About
My name is Nigel Longfellow of Heartland music and I have been writing poetry and lyrics for many years. I grew up listening to Gospel and Country music and fell in love with the American country and western genre. My writing is both unique and simple and heavily influenced by great songwriters such as Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits and Shane MacGowan of the Pogues. Although my writing does feel very 'Americana/country' in style I am certain that my words and lyrics could be adapted for various musical genres and styles. Having been placed runner up (in a grand final) and semi finalist in an international songwriting competition 3 years ago with a beautiful and tender ballad entitled 'For the Last Time', I feel that I am now quite possibly writing some of the most poetic, passionate and heartfelt lyrics i have ever written

'Love will blow away the rain'
G
As we both lie close together
C
Wrapped in the arms of night
G
We’ve both got until forever baby
C
To hold each other tight

G
But when your eyes go blind
C
And your blood runs cold
G
Do we just give up
C
And cry

D C
We gotta work damn hard not to lose this faith……. baby we gotta try
because

Chorus
G Am
Love is sometimes like the summer
C G
love is like your cross and chain
G Am
And love is sometimes like a candle
C
When its burning like
G
a flame
G Am
Love is sometimes like an angel
C G
An angel for your pain
G Am
and love will blow away the thunder
C G
Love will blow away the rain




Verse 2
G
Remember that night on your daddys porch
C
We smoked those cigarettes
G
We found our love B’neath that gypsy moon
C
How lucky could we get You know

G
I was searching
C
All my life
G
For someone
C
Just like you
D C
This night was filled with magic baby……. this magic was made for two

Chorus

Verse 3
G
We use our words like sticks and stones
C
They cut us up inside
G
But You know we need each other
C
Like the sea it needs a tide

G
You taught me how
C
To laugh and cry
G
You taught me
C
How to dance
D C
So c’mon baby lets mend this thing…….. lets give love another chance

Repeat chorus Copywrite N. Longfellow

One of my songs (Grand Finalist in an International Songwriting Competition)

'Ill never let you cry alone'

C Am
I can hear your footsteps gently move across the floor
C Am
I could feel the summer she was waiting outside my door
F G Am
And as the sun rose in morning sky……..it was getting high
F G
And though I should have told yer
Am F
Before the day gets older baby
C G C
I guess im just too scared to say goodbye

C Am
Life was real tough but good times never seemed so far
C Am
Remember hanging out and sleeping underneath the stars
F G Am
I wonder why that kiss just felt so cold…………like yer love’s been sold
F G
And though I should have told yer
Am F
Before those nights got colder baby
C G C
I guess I was just too scared to say goodbye

Chorus
Am G
Well I said im gonna love you
F C
From now until forever
Am G
But I know my words can feel like sticks and stones
F G
So I promise if I hurt you
Am F
Ill wrap my arms around you baby
C G C
I swear ill never let you cry alone

C Am
Its been a long time since we made all our dreams come true
C Am
But everybody says all the best dreams are made for two
F G Am
And when I hold you close in the soft moonlight…………with your skin so white
F G
Im glad i never told yer
Am F
Now we’re getting older baby
C G C
I guess I was too scared to say goodbye


Chorus
Am G
Well I said im gonna love you
F C
From now until forever
Am F G
But I know my words can feel like sticks and stones
F G
So I promise if I hurt you
Am F
Ill wrap my arms around you baby
C G C Am
I swear ill never let you cry alone…………and ill say it again
F G C Am
