A Pretty Start

This is just a quick post to keep my blog flowing, I guess . . .

Anyway, the other day, aka yesterday, I was looking at some of my old piano videos on youtube and well, while they are all nostalgic, one of them, in particular, really resonated with me. It's a song I composed; and well, while it's not the greatest of songs, it's my own composition and if I'm not going to be proud of it, no one else will because frankly it's just not good; it's just a simple chord progression and a simple melody, that's it. But I'm still proud!

The song pretty much describes how I was precollege. And, while I'm still kind of lost, I've come a long way, and I guess what I'm trying to say is that I now have a direction.

Note: I'm an unskilled composer and lyricist, so the words of the lyrics are like a syllable-ish per a melody-note (is this accurate music terminology? *shrug*) Um, oh yeah, the verse doesn't start immediately, there's sort of an instrumental prelude. I probably should just sing this instead of describing this but I have an awful voice, so that's definitely not going to happen. This is, um, more of a "this is who I am" song than a billboard number one hit. So I hope you enjoy it  . . .

Title: A Pretty Start

Rough Lyrics:

I'm living my life,
I don't know what to do,
Trying to fit in, I guess.

I'm undecided,
And it's okay, why?
Cause I'm in control.

A pretty start,
I want it now,
Please dear, give me my start.

A pretty start,
It starts right now,
I know, I will be someone!
