A strange request
« on: July 26, 2005, 11:40:27 pm »
Yes, this is weird, but nothing that anyone has to do if they don't feel like it / don't have the time for helping. In fact it may be alot of work for something so small. I'll make sure to credit you if you want though.

My friend likes to write song texts. Mostly they're depressing, but I thought it'd be neat if anyone could come up with some notes, play, sing, and record this song she wrote:

Quote
Run away...

Run away from my fears
Run away from my tears
Run away from my harms
Run away from my charms
Run away from my past
Run away, and make it last
Run away when something goes wrong
Run away when you feel
like you don't belong

When you feel like you're stumbling, and can't stand
reach out and grab ahold of my hand
When you feel like quitting the game
close your eyes, and whisper my name
When you're alone in the darkness, paralyzed with fright
I'll be there to hold you close every night
If loving you means I'm comitting a crime
Then I'll forever keep comitting it, until the end of time

I'll spare you the teary-eyed stuff about her illness because I don't want you to feel bad about her (she has a strong will), I'd just like try turning one of her texts into a song. I suppose it's a weird way to cheer her up about life, but if anyone's feeling friendly, go for it. :)

If I had some recording program I definitely would (although I don't know how well a saw rendition would be recieved :P), but I don't =/

Sorry, man.

I'll give it a shot if I can figure something out.  It'll have to wait until tomorrow or Thursday before I start, though.

To be honest I haven't worked on this much at all.  I figured some basic chords but I dunno how much I like it...  I'm thinking of making it sound all sad and pretty, but I'm not totallly sure yet.

It's okay if you can't / don't have the time for it, guys. :) I'd be glad for any help though.

With a name like that, it's gotta be good.
