Take A Day Off and Walk (you’ll feel so much better) – Supersmall 2013

Below are the lyrics to a song I tested for the album we’re working on at our last rehearsal. I don’t think it will make the cut it but I liked the lyrics and am posting them below. It’s a fun melody but doesn’t really sound like, well, us. It’s based on advice my wife once gave me when I wasn’t feeling my usual self. I called in sick and walked to Williamsburg and spent the day watching the world moving perfectly on by without me.

Take A Day Off and Walk (you’ll feel so much better) – Supersmall 2013

You unwound this twister on the plain,
Turned down the earth until all that remained,
Was a picture of you, hanging back up the moon,
How could I do what I do without you?

I’m tying knots in myself again,
So I won’t forget that I still have friends,
Sink or sail on a wave, with the time we have left,
Who could I possibly be without them?

I’ll fade in the light,
Of an impossible daydream,
‘Coz I know a bar,
Can’t twist me back to right,
And i’ve tried, and i’ve failed,
So I phone up excuses so impeccably said,
For a perfect day, to lose myself in.

Everything’s new when the shadows are long,
Walking reverse into the long morning’s end,
But I know you’ll be there, and without the parade,
Of a dead saint nobody has heard of.

‘Take a day off and walk’ is all you could say,
So I took the rain over granite grey shade,
Watched the sun press the sky, and bruise it into night,
How could I do what I do without you?

I’ll fade in the light,
Of an impossible daydream,
‘Coz I know a bar,
Can’t twist me back to right,
But i’ve tried, and i’ve failed,
So I phone up excuses so impeccably said,
For a the perfect day to lose myself in.
