Songwriting contest by Brittneyswiftly14

Wed, Dec 26, 2012 at 2:30 PM

Apparently I accidentally deleted the songwriting contest forum I just made, and I sincerely apologize, so here are all the rules you need to know:
There will be 7 rounds, round 7 being the final round. Each round will last a week, so hopefully everyone will enter in time. It may be a challenge, since each round will have a inspiration theme song to base their song off of, so you may need to do some research. For example:
Round 2: Open
Theme Song for Inspiration: Carry On by Fun.
1st place (5 points):
2nd place (4 points):
3rd place (3 points):
*bonus (anyone who entered the round can earn these points, including 1st- 3rd place):
Fearless Award (2 points) (standout song, great story, fearless):
Most Beautiful Song (2 points) (beautiful lyrics, inspiring, tear worthy):
So, in this case the theme is to carry on and let you past be the sound of your feet on the ground.

There will be a leader board, and it will be up after Round 1 is finished.
Here are some rules:
- you cannot enter a song more than once
- you may co write a song, but give credit to the other writer
- please no language/profanity
- if you enter too late the song most likely will not count, depending if I've posted the results
Reminder:
- I will post results the day after the final day of the round
- I will post round info and results in a comment below, not in the body.
- If you'd like to make graphic, please leave a comment below. I'd like for everyone who entered and participated to have their own graphic at the end, winner or not. If you're up for that job please comment below.
- anyone can enter any round, except for round 7
- the seventh round will only be for the top 5 on the leader board
- enter your song in a contest below
Sorry if anyone commented on the last forum, hopefully you can find the new one. If you have any questions, leave them below. Have fun and thanks! :)

    My entry!

    The Best Thing I've Ever Had

    Verse 1:
    You say 'Hey'
    And I look behind me
    Then I realise
    You're talking to me

    I can't believe it
    After all these weeks
    You finally know
    That you make my knees go weak

    Pre-chorus:
    You are my cosmic twin
    You send my head in a spin

    Chorus:
    Cos you're the one for me
    And I can't believe you're mine
    I thought you'd never see
    After all this time
    But now we're together
    In a love that'll last forever
    I can't believe it's real
    But I guess it must be true
    Cos when I say I love you
    You say 'I love you too'
    And there's no turning back
    Cos you're the best thing I've ever had.


    Verse 2:
    We walk, hand in hand
    We don't need to talk
    Cos we understand
    Each other's minds

    I want you forever
    And that won't change
    Cos there's nothing better
    Than you, than you

    Pre-chorus:
    You are my cosmic twin
    You send my head in a spin

    Chorus:
    Cos you're the one for me
    And I can't believe you're mine
    I thought you'd never see
    After all this time
    But now we're together
    In a love that'll last forever
    I can't believe it's real
    But I guess it must be true
    Cos when I say I love you
    You say 'I love you too'
    And there's no turning back
    Cos you're the best thing I've ever had.


    Bridge:
    I want to shout it out loud
    That you love me now

    Chorus:
    Cos you're the one for me
    And I can't believe you're mine
    I thought you'd never see
    After all this time
    But now we're together
    In a love that'll last forever
    I can't believe it's real
    But I guess it must be true
    Cos when I say I love you
    You say 'I love you too'
    And there's no turning back
    Cos you're the best thing I've ever had.

    Hopefully this fits, if you think about it in terms of the line "you are the best thing that's ever been mine" I think it works okay :)

    Coming Home

    Blue eyes and a scruffy smile
    He’s got a way that can drive me wild
    My tongue is tied and my cheeks are flushed
    The only man that can make me blush

    Every laugh every glance or stare
    I think I’d follow him anywhere
    A hug a kiss or just a fleeting look
    He can read me like a picture book

    And I feel like
    My world is slowly spinning
    But I realize
    My feet are still on solid ground
    And I wonder
    How I could be this happy
    This love is everlasting joy

    My eyes are wet and I’ve lost the race
    Feeling down living in disgrace
    A brush of skin and my mind goes numb
    My heart is soaring and I’m overcome

    Lying here I feel complete
    Mingled sweat and two heartbeats
    I’ve never been this comfortable
    I’ve never felt this wonderful

    And I feel like
    My world is slowly spinning
    But I realize
    My feet are still on solid ground
    And I wonder
    How I could be this happy
    This love is everlasting joy

    The sparks are flying my lips are smiling
    After all these years of failures and trying
    Of crying, of lying, implying, denying

    Miscommunications and misinterpretations
    Anger and confusion, hope and disillusion

    Your arms are here and we’re wrapped in each other
    Drowning in blue and a love undercover
    Cause baby, here we are

    And I feel like
    My world is slowly spinning
    But I realize
    My feet are still on solid ground
    And I wonder
    How I could be this happy
    This love is everlasting joy

    And I feel like
    My heart is going crazy
    But I realize
    Your eyes are holding steady
    And I know
    How I could be this happy
    This love is everlasting joy

    Everlasting joy
    And I know that I’m coming home
