no tomorrow

Written to music by Alfredo from Argentina:


a night in the club, a night to get away from all
I never thought that I would find my love right there
I saw you, I spotted you among the dancing crowd
and at the end of day I was lost for good

the room was charged with energy
seductive beats that moved the dancers
high voltage electricity
and the music left no room for cares or sorrows

when I saw you dance
I was knocked off my feet
no words could describe what I was feeling
you moved like in trance
you looked so sweet
and moved like there would be no tomorrow

just a little touch
leading on to kisses
and the rest is history
just a magic word
in a world of bliss
to hear your joyful cries
just a little love
just a little friendship
that is all it takes to fill our lives
now we're lying side by side

how 'bout the club, to celebrate the work weeks end
let us have fun, let's party till the morning dawns
let us cheer our friendship and the place where we first met
till at the end of night we'll walk in the light

a dancefloor charged with energy
seductive beats that move the dancers
high voltage electricity
while the music leaves no room for cares or sorrows

when I see you dance
you knock me off my feet
no words can describe what I'm feeling
you move like in trance
you look so sweet
that I wish there would be no tomorrow

together now

A duet. Somewhat corny, maybe, yet fits the music...

HE
there was this girl
this dreamlike girl
I had no choice
braced up and asked her "Can I walk with you?"
"I'll walk you home or anywhere.
Maybe see you home,
or just chat and roam.
Please give me this chance,
my pretty girl!"

SHE
I thought I knew
I knew who you were
but when I think 'bout it
what did I know
nothing much that would have helped me foresee what would come
foresee what would come
you would be the one
you are the one

HE [SHE]
my pretty girl [my beloved man]
my dream come true [all my dreams fulfilled]
my pretty girl [my beloved man and friend]
I will stay true and always be with you [my dreams fulfilled]
to be with you I will stay true [I believe in you and that you always will stay true]

BOTH
we're together now
nothing in between
all our dreams fulfilled
together now

we're together now
nothing in between
all our dreams fulfilled
together now

under your charm

This is it (matching Marcell's tune exactly!):

we were dancing close
like in a dream world
lost in ourselves
and when
the party ended
I comprehended
you'd cast your spell

you light my nights
as you light my days
to see you smile
blows me away
I hold my breath
when you're in my arms
I melt away
under your charm

you moved in with me
it feels like fiction
that I'm with you
that now
we are together
two of a feather
and all so new

you light my nights
as you light my days
to see you smile
blows me away
I hold my breath
when you're in my arms
I melt away
under your charm

blow away ;-)

No, that's not the latest title.
I am applying my 'template approach' to a pop 'project' I'm working on. This is my my dummy text for the verses:

you - you make my day
I cannot see you
I'm on my way
but now
that I am near you
I want to hear you
and blow away

These lyrics make no sense? Excactly! They're not supposed to. But they match the tune perfectly - that's their function. Now I 'only' need to find some words that actually do make sense.

The song already has a chorus, by the way. And a title as well. Marcell and I have been working on this project on and off since quite some time. Here is the chorus to "under your charm":

you light my nights
as you light my days
to see you smile
blows me away
I hold my breath
when you're in my arms
I melt away
under your charm


But back to writing some verses, only two, actually...

rock the boat - completed

I only added a bridge, that must suffice. Since the verses are rather generic there is actually nothing more to say so it is better to just 'shut up', I guess.

This is the bridge:

no use asking how we got into the heavy seas
no use praying for salvation
with open eyes we've run into our miseries
heading for our own damnation


The structure that I have in mind would be: verse - chorus - verse - chorus - bridge - chorus.
