#TheScriptChallenge: No Words #10daysOfMark

Since it’s now only 10 days until Mark’s birthday I’ve chosen a song for this week that’s so him, it could be his hymn. Not because he doesn’t have words in the literal sense but because he has more than he needs!

The melody is based on an old banshee shriek that is thought to be Ireland’s first ever field recorded music and as usual the words (pardon the pun) get an additional meaning with the music. ‘Cause let’s face it, the best moments in life are beyond words.

To celebrate Mark’s upcoming birthday, the next 10 days will be dedicated to our awesome ginge. Join using the #10daysOfMark on twitter! 🙂

Lyrics

I could talk all day long about the news,
Giving you the current affairs and my views
I could talk all night long about a song,
Giving you the pointers on where you’re going wrong.

I could talk all year long about the net
And sending you the links I think you haven’t seen yet.
I’d like to tell you things that I think you never heard, but there are no words

I could talk all day long about dreams,
Sewing up your heart so you never see a seam.
I could talk all day about politics,
All of the corruption, clean hands, dirty tricks

But what can I say
About something that blows me away
Without it soundin’ like another cliché?
From what I’ve seen and I’ve heard,
When it comes to you, baby, no, there are no, there are no words.

There are no words,
Yeah, I swear this much is true,
There ain’t a word in this world that describes you

I could talk all day long about life,
After so many wars, how we’re all still alive.
I could speak all night long about the world,
How it took me thirty years just to find one girl.

I could shoot shit for days all about guitars,
A Gibson or a Fender, it depends on who you are.
But when I try to say something that you never heard,
There are no words

I could burn your ear off all about space,
Why we have a moon, why the moon has a face.
If the earth is spinning, why we all stay in place?
Why we can’t walk it’s gotta be a space race.

But what can I say,
That’s gonna’ blow her mind away,
Tryna write a classic not a throw away.
All I’ve seen, all I’ve heard,
When it comes to you, there are no, there are no, there are no words, no words.

There are no words.
Yeah, I swear this much is true
There ain’t a word in this world that describe you, that describe you.

Yeah, I swear this much is true
There ain’t a word in this world that describes you.

No words.

There are no words to describe or define
What’s inside you, your feeling, your vibe
Believe me I’ve tried to break you down to a science
I see you in my mind and I open my mouth and it’s silence
I can articulate a Shakespeare poem
Even though I didn’t know him
I can see where he was going
And where he’s coming from
I can even catch his flow
And then I think of you
I don’t know where this metaphor is going

‘Cause there are no words you can understand, only lovers can
You can ask the professor and the madman
If they couldn’t find the words, no one can
All I’ve seen, all I heard
When it comes to you there’s just no, just no words

(Just no words, no words)

Yeah, I swear this much is true,
There are no word in this world that describes you, that describes you.

Yeah, I swear this much is true,
There are no word in this world that describes you.

There are no…
There are no…

The challenge

“‘Cause there are no words you can understand, only lovers can”

For better or worse, I love words more than an average person but even I admit: love is bigger than words, it can only be understood in the silent melody of a look, a gesture, a touch. Sometimes the best moments pale when we try to stick labels on them.

Make sure you include the quote somewhere (anywhere) in your creation.

For example:

  • an edit with that line
  • you singing the song (cover)
  • draw something that reflects the quote and include it in the caption
  • write a short story that includes that line
  • etc.

Have a look at first week’s submissions if you need some ideas.

Guidelines

When I say “creation”, I use it in the widest of sense: it can be a drawing, painting, montage, photograph, digital or manual art, edits, videos, gifs, short stories, poems, real life stories, blog posts, music and anything else you can think of when you say art. Don’t limit yourself with the format.

Please include the line of the week in your art. It doesn’t have to be featured as the main piece but it has to be included at least in the caption.

Only submissions sent until midnight Dublin time on Saturday will be included in the challenge.

You’ve probably noticed, I really like hashtags, so please humour me and use the hashtag (#TheScriptChallenge) when you share your art on social media.  🙂

You don’t have to do it every week: you can join whenever you feel like it. No excuse not to do it, really! The more you practice art the better so to help that along there are special prizes for the “frequent fliers”  🙂

Any questions, let me know.

Love,

Andrea
