Description
The term "Helpless Romantic" is used too frequently in American vocabulary. Being a musician, it often feels as if the things that I sing about are helping mostly others, and not myself. Maybe I won't find love, wealth, power, and maybe I won't change the world. But I like to think I'm helping others to do so.

Lyrics
If I sing a song about love
Will I find it?
If I sing a song about politics
Will I change them?
If words are my ammunition
I've got the power of ten tanks
The world or my life never change
It seems that I'm shooting blanks

I'm building bridges to nowhere
Crossing lines in the sand
I'm writing songs for no one
Fooling everyone with slight of hand
'Cause I'm a helpful romantic
It's all I'll ever be
'Cause I'm a helpful romantic
I'm always in the right key

If I give you a reason to think
Would you take it?
If I give you and emotion to feel
Would you fake it?
I sing with all my heart
But still I have nothing to show
I write to uplift your spirits
While mine get desperately low

I'm building bridges to nowhere
Crossing lines in the sand
Explaining my deepest thoughts
Even though I don't understand
'Cause I'm a helpful romantic
It's all I'll ever be
'Cause I'm a helpful romantic
I'm always in the right key

Another record, another day
Another time, another place
Another record, another day
Another line, another face

My gift is a melody
I'm coaching you on what to say
Leading you to the light even though
I don't know the way
'Cause I'm a helpful romantic
It's all I'll ever be
'Cause I'm a helpful romantic
I'm always in the wrong key

this song reminds me of The Romantics, my impression is that you love making music, I like the energy, needs polishing, especially if you're going to double the vocal in a very rhythmic staccato style vocal it has to line up, that being said, I think you have tons of potential. Jd.
