    Broke 7 years of writer's block!

    Time flies when you're having fun (hey...good idea for another song).

    I can't believe it's been 7 years since I wrote a song and got it on tape. I went through a period a few years back where I was fairly prolific, getting 20+ songs out. Some good, some terrible, but songs nonetheless. Lots of good feedback from this forum pushed me to always try to do better.

    Life gets in the way and time passes.

    Anyway, recently I had an idea for a song banging around in my head, and at some point I had hummed a tune into my phone.

    The two finally came together with the help of RhymeZone.com (as always) and I forced myself to write the song.

    To complete the long story...here it is:
    Palm Trees and Eighty Degrees

    V1
    HE CAME FROM THE CREST OF THE COLD NORTHWEST
    KNOWING THE SOUND OF THE SEA
    BUT SOMETHING DREW HIM TO THE COLOUR OF BLUE
    AND THE SHADE OF A COCONUT TREE

    Pre-CHORUS 1
    AS HE SAT ON THE SAND WITH A DRINK IN HIS HAND
    HERE IS WHAT HE SAID TO ME…

    CH
    JUST GIVE ME PALM TREES AND EIGHTY DEGREES
    WHITE SAND AND A TROPICAL BREEZE
    PALM TREES AND EIGHTY DEGREES
    AND I MIGHT STAY A WHILE

    V2
    THERE’S MUCH YOU COULD SAY ABOUT MIST ON THE BAY
    RAIN ON A COOL AFTERNOON
    BUT SOMETIMES, YOU SEE…SUMMER NEEDS TO COME TO ME
    AND I CAN’T ALWAYS WAIT UNTIL JUNE

    Pre-CHORUS 2
    AS HE MOVED FROM THE SUN TO THE SHADE WITH HIS RUM
    HE LOOKED OVER HIS SHOULDER AND SMILED

    CH
    JUST GIVE ME PALM TREES AND EIGHTY DEGREES
    SALTY AIR AND A WARM SEA BREEZE
    PALM TREES AND EIGHTY DEGREES
    AND I MIGHT STAY A WHILE

    Pre-CHORUS 3
    THE CONVERSATION WE HAD WAS MORE HAPPY THAN SAD
    AND I KNEW WHAT HE SAID WAS TRUE

    JUST GIVE ME PALM TREES AND EIGHTY DEGREES
    NOWHERE NEAR ANY PLACE THAT CAN FREEZE
    PALM TREES AND EIGHTY DEGREES
    AND THIS JUST MIGHT BE HOME
