Cooking Little Love Letters

Each day I write you love letters  
To show how much I care  
I start with an open heart  
Then serve it medium rare  
I choose words that are savory  
Spiced the way you like  
To nourish you with all my love  
And tell you it's all right  
I could spend all day long  
Every day of my life  
Cooking little love letters  
To sweeten bitter strife

Peddler..

So, who will mail black me? I stand still..
You'll never see me rusting am stainless steel..
Every ghetto streets they know me I pay my dues..  
Teds and Bundys dread meeting me,  
I stand on my knees..  
Buffalo buffalo bill I post no bills..  
Colony colony I ride on my wheels..  
Junkies beg to know me I roam all streets..  
Flunkies walk up to meet me, hot on my heels..  
Am not a lazy bone I don't feed on debris..  
In this business of self destruction I got many deals..  
Peddling junkies with pills I got no heal..  
These series of misfortunes doesn't seem to be real..  
Am I the merchant of this fortune?    
This is surreal..  
This is the only brand new me I got my seal..  
Little baby when am no more you can read in my will..  
Every junkie pleases to see me across the streets..  
Smugglers line up before me to pay them bills..  
Every flunky rush to shake me as I walk..  
Commandeered chain of commandos
I know every link..  
All the thugs rise up to greet me, this is me they feel..  
Once upon a time a China I got many skills..  
Come! Run! Squat before me, I appeal with no pills..  
The police cannot drill me, I just know so many leads..  
Toms, Dicks and Harrys fear me, I stand on my knees..  
All these papers you saw me reading    
I love stories..  
By chance you want to test me I sting like bees..  
Nobody seems to stop me in my colony..

Circle

There is no wall there is no gate
There is no time while we wait
There is no you there is no me
There is no singular eternity

A circle starts where it will end
A new beginning around the bend
And so it went and so it goes
And what it's for no one knows

So on we walk so on we run
Have it all as we have none
A dream of life a life of dream
Maybe more than it may seem

Round it goes round is all
And we rise to see us fall
As we plead why oh when
Then we start it all again

The winner gets their poem set to music and demoed for free! All credit for the lyrics will be attributed to the author.


I assume you have contracts and necessary paperwork ready to be put in place , for the winning lyricist here, to be able to retain rights to their words and receive royalties from their portion of your demo?    I also assume you'll be posting the song on  your bandcamp page , which allows download music  purchases to be made , from the artists there, hence why you need to get the legal aspects in order if you'll be receiving any monies from this project while using lyrics that someone here/other than you, wrote .
