    Original Song: Wintergirl
    click to go back to the top.

    I wrote a song!!!

    It's heavily koped off Laurie Halse Anderson's novel Wintergirls, which I finished the other day. Don't let its relatively low Lexile range (720) fool you: this book is AMAZING. It's about anorexia and written mostly figuratively.

    Lyrics:

    Slowly

    Turning to dust

    She's thinner,

    Thinner than us

    Crossing the line,

    She passes by

    So slowly

    Chorus:

    Wintergirl

    You don't know what it feels like

    When you're always trying for more

    To be less

    Why settle for this

    When you can be the best

    Wintergirl.

    Verse 2:

    Slowly

    She's burning out

    Can't see

    The dis'ppearing smiles

    She's stopped trying to be

    Like the rest of us

    She can't stop

    Battle goes on

    Cos she's a

    Chorus 2:

    Wintergirl

    Didn't know what it would feel like

    To always be trying for more

    To be less

    Why settle for this

    When you can be the next

    Wintergirl.

    Verse 3:

    Slowly

    Her memory fades

    We forget

    The look on her face

    Too many days

    Trying to know

    Trying to feel

    Her pain

    that

    Chorus 3:

    Wintergirl

    We didn't know what it felt like

    When she was always trying for more

    To be less

    Why settle for this

    When she was the best

    Wintergirl.

    Tell me what you think!

    Personally, I think there's a lot to be brushed up on, but considering this is my first full recorded effort it's passable. Especially the tune. Which is very horrible but better than all my previous attempts.

    Basically it tells the story of an anorexic girl from the POV of people who see her. In the last verse she's died. In case you didn't notice.

    Finished Ophelia: A Novel today. Sooo good!

    [/EDIT] The video cannot upload. I think I'll try again another day.
