I am going to be brutally honest about this week’s song. I mailed it in. Some combination of lack of inspiration and procrastination lead me to write a song that I was barely interested in finishing. I won’t speak to whether or not it is a good song. That is up to the listener to decide. As this is a songwriting blog, and it is meant to shed light on the songwriting process, I’ll take this opportunity to elucidate a piece of the process that I usually hope to hide from my audience. Some songs are simply creative non-starters. Usually I’m able to push through it, or scrap it and write something different. Today I wasn’t so lucky. If I’m being totally candid, I’m not even sure what this song is about. I pretty much just wrote down some nonsense that sounded like Mount Everest lyrics. I wanted to write a simple and subtle followup to last week’s simple and subtle success, but instead I wrote whatever this is. I’m a little disappointed that things didn’t go better this week, but mostly I’m just relieved that this song is behind me. When I talk about songwriting, I frequently note that unsuccessful writing experiences are merely stepping stones to the next song that I’ll fall in love with writing.


Waking up
Feel okay
Thinking of
When they ask
Nothing new
What has got
Into you?

Take a look
Where you are
Where you were
At the start
Where you first
Learned to be
Where you love
What you leave
