Verse 1:
I used to feel so alone,
I felt like life could push me away from now.
But since you came you turned it all around,
And all I know "" is that.

Chorus:
When you came into my life,
I felt a change I never felt before.
I"ll leave the past behind me,
Cause I know "" you"re here with me.

Interlude: Cadd9 Gmajor Em7 Dsus4 (x2)

Verse 2:
I used to doubt myself day by day,
Now look at me everything has changed.
What happened then will never be now,
Cause all I know is that...

Chorus:
When you came into my life,
I felt a change I never felt before.
I"ll leave the past behind me,
Cause I know "" you"re here with me.

Interlude: Cadd9 Gmajor Em7 Dsus4 (x2)

Bridge:
Leave the past behind,
Cause there"s nothing there for me.
All I need is you,
So don"t ever leave my side.

Chorus: Cadd9 Gmajor Em7 Dsus4 (one downward strum for the whole chorus)
When you came into my life,
I felt a change I never felt before.
I"ll leave the past behind me,
Cause I know "" you"re here with me.

Chorus:
When you came into my life,
I felt a change I never felt before.
I"ll leave the past behind me,
Cause I know "" you"re here with me

End: Cadd9 Gmajor Em7 Dsus4

You have forfeited every round therefore you are not valid to win the competition. Hence of that cause you are now out of the challenge and I am the winner of the competition. You were given only three days to write a song which was the time applied to each round. You are now disqualified and the definite winner is me.

My song was such a stroke of pure genius, it literally gave you a stroke and now you cannot recognize a masterpiece and that image that should appear in your brain's perception areas have now been replaced with something along the lines of "this peice of crap has forfeited the round. What a loser"

I submit to you and everyone else also, for you see, everyone has also had the same exact stroke -- that I have written a piece of pure melodic majesty, and is not to be devoted the slightest. Vote for me because... well, you had a stroke.

Therefore I must also not assume that I don't understand such a unique individual as yourself.

stop complaining because you don't know me at all. You don;t judge you must understand, you must not assume because what you did was you assumed the way i think.

That's what they all say. It's funny because you using the phrase "in my heart," is clearly a phrase you were influenced to use by the people around you. And I would also add that the firing of thoughts to write your completely original piece comes from no such organ found in the chest.

i wrote this song through my heart not through influence. Every lyric of the song is from the heart not influence. I am different to other people and it makes a difference from me and other people. Other people don't write from the heart they write by influence whilst i write from the soul and heart.

there are high notes in my song you seriously piss me off so just accept that you couldn't write a song in three days and leave this challenge for it is over now.

By even writing a song, which is based off of music to your liking, a cultural influence you belong to, a musical instrument as the guitar, which has been used in millions and millions of songs -- you're going to tell me you don't bludge? Music is a pyramid of influences as all other things in life bludge from similar concepts within that realm, dating back thousands of years ago.

I wrote that song myself. I never bludge anything.

Well, to say that my song is so horrid that you denounce it's existent is far too unfathomable for me. After all, your song did look like it belonged to the 'tween wave' era.

VanessaLo
Well don't bother talking to me when you can't even write a song you seriously don't play fair at all therefore you are disqualified for not following the rules.
