  • 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

  • Gypsy heart in my chest

    By jerry freemann
    1 Surrounded by high walls again
    I’m looking for a door
    If it is locked a window then
    Or holes there in the floor

    2 I’m in the realm that is not mine
    Cause there’s no freedom here
    All people round me feel just fine
    But I am filled with fear


    3 Surrounded by a wall once more
    Of minds shaped by the laws
    I try to fl...

  • Praise the Divine Word Made Flesh

    By Noah Hirsch
    The holy, sinless, spotless Son of God was born of a virgin, born of a sinful woman tainted by the Fall.
    Praise the Divine Word made flesh! Jesus is Yahweh-incarnate.
    The sinless Son of God was born of a sinful woman to redeem a people for Himself.
    Praise the Divine Word made flesh! Jesus is Yahweh-incarnate.
    The Word was made fl...

  • Shamefaced

    By Jb
    Shamefaced & bold, looking back at me,
    speaking lies told forward I may not actually believe.
    Poised & thoughtful, not a blink of past remorse,
    an arduous exercise this trick of mind in force.
    A cycle of deception, spinning it's mythical lore,
    will reality begin to govern and wrest back control.

    Shamefaced I am
    but not wit...

  • "The Hungry side of Seventeen"

    By Thomas Brain
    "The Hungry Side of Seventeen"

    a young beauty I have never seen
    poster on the wall calls out your name
    they all look different but all the same

    the hungry side of seventeen
    such beauty I have never seen

    her real beauty came from within
    while gently holding her trembling hand
    then the rainbow begins to spin


    the hung...
