Creative Thing Week #10 – Brainstorming a Song Idea

I don’t have a finished product this week, though I’ve been spending time brainstorming new material and listening to some different songs and instrumental tracks to help inspire me. I’m just about to where I hope I can track my first guitar instrumental with minimal mistakes, and I’m pretty much up and ready to go on the new version of Logic Pro. So maybe next week I’ll have an instrumental work in progress for you.

I’m also rehearsing some things I’ve written/composed in recent weeks, because I’ve got a gig coming up at which I want to debut them. And they shift and settle into more polished places as I do, and that’s all good.

In the meantime, at the top of the list of my brainstorming is something titled “Walking Each Other Home.” I want it to be inspirational, and maybe a love song. I don’t have enough pieces yet to know how it’ll turn out. But I can share a possible chorus, and I’ll share some of the more interesting lyric sets I’ve come up with so far. And you may see a more-finished version of this in the future.

First the proto-chorus:

Wouldn’t life be easier

If we walked each other home?

We could all get where we want to go

If we walked each other home.


And some lyrics:

The slamming closed of a heart’s own door

Is the saddest sound there is


Forever trapped in too-small armor, bonsai of the soul


The world is full of magic, for those with eyes to see

Like the sparkle in your gaze every time you look at me


Cassandra tried to anchor the news, but everyone changed the channel


And that’s where it all sits right now, along with some other bits that I don’t like as much. :) Hopefully a bit more brainstorming will give me something I can use.

In the meantime, thanks for listening and have an awesome week!
