Song Description

A live acoustic performance of Dark,a song i wrote about 4 years ago. I recorded a home studio version in 2004 but was of a higher tempo. I feel the song was more suited to 'bare bones acoustic version' as this is how I normally perform. As the name suggests, theres quite a dark feel to the song but keeping the same cord formation throughout has allowed me to experiment with vocal melody's a lot more, almost forcing a progression into the vocals. Lyrically I wrote and rewrote numerous times, trying different feels/moods. The desperate, layabout yet optimistic feel seems to work for this one.

Lyrics

Dark

A little dark, alittle crazy,
Do you think this sea of hope could save me,
Little burned out, worn out,
Guess we're all the same.

I been running off cheap cigarettes and coffee,
As they burn down to my finger tips can't shake this feeling off me,
Another fool in the night, walk hand in hand with me.

I been singing, honey I been drinking,
Catch me spinning in the morning when the music gets me thinking,
Too tired of wasting this time a little burned out theres no denying,
I guess it make me.....

A little dark, alittle crazy,
Do you think this sea of hope could save me,
Little burned out, worn out,
Guess we're all the same.

I been slipping through the fingers of the ages,
Drinking wiskey in the afternoon and flicking through those pages,
so lost in the words, as blind as I can be.

I been moving, honey I been crusing,
Got this shaking in the morning think I'll blkame it on the boozing,
Fast track to a heart attack, grab your coat and get your money back,
You Know your sunk when....

The light of your life, a fallen angel,
Hell bent on sucking on your pride, a subtle feeling.
Too tired of wasting this time, alittle burned out theres no denying.

I been moving, honey I been crusing,
Got this shaking in the morning think I'll blkame it on the boozing,
Fast track to a heart attack, grab your coat and get your money back,
You Know your sunk when....

The light of your life, a fallen angel,
Been sucking on your pride, a subtle feeling.
Too tired of wasting this time, alittle burned out theres no denying.
