Steemit Open Mic week 100 - Original Song - 'Chapters Just Begun' by Darren Claxton -

in #openmic3 years ago

Welcome to my Open Mic entry for week 100!




Lyrics


A long long time ago
my boiling blood would flow
straight into my head

It caused me oh such shame
and other peoples pain
my constant feelings strained*

I've flaws that you can see
and others I can feel
but most of them are gone
most of all I'm me
the only one I'll be
refreshing constantly

--

Just take me by the sea
let me tell you stories
of how I used to be
lead me down the road
of tales left untold
and chapters just begun
chapters just begun


years and years rolled by
I sat and wondered why
where it all went wrong
the patience that I found
had pinned me to the ground
my tempers almost gone


Just take me by the sea
let me tell you stories
of how I used to be
lead me down the road
of tales left untold
and chapters just begun
chapters just begun


A long long time ago
my boiling blood would flow
straight into my head
It caused me oh such shame
and other peoples pain
my constant feelings strained


I've flaws that you can see
and others I can feel
but most of them are gone
most of all I'm me
the only one I'll be
refreshing constantly

Chapters Just Begun

Sounds like a fine idea to me!!

Awww Darren I have loved this song since the first time I ever heard of it. It's one of my favorites of yours and seeing it live like this is just perfect with the lights behind you and the climbing ivy. Beautiful beautiful, sigh.

Well I see that I already commented. I thought I hadn't done so. Turns out for once I had my crap together. Anyway, 2 comments are still not enough to say how pretty this is.

You're a superstar hun!
Love ya right back!

Oh the new seating area in our cottage garden!
Gorgeous blue fairy lights and the grapevine make for a lovely backdrop.
I really need an audio interface and snazzy new Blue Yeti mic just like @zipporah uses!
Not there yet though so the mobile phone vids will have to do for now!
Thanks again for being amazing Serena!
See you/Hear you Friday on the show!
