"All It Takes"


PeaceAngel

Recommended Posts

After reading the songs that other people here have written, I was inspired to try to write a song on my own. So I wrote this song, and this is the first real song I've ever written, so it's probably not as good as other songs people have written. So tell me what you think of it. I want honest feedback and advice so I can improve! Ok well here it is:

"All It Takes"

Lately I feel like I`ve been having this dream

That I would get up on a stage and just start to sing

My heart out, telling people how I feel

The crowd`s feeling my vibe and it felt so ill

But I never ever thought that this dream could come true

But it turns out anything can happen to you

You can do anything as long as you try

Add a pair of wings to your heart and you know you can fly

You could fly so high you could touch the sky

You have what it takes, don`t try and deny

Don`t take my word for it, go ahead, try it out

And soon enough, you`ll see what I`m all about

CHORUS

All it takes is a little inspiration

To reach your destination

All it takes is a little dedication

To reach the point of inflation

Where you feel like you can do anything

As long as you stay committed and follow your dreams

It`s really not as hard as it seems

All it takes is a little inspiration

I was inspired by other hip hop artists

Who write great rhymes that are smart and honest

They`re not just rapping about whack old things

That have no apparent point or meaning

They`re talking about things going on in life

Along with the stress and pain they have to strive

Of course these people are going to have a stash

But they aren`t rapping just to get some cash

They`re proving to the world that they can do something

Instead of sitting around like a bum doing nothing

They`re showing everybody what they can do

And trust me, the same thing can happen to you

You could be well-known, you could be discovered

But it won`t ever happen if you don?t uncover

Don`t take my word for it, go ahead, try it out

And soon enough, you`ll see what I`m all about

CHORUS

It makes me sick, I`m telling you

When I don`t see credit given where it`s due

To the people who dedicate their lives to their dreams

And all the critics want to do is make a scene

I`m talking about people like Will Smith and LL Cool J

They`ve been around a long time and still go a long way

Why is it that some rappers` albums go multiplatinum

When the ones that deserve it get gold as maximum?

Probably `cause there`s not enough publicity

There songs don`t get played on the radio or aired on tv

But these people have true fans that recognize

The true meaning of hip hop through their own eyes

Don`t take my word for it, go ahead, try it out

And soon enough, you`ll see what I`m all about

CHORUS (2x)

I don't have a mic right now, but even if I did, I wouldn't start recording yet cuz I'm just starting out just to see what it's like and to see if I'm any good at songwriting. So I'll keep working at it and write a few more songs and we'll see what happens! :2thumbs:
