getting that itch to move out. making lists, plans... and realizing it's all hopeless.
where do I start
I don't have the means
to run away from here
so I wait here longing
for the answers to come to me
and I daydream of things
I'll never really need
where could I go
I don't know what it means
to roam free
so I'll forever be
in desperate, useless need
sort of came out of nowhere, I didn't plan on adding to this song. there's an mp3 of this up somewhere if you can find it ;)
but I've been on this kick of getting rid of things, and it's just so sad how the things you own tie you down. how could I go anywhere on my own with a couch, a computer, a tv, 9 zillion clothes, etc.?
'the things you own end up owning you'
ok, the harmony makes this song super-weird. I don't know if that's good or bad. :-/
so I coast
(I don't know where to go from here, I don't know)
the way the water lets me flow
(where to float on my own)
I don't know where to go
(I can't roam from this flow)
so I try to break myself free
from all these useless things
but I know I'll always be
in this helpless, hopeless dream
I think I'm almost done with this, it's like 3 minutes long and because I'm insane, that seems short to me, but I might leave it as is. I pulled a claire and added a third harmony track.
last edit on this poor post: the new recording is up, might be polished a bit before it goes on my audio page. download here: http://www.forrestrose.com/music/Claire_Raby_-_Away_From_Here.mp3 I think this is my new radio hit or something.
