    Default Johnb31 or John Baird

    Hello my fellow lyricists My name is John I'm 19 and I love to write poems and songs. I've written somewhere around 200 plus songs and poems (148 of which are posted on this website) some of which are about me and my struggles and triumphs in life and many about other people and humanity as a whole. I'm on a journey in life I'm searching for things that many say are impossible to find, but I am a very determined individual. I want to be a successful business man, famous writer, poet, lyricist and most of all I want my lyrics to be heard from my voice and others.I also enjoy writing short stories and am trying to write a novel but that hasn't really gone any where. I decided to post on this site sometime ago I think its been 1 and a half years but who knows anyway I just wanted an outlet for my lyrics a way to get them out to people instead of just hiding them under my bed. I encourage everyone on this site to keep posting and to keep this amazing website alive tell everyone you know to write and post lyrics, we are the people who can change the world one word at a time.

    Default Will You Remember

    This song means a lot to me it is one of the first songs that I ever wrote inspired by the 9/11 terrorist attacks amongst other things...

    Will you realize?
    Oh how you can't deny
    The pain inside hears you calling
    And recognize
    The world outside
    And the ones who die
    Cause your living
    Do you understand?
    That there is something more than this
    More than broken dreams
    And desperation
    And life of total aberration
    Will you find your self
    Amongst the ruble
    Or die
    And leave it all behind
    "Chorus"
    Will you remember?
    The world you cast behind
    Or will you forget
    And leave it all behind
    Will you remember?
    That day in your life
    When your world came crashing down
    And you were left unbound
    You were left unbound
    "
    When you hear the whispers
    Echo through your mind
    Remember that they
    Cannot dictate your life
    They are but anarchy
    In societies reich
    Fumbling their words
    To make you fight
    “Chorus”
    Will you remember?
    The world you cast behind
    Or will you forget
    And leave it all behind
    Will you remember?
    That day in your life
    When your world came crashing down
    And you were left unbound
    Will you remember?
    Will you remember?
    Will you find the truth inside?
    And realize that you’re alive
    'Bridge"
    Will you remember?
    Will you remember?
    Will you remember?
    The pain inside
    The way you felt that night
    There’s nowhere you can hide
    You’re here for life
    Will you remember?
    Will you remember?
    The world you cast behind
    Or will you forget
    And leave it all behind
    “Outro”
    Do you understand me?
    When I say the reasons why
    Why I'm here
    Here for life
    Your days are numbered
    So let them shine
    Allow the pain to subside
    And live for a better life
    A better life

    John......another amazing song lyric!I LOVE the chorus and the "Will You Remember" refrain.Very powerful!I could hear this both as an acoustic "Dylan like" piece,or an electric "Bryds like" piece.I know I'm going back a ways for reference......but what a great comparison it is!

    Thank you so much! I'm actually working towards rewriting it a little bit. I'm trying to make the second verse mirror the first and cut out some of the bridge to turn it into a more traditional folk song.
