About
My name is Carrie. I have loved music and lyrics for as long as I can remember. I have always loved to write. For me it comes easy. It is how I defuse, it is my therapy. Because of this, I write from a very emotional place. I write from my soul. At 41 years old, I, like most people, have had a lot of experiences and seen a lot of things. I am quite good at putting myself in another’s shoes and enjoy writing from that perspective, as well as my own. I love to explore the depths of the human soul, as well as to try and see the bigger picture. I will readily admit, I have no musical abilities. But I am a lifelong music addict and I can and love to write. Think of me as a Bernie Taupin looking for her Elton John. Who knows what kind of magic we can find?

Lyrics

                   There once was a boy, who truly loved the trees, He’d spend all day out in them, communing with the bees. And everywhere he went, he’d plant a little seed, To grow a big strong oak, where once there was a weed.   Acorns and apples plante

The Dawn   She tries to smooth out his clay features, remembering how he used to feel. All she ever does now, is pray to God. And wish that her sculpture were real.   They said it would get better with time, But, while waiting for the dawn, she's being rob

There were angels in the room, When he told me not to cry. They shook their heads, and I heard them sigh.   And glancing up, I thought I could see, A sad sweet smile reflecting back at me. I knew they couldn’t help me, There was nothing they could say. Th

Write me a song that carries me away. One of magic and of music and of hope, when all’s grey.  away somewhere, beyond all my dreams. A song that puts me back together, when I am bursting at the seams.   Write me something special, Write me something true,

                       Did you ever see that movie, About the guy, who try as he might, Had to live the same day over and over. Just couldn’t escape his plight.   Well here we are at the end of the world, Armageddon has come at last. But nothings going qui

Joey finds that words come hard Choking up, he withdrawals his card. He has so many things that he wants to say, But, he says them better when he does it his way. Rocking gently behind his shield, He hopes that the pain will yield. Each string he plucks,

   When your whole world has exploded, When you cannot find the light. Upended and overloaded When you’ve given up the fight.   When the fire, it consumes you, When you think you’ll go insane. When it’s more than you can go through, And you can’t handle a

  Long ago before we were human, I loved you deeper than any sea, And when you went and started your new life, You had to leave but could not take me.   For reasons I do not remember, For plant I cannot recall, It was “better that we were not together” Som

Maybe I was a little girl, That nobody thought could feel? Maybe I was  a child, that nobody thought was real? Maybe I am  a woman, Whom everyone thinks is strong? Maybe I am still, a little girl, who only thinks she's wrong? But leaves turn many color

Oscar's standing in the sunlights glow. Laughing at what? We don't know. And I am trying very hard to see, through the beautiful eyes of Oscar Magee. I need to reach the little boy at the door. But I don't speak the language of angels anymore. He doesn't

i have always hoped to find my bernie taupin, although my main instrument is guitar. most of the lyrics that have been sent to me didnt have the depth and commerciality that those 2 managed. if you read bernies lyrics many dont sound like theyd be the type hits they were. but elton had a knack of making them memorable. i liken it to the coupling of pete wentz and patrick stump from fallout boy. pete writes basically freeverse and when you read it on a page it doesnt seem to lend itself to a song structure. but patrick takes it and turns it into something great. it was a perfect marriage. i would be interested in looking at some of your lyrics to see if maybe there is a magic
