It's written in the stars

Verse One
The love you gave was poison laced
Steel and stone in a heart displaced
But what does it matter now?
It’s all in the past

Verse Two
The words you spoke were always lies
Crocodile tears in those crying eyes
But what does it matter now?
It’s all in the past

Bridge
The heart bleeding was never yours
Always my anguish in our looking-glass wars
If only I knew what I know now
I’d have walked on by

Chorus
It’s like the land of the blind
I wanted to believe
the illusion
That you were the man in my mind

Verse Three
You swore blind you’d never hurt me
Promised the earth, sun and sea
But you always say less than you mean
And lies come naturally

Verse Four
I’ll never get why you did this
You deceived from that first kiss
But you’re a master of pretence
And lies come naturally

Bridge
The heart bleeding was never yours
Always my anguish in our looking-glass wars
If only I knew what I know now
I’d have walked on by

Chorus
It’s like the land of the blind
I wanted to believe
the illusion
That you were the man in my mind

Climax
I’ve always believed in happy endings
Fool that I am, I’ll keep pretending
But I know now you don’t care now
For me

The Land Of the Blind

The Land Of the Blind

Verse One
We exist under the stars
Whirling in the dark
Universe
All set to collide
With the red planet Mars

Chorus Part One
Fool, thinking this love can be controlled
When there isn’t a chance
Our love won’t dissolve like rock-salt

Verse Two
We live beneath the waves
Dissolving in the deep
Oceania
Yet to understand
These ripples on our graves

Chorus Part One
Fool, thinking this love can be controlled
When there isn’t a chance
Our love won’t dissolve like rock-salt

Chorus Part Two
Fool, thinking this love can be controlled
When the moon and tides are one
And our love burns brighter than the sun

Climax
But last night was the last night
You’ll ever hear me say
That we had something beautiful
To bring to this long day
If you do not believe it
Then why should I remain?

Chorus Part One
Fool, thinking this love can be controlled
When there isn’t a chance
Our love won’t dissolve like rock-salt

Chorus Part Two
Fool, thinking this love can be controlled
When the moon and tides are one
And our love burns brighter than the sun

Ending
We live beneath the waves
Dissolving in the deep
Oceania
All set to collide
With the difference in the tides

And there isn’t a chance
For a love that dissolves like rock-salt

Rocksalt

Verse One
You’re the sunbeam skipping here and there about a room
You’re gossamer rifts of moon, a supernova, diamond stars
You’re the firefly we chase on summer nights
That beautiful girl who orbits the white satellites

Pre-Chorus
That sunny smile, little cost in the giving
Like morning light, makes my day worth living

Chorus
You are my love, you are my love
Perfect girl, you are my love

Verse Two
You’re the dolphin dancing in the bow wave of a ship
You’re star grains of aurora, Mary Poppins, hide and seek
You’re the rainbows found in beat-up spaces
The girl I’d follow to one million places

Pre-Chorus
That sunny smile, little cost in the giving
Like morning light, makes my day worth living

Chorus
You are my love, you are my love
Perfect girl, you are my love

Bridge
There’s light in my world
When you’re in the world
There’s sun in my life
When you’re in my life
Perfect girl

Chorus
You are my love, you are my love
Perfect girl, you are my love

You’re like gazing at a distant star
Perfect girl, please don’t fail me from afar

About Me

Bio

A published writer, I love that words have the power to comfort, heal and inspire. Writing lyrics gives me the opportunity to use storytelling, structure, rhythm, and rhyme to create something memorable. So, if you’re a talented, serious songwriter who struggles with words and are looking for your ‘Bernie Taupin’, then please reach out, as I’d love to hear from you.

CV/History

Most of the time, I am a UK based writer and photographer specializing in freelance editorial services including features and news writing, copy-writing, and proofreading. I have contributed to many publications, including The Telegraph, Guardian, LandScape, Coast, Conde Nast Traveller, Great British Food, Brides, English Garden and various independent and aspirational lifestyle magazines. When I am not churning out editorial or taking pics, I write fiction, poetry and more recently, lyrics. What’s here on Songbay is only a small sample of my work – but I’ll be adding new songs regularly so keep on coming back to my page! I’m pretty adaptable and I’d like to think I can write lyrics to suit most musical tastes. But I suspect I’m best suited to rock, pop, country and folk. If you give me an idea of what you’re after, I’m confident I could write something you’d like. More than that, I’m really happy to tweak things, or change verses, etc, as needed.
So, if you are lost for words and need some help, or want to collaborate, please get in touch.
