Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

It Could Have Been So Easy

This song was created for Game of Bands round 134 : "2017 In Retrospect"

Lyrics:

[verse]
All this digging, was it worth the dirt?
Now I'm hitting the clay
There's no buried treasure, well not any more
There's no light shining on me

So I'm picking up snakes to lift the game
I'm biting back and taking a leap
Breaking it down to build it up better
There's something here to save

[Chorus]
A belly full of stones and the taste of sweet fruit.
It could have been so easy.
Black lines to silence oblivious mouths
It could have been so easy.

[verse 2]
Do what you like and make it work
Take comfort in comfortable places
Or do what you can, and make it better
Be content with what's to come

A quick wave, then off again
Now keep your eyes on the road
The tax man is lurking
and you'll know what to do

[Chorus 2]
A patch on the pocket and feet off the ground.
It could have been so easy.
Now the heat of the day rushes up to the glass
It could have been so easy.

[Bridge]
I will make more mistakes
I will get it wrong again
I will still be the fool
Just to make it better

[Chorus 3]
Just to make it better
It could have been so easy.
It could have been so easy.
[Exit]
