Hi,
I’m looking for a lyricist/collaborator for various songwriting projects I have in mind.
Above all I’m looking for versatility - whether it be finishing off half-written lyrics, putting words to pre-existing music, or starting songs from scratch.
I also have a few longer-form narrative ideas, so someone who perhaps knows a bit about story structure may be beneficial.

My influences are quite wide - classic 60s/70s pop/rock, Tin Pan Alley, Broadway, all the way to modern pop.

Based in Bristol, UK.
Let me know if you’re interested, I want to get working as soon as possible.

Hey man. We're interested.  Why not post some stuff. Lyrics or music.  There's a lot of diversity on the forum sometimes see how it goes  :)

Yes, interested here too.
Post some half baked ideas and maybe some other one of talent will get on board.
It's either this or that, then again it might be the other. 

And there you have it.

"Bein' Lonely is Baloney"


Been around these parts for a time
awkwardly smiling at a lady I wish was mine
from time to time
I would think I did find
but alas
back to searching for the sound of love in a simple rhyme
it used to be so easy to find
a comfort when the night gets dark and cold
This longing and hoping is getting old
and like a shell game
or a carnival barker
the words become hollower
the more I say them
take a chance
can I have this dance?
won't you slip away with me?
into the light
won't you seek mutual comfort?
everything is gonna be alright
this time
I think I've found the key
the solution is for you
and me
to fly
to give it a try
I'll tell ya
this here Bein' Lonely
well, it's a slab of mute and unforgiving
baloney
but
I haven't given up the search
I survey what I can from an obscured perch
and dream that someday
I will find
Or
it will find me
eventually
I've come close
many a time
thinking
this is it
love is on the way
but
then it all just slips away
again
another flit of the spirit
a jolt of the heart
an uptick of hope
devotion is near
but
then again
I call out
and
no one is nearby
to here it
and
it's been so long
I've even come to fear it
love
four letters that mean less than when I started
four letters on the lips
of the brokenhearted
any other time
I'd pretend that I was fine
but
nowadays
let me count the ways
futility
and loss of drive
but
I still find myself alive
Bein' Lonely is just baloney
though I try...

I'm with John and 'Rightly' and would be game, too :-)

Cheers,
Bernd
