I had a pretty serious case of writer's block for most of 2017, so it was nice to be reminded how much an externally-imposed deadline can help with creativity.
I usually try to bring some semblance of a song idea into my studio space but had absolutely nothing today. Luckily, I came up with a decent bass line and was able to just come up with some words to sing over it.
I always forget just how little time FAWM leaves for things like programming synths or fiddling with recording equipment. Just need to remind myself that it's about the songwriting, not the production.
I think most people have an ex that they feel (or felt) this way about. I've had a few!
I feel strong
Stronger than ever
I have it together to be more than I’ve been before
I am whole
I’m light as a feather
I’m free to take on the world
I feel so much better
This is my manifesto
This is my declaration
I’m never going back to you
My will is my salvation
Freedom, my revelation
Now that our love is torn in two
The light fades
The coldness of winter
Blows through the trees and washes the old life away
The night falls
The moon rises upwards
And somehow I feel that its light is brighter than day
