So this week I will be starting to upload my music and songs onto youtube. I am more nervous than a sinner on judgment day so I would like everyone's honest opinion on the first original song I will be uploading. Here are the lyrics. Please give me your honest opinion.

Verse 1

Well it started like any day.
I just hoped that the day would be okay.
Little did I know that everything would change.
My world would get rearranged.
I want to tell you now.
In case you wondered how.

Chorus 1

About how you had me at first glance.
I got caught in your trance.
You had a hold on my heart.
I didn't want us to ever be apart.
I told you every day.
That I wanted you to stay.
We started with a clean slate.
Filled it full of dates.

Verse 2

I tried to fill your life with happiness.
After all you gave my life so much bliss.
I cried tears of joy when you said yes.
Now I can't wait to see you in your dress.
As I sit here and right my vows.
I take a chance to remember how.

Chorus 2

You had me at first glance.
How I convinced you to take a chance.
I thanked the good stars above.
That you were also looking for love.
I couldn't believe my eyes.
When a girl like you didn't have a guy.
My feelings for you grew stronger and stronger.
I found myself talking about you longer and longer.

Verse 3

Now I stand here waiting for you.
My heart is raising till I get to say I do.
Nothing could have compared.
To this story that we shared.
All I can think about now.
Is the story about how.

Chorus 3

This all started from a glance.
About how it started all of this romance.
About how I love you being in my life.
About how you make a beautiful wife.
About how this all began.
About how I love to be your man.
About how I look a chance.
By falling for you at first glance.

Outro

(continued guitar as it slowly gets quieter and fades away)

At first glance.

(fade to black)

niceness. As there's no way for us to know how the rhythm and tempo of the lyrics are, for chorus 2 "my feelings for you.... i found myself talking about you" the "talking about" sounds slightly off and changing it to "thinking of" might sound nicer since "stronger, found, of, and longer" all have a softer sound to them than talking about; but that depends pretty heavily on the rhythm and tempo of the song. The only other thing is the chorus 3 with the number of about hows since after about 3-4 that could get to be seeming too repetitive; although, you could do something interesting with the rhyme scheme on the last chorus since that seems to be driving the "from a glance" thing where you have it as an AA,BB,CC,AA (3rd chorus only) you could throw in a line that changes it up a bit with the about hows and adds a little rhymy connection to the glance.
Like so: Aa,BB,A,CC,aA (little a represents the about how lines that rhyme with glance)

I'm kind of assuming here that the name of the song is "From a Glance" or something like that, well done lyrics and yeah keep doing good.

I'm not a music guy so I can't give your criticism like Bel can but I can suggest that when you upload the video, keep it on private for a few days and post it here. That way you have a test audience before it goes public.

I meant thinking. Where did talking come from in the second chorus?! Stupid brain. Also thanks for the help :D Plus the third chorus is gradually getting slower as it is basically the end of the song. Although I like your ideas.
