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

A Curious Incident in a Gastropub Outside of Gainesville (Phosphene)

This song was created for Game of Bands round 231 : "Random Emotions"

Lyrics:

(Verse)
I was drinking in a restaurant, southeast of Gainesville
And something 'bout the way she looked, it bent me to her will
And the way she grabbed my collar, made me feel like I was ill

She took me pack to her place, and I felt our love was true
We laid in bed and tossed and turned, and when the night was through
I woke up and then she was gone, and I was just confused

(Chorus)
Was she just a phosphene?
A flash of light, gone in the night
A phosphene
Lost in the lies when I opened my eyes

(Verse)
Well I went back to the restaurant, to have myself a think
I tried to see if you she was there, I felt my heart just sink
I couldn't see her anywhere, and bought myself some drinks

As I drank myself half to death, I let my sadness out
I smashed my glasses in my hands, and I felt myself shout
"Oh where did you go, woman?" And I felt myself pass out

(Chorus)
Was she just a phosphene?
A flash of light, gone in the night
A phosphene
Lost in the lies when I opened my eyes

(Solo)

(Half-verse)
So there I was along the road, arm held out for a ride
And what I saw across from me, it tore me up inside
For there I saw the woman, with a new man by her side

(Chorus)
She was just a phosphene
A flash of light, gone in the night
A phosphene
Lost in the lies when I opened my eyes

She was just a phosphene
A flash of light, gone in the night
A phosphene
Lost in the lies when I opened my eyes
