    I thought I'd entered this but oh well. This song is for my Dad.

    My Star

    You are my star
    Shining bright
    A glowing beacon of light
    Burning so clear and so white
    You are my star and you're lighting up the night

    Verse 1:
    When I wake up from my dreams
    You're the one who's there for me
    If I wish upon you
    Then that wish will come true

    Chorus
    Chorus 2:
    You are my star, guiding my way
    Eternal light, night and day
    There are so many things that I could say
    But you're my star and no one can take you away

    Verse 2:
    You're always there to cheer me up
    You're always there to give me love
    You will always be my friend
    Until time comes to an end

    Chorus 1 & 2

    You're a star shining like the sun
    And you shine brighter than everyone

    Chorus 1 &2
    I write songs (=

    Hi I'll enter! This is a song I wrote about my poppa Brian who passed of lung cancer a few years ago! Hope you enjoy (sorry it's kind of sad)

    15 years
    in the Lazy days of summEr
    sitTing on our front porch
    talkIng about The Beatles
    and watching your cigarettE scorch
    a puff of smoke fiLls the air
    a harmless littlE cloud
    that's whaT it seemed to be
    so we dIdn't care
    but look what iT allowed

    what will i rememBer
    15 yEars from now
    will i Look at when it crumblEd
    and wonder how
    someThing toxIc ran through here
    And left my fuTure so unclear
    and made the doom and gloom come near

    another night of arguing with her
    made me want to hide away
    the worse you started to look
    the more I prayed for one more day
    i wished for the summer
    to lift your weight
    But who would of known by that time
    it'd bE too late

    what wiLl i remEmber
    15 years from now
    will i look aT when it crumbled
    and wonder how
    somethIng toxic ran through here
    And left my fuTure so unclear
    and made the doom and gloom come near

    now it's almost Been 5 years
    since you've left this world bEhind
    since the storm clouds rolled in
    and made the world unkind
    i am aware now
    of just how
    dark this world can be

    what i will remember
    15 years from now
    is not what i thought at that time
    i will look at the good times
    and the successes
    the places i've been
    and the addresses
    and when i look back on this
    i will think about how i've grown

    You're beautiful every little piece love

    About one of my best friends :( :) I hope you like it!

    In The Water

    Verse 1:
    You hide your tears behind a smile and a laugh
    But inside your heart’s burned to death
    Lost in the nowhere and in the memories
    The one’s that lifted you up and got you on your knees

    Pre-Chorus:
    After everything that you’ve been through
    There’s only one question left, why you?


    Chorus:
    It’s like I’m standing on a bridge
    And you’re down there in the water
    I’d do anything to get you out of it
    And to give you back your mother
    Why was it her, she’s no where to be found
    Why was it you, it burned your ground


    Verse 2:
    Your time is passing too fast and too slow
    Leaving you in the cold all alone
    Your road doesn’t allow you to have teary eyes
    You’re momma’s baby girl even on that night

    Repeat Pre-Chorus + Chorus

    Bridge:
    You wear your mother’s necklace and memorize her voice
    You wonder if you made a mistake but you didn’t have a choice
    You don’t wish it on anyone, but you still wonder: “why me”
    You’re drowning and I can’t reach you or give you what you need
    But I wish I could, yeah, I wish I could

    Repeat Chorus

    Hmm –hm, yeah

    Repeat Pre-Chorus

    This one is written for my dear friend Taylor Swift, she helped me through a togh time in my life.

    Someday

    Verse 1:
    You were there when I was alone
    You took my hand and brought me home
    You pointed to the pictures on my wall
    With the goofy grins and waterfalls

    Verse 2:
    Look at the one with you and me
    Back then we were only thirteen
    Before life became so complicated
    And so many people just left and faded

    Pre-Chorus 1:
    I don’t think you’ve been told
    I could give you the world
    Because I owe you my life

    Chorus 1:
    You make me laugh
    You make me cry
    You make me realize
    That everything is gonna be okay
    Someday
    Verse 3:
    The one over there with the six of us
    With our hand guns pointed at the camera
    We were so innocent way back when
    I f only we had known what we know now then

    Pre-chorus 2:
    I don’t think you’ve been told
    I could give you the world
    Because I owe you my life

    Chorus 2:
    You make me laugh
    You make me cry
    You make me realize
    That everything is gonna be okay
    Someday

    Everything is gonna change
    It’ll never be the same
    You’re the one that keeps me sane
    Telling me that everything is gonna be okay
    Someday


    Bridge:
    You brought me up when I was down
    When you told me “Come morning light, you and I’ll be safe and sound”
    I know I’m safe as long as you’re around
    So thank you

    Pre-chorus 3:
    I don’t think you’ve been told
    I could give you the world
    Because I owe you my life

    Chorus 3:
    You make me laugh
    You make me cry
    You make me realize
    That everything is gonna be okay
    Someday

    Everything is gonna change
    It’ll never be the same
    You’re the one that keeps me sane
    Telling me that everything is gonna be okay
    Someday

    This song is about my grandpa who died when I was 7 years old in a motorcycle accident. For some reason, I would always have this dream about once or twice a year. Instead of him dying in a motorcycle accident, he would be in his a burning house. In the dream, I would always be trying to save him but I never could in time. It killed me every time I'd wake up from that dream. Like I've said before, my biggest fear is losing someone that could have been saved...


    Only A Dream

    Verse 1
    It was my deepest fears come alive
    I couldn’t breathe I was so terrified
    The gray ashes sprinkled to the floor
    Tried to save you, but I couldn’t get you out that door

    Pre-Chorus
    My voice made no sound as I began to scream
    I woke up with a start, unable to breathe
    That’s when I realized, it was only just a dream

    Chorus
    The way you left was almost just as bad
    I wasn’t there, but I swear
    Some nights I can still hear the sounds of the crash
    I sobbed watching it on the news
    Did he not care that it wasn’t fair
    I just hope you knew how much I loved you whoa

    Verse 2
    The smoke built up in my throat
    Where in that house you’d disappeared, I didn’t know
    I knew I couldn’t let you get away
    But, in the end, you couldn’t be saved
    Pre-Chorus
    My voice made no sound as I began to scream
    I woke up with a start, unable to breathe
    That’s when I realized, it was only just a dream

    Chorus
    The way you left was almost just as bad
    I wasn’t there, but I swear
    Some nights I can still hear the sounds of the crash
    I sobbed watching it on the news
    Did he not care that it wasn’t fair
    I just hope you knew how much I loved you whoa

    Bridge
    That dream comes one or twice each year
    I always wake up, drowning in tears
    I talk out loud to you as if you were here
    That dream always ends with you in the burning house
    I have to watch it from the street as it falls down
    That’s not how it happened but

    Chorus
    The way you left was almost just as bad
    I wasn’t there, but I swear
    Some nights I can still hear the sounds of the crash
    I sobbed watching it on the news
    Did he not care that it wasn’t fair
    I just hope you knew how much I loved you whoa

    Outro
    I love you whoa and miss you whoa
    As real and haunting as it seems
    Sometimes it’s so hard to believe
    That it was only a dream

    My entry! It's not my best, but it is my latest song. So I hope you like it! :)

    The Fool

    Verse 1:
    You’re like a sparkling firefly
    Lighting up me and this night
    I hope I won’t catch on fire today
    ‘Cause I still have many things to say

    Verse
    I try my hardest to stand out
    And to say these words out loud
    Maybe they won’t reach you after all
    Maybe they’ll stay just words on my wall

    Chorus:
    But I won’t let you go if you’d want to leave
    You’re so beautiful and I’m helpless baby
    But I rather call it “meant-to-be” than crazy
    When I hear the raindrops on my roof
    I just wish there was some way to be with you
    Guess love wants me to play the fool


    Verse 3:
    All those other girls try to
    Get noticed and loved by you
    But I bet you only want the one
    So you better catch me before I’m gone

    Verse 2:
    Repeat this chorus and every verse
    Make your way through unfamiliar words
    Try to catch the meanings behind the tune
    And then you’ll know things like I love you

    Repeat Chorus

    Bridge:
    I hope we won’t become forgotten or lost
    Hope you won’t ever get out of love
    Hope you won’t see our fairytale as a tragedy
    And the dawn starts to break
    The animals and feelings wake
    As I try to understand what I need
    ‘Cause the fast become a blur
    When I found the sun in my fantasy world
    It might either burn me or light me up
    It’s your choice if you’d make me your love

    Repeat Chorus

    Outro:
    Guess love wants me to play the fool
    Hmm-oh, the fool, loving you

    For Round 2!

    In No Hurry
    Verse 1: I'm in my boots and a summer sundress
    You're in your football tee
    I know my hair looks like a mess
    But you tell me I look pretty
    I climb in shotgun and we drive to where the crickets sing
    You park the truck and I look at you
    And start thinkin'

    Chorus
    I'm in no hurry
    I'll wait here all day to
    Hear our song on the radio
    To listen to it play and
    I know when your long gone drivin' to where you think I'll never see
    But I'll know I've got your heart
    And it's ok if you have me

    Verse 2: Crank up the country loud
    An' you sit back and watch me sing
    You know my favorite songs and I know you favorite
    (giggle) Everything
    We start dancing and I know what's running through your head
    Cause the exact same thing's running through mine
    Yeah I don't want this night to end

    Chorus

    Bridge- I've waited a long time for this
    Yeah that flawless first kiss
    But hey



    Stay Beautiful!!

    Thank you so so so so much!!!!! Here's for Round 2!!


    Act Naturally

    Verse 1
    When he happens to unexpectedly pass me by
    I tend to suddenly lose my focus
    Whenever he stops in the hall to tell me hi
    I blush and hope he don’t notice
    Deep down inside I get all jittery
    I want him to know how I’ve been feeling
    Pre-Chorus
    My heart’s pounding oh so loud
    I’m surprised he don’t hear that thumping sound
    So many things like that happen
    When he’s around just like how

    Chorus
    Every time we talk I can’t stop myself from stuttering
    I’m always tripping over my own two feet
    I’m ducking my head every time I look up
    And our eyes awkwardly meet
    I blush when our hands accidently touch
    I hate it, I can’t describe in words how much
    And when I see you coming up to me
    So many thoughts race through my mind
    What to do, who to be, but lastly
    Just act naturally

    Verse 2
    I wish he would somehow give me a sign
    So I know I’m not just being a complete fool
    I’m lost in his beautiful dark brown eyes
    And he talks to me so relaxed and cool
    I wish I could be that way but I’m hopeless
    I’m too busy imagining getting a kiss

    Pre-Chorus
    He gives me a hug, my heart pounds
    I’m sure he can hear the thumping sound
    These things seem to happening
    More often now, just like how

    Chorus
    Every time we talk I can’t stop myself from stuttering
    I’m always tripping over my own two feet
    I’m ducking my head every time I look up
    And our eyes awkwardly meet
    I blush when our hands accidently touch
    I hate it, I can’t describe in words how much
    And when I see you coming up to me
    So many thoughts race through my mind
    What to do, who to be, but lastly
    Just act naturally

    Bridge
    We were on a walk, just talking
    Out of the blue you grabbed my arm and stopped
    I didn’t know what was happening
    You had a scared look on your face as you leaned in
    I couldn’t believe it, our first kiss
    I’d never felt anything more flawless
    When you pulled away, I listened to you say

    Chorus
    Every time we talk I can’t stop myself from stuttering
    I’m always tripping over my own two feet
    I’m ducking my head every time I look up
    And our eyes awkwardly meet
    I blush when our hands accidently touch
    I hate it, I can’t describe in words how much
    And when I see you coming up to me
    So many thoughts race through my mind
    What to do, who to be, but lastly
    Just act naturally

    Outro
    I’m never gonna forget that day
    I’ll never forget the look on your face
    Now I know you love me for me
    And you’re the only one who sees me
    When I’m just acting naturally

    my entry for round2
    heres one i wrote that i actually sent to the guy and waiting for a response from him(long story)hope you like it(;


    "Jump with me" by chelsea sowder


    every breath i take seems pointless
    when your not here
    i have something i must confess to you
    that you need to hear
    its like i'm completely lost
    when your not around
    I glance through the crowd
    hoping to see a familar face
    when i think back that is the only place
    i see you
    (chorus 1)
    I know its probably too late
    but something makes me hesitate
    when i'm trying to move on
    because i loved you all along
    (bridge)
    Yes we are friends thats all well and good
    (chorus 2)
    But shouldn't we give this a chance to be brilliant
    like it could
    to be like one of those songs
    and i know kingdoms have risen and
    fallen
    because of love
    but thats the chance im willing to
    take
    Because if i dont at least tell you
    it will be my greastest mistake
    (verse)
    i want to see you here
    holding my hand next to me
    for the forsee-able
    future you and me
    so it means something when i breathe
    Just take a chance and jump
    with
    me
    (bridge)
    we are friends that is all well and good
    (chorus 2)
    But shouldn't we give this a chance to be brilliant
    like it could
    to be like one of those songs
    and i know kingdoms have risen and
    fallen
    because of love
    but thats the chance im willing to
    take
    Because if i dont at least tell you
    it will be my greastest mistake
    (verse/ chorus hybird 3)
    One day i hope i can turn around and
    find you in town
    waiting there to
    jump
    with
    me
    (Verse chorus hybrid 4)
    i hope its not to late
    i don't even know if you feel the same
    But thats the chance im willing to
    take
    because if i don't it will be my greatest mistake
    (verse)
    You could have many reasons not too
    but if you found one reason, why you do
    then jump
    with
    me
    then jump
    with
    me
    give me a reason to breathe
    (outro)
    just jump
    with
    me
    just jump
    with
    me
    on the count of three

    thank you for reading this(:
    you know tomorrow from what you have learned today

    Here's my entry for Crush!

    Click here to listen!

    The One Needs Me

    Verse 1:
    You walk by and anyone can see
    That you're the wind beneath my wings
    You can't see you mean more than anything

    You flip your hair and look so cool
    And you stare right into her emerald eyes
    And when you look like that I want to cry

    Pre-chorus:
    Cos you're the one I'm in love with
    And you're the one that I need

    Chorus:
    You're the one fit for a princess
    You're the one upon a white steed
    You're the one who helps damsels in distress
    You're the one that I need
    You're the one who's a hero
    You're the one who needs me

    Verse 2:
    If we were together
    Then maybe you would see
    That you're better when you're with me

    When you're nearby
    I feel so many emotions
    Looking into your eyes is like swimming in the ocean

    Pre-chorus:
    Cos your eyes are so blue and so deep
    I feel like I'm drowning when you look at me

    Chorus

    Bridge:
    If we were together in a love that'll last forever
    Then maybe you'd see
    Just how much you need me

    Chorus
    I write songs (=

    Never entered a songwriting contest on here. I have been meaning to, but every time I have thought about trying, I have been too late. :( So, um...I guess I will enter for the 2nd round then. (But could people please let me know if they know of any other songwriting contests?? That would be super.... :) )


    Go Back To Bed
    Written By Caitlin Dull

    I love the
    way you move,
    I love your
    attitude,
    I love your
    every thought!
    I love your
    beautiful eyes
    when they
    stare into mine
    and make me
    speechless!
    Baby,
    you drive me
    crazy!

    Chorus:
    But you’re never gonna
    know how I feel
    ‘cause I will always be
    too damn scared
    to try!
    ‘Cause you’re the kind of guy
    that would deny me
    and to be honest
    I just don’t want to
    have to
    cry!
    Not again!
    Not after
    where I’ve been!
    No!
    I don’t
    want to fight
    so I guess
    that I might
    just
    quit while I’m
    ahead,
    and go back to
    bed!

    I love your
    dark brown hair,
    I love the
    way you stare
    when you’re lost
    in me!
    I love the
    way you lie,
    I love the
    way you cry,
    I love the way
    you try,
    Baby,
    not to love me!

    (Chorus)

    (Chorus)

    I love the
    way you move,
    I love your
    attitude,
    I love your
    every thought....

    Round 2, sorry it's kinda late

    Take My Breath Away

    Verse 1:
    I know you feel the same way
    I can see it in your eyes
    After all the phone call
    And all the smiles

    Verse 2:
    All the secret letters
    All the hours of laughter
    Don’t you think we should give it a try?
    This can only be right

    Pre-Chorus:
    The feel of your hands in mine
    How could we have been so blind?
    To not see what was just in front of us?

    Chorus:
    Because everything I wanted to hear
    You whispered in my ear
    You make me smile on my darkest days
    And you just simply take my breath away

    Verse 3:
    I called you up at 3am
    And you told me you loved me again and again
    And I knew everything was gonna be okay
    As long as you were in my heart to stay

    Pre-Chorus:
    The feel of your hands in mine
    How could we have been so blind?
    To not see what was just in front of us?

    Chorus:
    Because everything I wanted to hear
    You whispered in my ear
    You make me smile on my darkest days
    And you just simply take my breath away

    Bridge:
    Like the moon in the night sky
    Your blue eyes shined so bright
    You pulled me in and kissed my lips
    And I melted in your fingertips

    Chorus:
    Because everything I wanted to hear
    You whispered in my ear
    You make me smile on my darkest days
    And you just simply take my breath away

    Outro:
    You just simply take my breath away
    Oh, simply take my breath away
    You just take my breath away

    Verse 1:

    It's a bright and sunny day outside today
    Butterflies are fluttering around inside my tummy.
    My heart is pumping to the rythym of an old love song
    And I really wish you'd sing along

    Pre-Chorus:

    You ask me how I'm feeling
    You know that there is something on my mind
    Yes I know, you like her
    But are you with her in your head
    When you kiss her, is it cause you love her
    Or are you wishing it was me instead

    Chorus:

    The ocean in your deep blue eyes
    Makes me want to sail away
    To the depths of your heart
    To the depths of your heart
    I need your laugh to be the breath of fresh air that I need
    You're the most beautiful harmony to my melody
    You're my northern star
    And I need to know how you're feeling
    In the depths of your heart

    Verse 2:

    You know that I didn't sleep last night
    But do you know that I stayed up the whole time
    Wishing you were standing outside my window in the starry sky moonlight
    Inviting me into your arms, asking me to be your special someone
    I guess I didn't get that lucky

    Pre-Chorus:

    I don't know which way to go
    Because without you by my side
    Things get out of focus
    Do you even notice
    That I'm going out of my mind
    I'm right here waiting by the door
    Like I've done before
    You're everything I've ever wanted
    And so much more

    Chorus:

    The ocean in your deep blue eyes
    Makes me want to sail away
    To the depths of your heart
    To the depths of your heart
    I need your laugh to be the breath of fresh air that I need
    The harmony to my melody
    You're my northern star
    And I need to know how you're feeling
    In the depths of your heart

    Bridge:

    But now I see you walking my way
    With her on your arm
    The reality is setting in and I wish that I could shut it out
    How did we grow apart?
    We used to be like one
    And I'm wishing that I could tell you

    End Chorus:

    The ocean in your deep blue eyes
    Makes me want to sail away
    To the depths of your heart
    To the depths of your heart
    I need your laugh to be the breath of fresh air that I need
    The harmony to my melody
    You're my northern star
    And I need you to know how Im feeling
    In the depths of my heart

    This is for round 3! (:

    Superstar

    Heard all your songs, listen to them all the time, wear your t-shirt almost everyday, I love the way you make words rhyme, if I ever met you I'd be way to lost to know what to say.

    You're a superstar, living the dream, travelling far across the world, I may seem to be another fan, but maybe one day you'll meet me, and maybe you would see more than that to me, because i know you are more than just another, superstar.

    And I love your pair of pink sunglasses, the way you dance, the way you chance, your curly hair, everything. Always trying to figure out what colour your eyes are, I really love the way that you play your guitar just like that, just like that.

    You're a superstar, living the dream, travelling far across the world, I may seem to be another fan, but maybe one day you'll meet me, and maybe you would see more than that to me, because i know you are more than just another, superstar.

    You're going far, you've made it, watched you from the start, and now you're a superstar.

    You're a superstar, living the dream, travelling far across the world, I may seem to be another fan, but maybe one day you'll meet me, and maybe you would see more than that to me, because i know you are more than just another, superstar.

    You're a superstar, living the dream.
