If you’re a follower of the Audio Saturdays column here, you know that for the past couple week’s we’ve been exploring the music of early 00s indie band Trousers. It was a lot of fun revisiting that old material, but now that the album is finished we’re kind of at a loss for what to do next. While we mull over some ideas, we’re going to go back to what got us here, at least for the time being.
Here’s something random I found on my phone. It’s pretty and minimalist and embryonic. From summer 2018ish. Never did anything with it, but maybe you can? Let’s make this another Audio Saturdays Songwriting Prompt contest.
I’m officially putting this acoustic snippet into the public domain. Best song using this music (either the music or the recording itself) gets $50 bucks.
That’s cool. I am already working on some lyrics. I’ll probably be too late with my results, but this is a very fun and creative contest. Thank you, Joe.
I got some lyrics…I need to take the time to make them work and record them..
Don’t Let Me
Don’t let me be the one to have to tell you
Because you know it’s something you already know
But If I’m going to have to tell you
Things will change, and you will go
Yes, I tried to hurt you
I wanted you to feel the same
Pain you left for me
That morning in the rain
But she was nothing, really, to me
A convenient mistake
And palliative to take
The sting out of your bite
I’m only saying these things
So you know that I know that you knew
So we can finally say goodnight
In the cleansing light of day
