Am I Fighting A War That I Can’t Win?

May 26, 2011

Just wrote this last night while I was walking to dinner.  Really cool, just a little snapshot of exactly how I feel about a specific situation at that moment in time – like a musical polaroid.  Musically it actually really excites me (as wanky as it sounds) as the verses are a bluesey vocal over an acoustic guitar before it goes all glacially dancey for the bridge and the chorus, like falling slowly through the ice of a frozen lake.  Basically, it sounds like someone did a seamless mash up of Ray LaMontagne and Ladytron, which would be awesome.  Is going to take FOREVER to garageband this puppy up..

AM I FIGHTING A WAR THAT I CAN’T WIN?

am i fighting a war that i can’t win?
maybe baby i should just let you in..

maybe i missed on my chance with you
baby i don’t know what i should do

i always thought i’d be greatness
maybe we could be greatness
maybe you’re the greatness that i need
i always thought i’d be greatness
maybe we could be greatness
maybe you’re the greatness that i need

maybe all those songs were about us
maybe i shouldn’t have giv’n you up

maybe i missed on my chance with you
maybe you’re the best that i can do

i always thought i’d be greatness
maybe we could be greatness
maybe you’re the greatness that i need
i always thought i’d be greatness
maybe we could be greatness
maybe you’re the greatness that i need

maybe i should just have settled down
after everything i still want you around

maybe i missed on my chance with you
a broken heart in a picket fence is all i’ve got to look forward to?

i always thought i’d be greatness
maybe we could be greatness
maybe you’re the greatness that i need
i always thought i’d be greatness
maybe we could be greatness
maybe you’re the greatness that i need
