Welcome

It is lovely that you dropped in. This is a brand-new blog that will talk about anything that has to do with lyric writing. I will share my thoughts about my attempts, successes and failures and share lyrics that I love from singers and performers around the world.

On this page, if you look for where I tell you about my aim with this blog, I am also sharing a song with you that is very close to my heart. It is called “Before” and as a welcome gift I want to share my lyrics to that song with you too.

Last summer I started to work with people suffering from dementia. They really got under my skin and more than anything I would have wanted to ask them about who they were befor their illness took over. Sadly they couldn’t give an answer to that question anymore, but I wrote these lyrics about my thoughts.

Simon Finn www.simonfinnsongwriter.com has written the beautiful music.

 

Befor

I wish I would have known you

before the fog rolled in.

A time when you could tell me

who you had really been.

 

Before your gaze grew weary,

and nothing more seemed clear.

When you felt strong and certain,

and not so full of fear.

 

Chorus

I wonder who you were before?

Before you changed inside,

and all you knew was pushed aside.

I wonder who you were before?

Before what’s you just died.

Before your mind went out to hide.

I wonder who you were before?

 

At times, the curtains open

to let the sunshine in.

A sudden burst of summer

looks certain to begin.

 

Your eyes are clear and happy,

right now, you know your name,

but then the light starts fading

and all is just the same.

 

Chorus

I wonder who you were before?

Before you changed inside,

and all you knew was pushed aside.

I wonder who you were before?

Before what’s you just died.

Before your mind went out to hide.

I wonder who you were before?
