>new songs

>The past few weeks have gotten me into writing a couple of new songs that in a way sounds crappy since i don’t have any means to record at home right now other than via my mobile phone which doesn’t save in any standard sound format like .wav or .mp3 so anyways here’s the lyrics of those new stuff.

What goes on in the mind of a dying Ian

Loving you is like living a Joy Division song
‘Love will tear us apart’ that’s what Ian said
Before he hanged himself
All our hopes and dreams

Those things that you
Wanted to hear from me
Like saying “I love you”
Kiss you “goodnight”
I’ll hold you tight
Through the blackest night
Before our love turned sour

Holden Caufield’s Letter of Apology

Winds of change
Tides & tempest
Brewing storms

Figures of speech

I am selfish
I’m just an ordinary guy
