Hangover

By Jai Cafarella on September 6, 2020 4:36 pm

Well, I knew if I took a week off it wouldn't be just one week, and sure enough, 12 weeks later, I've finally managed to claw my way back onto the wagon.


I have mixed feelings about this one, I spent a fair bit of time trying to refine it, but I can't shake this feeling there are still a few minor touches currently alluding me that will give this a more conclusive sense of achievement. But the main thing is, I have something to share in order to get the ball rolling again.


Lyrics:


Love me like a head wound
Kiss me like I don't deserve you
Break me like a promise
Hurt me like I'm barely worth it


Love me like a waste of time
Loath me til you cannot hide it
Tease me til I'm far from sober
You're my bittersweet hangover


Treat me like a mistake
I'm all yours, I'll never fake it
Let me be your letdown
Hold me down, I'm slowly drowning


Guilt me, keep me in submission
You're my favourite aneurysm
Feed me endless melodrama
My Atropa Belladonna
Kiss me til I'm barely breathing
Hallucinate my way through feeling
I'm already far from sober
Please give me my sweet hangover


Snared and deadened by venomous veils
In seizure to please her, I don't wanna leave
Dominated to keep me sedated
Set me on fire and siphon my life away


How did I become infused with you
Sacrificing myself just for you
Derelict and desperate to fit in
I questioned nothing, please just let me in


Hold me down and never let me go
I am yours, I'm under your control
Suffocate me, strangulate my soul
Make me crave you, I'll be yours alone

Welcome back. There's a reason people submit the worst trash on their bad weeks for sure.

I really like what you got here. It could do with some touch-ups in the mix, but the composition is wonderful.

This is super good, for a second I thought I was listening to trip hop radio on Spotify and was hearing something new. Reminds me of Blood Red Shoes/Sneaker Pimps. I especially love how it's kicked up a notch at 2:18. Excellent vocals too.

But yeah, just get your songs as close as you can to the vision you had, then move on. You can always revisit this later after the year ends and put it on an album or something, that's what I plan to do at least. Glad to have you back, I'll keep an eye out for your stuff.
