Hi! Om a little curious since I did not hear of any changes in the lyrics and dont quite recognize the last part 😔. I really like to know in advance if someone want to change what i wrote.

[avatar]

Hi! can´t see any other way to reach you here than trough this so I leave the lyrics here for the random collab. If thats ok.
Story behind: My friend finally divorced her (by his mom) very spoiled husband husband and wanted to celebrate

I don´t need a rescue
I don´t need a hand
I don´t need somebody
to call my husband
And I´m sorry to say it
but we all know that it´s true
I celebrate today
that there is no more me and you

CH: People say you never know
What you got until its gone
But I know I´m no cleaner anymore
No matter what goes on

He said I´ll never make it
Witout him and his house
But he never treated me
As you should treat your spouse
He can´t stand that Im happy
He thought that I would cry
But we both know that we are best
off since when we said goodbye

CH: People say you never know
What you got until its gone
But I know I´m no cleaner anymore
No matter what goes on

I cleaned and cooked and gave him all
the best years of my life
Now another pretty face replaced me as his wife
Maybe I should tell her
Or maybe just enjoy
The fact that the man I thought I married
‘Is now somebody elses boy

CH: People say you never know
What you got until its gone
But I know I´m no cleaner anymore
No matter what goes on

Hi Colleen, permission granted 😀

I am pleased with the GarageBand stuff, experimenting with it a few months. Thinking of changing up the Dancing song to add an extra layer of fun. Thanks for the listen and comments.

Thanks for Forever with You, Colleen! It's beautiful. I've added a comment to the liner notes.

Thanks for your comments on my 'In bed with his woman' lyrics. What a cool twist on the lyrics to have the protagonist as female - think it would work pretty well!

[avatar]

The great thing about collaborations is, they tend to go off in directions that you never expected. And so it is with "All Of The Above"; you've made a beautiful setting to the lyrics, and one that I never would have come up with. Well done, and thank you.

Hey Colleen,
Hope you’re well - sounds like you’ve got lots of new and exciting stuff going on?!!!
That would be ace if you want to have a crack and setting it to music but no pressure :)

[avatar]

LOVED it!

[avatar]

LOVED it!

[avatar]

I am speechless. Delightfully speechless! Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that …. But now I don’t know how I won’t dream about it! :)

Hello, my name is Tuneslayer and I will be your randomly selected collaborator for today. What's your pleasure? Give me a topic and/or genre and let's see what we can come up with. Leave a note on my soundboard or you can mail me at filkerup@lambard.net. Cheers!

EDIT 7/7 10:30 AM PT: I posted a set of lyrics and tagged you as a collaborator. Hopefully that's OK and you like the lyrics; if not, let me know and we'll put something else together.

[avatar]

Yeah!!! I always love your take on my lyrics! I will make a note on the lyric that you are doing music!

[avatar]

Thank you! I appreciate your kind comment on drag king! And you are always welcome to grab a lyric that sings to you. Just let me know!
