"Cries Too Far" #newsong #lyrics #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter #fate #never #measured

 I came up with this from a few songs I've already written but not professionally distributed, "Those Unseen," "Am I Awake," and a new one I had been working on. I had originally used a loop from Martin Minor at Minor2Go music for "Those Unseen." I like how it goes to this as well where I can just change the pitch for a chorus. He did the loop so beautifully. I have to look for it again tomorrow.

These flowers are withered but they've learned to grow hard.

Cries Too Far

Verse

I hear cries and screams

I said pray, hold on

beg or plead

look far outside comfort

Chorus

Cries too far

from the mind

their fate never

measured

in weight

Verse

We fight to keep this quiet

why do we do this

Our cries are never seen

Chorus

Cries too far

from the mind

their fate never

measured

in weight

Verse

Our body becomes a machine to reconstruct

Our mind never learned

to heal or cope

Bridge

Injuries become a measurement in weight

when the cries come up

to be determined its fate

It's too late

Chorus

Cries too far

from the mind

their fate never

measured

in weight

Cries too far from the mind

Verse

Those unseen are left behind

far from the mind

scars are seen

way to late

Our cries are too far from the mind

Their fate never measured

Chorus

Cries too far

from the mind

their fate never

measured

in weight

Cries too far from the mind

Cries too far

Lyrics and Recording to #newsong "Underwater" by #lorijeanfinnila #convulsions #underwater

 I was thought of as incomprehensible ever since a toddler because of my convulsions. I sit here today and cry from missing my mom and dad's funeral running from the hectic in my life.

Underwater at SoundCloud

Lyrics

Verse

I saw you looking at me

So peculiar

You thought I didn't see

My way to you

My way here

Chorus

Though I looked underwater

I could hear everything around me

I tried to tell you mom

So many times

Verse

Mother would sleep and not see

Father would panic frantically

When he'd see my face on the cover

Of a rock n roll album

Chorus

Though I looked underwater

I could hear everything around me

I tried to tell you mom

So many times

Verse

Dad would still buy the records

Mom would still play the music

As I plucked for you

Stared at you

Barely speaking

Bridge

I knew the chords I was playing

Even though they made no sense to you

I was riding down the hall to save alla

In my red fire engine

My rocking horse was the last to know

You'd tell me mom not to go so fast

I'd rock more and end up out the window

Chorus

Though I looked underwater

I could hear everything around me

I tried to tell you mom

So many times


Underwater

I looked underwater

To you so many times

I tried to tell you I was really here

I can still hear the doctors saying

I'm underwater

Underwater to you

Chorus

Though I looked underwater

I could hear everything around me

I tried to tell you mom

So many times
