Bad Love: 52 Songs In 52 Weeks — Song #36

“Bad Love” is my 36th demo in my songwriting challenge called “52 Songs In 52 Weeks.”

Lyrics for “Bad Love”

Baby set me free
Come on let me be
Who I need to be
Who I was before

When I walk away
How you make me ache
Honey set me free
I don’t want your loving no more

Chorus
It’s a bad love (It’s a mad love, it’s a bad love)
It’s a bad love (It’s a mad love, it’s a bad love)
It’s a bad love (It’s a mad love, it’s a bad love)
It’s a one way love
It’s a one way love

The ways you pull me back
You’re everywhere I go
When I’m with my friends
I’m never really home alone

You offer just a taste
You come knocking on my door
Honey set me free
I don’t want your loving no more

Chorus
It’s a bad love (It’s a mad love, it’s a bad love)
It’s a bad love (It’s a mad love, it’s a bad love)
It’s a bad love (It’s a mad love, it’s a bad love)
It’s a one way love
It’s a one way love

Bridge
Where you decide what’s real
And just how I feel
If I’m going to soar or slip and fade
You give the love that takes it all away

Solo

Chorus
It’s a bad love (It’s a mad love, it’s a bad love)
It’s a bad love (It’s a mad love, it’s a bad love)
It’s a bad love (It’s a mad love, it’s a bad love)
It’s a one way love
It’s a one way love

Chorus
It’s a bad love (It’s a mad love, it’s a bad love)
It’s a bad love (It’s a mad love, it’s a bad love)
It’s a bad love (It’s a mad love, it’s a bad love)
It’s a one way love
It’s a one way love

April’s Fool (6th Street Girl): 52 Songs In 52 Weeks — Song #35

“April’s Fool (6th Street Girl)” is song 35 in my songwriting challenge called “52 Songs In 52 Weeks.” I’ve been working on this song for awhile, and finally finished it up.

Lyrics for April’s Fool

April’s lovin’ is the cruelest kind
I can have it some, but never say its mine

I’ve been April’s toy for 12 months now
If we’re headed somewhere I can’t see how

All the nights I wait
She’s out clubbing with her friends
She only texts me late
It’s the message that she sends

Chorus
No one else is like her
She’s so cool
No one else is like her
I’m April’s fool
No one else is like, no one else is like her

I’m April’s fool when she plays it cruel
But I’m April’s plan when she needs a man

When the night gets deep
And her friends have gone to bed
She can act so sweet
It really messes with my head

Chorus
No one else is like her
She’s so cool
No one else is like her
I’m April’s fool
No one else is like, no one else is like her

Bridge
She’s no Lady Jane
I’m no Duke of Earl
It’s a dirty low down shame
I’ve fallen for a 6th Street girl
A 6th Street girl
A 6th Street girl

Chorus
No one else is like, no one else is like her
She’s so cool
No one else is like, no one else is like her
I’m April’s fool
No one else is like, no one else is like her
Her love’s so cruel
No one else is like, no one else is like her
I’m April’s fool
No one else is like, no one else is like her
April’s love is the cruelest kind, yeah

It Feels Like Coming Home Again: 52 Songs In 52 Weeks — Song #33

“It Feels Like Coming Home Again” is my 33rd song in my songwriting challenge called “52 Songs In 52 Weeks.”

They say you can’t come home again
It’s just a distant dream
But I feel it in my bones, my friend
That’s good enough for me

Chorus
I’m home, home, home
I’m home, home, home
I’m home, home, home
I’m home, home

Feels like coming home again
In a different scene
Feels like coming home again
In a place I’ve never been

Chorus
I’m home, home, home
I’m home, home, home
I’m home, home, home
I’m home, home

Bridge (Instrumental)

I’ve wandered cold and distant lands
Sailed the wine-dark sea
It wasn’t till we first locked eyes
Home found its way to me

Chorus
I’m home, home, home
I’m home, home, home
I’m home, home, home
I’m home, home

Let It Be, Set You Free: 52 Songs In 52 Weeks — Song #32

I’ve got just a few more days left in my songwriting challenge called “52 Songs In 52 Weeks.” I’ll write a wrap up and lessons learned later this month. Meanwhile, take a listen to “Let It Be, Set You Free,” which is the 32nd song in the series.

Lyrics for Let It Be, Set You Free
I’ve spent so long
Running around
I couldn’t tell you
Where I’d be found

I’ve spent so long
Rehashing the past
Woke up one morning
I was quite aghast

Chorus
Oh, just let it be
And set you free

I made quite a mess
Tried to clean it up
Peace and quiet
Took some years to fill my cup

I think about my friends
What we do and say
I can be myself now
Not my yesterdays

Chorus
Oh, just let it be
And set you free

Guitar solo

Getting out of bed
Clearing out my head
Oh, what a dream it is
Being here instead

Chorus
Oh, just let it be
And set you free

Chorus
Oh, just let it be
And set you free

Make My Luck: 52 Songs In 52 Weeks — Song #31

“Make My Luck” is the 31st song in my songwriting challenge called “52 Songs In 52 Weeks.”

Part of this is where I come from
Part of this is where I’ve been
Part of this is where I’m going
Don’t get in my way, my friend

Pre-chorus
My some day
My some day is now
My some day
Oh, my some day is now

Chorus
I make my luck
When I hit the streets
Yeah, I make my money
When they’re indiscreet

Life shaped me like a fisherman’s knife
Yeah, my grandpa was a trilobite
And I don’t give up
When I’ve set my mind
You know, I’m a primitive guy

Pre-chorus
My some day
My some day is now
My some day
Oh, my some day is now

Chorus
I make my luck
When I hit the streets
Yeah, I make my money
When they’re indiscreet

Chorus
I make my luck
When I hit the streets
Yeah, I make my money
When they’re indiscreet

Chorus
I make my luck
When I hit the streets
Yeah, I make my money
When they’re indiscreet

You Make Me Feel High

“You Make Me Feel High” is the 30th song in my songwriting challenge that I call “52 Songs In 52 Weeks.”

Now that you’re with me
Things feel so right
Stepping out of the shadows
Into the light

Now we’re together
You’re by my side
The way that you love me
Makes me feel high

Chorus
Make me feel high
Make me feel high

Now that you’re with me
Days slip away
Your touch and your feel
Things that you say

Down by the water
You understand
Sharing a secret
We start to plan

Chorus
Make me feel high
Make me feel high

Solo

Bridge
In the days before I found you you
I was restless, nothing to do
In the days before I knew you
The sun was dim
Life cold and so blue
Code blue

Chorus
You make me feel high
You make me feel high
You make me feel high
You make me feel high
Oh, you make me feel high
