    New Song - Weren't mean to live this way

    Just threw this together, kind of tired of writing in minor keys and have the lyrics turn out with sad/melancholic undertones, will try to write a happy one next.
    I dont know if I will record this one, we'll see. Let me know what you think.

    Weren't meant to live this way - Copyrights Mike Duerksen 2007

    This world is black and blue
    But so are you, but so are you
    Sometimes I wonder if we fall
    Who will we call, who will we call

    We werenít meant to live an ordinary life
    We werenít meant to live this way
    We werenít meant to live an ordinary life
    No, we were meant to hope and pray

    One down, and three to go
    All that whatís left, is a hungry crow
    Not everything is what it seems,
    Woulda kept fightiní, if it was me

    We werenít meant to live an ordinary life
    We werenít meant to live this way
    We werenít meant to live an ordinary life
    No, we were meant to hope and pray

    Bridge
    So donít run away,
    Just donít be scared
    Donít be afraid
    Birds singing in the air
    Donít leave this way
    Itís just not fair

    is a hungry crow
    Birds singing in the air

    The two references to the birds doesn't seem to flow for me. They seem to be there just for the rhyme. I'm missing the story behind why they are there.

    This has a strong rockin' feel to it, just reading through it. Definitely move forward with this - it has good feel to it......

    I like the repeats of the first and third lines of the first verse. Perhaps try carrying that through the rest of the song? ido1957 is right. It has a classic rock feel to it. Play with it and see what turns out.

    Thanks guys. The birds reference has a meaning behind it, but the actual sentences dont really work in the song. I work on those lines and throw a very rough mix up sometime soon.
