Promised Myself
*

This song is not in a battle


The lyrics are self explanatory as to why I wrote this song

Today I just kind of woke up, sat around for hours and hours
promised myself I'd do -- something
and before I knew it, it was 1 AM
That just kind of happens some times

I promised myself I'd talk to -- somebody
catch up with old friends. but things didn't really work out
So I just wrote a song about it .Can you believe that?
I just wrote a song about it.

Didn't try today, I didn't have the words to say
So I did not. Promise I didn't keep
Couldn't get up off my feet So I did not.

Wanted to hang out All I wanted was to shout
But I did not. I took far too long
writing lyrics this song So I did not.

I floated on the sea The world just drifted under me
So I thought. So many things to do
And I did so very few. I did not

Does this song not follow the Rules? Please Report Abuse

So did you feel better for writing the song??? -  if after going through a period of procrastination.

I used to get those days where I'd promised myself to do something and not bother, basically due to lack of desire and motivation.  But now I'm older, yeah a young 50....lol... I realize that life is VERY short, so the DESIRE & MOTIVATION has finally kicked in.

Anyway I like the song, nice dynamic changes between the solos and vox, may be a bit too bassy, but the bass  tone is nice

Well you cant have too many days of procrastination having collated an AMAZING 147 songs here on the AMP, or maybe that's the best time to write one

wow that song really hit home with me. I've been sleepwalking lately. I like the concept of writing about how frustrating it is to write. Kinda of reminded me of a song I wrote with a simular idea. "New Guitar Smell" Liked the panning on the vocs. All other parts were right where they should be. Not too loud and upfront cause then they wouldnt be keeping with the feeling of the song. Kinda in the dark corner out of sight and mind.

cheers!

Thanks, I did feel much better about it actually. I was feeling a bit bummed because I hadn't done any work and hadn't even talked to anyone that day. I write music mostly to relieve stress and express my emotional state.

I liked it. I love the depressing background of it.
All the instruments fit the song perfectly.
Also, it appeals to me .
