You Complete the Lyrics

Here's something I have wanted to do for a long time. Write the first line, verse of a song and then let others complete. Let's see who wants to play along at home. Here's a verse and a chorus for a song I'm calling Novel Approach. Please add additional verses, bridge, etc. in the comments.

Verse 1
It’s a novel approach, but I’m tearing out the pages, from the story of my life
re-writing the endings, turning the phrases, under the microscope and under the knife
35 years in a circular narrative no suspense all soliloquized thoughts
born in the 70’s, of age in the 90’s, wasted away all the aughts

the chapters are all the same
characters are all that will change
page numbers slowly progress
it’s a novel approach at best

  1. I'm dog eared, so dog tired
    Began another chapter but found it too full of ire

    (half a verse. will try more later)
