songwriting challenge — week 5

This week’s challenge, for no reason at all, offered me an opportunity to write a song that has a very distinct thematic/mood shift.  And so I did.

LYRICS

WEIGH YOU DOWN

INTRO
don’t you make anymore mistakes
they will stain your soul, bitterness you know
& if you break, better to be shaken
out of control…out of control

VERSE
make your promises holding your pistol
& if you catch my eye another sign of the time
contemplate your words, keep it simple
the more it’s changing, the more it’s staying

CHORUS
the same every day
if you wear the crown
that gilded ball & chain
will weigh you down

you got a lazy eye for your lover
no man can satisfy as if he’s reading your mind
& in a hail of fire you duck & cover
the more it’s changing, the more it’s staying

CHORUS
the same every day
if you wear the crown
that gilded ball & chain
will weigh you down
oh that ball & chain
will weigh you down
