  10. I’m good with a melody and not so much with lyrics. First timer here too and I think I broke the rules on the first line! Oops! Here are my two attempts. Cheers!

    Their New year’s kiss
    She wished to retract
    As soon as it was given
    Impulsive, jealous motivation
    It was not that she was driven

    Their New Years Kiss felt lacking
    As soon as it was wasted
    Neither one embracing it
    So bittersweet it tasted
