I write songs and play a few chords on the guitar.
English is my second language but I harbour thoughts of commanding it well.
In my songs I try to manifest elements of humour that English language offers

Hello and welcome!
Where are you from?

I have often thought that artists who write in English but it is their second language produce very poetic lyrics...perhaps sometimes as a result of interesting translations :D. The Tallest Man On Earth for example.

Probably those of us who have English as a first language need to pick up a theasarus more often :D

Hi!

You already know English better than I know any other language. So well done!

Thanks a lot. I have stepped out of character just to honour your " combined lyrics"; a cunning notion...

Hello to you, and, thank you for inspiring me to jot down these lyrics tonight:


SOLACE

I’l relax tonight
Sip a cuppa -have a bite
Sleep in tight

I breathe in roars
That man tarred my nook and oiled my shores
He throttles planes and revs up 4x4s…
And calls me leper for smoking indoors

I breathe out , now
One of these days I’ll get that man somehow
When pigs fly I might even have a row
But,tonight he gets a back-aching bow

I’ll relax tonight
Sip a cuppa-have a bite
Sleep in tight

I just can't think of any relaxing and sorrowful musical arrangement, but it will come to me.
Thank you!
