I can break the chains, or leave them where they lay… Song 65

65 songs down… 301 to go!

Today’s song was built on an acoustic guitar part that happened to be the first thing I played when I picked up my guitar. I love when that happens! This song reminds me of The Who. I think the bass sounds a little “Entwistley”… which is a good thing. Check it out!

Song 65: “My Mistakes”

I’m a million miles from forgiven
Waiting for my life to come undone
I can take the ties, binding up my mind
Waiting to find a better way

If I make myself blind, maybe I can see
If all those words mean anything to me
I suffer my mistakes or find another way

I don’t know how many times I’ve tried
Losing count in an endless haze
I can break the chains, or leave them where they lay
Waiting to find a better way

If I make myself blind, maybe I can see
If all those words mean anything to me
I suffer my mistakes or find another way

The sun burns my face, standing in place
Waiting to find a better way
I suffer my mistakes or find a better way

I suffer my mistakes or find another way
