Hello e1, I have posted my lyrics on the lyrics library section of the forum.  It is titled “Waking up to dream.”  Can someone please look at my lyrics and give some insight.  If anyone is interested in coming up with some music for it I would love to hear from you.  Thanks to all who reply.

Title
“Waking up to dream” or “Reality”
Verse 1
When I woke up this morning
I felt so out of place.
My life, it had no meaning
And it hurts to run this race.
But failure’s not an option,
There’s too much here at stake.
I grit my teeth and fight the fight
So that my family won’t break.
Chorus
And I scream
Cause the man that I’ve become,
Is not real
And I feel my journey’s done.
But then I breathe
The first breath of my life
And now I see
For the first time with my eyes,
Reality.
Verse 2
I rise to greet the sunshine
From the comfort of my floor.
I see the pictures on the wall
Of the children I adore.
Where did I lose my footing,
Where did I go astray?
I’ve got to get back on those tracks
So my legacy won’t fade.
Chorus
And I scream
Cause the man that I’ve become,
Is not real
And I feel my journey’s done.
But then I breathe
The first breath of my life
And now I see
For the first time with my eyes,
Reality.
Bridge
Now I don’t know when
I don’t know why
I thought my life was dead,
Cause the book of life
Is written
With a beginning and no end.
Chorus
And I scream
Cause the man that I’ve become,
Is not real
And I feel my journey’s done.
But then I breathe
The first breath of my life
And now I see
For the first time with my eyes,
Reality.

My idea is along, the blues/rnb style with some minor chords falling back into majors.. If I can find time I will put it down and send you a copy of my idea.

That’s actually what i was going for, the blues.  Also i thought of a bluesy reggae sound as well.  don’t know if it would work but who knows, it might.  Thanks, by the way.

Actually i haven’t had any luck with any melodies yet. I would love your help if you don’t mind.  I am no longer interested in making it a blues melody necessarily, just want some music to go along with my lyrics.
Thanks for your time.
