Alan Nield – Consumed

 

“Consumed”

Alan’s lyrics in need of a tune:

It’s an interest that’s all; I’ll get to it one day,
but it nagged and nagged…… daring me to play.
Have you ever regretted not doing your thing,
when deep down in your soul you knew there was something?

As a young bloke I could feel, there was something hidden there,
but for me at that time,  I just didn’t care.
Doing this and that, not giving a crap
But something deep down…….was setting me a trap.

When it hooks you….. look out,  it’ll get you by the balls.
Never enough time, just one more for the road
Just can’t get enough, idle moments are a strain,
So I look forward to the moment……. we’re back into it again.

The Trumpet at the time, the wrong choice I knew,
I didn’t have the patience,  and it really wasn’t cool.
But the nudge at this time,  was the right time to dare,
and there’s that feeling I felt……. when I just didn’t care.

Now natural ability,  is something I’m without,
but the challenge and reward,  is addictive no doubt.
Time is being lost,  and pressures abate,
surely this time….. I’ll get it to sound great.

Now you have something to answer to,
your interest and support makes it easier to grow.
That feeling I get when a note is achieved,
And the pleasure I get when I share it with you.

I know it was there…. and not nurtured early on.
Time ‘s not something you buy, or idly sit back on.
Our lives we have to share,  all things over time,
So please just understand it’s a passion of mine.

When it hooks you look out,  it’ll get you by the balls.
Never enough time, just one more for the road
Just can’t get enough, idle moments are a strain,
So I look forward to the moment……. we’re back into it again.

    Hey Alan, well done. I knew you were progressing well but song writing? Sensational.
    Not only have you awoken a passion inside yourself, you have inspired others to follow their passions. It doesn’t get much better than that.
