about

A song about writing a song.

lyrics

He wrote his song for someone he once knew
The random girl who made his heart feel blue
The kisses and cuddles he'd never gave
Yet to her heart he's still a slave
He wrote his song for someone he once knew

He used the chords he'd used a million times
Structured verses in familiar lines
"I love you, though you're a mystery"
"You'll never know how much you mean to me"
He used the chords he'd used a billion times

He poured his heart into each and every word
He cried until the ink was blurred
He wrote his feeling in his A4 pad
Of his hearts desire driving him mad
He poured his heart into each and every word

The songwriter writes, but he never gets paid
He can count on his hands the money he's made
With his battered guitar and rusty old amp
His red letter bills and rising damp
He sings to himself in his unlit room
About sinners sinning and apocalyptic doom
With his bottles of lager littering the floor
The songwriter wonders who he's writing for....

He wrote his song for someone he once knew
The random girl who made his heart feel blue
The kisses and cuddles she'd never gave
Yet to her heart he's still a slave...
