Coming to Get Me (WB41)

By spry on October 10, 2020 9:14 pm

Was feeling kinda silly today. Decided to write a song about paranoia induced by living alone (complete fantasy I assure you).

Spent about an hour putting together the backing track. Kept it super simple with my ABABB format again. Spent another hour writing lyrics and recoding them. Kept it simple here too. Took another hour chopping and mixing/fxing the tracks. Didnt really bother to polish it nicely or record harmonies (which it could definitely use). Totalk work time about 3 hours!

EDIT: I listened to it a couple times and decided I needed to add in the harmonies. Went back and spent about an hour and a half recording, chopping and mixing them in. Put the total work time to about 4 hours 30 minutes

Lyrics:

Forever at home
And feeling alone
On the surface it seems that
No one's after me
But I'm checking the locks
And locking the doors
Just in case I'm wrong

Looking out the windows
Checking on the neighbors, just in case

Some might say that I am paranoid
I say its better safe than dead
So I'll keep checking on the neighbors
Even if it's all in my head (it's all in my head)

It does feel like a song about fantasy paranoia. Great style.
