Happy to be back for my second year.

Looking forward to writing, enjoying everyone's creations and collaborating.

I am a lyricist. I most often write lyrics first but enjoy writing to existing music too.

Thank you Andrea, for that lovely Whole White Moon comment :)

Hi Andrea - thanks for listening to “Six Months Ago Today” - your comments, as always, were very kind and extremely insightful! The pain, unfortunately, is real. It’s good therapy to write and sing about it, especially if it prompts such positive responses from listeners. So - thank you! :-)
[avatar]
Your recent comment on "Heads Will Roll" made my day. NEVER have I and my little uke been mentioned as anywhere adjacent to Metallica before, and I like it if I managed to cross that line, even with one toe. :)

@nadine
Thanks a lot for your comments and returning the tit4tat. I don't write many positive songs, so I'm happy to hear that "Overjoyed" made you smile. As for "Backwards" the organ is just a placeholder that I need for a mezzosoprano melody. I'm curious about Kate's prompt. But many people commented that they enjoyed the organ, let's see how dense the arrangement will be in the end. I look forward to all these collabs turning into full songs in the next months. It will be a blast, but also a lot of work!

Hi Andrea, Thanks so much for all your kinds comments and recommending "Mixing Up a Drink of Uncertainty."

@nadine
Thanks for your comment on "I ove my life". So glad you enjoyed my lyrics!
[avatar]
I’m also a metal head don’t tell my classical/musical/pop friends :) what I like about your message is that music moves you to cry!! Your great empathy is an asset to your writing; don’t ever forget that!! Thank you Andrea!
[avatar]
Thank you, Andrea!! You often write such powerful lyrics, that reading your comment made me feel proud! I enjoyed working with @mctown and @gm7 !! You've had an excellent FAWM!! Congrats on 22 creations!

Klaus did a great job with these goofy lyrics, thanks Andrea.

Thanks, Andrea

You are such a talented writer; it's always an honour to get to work with you. And thank you for making me do a good job with your lyric! I've been recovering from a low-grade depression/burnout for a number of reasons and sometimes it's too easy to take the easy way out of things. I needed FAWM this year and I needed to do a good job on our collab!
[avatar]
Likewise, @andrea! It was a great time, and looking forward to finishing our songs <3

Hey! Yes, I will Collab. andytoomey at gmail

@n1742
Thanks for your comments on “Mayday”. Hope you’ve had a great FAWM. Looks like you’ve done a lot of work. I’ll have a listen to a few more.
[avatar]
Thanks for reaching out with words of thanks for our collaboration on "Average Joe". We managed to garner a lot of good comments about that song, didn't we! I couldn't have reached my FAWM target without being able to work with good lyricists like you, so I am indebted to you and those with that talent. If you ever have spare lyrics that you'd like to trust me with, by all means, email them to me.. My mailbox is open to you.

Hi again, Andrea - thanks from me also for your kind words on the ‘collab’ I did with @paulharrison, though “Moments Of Love” was really his beautiful song with just a few extra touches from me. And thank you so much for our collaborations this month too - “These Haunted Dreams” is still a welcome earworm for me! :-)
[avatar]
@nadine
Thank you, Andrea! I'm happy you enjoyed "Magnetic Rose". The team did a great job - I just produced ^^
[avatar]
Thanks so much for your kind comments on "Moments of Love." I especially appreciate your taking the time away during "crunch time" when many people are busy with their posting their own songs.
[avatar]
Thank you for your nice feedback on my song with @carroll, I Just Miss Being Us. Thanks for listening. 💕
[avatar]
Just saw that you left a comment on Somewhere In The World, It’s Yesterday. I’m glad you were touched by that song. As I wrote it, I had Marieke in mind as the musician/singer, and I think she came through in spades. So happy you liked the song.
[avatar]
Andrea, your comments mean a lot to me. Yes, Because It Ends is a little sad, but hopefully, the message soothes some of the sadness and gives us a reason to enjoy every single day. Working with Dominick was wonderful, as you know. He grasped what I was going for, and encouraged me every step of the way. Every writer should be so lucky!

@jeff9
Thanks, Andrea, for the kind words about Nothing Burns Like the Blues. And big congrats on landing a trophy.
[avatar]
Thanks so much for busting my Zong on “Ludicrosity”, Andrea! Views and comments definitely much harder to come by as this last week goes by! Well done for ‘winning’, btw! I’ve given up all hope of hitting 14, but taking “These Haunted Dreams” as an alternative victory for us both! :-)
[avatar]
Thanks for listening to our "Catch the Train" collab, as well as your kind comment on my "I am the Salty Sea!" Much appreciated.
[avatar]
That was such a sweet message, Andrea!! Thank you so much. I have a harmony challenge and a collab I started the first week of FAWM to finish up over the weekend. I hope you had an awesome month of writing!!

@mikeb
Thanks for the comment on my collab with Tammy, 'Defy Gravity'!
[avatar]
Thanks Andrea, that will be it I think for my input. I see you are having a good one :-)
[avatar]
Andrea, It means a lot to me when you like a song. Thanks for your comments on Never Fall In Love With A Musician. They do have that power, don't they? Thanks for your comments. I'm glad you liked the song.
[avatar]
Thanks for commenting on my collab song "Defy Gravity" with mikeb.
[avatar]
Hi Andrea - thanks so much for your kind words on “Two Bottles Of Beer” - one of those rare occasions when everything came together just as I’d hoped, and the end result maybe even exceeded my (usually way over-optimistic) expectations. Hope we can do one more collab in the last week? Maybe something a bit slower? What do you think? :-)
[avatar]
Thanks Andrea, for your kind comments on my songs, really appreciate it

Keep going…Andrea….we still have time…write..write..let the magic of your pen shows you the flow
Keep inspiring us all
[avatar]
Thanks for the comment on “Catching the Light”, that second verse went through revision after revision, so I appreciate the comment that it worked. 😁
[avatar]
Andrea, I had the same reaction you did to that last line in V3 in Something for Nothing! Whoo-Boy! Ed's delivery really got me. Thanks for listening and commenting.
[avatar]
Congratz, Andrea, 😀

you just hit 14 songs, and each one has its own complete aura

You have rich imagination, keep impressing us :)

@nadine
Thanks for your comments, Andrea! I'm happy you enjoyed "Glimpse" and my skirmish writes. I somehow feel home in heavier and darker genres.
[avatar]
So glad you liked "who's the bear" I had fun with the write!
[avatar]
Thank you for your kind words. Have a happy fawming
[avatar]
thank you for your thoughts on renewable happiness. my feeling is that on can have a life of peace and love, but happiness, is fleeting, a transitory high. the desire for happiness can only lead to unhappiness because the failure to maintain that high leads to depression. just accept the moments of happiness that come your way, and make love and peace your foundatiob, and all will be well.

@crisp1
Thank you for all your recent comments, Andrea. I don't think anyone's ever used the word "badass" to describe one of my lyrics before. Love it! Hope you are enjoying FAWM!
[avatar]
Thanks for your enthusiasm about "The Algorithm". I had fun with the lyrics provided by @lyricslinger.

@thetau
Yes... It is right out of the 30's. But I'm thinking a "54 convertible" would be nice. Fred Astaire dancing with, You know... Marylin Monroe Singing it.

Thanks for your comment on "Carry me home". I'm glad you enjoyed! I really don't know how the song happened it just came and I had to write it down.
[avatar]
@mikeb
Thanks for the comment on 'A Place to Play/A Place to Rock'! I hope they don't get caught, it will leave the rock opera without an ending!

@oswlek
I merely speak the truth, Andrea. The truth and nothing more. 😎
[avatar]
Andrea, Glad you enjoyed Love Doesn't End When It's Over. Thank you for commenting. And Wow--look at all the songs you have here. I need to catch up on my listening. What a great FAWM you're having!
[avatar]
@oswlek
Wow, Andrea. Thank you so much for your comment on "Mist". That was a mighty kind thing for you to say.
[avatar]
I love you comments…Thank you! I hope you have a nice Valentine’s Day yourself.
[avatar]
Thank you so much for the nice comment on "I Hate When We Don't Talk" <3
[avatar]
Andrea, thanks for all the comments. I’m really glad you listened to and commented on Cattleya. I’m not great with lyrics but I thought those were better than my usual. Your comment was insightful too, the song was about my wife, boundaries and acceptance.

Regarding Dorian Delorean, the lyrics that DT creatively wrote had to do with modal music. I’m no music theory person but there are seven modes in music: Dorian, Aeolian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixydian, Locrian and one more that wasn’t used in the song. DT took the title and came up with some fun and funny musical wordplay of the various modes. It’s hilariously pure Taro.
[avatar]
Just blown away by your reaction to my song ‘Hey, Dad!’ - thank you so very much, Andrea! Writing and playing it was a hugely emotional experience for me, so to read your kind and supportive comments was a real boost! Thank you again! :-)
[avatar]
Thanks for all the comments…You’re the best!
[avatar]
Hi Andrea, I just had a major malfunction and next thing I knew I had commented on your Superhuman song like fifteen times. I’ve deleted all but one. I hope I didn’t mess up you soundboard or homepage.

Your song was awesome, BTW. But I like to repeat myself 😜
[avatar]
Thanks for listening to my songs :)

Thanks for your feedback on Wish I was a Ghost!

Thanks for reading my lyrics to Yodeling Cow. And there is a track to listen to, I think the mp3 server was down yesterday. It is a happy country rock tune.

@nadine
Thank you, Andrea! I'll take a listen later.

@nadine
Thanks a lot for your comment on "Pay It Forward". Yes this song has a happy and friendly feel. I just updated the song info and inserted a version with some lovely vocals!
[avatar]
Hi Andrea - thanks for listening and commenting so positively on ‘An Alcoholic’s Tale’. To know that my words and my music can evoke such an emotional reaction has made my day, my week and my month! Thank you!!! :-)
[avatar]
Thank you for your kind comment and feedback. Very much appreciated. :)
[avatar]
@andrea Morning from Norway! I'll throw in the rest of the arrangement that I imagine for the song this weekend and share asap. Have a lovely Friday!
[avatar]
Thanks so much for your lovely comments on ‘Melancholy’. You’ll know now how far out of my comfort zone I was with ‘These Haunted Dreams’ - which has become a very welcome earworm btw! :-)
[avatar]
Thank you for the listen and comment on my You Can't Mistake It (a Valentine) song, much appreciated!!
[avatar]
Lololol

well…if you want you could write a verse about what you think it is and I’ll do one about what I think it is 😜

I think I meant very cool (dank) swingy and sexy (swank) but I’m also just kinda dumb…?

@oswlek
Thanks for checking out "Carolina" and for leaving such a kind comment, Andrea. I really appreciate it.

Thanks for visiting "Out of the Blue (Came You)" while the paint's still wet. I appreciate your kind comment.
[avatar]
Thank you for commenting on my Condor song! Appreciate it! My throat infection is still aboard the boat, but hoping it will disembark in a day or two more, so I can get recording!
[avatar]
Thank you, Andrea, for the look and kind comments. I've been slammed lately but I'm going to find time to check out some of my watch list peeps. I know you'll have some good ones. Wishing you a productive FAWM!

@nadine
Thanks a lot Andrea! It makes me happy to read that you enjoyed my lyrics.
[avatar]
Sounds good! Take your time - I will need some time, too. 😊
[avatar]
I am open for a collab! But I am questioning how we can do that? Maybe I could use some of your lyrics and try to build a song around?
[avatar]
thank you so much for your comment!! the title was a joke that i kept in my head for a LONG time so i'm happy you appreciate how incorporated it into the song :)
[avatar]
I'll see if I can make some headway on Average Joe tonight. Thanks for the go-ahead. If I can make it happen, I'll email you the song for approval before posting.

@clioem

Hi Andrea. Thanks for giving a nod to "The Only Way to Go". @nancycunning posted some good lyrics and I just had to see if I could create suitable music. The project made it a fun day for me.

@jeff9
Hi there, Andrea and thanks very kindly for your nice comment about my thing with Doug, "Pack Up and Leave". His songs sing themselves sometimes.
[avatar]
Thank you so much for the amazing compliments on my song! I’m so glad you liked it!! Really appreciate you listening and can’t wait to get a chance to hear your stuff (when I get off the plane I’m currently on!)! 😀 Let me check in with you when I get back about a possible collab - thanks so much for asking!

Hi Andrea! Thank you for taking the time to listen and for your comment on “Shut Out, Shut Down.” I appreciate you. Happy FAWM! Listening to your tracks now.
[avatar]
Hi Andrea! Hope you got the tech trouble you asked about over on the Muse sorted out? Lyrics for https://write.fawm.org/songs/12505 would be most welcome! 😊
[avatar]
Thank you for the comment! Honestly I'm pretty surprised at the results - I didn't think I would be quite as pleased as I am with my first foray here. Being immersed in so much encouraging energy here is definitely a big help.
[avatar]
Thanks so much for your great comments!

And I sent you something!

Thanks for commenting on The World Can Be A Critic. Happy Fawm!

Thanks for stopping by and giving "Passengers" a whirl, Andrea.

On another note.... this is your second year? I was under the impression you were more of a FAWM veteran than me. You certainly come off like someone who knows what she is doing!
[avatar]
Hi, Andrea, Glad you liked the lyrics to If This Is Love, I Don't Like It. I'm also eager to hear what Gwyn does with it!

Welcome back! I'm trying a minimum FAWM experience, limiting myself to exclusive challenges, finishing half written demos from last year, and collabs I promissed for months. No idea if it works xD
I'm looking forward to reading your lyrics. Happy FAWM!
