WEEK 2 SAC challenge 2015

OK. So I would love to be able to write a hit pop song…I tried, but I think the style is not mainstream pop. I started with a concept and then lyrics. I listened to Jason Blume’s “writing hit Melodies” CD and used some of the strategies for when writing the lyrics. I then worked on a melody, which I guess is harder then it looks. I think my song is ok, just not what they were asking for. Maybe more contemporary.. Most likely due to the fact I am limited in my production skills along with my vocal range and basic guitar and piano skills, I couldn’t get the feel I wanted for the song, I wonder how it would sound with a pop background?

Here are the lyrics

Keep me in the Dark
A
you’re telling tales, I don’t believe them
D
like what you do all day, when you leave me
BM
Oh you know, you act so smooth,
G
you tell a lie like it’s the truth,
A
you’re so deceiving

but every night with you, feels amazing
oh that thing you do, when you embrace me
forget it all, cause I don’t care,
feels so good, when you’re near,
my heart keeps racing

BM D A
You’ve got me watching the stars up above
hoping they never fade
wishing the sun won’t rise, my love
and you would stay
If the sunlight only tears us apart
Bm
then keep me….keep me in the dark
keep me in the dark
keep me in the dark
keep me in the dark

I need your touch, your affection
You are my high, my addiction
It may be wrong, but feels right
forget the day, we own the night
sweet affliction

BM D A
you’ve got me watching the stars up above
hoping they never fade
wishing the sun won’t rise, my love
and you would stay
If the sunlight only tears us apart
Bm
Then keep me… keep me in the dark
keep me in the dark
keep me in the dark
keep me in the dark

F#m D A

I’d give up all those hot days
beautiful sun rays
to keep this fire alive
to be where you are
where falling stars
shoot across the sky

and If the sunlight only tears us apart
Then keep me… keep me in the dark
keep me in the dark
keep me in the dark
keep me in the dark

keep me in the dark
keep me in the dark
kepp me in the dark
