Lady Godiva
Ok, while I try to either get some rough sound sketches sounding decent or get up the nerve to post the ones I have with their crappy sound, I'll post some of my lyrics.

This is probably the most conventional song I have written.  It's even in 4/4, which I only use as a last resort.  I have the vocal melody and drum pattern sketched out for it with a vague intuition of chord sequences, but nothing else.

LADY GODIVA
Last night I dreamed of Lady Godiva
sitting on that high horse of hers.
She wasn't very pretty, so it's just as well
I only saw her from the back.

Last night I dreamed of Lady Godiva --
a pointless waste of good sleeping time.
She wasn't very pretty, so it's just as well
the dream didn't last for very long.

(chorus)
O -- oh, Lady Godiva,
O -- oh, Lady Godiva.
Such a waste of my time.

If I must dream of Lady Godiva
let it be you, dear, up on that horse.
Come down from the saddle, come back home with me
and I'll do whatever you want.

(sung to chorus chords, slightly different)
I've got a blanket to wrap around your skin.
Nothing's important until we see
eye to eye
again.

These are great. They're simple and poetic and to the point. Really good work, I'd love to hear it when it's all done. Keep it up.
