Invisible

Morning!

I wrote a poem at the weekend that turned into a song...the thing is...its quite personal...and I just keep singing it in my head...maybe if I appeal once again, a nice musician will stop by and add some music?! Even if they don't I will work towards getting some music for it, even if it requires me learning an instrument of some sort...I hope you like it. I see it as very much a ballad/love song full of love, angst and hope. Comments welcome but please be gentle.

I used to wake up almost everyday
thinking if there could be some other way
that I could make you notice me
standing by your side
You made me think that it was me and wonder if you would ever see
that I never really wanted to be
invisible.

But it’s just one of those days,
when whatever I say
Is lost in the atmosphere,
Never reaching to your ears
Flying off to outer space
being heard in some other place
I might as well be talking to myself
I might as well be talking to myself

Every day that passed
Was just another strain on my heart
Always feeling lonely even when we were together
Watching everyone be seen by you
as you heard everything they said
I never wanted to be
invisible

But it’s just one of those days,
when whatever I say
Is lost in the atmosphere
Never reaching to your ears,
Flying off to outer space,
being heard in some other place.
I might as well be talking to myself
I might as well be talking to myself

I had nothing left to give and there was no solution I hadn’t tried
But I couldn’t save us on my own and didn’t want to have to
I’ll hold the memories tight
All the times we, all the words we,
and all the happiness there had been
I’ll forget the loneliness, the fights and the tears,
I’ll leave you with a clean slate but know
I never wanted to be
invisible

But it’s just one of those days,
when whatever I say
Is lost in the atmosphere
Never reaching to your ears,
Flying off to outer space,
being heard in some other place.
I might as well be talking to myself
I might as well be talking to myself

If I ever fall in love again,
It won’t ever be the same
I’ll be heard above the noise
I will always have a choice
I never want to be invisible again.


NB: I do think that if I make this into a song then obviously some tweaks might need to be made without losing the essence.

  3. I think it'll make a good song, depending on the music of course. I'll ask a couple of musicians I know to look and see what they think.
    It's a sentiment that's universal. I guess we all think we're invisible at one time or another. As long as you know you're not. You're in too many hearts to be invisible. :)
