Background:
I sometimes write songs.
Mainly for myself!
But, I once had an online friend who was an artist, and she asked me to write a song for her.
I said "sure, but to make it truly YOURS, what would you like it to be about? Do you have any creative ideas that you want me to include?"

The only idea that immediately came to her mind was that when she was painting... she sometimes got so involved with the creative process, so lost in it.. that she actually felt that she was becoming a part of it... and that her and the painting were coming together as one.

"That''ll do nicely!" I said, and ten minutes later I had written the following (short story) song!

2 become 1

I Know a girl who isn’t happy, but you never see a tear,
Her hand glides across the canvas, and the images appear.
It’s like the birth of something living, like a flower in the rain,
She gives so much to the creation as her fingers dip into the pain...
Blood-Red skies reflect her anger, Cool Blue oceans fill with tears,
A Yellow moon for love that’s missing, as a crystal white dream disappears.

Can two become one? Can two become one?
Can two become one? Can two..... Become one?

Sweat is running down her body, like the colours on the screen,
They mingle in a pool together, like two lovers in a dream.
She smiles with all the pleasure of the image taking shape,
It won’t be long until it’s finished, and at last she’ll have escaped...

Can two become one? Can two become one?
Can two become one? Can two..... Become one?

A crowd gathers round the picture of the girl who disappeared,
The face inside’s so realistic, you can almost taste the tears.
Someone gasps with realisation, they just don’t know what to say,
The signature that’s in the corner, it’s written round the other way...

The two become one.. The two become one..
The two become one.. The two..... Become one!


cheers,
Gordi.
