VEIL OF NIGHT LYRICS

Who knows what happens in the veil of night?

Who knows what happens when you turn out the light?

Only so many hours for the demons to play

‘til the sun comes up tomorrow

The moon bows down to the devil king

The stars come out while the demon sings  

Only so many times

can you hide in the dark

Til the reaper comes to claim you

-

INSTRUMENTAL

-

Shadow steals life from the day

Shows no mercy when it claims its prey

reawakening voices hidden in the soul

That dare not speak in daylight

Who knows what happens in the veil of night?

Who knows what happens when you turn out the light?

Only so many hours for the demons to play

‘til the sun comes up tomorrow

-

INSTRUMENTAL

 -

The darkness shakes us like a tambourine

With a long black shadow from a foe unseen

And we cannot run we can only fear

where the spirits choose to lead us    

Who knows what happens in the veil of night?

Who knows what happens when you turn out the light?

Only so many hours for the demons to play

‘til the sun comes up tomorrow

ATTN SONG WRITERS: In regards to lyrics for this song, what we’re looking for is a “secret” that changes and gets twisted as the song goes on. So, try to come up with a sentence or two, then find clever ways to alter it as it passes from person to person.

Keep in mind how we communicate with modern technology. How often have you quickly written a text message and had autocorrect change a word that in turn completely changes it’s meaning?

Some other ideas you could incorporate:

• Typing in an instant messenger and you forget a letter in a word. Autocorrect could also apply here.

• Have you been on a Skype call and one person freezes mid-way through a word, and you misheard what was said?

• Talking over the phone and one person cuts out, or a word gets muffled.

The idea is to have each line sung by a different person, and the secret a little bit different with each new person. And that finally culminates in a completely different “secret” that may or may not make any sense whatsoever. In your lyrics, it would be very helpful to mention what method of communication is being used on each line.

Does the secret make it back to the original teller? How does he/she react to it?

Musically it might work best as an upbeat patter song. Try to make it more musical theater-esque in style. Don’t be afraid to mess with the song form. This kind of song doesn’t necessarily need to be Verse-Chorus-Verse-Chorus.

Have fun with it!

Thanks.

UNTIL THE BELL RINGS Lyrics (REQUEST)

CONTRIBUTE HERE

==

SONGWRITERS: Please refer to THIS MIX as a guide for the monologue’s timing.

==

This song “Until the Bell Rings” is moving along really nicely, and thanks to a new angle contributed by IAm1954, we now have more than just a love song coming from one person’s perspective; Now, it’s a duet, full of “will they / won’t they” drama.

The idea is: They both really like each other, and have gotten up the courage to tell the other at the same time. She sent him a note in class, and he sent her a text. Only, her phone is in her backpack and turned off, so she hasn’t gotten an alert…At the same time, her note to him is taking a L-O-N-G time to get across the room, passing from desk to desk (or something…To be determined). So, they’re BOTH waiting for an answer to the same question they’ve each asked each other, but neither is aware that the other has asked it…And that the answer is “Yes”. So they’re stuck waiting…

Debit72 gave us THIS GREAT BRIDGE that’s working nicely, and we’ve placed it into the song. And now, we need to finish the rest of the song’s lyrics.

==

There are TWO things we’re looking for:

1) Two lines for the guy’s part

We still have a couple of lines to fill for the guy’s part: Check out IAm1954’s mix HERE to hear how these parts work. The two lines we’re looking to fill still are in bold and italics in the lyrics below (although in the recording, you’ll note that he’s singing something different).

2) The Monologue

This section, coming out of the bridge, will be an instrumental bed (probably the verse chords), with a spoken vocal, rather than sung. The lines don’t have to fit tightly rhythmically, but they should have some sense of balance in their phrasing: “Line, pause…Line, pause…etc). It probably shouldn’t be too dense with words…More flowing and low-key.

Since the guy and girl are trading lines throughout the song, they should probably continue doing it in this monologue section, too. Maybe she takes the first half, then he takes the second? Or maybe they continue to trade line by line?

A couple of things to consider: Usually, these things are delivered by the vocalist with a pensive, kinda stoic and solemn mood; Definitely an area for a bit of (overripe?) drama here. This whole song is just a bit cheeky, so this section is a good place to highlight that…Without being outright silly, though. Also, the words should mostly echo the song’s established themes, instead of adding much in the way of new ideas or left turns. Maybe it recounts their past brushes with each other? Or further describing the things they like about each other? Or each one’s fear (or hope) that the other will say no (or yes)?

Have at it, and once we’ve got the song written, we’ll be moving on to making the RECording!

Before The Bell Rings Lyrics

Don’t let the teacher see
This note I’ve passed to you from me
But in this crumpled paper square
I tell you how I really care

(Her) How I like you so
(Him) Oh, how I like her so
(Her) Do you like me back, check yes or no
(Him) I sent you a text to let you know
(Her) Do you even that know I exist
And how i’m dreaming of your kiss?
And I’m tangled in my heartstrings
(Him) I’m staring at my phone screen
(Both Together?) Waiting here until the bell rings

(Her) I love the way you walk

(Him) (new backing vocal line)

(Her) And the way I laugh when you talk

(Him) (new backing vocal line)

(Her) I see how wonderful you really are
More than just a football star
And I’m tangled in my heartstrings
(Him) I’m staring at my phone screen
(Both Together?) Waiting here until the bell rings

Bridge

(Her) Freshman year I got a crush
(Him) Sophomore year you made me blush
(Her) Junior year I caught your glance 
(Both Together?) But senior year I’m gonna take a chance


16 BARS MONOLOGUE VERSE. CAN BE CUT IN HALF, DOWN TO 8 BARS(?)

(Her) How I like you so
Do you like me back, check yes or no, and I’m tangled in my heartstrings
(Him) I’m staring at my phone screen
(Both) Waiting here until the bell rings…
(Her) tangled in my heartstrings
(Him) I’m staring at my phone screen
(Both) Waiting here until the bell rings…
(Her) tangled in my heartstrings
(Him) I’m staring at my phone screen
(Both) Waiting here until the bell rings…
(Her) tangled in my heartstrings
(Him) I’m staring at my phone screen
(Both) Waiting here until the bell rings…
