This is a sad little almost-acapella song, written as part of a challenge where the prompt was 'black and white'- i think the first part of the song is one idea and then i kind of jumped ship and went for something maybe more personal to me these days, -- maybe its related to the first idea, maybe not, not sure.
not sure what i think of it, didn't really have time to revise- and a quick iPhone recording here.
I saw the world once as black and white
Every reaction was fight or flight
A lot of bark, a little less bite
I’ve slowly changed my song
I still care but not at fever pitch
Every opponent ‘s not the wicked witch
Instead of tear apart I’d rather stitch
It all together and get along
I thought you’d be here all this time
I guess you always will be in my mind
That part of me, or is it you
What am I supposed to do?
Others have seen more thru thick and thin
Living with loss is where they’ve been
I’ve been lucky enough to usually win
But luck is bound to change
The tallest mountain starts to decay
Enter tomorrow exit today
The winds of fate blow come what may
And things go from normal to strange
