I Will Miss This Someday


Salutations!

I have so many things to post and update on. I feel like I haven't been home in a month. There's about a million things demanding my attention. I've been doing a lot on the musical front too. Currently working on songs for two albums (one which is sort of conceptual). Tonight's songful excursion lead me to write a fairly depressing ballad. So this is my 1 a.m. demo (I say demo like there is a mystical time in the future I'll actually record a version of it when I'm not really tired and using my computer mic--laughable... I probably won't. Ever). It's really unfortunate I can't be inspired or productive at reasonably convenient hours of the day. I have a theory on that, but I will elaborate another time. For now you could just listen to this sad song and stuff.

Here's a song! (It's the topmost song)

I Will Miss This Someday (demo)


Here's some lyrics!

"I Will Miss This Someday" (I know, not very clever, I'm tired)

Winter is over
But you don't smile still
And I miss it like
The sweetgrass
Of spring

Winter is over
But you don't look so well
As your vigor and life
Start to melt

Carpet beetles topple and play
Through a patchwork quilt of tousled hay
Citrine and pressed
Where the snow once lay
You look up at me and say
"You know, I will miss this someday"

Winter is over
And all that grows
Is a crushing sense
It all comes to a close

Winter is over
And you're not the one
That is telling yourself
What to do anymore

Your eyes go kind of empty and crossed
You look past the dew, tears crystallize to frost
And you tug my hem gently
As if to say
"You know, I will miss this someday"
"You know, I will miss this someday"

Winter is over
I still walk by our house
As the roof and my heart
Slowly sinks

Winter is over
A skeleton of beams remain
Like a cage
'Round this ghost of a place

And my eyes go kind of empty and crossed
As I look past the wreckage of something I lost
When I turn away, what I mean to say is
"You know, I still miss you some days"
You know, I still miss you some days
You know, I still miss you some days
You know, I still miss you some days
