In for UK midnight, woooooop!
Started writing this song in the summer of last year when I was suffering with depression and it’s about how awful I felt making others have to be around me when I was feeling so low. At a similar time, I watched the film ‘Nocturnal Animals’ and Amy Adams character just resonated with me deeply at the time so I thought I’d tack on some nocturnal animal references!
Sorry if it’s recorded wrong, all I got is an iPad and I DONT KNOW WHAT IM DOING! 😬
Outtake at the end.. I recorded it all the way though and almost made it to the f chord in time in a few instances but then at the end I realised I hadn’t even plugged my earphones/mic into my iPad so hadn’t recorded a sodding thing😂
And it’s proving hard to find, any sort of compromise
It makes me want to run for miles away
But I’m sorry that I’m not happy, forgive me and let me go
Guilt stricken for wanting more, I’ll check my privilege at my door, it’s enough for you but not for me
I’m sorry that I’m not happy, forgive me and let me go
So I’ll beat myself up and I’ll tie myself down
Behave like a good girl and I won’t mess around
Happily ever after isn’t that what they say?
Well it’s a damn lie that can you can go your own way.
I’m a nocturnal animal, should my punishment be capital? What gave me the right to feel this way?
So sorry, that I’m not happy, forgive me and let me go.
