I always ask my guests to quote their favourite self penned lyrics.

Lyrics – About Time: “When dreams come and fly away, money flows in but you’re not okay, You like the game, you like to win, but forget your soul just needs to sing, In the morning put your feet on the ground, wish away those dreams that can’t be found..”

Lyrics – Holding On  (which is about addiction)  “Rushing through an open door, making sure you’re out of sight, Can’t stop it from controlling you, That urge from deep inside… (bvs: ask yourself) Am I better without you? No (Bvs: yeah) But I don’t want to let you go (bvs: Nooo) Holding on when I should let go…  Ru said “I like these because they paint a picture by describing the urgency of the addiction “get your fix its right at hand” and then the internal discussion between “voice” of the addicted mind on autopilot and the “voice” of reason. So the lead vocal and bvs are doing a call and response game, each playing different “voices” of the thought process the person is having inside their mind”.

Ru  “I love lyrics with word sounds that are fun to sing. I see music as a whole. Lyrics are a piece of the composition and should adapt and fit in rhythmically as well as conveying the idea/message of the song”.
