Knocking on the door of fates not mine… Song 364

Two more songs to go! I counted up all the songs I’ve released in total and after this project is done, I’ll have released 794 songs. Just six away from an even 800… just 206 away from an even thousand… hmm.

Today’s song ended up coming together quickly from a very simple acoustic guitar part. As I was strumming, my brain started firing off ideas on the direction the song should go. I added some strings then drums and I had to add a piano. Oddly, there are no synths in this one. But I think it ended up pretty good, especially the jam part at the end.

Song 364: “Waiting, Chasing”

Waiting for the end to come
Chasing what I used to know is true

Waiting for the world to catch up
Chasing a world I cannot see, it’s me

Knocking on the door of fates not mine
Finding ways to pass the time I wasted

Waiting for my chance to shine
Chasing a choice to leave behind, in flames

Knocking down the door to find what’s mine
Tripping over my own mind, I waited

All those days, still I wait
All these days, spend wondering
Spent waiting
