Wk 8 – Art Experience – Your Realism is getting in the way of my Romanticism!

Why do you look at me in that way
It’s like you just saw me today
You ask me if I’m okay
I say that I’m fine, just thinking
Your face turned away
It feels like I’m sinking

In another world, you would have dug further
My days wouldn’t be blue
My heart wouldn’t feel murdered
If I was her, I would be adored by you
Being whispered “I love you” in my ear
So sincere
I can’t take off these rose-tinted glasses
It’s like playing with matches

These days, I’m getting lost
With my pink hues, I wander the streets
Trying to escape the thought of you
I’m trying to find peace
I’m long overdue getting over you
But my heart won’t let go

In another world, you would have dug further
My days wouldn’t be blue
My heart wouldn’t feel murdered
If I was her, I would be adored by you
Being whispered “I love you” in my ear
So sincere
I can’t take off these rose-tinted glasses
It’s like playing with matches

I can’t take off these rose-tinted glasses (I can’t, I can’t)
Where are my chances
I never had a chance (I never, I never)
Not in this world

  1. In my song, I was trying to put myself in the shoes of a girl who loves her friend, but he loves someone else. She loses herself in her daydreams that has her friend loving her like he loves the other girl. When she starts to be in her thoughts, she has on these “glasses.” She doesn’t want to take them off because she’s not ready to let her friend go just yet.
  2. My process for writing the song was kind of funny. I looked up rhyme schemes because I was thinking that songs are just poems with music, right? I guess my lyrics can be read like a poem. I also looked up some words I could write down that rhymed with the word I was trying to rhyme.
  3. I expected this to be really hard, but it wasn’t as difficult as I thought the process would be. I think if I was trying to create an actual song that would be a bop though, it would be a lot harder. That being said, it was actually difficult to start the lyrics. I didn’t know what to write a song about, but I realized that the more I went with the flow, the easier it was to put down lyrics.
  4. I think my song wouldn’t be successful, but who knows. Maybe someone out there will actually like it.
  5. I don’t think I’ll ever write another song because I’m not a musician or a songwriter. Honestly, it’s hard, and all the male and female song artists have my respect for being able to write that many songs and sing them.
  6. If I did write another song, I think it would be about love. Not the sad kind of love like this song I just wrote, but the happy kind. It would be about the joys of already being in a loving relationship. It would be in the perspective of myself because I’m in a happy and loving relationship!
