I wanna write a song, but I have no inspiration. I've never been in love, never broke up, and all of that love song stuff. I don't want to complain, but I need help. Does anyone have a topic that they think I could write a song about? You don't have to answer if you don't want to.

Also, I wrote a song and my sister thinks I squeezed too much into one song. I was thinking about splitting it into two songs. What do you think?

You can’t succeed if you don’t try

I was pretty young. Almost 11 years. I wanted to sing and loved to do it too.
Some people doubted me, they said I sounded terrible.
And they didn’t know that when they did I ran in my room and cried.
I always thought but never had the nerve to say:
You can’t succeed unless you try. How do you think humans learned how to fly? Please be supportive and pretty please let my dream take flight! Turn off the lights! Turn them back on! Can’t you see that Edison succeeded in making sure those light bulbs light up?
I am left, guitar on my lap. I don’t even know how to play. I’m just trying to make a song so people would know what I think. I look at my paper, it’s white as snow. Writers block. I just have nowhere in my mind to go.
You can’t succeed unless you try. How do you think humans learned how to survive?
Dream Shuttle taking off in 5-4-3-2-Never if I don’t try.
Turn off the lights! Turn them back on! Can’t you see that Edison succeeded in making sure those light bulbs light up?

You’ve gotta try to succeed……….
Kind of like planting the seed of dreams……….
And if…… you’re lucky…….. that seed…….will……...grow…..a tree.
You can’t succeed unless you try. You can’t make it, I can’t make it unless we try! Please be supportive and pretty please let my dream survive!
Pretty please let my dream survive.
How do you think humans learned to fly?
You can’t succeed unless you try.
So don’t be afraid to go out there and learn to fly!
To learn……How to………..Survive………

P.S. I like the chorus, I'm going to remember that.

I was thinking about doing one song called

Turn off The Lights:

Turn off the lights

When I was a little girl, I had a dream. I dreamed I was onstage with a microphone in my hand, crowd at my feet. I was singing a song with a catchy beat. Then I woke, offstage, no crowd, at my feet. I noticed it was just a dream. Ever since I had that dream, I’ve wanted to make it come true. I wanted to be onstage. I wanted a live audience cheering me on as I sing my song.

Here's my song for my EMPATH: The Luckiest Smurf fanfiction novel, "Of All The People".

You've got the good times, you've got the sunshine;
I've got the bad times and rain.
You've got the memories of how my life should be;
Misery's what rules my days.
I've got the blues before I even knew
The blues I had yet to see.
Of all the people living in this world,
Why does it have to be me?
Of all the people living in this world,
Why does it have to be me?


So many years ago, I would have told them so
If I was given the choice
Of which roads in life to take, which mistakes to make,
But I wasn't given that voice.
Now I'm locked in this prison that you call my past
From which I will never be freed.
Of all the people living in this world,
Why does it have to be me?
Of all the people living in this world,
Why does it have to be me?


They say that life isn't fair,
But all I can say to that is I don't care.
It's so easy when you took from me
Those things I can't get back from you in time.
They say that time heals all wounds;
I'm still licking those that came from you,
And if there is any justice left in this world,
You'd better not leave me from your mind.


Someday I will forgive, simply live and let live;
For now I will never let go
Of how much I'm hurt inside from your foolish pride
And things I should never have known.
I don't know how I'll live on, knowing how much is gone,
The cost of my empathy.
Of all the people living in this world,
Why does it have to be me?
Of all the people living in this world,
Why does it have to be me?
Of all the people living in this world,
Why does it have to be?
Why should it have to be?
Why does it have to be me?

It's not supposed to be a happy song. It's supposed to be a song where Empath laments the unfairness of his life compared to his fellow Smurfs. That song, along with the novel, was created as an expression for how I felt when I had to live apart from my family in residential schools.

It's not the best, I have allergies and that might have effected my voice.
