new music: drifting away
don't you love it when things come together at the last possible second? i don't! :-) i was getting ready to play my first solo gig in a really long time....i admit, i was a wee bit nervous....and about a day before the show, this new song came. so what did i do in the midst of my already fragile state? did i store it away to work on and nurture it? NO! i went ahead and played it that night. brand new. raw. ragged.
it was actually pretty fitting. the song talks about a guy that is so overwhelmed by his life and circumstances that he begins to detach himself from his life. you can draw a couple different conclusions from this, but i prefer to keep it vague. the fact is that we've all been maxed out at times...and we can all relate to the need/desire to run away. it's not a crime to think it and feel it. is it? :-) i don't think so.... i took some creative license on this one and i think that's ok. i hope you enjoy it!
