An unsung song

I've had the chorus for probably over a month. I've written the verses and the bridge over the past few weeks. I just have yet to figure out the right way to sing them and the perfect combination of chords. "perfect"

I really hope this song can fall into place because I really think that if sung in the right way, it could be another favorite.

Look out for it... Hopefully I'll figure it out one of these days.

In the next room

You haven't realized I've stopped breaking over you
Spilling lies is senseless cause I see right through
You think you've washed yourself pristine but i still see your stains
Finally decided it's not worth it
so walk away eh eh

I hear love in the next room and I don't know if it's true
I need someone to teach me
it's professional curiosity
I don't know what love is but at least this bed is warm
I don't know what love is but at least this bed is warm

I see it everywhere but I don't think it's real
The fantasy is hearts broken and love alike
It's probably just science so maybe we should just wait
I'm still trying to figure out if love's supposed to hurt
Is love supposed to hurt, is love supposed to hurt
is love supposed to hurt, is love supposed to hurt

I hear love in the next room and I don't know if it's true
I need someone to teach me
it's professional curiosity
I don't know what love is but at least this bed is warm
I don't know what love is but at least this bed is warm

I think this room is silent, but I know that they can hear me
I'd rather be alone then worry about love, No

I hear love in the next room and I don't know if it's true
I need someone to teach me
it's professional curiosity
I don't know what love is but at least this bed is warm
I don't know what love is but at least this bed is warm

I hear love in the next room and I don't know if it's true
I need someone to teach me
it's professional curiosity
I don't know what love is but at least this bed is warm
I don't know what love is but at least this bed is warm



This song feels very appropriate right now. The inspiration from which it came is happening as we speak.

I feel like sometimes song writing just falls into place. I wrote this song as just lyrics and how to sing it and what to repeat, etc. just happened the more and more I played it. This is one of my favorite songs I've written. If you peruse back a bunch of pages in my tumblr you'll find the video where I sing this.

A 3 year old little girl said, "Yo woman!" to me.

At Chili's, I am witnessing the decline of the human language before my very eyes.

Found: "Life is like hip hop" Kristen on 11/5/09

This is from almost exactly a year ago! It's funny that I've stumbled upon this old "journal entry" if you will... It makes me wonder what other gems I've hidden on this computer.


Did you ever want to do something big? Real big! To the fullest big.
… I’ll refrain from using any dance references. They probably don’t mean as much as they do to me.

But you know what… it makes a lot of sense. Hip hop.

In hip hop you dance to your fullest. You need to put every tiny muscle into making that one dance move POP.

It doesn’t matter if you’re just raising your arm or sliding down to the floor on your knees. You do it to the fullest or else it just doesn’t have that same effect. It doesn’t look good and the audience just goes… “eh.”

Go big or go home. That’s how it is in Hip hop.

And we can apply that to our LIVES! Go big or go home. If you choose to do something, you do it right or otherwise it’s not worth doing. I don’t want to live my life holding back. I have a lot to give and I want to be able to do it without being scared.

There is no room for fear in dancing. You can’t be afraid to give it your all.

I don’t want to be that girl half-effort in the back just merely doing the dance moves. I want to be that girl in the front of the formation full out and loving it. I may be there with mess ups and all. But, It’s all apart of the dance.
