Worse than nothing

I have a new song published! Available here:

Spotify

iTunes

The song is a brooding affair, part atmospheric like a Pink Floyd number and part aggressive as a Guns n’ Roses track.

Most of my songs are written over a long period of time but my memory of this song is it all happened on 2nd January 2000. The verse lyrics accurately describe a dream I had that night and the chorus is my feeling on waking.

A walk in the park
A date with destiny
I’m coming to see you
You know nothing of me
I’m losing my way
With nowhere left to go
Brace for the impact
Ready for the show
Then I wake up
The world is black and grey
Walk among the empty souls
TV bores you
Whisky gets you through
To night time and to sleep
A pleasant afternoon
Inconsequential chat
I’m burning up inside
I know you can see that
There’s nothing left to say
Reminds me of what’s lost
Dreams of the future
That’s what hurts the most
Then I wake up
The world is black and grey
Walk among the empty souls
TV bores you
Whisky gets you through
To night time and to sleep
I said that you were of my dreams
Now I understand what that means
Since that September day
Since I went and lost my way
Someone else’s luck was in
Now I can’t find where to begin
So close to perfection
Is Worse Than Nothing At All
Then I wake up
The world is black and grey
Walk among the empty souls
TV bores you
Alcohol gets you through
To night time and to sleep
