About
I'm a lyricist who usually writes in the hard rock/ metal genres. I started writing poetry at around age eleven and finally followed my heart into writing song lyrics about 3 yrs. ago. Though I don't have much experience, I do study to improve my lyric writing as well as actually doing the writing on a daily basis. I've had luck in having the musicians approach me to write the music so far but feel the need to find more collaborators. I'm only interested in working with artists who strive for perfection.

I'm looking for a songwriter in the hard rock and metal genres to put melody to my lyrics. I have examples of my writing on my timeline. (included are country and pop lyrics but I'd like to work on one of the hard rock sets I have) More where they came from. I'll share what I hear in my head but the musical writing will be left to your discretion. All I ask is that you be willing to keep at it until we both think the scratch demo is as good as it can possibly be. I have connections in the industry that can help us with recording a more professional demo if needed. I'm open to edits and rewriting. Please have experience in writing to contact me. A Blessed Winter Solstice to all !!

'It Sure Ain't Wonderland' (song lyrics )
by LisaMarie Carter on March 3, 2017. © LisaMarie Carter, All rights reserved

V) Close my eyes and wish

for the days I never had.
Think about mistakes I've made

dreams I've watched go bad.


V) An image in a mirror;

I couldn't see it for what it was.
Reflections of a wasted life;

doing things just because.

CH) Like Alice through the looking glass,

I tumbled end over end.
Like Alice through the looking glass,

I was lost in a world of pretend.
I can't tell you where I am..... but it sure ain't Wonderland.

V) Times that flowed through my fingers,

like water escaping my grasp.
I couldn't see the loss

in the way those days did pass.



V) I continued to dance with my head down

as life went speeding by,

I'd crossed into the looking glass,

no one on which to rely.



Ch) Like Alice through the looking glass,

I tumbled end over end.

Like Alice through the looking glass,

I was lost in a world of pretend.

I can't tell you where I am...but it sure ain't Wonderland.



BR) If I broke free, I'm sure there would be; seven years of hardcore times.

Cracks in the mirror,like tears running down...my face in razor sharp lines.



V) Gotta break my way out of this nightmare I'm in

but fate just smiles back with it's Chesire grin.

"You're going nowhere", he purrs in my ear;

and so I stand frozen year after year.


CH) Like Alice through the looking-glass,

I tumbled end over end.
Like Alice through the looking glass,

I was lost in a world of pretend.
I can't tell you where I am....but it sure ain't Wonderland.

OUTRO) Can't tell you where I am...but it sure ain't Wonderland.
No it sure ain't Wonderland.
