my first song was the snow queen ; written when i was 10 and i imagined an android woman who could take the cold and was called the snow queen.
" the snow queen fell out of her space ship and landed in a place in my heart
the snow queen whose eyes flash like fire, has sworn that we never will part"
years later i put it in my song "cygnus a" :
my first attemp at poery was in the fifth grade for a poetry contest . it went
" sometimes i wish that i could fly. just like a bird up in the sky.
to be up there without a care and watch the weary world go by". i took second place losing to a guy writing about the civil war.
i was in a rock band in high school and wrote songs for them. they did my first comnplete song "wait for me" bout soldier in battle writin girl sayin wait for me. a friend pointed out that i took tune phrase from " they call the wind mariah " and "soldier boy" . shockin me that i acciden did it and i said yeah but the lyrics and feelins are mine. and its a hit playin in kids head alll day. (probable not) it went "every man turned 18 years must fight for liverty. my heart grew strong i shed no tears strength came to comfort me as i cried out oh wait for me, darling oh please wait for me . illl be comin home from my journey someday". i swore him to secrecy and no one else figured it out. it was accidental on my part. pretty good for song 1. i started out as rhythm guitar player , but ended up a drummer.
i write songs typically while driving or walking or waiting, sometimes in my dreams (freaky) i usually get about 16 lines and get stuck. then eventuallly get the bridge and complete the song. i have written about 30 complete songs and 300 song seeds ( 16 lines). i then target a song and complete it on my computer under "sony acid music studio" software to make mp3 . my lyrics tend to be very lengthy without repeats. a song is always playing in my head. if i don't work on the song seeds,the song demons get angry for they want to be completed. i write pop,rock country, wierd beatles, bob dylan type,love ballads and demented songs.
