Hard To Say It
Lyric: “Not too young to know” from Nat King Cole’s “Too Young”
Melody: I took that iconic guitar line in the chorus of Cher’s “Believe” for the beginning of my vocal melody.
Vibe: You guessed it… Lifehouse’s “Hanging by a Moment”
I had a completely different final draft last night at 10pm when I decided to incorporate less of the lyrics and melodies from the songs I was using, and lean more into the “original” part of the parameter, though it would mean a much shorter product. Had to switch my vibe from The Beatles to Lifehouse, which is a huge win in my book. Happy to submit this piece. What a brain teaser this assignment was, sheesh!
We’re not too young,
Too young to know
When it’s time to go.
Listen to your heart
And your good friends, too.
When she says “it’s hard to say it”
You know it’s true.
Looking for feedback on
Curious how you interpret the lyrics of this one.
