A Long Way Down

Shes a daydreamer shes not good for much. All she does is dream of what she could become. What she doesn't realize is without doin anything now. It'll all start crumbling down.

Chorus: Its a long way down when you're high up in the clouds. Its a painful fall when you're dreamin you've got it all. Its a slowly fading memory when you open your eyes and finally see. Its a long way down.

Now shes 23 starin out the window dreamin about tomorrow. She was just a girl but now shes grown. To scared to try to achieve what she wants. So she pretends shes the movie star shes watchin now. She pretends shes the singer on the radio right now. Her life is goin by fast she hasn't realized it yet the lesson that is. (repeat chorus)

She cant stop cryin now cause shes seen the truth. But she knows shes got somethin to prove. So she'll make that dream come true. (repeat chorus)

I think this could be a really good pop song. Sing by someone like Tatlor Swift or Arianna Grande. It flows quite nicely.

I love the optimism :) It's a pretty song, and you made the sad bits a little brighter with the last line. Great job! :D

Hey there! For your first song I think that this is pretty impressive. I like the chorus, I could see myself singing it in the car. I think it's a quick, simple song, but you were able to put a lot of thought into it and that is very special. The flow of this is nice and it would sound great being sung. I feel that this could either be sung slow or up beat and still have the sincere meaning you put in this song. You have a few grammar errors, but those are not a big deal. In the third stanza...

Great job! All you need is a few punctuation edits, and this would be 5/5! Really good!

This is absolutely beautiful. I can actually hear the music that goes with this :) But that may be because I like to sing a lot and make up my own tunes, lol XD. This actually reminds me of the song "Stand in the Rain" by Superchick.
