Girl with an old soul

Verse

She loves the way they sang and danced.

Their flair for fashion back then.

The way love was steeped in romance.

The confidence of the men.

Chorus

Born too late it is her fate.

She feels she’s out of place.

She longs for the days of old.

The girl with an old soul.

Verse

She feels as if she don’t belong.

Wishes she lived in the past.

Back in the day when men were men.

When they had a touch of class.

Chorus

Born too late it is her fate.

She feels out of place.

She longs for the days of old.

The girl with an old soul.

Verse

She lives thru celluloid heroes.

Matinee idols of old.

Romance, adventure and mystique.

When the stars shined as bright as gold.

Bridge

She dreams about happy endings

but the futures not found in the past.

Chorus

Born too late it is her fate.

She feels she’s out of place.

She longs for the days of old.

The girl with an old soul.

Hi Carroll, 

I totally enjoyed the read... I was trying to put some music around it. It´s a rough demo and I am not sure if you enjoy it. It´s an early vocal take...

Love your take on it.  Captures the mood as intended. Please follow up and complete it. Use it however you wish. I wrote it for my niece who is fascinated with the 30's 40's and 50's. Really appreciate it!

Martin, I think you did a great job. The music matches the feeling of the lyrics perfectly. Nice retro feel to it. This is definitely worth finishing in my opinion.

Hi Carroll and Gavin, 

gosh, my vocal take was complete out of tune. I am so sorry for that. I´ll have another try with washed ears and get back on this later...
