Roads of Plenty

My attempt at the Metafilter lyric challenge

First recording I've shared, so be kind!
Used Audacity to record it, tried doing two tracks, guitar and vocals, but my singing is even worse (hard to believe...) if I'm not playing the guitar at the same time. So after a few takes, this one came up with the least mistakes.

Hope you enjoy!

My fingers hurt...


Needs and dreams and desires
make or break our fragile lives
the path to happiness and comfort
is often paved with pain

We walk down roads of plenty
that turn into fields of pain
'cause life is all about conflicting
that we face everyday

The choice between good and evil
is one made long ago
The desire to be good and selfless
is often drowned by greed


Unhappy with what life's dealt them
desiring and craving for too much
their days spent dreaming of perfection
damning their lives to lament.

Glad the lyric challenge inspired you to record and post your song here, Vagabond.

Good shot. I'm surprised there weren't more shots at the lyric challenge. You're fortunate to have some grit in your voice, and you're using it the right way here. Thanks for including the complete lyrics.
