I Had A Flat Today

So my car broke down a few days ago and I thought it would only be fit to write a little tribute.

This is the original copy of the song, re-written by me and me only.
Please sing in melody of "I Want It That Way":

You are my tire
Punctured, on fire
I threw you away
'Cause I had a flat today.

But we got on the road
To go get a load
Of things for my birthday
But I had a flat today.

Tell me why?
Ain't nothin' but a spike strip
Tell me why?
Ain't nothin' but a bad trip
Tell my why?
I never go that way
'Cause I had a flat today.

I am your driver
I set you on fire
Yes I know it's too late
'Cause I had a flat today.

Tell me why?
Ain't nothin' but the dumpyard
Tell me why?
Ain't nothin' but an old car
Tell me why?
I only wanna burn you away
'Cause I had a flat today.

Now I can see that your falling apart
From the way that you used to be, my car
No matter the distance I want you to go
You're going to breakdown on me

"You are now fired"
I punctured my tire
You are, you are, you are, you are...

Tell me why?
Ain't nothin' but a bad road
Tell me why?
Ain't nothin' but a wide-load
Tell me why?
I'm so glad that you broke down today
'Cause I crashed you anyway
'Cause I crashed you anyway...

Thank you.

The Tangent.

"The tangent line (or simply the tangent) to a curve at a given point is the straight line that just touches the curve at that point. As it passes through the point where the tangent line and the curve meet, or the point of tangency, the tangent line is going in the same direction as the curve, and in this sense it is the best straight-line approximation to the curve at that point."


Somewhere along the line
That is tangent to you
I see a little space for me

Should I go in?
I wonder what I’ll see
If I walk into you

Just ahead there’s a spot
A place for my entry
Upon this line

On tip-toes, I see
How you welcome me
To notice you

And my math tells me
Everything will be fine
Just as long as I walk
As long as I stay
On your tangent line.

As of October 2011

A small update on my life:
I'm now on my own again, a free bird, and an even better freelance writer than before. Yes, it's possible.

My time as the Editor for an online magazine was quite exciting, actually, and it's a shame I had to quit, but we all have to move on at some point right?

Anyway, the point here is I had been updating a story every week on the Emaho Magazine website.
It was pretty much my baby, and I'm quite pleased with some of it. I do wish I had more time to work on it and make the story really go somewhere, but I guess I'll just have to write a better story instead!

Please, if you have time, go through the few chapters I've written that are up on the site.
All of the chapters, including the Prologue, have been written by me; ignore the incorrect author tag.

Here's the link:

Thanks a lot, and if you've got some extra time, I've also been doing a bunch of interviews, so don't miss those either.
Contact me here if you like the work :) Feedback is always appreciated.

Cheers!
