Just Can’t Get Started
__________________Verse/Chorus
Verse 1:
In the mornings my mind drags
My tattered soul’s just a rag
And Tuesdays are my blues days
On weekends I avoid friends

Chorus:
Although nothing’s changed
Since that day you departed
My shattered heart’s become estranged
And I just can’t get started
Just can’t get started

Verse 2:
Life’s rhythm is simply blah
My scattered mind’s full of flaws
My Fridays are get by days
I’m weak when I’m at my peak

Chorus:
Although nothing’s changed
Since that day you departed
My shattered heart’s become estranged
And I just can’t get started
Just can’t get started

Bridge:
I tell myself perchance the day will come when you return to me
To renew this romance that’s ceased my heart and still burns in me

Chorus:
Although nothing’s changed
Since that day you departed
My shattered heart’s become estranged
And I just can’t get started
Just can’t get started

Post Chorus: (fade)
I just can’t get started
Just can’t get started
Can’t get started

Charles, Clever nice verses with internal rhyme. Very nice. Love the weekday references, and Im happy you didnt overdo them. Two was enough to make me try to think of others on my own and yet not make the song cliche. I like it.

Yea Bunny, I flooded it with different rhymes and alliteration, even from verse to verse to chorus. It should be easy to sing. In my files I’ve got a bunch of rhymes for days of the weeks. I got the idea from Ira Gershwin’s line in ‘The Man I Love’: maybe Tuesday will be my good news day. Happy you like it; it was a fun one.

Charles

Thanks Mike. It’s easier when I write about myself. Glad you enjoyed it.
