So I had an idea for a song. I have most of the lyrics, which you will find down below. I am working on a melody at the same time, which seems to want to come out as a mix of ‘Always a Woman’ by Billy Joel, ‘Learn Me Right’ from ‘Brave’, and ‘If I’m Being Honest’ by Dodie. We’ll see how it turns out, but for now enjoy the lyrics!

I’ll tell you a story
I found by myself
An old dusty thing I found high on the shelf
I’m not very tall
And I know I might fall
But if I didn’t try you would hear just nothing at all

Oh listen to my journey
Listen to the ways I took to find you
Oh listen to my story
Listen to me and I’ll tell you the ways that I love you

I’ve found you a story
All on my own
But you are now in it and I can see now that I’ve grown
You finished the story
You wrote me the end
And then you began it anew with you as my best friend

And now
I can tell you a tale
Of adventures so far and the ships we’re ready to sail
But where
Oh where will it go
If I had my way I’d make it that we’d never know
Oh we’d never know
We’ll just have to flow

Oh listen to my journey
Listen to the ways I took to find you
Oh listen to my story
Listen to me and I’ll tell you the ways that I love you
