    @dekreel, I know very little about harmony because IΒ always sing melody. However, I like songs with harmony…Emily sings harmony, and my little brother Daniel is incredible at harmony!

    Ya, sometimes songs that are stuck in your head are irritated, but I’m not bothered by the one I currently have stuck in my head. It’s so awesome! Especially the guitar part. And her melody! Ah, it’s gorgeous. I could listen to it all day.

    @shannon πŸ˜€ That is amazing! I really like it (Stan’s pretending he doesn’t, but he keeps reading it over and over)

    It definitely has the kind of feel that would totally fit you guys’ band, just from the lyrics, and it’s so beautiful

    That’s epic! I would be extremely excited, too. I work on melodies for my songs, but that’s the hardest part for me. I have tunes for around half of them

    I would love to have a Youtube channel, too πŸ˜€

    Problem is, I can’t really sing. I want to learn, though

    So… I could just put lyrics up online, or try to learn how to perform my own songs, and then put them up. XD. It’ll probably take me awhile, but I really want to do it

    @sam-kowal Thanks! Yes, my teacher is going to write it in country/folk style! Tell Stan that if he doesn’t like it, it’s ok. I just won’t send him glitter for his birthday πŸ˜‰

    Ya, if you could post the lyrics and the melody on youtube, then people who are addicted to singing (like me) could sing along! So, do you play guitar? I can’t remember…

    I’ve got rhythm in my blood and melodies in my thoughts.

    So yeah. But I can’t write songs.

    @dekreel, @shannon, @sam-kowel,

    love your songes.

     

    here’s one I’m working on…

    V1

    Empty faces with empty smiles

    You just pass them by

    You could never understand them

    Unless you ask them why

    C

    Why do you hide

    why do you lie

    Why do you say everything is alright

    Why do you run

    Why do you cry

    Why don’t you show us who you really are

    Β 

    Thats all I have finished right now, verse two isn’t wanting to make sense

    @dekreel, thanks. I actually had verse 2 ready and done and was about to post it when I realized that it would probably send a different message than was intended

    I’ve got rhythm in my blood and melodies in my thoughts.

    That would actually make a good first line XD

    @shannonΒ  Is your family a musical family?

    @shannon Yep, I play guitar… more like I’m learning it right now

    I can’t play super fast fingering

    πŸ™‚ That’s another good idea. If I have enough time, I might try to that at some point.

     

    @aislinn-mollisong XD XD @dekreel You’re right. That does sound like an awesome first line πŸ˜€ I wouldn’t be so sure you can’t write songs @aislinn-mollisong

     

    @alia πŸ˜€ Wow. I love that πŸ˜€

    It reminds me of something meaningful and introspective

    You should definitely finish it

    @aislinn-mollisong πŸ˜€ Now, you just need a nice heavy electronic beat to go along with a robot singing XD

    Those are actually really neat, though. (Once you disregard the extra text XD) I love when stories have in-world songs and lore, it makes them feel much more rich and solid. And having them as chapter headings is a really good idea πŸ˜€
