    Smile - Help me out -

    Hi..

    Would you help me out with a few sentences? Are they correct (+dated)?

    "Dressed in old, torn chlothing"

    "He stands alone as it keeps raining"

    "I aks of you to try"

    "face-first" or "face first"?

    "(1) face-first/ face first (2) into/ to the wind"
    ---> into the wind or to the wind?

    "Solitude is clenched in our fist OR in our fists."

    "A thousand words still left unspoken" OR "A thousand words left unspoken"
    ---> which one do you prefere..?

    .. It's for my song. I could send you the complete version of the song, i.e. if you want to.. : )

    Thanks sooooooooo much !!

    "Dressed in old, torn chlothing"- clothing- correct apart from the spelling, but not a complete sentence grammatically

    "He stands alone as it keeps raining" Yes

    "I aks of you to try" I would say 'I ask you to try' or 'All I ask of you is to try'

    "face-first" or "face first"?

    "(1) face-first/ face first (2) into/ to the wind"
    ---> into the wind or to the wind?

    You'll see it used with and without the hyphen. I can't say whether 'into' or 'to' is better. If the person is moving or looking then I'd use 'into'.

    "Solitude is clenched in our fist OR in our fists." The plural makes more sense- more than one person, more than one fist.

    "A thousand words still left unspoken" OR "A thousand words left unspoken"
    ---> which one do you prefere..?
    It depends on the context of the song- if the words should have been said a long time ago, then use 'still', but if they refer to the situation at present only, then don't.
