markboulanger A collection of wonderful songs. Day 2 is one of my favorite tunes.

Let me tell you, depending on who you ask, the Fire Is Motion full-length is the greatest lost album since either Songs from the Black Hole, the 3rd Necrophagist LP, or the follow-up to The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. Favorite track: Day 2.

about

In an effort to remain creative/productive/mentally stable, I decided to write and record a song every day for an entire month using no pre-written material. Around the third day, I realized just how overly ambitious this idea was (due to life/work/responsibilities), and shifted it to doing four separate series of "write and record a song every day for a week." Does that make sense? I hope that makes sense.

These are Days 1-7. It started on July 14th of the year 2014, and ended on July 21st of the year 2014. I will do more of these whenever I feel like it.

Track Name: Day 1
There's not much to tell you these days.
I'm still "trying,"
I'm still singing the same songs.
No wonder nothing gets done.
No wonder I'm a joke to everyone.

I'm afraid of all the things that I want,
and everything that can take them all away.
I don't believe, but I prayed for you today.
Kept praying you'd find reasons to stay.

Sometimes I can not help myself help you,
and sometimes I give up at starting lines.
I'm tired of being scared of being scared.
Next time I'll learn to be better unprepared.
Track Name: Day 2
"I thought it would rain today."
But it never did.
Was I supposed to say,
"I just want to be in bed?"

I thought of what you said that day.
"There's never enough to say,"
sounds a bit cliche,
but you wrote this song in a way.

"I thought it won't rain today."
That's one less reason to stay.
So, what was I to say?
"I just want to stay in bed."
Track Name: Day 3
Some things get in the way:
1) A blown-out tire on your way to the Meatlocker,
2) A license revoked (what a joke),
3) A flood set to devour us.
Can we talk about your real fears?
Let's hope we're not going to hell in a handbasket.

But I'm glad you're here.
It's been such a long time.
Track Name: Day 4
I don't understand what it was,
or what it still is.
I wanna go to sleep in my empty bed.
Away from these thoughts.
Away from these dreams.

There is never enough time.
There is always enough time.
Track Name: Day 5
When you breathe in tiredly,
don't think of me.
When your friends ask of me,
don't think of me.

When you hear this melody,
don't think of me.
When you try not to think of me,
don't think of me.
Track Name: Day 6
I don't want to be in your head.
I just want to be in your bed.
I don't want you to feel misled.
I just want to be in your bed.

I really shouldn't be here.
There's work to be done.
Your bed sure looks inviting,
but theres work to be done.

I don't want to be in your head.
I don't want to be in your bed.
I don't want to be in your head.
I don't want to be in your bed.
Track Name: Day 7
I wish I took the time
to take in everything you told me.
I wish I took the time
to take in all the times you'd scold me.

I wish I took the time to take in everything.
