It’s rare that I get to write songs/lyrics twice in a month. Usually, there are months in between efforts. This morning, I was going through something online and I came across an ad with the tag, “If you ever have trouble sleeping”. I don’t know why, perhaps it’s the challenge of TAD that set up the synapses in the right order in my brain, but that line lead to these lyrics…

If you ever have trouble sleeping
Just call me up… let me in…
I can handle some tossin’ and turnin’
Just let me know… and I’ll begin

Chorus:
I’m here to help you anytime
Just here to help and I don’t mind
Just ask me, I’ll be right there
I’ll show how much… I really care

Interlude:
I’m gonna make – you – feel alright
And we can play our game tonight
I’ll hold you… with all my might
Make sure things turn out right…
And then we’ll sleep… sleep… sleep… so much better
We can live… live… together… and own the night…

Break:

If you’re ever sad and feelin’ blue
Just let me know… I’ll come to you…
I can tell you a funny story or two
Just ask for me… I’ll come to you

Repeat Chorus:

Interlude:
I’m gonna make – it – feel alright
And make sure you laugh with all your might
I’ll hold you… real tight
I’ll get you through it all, to you’re delight…
We’ll smile… laugh… and feel… so much better
We can live… live… together… in our own daylight…

Outtro:
We can live… live… together… and own the night…
We can live… live… together… in our own daylight…

Of course, I have chords and melody worked out. That’s part of songwriting. I can’t do one without the other. With a melody, these lines make a lot more sense. So, I did a song on Day 1 and, again, now, on Day 4. Can’t wait for tomorrow.
