Dear letterists,

You know by now that I love music. Writing is my first love but music definitely my second.

One song that came to mind when I heard the theme for the next few days would be about the galaxy, was "Space Oddity" by David Bowie.

A well known song of course.
So I dare you all, to write your own short, long, silly, funny, serious or crazy song about space!

Perhaps about the stars, the existence of other things, the immense size, the planets.... Anything!

Have fun. That's all that matters. Tag your letter "music".

You may be a million miles,
Million miles,
Million miles away,
I'll keep you,
Close to heart,
In my mind,
All this time away

These are the days,
When you feel destroyed,
These are the days,
When you feel alone

Missing a piece,
That's part your life,
An integral part,
Keeping you alive

These are the days,
You call testing times,
These are the days,
You still stay strong.

THE BEST

Delta: You never asked why I was in the cage.
Paul: You're either a spy or a defector.
Delta: I can say the same about you.
Paul: The innkeeper told me there's a diner in town that serves ice cream.
A man driving a black mustang picks up a waitress from the diner.
The escapees ogle her ass.
Paul recognizes her driver.

Distorted Voice of Reason

Echo: He could definitely be lying to you. It might be true that he's protecting you and himself.
Guard: The ball was never in my court.
Echo: You're all expendable.
Guard: How long have I been here?
Echo: If you're talking to me, too damn long.

“Why Are We Here?”

A friend of mine once said to me
that he wasn’t really clear
on the reason behind existence,
“Why are we here?”

Is it to forge a cleaner soul,
to take our turn at bat?
To wrap ourselves around a pole,
and learn great things from that?

It’s not a stupid question, though.
I’ve given it some thought.
To think of our existence
Confuses me a lot!

Are we here to find the perfect match
of fortune and true love?
And to find out after searching
that they rarely go hand in glove?

Are we here to learn great truths
and tip the scales to balance true?
Are we here to keep their game in play,
to give Karma something to do?

It’s not a stupid question, though.
I’ve given it...

Stars Alive  lyrics by Theodore

As I gaze to distant planets
The oceans call my name
Wonderful fantastic images
Flood across my brain

Rocky gassy terrain unknown
Elevated to livable space
I wonder if you'd meet me there
The stars seem out of place

Chorus:
Martha, my friend
Outer space calls out to you
To be the best in all the world
Stars alive we can radiate
Martha, my friend
Let us settle in our town
A distant memory to share comes
The heaven's call to fate
Martha, my friend

My bloodline resides near by
A satellite directs the way
Let me give you a tour of the heavens
Only temptation will be to stay

The streets are being developed
A few places seem like home
An alien race can't take...

Million Miles Beyond (Original composition)

[Verse 1]
Looking at the sky tonight
With no lights that could cloud my sight
The stars shine bright
In the vastness of the great beyond
And I, wonder how it feels to look upon the earth from a million miles beyond
Sit tight in a rocket ship that sails away in the night

[Chorus]
You know, maybe it's true that we're so small
But we made this far after all
Past the earth, past the wars
Into the vast skies up above

[Verse 2]
My ship made it out
I burst through the atmosphere
The earth is a little dot
And my problems seemed so little from up here
But I still wonder, is this how being a million miles beyond feels?
Cause I'm here still, staring at the ...

#Song writing challenge
My own song: Stars that don't shine

Verse 1 :
Just take a glance
of what surrounds you
Maybe in space,
the planets revolve around you
Look at those stars!
Oh! Don't you envy them?
Cuz they shine brighter
Than the ones which don't

Pre- chorus:
But I know that you're waiting to see them shine.
Yeah, you don't lose hope cuz you know they'll shine someday.

Chorus 1 :

It doesn't matter how far
The stars may be
Just keep admiring the beauty of
The stars that don't shine
Cuz they are luminous even if
they're invisible to your eyes
You know your worth,
every treasured moment spent in space
So, keep admiring the beauty of
The stars that don't shine.

Verse 2 :
E...

As the clock ticks 4, Strain your ears and you'd hear a murmur of vagabonds ,
While a cuckoo will tune itself to the song of dawn ,somewhere you'd hear a distant bark , or the honk of a rare car, a tinkling from the bicycle passing by , screech of a sleepy owl, soft cry of neighbour's baby , a squeak of the hidden mouse, before your alarm comes up with its own peice of sound , open those eyes wide and hear the secrets whisper of the Cosmos, if you happen to wake up during the interim of morning and dark , strain your ears hard enough and listen to the music playing within the heart !

They say it takes two to tango.
I prefer someone who can keep up dancing freestyle with me.
Moving on our own but synchronize in a way only two of us can understand.

I can see the pain in your eyes.
I want to relieve you of it.
Allow me to so you can feel whole again. As I sit back listening to music, you are on my mind. Thinking of ways for you to see the existence that’s actually in front of you.

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
And don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

Don't be afraid
I've taken my beating
I've shared what I've made
I'm strong on the surface
Not all the way through
I've never been perfect
But neither have you
So, if you're asking me, I want you to know

RIP Chester!
