Here is a song form the horse's point of view to slaughter.


“Too Late”


Dark, dark, alley ways, when I close my eyes to get this nightmare over with, it doesn’t go away
And when I go through the halls, I recognize it’s not normal here
Horses neighing in pain, gently fading away
I don’t wanna be here, they don’t want me
And…It’s too late to apologize-and I think I’m losin’ my mind
My knees buckle with every step I take-neighing to the other horses. They just neigh back, sympathy in their eyes to where my fate lies.
It’s too ate to apologize! My life at risk doesn’t go away! And when I close my mind it gets worse by the day!
It’s too late to apologize-the damage has already been done

I've never tryed writing a song until now...so, this is what I've come up with so far.

Gray skies loom over my shoulder,
emptiness fills my heart.
When will this silence be over?
This silence that tears us apart.

So, thats my first attempt....

Here's one I wrote for a school project on Earth Day.
 

Did you ever think about the animals

Who have to die for your fur coats?

Did you ever think about the animals

Who have to die for your hot dogs?

Did you ever think how lucky we are

To be human beings

Who can have anything they want?

Think for a minute

If you were a cow

You wouldn’t want to be killed

So a human could have dinner.

Think for a minute

If you were a fox

You wouldn’t want to be killed

So a human could wear a coat.

Just let the animals be lucky-

Like humans.

Just let the animals be lucky-

Like us.

We don’t get killed

For people to have coats

We don’t get killed

For people to have dinner.

We’re lucky.

Let animals be lucky, too.

 

My class thought it was funny.

 

Shalom,

Here's my favorite song. I didn't write it. It was written during the Holocaust.
 
I believe in the sun
Even when it is not shining.
And I believe in love
Even when there's no one there.
And I believe in G-d
Even when he is silent.
I believe through any trial
There is always a way.
 
But sometimes in this suffering
And hopeless despair
My heart cries for shelter
To know someone's there.
But a voice rises within me
Saying, "Hold on, my child."
"I'll give you strength, I'll give you hope.
"Just stay a little while."
 
I believe in the sun
Even when it is not shining.
And I believe in love
Even when there's no one there.
 
But I believe in G-d
Even when he is silent.
I believe through any trial
There is always a way.
 
May there someday be sunshine.
May there someday be happiness.
May there someday be love.
May there someday be peace.
 
 
I did NOT write this. Do NOT give me credit for it. It's called Inscription of Hope. I sang it in a concert with my choir. It was written during the Holocaust, so how could I have written it? I'm eleven years old!
 
Goodbye for now,
magic*esi

This is my song that I wrote. It's about how Becky feels in Tom Sawyer when Tom is flirting with Amy Laurence and Becky's flirting with Alfred.
 

You make her laugh I laugh louder pretend

That what he says is funny

You hold her hand

Please don’t pretend

That you really love her

 

You don’t like her I don’t like him

It’s all a part of the game

Breathe out breathe in try to stay in the game

We’ll go to the ends of the earth

To try to make each other jealous

 

She flirts with you you’re getting bored

Still you keep your head in the game

We’re giving up they feel ignored

Why cant things always stay the same?

 

i'm probably going to write more songs later. This one is not very good.

Open Your Eyes

I look at you

You lo-ok a-at me

In our eyes there’s

Something hidden slight-e-ly


I’m falling down

Into-o yo-our arms

Can’t you see that

This was meant to-o be?


Chorus

Can’t you see

The sky-y i-is weeping?

Can’t you see how

The-e wi-ind blows?

Listen well

For na-atu-ure’s speaking

Open your eyes


The world is dark

The sky-y i-is gray

My will to live

Is slowly dying a-away


With every step

My tho-oughts clamor more

Isn't it obvious

All I think of i-is you!


Chorus


Why is it that you cannot see

The pain that you are causing me

Why do you seem to turn away

When you see me every day

I see you

Lookin' at me

Starin' at me

I know you're

Thinkin' of me

So why are you avoiding me?

Why won't you talk to me

Like we used to talk----

What did I do wro-o-o-o-o-ong?


Why can't you see

You're hurting me

I feel myself fading away

I need you now

More than ever

But you refuse to talk to me


But now I see

It's not o-only you

I've been avoiding you too

We must be brave

We must admit

That all we ever think of is each o-other


I mi-i-iss you!


Can't you see

The sky-y i-is weeping

Can't you see how

The-e wi-ind blows

Listen well

For na-atu-ure's speaking

Open your


Oh!


I mu-ust be brave

I mu-ust be strong

The path I take

Is winding now


I do not know

Where I should go

But I'll follow this path

If it leads me to-o you!


Yeah!


Can't you see

You see!

The sky-y i-is we-eping

Weeping!

Can't you see

Oh!

How the-e wi-ind blows

Whoa!

Listen well (Listen we-e-e-e-ell)

For na-atu-ure's spe-eaking

Open your

Open your

Open your eyes!


Be brave!

I Wanna Know


I wanna know

Why you do

The things that you-u do

I wanna see

Why it is

That you push me a-away


I wanna hear

The rea-ason

Why

You seem

To not care

Anymore


You said you lo-oved me

That all you thought about was me

So why did you push me away

You-u said

That without me

Your life was incomplete


So why

Suddenly

Do you walk away from me?

Do you flirt with other girls?

Do you act like I'm not even there?


You said that

Forever was

The word to use when

Describing you and me

You said that

Our love was

As steady as a star

So then

What happened?

Is forever not that long?

Did the star explode

And turn to nothing-- at all?

I wanna know


You've left me alone

Standing here

In a place of midnight cold

All alone

With nothing to hold

Why

Why is all I wanna know

I wanna know

I wanna know

Right now


You said that

Forever was

The word to use when

Describing you and me

You said that

Our love was

As steady as a star

So then

What happened?

Is forever not that long?

Did the star explode

And turn to nothing-- at all?

I wanna know


You said that

Witho-out me

Your life was barely worth living

I said that

Without you

I'd have nothing to believe in


I spoke the truth

But you don't seem to care

I don't know why

I wanna know

I wanna know

I wanna know


Oh-oh-o-o-o-oh


I wanna


You said that

Forever was

The word to use when

Describing you and me

You said that

Our love was

As steady as a star

So then

What happened?

Is forever not that long?

Did the star explode

And turn to nothing-- at all?

I wanna know (I wanna know)

I wanna know (I wanna kno-ow)

I wanna know

I wanna know

I wanna know---

But i'll stand here forever,

To convince you.
And that may be...
Forever.

You said you were glad I was me.

You said I brightened your day.

I said, that's a lie.

 

Do you care that I'm all alone?

Do you know that I wear a mask of smiles?

Do you realize I'm falling, falling in despair?

 

[bridge 1] I'm all alo-one,

You never kne-ew.

I'm on the outside and it's so cold!

 

I told that everything's all right

but in my head I cried,

cri-i-ied that I couldn't tell the truth.

 

I look around me and see the people there,

but they aren't really my friends.

They don't know who I am.

 

[bridge 2] It's so lonely where I stand.

I cry a million tears when you turn your back,

Cuz I'm on the outside looking in.

 

My friends never write,

they hardly check their emails,

Never answer the phone.

 

Do they know how many screams I hold back?

Do they think of me while they laugh with their other friends?

Do they care that I'm crying, crying for them to notice me?

 

[bridge 1] I'm all alone,

You never knew.

I'm on the outside and it's so cold!

 

I try to talk, try to spill the beans,

but you just wave me away,

tell me to keep my thought 'till another day.

 

I don't understand why I feel so different.

But I'm wearing a stone around my chest.

I'm on the outside, and nobody ever lets me in!

 

[chorus??] It's so lonely where I stand,

I cry a million tears when you turn your back

cuz I'm on the outside looking in.

I'm all alone

you never knew

I'm on the outside and its so cold!

 

[ending #1]You said you were glad I was me.

You said I brightened your day.

I said, that's a lie.

[alternate ending:] I'm on the outside and all alo-one...


I wrote this song when I was going through a really tough time in my life.  Sometimes I sing it when I'm having a hard day, because it expresses so perfectly for me the feeling of having to unload and vent but feeling like you cant; and nobody knows how you feel.

Here's a song I just thought of.
                           Why Me
 The endless triangle -- two girls and a boy.
 The wind of chance has taken my heart to rip and rend,
 She turns around and smirks at me, hanging on to him;
 Hey traitor, I thought you were my friend.
CHORUS: Why was I the one betrayed, why was she the one that did it,
 Where's the reason in this rigmarole of pain,
 Three hearts straining, all wishing to be free,
 But they cannot break the chain.
 Why was it him, why was it her, why me.
 I did not see it coming 'til she stabbed me in the back,
 Then stood back and watched me nearly die,
 Stealing him away without a backward glance,
 And I'm still looking for the reason why.
CHORUS
 Well I will never really know why she turned false on me,
 And my heart will keep bleeding for a while,
 But time heals every wound, as it will this one too,
 So I... will try... to bring myself.... to... smile.
REPEAT CHORUS TWICE
 Oooohhhhhh,
 Can... someone... please tell me...
 Why was it... mee-ee-ee?
                     Miss X
*I thought you lived at a school*

I'm new to THE STACKS and i want to know what you think of this song...

I've been alone for some time

I've cried for days upon days

I honestly thought you were mine

But it seems like i was in a daze

I've turned people down for you

Never once did i say yes

C'mon boo, Can't you see i love you

You treatin' me like i'm some kinda pest.....

 

I'm not finished with the song yet but tell me what you thinkblush

Ok, this is my song! Not my best work but it's pretty good. Tell me what ya think!cheeky

Smile                                                                                                                                                                      

(verse 1)                                       

Just yesterday it felt like summer                                                                                                                      

 Now I'm standin' in the rain yeah oh-o-o-ooh

Ohhhhh...... I............                                                                                                                                     

(Chorus)                                                                                                                                                          

Smile in the rain                                                                                                                                          

And hop in the puddles                                                                                                                                     

It's kinda like a fairytale              

But no fancy dresses and everything else                                                                                        

I know I'll find a way to                                                                                                                        

  la la la lala ooo woah... dada da daa                 

(bridge)

Now I know a smile on this face of mine                                                                                                          

 Won't get me to far                                                                                                                                      

 But.... for now....      

(Chorus reprise)

I'll smile in the rain                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

And hop in the puddles                                                                                                                        

It's kind of like a fairy tale......

(Bridge )

I know I must be dreaming but I'm no-o-ot                                                                                      

'Cause winter's nearly here..                                                                                                                            

I still wish I could                                                                                                                                

I still want to....

(Chorus )

Smile in the rain                                                                                                                                          

And hop in the puddles                                                                                                                        

It's kind of like a fairy ta-a-ail                                                                                                                    

But it's not!
