Friday Song: “Not Much To Do”

 

I was talking to my friend Ary last night, and she reminded me of when Girlyman (my old band) was touring in the UK. We visited Stonehenge, and while everyone else went out to look at it, I stayed in the van and read a book. It’s not that I didn’t want to see Stonehenge, it’s just that I wanted some time to myself. That seems to have come out in this song.

There’s another weird sound glitch on this recording – I think the microphone attachment for my iphone is dying. Next time I’ll just try recording with the built-in mic (the simpler the better, when it comes to these things).

You go outside, I’ll stay in here
I know it’s beautiful
The sun is warm, the skies are clear
But I would like to just sit still
And rest a while, while you go out
If I don’t do this now, I never will

Oh babe, you know I love you
So short, this time
And yet not much to do

I want for you to be happy, too
Go and walk out in the sun
Just give me a minute here or two
I guess I’m scared I f what I feel
But I can’t tell, I’m overwhelmed
I need some space to see if it is real

Oh babe, you know I love you
So short, this time
And yet not much to do

I’d get up and walk away
But something else
Makes me stop and stay
So I’ll stay here today

We’re going home, another week
And I’ll clean up the mess I made
Clean the faucet, fix the leak
But none if that will change a thing
If I win, of if I lose
I guess I choose to still sit here and sing

Oh babe, you know I love you
So short, this time
And yet not much to do
