"I'm Always There For You"

Recommended Posts

This song is basically about what my gf went through b4 she meant me. Anyway I hope you guys like it it's just lyrics but anyway you can read them.

 

She’s been hurt so many times before

By people she thought she knew, and could trust

The hurt is unbearable

She has memories

She can’t erase

 

On the inside it’s like her heart is dieing

On the outside she breaks down, and cries

Her hurt, pain, and the memories away

Until there’s no tears left from her eyes

 

Chorus

I Know

It feels like you’ve lost everything that you’ve known

You cannot survive alone

It feels like you’ve lost everything that you’ve known

 

But now I know how much you need me

To be there when you need me at your side

To wipe the tears from your eyes

I’m there for you always

 

Chorus

I know

It feels like you’ve lost everything that you’ve known

You cannot survive alone

It feels like you’ve lost everything that you’ve known

 

But now I know how much you need me

To be there when you call

To be there to watch over you

I’m there for you always

 

I’m there for you always

I’m there for you always

I’m there for you always

I’m there for you always

A group of words with no notation or melody that hasn't been ever sung or perhaps cannot be sung...That's what we call a poem.

Yeah, and is A/B/A/B style I think he's sticking to too much, dont worry about rhyming -- half the songs nowadays have random words in there. lol

chc is absolutely right. It needs something random in there. Something like:

I like pork

I like ham

Put them together and you got spam...

It's true though. If you know the history of it all..

 

Ham + Spice = Spiced Ham

SPiced HAm --> SPAM (They were used by soldiers during one of the major wars)

 

Many years later....

 

SPAM (Meat) --> SPAM (Junk mail)

For example, this can be broken down.

Well, in terms of song making, usually:

 

1) Get the tune first!!

2) You need to find someone suitable with personality and mood and kind of vocie to sing it

3) Get the lyrics

4) Polish it and make it fit

5) Control flow

6) Digital editing (Its hard to know where to make effects and enhance stuff. I am learning these)

 

 

I know some songs with lyrics partially written before the tune, but these kind of song creation methods are out of reach of amateurs like us (Y)

From what I can see from his lyrics, its not an upbeat fast song, it should have a saddish tone to it... so make it a little slower.

You'll need a tonal/tempo transition from

On the outside she breaks down, and cries

Her hurt, pain, and the memories away

Until there’s no tears left from her eyes

to

 

But now I know how much you need me

To be there when you need me at your side

To wipe the tears from your eyes

Also for song pattern following:

 

Verse 1 --> Chorus --> Verse 2 --> Chorus --> Transition --> Chorus

 

Usually at the end chorus people do a little mix between Verse 1 and chorus or something to that extent. This is the most common way of writing songs, as seen in majority of Linkin Park or Kelly Clarkson or basically any of the latest hits. Linkin Park is sometimes a bit unique, Numb does not follow this entirely. Usually they like to mix chorus with verse 1 like Since U Been Gone or Because of You, but In The End follows this almost one to one.

 

Or:

 

Chorus --> Verse 1 --> Bridge --> Chorus --> Verse 2 --> Bridge --> Chorus --> (Minor transition) --> Chorus + bridge (End)

 

That's Easier to Run from Linkin Park, a little more complicated. Try looking at Breaking the Habit, the got a good use of bridges where he goes like "I don't want to be the one.." and so on.

No no ^^ is waaaayyy too complicated and commonly used.

 

Go for something original

 

instrumental melody => chorus => chorus a fourth higher => instrumental counterpoint => verse 1 lowest part => verse 1 going up the scale => instrumental melody => chorus => tempo transition => mellow melody (use alliteration (Y) jk) => sudden chorus, stop.

You mean acepella? That's really hard and I don't think current (modern) artists are capable of that. Unless you're talking about contemporary solo'ing.

You mean a capella? You know thats like the basic entry requirement for American Idol... yes sing a capella... so I think theres quite a bit of people that can actually do that.
