I'm My Own Worst mp3

May 6, 2013 11:50 AM

A few weeks back I posted this, which was a bit shit. In trying to turd-polish I eventually scrapped the vocal melody and lyric, opened a mic and this came out. Whether it's any better is anyone's guess, but I do like the juxtaposition of a seemingly sunny melody etc with a sinister lyric.

I'm My Own Worst Enemy

take a little time to see things going on around of me
take a little time to hear it
it takes a little time to heal
takes a little time to feel the sunshine

i'm my own worst enemy
seems I'll always be
under a spell
a stranger to myself

i'm my own worst enemy
i left my memory
in some hotel
now I'm not so well

underneath a broken tree
sleep is slipping sleeplessly
bees fly heavy in the tall heat
when the wind in the barley...flees
i can hear you whispering to me

"when I was young I would sing songs of hope"

i'm my own worst enemy
i wasn't always me
somewhere, some place
there was a different face

i'm my own worst enemy
i recall imperfectly
a girl with a ring
a song she loved to sing

i'm my own worst enemy
i need these friends you see
watching my health
i'm a danger to myself

i'm my own worst enemy
so I'm on ADT
who shall I tell
pussy's in the well?

This has got a really strong Police sound to it, the backing sounds GREAT. The vocal is cool, but I kind of want it to be a bit spikier, a bit clearer, to reflect that vibe from the backing track.

Ha! Absolutely top notch. Hoops seems to have unlocked something in you.

Nobody else could possibly have come up with this. Love it.
