  • "I Wish It Were You" -- WIP, brand new

    The title just popped into my head, and I quickly sketched out the lyric.

    What do you think? Anything here?

     I Wish It Were You

    Baby, I

    “I think you make yourself an antenna for songs, and songs want to be around you. And then they bring other songs along, and then they’re all sittin’ around, and they’re drinking your beer, and they’re sleeping on the floor.” —Tom Waits

    It's certainly a subject matter that's been done before, but if anyone can put a fresh twist on it, you can.  I think you're off to a good start.

    A few things that mildly bugged me:

    The "fait accompli" line.  Too much of a frou-frou term for me.

    Not sure about "where no memories pop into view."  I like the sentiment, but the word choice seems a bit strained.  But this could be one of those things that irons itself out when it is sung.

    The last line of the bridge seems too short for the syllable and stress pattern that has been established up to that point.  Again, this concern might go away when I hear it sung.

      Good points.

      It's funny: the fait accompli line is my favorite.

      At any rate, this just popped out last night. It took about two minutes to write. So it's definitely a rough draft.

      Nice ^ ! The whole thing just slides nicely. Very cool.

       

      One thought... I love the bridge but I think it would work better if there were a word or two or three in a verse before about her trying to "perfect " him. As it stands now, it jumps out from the blue thematically just a little.


      Good point.

      Maybe:

       

      Why can
