Begin to Fade

Updated: Sep 2, 2020

Not a real story here. Just a blues riff and a handful of words. It was a little shorter than I wanted and I wasn’t sure where I was heading, so I just repeated all the verses in one, two-part harmony mega-verse.

Just a twist of circumstance

And everyone deserves a chance

To live the life they want to live

And do you have it your heart to—forgive

Staring at the wall it seems

That I have thrown away my dreams

But I’m not sure, I can’t recall

I put my back against the wall—again

I can’t see—as my memory—begins to fade

If you read between the lines

You’d be surprised what you may find

They say the truth is always there

But I’m so jaded I don’t even—even care

Everybody wants to be

The center of attention

All the things they’re scared to mention

Seem to gather up and smack them in the face

I can’t see—as my memory—begins to fade

Begins to fade

Shotgun to Memphis

And in distant trees, requiems and melodies remain. Retorts in rhapsody, feels like I’ve been in here for days, and days, and days.
