Songs & music I wrote

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.

paradise streams

I take the night by the hand and away in dreams I go

Following the footsteps of a forgotten road

Feeding my mind with wonders of the night

Dreaming of a land where my hopes come to light

I can’t see an ending to my story

My life of eternity is full of glory

I cannot be alone when I’ve come to paradise

And I can see that my heart’s wishes come to me in afterlife

I cannot be afraid when I have so many hands guiding me to the light

And when I’ve had enough of life I can say goodnight

Because you’re not alone, in a land where angels fly

You’re not alone, in a place you’ll never die

You’re not alone when you’re by your loved ones

And you’re not alone when you’re with your maker

Come on be a taker of this life, dream life

Dream away your world of sorrows

Maybe you’ll be in paradise tomorrow, and then you can say

Have faith

And know, what you’re talking about, go ahead and shout it out now you’re free

Come away with me

I long for you, to smother me in your glee

And I will hold your hand and take you to that land of dreams

Sweet dreams

Paradise streams

Is the theme

 This song probably doesn’t make a lot of sense to people, but I hoped that some people viewed the song as a person whose falling into a dream world which they confused as heaven and is encouraging others around them to become more susceptible to imagination.  But I guess the lyrics could be read wrong by many.  I didn’t revise this song at all, so I am not expecting good reviews, it’s just a song I had to write down as it came as it kept repeating in my head driving me crazy, saying WRITE ME NOW!

Just two scars

Sometimes I thought about writing a whole theater production or musical, as I imagine music and lyrics so much, but until I learn how to play music without playing by ear I fear this is a dream doomed to never become reality. 

This song below is something I’ve planned on doing as a musical; it’s about vampires and every paragraph skips back and forth between two characters, a vampire lady and the son of a pastor.

Originally when writing this song I thought it was going to become the love of an angel and a demon, fighting each other but then falling madly and deeply in love with each other, but as all you other writers out there knows; your work dictates to you, you don’t dictate to it, and so as it flowed on it became vampiric, not a struggle between good and evil like first planned.

Hope you enjoy it – remember it’s to be sung, not read as poetry, but I don’t expect you to know the tune it’s supposed to be sang to.  In all honesty, it was supposed to be a poem too, but it never turned out that way, I got something at the back of my head as background music which resembled something Manowar would have.

 

There fire in my soul, there’s a fire in my heart tonight

Tonight, there’s a place where the darkness fights the light

Tonight, tonight, our love is a place that beckons for a fight

With you in my arms, I feel your charms

Happy with me, you’re restless without me

You’re an angel faced fool

I’ve watched how you’ve drooled

As I shimmy around the nightclub

Tooled by my quest to capture you

You’re easy prey

The devil said it and now I say it too

You’re easy prey

A purity installed heart, I’ll tear you apart

Hear what I say

I am bad for you, oh guess what I’m gonna do

I’ll lead you astray

To a place you’ve never dreamed

I will do it this way

Make your heart mine and on a feast of blood I’ll dine

And take your bouquet

And lay it across your coffin

Knowing you’ll be mine forever

Don’t scream

 

I lay in confusion, wondering what happened

I feel very different, where am I?

 

You are with me, my sweet little angel

I have given you a gift

You and I are children of the night, dear

We are vampires, in case it isn’t clear

 Please, have no fear

 

This can’t be true, I refuse to believe it

Let me out of this place, your lies are a disgrace

 

Listen to me, it is the truth

A mirror will prove it

Don’t be so uncouth

 

I don’t believe it

It’s true

I see no reflection

 

It’s true, now that you’ve seen it

You know that forever you’ll have youth

 

These are the trials and tribulations of creating new, excitations

How do you view my revelations?

Do you want this too?

Do you want to be renewed?

Vampires of the night we are

Fashioned by hunger

Our sun is millions of stars

 

Take my hand and become like us

All it takes is two scars

your lies cut me like a knife

This is another jazz style song that came into my head today.

Keep me dreaming about your lies

It keeps me close to you, and you realize, that

I’m in love with you, so you can do as you wish

To make me stay

To never ever never go away

 

I’ll be good, oh so good to you

For as long as you keep those lies close to your chest

You’ll try your hardest

To keep me blinded by your loving, yes

 

I can see now, how hard it was for me to see

Beyond the lies you gave

Oh baby, baby, I will miss you now

Oh baby, baby, I will not stay

You had your chance and you lead me astray

 

Can’t turn back the clock baby

You can’t undo this mess

But goodness honey with those lies you gave to me

The heartbreak was the best

 

You have no idea what I am living through

You’ve no idea what you’ve put me through

You’ve not a clue how I feel now

You never experienced a love that failed

 

Please honey, stop this lying

There’s no point denying

That you was a bad, bad boy, oh no

 

There’s no point hiding, behind pleading tears

You lied to me for many years

I set myself free from your fiction

I need to end this horrible friction, yes

 

I need to go away

Where my heart can sing, rejoice and play oh yes,

I need to find a better life

And baby, it’s not with you, your lies cut me like a knife

 

You can’t keep me this way

Keep me dreaming about your lies

It keeps me close to you, and you realize, that

I’m in love with you, so you can do as you wish

To make me stay

To never ever never go away

to part you recommended

The below text is a song I wrote, but I haven’t written the music yet; it’s jazz, I really like how it sounds in my head, to me the words make sense by the way it should be sung, but unfortunately I can’t sing the lyrics on a mic to post it so you get a fair idea because I’ve had a throat virus since February and it’s damaged my voice a little, but hopefully soon I can get composing the music (if I remember it) and it hopefully the words get sung properly by me so it’s good enough to sell.

I love you and you love me

How did I know this would end in tragedy?

So, there we was walking hand in hand

You’re the best boy I ever knew in this whole and massive land

So happy I am to be with you

I didn’t know it would end, I had no clue

You lead me astray and then it ended

When looking at the ocean

To part you recommended

That we’d part our ways and looking on at waves

I thought it couldn’t be true, but it was, our love is through woo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo

Babe, our love has ended

Now what am I to do?

Woo hoo hoo hoo hoo

As I saw you leaving my heart it started grieving, wo hoo hoo hey

I couldn’t believe that it could end in such a way

The sun was setting over the horizon

I was lonely and my face was dampened with tears and the memories of the years we had together

WOO HOO HOO HOO HOO YEAH YEAH

I was looking back at your footsteps in the golden sand

A voice in the back of my head said he is not a man

Wo ho ho hey

Find yourself someone new, that’s what you have to do

Yeah yeah yeah

He left but I’m fine, so fine ha ha hine

I will find someone kind hey hey hey

I am stronger than that oh yea

I won’t cry anymore tears I swear

I let those memories hold me strong

So to you I don’t belong, but that’s OK

You’re not perfect anyway

So wrapped myself around my shawl

Heading home before the nightfall

Oh yeah heh heh yeah

I didn’t know it would end, I had no clue

You lead me astray and then it ended

When looking at the ocean

To part you recommended

That we’d part our ways and looking on at waves

I thought it couldn’t be true, but it was, our love is through

And I don’t care

No I don’t care

Not at all h-all

I’ll keep strong h-h-h-ong, yeah
