CALLUM MCINTYRE
Songwriter Feature - November 2020

I am singer songwriter who specializes in piano and voice. My songs are often lyric driven, mellow and emotive. I have been influenced by classic singer-songwriters such as Billy Joel, Nina Simone and Tom Waits, as well as newer artists such as Tom Odell, Bruno Major and Adele. I always turn to music and songwriting as a vehicle and expression of painful and often hard to articulate emotions. Working through certain feelings through song has always been very therapeutic for me!

FEATURED SONGS

Song26 Lyrics

Smoke the cigarettes down to the bitter ends,

Moderate the way you dress to impress your best friends friends

Feel your blood run cold as you take a joke too far.

You sit and wonder who you are!


Pretend to them you like the skin you're in,

Sit in the corner and smile and have another gin and slim

You can see them making eyes like who the hell did we invite,

Your best friend smiles, and it's alright.


And you second guess your worthiness, how you'll never be enough

And you fill your head with the words they said, instead of call them on their bluff,

You construct a life of loneliness where everything goes wrong,

Instead of fighting the fight you write a song!


And it goes on and on and on and on and on

On and on and on and on and on

 

I'm down on my Luck and work is thin again,

I guess I could just give up but what the hell would I do then,

Just live to survive and I could work the nine til five,

I've got the dream but not the drive.


And I feel the palpitations like a dagger in my breast!

Simple conversations start to feel a god damn test

And you look at your foundations they don't seem to feel as strong

Instead of putting it right you write a song


And you second guess your worthiness, no I'll never be enough

When you fill your head with the words they said, instead of call them on their bluff,

And you construct a life of loneliness where everything goes wrong,

Instead of fighting the fight you write a song!


And it goes on and on and on and on and on

On and on and on and on and on

On and on and on and on and on

On and on and on and on and on

GENERIC LOVE SONG Lyrics

I sat down to write a love song,

But there was no one on my mind

I have chased, I have tried, but I’m better at saying goodbye,

Why is love so hard to find?


I’ve been down this troubled road,

One too many times,

But now you’re here before me and I get nothing by your side.


CHORUS

And I've been waiting for so long,

For the right girl to come along.

And I will sing this generic love song til I find you, til I find you!


Well I’ve been thinking about you,

The kind of girl that you might be

I guess my one requirement baby,

Is that I love you and you love me.


CHORUS

And I've been waiting for so long,

For the right girl to come along.

So I will sing this generic love song til I find you, til I find you!

 

They say I should compromise,

But I’m still out chasing those butterflies

No baby don’t ask me twice,

Cause I just won’t stop til I feel I can say

This is love, real love.


CHORUS

And I've been waiting for so long,

For the right girl to come along.

So I will sing this generic love song til I find you, til I find you!

WAITING Lyrics

Perhaps I've put my faith in fate,

Tell me I'm a fool to wait,

Even though it's getting late I'll state it 'cause it's true.


There may be lover's come and go,

A dozen girls that you don't know,

But I love you and I've told you so; I'm waiting here for you.

 

I've done foolish things to pass the time in the hope I'd cast you from my mind,

But in quiet moments still I find your pretty face come through.

I could fake a smile and have a ball, I'm waiting here for you to call,

And say you put my love above it all, I'm waiting here for you!


You told me you had oats to sow,

A million places you might go

and all to have the chance to grow, I did what I could do


I hope for you you find success,

Express the things left unexpressed

And when you've landed from your cosmic quest I'm waiting here for you!


I know in time we'll both move on, I'll comprehend that you have gone

And someone else will come along that loves me through and through.

If you remember all the days I took your hand and held your gaze,

Allow me to repeat the phrase; I'm waiting here for you!


You can call my name if you find your feelings change,

I can't promise you I will feel the same.

Please don't say it's all for nothing, 'cause I'm still waiting here for something... something!


If you remember all the days I took your hand and held your gaze,

Allow me to repeat the phrase; I'm waiting here for you!
