about

I wrote this shortly after moving to Vancouver, hence the opening line.

To be vague, let's just say the song is kind-of about those "big" things that happen to us in life. Those things that we typically like to plan for, or talk to death, when what we should be doing is enjoying them in the moment; if we can't enjoy them, the least we can do is to learn from them.

For me, it was at least in part about the move itself.

I recorded this demo at home on my laptop. All the lyrics/arrangements/melodies/harmonies you hear are me, the instrument, a microphone, and Cubase LE.

I hope you like it!

LoveSteph

lyrics

It rains and rains in the city these days
must be winter again
and so it begins.
You take, and take all the magic away
just preparing for change
never letting it.
Ah, listen.
There are parts you're missing,
if you're always talking
over everything.
These are the stakes
for my sanity's sake
before everything breaks
get ahold of yourself.
Ah, listen.
There are parts you're missing,
if you're always talking
over everything.
