I'm a lyricist looking for musicians to write music to my lyrics.

Description:
I'm a lyricist and have collaborated with musicians to create quite a few pretty decent songs. I like ballads, soft rock, country and comedy songs. I was lucky enough to live my teens in the 70s (some say I'm still there) so I've been inspired by Billy Joel, The Eagles, America, John Lennon (all the Beatles stuff actually) etc. I'm no musician but I do create tunes in my head for the lyrics that I write and I enjoy the challenge of putting lyrics to musicians' tunes. I also love writing parodies and have had a few recorded by radio stations and played on air.

Dreams and ambitions:
I'd love to create songs with a like-minded songwriter. Someone who can benefit from my lyrics like I would benefit from their musical prowess. If I could one day hear one of my songs on the radio, I'd die a happy man :)

Sample lyrics:


EASY FOR YOU – Lyrics by Allan West

You sit there
With your fake blonde hair
And your Marie Clare
And you just don’t care
For me

You drive away
Every single day
In your Chevrolet
And do a spot on Pay 
TV

You say I’m always gonna be the one
But you’re the one who’s always out there havin’ fun
You say we’ve gotta trust each other every day
Well listen when I tell you honey 
That’s easy for you to sayyyy, yeah
That’s easy for you to say

You look so nice
When you roll that dice
‘n’ cool your lips with ice
But you’ll pay the price
One day

Who’s gonna know you when the chips are down?
Who’s gonna be around?
When some new kid in town
Starts to play

You say I’m always gonna be the one
But you’re the one who’s always out there havin’ fun
You say we’ve gotta trust each other every day
Well listen when I tell you honey 
That’s easy for you to sayyyy, yeah
That’s easy for you to say

BRIDGE
In front of that lens
There are no split ends
You’ve got a fear you disguise
With your contact blue eyes
Is that really you
Or the autocue
Tellin’ me of poverty in Kathmandu?


You trip the light
Every single night
With the erudite 
But there’s a morning’ sight
They don’t see

Who makes you coffee for your throbbin’ head?
When you’re feelin’ dead?
Who keeps you warm in bed?
That is me

I realise they’re tearin’ you away
You’re gonna up and leave me in your Chevrolet
But when you whisper to me in that special way
‘Tell me that you love me, honey!’
That’s easy for me to sayyyy, yeah
That’s easy for me to say.
