Just found the time to squeeze in one more.
I picked up my guitar (dropped D tuning) before going to work yesterday and these chords/picking/melody came forth. I recorded a quick sketch on my iPhone then wrote the lyrics on the way to and at work. I recorded it yesterday evening but then added a middle eight bit. I wrote and recorded those extra vocals early this morning.
I’ve been searching the memories I have of you
But I can’t tell between what’s real and what’s untrue
If I can’t rely on the past
Have I reached the edge of confusion at last?
I can dig in the quiet earth of this hemisphere
Looking for something lost, no longer there
I don’t know what I’m hoping to find
When I can’t even suffer my own state of mind
Delving under the turf and stones
I find peace here amongst the bones
It wasn’t your kind of comfort zone
It wasn’t your field of dreams
I approach every open door with a wary heart
And avoid all those awkward silences of ours
At the end of a starless night
I’ve no more patience - I’m restless for the light
