“Kiss the bride”/original song by me

dance-durba
Durban Lady Smith Mambazo Concert

My guitar teacher/neighbor challenged me to try song writing as he plays more of his original songs than covers. The catch in songwriting as he told me is that you don’t sit down and say you’re going to write a song. It just comes to you, when you least expect, so aways have a paper or phone at your ready. Another tip he told me is that songs that open with the words me, you, or I are more likely to become hits as the audience can relate to them. With that said, here’s my first song inspired by love and weddings. 🙂 ❤

opening verse:

You told me I was the one you were looking searching yearning for

but life didn’t turn out that way

I am still waiting on that day

White gown walking down that aisle

Veil, shielded eyes Wide spread smile

 

chorus:

Kiss the bride

Kiss the bride

It’s gonna be a long ride

 

middle verse:

Till death do us part

One love, two hearts

Slip on the wedding band

On my left hand

 

chorus:

Kiss the bride

Kiss the bride

It’s gonna be a long ride

 

closing verse:

I am yours

And you are mine

Two souls, one love

To love and to hold

In sickness and in health

In heaven and in hell

 

chorus:

Kiss the bride

Kiss the bride

It’s gonna be a long ride
