      1. Thanks Robert – I’m doing the Pat Pattison course for the nth time so am active and writing. I wish you all good fortune with the challenge. I’m also a folk song writer and a leopard whose probably not gonna change those spots too much at this stage.

    Now for Lilies Questionaire:

    2 Hardest part or challenge is forcing the creativity to rise above within a time limit and feeling (unskilled) to present a professional product. It would be interesting to have this challenge done using only acoustics such as one guitar, (maybe a bass guitar as well), or a piano, or accapella. I wonder how that would sound. More songwriters would be on an even ground with none of our fluff…hee hee.

    3 I enjoyed co-writing since I’ve never done that, but also that I HAD to write and create. The timeline was difficult with long distant co-writing.

    4.I didn’t feel so alone knowing that all of us were in it as a group of songwriter’s across canada. I felt the camaraderie.

    5. I would do this again and would feel better prepared knowing how this works.

    YOU ARE THE ONE FOR ME

    V-1
    YOU KNOW ME FROM THE INSIDE OUT,
    I DON’T NEED WORDS TO KNOW IT’S TRUE
    I’M RUNNING MY FINGERS THROUGH YOUR HAIR
    A SIMPLE GESTURE OF MY LOVE FOR YOU
    REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME I SAW YOU IN A CROWD OF 10,000
    MY HEART DROPPED ONTO THE FLOOR
    AND WHEN TWO SOULS MEET WITH A LOVE LIKE OURS
    HEAVEN OPENS UP THE DOORS

    CHORUS:

    YOU ARE THE ONE FOR ME, AND I WAS MADE FOR YOU
    GUIDED BY ANGELS, YOU FOUND MY SOUL
    YES YOU ARE THE ONE FOR ME, AND I WAS MADE FOR YOU
    GUIDED BY ANGELS I FOUND MY WAY HOME……..

    V-2
    I FEEL MY HEART POUNDING NEXT TO YOU,
    IT’S THE DRUM BEAT OF OUR LIFE IN PERFECT TIME
    ITS THESE MOMENTS THAT TAKE MY BREATH AWAY,
    I WANT THESE MEMORIES TO BURN DEEP IN MY MIND
    CAUSE I’VE BEEN CHASED BY THE GHOSTS OF MY PAST FOR FAR TOO LONG
    BUT WHEN I MET YOU, IT WAS THEN THAT I KNEW I HAD A PLACE WHERE I BELONGED

    CHORUS

    YOU ARE THE ONE FOR ME, AND I WAS MADE FOR YOU
    GUIDED BY ANGELS, YOU FOUND MY SOUL
    YES YOU ARE THE ONE FOR ME, AND I WAS MADE FOR YOU
    GUIDED BY ANGELS I FOUND MY HOME……..

    BRIDGE

    DON’T LET THE WORLD TAKE YOU AWAY
    FROM WHAT YOU KNOW IS TRUE
    NO MATTER WHERE YOU GO I ‘LL BE RIGHT HERE
    IF YOU FIND THE ROAD YOU WALK UPON
    GETS HARDER AND YOU FALL
    I’LL JUST PICK YOU UP AND WHISPER IN YOUR EAR

    CHORUS

    (written March 2015, recorded and performed by Melanie Magnifico)
