Default Trapped In Song Structure


I speak in song titles
Melodies in my head
I speak in song lyrics
And it's so sad
Verse chorus, verse chorus
I make word pictures
I'm a prisoner
Trapped In Song Structure

I can't make conversation
Unless I'm at karaoke
Or at a writers night
People think I'm dopey
It's AABA
B being a bridge
I'm in a straitjacket
Trapped In Song Structure

Thought I'd write some songs
Probably get rich
I'm poor as Job's turkey
Ain't life a bitch!

I think about music
Every day and night
Even dream about it
Though my songs are trite
Verse chorus, verse chorus
I make word pictures
I'm a prisoner
