Going Nowhere

March 7, 2016 11:45 AM

This mp3 was converted from a video I made, recording stereo audio straight into my phone. It's a rough draft with minimal instrumentation and arrangement I'm hoping to develop further with a group that recently started coming together called The Wishing Well Divers.


You get so tired of losing people you love
Easy come easy go there's another one gone

Sometimes it feels like that's all that you know

Like the story of your life is getting left behind
when others go

Your mom and dad were the first ones to blow
your whole scene while they went off
Searching for their souls

Guess they never found what they were
Looking for

Because they never came back for you
Just kept following those tracks on through
Going nowhere

Some left to chase after fortunes and gold
And more than a few died
without getting very old

Some wanted love, some wanted death,
Some wanted hope

The only point on which they all agreed
Is that there's always somewhere else to be
Going nowhere

Catchy! Great songwriting.

I really enjoyed this, something about the guitar playing reminded me of Jonathan Richman's circa "Because Her Beauty is Raw and Wild", which can only be a good thing.

Really well-written song. Enjoy the bare production, the guitar part , and the vocals too. Melody is very strong. Nice work!

I love this--I can picture it with a full band, but it works perfectly well stripped down as is. I dig how the buoyancy of the rhythm balances out the sadness of the lyrics.
