‘Not really sure how to do this, and I always have difficulty with it, but here it goes.

Here’s my latest song for review. Mainly, please let me know what Genre you think it falls under, if any,

and if you get the concept of the song. All other comments welcome, as well – pro or con. Thank you.

Here are the lyrics:

Friends are far away when money changes hands
Find a friendly face when power shifts the dance

Only like likes like
Trying to find what’s like, like

When friends become your foes
Divided by your hair or nose
You’re judged from your head to your toes
By & By when nothing else goes

It seems alright when it’s good
It seems alright until you’re the one who’s no good

Well I would lay down, with the rest of ’em, there the best of ’em
I would lay down, with the rest of ’em, yes the rest of ’em

When money runs the show
Who should be allowed
When it matters who you know
Who should be allowed

Only like likes like
Trying to find what’s like, like

When natives have to go
Who should be allowed
When hate is status quo
Who should be allowed

It seems alright when it’s good
It seems alright until you’re the one who’s no good

Well I would lay down, with the rest of ’em, there the best of ’em
I would lay down, with the rest of ’em, yes the rest of ’em
I would lay down, with the rest of ’em, there the best of ’em
I would lay down, with the rest of ’em, that’s the best of ’em

When money runs the show
Who should be allowed
When it matters who you know
Who should be allowed

Only like likes like
Trying to find what’s like, like

When natives have to go
Who should be allowed
When hate is status quo
Who should be allowed

It seems alright when it’s good
It seems alright until you’re the one who’s no good

Well I would lay down, with the rest of ’em, there the best of ’em
I would lay down, with the rest of ’em, yes the rest of ’em
I would lay down, with the rest of ’em, there the best of ’em
I would lay down, with the rest of ’em, that’s the best of ’em
I would lay down, with the rest of ’em, there the best of ’em
I would lay down, with the rest of ’em, yes the rest of ’em

Friends are far away when power shifts the dance.

ElectroLatinFunkDancePop? This song has gone through several transformations, but mostly started out with a Latin style (which is what happened with most songs I wrote with my favorite guitar sound on the Korg Triton. I went with my first vocal trial and then tried shaping and connecting concepts ’til the story and style happened as it is. I still hear some areas I’d like to reshape the vocals, but for the most part I figure to leave it, unless feedback suggests otherwise.

I’m also considering changing the name to “6248”

[Lyrics]

You told me – I heard you say

Thet you were the only one

For me

I don’t believe you

I can find love

You know

I have it better now

You know

I have It better now

I have it better now

17 years and counting on

Probably many more since this song

This is what I convince myself

But I still miss you

17 years, 1 month, 8 days

And a long long time to go

I miss you

6248

17 years ago

You left me

I left you

Who knows, who cares

17 years ago

Away from you

6248

17 years

I miss you

It’s a long time ago

To be missing you

17 years

17 years ago

I left you

You left me

Who knows, who cares

6248

Meant To Be

I don’t imagine this to fit within Mainstream Pop, as I’d like to produce and perform. I hear this as a theme for America (I was trying for human kind world wide, but it ended up narrowed down to this “nation”).
So I’m looking for feed back on lyrics, vocal ability, overall song structure and anything else you all would like to add.

Also about the title: “Meant To Be”, or “Carried On”, or “We As Love”, or “Love Carried On”???

Thank you.

[Lyrics]

We
Can’t live on
Without Love

I
Can’t live on
Without love

And if we never see
love as what you and me are meant
to be

Then we will never be
What we were meant to see as love
carried on

Free
Can’t live on
Without love

We
Can’t live on without love

It’s what we’re meant to be
Without we’re doomed to see it all
Descend

Love shared is life lived free
Without it’s selfishly just love
pretend

People died for we
as a nation

Joined by unity
As a nation

Fighting for the free
to be left to live

For us to belong
For us to belong

People died for you and me
People paved the way
Tried and true to this day

People fought for unity
People sought the day
You & me could play

They
Can’t live on without love

We
Can’t live on without love

And if we never see
love as what you and me were meant
as free

Then we will never be
What life was meant for we as free
carried on

People died for we
as a nation

Fighting for the free
to be left to live

As a nation

United to be free
as a nation

People died for you and me
People paved the way
Tried and true to this day

People cried for joy to stay
People died in vain that way
Just for you and me

They
Can’t live on without love

We
Can’t live on without love.
