Wooo! I just got done posting all of my lyrics and poems worth sharing! I've never publicly shared any of these (with the exception of Meredith), and I'm glad I found this website that has a copyright built in, because that's part of the reason I never did before. This is also a step I'm taking in hopes of finding a musically compatible partner who would like to turn my lyrics into songs with me. I don't know how to write accompanying music to a melody, and I don't know how to play any musical instruments, really. I played flute in school for four years, so I can read music (slowly), and I have a piano and a keyboard in hopes of learning how to play. If one of my lyrics catch your attention, feel free to message me, and maybe we can work something out! I'd like to do this with someone who lives fairly near to me (Greencastle, Indiana), but I'm up for anything, really. My songs are either folk-type or rock-type, but I'm pretty open. I am influenced by Simon and Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, Melanie, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, Rush, Jethro Tull, Evanescense, Pearl Jam, Staind, Disturbed, The Cranberries, Sixpence None the Richer, Linkin Park, Chevelle, Tool, Perfect Circle...this list has gotten very long. Anything, pretty much, lol.
