Here is an original song Beez and I wrote with two friends of our, Mike and Bob of Shapes & Colors. I’m posting it here because it is for an untitled project separate from Carts Before Horses. I am so excited to share it (even though the quality isn’t the greatest and my voice was a little weak due to nerves…)
We hope you enjoy it!
Silence in the Library (working title)
Keep yourself busy, tell yourself lies-
Justify everything in your own mind.
You said “forever” in prelude to “goodbye.”
You had your reasons,
And now, I have mine.
Reason to be bitter, reason to move on,
Reason to believe that you’ll regret that I’m gone.
You couldn’t stay here and now, I know why-
I couldn’t see her in the back of your mind.
The lies and the cruelty you swear were not there-
You claimed it was for my sake-it’s really only fair.
You couldn’t stay here, and now, I know why.
So, keep me with you-a ghost on your mind.
Slow down- get worn out, but keep me with you. (Someday)
You’re the wrongdoer-the cause of the pain.
By the time it all happens, I swear I’ll be ok.
The cause of my suffering at the scene of the crime.
I should have seen it coming but, I am done crying.
So, continue your running-don’t dare to look back.
Tell yourself you’re happy, deny your regret.
When you finally get worn out, you’ll stumble and fall
Under the burden-the weight of it all.
Slow down-get worn out but, keep me with you.
Someday, I’ll be the one who got away.
