On the Verge of New Lyrics

On The Verge of New Lyrics
I've been feeling the song writing urge for a while but seem to lack inspiration when I sit down with my guitar to write a bit. So I decided to write a song about almost writing a song. I submit the lyrics in their current state for your reading enjoyment. To help the lyrics seem really creative, try imagining Tom Petty and Dave Mathews singing it as a duet. I'm pretty sure the two of them could make this song work. You might try squinting and nodding your head to increase the mood around these lyrics. Easy now.

Verge

I am on the verge of writing me a song
I am on the edge of some real poetic words
I can taste the mystery about to be made known
I am on the verge of something stirring in my soul

I can feel it round the corners of mind
Some intuition that it's all about to rise
Like water breaking forth from a barren ground
I am getting closer to hearing that sound

I am on the verge of loosing this fear
I am on the edge of almost liking it here
I am slowly moving from propaganda to art
I am on the verge of something waking in my heart

I can feel it round the corners of my soul
Some intuition that it's all about to flow
Like water breaking forth from a barren ground
I am getting closer to knowing what I've found

I am on the brink of letting this thing fly
I am so near to more than simply getting by
I can sense the mediocrity starting to subside
I am on the precipice of inspiration's tide

I can feel it round the corners of my heart
Some intuition that it's just about to start
Like water breaking forth from a barren ground
I am getting closer to hearing that sound
