A Song For Sunfish

Last year, I told Sunfish I would write a song for her while she was in the hospital. Well, here you go Melissa- this one is for you- I just wrote it ;)

Swimming Towards the Sun

One more battle for you to face

Demons dancing ?round all over the place

But you?ve got what it takes

To bring them to their knees

You?re a fighter with a heart of gold

and you?re gonna be okay- wait and see

Sometimes you gotta choose to sink or swim

Keep your head above water when the tides move in

And I know you, you?re a strong one

You?re swimming towards the sun

Life can throw some curve balls

That can nearly knock you off your feet

Not sure which way to go

Or what destiny you?ll meet

But you gotta keep going

Though it seems like such a fight

Sometimes you gotta choose to sink or swim

Keep your head above water when the tide moves in

And I know you, you?re a strong one

You?re swimming towards the sun

Anyone else might?ve just sank down

but you just keep on splashing around??.

(Repeat chorus)

Carmen M. Taylor 2007

Wow Carmen, that's fantastic.

I was sort of singing it in my mind as I read it - i wonder if my tune was anything like the tune you've written for the song?

Would you be able to make a home recording of it to send to Melissa - I bet she would love to hear it.

Thanks, everyone! I have a MySpace Music page for my professional songs ;) I have a broken shoulder so I am limited to what I can do melodically and recording-wise right now- lol. Hope Melissa enjoys the lyric :lol:

Carmen,

Thanks for sharing a link to your site! I liked the song - you have a beautiful, rich voice. Thanks for sharing your gift of music with others.

If your able to when your shoulder heals, I'd love to hear a recording of your song for Melissa!

Thanks all, that's Julie Burton- a fantastic demo singer in Nashville on my page. I appreciate the positive feedback- hope Melissa enjoys "her" song ;)

Oh, I thought it was you singing! Oh well, silly me! ;)

I'm sure that you have a beautiful voice too, Carmen. If you ever do put a recording of yours on the internet, let us know!

Again, thanks for sharing your song for Sunfish. That was really neat.
