Two Lives

It's funny how life works, isn't it?  One day you're just sitting there not knowing what to do and then a project slides its way into your head and you can't think of anything else.  This happened to me a while back when, after writing a couple of songs with my Facebook friend Anne, I had the odd notion that we should write a musical together.  Amazingly, Anne thought that it was a good idea and, in the past month or so, I have sent her about five or six sets of lyrics for her to write the music for.  I have to say that the first piece that Anne has worked on is really good and much better than I could have hoped for.

The story behind the musical, titled "Two Lives", is based on how Anne and I met up on Facebook through a group I set up and how we started this very productive song writing partnership.  Of course, I've only loosely based it on our story as I wanted something that will really be a dramatic and rather tragic piece with the odd touches of light-relief thrown in so that people aren't running from the venue trying to slit their wrists in an attempt to forget what they've just seen.

I don't know how long it's going to take to write but, hopefully, one day, you'll be able to see the completed musical on a stage near you.  If that ever happens, please remember that this is our first attempt at anything like this so go easy on us.  Of course, if you end up liking it, for heaven's sake let us know.
