TS@aW #52: There You Go

Ok, I’m a little late, but so what.  52 weeks (more or less), 52 songs.  I can hear trumpet fanfares in my head.  Awesome  :-)

There You Go
Caught rotten,
Staring out a window at nothing in particular,
With a poor man’s excuse for a horizon in front of me.
I’ve definitely been this way before,
I’m just not sure I like the scenery all that much.
But there you go.

I just don’t know what I want.
I just don’t know what I want.
I just don’t know what I want.
I just don’t know what I want.

That’s really beside the point though,
Seeing as how all my messages get returned to sender.
I’m still busy subdividing my divisions,
Into smaller pieces of insignificance.

What does it mean? Why should we care?
Is that the 4, or the 4GS, or the Desire?
In all the cities in all the world is there anyone
Who is well qualified to answer your questions?

I just don’t know what I want.
I just don’t know what I want.
I just don’t know what I want.
I just don’t know what I want.

Everybody’s trying to be so cool, so calm, so collected,
But you should not let that fool you.
If you scratch that surface, just a little bit,
You will find it,
The panic that consumes.

It’s a hard old station -
As someone might once have said before me.
Let me tell you, life is not fair,
And every chance you get you must grab it,
With BOTH HANDS.

I just don’t know what I want.
I just don’t know what I want.
I just don’t know what I want.
I just don’t know what I want.

TS@aW #51: How Many Times?

51 times, to answer my own question.  Ho ho ho.

Merry Christmas people!

Actually, I should clarify – this isn’t a Christmas tune. We are probably a little more like to end up on our arses this time of year, what with the ice and snow and whatnot, so the “get back on your feet again” message might be appropriate there  ;-)

One more to go.  Jeeebus.

TS@aW #50: The Devil and the Deep

Not for the first time, I’m late.  Sorry about that.  Late last week this tune was all electric guitar and beats.  It’s changed a little.  Just a smidgen.  On another point, and somewhat shamefully, it’s only the second TS@aW tune wth a banjo on it.

Tsk tsk…

On another point, song 50 out of 52!  Woooo!

TS@aW #49: Turn the Lights Down Low

It feels like I’ve left this one half-done.  I’ve been out gigging this week, (ey up Clonakilty, Wexford & Portlaoise!), which means there’s a lot that could have happened with this one that didn’t.  Maybe I’ll get back to it at some point…

TS@aW #48: The Strength of Your Rope

This here tune didn’t turn out the way I thought it would. It. Just. Would. Not. Work.

Happens sometimes. The advantage of TS@aW is that I can go through this process, end up with something I’m not particularly fond of but yet not feel like it was a waste of time.  I like those falsettos, and I like the idea of that electric guitar, but not the execution so much.  It did only have 5 strings from half-way through.  I’m guessing it shows…
