8in8 Week 2
Well this one was laborous. I couldn’t get the lyric, I couldn’t get the take, I couldn’t get the mix. I wrote the chorus first and then struggled to find the verse, but when I found it I decided the verse didn’t vibe with the chorus. oh well. and the video may make some of you queasy with its movement… this is my desired effect. I want you to equate the feeling of nausea with my music. just kidding.
In Montana the days are pretty short through-out December and January. As I was thinking about the winter season, I started thinking about current events and the hovering and impending shadow of “dark days” that some people spend so much time talking about.
And then I thought about two lovers seperated for a time. And what the one would say to the other as the day approached when they would be brought together.
So this song is sort of a love letter..
the second chorus has a little vibe..not perfect, but I like where it could go. It’s not finished in my mind, but regardless here is the second song in my 8in8 challenge.
V. 1 The days are getting darker
It’s getting hard to see
The wolves outside your window
Keep asking you to bleed
They’ll stone your til you’re broken
And then hate you like a stray
But you can’t make everyone love you
Baby you’ll die out that way
CH. In darker days
Don’t have a reason To play it safe
So light up the dark honey and shine away
You’re so beautiful in darker days, darker days
In darker days
Don’t have a reason for heartbreak
So start the clock honey and make the change
You’re so beautiful in these darker days, darker days
V.2 So if you’re feeling shaken
you’re scared the sun is dying out
and the wolves out in the shadows
wait until your guard is let down
Honey our love is a fire
Lighting a harbour by the sea
When darker days are showing
Our love will lead you home me
