Writer of Song: A Song

Written and Performed by: Abby Berman

Recorded by: Gabe Dulek

 

I met a man

On the train yesterday

He told me he was married

But we could talk just the same

Was on his way back home

To see his lovely wife

He told me of his travels

He told me of his life

Then he said “Hey Sister,

What you plan to do?

Your life is just beginning

Your childhood finally through.”

And I just said “Well Mister

Anything else would be wrong

I want to be a writer of song.”

 

Well that’s beautiful through and through

And there’s nothing else that I could ever do

Than be a speaker of dreams and truth

A writer of song

 

So I will take this harmony

And I will take the tune

And I will show the world

What a melody can do

These words they will have meaning

And their truth will be said strong

When I become my writer of song

 

Well that’s beautiful through and through

And there’s nothing else that I could ever do

Than be a speaker of dreams and truth

A writer of song

 

So I will taste this sunset

And speak the broken earth

While I relive this beauty

At its humble birth

This moment not forgotten

It will live forever long

Sheltered by this writer of song

 

Well that’s beautiful through and through

And there’s nothing else that I could ever do

Than be a speaker of dreams and truth

A writer of song

 

These words they will have meaning

And their truth will be said strong

When I become my writer of song

 

(**I wrote this song quite a while ago, and decided to rerecord it recently. It really was written on a train about a month before I graduated high school. )
