    My entry, round 1:

    This is 100% true. I used to live in the rented out part of a house, and the girls who lived in the other part became kind of like sisters to me. Times changed, we moved, I didn't see them again. Until 5 years later... When I was paying for my magazine... I realized that the girl behind the till was my favourite sister...... So here's a song I wrote about it.



    Girl At The Till

    Verse 1:
    Long lazy summer days
    You, your sisters and me
    Lying on the grass on beach towels
    As happy as kids can be

    I looked up to you
    Like I looked up to the stars
    You were always here, always near
    Never too far

    Pre-chorus:
    And now you're looking at me like that
    It all comes flooding back

    Chorus:
    All those days you looked after me
    I was seven and you were fourteen
    You treated me like a little sister
    Now you're grown up, on your gap year
    Haven't seen you since you disappeared
    And as I'm paying for my magazine
    I run my fingers through my hair, stand perfectly still
    And then you say my name and I realise, you're the girl at the till

    Verse 2:
    I remember your room
    How it almost had two floors
    And you hung little glass beads
    In front of your door

    I wanted to be just like you
    Cos to me you were so cool
    I loved that you treated me grown-up
    And listened to my tales of school

    Pre-chorus:
    And now you're looking at me like that
    The memories come flooding back

    Chorus
    All those days you looked after me
    I was seven and you were fourteen
    You treated me like a sister
    Now you're grown up, on your gap year
    Haven't seen you since you disappeared
    And as I'm paying for my magazine
    I run my fingers through my hair, stand perfectly still
    And then you say my name and I realise, you're the girl at the till


    Bridge:
    Then that day we moved away
    Saw you once again but that was it
    I thought of you on your birthday
    And remembered all the things we did

    Pre-chorus:
    And now you're looking at me like that
    I remember you always had my back

    Chorus:
    All those days you looked after me
    Never said I was too old for barbie
    You treated me like a little sister
    Now you're grown up, on your gap year
    Haven't seen you since you disappeared
    And as I'm paying for my magazine
    I run my fingers through my hair, stand perfectly still
    And then you say my name and I realise, you're the girl at the till

    My entry :) I know I have no hope up against JJ13 but it's worth a try. Please pm me results

    I Know Better

    From the start I could tell
    that you were bad news looking for a trouble
    but you stood in my way
    and I had no choice

    And I've had enough of this
    it's crazy and spiralling out of control
    We can't be like this
    when you tell me you've love me forever
    but I know better


    When you play your games like that, it's so wrong
    I said goodbye on our first hello
    and I walked away on our first day, on the first page of our story

    Chorus


    Bridge:
    And you sing melodies but the words don't make sense
    and you give me clues but they don't match up
    and I'm sitting thinking about you
    and all we've been through
    and I'm just waiting for the breakup

    Chorus




    ^
    All made by me :)

    Here is my entry, hope you like it! Love, staybeautiful137

    ONLY DAY ONE
    By: staybeautiful137, written 12/26/12

    First touch, first kiss,
    First glance at you
    You smile, I blush
    Not knowing what to do

    This is only day one of forever
    Hopes still flying high
    My heart is beating faster
    As I see the milky way in your eyes

    CHORUS:
    Hey darling what can I say
    I've never felt like this before
    Flooding warmth and tingling skin
    Don't know if I should be wanting more
    But your lips are cherry blossoms
    And your hands are mine to hold
    This is only day one of forever
    And your magic will never get old

    I remember when I first met you
    Downtown in those ripped up jeans
    I was a shy little girl but you pulled me in
    As I started to wonder what love means

    Your arms are now my safe haven
    Making your heartbeat match with mine
    This is a whole new world for us
    Trying to walk down love's fine line

    CHORUS:
    So hey darling what can I say
    I've never felt like this before
    Flooding warmth and tingling skin
    Don't know if I should be wanting more
    But your lips are cherry blossoms
    And your hands are mine to hold
    This is only day one of forever
    And your magic will never get old

    BRIDGE
    I hope we never say goodbye
    Cause we just said hello
    Getting to forever is quite a long ways
    But your heart is all I want to know

    CHORUS
    Hey darling what can I say
    I've never felt like this before
    Flooding warmth and tingling skin
    Don't know if I should be wanting more
    But your lips are cherry blossoms
    And your hands are mine to hold
    This is only day one of forever
    And your magic will never get old

    I love how you entice me
    And I love how you embrace me
    Darling its only day one of forever
    And we will always be together.

    Hey I'll enter! This is a song I wrote out of a rant (kind of) you see I was in another song writing contest and one of the round themes was "Romeo and Juliet" and every one was writing love songs which is typical but Romeo and Juliet isn't really that romantic nor should they be looked at as a model couple. I mean Romeo married Juliet as a rebound and Juliet married Romeo out of spite for her parents. What's romantic about that? So this song would of been from Juliet's perspective had she had a reasonable thought in her head.

    Oh Romeo

    you don't Look at me
    the way you lOok at her
    she made you hurt so bad
    yet you were conVinced she was the bEst thing you had
    when you looked at me did you See what you wanted?
    if i left the ball would you still Hang around?
    oh romeO am i your rebound?

    breaking hearts is what yoU're known for
    and there's troubLe in everything you do
    yet i'm waiting right by my Door
    wonderiNg if there's any heart in you
    why did i allow myself To fall in love with you

    there was a guy
    who wanted to give me the moon and sky
    he wasn't what i wanted
    But somehow he still leaves me haunted
    why didn't i listen to the voice of rEason?
    did you sweep me off my feeT just to watch me fall?
    oh Romeo do you really know it all?

    breAking hearts is what you're known for
    and there's trouble in everythinG you do
    yet i'm waiting rIght by my door
    wondering if there's any heart in you
    why did i allow myself to fall in love with you

    you come so easily to me
    i only wish you Could see
    look at the mess we're making
    is it worth the risk were taking?
    i would die for you if you wanted me to
    would you die for me if you knew the truth?

    breaking hearts is what you're known for
    and there's trouble in everything you do
    yet i'm waiting right by my door
    wondering if there's any heart in you
    you're just a montague i shouldn't be in love with you
    now you've left me with this great big scar
    oh romeo i think that you've gone too far
    my love i think we should just let it go tonight
    You're beautiful every little piece love

    My entry for round 1
    That Song:

    (Verse)
    I was sitting on the chair
    And I had nothing to do
    The sun is shining outside
    But I don't want to go
    I turned the radio on and suddenly I heard that song
    I grabbed my guitar to play along
    Yeah if this was a love song

    (Chorus)
    I heard that song on the radio
    Asked myself what I wanna do
    Sitting here and blame myself
    Or go outside and find another girl
    But I always remember that song

    (Verse)
    I was thinking about what happened
    So manny things to fight for
    The sun isn't shining for me now
    But it's gonna be alright
    Then I turned the radio on and I heard that song
    I trying to sing along
    Oh if this was a sad song

    (Chorus)
    I heard that song on the radio
    Asked myself what I wanna do
    Sitting here and blame myself
    Or go outside and find another girl
    But I always remember that song

    (Bridge)
    Now it was a love song
    Just listening to it and you see yourself

    (Chorus)
    I heard that song on the radio
    Asked myself what I wanna do
    Sitting here and blame myself
    Or go outside and find another girl
    But I always remember that song

    Yeah I do
    I remember that song
    Always cause Trouble when I walk in

    Here's my entry for Round 1! :)
    I just wrote this one today!

    The Reason Why

    cold air, red cheeks
    i wonder what you'll think of me
    as i knock on your door
    it feels jusT like all those times before
    back when you were mine and i was yours
    but it's not that anymore

    Chorus:
    this is wHen i start cry
    and wish we'd never said goodbye
    but the reasons I could never find
    they're all right there in front of my eyes
    cause you're the reason why
    the reason why it all turned to lieS

    i flashback to those beautIful days
    riding in your pickup truck and kisSing in the rain
    the "i love yous" and saying i do too
    and i still remember your hand in mine
    how everYthing just felt so right

    Chorus

    so maybe i shOuld've seen the signs
    but everything just felt so right
    and i wanted to still believe
    you were the only one for me
    but she was always there in the back of yoUr mind
    and she's the Reason why, you're the reason Why
    it all turned to lies

    Chorus

    and so i take a deep breAth
    and knock on youR door
    just like all those times before
    but this time i'm Not stayIng
    just my haNdwritten note
    that i left lyinG on your floor
    just like how you left me months before

    and that note i left at your door
    it says "you're the reason why
    it all turned to lies"


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

    I'm Not

    You could as me to dance
    but I'd be crazy
    cause I can't dance like them
    or you could ask me to write a story
    but if you want it published
    then don't ask me

    I'm not a writer, I'm not a dancer
    I couldn't sweep you off your feet
    I'm not a thinker, I'm not a speaker
    don't leave this to me


    You could stand up and say
    that girl, she's worth it
    but I'm not worth their time
    or you could ask me to write a song
    but if you want a number one
    then don't ask me

    cause I'm not a linguist, I'm not a poet
    I couldn't blow your mind one day
    I'm not so good with, English and Science
    don't leave this to me


    I won't change the world someday
    like everyone says you will
    I'm just another runaway
    who's scared away her skills
    I'm not good enough, I'm not gonna change
    but if I could I'd do it anyway


    To be a writer, or a dancer
    or sweep you off your feet
    maybe a linguist, even a poet
    she'd say
    just leave this to me


    cause I'm gonna change the world someday
    October 22nd 2012, the world turns RED.

    this is my entry, hope you like it!:)
    A million miles


    VERSE 1- And I, flashback to the night,
    You and I, all alone at midnight
    Our voices rise, anger in our eyes
    Our very first fight

    Packing of bags, slamming of doors
    Running off into the night
    Tears in my eyes, left all alone
    Under the streetlight

    PRE CHORUS- I'm wasting my days, your slipping away
    I drop everything now
    I need you back somehow

    CHORUS- And I would drive all night
    Just to get you in my sights
    And I would jump on the train
    To stop you getting away
    And every stop sign I would knock down
    Through very city every village every small town
    Cause I'd dri-i-i-i-ive
    A million miles

    VERSE 2- I think back in regret, of all the things I said
    In the heat of the moment
    I stare at the pictures, that cover the walls
    Stare at my phone, your ignoring my calls
    You won't pick up, but I won't give up

    The words I screamed, were not what they seemed
    And in my dreams you come back to me
    The words you said sting my mind, like a swarm of bees
    So I drop my phone and I grab my keys!

    PRE CHORUS- I let you get away, my mistake
    Now it's my chance to take

    CHORUS- And I would drive all night
    Just to get you in my sights
    And I would jump on the train
    To stop you getting away
    And every stop sign I would knock down
    Through very city every village every small town
    Cause I'd dri-i-i-i-ive
    A million miles

    BRIDGE- A million miles, and more
    A million miles, to your door
    But baby will you let me in?
    I'll love you through thick and thin
    Oh baby please let me in once more
    Cause baby to get to your door...

    CHORUS- I had to drive all night
    Just to get you in my sights
    And I came all this way
    To tell you I love you in every way
    And baby all that I know now
    Is that your something I can't live without
    Cause I'd dri-i-i-i-ive
    A million miles

    LAST CHORUS- And I would drive all night
    Just to keep you by my side
    And I walk all the way
    If that's what it would take
    And every stop sign I would knock down
    Through very city every village every small town
    Cause I would driiiiive
    And I would driiiiiive
    A million miles
    A million miles to you
    A million miles
    A million miles for you

    A million miles, that led me to you
    A million miles.
    Thank you Taylor, you made things change for me...

    Hey:-) This song is called "Tennessee"... hope you like it:)



    I don't know how to ask for what I want
    Some people call it crazy but I just call it maybe
    Too many times I let it slip away
    I'm chasing after dark light and it's taking up my time
    One a.m., thinking back to

    Blue jean days
    Mistakes made
    Things I can't control and time I'm gonna take
    There's too much world I guess to see
    So I've gotta find my place in Tennessee

    I've got too much ambition some say
    Life up on my shoulders, the days are getting colder
    I can't fall back
    I know I'm chasing lost time just tryna make up my mind
    So I could remember years of

    Blue jean days
    Mistakes made
    Things I can't control and time its gonna take
    There's too much world I guess to see
    So I've gotta find my place in Tennessee

    I don't know how far a
    Guitar and a dream can get you
    900 miles don't seem so far
    When you've got nowhere to be
    So don't ask me bout

    Blue jean days
    Mistakes made
    Things I could control and time it's gonna take
    There's too much world I guess to see
    So I've gotta find my place
    Gotta find my place
    On
    Blue jean days
    And Mistakes made
    Things I can't control and time a dreams gonna take
    There's life I'm gonna see
    So I've gotta find my place
    Gotta find my place
    Gotta find my place
    In Tennessee
    Tennessee
    Oh yeah
    Tennessee
    Lovelovelove

    Already a new one called: I Hate Love

    What if it didn't happened
    And what if you loved me!
    I think I felt better
    Now once again I've no luck
    It always been this way
    But I never forget you

    I hate love
    Why I've no luck in love
    Always when I loved someone she didn't love me but somebody else
    And always being rejected
    Now I think I don't want to fall in love again
    I hate love

    I kept trying every time
    But I'm tired now
    What if I had that luck
    Always keep thinking like that
    But that's over now
    I never want to fall in love again

    I hate love
    Why I've no luck in love
    Always when I loved someone she didn't love me but somebody else
    And always being rejected
    Now I think I don't want to fall in love again
    I hate love

    You'll never know how I feel
    Always saying I'm sorry I can't

    I hate love
    Why I've no luck in love
    Always when I loved someone she didn't love me but somebody else
    And always being rejected
    Now I think I don't want to fall in love again
    I hate love

    This is a song I wrote for my best guy friend, I have a huge crush on him but the thing is he has this girlfriend and she's so perfect, blah blah blah. I'm honestly heart broken that they're together, but if he's happy, I'm happy...but my heart however is still in pieces.

    You and I

    Verse 1:
    6 Months together
    You and her are forever
    And you and I will never
    Be together
    Unless there is a change
    In this sleepy weather

    Pre Chorus:
    If you ever loose your way
    I'll help you find it again

    Chorus:
    You and I were almost perfect
    Until I went and wrecked
    Everything we could've been
    I'm reaching out for you
    But you're so caught up in her
    I need you here and I need you now
    Just get here somehow

    Verse 2:
    Don't even make a sound
    Until you come walking
    Through that door
    The storm outside
    Is fading away into midnight
    I know she broke you down
    But you'll leave me broken now

    Pre Chorus:
    If you ever loose your way
    I'll help you find it again

    Chorus:
    You and I were almost perfect
    Until I went and wrecked
    Everything we could've been
    I'm reaching out for you
    But you're so caught up in her
    I need you here and I need you now
    Just get here somehow

    Bridge:
    There seems to be no change
    In this sleepy weather
    You and I will never be together
    I just want you to know before you go
    I love you more then she ever will

    End Verse:
    You and I were almost perfect
    Until I wrecked everything
    We could've been



    Thanks Daya for the beautiful signature!!! [=

    "A Little Time"

    Your blue eyes are like the ocean
    Dangerous at first
    But then you smile
    And the clockwork's reversed

    I'd count every single freckle on your face
    If you wanted me to
    But she probably has,
    With all the time she spends with you

    The way you look at me makes me feel at home
    But then I remember, that you're not alone

    You're the kind of boy that I can't regret
    Falling in love with when we first met
    'Cause everything you do, whether right or wrong
    Is ma-agic, ma-agic
    I don't even care what we're gonna do
    As long as I get a little time with you,
    A little time with you

    I love the way you
    Know who you are
    But you've got a girl
    While I'm counting my scars

    She thinks it's funny
    But you carry my books
    When she's not around
    And give me the sweetest looks

    The way you look at her makes me feel alone
    But then I remember, that you'll make me feel at home

    You're the kind of boy that I can't regret
    Falling in love with when we first met
    'Cause everything you do, whether right or wrong
    Is ma-agic, ma-agic
    I don't even care what we're gonna do
    As long as I get a little time with you,
    A little time with you

    We'll be in algebra, and I say "x=2"
    But what I really mean to say is "Love me like I love you"

    You're the kind of boy that I can't regret
    Falling in love with when we first met
    'Cause everything you do, whether right or wrong
    Is ma-agic, ma-agic
    I don't even care what we're gonna do
    As long as I get a little time with you,
    A little time with you

    Please PM me when the results are up!!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR 2ND!


    Round 2:


    This is a song I wrote about someone who ended things and wishes they hadn't.

    {-Hidden Message: This. Is. Over-}

    Click here to listen!


    You Slammed The Door


    Verse 1:
    You'll stop me falling down
    Keep my feet planted firmly on the ground
    You'll keep my world spinning around
    And you'll help me through this

    You'll stop the tears before they fall
    You'll be there every time I call
    And when I hold your hand I know I'll stand tall
    Cos with you I can do anything

    Pre-Chorus:
    Oh, remember the laughter
    Oh, remember the happily ever after
    Where'd it all go wrong?

    Chorus:
    Oh, when we slammed the door on our love
    Oh, when the storm came in we gave up
    Oh, you were meant to be the key to my heart
    Oh, oh, the world tore us apart
    And now we are no more
    Cos you slammed the door

    Verse 2:
    You've left me all alone
    Now I can't call your arms home
    Because you're gone, I should've known
    You wouldn't stay for me

    So now I sit on the floor
    Keeping my eyes on the door
    Hoping you'll walk right in like you did before
    But that would be too easy

    Pre-Chorus:
    Oh, remember the promises we made
    Oh, I watched us start to fade
    Why'd it have to end this way?

    Chorus:
    Oh, when we slammed the door on our love
    Oh, when the storm came in we gave up
    Oh, you were meant to be the key to my heart
    Oh, oh, the world tore us apart
    And now we are no more
    Cos you slammed the door

    Bridge:
    Oh, you slammed the door in my face
    Disappeared without a trace
    Left me with the broken pieces of my heart
    Trying to tape them back together
    After they'd been torn apart

    Chorus:
    Oh, when we slammed the door on our love
    Oh, when the storm came in we gave up
    Oh, you were meant to be the key to my heart
    Oh, oh, the world tore us apart
    And now we are no more
    Cos you slammed the door

    Oh, oh, oh, you slammed the door

    Oh my gosh thank you so much for 1st!:D here my entry for 'heartbreak' x
    love in the dark

    Verse 1: frost covered the ground that night
    i can't forget it, no matter how hard i try
    engraved in memory for all of time
    your words, still bouncing round in my mind
    your footsteps pounded my heart as you ran
    away from me, from us, from all we had

    Chorus: and ever since then, ice has taken over my heart
    and ever since then, i have been falling apart
    without you, im nothing but empty heart, empty arms
    without your love to guide me home
    i'm lost alone in the dark
    cause i never stopped loving you
    even when you broke my heart
    and now it's just love, love in the dark.

    Verse 2: still, i find myself thinking about you
    about that night, i watched as our love fell through
    even now that you're gone, left nothing but your ghost behind
    when i search and i search, darling its still you i find
    and i wonder, if you hadn't run scared at the slightest sign of trouble
    would you still be here in my arms, instead of this rubble?

    Chorus: and ever since then, ice has taken over my heart
    and ever since then, i have been falling apart
    without you, im nothing but empty heart, empty arms
    without your love to guide me home
    i'm, lost alone in the dark
    cause i never stopped loving you
    even when you broke my heart
    and now it's just love, love in the dark.

    Bridge: and now i wonder! if you ever loved me like i love you!
    oh and baby, i wonder if i will ever forgive you
    i can't forget all the times that i cried!
    cause you're still here like a thorn in my side!

    Chorus: and ever since then, ice has taken over my heart
    and ever since then, i have been slowly falling apart!
    without you, i am nothing!
    i am a frozen heart
    without your love to guide me home
    i'll be lost forever, never forgetting
    cause you left before i could even tell you what you meant to me
    and now you'll never see...

    that i never stopped loving you
    even when you broke my heart
    and now it's just love, love, love in the cold and lonely dark!

    Chorus: and ever since then, ice has taken over my heart
    and ever since then, i have been falling apart
    without you, im nothing but empty heart, empty arms
    without your love to guide me home
    i'm, lost alone in the dark
    cause i never stopped loving you
    even when you broke my heart
    and now it's just love, love in the dark.

    Outro: frost covered the ground that night.

    Thank you Taylor, you made things change for me...

    this is my entry for Heartbreak. its about a marriage that is torn apart cause the husband cheats. Its in the perspective of the wife and she catches him doing it and so its just a about how she feels broken.

    You were my one and only

    Flipping pages of an old photo album
    I looking at our faces on our wedding day
    The shear look of joy and happiness
    I guess photos can be deceiving
    Cause all along you were weren't wanting me

    I thought we were bound together with our love
    But that bow is becoming loose
    I thought you were my one and only
    But did you change your mind mid sentence?
    Cause one moment you love me then her then another
    We were happy and then you tore it apart

    I turn the lock and something felt missing
    Didn't know what till I opened the door
    And I saw you crumbling the memories
    We were yet to have and now never will
    You left and I was by my lonesome like just before

    I thought we were bound together with our love
    But that bow is becoming loose
    I thought you were my one and only
    But did you change your mind mid sentence?
    Cause one moment you love me then her then another
    We were happy and then you tore it apart

    My mama even said that you were bad news
    I refused to believe cause I thought I thought I though
    You were my one and only

    I thought we were bound together with our love
    But that bow is becoming loose
    I thought you were my one and only
    But did you change your mind mid sentence?
    Cause one moment you love me then her then another
    We were happy and then you tore it apart

    You tore apart
