100 DoRaM: Day 21 – The art of loving

When I write a love story, I want my characters to struggle before the happy ending. I want them to suffer, cry and hurt. I love doing that to them. I might be just a little sick that way. It’s intense to feel such an ache. Don’t you think? Butterflies rupturing your insides. Tears stinging the soft of your face until you can’t breathe from the flooding. Then they come back to each other. All is well… ah… sigh… Or is it?  That’s the art of loving.

You were alone, left out in the cold
You found me and lifted my bleeding soul

Clinging to the ruin of your broken home
You sheltered my wounded heart awake

Too lost and hurting to carry your load
I knew you’d love me back to strength

We all need someone to hold
Hold me, embrace me forever

You’ve been fighting the memory, on your own
Alone until you sat beside me

Nothing worsens; nothing grows
As still as my thoughts ripple apart

I know how it feels being by yourself in the rain
And you came to shelter me

We all need someone to stay
You stayed, you remained

We all need someone to stay
You stayed… with me

Hear you, falling and lonely, cry out:
Longing, aching for you

Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
You took my hand and squeezed

At the end of the day you were helpless
My tired head on your shoulder

Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Your arm around me, you kissed my forehead

You’ve drunk it down and you’ve spat it out
Choking on it as we speak

And nothing tastes like the things you had
Bitter pill inside me

So turn it off, why don’t you let them go?
Letting you help me now

We all need someone to stay
You’re staying, you’re staying

We all need someone to stay
You’re staying… with me

Hear you, falling and lonely, cry out
Want you to rescue me

Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
Will you love me

At the end of the day we’re helpless
Your thoughts corrupt me

Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Do you love me at all

Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Can you love me at all

Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Do you love me at all

You were alone, left out in the cold
I dreamed a dream of you

Clinging to the ruin of your broken home
Trembling in fear of losing you

You were falling and lonely, cry out:
Want me, take me, save me

Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
Crying, dying for you to hold me

The end of the day and we’re helpless
Watching the sunset without you

Can you keep me close? Can you love me?
Will you stay this time or will you go

Hear you falling and lonely cry out:
I can’t bear to see you leave again

Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
Drowning in my loneliness

At the end of the day we’re helpless
Your doubts breaking me

Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
You’ve pushed me away. You can’t love me most.

Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
You’re walking away. You can’t love me most.

Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
You’ve gone away… you can’t love me most.

  1. I love that intro – Love has got to be the hardest and easiest topic to write about, but you do it so well! Enjoyed the music btw! How does it work for you, Mel, do you usually listen to a piece first to get a sense of what you’re going to write or do you fit the music to your writing? Day 21 (you’re practically hitting quarter!) and I’m enjoying the ride!

    1. Wow… thought provoking questions. I’m really upset right now because before I dive into the next day I read the current. There were two lines missing from the lyrics. Those first two lines are very important and I screwed up!

    2. I’ve been dreaming in music since I was a child. I didn’t have a bad childhood, but it was rough at times. Music was an escape. Sometimes the scene comes with out it and others, the music punches the idea and I just write. It’s really not that big a deal. To me it’s just what happens to me.

      I just updated the lyrics if you want to read it again. I can’t believe I messed that up. The most important part was the beginning. Ugh!

      1. Humbled, Mel, srs you might kill me with kindness one day 😉 ! Um, well…I don’t plan usually, most of it comes on a whim and I ride it out as long as I can. I scrap a lot of stuff that I don’t vibe with. I usually pick a song and replay it until I’m finished and it helps set the theme for me (this goes back to my question to you, about your writing process). Music is especially helpful, which is why I’m such a fan of your work, it vibes with me!

  2. Thanks again Mel, think I’ll go buy some shares in a “Tissue Manufacturing” business, you’re slaying me, and I’m a blubbering mess, Liquid Joy all over my f***ing keyboard again, Maybe Shares in a “Keyboard Manufacturer” as well, and I reckon by the end of the month I’ll nearly have enough to fly over and, see Ya’ all…..
