Rachel’s Song – #OneHourSong
Although lacking a strict form, this simple playful song delves into a character named Rachel. I started the song with no general direction, then decided to tell a story of Rachel, who can’t seem to give forth much effort. The outside world scares her. Yet, she feels free in her own realm. It sounds really deep, but the lyrics are pretty whimsical.
This is what I wrote (Not all made it to the recording)
When you see it well you know so fast, but it can’t be the one you choose
No she’ll never be forever free but we all know that’s how it goes
She moves like a dream through the minds quite free to use her device like a trinket
Unlock the wisdom you wish to receive and never know the true potential
I cannot pretend that her tricks aren’t coy nor will she ever change her face
But here and there we’ll get a stare and know what this life could be
But rachel she just stops at home the whole wide world is never known
Rachel won’t have the strength to try nothing she even did got her quite by
But Rachel’s got to try a lot for me
Out her door she may peek but our hearts skip a beat
She just goes on standing there moving her eyes everywhere.
