A Song I wrote,.."Racing The Storm Clouds."

Updated on December 28, 2019

I think it is important to write something each day. Today, after work I sat down at my piano and before too long came up with a wonderful, foot-tapping melody to lyrics I wrote some time back when I went to University. And so, here are the words to the melody I wrote today... 

Racing The Storm Clouds, by Maggie-May

VERSE:  It's one of those things

              You can't quite explain

               Try to pin me down

               Well, I won't stick around

               I'm moving on

               It won't take me long

HOOK:  I'm going to race this storm cloud

CHORUS:  I'm a wild child baby

                 A grown woman too

                 With a wild soul baby

                 No man can hold

                 I'm a wild child baby

                 I'll take your heart away

                 Racing the storm clouds

VERSE:  I'm no longer willing

              To stay and work things out

              I've endured enough pain

              It's time I make a change

              Don't be hanging on

              I'm already gone

HOOK:  I'm gonna race this storm cloud


BRIDGE:  If you really love me

               Then, honey it's time

               Time to set me free

               It's time to let me go


VERSE:  I really like

              The fact that I'm free

              No-one can hurt me

              It's the way it has to be

             Nothing you can do

             Nothing you can say

HOOK:  I'm already racing the storm clouds..........

      b a t, thanks for the compliment. And yeah, Im not much for the bitter or bragging acts out there, I like more thought provoking lyrics or one's that show class by merely expressing individuality. Any failed relationship, I believe, has a positive outcome--sure, at the time, it is usually rather difficult to see it that way, but in time most of those failed relationships were ones that "postponed being alone," a verse in another one of my songs. Racing the Storm Clouds, means just that and the melody I've come up with would most definitely have a Terry Clark feel to it, even the Dixie Chicks, either one would actually make it a hit. :) In terms of answering your question, the first ones to pop in my mind are Shanai Twain, the Dixie Chicks, and Sheryl Crow. I only like a few of their songs not all. And, let's see, love Bonnie Rhait's(Spelling?)music, Billy Holiday, and a few others, but all in all, it's their musical styles and melodies--that extra little musical lick/twist that I mostly like about any artist's music.

      Love the lyrics Maggie May, they evoke power and inner strnegth not without a touch of 'in ya face'. I was wondering who are your favorite fameale artists?

      Okay, Mr. Goose-bumps! James Taylor is one of my favs! Carol King wrote, 'You've got a friend/All you have to do is call,' she sold it to James Taylor, and I've had people tell me that some of the songs I've written remind them of her song that James Taylor plays. And, yep you've nailed it!!! Too funny :) And, thank-you so much for the wonderful compliment, being compared to my all-time favorite famous entertainer!!!

      Sounds somewhat like a defiant, steam roller, bluesy James Taylor tune... I like it...
