To-day

Walk.

Whole song fingerpicked walk-down from C to Am. Pick the high e when you land on Am instead of the B.

Let us go for a walk.
We need to breathe.
We need to talk…

Let us throw off the trappings.
Of society.
Strip naked. Lay bare.
Our personality.

I can see you and you can see me.
The person you married.
We can just…

We can hold hands.
We’ll feed the birds.
I’ve brought some seeds.
Let’s see if it works.

I won’t think of work.
You don’t think about school.
Just think of our footsteps.
Alone in this world.

This can’t last forever.
We’ll have to go home.
Treasure this…

Equinox – A Town In Caves

Verses – C / G / Em / D
Chorus – Bm / Am / G / Bm / C / G / Em

Verse 1
They say the sky is falling
so let it fall let it fall on me
they say the futures calling
that don’t make sense to me
they say that it’s going to rain
then let it fall down on me
they say the grass’ll be greener
but it all looks grey to me

Chorus
get out while you can
get out while you can
don’t look back

Verse 2
they say that life is sacred
yours is no more sacred than mine
they say that love is wasted
so lets go make some wasted time
they say the change is coming
well I ain’t seen it yet
you pray to the sky for a saviour
but we all get what we get

Chorus
get out while you can
get out while you can
don’t look back

Guitar Solo

Verse 3
they say I want to rock and roll all night
well I got some news today
it says the world will end today
well let it come, let it come, let it come
they say there’s something beautiful
waiting out there just for me
out there beyond the fallen sky
and beneath the rising sea

Chorus
get out while you can
get out while you can
don’t look back

To my mother.

Updated the chords. This song has come a long way from the sad mess I was when I wrote it.

Adulting sucks.

Woke up at 6:30 am to kids banging around upstairs. I had the genius idea of letting my kids do a double-sleepover. So as I am cleaning up from a 7 am pancake breakfast I wrote a song in my head about a responsibility free life. I called it ‘Adulting sucks’.

G
Don’t want a cat
Don’t want a dog.
                      C                      D           G 
Don’t want any responsibility at all.

G
Don’t want more kids.
Yeah, two will do.
                        C                                   D                     G
You can have more if that’s what you want to do.

C                       D                G
Give me my acoustic guitar
             C                   D                       G
pot of coffee and a garden in the yard.
C                         D               C                        D
I’ll pick my life away with sunshine on my face
e      f             G
that sounds great.

G
Don’t want a car.
Yeah, not at all.
C                           D              G
Don’t want to spend my Saturdays at a mall.

G
Don’t need more money
Cuz’ singing’s free
                       C                     D                    G
and you can be as free as you want to be.

C                       D                G
Give me my acoustic guitar
             C                                D                     G
Sunny Saturdays and my garden in the yard.

I’ll sing my life away with sunshine on my face
