Just Nothing.

Missing

They’ll try forever to become
Who you want them to be

Pity those who don’t listen to what they are told
The complicated way is to go looking on your own
Mistaking the signs and wasting precious time
For a purpose never there lost for you to find

It’s easy; believe what is said is truth
Live in ways meant best for you
Others have done it right
Don’t question them and you’ll be fine

Only until you question why you don’t belong to you
Missing all you recognized and pushed far out of view…

————————————–

Why do there have to be so few days where I feel grateful for having woken up? Maybe if I actually got to sleep for more than an hour…

I did a cover of Farther Away a couple of weeks ago. Sounds nothing like the upbeat/aggressive Evanescence original and that was the goal–this is a piano version: https://www.box.com/s/ba6098060886fc45450b  Why bother with trying to sound like the original when you could just go listen to that, perfect as is…

Anyway, I don’t plan anymore covers and once I’m done with the songs I’m working  on now, I’ll put the recorder away and move on. Things really aren’t going in a good direction and I’ll be throwing in the towel by the end of June.

    This part of the poem really resonates. There is the way it is suggested life be lived generally & there is the way you wish to live which in our cases I suspect differ & conflict with one another a decent amount. It’s frustrating because you only live once, as such deferring to preconceived ideas of lifestyle seems outrageous if it’s not what you want & what’s more you’re made to feel outcast if you desire to or actually stray. I hope one day we’re both confident enough to push those in our way aside & walk the paths only we desire!

    As for cover songs, I grew out of playing them a long time ago myself but many musicians seem to love playing their favorites. Sometimes it’s still fun but for me I’d usually rather listen to the actual song or see it performed live than play it myself & potentially butcher it, lol. I’ll have a listen to the original & your cover later on. I really hope you keep on recording your original stuff though! You ought to message me about it if you have recording questions or want to discuss anything musically
