I wrote a song on my new mandolin!!! Please listen to it and let me know what you think and stuff, I’m nervously kinda happy with it :D

Lyrics and chords:

G G C G

Early in the summer, when spring is fading out

I will wonder to that clearing, where we lay on the ground

Am Am

I will rest my head on the topsoil bed

D D

And remember how it felt to have your

Am Am

hand in mine and watch the sky fade from 

C

grey to black to red

G G C G

Early in the autumn, when the leaves are falling down

I will wonder to that clearing, where we were always found

Am Am

I will lay a blanket out just

D D

Like we used to do

Am Am

And watch the morning sunrise fade from

C

Red to pink to blue

G G C G

on mando:

8753

7532

0000

G G C G

Early in the winter, when the hoarfrost begins to show

I will wonder to that clearing, where we lay silhouetted in the snow

Am Am

I’ll clear an angel out of snow to

D D

Pretend that you are close, so I can

Am Am

Forget the time I watched your eyes go from

C

Blue to grey to closed

C Em C Em

F Am F Am F Am C

In each and every season I’ll see you again

Here in this clearing that we’ll forever share

G G C G

on mando:

8753

7532

0000

0000

G G C G

Early in the springtime, when the buds turn into leaves

I will wonder to that clearing, where you’ll forever sleep

Am Am

I will rest my head on the topsoil bed

D D

And imagine you’re doing the same

Am Am

I will watch the flowers grow

C

From the soil that’s now your grave

G G C G

on mando:

87538753

75327532

00000000

00000000

In each and every season I’ll see you again

Here in this clearing that we’ll forever share

So yeah…listen and comment and share and be nice? :3

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

I SANG A SONG

It’s called Love’s Enormous Wings by Leisure Society :D

But here is me singing Generator^ Second Floor by Freelance Whales.

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes - Up From Below

On ukulele

by me

Woo

Stornaway - Zorbing

Ukulele cover

In which I cover Chemical Love by Charlie McDonnell

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!
