Creative Brief

I'm hoping you can help me finish this contemporary folk song. It's kind of mournful, and with bluegrass and Celtic influences. But feel free to take it in whatever direction feels right to you. Sub out my keyboard and vocals if you'd like, and/or I'm happy to re-record to suit your ideas.

BOUND TO BE

You start the day with a cup of poison,

Say goodnight with a blade of steel.

You search the skies for the darkest omen,

Always listening for the bells to peal.

 

And I thank you for all you've given,

Years of walking through the pain.

And I pray your sins are forgiven,

And you'll find your better self again.

 

Will you ever know such kindness as you have given me?

If the Universe revolves toward justice, I'm certain this is bound to be.

 

I had to leave when my heart was battered,

And I couldn't find the strength to stay.

I cried my fill as I packed my suitcase.

You just laughed and said I'd rue to day.

 

And I thank you for your derision,

Because it helped me finally see

That the rage has hollowed out your soul

And you're not the man you used to be.

 

Will you ever know such sweetness as you have given me?

If the Universe revolves toward justice, I'm certain this is bound to be.

 

Now you're lonely, and I'm so sorry,

But there's just no way to make this right.

There's a cold darkness deep inside you,

And my weary spirit craves the light.

 

And I beg you to fight the impulse

To deal me one more blow.

Oh, I know I'm you're favorite target,

But look within to find your foe.

 

Will you ever know such comfort as you have given me?

If the Universe revolves toward justice, I'm certain this is bound to be.
