About
Writing lyrics is a serious hobby. I have been writing lyrics for more than 20 years. Aside from developing the concept, I enjoy editing and rewriting. I have melodies for most of my lyrics, but I do not write music. I am looking for composers who can take my rough melodies and finish them to enhance the lyrics. I am not ego driven in this endeavor, I am looking to work with composers who have the same attitude to write the best song possible. My ultimate goal is to demo songs and sell them. I am also looking forward to the collaborative process.

CAN’T DREAM ABOUT TOMORROW

It was 3am, I couldn’t sleep
Paced around, tried to think
Wandered outside into the cold
My mind went numb my lips nearly froze.
My world changed in an instant
The moment you were gone
You’re all I ever wanted
How can I face the dawn

CAN’T DREAM ABOUT TOMORROW
If I did I’d surely cry
Don’t want to live without you
I just can’t say goodbye
CAN’T DREAM ABOUT TOMORROW
Cause tomorrow could never be
The same as all our yesterday’s
If you’re not here with me

This demo along with 2 earlier songs can be found on SoundCloud under my name.
