Suffocating Sounds I've Laid to Rest

This song was created for Game of Bands round 221 : "Only One Instrument III"

Lyrics:

A depressed optimist with a penchant
For locking up what I love behind walls
My sense of music collecting dust when I'm not looking
Cause I'm not looking forward to pain

An ex-musician with no strings attached
A guitar between boxes, never unpacked
Going searching's just asking for
Memories to float back up
Those are ashes that I've laid to rest

Don't ask me to play you a song
All I've got is disappointment
Can't touch the strings since I've been gone
It just feels wrong
It sounds so suffocating now

Borrowing trouble from tomorrow
Cause yesterday's won't last
Do I remember still how to hold the chords?
I know the strength has left me fast

Not yet a fully fledged coward
I tried about two years ago
And that feeling resides, like the tears in my eyes
On the bottom of my heart, out of control

Don't ask me to show how it's done
All I've got is disappointment
Can't touch the strings since I've been gone
It just feels wrong
It sounds so suffocating now
[Exit]
