Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on TAM's lyric:

"I like the story here...get a sense of who these people are...it's still in need of a few tweeks...

LOVE hard to hear...but what's hard to hear? So much stronger to be specific!

Here's another approach just inspired by a few snippets of what you wrote...notice how it fits perfectly with the melody with no extra syllables or accents in the wrong place...

"The truth has never lost to fear
It'll wait forever to be known
Till the moment that it all comes clear
Flowing like a river over stone"

or

"The truth is never lost in fear
It waits until it's moment to be known
Shining with it's light so clear
Flowing like a river over stone"

See how this opens us up to a whole new vista?? and we can go from this to the next section feeling like we really went somewhere...this is what I'm looking for.

Lyric by TAM:

"For both of us, it’s hard to hear / Do you think our hearts have closed? / The truth is, my biggest fear / Is you’re in favor of us being opposed"

My Lyrics

So the choice is mine / if I fall, I’ll rise
So the choice is mine / broken wings can fly
So the choice is mine / wake each day and fly
Face to face / move a little closer / Step by Step (John Lee) / unsure what we’ll find / Side by side / the view will be worth the climb...but I’m never gonna change your mind.
Face to face / (we) inch a little close / Round a bend / (that’s a BIG surprise) / (It’s) one steep hill / but the view will be worth the climb / Still I’m never gonna change your mind! (Or “Step by step” for “It’s one steep hill”)
Inch by inch / we move ahead together / Step by step / unsure what we’ll find / It’s one steep hill / and the VIEW will be WORTH the CLIMB...but I’m never gonna change your mind
Face to face / move a little closer / Make a turn / unsure what we’ll find / Step by step (JohnLee) / the VIEW will be WORTH the CLIMB...But I’m never gonna change your mind
We weave our web / twistin and a-turnin / So entwined (KeithCurtis) / Ties that bind (KevinOsborne) (two counts on ties) / We raise our heads / and look each other in the eye / Still I’m never gonna change your mind!
In the end / here we are together / A spider’s web / with ties that bind (KevinOsborne) / And like our lives / we’ll always be intertwined / But I’m never gonna change your mind
So we weave our web / really in a tangle / Ties that bind (KevinOsborne) / grow and entwine / I shake my head / and breathe a great big sigh / ‘Cause I’m never gonna change your mind
So we weave our web / gettin in a tangle / Ties that bind (KevinOsborne) / grow and entwine / You know tight knots / are always the strongest kind / But I’m never gonna change your mind
But this goes both ways / Try so hard to listen / (I) think and pray / Look to above / The reasons clear / listening is a way to love / (or “listening is an act of love*) / But I’m never gonna change your mind
a tiny little spark
(A) glimmer of a hope / flicker of a light ... (Apologies if this has been said; so many of us are attracted to the same words! Like moths to flickers of light!)
(a) casual remark / quiet little light / grows until it sparks / the notion that I might / Might just / Might be right
One of my remarks / shines a little light / This could be the start / the notion that I might / might just / might be right
One of my remarks / echoes in the night / this could be the start / the notion that I might / might just / might be right
You may feel a spark / You may see a light /Could be a fresh start / the notion that I might....
I’m throwing this to the hookist universe: I have a Line 3 I kinda like, but I haven’t fgured out how to lead up to it. “Like climbing vines, we’re so intertwined / But I’m never gonna change your mind.”
(Yeah) it’s hard to feel / we’re wearing armor / an iron shield / is one way to hide / but lets be real / no matter what I try ... I’m never gonna change your mind
So I try to feel, take off the armor / the iron shield I’m hiding behind / show your heart, and I will show you mine ... still I’m never gonna change your mind

Yeah we're living in a world of fear
Well another voice is hard to hear / It hurts to think our hearts have closed / But maybe hope can heal the fear / That you don’t mind when we feel so opposed

No comments

Well, I’m not afraid to make some waves / I’ll keep speaking out loud and clear / But if I let love lead the way / Maybe you will find a way to hear
Well, I’m not ashamed of making waves / And I know my voice will drown out any fear / You said there’s so much more to being brave / Than being the only sound than anyone can hear <I>

No comments

Well, another voice is hard to hear / I worry that our weary hearts have closed / I can’t go on and live in fear / Don’t like knowing that we’re feeling so opposed (Or: … feeling so alone) Resubmit with edits from Beth’s input

We can’t feel much if we’re wearing armor / We can’t hear much if our hearts are closed / We can’t think much if our minds are made up / I’m not in favor of being opposed
For both of us, it’s hard to hear / Do you think our hearts have closed? / The truth is, my biggest fear / Is you’re in favor of us being opposed
