I’m Invisible! (Song Lyric)

How To Write a Song

I can’t really tell you how to write a song! But I can tell you some of the things I do that end up being one!

Everybody has different ways. I usually write poems. These days I will already know what kind of attack, jazzy, hard, folk, the song should have when I’m working on the words, and I incorporate a lot of repetition and rhythm, which is much more song-like than poem-like, although a poem can easily get a melody, and sometimes that works great! There’s really no other difference between a song lyric and poem than the intentional things done to a lyric to make the song better; you’ll see many of these treatments in the lyric below, and how it starts to “sing itself.”

The lyric below is a great example of aggressive implied rhythm. Not simple, but it gets more obvious as you go.

This is new; I wrote it yesterday in about an hour. It started with just one phrase, “You’ll never know me!” It has, in my mind, a hard beat and a hard, gritty guitar, like Maroon 5. If you’d like to share it or use it yourself (if you think you are worthy) just touch base with me. If you would like me to write a song for your band, I can do it; let me know!

share the moon CDIf you are Maroon 5, just go ahead and make a hit out of it; I’ll catch up with you when I hear it on the radio!

At the bottom of each page of this site is a free song, “Friends,” a sample from my album “Share The Moon,” featuring eleven originals I took from lyrics to production.

Peace and Rock On Friends!

I’m Invisible!

I didn’t mean to mis – understand you my dear
I thought the best thing to do would be for me to disappear
Hold my breath and close my eyes and vanish in the air
So I closed my door and locked it just to make things clear

Mentally I’m just a little curious of you
Physically, I – would not know what to do
Probably I’d get in trouble and maybe you would too
But I learned from the cat – how to split in a flash!

It’s not – a – question of who!
I’m a no-bo-dy who – don’t know what to do!
I’m not exactly sure and I don’t wanna be a fool
(But I think) I can be invisible when I’m looking right at you!

You’ll never know me! You’ll never know me!
Just another thing that isn’t in your view
There isn’t anything, that you can say or do
You’ll never know me and I’m gonna fly away!

You’ll never know me! You’ll never know me!
You’ll never know me! Look at me, show me!
You’ll never know me ‘cause I’m invisible!
You’ll never know me and I’m gonna fly away!

(Bridge:)

It’s a blast knowing all the things I know!
You wanna get to know my head, babe!
It’s a blast watchin’ you puttin’ on a show!
You wanna get to know my head! Oh!

I didn’t mean to mis-understand you my dear
But I often feel like I’m invisible
I didn’t mean to completely disappear
A disappearing popsicle would even make me quizzical

You’ll never know me! You’ll never know me!
You’ll never know me! Look at me, show me!
You’ll never know me ‘cause I’m invisible!
You’ll never know me and I’m gonna fly away!

You’re gonna lose me; gonna gonna lose me!
Poker face and all I think I’m already half gone!
It’s been a pleasure but my years on earth are limited
I’ll share my heartbeat but it might be in a song!

You’ll never know me! You’ll never know me!
You’ll never know me! You think you’re gonna snow me!
You’ll never know when I come creepin’ up on you!
You’ll never know, ‘cause I’m invisible!

– a spot for an awesome solo –

It’s not – a – question of who!
You’ll never know me! Look at me, show me!
You’ll never know when I come creepin’ up on you!
You’ll never know, ‘cause I’m invisible!

– another spot for another solo here –

You’ll never know me; you’ll never show me
You’ve got an owl in your bedroom window now
… when … I come cree-pin’ up on you …
You’ll never know me and I’m gonna fly away!

You’ll never know me and I’m gonna fly away!
You’ll never know me and I’m gonna fly away!
