about

Thank you for listening to my collaboration with Andrew. I've created my lyric and posted it on FAWM.ORG. The title was suggested by Martin Quibel for skirmish (a challenge to create a song/lyric/instrumental with a particular title or theme).
Andrew kindly offered to create music to it. I absolutely love Andrew's demo. Thank you Andrew for your fantastic vocals and playing.

A Winter's Day, I'm feeling stuck
No ideas sound right
My Winter's day so I suck
May be in Winter I'm not bright

I want to shout at myself "What's wrong?"
But it wouldn't help, it wouldn't help
It wouldn't help me write a song

First Winter month has passed, I'm still stuck
I should just try, start with the word, idea, phrase
I think I'm having bad luck
Oh how I miss my inspiration days!

I could write about food
Or how overeating is no good
But nothing feels as a potential theme
And all I want now is to scream

I want to shout at myself "What's wrong?"
But it wouldn't help, it wouldn't help
It wouldn't help me write a song

A Winter's Day, I'm feeling stuck
No idea sounds right
My Winter's day so I suck
May be in Winter I'm not bright

A Winter's day, a Winter's day
But no excuses, I should find the way...
