I found that at first glance, none of the titles, themes or opening lines that I came up with inspired me.  For some reason, another title popped into my head "In A Perfect World" (which I'm going to swap with "A Seed In The Wind").  A song came together quickly after that.  Here's the lyrics;

 

In a perfect world,

Things would be so easy,

I wouldn't have to struggle any more.

Money would be as free as breathing

But in a perfect world,

Could I love you more?

 

In a perfect world,

There would be no evil.

No reasons for us to go to war.

No man's fist, raised 'gainst another.

But in a perfect world,

Could I love you more?

 

In a perfect world,

Everyone is friendly,

It's a place where no one ever locks the door

We would take only what we need

But in a perfect world,

Could I love you more?

 

Our love has built a bond between us,

With every hardship faced along the way,

That's getting stronger every day.

 

In a perfect world,

We wouldn't have to worry,

What the years ahead of us have in store.

All our plans would come together

But in a perfect world,

Could I love you more?

 

Now I've realized that I've rhymed 'more' with 'more' in the 1st verse (which is unfortunate, but I don't want to keep that).  Also, I think I have one verse too many.  The easiest path for me to take is to just drop the 1st verse, and then I've resolved both issues!

 

I decided to write this on guitar and came up with a pleasant melody.  Hopefully I'll be able to make some sort of recording of this prior to this coming Monday's deadline.
