This Is The Life

I am at the half way mark of writing 50 songs!  I've got until October the 1st to write 25 more.  So I am just slightly ahead of schedule which feels great.

Here's song #25!

Oh, this is the life-
floating downstream and avoiding the strife
It feels good to me
Sitting around under the shade of a tree

When I don't think about what could  come or look back with regret about something that I've done
Then I am better off

Oh, now is the time
so I'll stay here in this moment cause it's really all that's mine
I've got all I need
When I don't hold on too tight, love grows around me like a weed

chorus

I know enough to know that I don't know nothing
Nothing...

chorus
oh this is the life...

Dear Kerri-this is just amazing that you have committed to writing 50 songs!!! Truly amazing! I love your words...they come deep down from your heart. And you have a beautiful voice...thick like velvet but sweet too.

Very BEAUTIFUL, sultry and deep voice, love this one kerri!!! maybe orange dragonflies or the colors of dragonflies could be one of your own songs...you are rockin' it...i can also hear an entire band around your soulful singing!! xo

Roberta said...

Congratulations Kerri...I know you can do it! I posted a fun quiz today for finding out about your creative style...you might enjoy it because it also talks about music and writing songs and poems. It was quick and fun and just what I needed to keep me motivated with my challenge as well. Have a wonderful week, fondly, Roberta

Oh my goodness - 50 songs in 90 days! That's, well, amazing! Love this song - wonderfully drifting, happy-go-lucky feeling, and very true about being in the present. Just what I needed to hear today. :)

I can't believe you have written so many songs. Your talent is amazing!!! I love hearing you sing. Maybe one day when I get to Dallas, I can hear you live.

Gina Lee Kim said...

I love that beautiful note change (or is it chord change/progression?) in the chorus.

Just beautiful, heartfelt and pure poetry!
