Somehow this turned into a 2 hour skirmish for me. When I saw the prompt, I thought 80s minor chord synthpop. So I selected a sad key in autochords dot com, chose a struxxure with the fawm muse tools, then plugged this into band in a box. About an hour in, I realized I did not like the song very much. I did not felt like I'd said all I wanted to say in the first 2 verses, so I tried to play an ethereal guitar solo.
C'est la vie. Fawm and move on.
Dance with Sorrow
(c) Sean McGaughey February 6, 2021
When you dance with sorrow
your eyes are always closed
You try not to trod
On other dancer’s toes
But nobody knows.
Just when you thought you’d learned the steps they change them
Still You hold on to the patterns that you learned yesterday
It’s not like anybody is watching anyway
Maybe life’s great metaphor, isn’t a dance
People sleepwalking through day, swirling like ants
Paths crossing only by happenstance
Is anyone there?
They say we’re together all in the same boat
But you’re all adrift alone in the raging storm
