Ha, that's a very nice concept, and I've got to admit it's well executed --- twice. Very nice work, both of you. Here's my shot at trying to picture what the title track from Erika's CD is like. I feel horrible about messing up with one of my all time David Bowie favorites, but the concept seemed to fit.

Broken Bird
Based on: Starman by David Bowie

Just another morning here in Tokyo (oh-oh)
The sky's so high, while the street's so low (oh-oh)
The noise engross's me, I can't hear my self (can't hear what I
say)
Then the loud sounds did seem to fade (a-ade)
And grew so distant inside my head (a-ead)
There were no city inside my mind anymore

CHORUS:
There's a broken bird up in the sky
It'd like to roam so freely
But its wings won't let it fly
There's a broken bird inside my heart
It'd like to sing so freely
But it just lets out a sigh
It told me:
Let your mind go, baby
Let your heart go, baby
And let the melody come out

And then as quickly I was here once more (o-ore)
Like a cast away thrown back on shore (o-ore)
Walking the pavement of the street I walked just before
But through the crowd I can still see the light (igh-ight)
As it fades slowly and moves out of sight (igh-ight)
Rises to the sky and spreads its wings in flight

CHORUS

CHORUS

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
