    NO NO NO YOU CHANGED THE THEME I SPENT AN HOUR FOR THE OLD THEME

    Well whatever I'll enter anyway :/ I'm really proud of this song. It's called 2010.

    2010

    Verse 1
    When everybody's lovin' and inviting me in
    I'm saying "Remember, winter twenty-ten?"
    Then they all turn away and try to unsay
    The words that make me close my eyes and cry
    I say, it's okay, you've got a clean slate
    I'll forget about you by two thousand twenty-eight
    And that's when the flashbacks start
    All over again, they break my heart

    Chorus
    It's winter two thousand ten
    We're dancing round the Christmas lights
    You're there every second
    To keep me warm on cold, dark nights
    And I never imagined a Christmas without you
    But that's what I had in two zero one two

    Verse 2
    I've never fallen in love since
    But he comes over and asks me to dance
    I watch him remember that December
    He watches me close my eyes and cry
    I say, it's okay, you didn't know
    That was the best Christmas ever, I loved it so
    And that's when the flashbacks start
    Of summer twenty-eleven when you broke my heart

    Repeat Chorus

    Bridge 1
    I remember the silver necklace hiding, wrapped, under the tree
    I remember screaming and then you leaning over to kiss me
    I never want to lose those memories

    Part of Chorus
    It's winter two thousand ten
    We're dancing round the Christmas lights
    You're there every second
    To keep me warm on cold, dark nights

    Bridge 2
    I remember a week later, you kissed me at midnight
    I remember us at Times Square, freezing, but butterflies taking flight
    I never want to lose sight
    Baby, of you
    Baby, of you, yeah

    Repeat Chorus

    Outro
    Don't let me lose those memories of you
    Not after this lonely twenty one two

    Hey, I'm glad you changed the theme haha :) I'm no good at writing to a specific theme so yeah... here's my entry!

    Frostbitten Heart

    Ooh I’m halfway out of your heart
    In a city not a half a mile away
    Seeing pictures on the ground
    But I can’t remember the names

    Watching rain splash on my windows
    Each drop is full of pain
    Cause while it’s clear that I’m not with you
    I can never be away

    The mornings are getting colder
    Despite the summer breeze
    The ice caps may be melting
    But my heart is starting to freeze

    And I would say you’re on my mind
    About half of the time
    But the other half is filled with dreams
    That will only ever be mine

    Ooh I’m halfway into your arms
    When you try to pull away
    It’s like you can’t even hear
    The pleading words I say

    I begged that you’d forgive me
    For any wrongs I may have done
    Even though I’ll never forgive you
    For all the times you’ve tried to run

    But the mornings are getting colder
    Despite the summer breeze
    The ice caps may be melting
    But my heart is starting to freeze

    And I would say you’re on my mind
    About half of the time
    But the other half is filled with dreams
    That will only ever be mine

    Oh starting in my toes all the way to my nose
    Losing feeling in my feet then my arms and my knees
    The cold creeps fast pulsing inside my veins
    Grabbing on to my heart and I’m gasping in pain
    Climax, think fast, run from hate or cling to faith
    Oh it’s not the same, it’s not the same

    Cause the mornings have gotten colder
    Even with the summer breeze
    Oh if only my heart were melting
    After all this time in the heat

    I’ve tried, I’ve tried and I’ve tried
    To shut you out of my mind
    But I still feel this cold that bites
    All of the time

    You threw me out
    Written By: Richard Dye

    I never thought I would see you again,
    But there you were in front of me.
    I cracked a smile as I seen your face.
    But you turned your head to try and hide your disgrace.
    You threw me out when you let him in
    You threw me out when you let him in
    The night was cold and you thought I wasn’t there
    The scent of cheatin’ was in the air.
    You threw me out when you let him in
    You threw me out when you let him in
    Your ex showed up in a fit
    You both took what you could get.
    You threw me out when you let him in
    You threw me out when you let him in
    And now you want me back again.

    Hiiiii!

    I'd like to enter please!

    My song is called 'Old Love Song' and it's about the first time I felt butterflies about someone after I had my first heartbreak. It was a magical and beautiful feeling, and you can listen to the song here (because I sing and play guitar too): www.soundcloud.com/daisymairichards/oldlovesong and here are the lyrics written out too:

    Recently my dreams all fall apart at the seams,
    And they stretch themselves out, the possibilities,
    And I'm not so afraid,
    If it doesn't go my way.

    And there's a box of memories,
    Hidden away.
    All my hopes and my fears,
    Tucked under the bed,
    Photographs of,
    The things that I love.

    And I'm not scared,
    Of all of my nightmares,
    Didn't know I was taking a chance,
    Until you asked me to dance.

    Now I'm spinning around,
    Don't hit the ground,
    Please don't let me down,
    Can't turn back now.
    Like an old love song,
    On the radio,
    You'll still sing along,
    And you just won't know,
    This one's about you.
    Oh, you.

    So you sing me sweet songs,
    With soft melodies,
    And we're both wide awake,
    But this feels like a dream,
    And I won't say a word,
    Though I want to be heard.
    And maybe it's a game,
    Some fictional scene,
    'Cause I hear you say my name,
    But not what you mean,
    I keep running around,
    Trying to figure you out.

    And I wonder,
    Are you pulling me under,
    The sheets with your spells?
    I can't tell.

    When I'm spinning around,
    Don't hit the ground,
    Please don't let me down,
    Can't turn back now.
    Like an old love song,
    On the radio,
    You'll still sing along,
    And you just won't know,
    This one's about you.
    Oh, you.

    Do you tell your friends about me, do you tell them I'm the one?
    Look into my eyes, is it just me or do you come undone?
    Is there a song you listen to and you can't help but close your eyes?
    Have you been wishing for a song like this, the whole time?
    The whole time?

    Are you spinning around?
    You won't hit the ground,
    I won't let you down,
    We won't turn back now.
    And you'll play this song,
    On your radio,
    We'll both sing along,
    And I hope you'll know,
    It was about you.

    Thankyou so so so much, I hope you like it! Please message me if you have any questions or anything!

    Hey! I'm entering a Christmas song because I don't get to use them very often!! Haha I know it's a little past Christmas now buuuut, lets just pretend that it's Christmas Eve so this song can come out of it's hiding hole.
    Anywayyys I hope you like it! :)

    <3You're The Reason<3

    Verse 1

    Lay back, stare out the window, snow is falling gracefully down...
    the fireplace crackles in the corner as I watch a white blanket cover the town,
    The doorbell rings, makes me wanna sing as I try to calm down and try to stop myself from jumping around,
    absolutely freaking out,
    It's you, you greet me with a hug and kiss,
    I've been waiting the whole night for this,
    You drag me under the mistletoe,
    grab my hips and kiss me... please don't lest go...

    Chorus

    Darlin, I want you to know,
    that you're the reason, this is my favorite season,
    Oh, you're the sparkle in the snow,
    Oh you're the one who makes the Christmas lights glow,
    Oh darlin, you're the reason I hang up extra mistletoe,

    Verse 2

    You walk over turn the radio on,
    coinsidinsely it's a slow s-o-o-ong,
    you look at me and I nod yes,
    you whimsically twirl me around like a princess,
    and now I'm off in my own world,
    Shaky knees, my head is spinning,
    thoughts all swirled and I can't stop smiling as you hold me close,
    I giggle and loose my balance,
    you catch my swiftly from behind,
    And I stay in your arms for a while,

    Pre- Chorus

    I hope you realize, I can't imagine today without you,

    Chorus

    Darlin, I want you to know,
    that you're the reason, this is my favorite season,
    Oh, you're the sparkle in the snow,
    Oh you're the one who makes the Christmas lights glow,
    Oh darlin, you're the reason I hang up extra mistletoe,

    Bridge

    You're the reason this is my, best holiday,
    I fall into your arms like the snow on the ground fell,
    when I look into your eyes I can't help but dwell,
    And I can tell you feel the same as well,

    Pre-Chorus

    And I know I've said it before, but you're the best present I could ever ask for,

    Chorus

    Darlin, I want you to know,
    that you're the reason, this is my favorite season,
    Oh, you're the sparkle in the snow,
    Oh you're the one who makes the Christmas lights glow,
    Oh darlin, you're the reason I hang up extra mistletoe,

    Outro

    You're the reason this is the best holiday,
    You're the reason I hang extra mistletoe,
    You're the reason for my happiness, I hope you know...

    XOXO ShelbeeSwifty :)

    This one is right out of my song book :)

    Reckless

    Secret Message: Just another Romeo and Juliet

    Two teens
    Reckless and wild
    Sneaking out late to see each other
    For just one kiss
    And one "I love you"

    (Wild and young
    Dangerous and reckless)

    A boy and a girl
    They were made for each other
    Both blinded by love
    for one another
    Their love is reckless and wild
    But they'll do anything to show it

    Her parents don't approve of him and
    his worn out jeans and sleeve tattoos
    His sister doesn't care of her
    and her long blonde hair
    But they don't care
    Their love is theirs

    (Wild and young
    Dangerous and reckless)

    A boy and a girl
    They were made for each other
    Both blinded by love
    for one another
    Their love is reckless and wild
    But they'll do anything to show it

    One July summer night,
    She was up in her room
    Getting ready to sneak out
    But there was no need,
    He was already there with
    A diamond ring

    A boy and a girl
    They were made for each other
    Both blinded by love
    for one another
    Their love is reckless and wild
    But they'll do anything to show it

    Because their love is reckless

    Here's my entry for Round 1! :D

    Believe

    I know that the places we want to go
    The things we want to see
    Can feel so out of reach
    Like the millions of stars up in the sky
    And with every dream we make
    It seems like we're taking a step back
    Cause nothing seems to come true but

    Chorus:
    If you can see beyond the ocean blue
    To a faraway place just for me and you
    All that you have dreamed and never seen
    Is just one arm's length out of reach
    And if you follow your heart you will see
    That nothing you dream is impossible
    If you just believe

    Princesses, Fairies and dwarfs
    They're all on our front door
    If we can see the possibilities
    That if we try and climb the mountain
    Someday we'll see the other side
    Just keep on going, leave your mind open
    And say the words that have never been spoken
    Cause

    Chorus

    Believe in destiny
    And all that's in-between
    Cause one day you will see
    That everything falls into place
    Like the final puzzle piece
    It'll be complete

    Chorus

    Believe in you and me
    All the possibilities
    Princesses and fairies
    Believe in destiny
    Oh, oh, oh
    If you just believe


    I Spoke Now on July 14th, 2011 and June 14th, 2013 will come back to me in burning RED

    Here's mine! It's about Jacob and Renesmee from Breaking Dawn. Please PM me when the results are up!

    Verse 1

    Whispers of love
    Whispers of hope
    Whispers of silent dreaming
    Put your hand to my cheek, baby girl
    And show me what you see…

    Chorus

    Come, come with me to a clearing far away
    Where a young girl catches the first flake of snow
    Come, come with me, where a wolf stands guard
    And the world is at peace just for now

    Verse 2

    Whispers of cheer
    Whispers of joy
    Whispers of innocent wonder
    Put your hand to my cheek, baby girl
    And show me what you see…

    Chorus

    Come, come with me to a clearing far away
    Where a young girl catches the first flake of snow
    Come, come with me, where a wolf stands guard
    And the world is at peace just for now

    Bridge

    Just a girl and a wolf,
    So different, and yet the same
    A beautiful magical love –
    But how long can they play this treacherous game?

    Chorus

    Come, come with me to a clearing far away
    Where a young girl catches the first flake of snow
    Come, come with me, where a wolf stands guard
    And the world is at peace just for now
