Happy to be back in the recording studio this weekend after a long hiatus. We’ve been dabbling on and off with video as a means of potentially putting out some music. Getting other people to sing my songs now as well.
I have been relatively unproductive this year in terms of writing/recording demos (11 new songs which is well down on my usual numbers). This is one I recorded the other night. Might do it in studio somewhere down the line. The image is my new keyboard – Aldi homebrand Thomann stage piano.
I Liked You Better Before
I liked you better when you seemed unhappy and alone
I used to love your misanthropy on my phone
I liked you better when imagining you in despair
I used to love the bitterness you used to share
But you seem to now have found a tool to love and lose the kind of blues that I always found so strangely reassuring
I liked you better when I thought that you had lost your way
I would imagine then that I could come and save the day
I liked you better when you seemed to be losing your mind
I would imagine then I was the one you needed to find
But you seem to now be in a different league
I guess you need reality
And I no longer find you strangely reassuring.
And I’m thinking now why not believe in God
Because everything is a mystery
And what’s more
I have lost my last rapport
I liked you better before
