I’ll show you all the wounds I’ve been through… Song 224

Today I find myself writing yet another ballady kind of song. It originally started at 70bpm but the running time of the track ended up over six minutes long. So, I bumped it up to 110bpm and I liked the more upbeat feel. It still has a somewhat somber tone though. I think I’m going to try something more energetic tomorrow. I like this song, but I have a “been there, done that” kind of feeling about it. Huh, well, tomorrow is another day, as they say, often…

Song 224: “Digging In The Sand”

Disarm my fate, I’m digging in the sand
Contemplate taking my hand
I’ll show you all the wounds I’ve been through
I’ll show you where I went to pieces

If I wait too long to smile
I find life’s been gone for a while
I have to catch up

I softly sigh and give the plan away
I can’t die with so much left to say
I’ll show you all the hills I’ve climbed
I’ll show you how I won my war

If I wait too long to smile
I find life’s been gone for a while
I have to catch up

I keep my spirits up
I put one foot in front of the other
I keep my head down
And somehow I survive

If I wait too long to smile
I find life’s been gone for a while
