Only ONE hour has passed??? I’m so bored, but I do have a list of rhymes for all three words love, you and back. [Included in the next installment].
It’s dawned on me that the phrase “love you back” could also mean “I’d love to have you return”.
And “boomerang”. Fits both – 2-way love (love mutually returned), and, you’ve gone and now you’ve returned.
Box 1: 2-way elation. You love me and I Love You Back.
Box 2: Oh, no, you’ve left – I’d Love You Back.
Box 3: You’ve returned – it’s wonderful, I Love You Back.
Shaping up: POV = me speaking to you.
Where’d you go?
Why’d you go?
Did you stop loving me? Prison sentence? Hospital?
Why did you come back?
Box 1 looks “stable”. Box 2 is “unstable”. Box 3 is back to “stable”.
If this is going to be Country, then the three verses are going to roughly need the same structure – stresses and rhyme scheme. So, maybe I can differentiate stable from unstable by choice of rhyming words?? (Perfect rhymes in 1 and 3, assonance and consonance in 2).
Box 1 could also hint at trouble, e.g. you know I love you back, right? So it could also be unstable.
Or, maybe it’s unstable-verse1, stable chorus, unstable verse-2, stable chorus, stable bridge you’ve come back, stable (resolved) chorus?? Less writing = fewer splinters in AIC…
Ah, no, it should be unstable-verse1, unstable chorus, unstable verse-2, unstable chorus, stable bridge you’ve come back, stable (resolved) chorus?? The unstable chorii can have odd line counts and finish on suspended notes, finally resolving to a chorus with one more line and finishing on a root note.
Now on to thesaurifying various words to see where that will take my brain…
But first, I really should check my email, facebook and the forum :-). And the dog wants me to take him out.
