Lady In Waiting: Part 1

In talking with a friend today, I was reminded when I discovered the relationship between music and poetry. TL;DR – They’re cousins! Throughout the past few years, I have written words that I didn’t initially know if they were a poem or a song.

My first ever poem was based on blues lyrical structure and had music themes present. Years later, I turned that poem into a song, adding further lyrics. I’ve also intentionally made song lyrics poetic; in a way, I can’t help myself.

Anywho, I want to share a concept album with you that I’ve completed (for now). It’s not on Spotify, Apple Music or any other platform. I’ve decided my songs are best served for my processing and as an outlet for my creativity. If I play it for family or close friends and they like it, fine.

However, I will be posting the lyrics to the 5 songs under 5 parts. The album is entitled “Lady In Waiting.” I would be so happy to have you comment below with where you think the album is going and what is up with the girl, Irene. Hint: the album is an overall story, where each song tells a part of that story.


Song 1: “Irene, My Love”

Verse 1

Let me tell you ’bout my girl

She changed my life, became my world

And I can’t do without…

I met her first by the sea

She drew me in, let me see her treasure

So I can’t do without…

No, I can’t do without…

Chorus 1

She’s quite an enchanting beauty

Who seduced, mesmerized and bewitched me

So I begged her that same day in May to marry me

Verse 2

We woke together next morn

She brushed her hair, again I was torn

‘Cuz I can’t do without…

No, I can’t do without…

She vanished at sunset

Years past I still have no regrets

As I learn to do without…

One day soon, I’ll see my spouse…

Chorus 2

She’ll always be my sweet lady

Who enchanted, once loved and beheld me

Please Irene come back to be with me…
