This is the sixth song I wrote this month. It was so much fun to experiment vocally with scat, even if I am a total novice.
Well maybe I just made it up
But, it sure feels good to do something
Even if it's not enough.
Better than just giving up
Stop running from the things that scare me
and if I fail, I fail with love.
I could've been your Jazz singer
a virtuoso while you're eating your dinner
Could've been a winner, but I was
oh so scared to play
I'll find a way to let it all slide by
and move on with my life.
Well maybe its just too late
till don't it feel so good to do something
even if it's just to commiserate.
And if its all the same
Might as well pick this hill to die on
better to try and go down in flames.
I could've been your Jazz singer...
