I KILLED A DEAD WOMAN

(Grace Ibe)

It's really quite tempting to play fast and loose with people's hearts. However, playing God with their emotions, especially with regard to the concept of love, has uncanny ways of backfiring on the player. Theselyrics are about a player who did just that and now regrets his actions, wishing he could turn back the hands of time.

STANZA 1: Frightening I found it, when transported back ten years ago. I was a younger man, full of foolishness and pride. The handsome breaker of hearts. Strutting about like someone with nothing to hide. No girl came to my bed and left untouched. No one gave their hearts to me and left unbroken. It didn't matter who they were but what I hadn't known was that my own true love was part of my tokens. CHORUS: I killed a dead woman! It was a scene where I had played a part. But when I saw her face... It was the woman that I'd broken her heart! STANZA 2: She was such a pure angel that I had taken her innocence. Her skin was so translucent and porcelain that I'd first thought her unreal. But the night I'd claimed her as part of my conquests and told her my heart wasn't in it. I saw her eyes died like fallen rose petals; she said forever she XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXX X XX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXX XXXXXX XX XX XXXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXX X XXXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XX XXX XXX XXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX X XXXXXXXX XXX XXXX X XXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXX X XXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXX X XXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXX XX XXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXX

I THINK YOU ARE WILD!

By Grace Ibe


Not everyone likes a peaceful existence. Not everyone is cool, calm and collected. Some people like living on the edge. They love walking on the wild side. Having a relationship with someone like this as a friend or relative could drive you up the wall because you never know what they are up to next! One thing about people like this is that they are the life and soul of a party. Life is never boring with them!

AFRICA IS HOME SWEET HOME!

By Grace Ibe


Everyone has their concept of what their continent and their people are to them. If I happened to travel to another country and someone asked me my view of Africa, I would say that I see Africa as the home of love and peace, where the weary of heart and feet can find surcease from their wanderings. The atmosphere of each African country is unique with diverse cultures and languages. Each delicacy is unforgettable! Therefore, anyone visiting will have a fantastic story to tell. There are humans there...this is not a fairy tale. You are welcome!

OUTCASTS

By Grace Ibe


There are many people in the world who are treated badly for being different. Many are faced with bullying, segregation, racism and ostracism. Many are considered weak physically, psychologically even mentally, of a lower social class, or to bear the sins of their forefathers or parents, not allowed to enjoy the basic things of life. They are considered outcasts. Therefore, the outcasts are asking to be heard...

This earth is far too beautiful

By Kate Bennett


Revering earth and mother nature. A mystical beautiful female figure. A love letter to nature and to a romantic partner. How two people see the beauty in the earth through each other's eyes and how love helps us see the magic in the world.

Ghost

By Eoghan Cleary


We are all defined by our past but sometimes we become what we hate. We have all done and said things we regret and it’s really important to resolve these things or there is a danger we might become what we are avoiding. It’s important to talk to friends or write down these thoughts just to let them go.

Diss-traction|Self-doubt

By Pushkala Yadadu


A state of mind, a verbal play and a self-talk of persuasion. Often, when we brood is when we get distracted. We lose the track of time, the purpose of life and get on a mode of self-criticism. As much as self-contemplation is necessary to keep a track of your game, it often becomes a bone of contention for an anxious running mind. So you become what you think and its overridden by self-doubt. This lyrics is about asking your mind to stay in track.
