  • Common Fate

    416 views 2 years ago
    Another attempt at the new song with a few more days under my fingers. This one's a little slower, with better placed breaths. Except because of the slower tempo, I still don't have enough air near the end. Also, death stare at the beginning is the result of flubbing the penultimate chord change on the previous take.

    COMMON FATE

    fire rose up
    and the sky came down
    the earth she shook us all around

    it was the end of days
    so we were making haste
    everyone shared a common fate

    but I see you
    as you see me
    so nothing here is incomplete

    we've always been apart
    even though we share the same heart
    so nothing here has really changed
    no, nothing here has really changed

    when my hands grow cold
    you'll still know what you've always known
    and what I did my best to show

    as many days ahead
    as there are days behind
    always in the middle of your own life

    time is gravity
    pulls you further away from me
    as indifferent stars look on and yawn

    but I see you...

    return to that house, return to our bed
    you never left my heart, you never left my head

    so when my hands grow cold
    you'll still know what you've always known
    and what I did my best to show. Show less
