What will it take to make you listen
What more can I do to show I'm serious
Nothing I say gets heard, it's pointless
I'm better off dead, maybe then you can hear me

How many times must I repeat myself until you understand
Everything I say I say for a reason
When you say you'll do better I don't think you can
I've been around long enough to know it's not gonna happen

Talking to you feels like going to war
And friendly fire becomes a leisure sport
We're shooting rounds like there's no tomorrow
Our words are bullets - lock and load, rock and roll

How many times must I repeat myself until you understand
Everything I say I say for a reason
When you say you'll do better I don't think you can
I've been around long enough to know it's not gonna happen

You say you try I don't believe it
You're full of lies it's not a secret
We've been down this road too many times for you to pretend
Not to know where we're at and where we're going
You take the backroads thinking it'll be quicker
But you always get lost blaming me as the cause

You say you try I don't believe it
You're full of lies it's not a secret
I'm getting tired putting up with your silly tricks
I'm getting out of this messed up relationship

What will it take to make you listen
What more can I do to show I'm serious
Nothing I say gets heard, it's pointless
I'm better off dead, maybe then you can hear me

How many times must I repeat myself until you understand
Everything I say I say for a reason
When you say you'll do better I don't think you can
I've been around long enough to know it's not gonna happen

Wonderful starlet singing on the stage
Dancing and bouncing off the walls
Careless, entranced in the music you play
Feeding the hungry audience

Wonderful starlet acting in the play
Moving the crowd with your scenes
Everyone's silently watching how it ends
They stand and cheer, you cry as they applaud

But from the moment you chose this life
You knew that somewhere deep down inside
Something's not right
The fruits of your labor aren't so sweet
Despite your image on the streets

One minute they parade your name and face
But dig your grave if they don't have their way
How quick you rise you'll fall just as fast
You're not the first and I'm afraid you won't be the last
If people never change they remain the same

Wonderful starlet sitting all alone
Unsure of who to turn for help
Dreary and lonesome in your empty home
We'll never know the pain they put you through

Wonderful starlet may you rest in peace
No one can hurt you anymore
Everyone's silently grieving in their hearts
You'll never know how well you played your part

Wonderful starlet...

Wonderful Starlet

I can't help but to find myself lost in a sea of green and blue
The waves gently persuade me to move, setting me in its groove
The ocean is so serene, for once, I find myself at peace
Whoever knew being lost at sea could put you at ease

I wash up on an island, the sand is white and soft to the touch
The water's warm as it crawls up to shore luring me to come
The ocean is so serene, for once, I find myself at peace
Whoever knew being lost at sea could put you at ease

I don't mind being lost for a while
I just wanna take my time and relish this moment
For everything I feel could be gone in an instant
But when I open my eyes I want to see it all stay the same
No scratches or blemishes, I don't want to see anything change

I can't help but to find myself lost in a sea of green and blue
The waves gently persuade me to move, setting me in its groove
The ocean is so serene, for once, I find myself at peace
Whoever knew being lost at sea could put you at ease

About Me

Bio

Hello, weary traveler, my name is Brian Tarr and thank you for stumbling upon my profile. Writing has been a passion of mine since I was a child. Throughout my life it has given me the freedom to express myself creatively, serving as an outlet to transform feelings and experiences into something worthwhile that can be shared with others.

From the first moment I heard "Bye Bye Bye" by NSYNC and "Sunday Morning" by Maroon 5 to the likes of Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Prince, Hall and Oates, Journey, Tatsuro Yamashta and many others, I developed a deep sense of love and admiration for music and songwriting. Although I do not play any musical instruments, I can come up with vocal melodies to help guide and complete a lyric. Other than that, words and story-telling are my personal preferences.

Some days I will wake up and suddenly have an idea or phrase come to mind that implores me to write it down before it fades away into a horrific place I'd like to call "Missed Opportunities". Then there are other days where... well, nothing comes to mind. I would rather write nothing than force something because I know I will throw it away afterwards. So, in a sense, my way of writing is more spontaneous rather than methodical and structured.

I am grateful and thankful to you, whomever you may be, for taking the time to take a gander at my lyric(s) and if you deem them suitable for whatever use you may have for them.

CV/History

I'm an American Lyricist and have been writing lyrics since 2014. I mainly write pop, ballad, and folk lyrics but am willing to dabble in other styles to better myself as a lyricist. I am more than happy to be of assistance in being your wordsmith in dire times of need. Who knows, maybe we can become the Elton John/Bernie Taupin of today's generation and future generations to come! I am open to any collaborating opportunities that come my way regardless of musical style/genre.

I look forward to our highly prosperous and auspicious journey together.
