Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on kayly's lyric:

"great feel and how the lines sing with the melody...still al little vague...set me straight about what? reasons for what? "

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"Well, I could set you straight / write out all my reasons / sit and wait / chill and unwind / you’d erase / everything I underlined / and I’m never gonna change your mind"

Lyric by kayly:

"Well, I could make a deal / compromise and settle / keep it real / let it all slide / break your will / or learn to let your heart decide / but I’m never gonna change your mind"

"GREAT first 2 lines...fresh!!"

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"Well, I could come unwound / give you ultimatums / or turn around / and try to be kind / if you’d back down / there’s a different view you’d find / but I’m never gonna change your mind (Credit to keithcurtis for “try to be kind”)"

"very close to phrasing heaven!

reach what place?"

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"If I could reach that place / Would it make a difference / I can’t wait / For what I might find / It’s not too late / A heart’s got plenty of time / But I’m never gonna change your mind"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on kayly's lyric:

"Love how "mistaken" lands at the end of line 2. I'd play around with saying

"I could show you how
Maybe you're mistaken"

then I'd write 5 more first lines with that second line...stretching out past what you have is a great trick for getting even better stuff!

another one...notice how I grow the story with this opening:

"You think you're so sure now
But maybe you're mistaken"

But what if you're mistaken

But I know you're mistaken

and on and on!! "

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"I could show you how / you are so mistaken / say out loud / you can’t be right / I care for you / and want you here in my life / but I’m never gonna change your mind"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on kayly's lyric:

"great first line and like second line but if you notice the accent is on the first syllable over the melody on "sink in" so that when you sing it is sounds more like "sinkin" ....when you would speak sink in the accent would be on "in" in normal speech...so it weakens the line to stretch the seams like that...."

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"Well, I could talk all day / hopin’ it will sink in / find a way / make you see why / you’d still say / I’m just wasting your time / but I’m never gonna change your mind"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on kayly's lyric:

"what is the "its"? hmmm would be great to explore how life is beautiful, strange and kind...?"

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / it’s beautiful, it’s strange, it’s kind"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on kayly's lyric:

"Ha ha ha...this one made me smile!"

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / goes back to when we both were nine"

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on kayly's lyric:

"LOVE the "might as well" idea...especially starting second line. what could the ending of that be that's not an "I" vowel so we don't have 4 in a row?"

(more)
Lyric by kayly:

"I’m never gonna change your mind / I might as well rearrange the sky"

If only you could realize / livin' in a battle takes it's toll / when your mind is tellin' lies / you gotta get the answer from your soul

No comments

Well, I guess I'm chasin' dreams again / runnin' after those that won't come true / just remember I'm a friend / I'm hopin' that I mean as much to you

No comments

Well, it seems like this is just a dream / and in the daylight gonna disappear / differences that come between / are gone now and no longer welcome here

No comments

Well, I'm never ready for defeat / I'll keep on hopin' I'll get through to you / and maybe when our two hearts meet / the love they have will show us what to do
If we ever put an end to this / there’ll be flyin’ pigs and freezin’ hell / what I’m gonna mostly miss / the fussin’ and the fightin’ we do well

No comments

When everything is said and done / and battles are in yesterday's news / nothing's different, nobody won / the love is what we're never gonna lose
I’m wonderin’ if you’re just like me / wishin’ we could stay the way we were / and if we do or don’t agree / all we really want is to be heard
I'm hopin' that I've let you see / sides you never knew were there before / whatever you may think of me / I'm just gonna love you more and more
Well, I could set you straight / write out all my reasons / sit and wait / chill and unwind / you’d erase / everything I underlined / and I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could stop and give up / say you’re more than hopeless / wish you luck / leave you behind / I’m just stuck / lovin’ you for all this time / but I’m never gonna change your mind
I could use big words / or try to keep it simple / it’s occurred / you don’t need lines / if you’ve heard / what I’ve said a thousand times / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could spend my days / caught up in this quarrel / it’s that maze / built while you’re blind / I could raise / that elusive bar in time / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could make a deal / compromise and settle / keep it real / let it all slide / break your will / or learn to let your heart decide / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could come unwound / give you ultimatums / or turn around / and try to be kind / if you’d back down / there’s a different view you’d find / but I’m never gonna change your mind (Credit to keithcurtis for “try to be kind”)
Well, you are so strong-willed / it’s too hard to reach you / your heart is sealed / it’s one of a kind /like a shield / I can’t ever get behind / and I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could wring my hands / like I’m goin’ crazy / which you can’t stand / you’ll run and hide / and there’s a chance / your heart ends up on my side / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could play my role / Use the love unspoken / Win your soul / Give it some time / Break that mold / The one that made your heart’s design / But I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could give you proof / there’s somethin’ to my thinkin’ / it’s plain truth / I’m not gonna lie / your excuse / is sayin’ “I’m always right” / and I’m never gonna change your mind
If I could reach that place / Would it make a difference / I can’t wait / For what I might find / It’s not too late / A heart’s got plenty of time / But I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could climb that tower / like “Sleepless in Seattle” / we’d stay hours / like Hanks and Meg Ryan / give me the power / I’ll make you my Valentine / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I know you’re not me / we’re like oil and water / can’t agree / and that would be fine / if you’d see / we’re still on the same side / but I’m never gonna change your mind
When you hear me out / ‘n have a light bulb moment / then that doubt / erases my try / my hope’s drowned / your heart is what I can’t find / and I’m never gonna change your mind
I could show you how / you are so mistaken / say out loud / you can’t be right / I care for you / and want you here in my life / but I’m never gonna change your mind
Well, I could talk all day / hopin’ it will sink in / find a way / make you see why / you’d still say / I’m just wasting your time / but I’m never gonna change your mind
I’m never gonna change your mind / Life’s not givin’ us the room for one more chance
I’m never gonna change your mind / ‘cause it overrules your heart and hides your soul
I’m never gonna change your mind / If your heart is set on stayin’ just the same
I’m never gonnna change your mind / in a perfect world my side would be so clear
I’m never gonna change your mind / it’s as difficult as wakin’ up a dream
I’m never gonna change your mind / might as well be turnin’ sunlight into gold
Well, you’re never gonna change my mind / if you keep on spinnin’ all your bad as good
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / you don’t listen to what my heart has to say
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / it’s beautiful, it’s strange, it’s kind
I’m never gonna change your mind / guess you lost it when you left me last time
I’m never gonna change your mind / I’ve learned to leave it up to life
Well, I’m never gonna change your mind / goes back to when we both were nine
I’m never gonna change your mind / it’s like tryin’ to tame the tide
I’m never gonna change your mind / it’s set on sayin’ that same goodbye
I’m never gonna change your mind / I’m dreamin’ on borrowed time
You’re never gonna change my mind / this love I got ain’t goin’ outta style
I’m never gonna change your mind / I might as well rearrange the sky
I’m never gonna change your mind / like mountains too high for the climb
I’m never gonna change your mind / it’s so outta sync with your heart / one is whisperin’ “Stay this time” / one is shoutin’ that we’re better apart
But don’t apologize / we really tried
I’m over you, I’m strong / but don’t get me wrong
Tomorrow I’ll be fine / at least I’ll try
Moved from an also ran / a much wiser man
Regret ain’t called my name / I’m stronger an’ I’m sane
A match is handy sometimes / read between the lines
I’m still in love with you / so much stronger too
Still in a little love / wasn’t quite enough

I’m more than I was then / a better man times ten
Because we had this dance / I’m a better man
Wish you’da wanted us / and never caught that bus
If you ever change your mind / I ain’t hard to find
I’m takin’ chances now / you showed me how
I thought we had it all / hearts made the fall
Wish stayin’d made you see / what we could be
Been travelin’ back in time / losin’ my mind
I’m takin’ one last risk / to tell you this
So hard to let you go / but still I know
For a moment, I was back there / caught between my heart and mind
Set the bottle by the bedside / and laid that photo by the phone
Never told you, never meant to / I never thought to thank you then
Can’t be sorry, not one second / for turnin’ up that Texas town
So much better, life is good now / the man I am I owe to you
You’re the one I’ll atill remember / that time ain’t gonna fade away
Every misstep moved me closer / to the man I’m meant to be
I’m still starin’ at those blue eyes / wishin’ they could see me now
Lessons learned through all those young years / that better man they talk about
Or close the door on what we’ve been

No comments

Couldn’t make it past the dreamin’
(But) I can’t shake the way that we end
It’s like jumpin’ off the deep end
Or a future place where we win
We tried so hard to believe it
You can’t stop love when it’s leavin’
And we both knew what we needed
You were gone by the first of September / All I got are the flames to remember / And baby, that ain’t bad
There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl /not one in all of this whole world /but we knew we weren’t a perfect match/ and tho you shaped my heart, it wasn’t in the cards/ but there ain’t one kiss, no not one kiss, there never was a kiss I’d wanna take back

No comments

There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl / not one in all of this whole world /

No comments

There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl / not in all of Texas, not in all of this world

No comments

And I wouldn’t miss our last act, girl
Blue eyes askin’ where this thing will go / mine were sayin’ not so fast
‘Bout to hold me while we danced slow / on the banks of the Rio Grande
How can just one simple photo / bring the memories flowin’ fast
