Songwriting Competition Entry

Here's my entry for the songwriting competition! All three of my entries are included in separate chapters of this book. Each chapter consists of the lyrics (obviously) followed by a recorded version of the song so you can hear what it sounds like. My songs are all based on a different story or character, be it one of my own stories from right here on Movellas, one of my sister's, or one I've read elsewhere. That's because my own life so far hasn't exactly been rich in creative inspiration. Good luck to everyone entering!

Author's note

Okay, so I messed up in my blurb! Two of the three songs actually have properly produced electronica/dubstep versions (which I personally prefer- I've never been a big fan of the little-girl-with-a-guitar thing!) but I've also included a raw acoustic recording of each one just in case a version that's 100% me fits the brief better. I didn't actually do the production on the electronica versions myself- all credit goes to the awesome Tom Savage. Okay, rant over. Hope you enjoy!

1. Entry 1: Superhuman

This one is based on my own character, Valerie/Ember from Welcome To Emberly. More generally, though, I guess it's a song about breaking away from negative influences and living life your own way.

I know exactly what you’re gonna say

You’ve said it over again

You’re gonna tell me every little thing’s okay

You’d better run away from me, cause if you stay

I’ll only hurt you again

Just think about what happened last time somebody got in my way

 

And I’m never going back again

Let go of everything, I don’t care about it anymore

I’ll never be the same

But I don’t really care, ‘cause I never felt like this before

 

Should have never tried to live my life my way

Now they’re coming for me

But I got sick of living that way anyway

Yeah, I wanna be free

‘Cause I don’t wanna be like the others

I couldn’t if I tried

Don’t wanna keep my feet on the ground

I wanna learn to fly

 

And I’m never going back again

Let go of everything, I don’t care about it anymore

I’ll never be the same

But I don’t really care, ‘cause I never felt like this before

I’m superhuman

I’m getting stronger by the minute, there’s no limit to what I can do

They say I’m broken

But if they try to hunt me down, I’ll break them too

I messed up

I’m not your friend anymore

So turn back

Don’t wanna hurt you no more

I messed up

I’m not your friend anymore

So turn back

Don’t wanna hurt you no more

 

-Chorus-

 

They’ll never break me down

I know I’m broken

But if you try to hunt me down

I will break you too
