hospital walls

January 10, 2008 9:25 PM

Guitar-based melancholy song with vocals. I've had this around for several years, and keep thinking I'll continue to dabble with the outro. I think it's time to just let it out. I wrote this after the breakup of a 7 year relationship. I like the lyrics, and the little solo, and many other things about it. The long fade-out ending is over-indulgent and a bit off-key, but imperfect as the song may be, it has heart.

stalemate late night calls
stuffy hospital walls
around my chest
is this the best
the best you can do?

in my hospital bed
most of me is dead
as your words ring
is this the thing
to break us in two?

(better get out of bed)
(gotta be alive instead)
(moving on)

I know this is a dark song, but I have to smile a little bit because I Love being pulled into a song and going deep. (hope that makes sense!)

I like the long "self-indulgent" fade-out ending--the backing vocals work well during that part. Neat.
