My Mind is Blank!
I try to create!
There is noting in there!
My Mind is Blank!
I hear music, but I can not create!
My Mind is Blank!
I want to create, but can’t think straight!
My Mind is blank!
I hear what you say, and try to obey!
My Mind is blank!
I want to convey, what my Mind wants to say!
My Mind is Blank!


I have nothing to say, and I am saying it, and that is poetry as I need it!

See, you are writing a song!


There is never enough time to be in a hurry...

You're a poet and didn't know it!

Well not to spoil the mood, but it will require music of some sort.

Well there’s another problem. I have never set anything to music.

Just sing it to yourself until something clicks.

I've never "set" anything to music either, I just goof around until I find something that amuses me.

That’s the problem. I can’t sing!

Bernie Taupin can't either. But Elton John sets his poems to music. They've been a team since the beginning.

There are plenty of lyricists/poets who can't play music but have teamed up with musicians who can't write lyrics.

That was my thought, exactly!

This.

And most people that I've known who said they cannot sing simply don't allow themselves to try.
That said, some people truly cannot sing. My Dad could not sing, play an instrument, keep time etc.
He would put the "Dentist Office" channel on the radio and sort of whistle along with no regard for melody or timing whatsoever.
A fascinating and important influence on me musically since I found it impossible to emulate...
