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

Can you ever really own a horse?

This song was created for Game of Bands round 238 : "Pokémon"

Lyrics:

I was ready to settle down
she was always finding cause
counter-protest in Berlin
every other month we'd hit pause

catching waves not meant for me
I preferred security.
"I want you to love me,
but not hold me, necessarily."

she never did anything
anything she didn't want to
I could never capture her
my piscine pikachu

she just couldn't be held down
was like balloons were on her back
ours was a static electricity
fixed in state was all she had

she wrote me letters from afar
I devoured the birdsong
"butterflies kept in a jar
don't flap their wings for long"

she never did anything
anything she didn't want to
I could never capture her
my postal pikachu

but despite it all
never wanted something more
I sold myself
to buy the floor
and built the house
staked up the walls
to give her something
a place to call

she never did anything
anything she didn't want to
I didn't want to capture
my perfect pikachu
[Exit]
