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

Shortwave Skull - Pretending To Sleep

This song was created for Game of Bands round 217 : "Emulate A Well Known Band Or Artist II"

Lyrics:

Stop me if you've heard this one before
I'll leave the door cracked for the ghosts
I hope they come back around again
I love you but I love them the most
Pretending to sleep all night
But you can't get the breathing right
Too deep in the shallows now
To open your bloodshot eyes


Come back down and join the party
Summer’s near and the sky is clear
Come back down and join the party
Come back down and join the party please


Jetting home on a haunted plane
The pilot is a nervous wreck
Taxi Driver on the in flight film
Stupid pillow on your stupid neck
You said the mood wasn't suiting you
And the food was polluting you
Too low in the sky right now
Let me know if this is old news


Come back down and join the party
Summer’s near and the sky is clear
Come back down and join the party
Come back down and join the party please


A phantom whispering sweet nothings
Words wrap around my arms
Wake me with a jolt from dreaming
Always forget to set alarms

Waiting, hanging out around this place
No real reason to of course
Stupid look on your stupid face
Some idiom about water and a horse.


Come back down and join the party
Summer’s near and the sky is clear
Come back down and join the party
Come back down and join the party please

Come back down and join the party
No one here can smell your fear
Come back down and join the party
Come back down and join the party please

Join the party
Join the party
Join the party
Join the party please
[Exit]
