If life were a sound...what would it be?
I tend to think about stuff like this and put my thoughts into lyrics. I can't help it and this is how they come out. If your life were a sound, what would it sound like?

If life were a sound, what would it be?

 

Would it be the innocent laughter of a baby?

Would it sound like birds chirping or

Glass breaking or

Tires screeching or

The high-pitched cackle of the insane?

 

Would it be like a symphony?

Like an African drum beat?

Would it be like a symphony?

Like an African drum beat?

 

Would it be the brook laughing over the rocks?

Would it be the crook ord’ring scotch on the rocks?

Would it be the silent smile of the Southern Belle?

Would it be the reconcile of the Rouge Motel?

 

Could people see the sound

As it floated around?

If life were a sound, what would it be?

 

If life were a sound, what would it be?

 

Would it be the joyful noise round the Christmas tree?

Would it sound like pencils scratching or

Kittens purring or

Writers writing or

The bustle of a thousand at the market?

 

Would it be like a symphony?

Like an African drum beat?

Would it be like a symphony?

Like an African drum beat?

 

Would it be a tsunami and the screams?

Would it be Broadway hopes and dreams?

Would it be the barking of dogs?

Would it be the floating of logs

Down the stream?

 

Could people see the sound

As it floated around?

If life were a sound, what would it be?
