I wrote this song (my first song ever, woah) in about an hour this afternoon. I still can’t play it without messing up and flubbing the words, ect, so I’m including the tentative lyrics. As I said, I’m very, very new at this, so some feedback (nice, constructive please?) would be awesome. I’ll record a version of better quality once I have the words memorized and the stuff fleshed out and what not. Ok, thanks!
I was seventeen and all kinds of green and I wasn’t ready for the things I’d see when the war came.
I could see you there on the other side looking back at me with your eyes all wide and I yelled out “I love you.”
And, I was invincible. And, you were invincible. And, we were invincible.
It had only been a year or so before the fighting had my spirit broke. So, I turned tail and ran.
I remember you chased after me and you shot me down and you watched me bleed, pleading: “Please, forgive me.”
And, I was inconsolable. And, you were inconsolable. And, we inconsolable.
It’s a tricky thing being with somebody who would bandage up your wounds as soon as give them to you; it leaves one empty.
And when it’s all over - when you finally escape - it leaves both sides without someone to hate or to love, love, love, love.
And, I was so full of holes. And, you were so full of holes. And, we were so full of holes.
Most times I’m numb until I think of how you’re off fighting other battles now. What a lucky enemy…
It’s time like that when I miss the war and the crying and the screaming with someone I adored. Don’t think I don’t miss you.
Oh, I seem invincible. But, I’m inconsolable. Because I am so full of holes.
