Hi, I’m a singer who needs help writing a song. I wanted to write about something I was going through recently, in which a guy just kind of ghosted on me and ignorning me, which left me confused and heart broken, especially because it seems like every other guy sees me but him. I really wanted to express my emotions in a song but i’m literally a horrible songwriter, I overthink everything. My singing style is often compared to Ariana Grande, for its airy qualitys but the main genre I focus on and listen to is R/B , Alternative Pop, and Trap Soul, which reflects heavily on my sound as well. I would want the song in a style Frank Ocean would sing and or write something, he’s an amazing lyricist. Jhene Aiko is also great. Below are some sentences that came to mind after what happened did in no order as well as some beats I hoped to write this song to. Please help me guys lol.

You broke my heart last week,
I thought I safety glued it from the last time,
Last time I thought would be the last time.
and maybe you want to keep things mutual between us,
guess that means the feelings aren’t mutual between us,

if you don’t belong,
then don’t be long here,

you say you dont belong,
but you’ve been long here

we were like summer, coastin’
but its the coldest winter now since
you went ghostin’

i just want some of your time,
if you want to pretend we’re in love,
then that’s fine


love is blind, are you blind to me?
everyone else sees me,
cant keep your eyes to me

my love for you is as deep as the ocean and i cant swim,
why do you let me drown why wont
you dive in?

now i’m alone,
heart taken up by someone
i can’t call my own

no i don’t love him,
but he’s there for me,
much more than you,
steer clear from

If I’m being honest ,
This #### hurt
If you being honest ,
You never were

I don’t trust nobody
I want u on my body,
What if u want me for my body

I lose myself , I hideaway,
You break me down, my soul decay

they all seen it going down ,
Could’ve told me,
Sorry not sorry ,
I couldn’t keep being lonely

I see you like fish see land,
So like never ,

I thought I only tripped over you,
But I fell,

Imma get high over you,
Cuz I don’t want to cry over you.

i just want to be happy,
but i cant be happy if youre not mine

all i want to do is be the one that you want,
but you only seem to want me when your hands on a blunt

Drink till the bottles dry,
And all my tears have dried.

I just want your company,
but you never come to me.


Ignore

I think the subject needs a faster beat, more danceable than your examples, a Lyric more confrontational in attitude about the ghostin’ concept. In reality, somebody ghostin’ you should be ghosted too. If someone doesn’t see you they might be doing you a favor.

Ghostin’ Me (Lyric © January 7, 2017 by Gary E. Andrews. and SkyLauren, All Rights Reserved.)
(10 to 14 seconds Introductory Movement; just get the groove goin’, makin’ ‘em move.)
(Open with the Chorus maybe:)

Hey man! Why you Ghostin’ Me?
I’m no ghost that you can’t see!
Are you gonna pedal?
Are you just coastin’?
Why you ghostin’, Ghostin’ Me?
Why you ghostin’, Ghostin’ Me?

(Verse)
I see you at the club.
I know you see me.
I thought it was the crowd
kept comin’ in between.
I fin’ally figured out
you’ve been Ghostin’ Me!

Hey man! Why you Ghostin’ Me?
I’m no ghost that you can’t see!
Are you gonna pedal?
Are you just coastin’?
Why you ghostin’, Ghostin’ Me?
Why you ghostin’, Ghostin’ Me?

I try to track you down!
You slip away from me!
You look into your drink
instead of facin’ me.
Don’t get me lyin’ now!
You’ve been Ghostin’ Me.

Hey man! Why you Ghostin’ Me?
I’m no ghost that you can’t see!
Are you gonna pedal?
Are you just coastin’?
Why you ghostin’, Ghostin’ Me?
Why you ghostin’, Ghostin’ Me?

(Bridge) (A variation to break the monotony of repeat, so you CAN repeat the Chorus to end. But that only makes a little over 1 minute)
If that’s how it is
I’ll set you free!
I won’t haunt you!
You won’t haunt me!
I’m ghostin’ you!
You’re Ghostin’ Me!

Hey man! Why you Ghostin’ Me?
I’m no ghost that you can’t see!
Are you gonna pedal?
Are you just coastin’?
Why you ghostin’, Ghostin’ Me?
Why you ghostin’, Ghostin’ Me?

Why don’t you wanna dance?
I know that you do!
I see you in the back
Your body wants to move!
I fin’ally figured out
you’ve been Ghostin’ Me!

Hey man! Why you Ghostin’ Me?
I’m no ghost that you can’t see!
Are you gonna pedal?
Are you just coastin’?
Why you ghostin’, Ghostin’ Me?
Why you ghostin’, Ghostin’ Me?

I see you at the club.
I know you see me.
I thought it was the crowd
kept comin’ in between.
I fin’ally figured out
you’ve been Ghostin’ Me!

Hey man! Why you Ghostin’ Me?
I’m no ghost that you can’t see!
Are you gonna pedal?
Are you just coastin’?
Why you ghostin’, Ghostin’ Me?
Why you ghostin’, Ghostin’ Me?
Hey man! Why you Ghostin’ Me?

Hey! Ghostbuster! Who you gonna call?

(Keeping it to about 3 minutes for radio play. Stretch to 4 or 5 for club play. Instrumental Bridge, or two. Repeat verses. Whatever.)

There will always be another song to be written. Someone will write it. Why not you? http://www.garyeandrews.com

The lyrics are actually good..
You may have to change it a bit depending on the beat…From the heart… is real…a bit long, chorus is great..Don’t mess around too much with it.
