Rob Scallon Song Contest #RiffThatGotAway

Lyrics:
I don't deserve this
I'm so worthless
I try to build up courage
But I feel deserted
You say don't doubt yourself
look what you've accomplished
It's easier said than done
Everyone could use some help
But I'm to afraid to take it
I know that I am wrong
I don't know why you love me
Don't you think I'm crazy
The mistakes I've made are ugly
Now it's all hazy
I try and try and try again
to kill this voice inside my head
That tells me I'd be better dead
Maybe I'm worth it
Maybe I deserve it
I've been thinking all my life
It is time now to decide
Should I give it one more try
Now it's time to do it right

#RiffThatGotAway (Rob Scallon Song Competition)

This is my entry for Rob Scallon’s song competition #RiffThatGotAway.

Lyrics

Miss the times when I would look up at the stairs and see a happy ending,
Now my reality’s constantly pending
On if I’m pretending

This hue shift on the way I see my life is scary not arbitrary
It’s necessary maybe it’s all just temporary

Don’t wanna be tethered down I’ll still follow the rules and try my best to keep my morals straight
Let the old and new state of minds cooperate

Maybe that’s ok
My mind still open just don’t wanna break away

Too scared to face the cold
But I shouldn’t stay inside and do what I’m told
Got something keeping me
From losing all my sanity

I gota make my own way
Keep my own demons at bay
It’s used to be so easy
Won’t look to the stars cuz I’ll be

Making my own happy endings

Forget It - Leo Arnold

#RiffThatGotAway

Hey everyone, this is my entry for Rob Scallon's contest with Yousician, The Riff That Got Away!
It was so exciting to put this together in such a short time- it really came down to the wire!

I hope it brings joy to someone out there!

Lyrics:

Hey
When did you appear
You exploded into my mind
How'd I never refer
To you as anything
Other than a stranger, other than acquaintance
Other than a friend that I lost touch with
The time has passed us by

So you're the one that got away
I never saw it that way

Who the hell am I to act like
You were even mine to begin with
I'm falling apart
Trying hard to just forget it

Oh boy, the state of me now
In another universe you're the star of that show
But a minor role in this one, might've been the right one
Might have been the cause of my regret
The time has passed us by

Who the hell am I to act like
You were even mine to begin with
I'm falling apart
Trying hard to just forget it
Acting like I knew you that well
I'm falling apart
Maybe I should just forget it

Yeah
Who the hell am I to act like
You were even mine to begin with
I'm falling apart
Trying hard to just forget it
Acting like I knew you that well
I'm falling apart
Maybe I should just forget it

“Constantly” by Alex Rousso (Rob Scallon Yousician Contest)

#RiffThatGotAway

Lyrics:

We are, decimated everyday
There is no conceivable way to end this
How could you even think you are the key to this
No matter how hard we fight, we are doomed within this

Impending, doom we face
In this life, we are bait for disturbed beings
Walking earth, beside us,
Constantly

I am very sorry there’s nothing to be done
Believe me I wish there was a way through this
It’s a shame we must even deal with this
You must understand how doomed we are within this

Impending, doom we face
In this life, we are bait for disturbed beings
Walking earth, beside us,
Constantly

Donks (Dean Giacca) - The Sleep Robber: Rob Scallon #RiffThatGotAway

This is my entry for Rob Scallon's #RiffThatGotAway competition.

I haven't created any music or videos in a very very long time (over a decade). So whatever happens big thanks to Rob. Wanting to enter this competition forced me to create something I'm really proud of and it was a lot of fun too!

Lyrics below for anyone interested.

Verse 1

Don't you cry, dry your eye
Yes just one, it's okay guy
Or also Gal, you're my pal
You can dry the other one now

Jump around, and fall down
Slap your face with the ground
Look at me, you're the clown
Yes you are and I hope you drown

I got a bed time story for you

I call your phone, I hear it ring
Squeeze the door bell, It goes ding
Why won't you just let me win?
Let me in! I'm in a bin!

Chorus

Don't Rob me of my sleep
I've had 4 winks all week
Are you inside my head
Or under the bed
I just want to sleep
But you're killing my sheep
I won't do a thing you say
I'm so tired

Verse 2

Monkey see, Monkey do
Monkey wee, Monkey poo
Monkey sneeze, Monkey achoo
Monkey me? Monkey you!

Mary Mary, quite contrary
Marys hairy, bloody Mary
Marys scary, bloody mary
I'll say it 3 times noooooooooo

I got a bed time story for you

Tie your hands, to the fan
You look like a stupid man
Spin around, until you're dry
I fell down and I don't know why

(Chorus)

Verse 3

Did you like my story? For you

Fool me once, fool me twice
Fool me three times, not so nice
I'm so smart, I'm so clever
Fool me four times, that feels better

(Chorus)
Rob's so tired
We're so tired

Motes #RiffThatGotAway

I wrote this song for Rob Scallon's The Riff That got Away contest. I had a lot of fun working on it. This is my first song ever recorded and mixed in a DAW. I worked really hard on it. I hope you enjoy.

Rainy Day #RiffThatGotAway

Here's my submission for the #RiffThatGotAway Rob Scallon contest.
This is my fourth time recording anything and first time editing so I know it's rough but I had a lot of fun making it. I'm really excited to (finally!) be entering this contest because I only now have recording equipment. I wrote this song after driving down nearly the whole height of the UK with my family and it didn't stop raining the entire time. Also, Rob asked for the lyrics to hit him deep so I shoved some earnest stuff in there too (anything can sound like a metaphor for life if you try hard enough!). I decided to just use the first part of the riff because I preferred it being a two bar phrase.
Good luck to everyone entering and congratulations to whoever the winner is out there.

Movin' Along - Partial Recall | #RiffThatGotAway

Movin' Along by Partial Recall. This song is the first song that we have ever recorded as a group, and the first song I have ever been on as an individual. Hope you enjoy!

Entry for the the Rob Scallon #RiffThatGotAway contest. You can see that video here:

Rob Scallon Riff that Got Away Contest Entry

Recently Rob Scallon made a video on the best riff that he ever made that he couldn’t find a home for, so he made a contest where you put his riff in a song that you write. This is my entry.

The lyrics in the song are about how I can’t be with the person I love and that I have to move on because if I keep wanting it I’m just going to be more and more miserable. But there’s a part of the song where the music shows that I also can’t force myself to get rid of the feelings I’m feeling. But the end of the song I accept that there’s nothing I can do and that I just need to move on with my life.
