It occurs to me as someone who writes lyrics and music, that a song that is taken from experience is muddied also in subjective experience. One situation could have infinite opportunities for a song. A funeral doesn't have to be sad.

This particular song is about being conflicted between writing two different songs for the same situation. Maybe it puts all those sappy love songs into perspective to see another way of seeing someone.

Maybe not though, also.



I've got one song to make you happy
and one song to play when you're gone,
I've got one song to make you happy
and one song to play when you're gone,

I've got a song that's all about the way you'd laugh
and how you smile loud,
and how you dance,

A song about your clever mind
and how you'd school me every time
if my big mouth gave you the chance,


I'm growing tired of this place
as I've grown weary of your face
and I know it won't be long,

So like a lady when you mumble
"Maybe I love you"
as a clock runs like a song,


this song you won't hear about
because you won't be around
a little crown to fit your head,
this is a song for you
for what you'll put me through
when you leave this bed,



from Mild Card, released March 23, 2017
