  • Songbay provide a unique service. There is nothing else on the market that allows independent songwriters and lyricists to sell their work in this way. The Songbay team are very supportive or their artists. They regularly promote their users on Twitter and often retweet promotional tweets posted by artists. The Songbay team are also easy to contact and happy to help with any problems or questions via email or Twitter. I was also invited to write an article for Songbay's blog, which led to paid teaching work

So Sensational


    By Jisael, o Portimoteco
    Eu Vejo teus olhos no brilho do sol
    Sinto o teu toque na chuva que cai
    Ouço tua voz no sopro do vento
    Cheiro na brisa do mar teu perfume.
    Teu coração é d'outro alguém
    Não sabes nem sentes a dor
    Sei que virás nos meus pensamentos
    Me acalmarás nas noites frias.
    Os sonhos me trazem teu belo sorriso
    E o c...

  • |evacuate|

    By James Lloyd
    Sometimes, thinking about it is a waste of time
    Praying that you're never gonna lose your mind
    Forever and ever watching days go by
    Are you aware that your soul has died?
    Feeling so empty and cold inside
    Surrounded by your demons as the dark turns to light
    You're so far away you've been consumed by the night
    But giving up on t...

    Verse one
    I've got a message for you
    Let me take you to a dream
    And if you believe
    Just let time see
    That the life you live
    Is all in what you give
    What you make it
    Just don't doubt it
    This is my message to you
    Make it happen
    Let your wildest dreams come true
    Hey you

  • Trigger

    By Garen Fountain
    Perfect shot
    In the dark
    Right to the heart
    I can survive
    Time to be smart
    But it’s like my mind
    Blew a fuse
    I’ve lost my spark

    Speak your mind
    I trigger the all shit
    You’re repressing
    Shooting blanks all over the place
    Just disgusting

    The light in your eyes changed over time

    By Doug Haberman
    Chasing Your Ghost (revised version)
    Lyrics by Doug Haberman

    Verse 1
    You asked me to call you Bogie
    Said you’d worked on a movie or two
    You didn’t quite look like a leading man
    But I really fell for you
    When you talked your lips barely moved
    A cigarette dangled there
    Your smile curled like a scowl
    You walked as if g...
