If you have 5 minutes to listen to a song, this is what you should hear. It needs to be heard. Especially by musicians.
Macklemore and ryan lewis - Otherside
I wrote most of this out on a ride from my buddies house to McDonald’s and back. I was alone, and this is my song about being alone, wishing anyone would want to be with me. Some story I made up too, with a made up girl, because I’m cool and am allowed to write whatever the fuck I want.
c b c g fingerpicking alternate with g chord finger picking pattern
The fixtures on the wall hang ever so right
they frame the essence of a girl with a smile so bright
she’d blind a whole heard of cat-calling cattle brained men
with just the flick of her wrist and
a little slight of hand
She brought me up to the roof
under stars in the dark
And we started to talk and I played my part
we started shedding our clothes
we started shedding our lies
and what I remember most
is my hand on her thigh
I forgot what it felt like
to be alone
But love, when you’re with me
It feels like home
and I’m not scared
to be alone
But it’s too late
for you to drive home
and I snap back to my room and roll over in bed
I start to talk to myself just to prove I’m not dead
and take some comfort in knowing that fantasy was still clear
and the touch of her skin still felt so near
what I want to hear,
just tell me you’ll stay.
Just say that you need me
and not regret it a day
(another chorus stanza)
so by the light of my phone…
so that’s all I have so far, but it has a nice melody. I might replace a racey line or two in there if I decide tomorrow.
A cover I played in my passenger seat before the big basketball game. It was damp and cold outside, it just felt like a good time to slide over and play some music. Recorded this once on my iPhone, haven’t listened to it at all (as always) and I certainly hope I’m not making a complete fool of myself. I cannot sing and play for the life of me.
Let me reiterate;
I AM A SINGER IN A BAND
I am still a singer ^
I AM NOT THE GUITARIST IN SAID BAND
** ^ Still not the guitarist.
I would much rather be able to focus entirely on singing so I don’t sound bad
In case you can’t tell, I am very sensitive in regards to my music.
The song is Yellow Cat (slash) Red Cat, by my favorite band Say Anything.
