       I was playing a song today on my guitar, and I got a vision of an adventure. The song is sort of laid back. I changed it a bit to fit the song. Tell me what you think. Tell me what I should fix. Song writing's something I've picked up lately, so any criticism is good. Its a light rock adventure tale/song.

    :Verse 1:
    I took a trip
    And I got lost
    Never left my companions
    But their lives it cost

    We found gold
    We found jewels
    Beauty beyond all imagintation
    But we were all fools

    One day I'll find, My way home
    But for now I'm left, all alone
    One day I'll find, my way home
    But for now I guess baby, I'll just roam...

    :Verse 2:
    We found the gold
    We shared it all
    We came to a cliff
    And I left her fall

    He led me up a creek
    And then he fell down
    At last she could have been my loyal queen
    But she could not wear the crown

    The jewels of the jungle
    The gold of the snake
    The rules of the curs I am under
    I cannot shake

    It's just me and my guitar
    And all this gold
    We found the world this day and its
    ALL MY OWN!!


    :Verse 3:
    I took a trip
    I got lost
    Never left my companions
    Their own lives they cost

    One day I'll find
    My way home
    And right I'm left
    All alone
    One day I'll find
    My way home
    But for now I guess baby,

    I'll just roam....

      I tried to sing it with different rock and metal rythms but everytime it seemed that as light as it was ment it didnt got.. should i say balls. It almost fitted with progressive rock riffs as i tested it, but keep in mind that a rock song needs some highlights and some lower sections. But the lyrics were good, maybe it will work in another genre than rock. Keep it going, that sounded nice even if i could not get it into rock.

      I think it's good except for the second stanza (i guess it's called that in songs too? i dunno) after verse 2 where it starts off 'he led me up a creek'... I just don't think that needs to be in it. Maybe try to fix up those few lines a bit. But I wish I could hear you playing guitar and singing this song, it would have a totally different appeal that way. Keep writing

      Mate, didn't you miss a chorus, after the bridge? And that's a LONG bridge alright...two stanzas of four verses, that's already a middle eight...if you also put a solo afterwards, half of your tune is gonna be a middle eight, which is quite abnormal for rock and/or pop or even metal.
    On the writing itself, I'll say that at some places it's too...classically...turned to fit a rock tune: "But their lives it did cost", for instance. It just doesn't fit a rock tune.
    Anyways, keep it up mate.
