Striking The Right Chord

January 25, 2017 § 1 Comment

My wife (and arranger) has talked on several occasions about a sort of jam writing session where she would just play with chords, and I would see what comes to mind. So, we decided to give it a try.

She played, what were for my songs, a slightly unusual grouping of chords. Within seconds, I started to get some ideas for lyrics, lyrics different from what I usually write.

I think these lyrics are a bit more poetic in nature, although I suppose others will have to be the judge of that. I also played with omitting words and with trying to create unusual word pictures. You will have to be the judge as to whether I succeeded.

Fields Of Imagination

There she sits –
Waits for someone who’ll never come
He lives in her head
Along with the dreams, elusive, never true

In her world –
Skies of purple, seas of green
At night in her bed
Emotions colored in crimson and blue

In fields of imagination
The roles are reversed
There in her private thoughts
The lines well-rehearsed
Delivered on cue

Racing time –
The second-hand goes running past
She stays in her dreams
kaleidoscope, fragments of long ago

Pieces everywhere
Remnants of a life unlived
The status quo

In fields of imagination
The roles are reversed
There in her private thoughts
The lines well-rehearsed
Delivered on cue
