Don't worry if people tell you there's a grammatical error or an invented word. You can do that in English. It's called "poetic licence". My husband (British) does it all the time in his songs. With him it's deliberate - and done for many different reasons. When he wrote a couple in French some people did object to him taking liberties with the language, but maybe that was just because he isn't a native speaker of "their" language icon_smile.gif . On the other hand, some things just don't work. It has to "scan" right (not sure if that's the correct word) and if things are supposed to rhyme then they really must - no almosts allowed!

If you are english native speaker and wanna help me with it, please message me.

Feel free to send them to me if you like, for what it's worth.
