song.

  • Songbay provide a unique service. There is nothing else on the market that allows independent songwriters and lyricists to sell their work in this way. The Songbay team are very supportive or their artists. They regularly promote their users on Twitter and often retweet promotional tweets posted by artists. The Songbay team are also easy to contact and happy to help with any problems or questions via email or Twitter. I was also invited to write an article for Songbay's blog, which led to paid teaching work

    Verse 1
    Once I had two lovers at the same time,
    But now neither girl is still around.
    A month ago my life was totally crazy,
    Until my whole world came crashing down..

    I gave up one girl for the other,
    And the other girl did the same thing back to me.
    Now I'm wondering what could have been,
    With either with Tina or Lacey..

  • Sleep

    By Jimmie Valentin
    When the pills dont work I'm wide awake
    condemning everything
    Pinch and twist, my leg, my wrist
    But I just can’t feel a thing
    Numb from all emotion
    Numb from all the pain
    But the voices they are here to stay
    Can't make them go away

    Numb from all emotions
    Numb from all the pain
    My mind is playing tricks on me

  • Birds of a Feather

    By Naomi R
    We speak to each other in the tongues of angels
    Life’s little postcards you find on the street
    Through the eyes of a lover, in the glances of strangers
    These are the places where you and I meet.

    In the company of jugglers, musicians and fools
    Everyday people who land on their feet
    In those times of communion that br...

  • I'm all power

    By jerry freemann
    1 I swing around
    I’m off the ground
    I get so high
    Like I can fly

    2 I push and pump
    I pull and jump
    Like power girl
    I swing and twirl

    3 I’m full of might
    It feels so right
    I turn and play
    Feels so okay

    4 I reach the top
    And then I drop
    To touch the floor
    To jump and soar

    Pre chorus
    I hold the pole in ...
