Songwriting & Context – ST4: Origin Song

I’ve chosen to write my origin song about the period during sixth form when my friends and I would eagerly wait for Friday nights to meet up at one of our houses, each of us with a crate of cider or a bottle of wine under our arms, to talk and laugh and share our thoughts with one another. It was the highlight of our week, and even though we’re spread apart from one another, Aberdare, Manchester, Cheltenham and London, we still make time for one another whenever we can. This song is a tribute, in a sense, to the friendship between, and the unbreakable bond we formed, while still in our teens.

Verse 1
The bells ring
And it’s down the hill we walk
To catch the bus back home; don’t be late
The ties come off
We lace some Chucks on to our feet
Money in our pockets; it’s time to go

Chorus
We laugh, we live, we love
All the pieces of the puzzle have fallen in place
We laugh, we live, we love
We take our time, we’re going nowhere fast

Verse 2
The night falls
And the barman shouts ‘last call!’
We hurry down our drinks; somebody spills
Let’s go now
It’s time to make our way back home
‘Same time next week?’ asks Josh; ‘Well of course.’ 

Chorus
We laugh, we live, we love
All the pieces of the puzzle have fallen in place
We laugh, we live, we love
We take our time, we’re going nowhere fast

Interlude

Chorus
We laugh, we live, we love
All the pieces of the puzzle have fallen in place
We laugh, we live, we love
We take our time, we’re going nowhere fast
