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

Lone Camper

This song was created for Game of Bands round 239 : "Alone in the Wilderness"

Lyrics:

I left the office for a week
Nobody needs me anyway
And made my way to the red creek
The place where my mom used to stray

No e-mail could find me there
This secret I’ll keep forever
For when I have questions to spare
When I need some ties to sever
There is no music in this air
For once it was for the better

No guilt of singing my own songs
Around the campfire
No fear of conversations
That could have gone smoother
It’s just me and this starry night
Where light and dark are deep
And now I can speak to myself
Until I fall asleep

In a place no one else can see
Happy is the lonely ruler
Nothing is expected of me
I craved for this second nature

No guilt of singing my own songs
Around the campfire
No fear of conversations
That could have gone better
It’s just me and this simple day

I could be the perfect kind of crazy
I could answer the riddles of my years
Old regrets met all my future stories
This last silence has uncovered my ears

When I embraced this honest wind
Flowing around my hair and skin
I knew my senses hadn’t thinned
They needed somewhere to break in
[Exit]
