Colours of Love

Finally, after hours of sitting idly and letting my mind wander with nothingness, I finally got something to write for the song I am supposed to do within a week. I am not sure though if I can still get it done till April 25 for the deadline. I was tossing and turning last night thinking and searching for inspiration. Somehow, this is one of those very rare moments that caffeine don't work.

And then around midday, it hit me. In between translating Russian song verses, I was writing my own song too. The Russian song was about love, dark chocolate and sweet tea (which happens to be my favorite things, not particularly in the same order) so I thought, why not write something about love too? I mean, love is universal, and it's the easiest thing to write because at some point in my life, I fell in love , not just once, but many times. :) And I know that it is something everyone can relate to.

The next problem was trying to get the beat done. I may need some help from friends with this, since it may take me forever to have it done since I am on a deadline. But at the very least, I was able to complete the lyrics and the melody of the song. You won't believe what I was doing during the time the title popped into my head. Unexpected ideas comes from unexpected places. The idea may be generic, but the process of where the idea was born is often the selling point for some artistic creations.

I may not be the world's greatest songwriter, but I am proud of this. As soon as I get the music done, I'm sharing it so the lyrics will be appreciated. The title really doesn't say much about the lyrics. :)

Colours of Love


I never thought I could be this way
My life has never been the same
I thought that life would be forever blue
Until the day that I found you.

I think of all the things that I’ve been through
The countless tears I shed you never know
And then you came into my life
And took me out from the rain.

Chorus:
Coz you bring back the laughter into my life
Promise of a happy ever after
'Coz you brought the sun to shine into my life
To keep me warm all through the night.

'Coz you bring back the laughter into my life
Promise of a happy ever after
And you brought the sun to shine into my life
To show me all the colours of love

I never thought that I could change
The frown I used to wear seemed to disappear
You taught me how to live my life again
And make all my dreams come true
Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
And when you came into my life
Never too early, never too late
Just right in time , oh just right in time (2x)

To show me all the colours of love
To show me all the colours of love.


Thought for today:

No matter how others think it is  impossible for you to do something, just do it and you'd be surprised at the wonderful things you can do.
