Hypnagogia - Schrijfproject

Hallo dames,

Sommige hebben misschien vroeger wel eens wat van mijn schrijfsels gelezen, die ik onder andere onder de namen ‘xPeet’ ‘Kreukelwoord’ ‘Shinko’ & ‘TheDoors’ heb geplaatst. Nu ben ik inmiddels 21 en schrijf ik nooit meer. Ik wil proberen hier iets aan de veranderen.

Om te schrijven heb ik inspiratie nodig - Dat zijn jullie. Mijn idee is om songteksten te gebruiken als inspiratie. Een zinnetje of een couplet die me aanspreekt, vertalen in een eigen short story. Graag hoor ik van jullie mooie STUKJES songtekst!

Up

Genre?

  • There’s a million reasons why I should give you up. But the heart wants what it wants.

  • The bed’s getting cold and you’re not here.The future that we hold is so unclear. But I’m not alive until you call.

  • We found wonderland. You and I got lost in it. And we pretended it could last forever.

  • Say you’ll remember me. Standing in a nice dress, staring at the sunset, babe. Red lips and rosy cheeks. Say you’ll see me again even if it’s just in your wildest dreams.

  • Rain came pouring down when I was drowning. That’s when I could finally breathe. And that morning, gone was any trace of you, I think I am finally clean.

  • You got that James Dean day dream look in your eye. And I got that red lip classic thing that you like. And when we go crashing down, we come back every time… Cause we never go out of style.

  • Look at that face, you look like my next mistake. Love’s a game, wanna play?

  • Cause we’re young and we’re reckless. We’ll take this way too far . It’ll leave you breathless. Or with a nasty scar…’

  • But you’ll come back each time you leave. Cause darling I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream.

  • So it’s gonna be forever. Or it’s gonna go down in flames. You can tell me when it’s over. If the high was worth the pain.

(Daughter - Youth)

And if you’re still breathing, you’re the lucky ones
'cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs
Setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting names of the lovers that went wrong
The lovers that went wrong

And if you’re still bleeding, you’re the lucky ones
'cause most of our feelings they are dead and they are gone
We’re setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting pictures from a flood that wrecked our homes
It was a flood that wrecked this home

And if you’re in love, then you are the lucky one
'cause most of us are bitter over someone
Setting fire to our insides for fun
To distract our hearts from ever missing them,
But I’m forever missing him


(Laura Jansen - Pretty Me)

Five years old, in my pink tutu
I was spinning, spinning, and no one ever knew

That these bruises hold a dirty clue
I was spinning, spinning, but no one ever knew

Oh-oh pretty, pretty me
I am the prettiest girl you ever did see
Oh-oh pretty, pretty me
I am the prettiest girl you ever did see

Seventh grade, my boyfriend made
A joke about the way I looked, in the pool

So I never ate, man I looked great
But I was spinning, spinning, but no one ever knew

[refrein]

Twenty-eight years old, in my wedding dress I’m told
I am the prettiest girl he ever did see

But six months on, and that dress is gone
I guess the aisle was too long for me

Two bags, a ticket, a couch in L.A.
Nothing left to prove, finally something to say
I am wise enough now, smart enough now
I own my own mistakes

But… I’ve got no job
I’ve got no car
No driver’s licence
No cash
No savings
No health care
No furniture
No place to live
No IRA, no retirement scheme
No winter camp, no christmas tree
No family, near me
No money for morning coffee
And no way to pay off my debts

But I am dreaming
[refrein]


(Lily & Madeleine - Paradise)

Run away with me tonight
Let the moon bathe us in its light
Come on I’ll take you to paradise


(Laura Marling - Alas I cannot swim)

There’s a house across the river
But alas I cannot swim
And a garden of such beauty
That the flowers seem to grin

There’s a house across the river
But alas I cannot swim
I’ll live my life regretting
That I never jumped in

There’s a boy across the river
With short black curly hair
He wants to be my lover
And I want to be his peer

There’s a boy across the river
But alas I cannot swim
And I never will get
To put my arms around him

There’s a life across the river
That was meant for me
Instead I live my life
In constant misery

There’s a life across the river
But I do not see
Why I should please those
Who wil never be pleased

enkele favorieten (: hoop dat je er wat aan hebt!

Ik schrijf heeeel veel onder inspiratie van liedjes en foto’s. Kun je ook vinden op mijn wordpress en tumblr (staan in mijn onderschrift)

De laatste van Selena Gomez is qua tekst ook heerlijk voor inspiratie. En Edge of Desire van John Mayer maakt echt altijd wat in me los. Daughter - Youth idd ook, die is al genoemd haha :slightly_smiling_face:
