Piece of cake/ Lyrics by Yuval Aviguy

Inspiration surrounds me
I'm fed with ideas.
Notes are sprouting
A concept is forming at ease

As the rhythm takes control
My song is breathing its spirit.
I'm out of lyrics but that's a piece of cake.

At first my head announces: “boy band song”
The MTV must play it all day long.
As the lyrics fly out through my pen
And merge in the sentence
I realize it doesn't really work.

When I write about love it is strange
My words seem so rough, they mustn't meet the page
It should have been a piece of cake
Let's try to work with someone else,

So I decide to get some help
from master of the lyrics, Ed
I ask him: “Please find words for this song?
I don't really mind the subject,
keep it simple, nothing big”
I know Ed well, He cant go wrong.

When his text reveals I realize the subject is too heavy.
The last line is asking:
"Will you die for us?"

When I pick words time begins to stretch
Rhymes are out of reach. Ideas are hard to catch.

The C part breaks in just on time
McCartney's used exact same structures
But, there's no hope, I need a break
Cause all I write is wrong and fake.

And I thought this would be a piece of cake.

My head is filled with nothing but despair.
I can't give up; I know I need to dare.

The fear is conquered.
My Shakespeare's pen revives the paper for ever.
And now I've got this silly song…

Finally it feels I did just fine.
Poet, I am not. But I can rhyme few lines.
This song is of a different kind
Not like the ones which blow your mind
But I'm sure that some identify with it.
