So everyone add a line to this, and let's see where it goes. Try to stay in this format. Who knows where it could end up.

You used to be a lot of fun Now things just ain't the same

Hi Tekboy, I will reply. Hurricane isaias has knocked my power out. I am using a small window from work. I'll add when my power is back.

You used to be a lot of fun
Now things just ain't the same
But this whole thing went nowhere
And there's only me to blame


I'd sit and cry but no one cares
to hear my tale of woe
I guess there's nothing here for me
So I'm just gonna go


Hope this helps!

If I could drown my sorrows in a bottle of your love
Then all of my tomorrows might help me rise above
. . . but the train has left the station, and the ship has all but sailed
Searching all our yesterdays, for where it got derailed.

Hey Tekboy, this went really well. It's looking like it could be wrapped up in to a full set of lyrics here. Where do you want to go from here?

Let's keep going and work it up into a song. One big group collaboration!

I'm up for it, anybody else?

Okay moptop . . . I'll write the music, you guys collect the royalties . . . how's that for a collaboration ? . . . but seriously (snare_flam_crash) . . . I'm still new here, so I'll let you take the lead, and just let me know how I can help out ? HA! someone's got to come up with some chords, a melody, and a beat, we've only got lyrics so far. My vote for the song title would be "Go Wild"

Now that doesn't sound very fair! :?

I'll be glad to work up some music but I will warn you in advance, it will sound like a pop song! ;)

So this is the final lyric version you want me to use?


Verse 1:
You used to be a lot of fun
Now things just ain't the same
But this whole thing went nowhere
And there's only me to blame

Verse 2:
I'd sit and cry but no one cares
to hear my tale of woe
I guess there's nothing here for me
So I'm just gonna go

Chorus:
I'm gonna go wild
gonna make a better life
I'm gonna go wild
gonna find my inner child
We both know it's over
So I'm just gonna go... go wild

Bridge:
If I could drown my sorrows in a bottle of your love
Then all of my tomorrows might help me rise above
. . . but the train has left the station, and the ship has all but sailed
Searching all our yesterdays, for where it got derailed.

Verse 3:
I used to be a lot of fun
before you took me down
But, I'm picking up the pieces
of my heart scattered on the ground

Verse 4:
I'll stick em in my pocket
Then forget that they are there
Before I put em back together
I'll lose them all somewhere

Chorus:
I'm gonna go wild
gonna make a better life
I'm gonna go wild
gonna find my inner child
We both know it's over
So I'm just gonna go... go wild


I like this just as it is and don't see anything else that it needs. I already have several ideas. How about something ala Lynyrd Skynyrd?

Sorry I can not help with the music, but I can't wait to hear what you guys come up with.

moptop . . . looking forward to your ideas. How about Lynyrd Skynyrd with full symphony orchestra . . . or am I dreaming too big ?

Wild wild wild
There's nothing stopping me
Wild wild wild
I'm in the groove
Wild wild wild
You can't restrain me
Wild wild wild
I'll love anything that moves!
