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

Do Right By You

  • A Better Place

    By BFrost
    Chorus:
    Let's find a better place/
    For the kids to go home to/
    A better place/
    Find a world not ripped in two/
    A better place/
    Why can't they look up to you/
    Tell me why are they so confused/

    V1:
    Back in the day all you saw were nice faces/
    No sighs, no cries and no police chases/
    But time changes so please be patient/

  • Gone

    By Douglas Beardmore
    V1: a million memories and a whole lot of heartbreak/ is more than this heart can take/ I get drunk on the whiskey and wine/ just trying to get you off my mind/ but I can't

    V2: all the love that we made in these walls/ the past reflected in the pictures on these walls/ from back when your hand was in mine/ before our life together...

  • Blue Eyes of Summer

    Blue Eyes of Summer
    Lyrics by Doug Haberman

    Verse 1
    Summer day, temperature soaring
    You’re starting to feel the heat
    Say you need to cool down badly
    You rub yourself with ice for relief
    Your sweet eyes mirror the heavens
    Sweat beads on your smooth tan skin
    The ice hardly seems to cool you
    You smile and invite me in

  • Rope

    By Sakineh
    Learned to dive deep inside
    And remove unwanted rope
    He used to tie me up in knots
    While he was sellin’ dope
    You can have your apathy
    You can have your apathy

    Take your apathy
    And make it go viral
    Convince yourself it’s okay
    Convince yourself you’re okay

    Take your apathy
    And make it a story
    Convince ...

  • BODY WITHOUT BRAINS

    By Karl Ein
    GOIN WITH THE TIDE
    NO SENSE, NO PRIDE
    I CAN'T DECIDE

    WHERE'S THE FUN, ON THE RUN
    WITH A MAN WITH A GUN FOR WHAT HE'S DONE
    AND THE GUY ALWAYS HIGH
    MAKIN YOU CRY, WITH EVERY LIE
    NOT FORGETTING HOMEBOY,
    WHOSE GANG IS HIS JOY
    TREATS YOU LIKE A SEX TOY.
    USERS, BOOZERS,LOSERS, MEN FROM DRAINS
    IN BODIES WITHOUT BRAINS
    AND YET ...
