Liner Notes

For some reason I decided to ignore the fact that I own a great home recording studio with several professional microphones and multitrack capability and I simply recorded this one live by playing guitar and singing into the microphone of my laptop.

Again I focused on lyrics with this one since I find it is my biggest weakness, this time I tried to do interesting things with tying each line to the next by merging the thoughts between lines... not sure how well it worked though... I'm pretty exhausted and think I should put more emphasis on sleep and less on 50/90!!! ;-)

Lyrics

I contemplated suicide once or twice
This afternoon...
I caught myself craning my neck to see the accident
Wishing it was you...
alongside me holding my heart in your hand I whisper
Please end it all...
before we struggle and fight before this love has a chance
Let's just run away...
to a church, up on a hill, like a scene from a movie
A horror flick...
on the TV, we watch silently without passion
Knowing all along the images on the screen are our real lives

But nothing's real....
Nothing's pure...
No one's happy, no one's sad...
Almost enough to make me mad
If I could feel...

When I'm with you powerful emotions fill my mind
Like a gun to my head...
These thoughts compel against my will
Thoughts of a child...
born from us forever binding our lives
Until you leave...
I will stay I will serve you in every way
To feel the pain...
The pain of unrequited love in my heart

But nothing's real....
Nothing's pure...
No one's happy, no one's sad...
Almost enough to make me mad
If I could feel...
