I Promise I won’t Wrong !

This song’s inspired by the film “Crazy Heart” and Jeff Bridge’s voice. Till now, I couldn’t muster the courage to post this, for one thing I was worried about was how my audience would receive it, secondly – Is this really and really what I claim it is – a country song. I used to read and hum imagining myself as a blues or country music singer, singing in his whiskey tinged heavy baritone voice. People tell me that a country music artist sings a piece right from his heart. So, sing as if you are reading it with a guitar strumming softly inside your head. Let me know how you feel reading this – Good, Bad or Ugly. Your comments help me get better !

I Promise I won’t Wrong !

I was going back
Back to where I came from,
When she called me
Saying come back home.

I was feeling bad,
That I let her down,
She said,
Baby, that’s OK.

I was wrong,
I’ve been wrong, all this while,
I said,
Sorry I let you down.

She said,
Love your dear.
Forgive me,
And that always happens in love.

Forgive me too,
Love you so much,
I said,
With a whiskey in my hand.

She said,
Come back home now,
I’m waiting for you,
With your guitar and a lonely heart.

Turning around

I said,
Four hours and a few miles honey,
I will sing you a new song,
I promise I won’t wrong.

Hiking to the Future

Another Rock song ! Dedicated to the last 3 years of my life… I tried tuning it with a few songs and tunes that I know. Surprisingly it fitted in decently. Would love to hear what you people feel !

Hiking to the Future

Three years are past,
What’ve done that lasts ?
Saw my past just mirrored,
But when’ll I get my future hand delivered ?

As the sun goes down,
The spirits fire my blood brown.
Life still seems a maze,
Everything’s now just a purple haze.

Time just flies,
With memories that cry.
It haunts my days and my nights,
With shadows I dance under the lights.

[

Time just flies
Now that you know what’s right
Don’t ponder over memories that cries
It’s time to put up your fight!!!

*]

Dawn’s just breaking over the night,
Now I’m sober knowing what’s right.
My bag’s are packed ready to hike,
To the mountain( or future) that I like (3) I like I like….. !

*Thanks to Jagan. He gave me an alternative stanza there ! I like it… This one sounds more positive.

The Rights and the Wrongs

What is Right and what is wrong,
No one has taught me that strong,
With closed eyes I meditate,
The devil calling on my state.

Fear, never bit me, afraid,
Future never blessed me, I’d cried,
Blurring faces flashing through
Peace of mind I ne’er knew.
little white space by ouno design.
Falling out to the traps it lay,
Frequent nightmares, can’t bear, I say
Crawling ropes tight around my neck,
When Crimson dusk wait to set.
little white space by ouno design.
Destiny plays the game, so lame
As I wander without an aim,
Life has always been a dream,
As I wake, I scream.
little white space by ouno design.
Yeah… I scream, screeeaaaaaaaaaamm…. Aloud…
little white space by ouno design.
I have prayed the evil at night,
But Worshipped the gods with light,
Trembling hands pull the trigger,
As shadows hug my bright figure.
little white space by ouno design.
