My Tune

“My Tune” is a song written by me (Martin Burch).  This recording is by Rebecca Burch, my sister.

Here are the words:

My tune: there’s no fixed words
to tell the band to play it loud,
Or when to break in to the verse.
My tune: I’ve got some chords
but notes avoid my melody,
and lyrics shine out when they clash.

My life, its ups and downs,
still move me, hurt me, comfort me.
My life, the plans I had,
all dashed by singing in a band.

My tune: I’ve got a first line
and no-one likes the harmony
or how it chimes with my tone of voice.
My tune: should I sing it loud?
But the choir don’t like how the lyrics feel
and I can’t help singing with my dancing feet.

My life, its ups and downs,
still move me, hurt me, comfort me.
My life, the plans I had,
all dashed by singing in a band.
