Speaking so soft with a voice so small.
Stumbling over words, making no sense at all.
I try to express what's on my mind
But my brain and mouth are not on time
I wish I can easily say what's in my heart
But my words always seem to fall apart

Seems so silly to keep something I hardly use
Seems so silly, it's gonna turn into a rusty tool
I should just cut the cord and give it away
But  there's so much I wish to I could say

I wish I could explain why I feel blue
I wish I could express how I feel towards you
Sometimes I do but my words fall on deaf ears
I wish with you I could share my dreams and fears

Seems just so silly to keep what I hardly use
Seems so silly to keep this rusty tool
I should just cut this cord and throw it away
But theres just so much I long to say

Seems so silly, just darn right silly to  keep what I don't use
Seems so silly, my voice is a rusted tool
I just want to cut the cord and throw it away
But theres just so much I long for all to hear me say
Not perfect, only the second song I ever wrote but it comes from the heart


Edit: changed the first line of the song.
went from "voice so soft as if speaking through walls" to "Speaking so softly with a voice so small." Better flow to it yes?

There's a book I think you might like to read about creativity called "Imagine: How Creativity Works" by Jonah Lehrer. It's on amazon: [link] I think you would find it very interesting, helpful and very insightful into helping you develop your own creativity and working habits. It's based on up to date science and is pretty funny in some places.

Nice...how did my song about longing to be heard make you think of that? XD

Well the process of song writing can be a long and painful one, with constant reworking of a few lines just to make it sound better or flow better with the notes, etc. The book talks about this process with references to great poets and Jon Lenin, and of how writing songs and poetry is a very different form of creativity from say, envisioning something and then drawing it. I think that if you had some more knowledge about how thoughts, moods and activities all influence creativity that you would be better able to express yourself in the way that you envision in your mind. This song is about expressing yourself, and it reminded me about one of the paragraphs about how we can go through a period of mood swings that directly influence the creativity of your mind. The feelings of uncertainty, and worry about expressing oneself are a normal part of the creative process and are actually necessary in developing new ideas.

Well part of the problem is that the way they have been teaching us in school has been wrong. Lecture is one of the least efficient methods of teaching, focusing on memorization kills creativity and strict schedules/group working may increase chances of you getting more done, but the quality is always worse than if you had been given the chance to be yourself more often.

I zone out during lectures. I better if I see what you are talking about and can work with my hands. Plus I think I have ADD(have yet to get tested for it but I have a lot of the tall tell signs apperently.)

Interactive teaching methods usually work the best. Well, apparently people with certain disorders, like ADD, ADHD, depression and manic-depressive disorder(bi polar) are more likely to be more creative than those who are "normal." Though, I happen to believe it's probably normal to have any number of disorders, we just didn't have clinical terms for them years ago or analyzed ourselves/society as critically.
