"They Lose Their Bodies" #newsong #podcast #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter #alternativelifestyle


I was at a place this week that I could surrender to my life's loss and feel justified, yet when I started comfortably setting into it, it didn't feel right. Not only did I not want to be in that place, but I couldn't stop thinking about the ones still out there in the cold suffering physically.

Lyrics:

Verse 

Whether in trash

 or back of a truck 

or a father's arms 

where we know they shouldn't be 

We lose our minds 

they lose their bodies 


Chorus 

We have our dreams 

But many have lost 

More than their minds 

They lose their bodies 


Verse 

Why waste so much time 

Worrying about the past 

When there are so many 

That feel the cold still 

We need to think about the present 

Their troubles are still here 

They are still real 

How many don't have food 

a warm bed to sleep in 


Chorus 

We have our dreams 

But many have lost 

More than their minds 

They lose their bodies 

Everyday 


Verse 

If I can somehow 

Share my life 

Pass my feelings 

Of empathy upon you 

Drawn from my own past

 Of hurt and loss

 I would have accomplished 

All that I have 

To give in this moment 

For my life forever 


Chorus 

We have our dreams 

But many have lost 

More than their minds 

They lose their bodies 

Everyday 

As we watch them slip away....

Never thought of you

Never thought of you

Lyrics:

"Falling Into You"


Verse

I need you

So much every day

You know just 

Where to reach me

Only you understand how I need you


Chorus

I'm falling

Helpless to this abyss

Going underwater

Surrendering to this

Falling into you


Verse

You say we're close

I question to this

Just because I'm taken so far

Does not mean were cemented to this


Chorus


Verse

Please don't be turned off

By my fright after 

That I feel so soon

I feel the fear in my face


Chorus


Verse

I try to imagine

You're not like this

I get so serious

Thinking this is love

Perhaps it is

Am I going too far with this

Bridge

I never felt this before

You controlling my body

One minute I'm there

Next minute I blackout into you


Chorus

Song "A Dream" #unplugged #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter #alternativelifestyle #podcast #dreams

 I think we have to be careful of our dreams. They can sometimes lead us away from where we need to be.

Lyrics:

Versed

I thought to be a princess

Live in a fine white house

Wear cashmere

Have my own island

Chorus

I thought I had a dream

But I found I didn't know 

What one was

Until I had you

When I had already lost one

Verse

All the silver

Gold and sparkle became a blur

The lights, shine, camera, fashion

Became last in my mind

I couldn't find any dreams any more

All I could think was love

That was the most important

Chorus

Verse

The warmth

The touch

The closeness

Was all that I dreamed of now

Bridge

It's a feeling I want 

To feel belonging 

Someplace of meaning

Importance, existence

No dreams

on my mind now

I don't know what one is

I thought I knew a dream

Until I lost one

Chorus

I thought I had a dream

But I found I didn't know 

What one was

No dreams now

Repeat

Oooo

A dream

A dream

Oooo

Oooo

Draft of song "Feels Like Death"


Lyrics:

Verse

You shed a tear

I stare at you

Hopelessness in my face

You want to understand


The pain is too deep

To communicate

All hope is lost

At these times….


Chorus

Please don’t let me

Fall in these trenches

Where I can never come out again

To see this happiness we once had


Verse

You want to talk

My fear is of it

Happening again

You don’t understand


My nightmares are of you

At this exact place where you are

With me, I can’t reach you

I keep falling, down, down, down, down


Chorus

Please don’t let me

Fall in these trenches

Where I can never come out again

To see this happiness we once had


Verse

My fear can’t get much worse

I feel it’s over

Worse not just for you and me

But me all alone in this…..


I feel the most alone

Than I’ve ever felt

Why fall in love

Just to end up like this

I’m falling down, down, down again

This lonely world is spinning

Around me


Chorus

Please don’t let me

Fall in these trenches

Where I can never come out again

To see this happiness we once had


Verse

You say you’re sorry

You want to reach me

But I don’t know how to tell

You how I feel

So you will understand

And this can be over

Never to happen again


This is why I’m afraid of love

I can’t go through this again

This sadness, loneliness

That feels like death


Chorus

Please don’t let me

Fall in these trenches

Where I can never come out again

To see this happiness we once had


That feels like death

Feels like death

Feels like death

Feels like death

ooooooo

"Too Much Time" #frayed #newsong #recording #lorijeanfinnila

 I wrote this at the times we want to be able to think but instead feel our head is banging against the wall. I wrote the song anyway.

"Too Much Time" draft


Lyrics:

Verse

Always thinking

Always moving

Trying to create

While running away


Chorus

Too much time sometimes

Not enough at times

Not always the special place

Needed to think

To help bring me to create


Verse

Sometimes I have the thought

The idea I need to create

Don't have the warm spot

To think to put it into words

Too much noise, shouting, conflict

To get anything done


Chorus


Verse

I'm always shuffling left and right

It seems

Can't seem to find the right direction

right words, even the emotion gets scrambled 


Bridge

I think I've found the moment 

One more time

The perfect place where I lose my mind

Banging on the walls

Imaginating all

Lost in the darkest and lightest


Why do I have to feel like this

So many times

When the time should be right

When something comes to my mind

Always dark, scary moments come to light before my eyes

Right when I don't need it most


Chorus

Too much time sometimes

Not enough at times

Not always the special place

Needed to think

To help bring me to create


Too much time

Not enough time

Oooooooo

Oooooo

Oooooo

ooooooooo
