Week 7

Week 7

This week was a bit of a mess. I worked on a different song for several days and ended up scrapping the whole thing on the last day and having to put this together in a few hours. I wasn’t starting from scratch, though … this song has been bumping around my head for some time, but I could never figure out (ha!) what to do with it. I took the opportunity to use pressure as a motivating factor to finish it up once and for all.

I made this random video (white people dancing!) from some films I found at the Prelinger Archives.

I hope you dig it but, if it’s not your thing, don’t worry about my love - you’ll have that always and forever. <3

FIGURE IT OUT

My pretty ditty pits its 
Petulant intents against 
The sense my friends are fences 
I must try to ascend 

I dreamed a different scene 
The grass was greener 
I could glean a new crew 
One that would skew to 
Venues i don't do 

And for the first time in my life 
I’ll sing about the last time 
In my life 

I’ll never figure it out 
Oh my God
I’ll never figure it out 

The Michiganders 
Set the standard 
I got gerrymandered 
My head was redistricted 
My heart was unbound 

I flew the coop, regrouped 
And discharged all my troops 
I scooped good views 
And dirtied shoes 
Now i avoid my old town 

And for the last time in my life 
I’ll sing about the first time 
In my life 

I’ll never figure it out
Oh my God 
I’ll never figure it out 

For the first time in my life 
I felt justified
To harmonize 

For the first time in my life 
I started writing songs  and making music 
That I actually kinda liked to listen to 

And I was like 
Oh My God 

I think I figured it out 
I think I figured it out
