Gasoline

A short and melancholy finger-picking diddly, based around some chords I've liked for ages.
I think as part of this group of WB songs I'll also write up some guitar transcriptions for the eventual bundle/release.
I'm going back during the weeks now and working on my previous songs - adding parts / remastering them, and the difference is huge! Starting to get comfortable with the idea of releasing these tracks in such a rush - especially now that I've heard some of them with the polish that comes from a bit of extra time.
Thanks for listening!

Is this everything you've ever wanted?
We've come so far
I know at times you get so lost and daunted -
but look where we are.

And it's always
Cookin' in the back of my mind.
I keep on looking and looking -
But I don't find it.

And I'll go running round the streets where I grew up
Without you
And I still dream of lighting gasoline
and busting out.

Now we're running up and round the garden -
of branching paths.
Read the signs we don't know where we're going
Too much to ask.

And it's always,
playin' in the back of my mind.
I keep on looking and looking
but I don't find it.

I could've sworn I've heard that intro before somewhere else. It's a nice intro though.
