Surfer Girl

Here’s the song I wrote in Paul Riesler‘s Song School class. It was based on the story of another student. We all traded stories and then wrote songs about them. I wanted to try something new and break out of my 12 bar box. Please let me know what you think.

Here’s the lyrics: 

Surfer Girl
Stay away
Please stay away,
Poison love
kills more each day.
The sea inside
red with pain,
bites her skin,
cuts
through
again.
Stay away.
Please stay away.
Needs your love,
she pulls away.
Dressed in black,
black fingernails,
smeared black lips,
down
she
slips.
Catch the wave
that comes to save.
Learn to ride
that place inside.
Hold the gold,
make it stay.
The surfer Girl
is born today.
On her board
she caught her wave,
matters not
what the ocean gave.
She can fly,
turn herself around,
land like a kiss,
feet
on
ground.
Blackened shell
shed that night,
colors bleed
from broken light,
digs her hand
into the sand,
her aqua eyes,
dance
with
light.
Catch the wave
that comes to save.
Learn to ride
that place inside.
Hold the gold,
make it stay.
The surfer Girl
is born today.
