Nervous to post this — my first open mic vid

I’m here to report the good news but I am also getting butterflies while typing. In the past few months I finally checked off a major bucket list item. I wrote a song and I played it out at an open mic. The song is called “Clean Clothes” and I wrote it because I had been writing too many sappy sad songs. I’m not really a sad person, so I thought of what the best feelings are. One of the best feelings is when you find someone new and you are starting to fall in love. It is like you are sledding faster than you want to be but it is an electric and fun time. All the butterflies.

I’ll post the lyrics below. I hope you like it 🙂

 

“Clean Clothes”

You smell like clean clothes

You feel like kisses on the forehead

Homemade coffee sipping in bed

with the door closed

 

And it’s too soon

But I’m sensing –

[Chorus]

I’m not getting out of this one easy

oh no

Gonna take a whole damn choir of angels to save me

And so

All I ask is that we try to take it slow.

Cuz I’m not getting out of this one easy

[v2]

Mr. Left Field Delight

Mr. Maybe Mister Right

Singing me Sinatra love songs in the shower

And my head is a mess

And I cannot find my dress

I’m late to work but I confess

That is was worth it

 

At least I hope so,

Because I’m hopeless

[Chorus]

I’m not getting out of this one easy

oh no

Gonna take a whole damn choir of angels to save me

And so

All I ask is that we try to take it slow.

Cuz I’m not getting out of this one easy

[Bridge]

I may not get out of this one at all

But I’m to busy stumbling to worry if I fall

[Chorus]

I’m not getting out of this one easy

oh no

Gonna take a whole damn choir of angels to save me

And so

All I ask is that we try to take it slow.

Cuz I’m not getting out of this one easy

Not getting out of this one easy

oh no

 

Cheers, all. To leaving the nervous feeling [that kept me from posting this for months] in 2017.

What’s up 2018.
