Lyrics

Chelsea

(verse 1)
I placed the flowers on her grave
Hung my head and cried
Of all the soldiers in the world
My own daughter Chelsea died
She raised her hand
And took that oath
Forever honor-bound
Now her soul has soared to Heaven
As of yet no peace I've found

(verse 2)
In a space of only 20 years
From crib to Kevlar Vest
A fairy princess at her prom
But she wasn't like the rest
I'm wishing that i could undo
The thing that took your life
You'll always be my daughter
No one's mother----no one's wife

(chorus)
Chelsea eat your spinach
Finish all your chores
Chelsea eat your spinach
Before you march on off to war

(verse 3)
One summer she built a treehouse
And she wouldn't let me help
Hit her finger with a hammer
But you didn't hear her yelp
It seems she went from Sunday School
To marching left right left
Now she's wrapped up in a flag
Seems her life was so compressed

(chorus)
Chelsea eat your spinach
Finish all your chores
Chelsea eat your spinach
Before you march on off to war

(bridge)
Life is filled
With lots of twists and turns
One house stands
While the other one burns

(verse 4)
Dreams always come pre-broken
Some assembly is required
My dream to see you happy
Was deleted----has expired
Your life is like a video
That plays inside my head
"I'll be alright, Daddy"
Haunts me every night in bed

(chorus)
Oh, Chelsea eat your spinach
Finish all your chores
Chelsea eat your spinach
Before you march on off to war

I'm again impressed with your song lyric writing in this case. Please consider marketing this lament to someplace it would be appreciated. I believe by marketing a true lament of love of a father about his daughter who has passed would be accepted actually anywhere. It brought me to tears each and every time I listened repeatedly but that's because I'm the daughter of two former military as well as sister of an older brother who all are gone now and served in the USA military too. Now again please continue writing and the instrumentation of this can always be changed but as I heard here it's ok for demo marketing to an artist that can deliver the message so thoughtfully composed. Thank you and waiting to hear your next submission to BJ pro reviews since I'm honored to review your work in all types of genera.
