different sides


friends,

 

episode 677 centers around my excitement over a new song.

 

i think it came out well.

 

i hope you'll agree! :)

 

different sides

 

i remember being there with you

roses red and the violet so blue

i will never be able, it's true

 

i remember the look on your face

disgusted, unhappy, irate

forgive me for being so late

 

and if you can't, i'm happy,

and if you can't, i'm happy,

and if you can't, i'm happy to wait.

 

i remember the time we first met

that instant familiar estate

how holy to be where you are

 

from different sides of the,

from different sides of the,

from different sides of the war.

 

and time's a cruel mystery

forever is so long indeed

and what is there left to believe

 

of that distant defeated,

of that distant defeated,

of that distant defeated dream.

 

perhaps it's the world i know now

i wish we could share it somehow

forever's a kind of release

 

i know it don't,

no, i know it don't,

o, i know it don't ever leave.

 

and if you can't, i'm happy,

and if you can't, i'm happy,

and if you can't, i'm happy to wait.

 

from different sides of the,

from behind my lines of the,

from different sides of the war.

 

over our distant defeated,

over our distant defeated,

over our distant defeated dream.

 

no, i know it don't,

i know it don't,

o, i know it don't ever leave.


tonight's songs:

- different sides (demo, 2019)

failure


friends,

 

i spent most of today working on a song that never materialized.

 

it's hurts to fail, and i'm trying to learn from it.

i hope you'll listen.


the songs:

- mountain (splitting, 2015)

- too soon (failed version, 2019)

- black and blue (201? demo of a 2007-ish song)

too soon


friends,

 

episode 675 is here, and finds me grappling with the right path for a song.

 

i'm not there yet, so still thinking it through + trying to find it.

 

too soon

 

there ain't someone for everyone

that much there for sure is true

not if you hold a bar up high

or if you're goin' somewhere new

 

too soon too soon too soon too soon

too soon too soon too soon too soon

 

planets move the other way

it happens all the time

logic ain't a friend of mine

nor is she lookin' for a sign

 

too soon too soon too soon too soon

too soon too soon too soon too soon

 

the impossible has lost its mind

just another swollen limb

used to be just me and you

now it's g-d forbid

 

too soon too soon too soon too soon

too soon too soon too soon too soon

too soon too soon too soon too soon

too soon too soon too soon too soon

too soon


tonight's songs:

- too soon (new demo, 2019)

- too soon (v1.0, 2019)

- cards (inner circles, 2018)

 

i hope you'll join me.

 

love,

russell
