It’s riddled with mistakes and my mic’s on loan so you can barely hear my voice, but I was asked to write a song so here’s a song what I wrote. I’ll probably re-record it once my proper microphone is back in my hands.

Because the audio’s so crap, here’s the lyrics:

A thousand smiling faces couldn’t make a change to my mind
I need to clear my head, and understand
What it was you said

A thousand calming voices wouldn’t make a change to my heart
I need to clear my head, and comprehend
What it was you meant

I can’t work it out
Why it was you and not me
I can’t work it out

A thousand photographs of when we were young
Is not enough for me to see
What it was you meant
When you left me

A thousand faded pages of when we wrote
To each other about all the things we’d done
Has left me broken
Now you’re gone

I can’t work it out
I’m just lost inside
I can’t work it out

D-F-Am-C
Death will come for us all in the end my dear
Until then I’ll wait here
For you to arrive
The long way round

I can’t work it out
Why it was you and not me
I can’t work it out
I guess I’ll wait and see

Gold - Once (Ukulele Cover)

So I saw the stage version of Once recently, and thought this was just a beautiful song. So I decided to butcher it by singing badly over me playing it on ukulele.

A Half Rotated Kaleidoscope

A half extended telescope

Is all that you will need

To see me right in front of you

I’m just out of reach but I’m here

Just burn some letters to make some smoke

Send a signal I’m watching the sky

I’ll be here in my lighthouse

Watching the seagulls pass by

Watching the sun climbing high

Waiting for you to arrive

It’s been so long since I have

Heard from you I hope you’re doing okay

I hope that things are going

Well for you and you’ll come stop at my bay

A half rotated kaleidoscope

Is all that I will need

To see you as you really are

Sailing out there on the sea

I’ll keep burning my lantern

Hoping you’ll come visit me

I’ll be here in my lighthouse

Watching the world become free

Watching the clock go slowly

Counting the time left for me

It’s been so long since I have

Heard from you I hope you’re doing okay

I hope that things are going

Well for you and you’ll come stop at my bay

It’s been so long since I have

Heard from you I hope you’re doing okay

I hope that things are going

Well for you and you’ll come stop at my bay

So I wrote this a few weeks ago, please listen/feedback/share/like/etc. :D

In a couple of days, I will record myself singing

imsoconfusedrightnow:

This is because of an anon I got a few days ago, requesting it. I’m returning home from Japan imminently so figured I’d do it a day or so after my return - but I’m gonna start asking for requests now. So drop a song into my ask and I’ll try and record myself singing a little part of it. Can’t promise I’ll be any good, but that’s what’ll make it interesting I suppose!
