Melancholy Sounds


Down in the dumps, all feeling life's bumps, and its pot holes,

The road is long and rough my friend, us to reach our goals.

As we each move with it in time, the day sure rocks and it rolls.

Those challenges faced, so many, but it helps make our souls.


Refrain:

Feeling melancholy, got to play that feeling down,

Low Melody sound, melancholy blues in a song.

Got to strum with the beat, all the night time long.

ringing kinda Blues, that Blues, melancholy song.


I'm just trying to turn the page right now on a life full of rage,

It's so hard to do, when you're unsure, you don't have a clue.

Shake that war dance, then give you're life a new chance,

Despite that old losing poker hand, the one you once drew.


Refrain:

Feeling melancholy, got to play that feeling down,

Low melody sound, Melancholy blues in a song.

Got to strum with the beat, all the night time long.

Ringing kinda Blues. that Blues, melancholy song.


Hearing that old Blues guitar, just a ringing on down in my mind,

I can't wait till to tomorrow, cause it's gonna be a happy day kind.

That house of ill repute, don't need it no more, just give it the boot,

Take a lesson from that old Barn owl, to just try giving life a hoot.


Refrain:

Feeling melancholy, got to play that feeling down,

Low melody sound, Melancholy Blues in a song,

Got to strum with the beat, all the night time long.

Ringing kinda Blues. that Blues, melancholy song.

I heard a line in a movie once...the actor said "sweet melancholy" when describing the sound of a loon. That phrase has stuck with me, and I try to remember it whenever I'm melancholy. Life is sweet, and so is your poetry.

Whonu, this is great. I have a condition they like to call "Pollyanna Syndrome" is just can't get melancholy even when I should. But I like this to remind me.
