7.09: Song Lyrics

For this activity, your task is to give a Final Fantasy song of your choice lyrics! They can be serious lyrics or you can go the Brentalfloss parody direction. If you have a song and lyric style in mind, go for it! Otherwise, there will be a suggestion/requests thread to give you some ideas of songs that might work well with lyrics.

You get 20 points per stanza for up to two stanzas -- you can write two stanzas for a single song or write a single stanza for two songs. What counts as a stanza is usually about four lines of lyrics. Taking Blinded by Light as an example:

Section A lasts from about 0:11 to 0:33 and repeats again until about 0:55 (two stanzas)
Section B then picks up from 0:58 to 1:30 (could be one or two stanzas)

Basically, if the same melody line repeats exactly, each time it repeats will count as a separate stanza. Lyric writing is kind of hard, so I'm going to be lenient about what counts.

DEADLINE: Sunday June 8 @ 11:59P EDT (3:59AM GMT)
POINTS: 20 points for writing for writing a stanza of lyrics, up to 40 points; 5 points for requesting songs, up to 10 points
