My arms are tired, been carrying this guitar all day My feet are sore, been walking for quite a ways But I know what I have to do I have to sing my song for you I mostly know you from the Christmas and the Birthday cards Your perfect cursive wishing me well I understand it’s partly distance, partly circumstance That I don’t know all the stories that you have to tell My arms are tired, been carrying this guitar all day My feet are sore, been walking for quite a ways But I know what I have to do I have to sing my song for you You played your keyboard at the old folks homes and most of the audience was younger than you you always liked to say that music kept you young I hope I live to be at least 97 too My arms are tired, been carrying this guitar all day My feet are sore, been walking for quite a ways But I know what I have to do I have to sing my song for you The last time I saw you, I sang you my songs You closed your eyes and bobbed your head and even sang along You were a member of the Greatest Generation And even though you are gone I still look to you for inspiration My arms are tired, been carrying this guitar all day My feet are sore, been walking for quite a ways But I know what I have to do I have to sing my song for you

You Make Me 02:55
You make my skin itch I can’t stand your breath across my cheek You make me weak You make me weak You make me weak You make my days dark I’m not sure I’ll see the sun again too mean a friend too mean a friend too mean a friend You’re so cold and unfeeling Blind to all the pain you are dealing You make my feet numb Then you steal my sense of solid ground You knock me down You knock me down You knock me down You make my lips crack and you even make them bleed sometimes too cruel a crime too cruel a crime too cruel a crime I can’t escape you, you’re everywhere I turn But you don’t notice me or care You’re so cold and unfeeling Blind to all the pain you are dealing You make my skin itch I can’t stand your breath across my cheek You make my days dark I’m not sure I’ll see the sun again You make my feet numb Then you steal my sense of solid ground You make my lips crack and you even make them bleed sometimes I can’t escape you, you’re everywhere I turn But you don’t notice me or care You’re so cold and unfeeling Blind to all the pain you are dealing You make my skin itch You make my days dark You make my feet numb You make my lips crack You make my skin itch You make my days dark You make my feet numb You make my lips crack

about

Songs written for Spintunes 8.

From the SpinTunes FAQ:

What is SpinTunes?

SpinTunes is an online songwriting competition where people submit original songs they write to meet challenges handed out by a panel of judges.

Can I enter a previously written song?

No. Even if you have a previously written song, that happens to meant the given challenge, you should not enter it. Besides the prompt given for each round, part of the challenge IS the deadline. Doing everything from scratch in the same time frame as everyone else is the only fair way to enter. If your song is previously unreleased I would have no way of knowing if you cheated, so we rely on the honor system.

How do I win?

The competition has 4 rounds of challenges, and you are judged by a panel of judges each round. If you can make it to the last round without being eliminated, and then win that last round...you win.

What do I win?

Pride. We do this for the love of music...not for money or fancy trophies
