Work in progress!
Last week was an incredible learning experience for me. I was able to learn from some very great teachers and be surrounded by 13 other brilliant composer/lyricists.--all in the beautiful city of Evanston.
Every night from 5pm - midnightish I would be cooped up in a small practice room at Northwestern University where I would try to write something new. This is one of the first songs I wrote while I was there.

It’s cold and it’s dark
you’ve climbed up too far
the air there is getting too thin
You call me and I
give you my best advice
to help you breathe calmly again
but every time, every time
You like to think you can conquer the mountain all on your own
You think you can carry the weight of the world till it breaks every bone
I hold out my hand hoping you’ll understand you were never alone
You think that you’ve conquered your mountain all on your own?
well without a direction, you’d have nowhere to go
The grass and the dirt
feel soft but it hurts
to crawl back to Earth and give in
I try to explain
you’ll get father someday
stop thinking of what might have been
but every time, every time...
maybe you’ll make it alive
maybe it’s me who can’t decide
if you need help or if you just need to figure it out
