some song lyrics for you guys

Forums: 

Hi, I'm a poet new to this site, but I'm also a songwriter, and my friend Teddy wanted me to share some lyrics so here is, for your entertainment, "Baby, I'm Home". Much like Jason Aldean's "Dirt Road Anthem", this too is a feel-good-coming-home country song, except I added a few verses about my ex. Only moderate constructive criticism please if you're gonna give feedback.

Baby, I’m Home

Yeah I’m cruising down my drive. It’s been a long day, time to unwind.
I’m home, yeah baby I’m home. I open the door and the day just fades away. And I think to myself, I just want to stay.
And not go out, the very next day though I’ll want to.
What we had was good, it was fun. While it lasted, but we’re done. Oh it was great, holding you for a while.
Though you say your name looks good on my phone. Don’t bother calling, leave me the hell alone.
I don’t want to get back with you. Yeah baby we’re through.

Yeah, cause you didn’t know how to be with me.
Baby, that’s on you, not on me.
I’m doing just fine. I’m better off living without you.
And as the cold wind blows on those dark winter nights.
I still think of your warmth, although you’re no longer mine.
I’m doing just fine. I’m better off living without you.
Baby, I’m Home
Yeah I’m cruising down my drive. I think I’ll go out and have a good time. See some old friends, along with Bailey and Jim. I’m switchin’ gears and turning up my songs. It’s Friday night, and Skynard’s on.
‘Cuz nothin’ can bring me down now, baby not even you.

Yeah, cause you didn’t know how to be with me.
Baby, that’s on you, not on me.
I’m doing just fine. I’m better off living without you.
And as the cold wind blows on those dark winter nights.
I still think of your warmth, although you’re no longer mine.
I’m doing just fine. I’m better off living without you.
Yeah I’m cruising down my drive. It’s been a long day, time to unwind.
I’m home, yeah baby I’m home. I open the door and the day just fades away. And I think to myself, I just want to stay.
I’m home, yeah baby I’m home.

I’m home, yeah baby I’m home.

Yeh baby, I can hear you! Wow, I feel so humbled to read your lyrics I always wanted to try writing a song, I'm a country fan too, may I say I am of the era of Shania twain well I was in my mid 20's, yet my mother was a massive fan of all country and I was totally brought up on it. I adore music I think it's important for the soul and even my young son loves the Beatles he is only 7, I feel rather proud of that. X

Thank you...Teddy

Wow, I'm humbled by your comment, Teddy!!! Really am.

These are fantastic lyrics, and ten times better than anything I could ever writer! They feel very much like a song, and Skynard means you've got good taste in music too!! Amazing job, and I can't wait to see more from you! :D

Thank you, Asche. I appreciate that. Songwriting is not as easy as poetry. (my dad brought me up on Skynard, although my mom did most of the raising)

I lOVE TO WRITE SONGS!!! I just have trouble working on writing the music behind them. You got any tips?

There are plenty out there even in high school level and above that can compose. Show them your lyrics and maybe a recording of anyone of them by you and it can just be a rough recording to give a composer some direction.
it really is an easy thing to ask a composer to have a look at some lyrics that you wrote and even better if a composer asks if you have a sample of it. Sounds like you may have many so put your best foot forward and maybe ask a high school or college music director to point you in a good direction with some names.

This moves nicely I see you have talent. I would love to hear you sing it though. We have used soundcloud a lot in the past here: https://soundcloud.com/
It's free and you could look for our Neopoet account or wait here: https://soundcloud.com/neopoet
So it is one way to be heard between us all on Neopoet. I'd like to hear you recite or even sing these lyrics.
Thanks and I hope this was good information for you and all.
Remember there are lyricists and composers and performers and to do all takes a ton of acquired skills along with talent - education.
