On Songwriting

Thinking 11, 12, 13 years back… I’m thinking about lyrically how I actually live the songs that I write. This is a tough challenge as a songwriter on how and when to separate yourself from the work that you actually create. The dichotomy is complex for me. Some songwriters can write from a place that is abstracted. I’m working on that. I simply just can’t wait to play tonight.

Drop:

I lift my head and say to you got to go my friend
You know the things you have let them shine my friend
Where it ends around the bend got to find your way
A million miles for a thousand smiles got to make your way

I lift my hand to you carry a load my friend
You know the things you have you won’t need them in the end
I know they bring you down but you don’t frown for the pounds
Got to give it away my friend

With a shout
Let it out
Drop the weight
Let it go.

I think the things you do
You never listen, you’re a fool
Better hear what your mother said, you know it is the golden rule
Because it seems to me, you’d like to leave and sail the seas
I make my way to judgment day and love will see me through

With a shout
Let it out
Drop the weight
Let it go.
