wait for love
The next 5 weeks I’ll be pulling from the Weights & Wings Demo recording sessions. There’s some interesting first-attempts at songs that made the album, as well as a couple of tunes that never got released, like this one.
I had been toying with this guitar rif/progression for at least a year and couldn’t figure out what melody would work with it. I do love the turn the bridge takes- very unexpected and so Stevie Wonder! I also love the melody on the outro- actually, the more i listen to this the more i wonder why this is the first time i’m letting anyone hear it! Here are the lyrics:
Sunday morning, finished sleeping off the alcohol,
So at home with all this shame and fear.
Who I am, why I was and what I’m trying to be
Nothing’s safer than remaining here.
Even when the light fades
Even when the darkness lingers
Even when the heartache’s
Making everything unclear.
Take me as I am, there’s no more pointed fingers
And wait for love to come
I can find enough excuses to do anything
Then just enough to go and change my mind
All this spinnin’s got my heart and head all tangled up
That’s why I’m needing you to make it right.
All this time
You stood by
Waiting for me to come back home
