Songs & music I wrote

Floating but not happy

I am floating without a purpose

Wondering where I will flow

Don’t know why I exist here

I don’t know where I will go

Who are these people flying by me?

What are their names and what do they do?

I want to know everybody, want to know who is who

But mostly I am seeking for another you

I am in the air floating

I don’t know why I’m here

Floating because reality is hard

It happened ever since you broke from me dear

The floating feeling is not happiness

It is a sense of loss

It is a surreal moment

Look some floating moss

I can’t be normal anymore

My brain is too mushed up

I’ve been this way ever since you broke us up

I can’t be who I once was

She is dead and gone

I keep on floating by the weak and the strong

I don’t think they see me

Though I wished they did

I float along in silence

Will I crash into them?  God forbid

I keep on thinking about you

Although you’re lost and gone

I keep on wanting someone

Who will end this sad song!

Don’t you dare cry

Hello darling

Don’t you dare cry

I know the world it pains you it’s clear to see

But I want you to know I am here for you darling

Isn’t my love plain to see?

Look up darling, see the sun shine

Don’t dwell on things that won’t let you grow

All I want is to see you darling, smile and let happiness grow

Don’t keep thinking, about those dark thoughts

Just keep on thinking of the things you love

Don’t hear the gossip or the critics

They won’t help you, rise above

Kiss me darling, maybe your fears will fade away?

I am here for you always with open arms

Do not drown yourself in grey my darling

How I wished I had a magic charm

Then you can see my darling

That life is better if you do not dwell

Then happiness will flow to you darling

And your confidence will swell

Then there will be no dark clouds, only blue

I would do this all for you

So right now darling, don’t you dare cry

I know the world it pains you it’s clear to see

But I want you to know I am here for you darling

Isn’t my love plain to see?

Look up darling, see the sun shine

Don’t dwell on things that won’t let you grow

All I want is to see you darling, smile and let happiness grow

Happiness and Ken Dodd

Happiness I remember that

I remember things that gave me that

I remember you and I remember them

I remember happiness; I hope I will have it again

To me the world is a terrible place

Especially all people of the human race

I’m the unluckiest person in the human race

I’ve got no silver and I’ve got no gold

And I have misery in my soul

Happiness to me is peace of mind

A body without ill or pain and it’s mine

A big old family with lots of love

Lots of kisses and lots of hugs

Oh happiness, happiness

I wished I was blessed with happiness

I ask the lord, please do bless

Me with more than my share of happiness

Happiness is having pride, having a future and life that’s a wonderful ride

A piece of wealth and a lot of health

And lots of friends to pick off the shelf

A wise old man told me one time

Happiness is a frame of mind

You get what you mostly think about

And how I wanted to give that man a clout!

Oh happiness, happiness, is the greatest gift that I don’t possess

I pray to the lord that I be blessed with just a little piece of happiness

First of all let me apologise to hard-core Ken Dodd fans (like me) of which I have ruined a lovely song of.  But I really wanted to write this, it used to be my favourite song and it used to annoy people and I think I may have sang it once too much to a jealous witch, because I feel cursed these days.  I was so happy once on the first time I moved out that I was literally walking on air and being stupidly blind to the fact that it can someday go all wrong.  I know, I know, it is a depressive’s version of the great Ken Dodd’s song and I even sing this in the same tune, sorry, not completely original, but it is my take on it.  The tune is sung at a slower tempo as it is depressing, not at all like the original upbeat version Ken had made).

Happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I posses

I thank the Lord that I’ve been blessed

With more than my share of happiness

To me this old world is a wonderful place

I’m just about the luckiest human in the whole human race

I’ve got no silver and I’ve got no gold

But I’ve got happiness in my soul

Happiness to me is an ocean tide

A sunset fading on a mountain side

A big old heaven full of stars above

When I’m in the arms of the one I love

Oh, happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I posses

I thank the Lord that I’ve been blessed

With more than my share of happiness

Happiness is a field of grain

Turning its face to the falling rain

I see it in the sunshine, breathe it in the rain

Happiness, happiness everywhere

A wise old man told me one time

Happiness is a frame of mind

When you go to measuring my success

Don’t count my money count my happiness

Oh, happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I posses

I thank the Lord I’ve been blessed

With more than my share of happiness

Oh, happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I posses

I thank the Lord I’ve been blessed

With more than my share of happiness

I got more than my share of happiness

Shadows stop, I will fade away

Save me from this cruel world

With heartless people and all the ills

Save me from this cruel world

It takes a lot for me not to down these pills

The shadows you see on the walls

Cover me entirely

I am drowning in their darkness and their sorrows

I can’t take it anymore

Take me out of this world’s door

I implore, I implore

Madness slowly seeping in

When will comfort begin?

Hello shadows drowning me

Go away if you please

But if you do not and you stay

I will surely fade away

I can’t take it anymore, please take me out of life’s doors

The darkness is slowly taking over

Please help me to recover

Unless I die in your arms tonight

I will not be free

Madness slowly seeping in

When will comfort begin?

Hello Shadows drowning me

Go away if you please

But if you do not and you stay

I will surely fade away

I am made of porcelain

I am made of porcelain, porcelain, porcelain. I am made of porcelain and I come, come, come from China. then I came overseas, overseas, overseas, then I came overseas a long, long way from china

The above rhyme was written by me in 1997 for some school-children I was attending during work-experience as a teaching assistant in Colindale, North London.

Merry Christmas welcome to my world

Merry, merry Christmas

Merry, merry Christmas

Happy, happy New Year

Happy, happy New Year

It’s festive time

It’s festive time

It’s Christmas time

Merry Christmas, welcome to my world

Snow and ice, sugary spice

And having a good time

Bring me the red wine

And sing in time

To the very merry song

We’ll dance and play and sing all day

Dingy, dingy, ding dang dong

Hear children dance around a snowman, singing this very song

Did you hear that Santa came, golly what a bing bang bong

On his sleigh so high, he flew right by

Dropping presents through

Our chimney tops, golly what a hoo ha hoo

Sing along, sing along, sing along to this Christmas song

Sing along, sing along, sing along to this Christmas song

Merry, merry Christmas

Merry, merry Christmas

Happy, happy New Year

Happy, happy New Year

Merry, merry Christmas

Merry, merry Christmas

Happy, happy New Year

Happy, happy New Year

Merry, merry Christmas

Merry, merry Christmas

Happy, happy New Year

Happy, happy New Year

It’s festive time

It’s festive time

It’s Christmas time

Merry Christmas, welcome to my world

This song I thought was very Christmassy but also very annoying and I wouldn’t blame anyone for hating it if it ever got out into the music industry – it’s like crazy frog meets the Brady bunch.  But I liked how it sounded in my head, but even to me its creator it became grating.

In fact, so much so I was laughing hysterically through the last few verses and grinning like I belong in an asylum.  Hoped you liked it better than me *grins*.

It’s Christmas time

The bells of Christmas are chiming the hour of waking to presents galore

Children awaking and presents they’re shaking, wrapping paper all over the floor

It’s Christmas time, a time of fun

Look what Santa’s magic has spun

It’s Christmas time

A wonderful day

Listen to the children laugh and play

It’s Christmas time look at the feast

Roasting a magnificent beast

With décor chiming all around

Listen to the festive sounds

Its Christmas time a wonderful day, look around you what do you say?

It’s Christmas time, a time for peace

Sitting by the fire in a soft lovely fleece

We all will love our Christmas day

A time where everybody will play

We will sing to our hearts content and nonchalantly we’ll invent

Games and happiness galore, makes Christmas time never a bore

It’s Christmas time, a time of fun

Look what Santa’s magic has spun

It’s Christmas time

A wonderful day

Listen to the children laugh and play

It’s Christmas time look at the feast

Roasting a magnificent beast

I am not a man

Sunrise is a killer for me

Darkness is my infinity

Look at my heart its beating

Soon it’s a heart that’s eternally bleeding

Darkness surrounds my soul

Eating me up whole

Darkness is where I go

For I have now sold my soul

Dream the future baby

I’ll be there to forsake thee

I won’t wait for you

I can’t wait for you

Please understand, I’m no mortal man

I need your blood, your life

Please understand, I’m a beast not a man

I’ll suck you of all your life

Darkness surrounds my soul

Eating me up whole

Darkness is where I go

For I have now sold my soul

You can’t understand the life of an immortal man

You can’t understand I’m a beast not a man

Sunrise is a killer for me

Darkness is my infinity

Look at my heart its beating

Soon it’s a heart that’s eternally bleeding

Darkness surrounds my soul

Eating me up whole

Darkness is where I go

For I have now sold my soul

you mortal fool

Nightmares lurking in the shadows

Midnight creeping up the stairs

A cold chill comes to tap your shoulder

What are you here for?

You don’t know what danger I am

You mortal fool

You awful fool

You don’t know who or what I am

You mortal fool

You awful fool

Here I am, I’m cute as apple pie

One step closer, you’re gonna die

I’ve got cute fangs, cute fangs like incy wincy spider

Come to me and I will bite ya

You don’t know what danger I am

You mortal fool

You awful fool

You don’t know who or what I am

You mortal fool

You awful fool

Oh baby, baby what did I say?

Why do you bleed in such a way?

Oh look at your life it’s gone away

Deary me couldn’t you stay?

You don’t know what danger I am

You mortal fool

You awful fool

You don’t know who or what I am

You mortal fool

You awful fool

You don’t know what danger I am

You mortal fool

You awful fool

You don’t know who or what I am

You mortal fool

You awful fool

Devil’s tango 2

Gingerly I danced with the devil

Cautiously I gave him my heart

Defiantly I played roulette with the devil

Now he is tearing my soul apart

 

That’s what happens when you play with fire

That’s what happens when you’re lead by desire

This is what happens when you’re toying with lust

Soon my soul will turn to dust dust dust

 

Just look at me, look at me

I am just a fragment of the former me

I cannot lie, I’d rather die

But no mortal hears my desperate cries

 

Look at me, look at me

I am just a shell of what I used to be

Look at me, look at me

Won’t someone help? 

Set me free?

This is a song I wrote tonight, I still haven’t learned how to write music yet and I do have the music in mind for this song and I think it would do brilliantly with a tango theme.  I would love to become a songwriter and composer but at the moment I really can’t afford the lessons I need to learn how to read and write music effectively enough to sell.

It’s a shame really because I often get songs and music in my head, more than I do novels and poems etc.
