    This is life

    A new song from a semi-musical I am writing using GPO. It is about a man in a bar musing life over drinks and thinking circular pointless thoughts. There is the sound of chair creaks in the back that kills me. I felt too lazy to stand and sing and so sat through the whole thing. Might redo...Feedback and comments appreciated:

    The young have dreams intact
    The old feel their done
    The rich go and buy the world
    The poor feel their pawns

    The black man has no faith in law
    The white man trusts it so
    These are the days
    When we ride high and low

    This is life and its found
    In each corner of this world
    As it spins round and round
    This is life and it flows
    Like a river that’s flowing where nobody knows

    These folks are the chosen one
    These folks are not
    This woman calls freedom home
    This one’s locked up

    This family grieves a loss of life
    This family gives birth
    This family’s star is bright
    This one has no worth

    Chorus…

    Sometimes I feel that this balance is fair
    It’s one of those grand scheming things
    Who are the haves and who are the nots
    Who are the caught in betweens

    I stare at my drink
    as I swirl round and round
    The bar girl calls my name
    A sweet distant sound

    These are the days when
    I think long and hard
    My refuge from sunlight
    In this dank smoky bar

    This is life…

    You have a nice voice for this kind of songs, maybe a little more "smoky" sound. I liked the song. When this is life, go and see the movie "Life stinks" with Mel Brooks!! I cannot comment on the musical aspect, but I think you must go on writing until it is finished.... [I am not familiar with musicals, that's why].

    Interesting piece of music and lyrics for your musical. Nice use of the GPO in the production.

    very effective.
