Every Now and Then

Gettin' philosophical in my old age.

Lyrics below

 

--------------------------------
every now and then   
you hear of a tragedy
makes  you stop and think
could have happened to me

and you tell yourself again
the years have passed too fast
you're gonna live today
as if it is your last

and when the trouble passes    
like they always do
resolutions made
always fade away too

return into your world
of fabricated scenes    
surrender to distractions
yield to comfortable routine   

there are people you can lean on
but at the end you know
at the end you go on down
go down that old road alone   


Every now and then    
you reflect on where you've been  
you were there every moment
but you barely  remember a thing

and you tell yourself again
the years have passed too fast
you're gonna live today
as if it is your last

but the world keeps telling you    
another payment is due                    
fill the hours of your life
for the means to get you through

return into your world
of fabricated scenes    
surrender to distractions
yield to comfortable routine   

there are people you can lean on
but at the end you know
at the end you go on down
go down that old road alone

I really enjoyed the lyrics Bjorn - they are impressive in this song. Quite a sad song, as David mentions. You know, I thought your vocal was pretty good, and I liked the fx you used on it - it fit the mood of the song.

kloon, thanks for commenting
David, I didn't intend it to be a sad song. It's just rambling musings while staring at the ceiling at 2am and kind of open to interpretation.
Doug, thanks. I ran the voc through FabFilter Saturn which added a little more character to my voice. I need all the help I can get.
