SAC 4x4 Songwriting Challenge 2016 - Week 4 

Our challenge for Week 4 of the SAC 4x4 Songwriting Challenge was to tie two tunes together. Something I don't typically think to do, strategically, but was indeed how The Weather Girl came about a few years ago, after it occurred to me that the lyrical idea I had fit perfectly with the tone of the piano riff I had kicking around for a while. A happy accident :) This time the pairing was to be intentional and using it as a purposeful strategy was actually a fun process. Flipping through the various song bits I had hanging around my data base and comparing and contrasting the various potential combinations was an exciting discovery process. In the end, I decided to use some VERY old ideas that were long overdue for completion. This particular recording of it is rather quiet and a cappella, so you might need to turn up the volume, haha :) Lyrics are below.


V1
Will you be my rock in the spring, when the ground is soft
And will you be my shade on those too hot summer days?
Can you be my evergreen when all the other leaves fall red?
Can you be my anything, when I am cold as ice on a winter's night?

CH
Well if sometimes you just can't, then I will understand
And try to be all of these things for you

V2
Will you be my rock, like a swing when my world's chaos?
And will you be my strength on those too hard let down days?
Can you be my energy when all my batteries are drained?
Can you be my anything when I am starving for sight to put up the fight?

CH 
Well if sometimes you just can't, then I will understand 
And try to be all of these things for you
And if sometimes you can't stand then I will be your friend
And try to be your running legs for you

V3
Will you be my rock on a ring when the time has come?
And will you be my saviour?
Can you be my one belief when all the other faiths fall dead?
If you can't be my anything when I am choking on fright, it'll be alright

BR
'Cause (oh) sometimes we shrug and (oh) sometimes we shudder 
And (oh) sometimes we crash, but (oh) you will always discover

CH
That if sometimes you just can't, then I will understand  
And try to be all of these things for you 
But if sometimes I just can't, then please understand 
And recognize that we are only human
We are only human
