Song: I Cursed Everything

FAWM 2018

Album: FAWM 2018
Track: #9

Kind of just a channeling of sadness. I wasn't really sad when writing it, but I had a _very_ short window to write a song in today, so I picked a chord progression, found an emotion, and delved into a story. This one has potential I think, but seeing as I had about 15 minutes to write it (not an exaggeration), it probably needs some work.

First light upon
Your face I saw
First time I fell
Where it never hurt at all

Caught by a thing
Like a door unto the wall
Of course I don't mind
It's kept me enthralled

And I never thought I'd be able to live this point of view
I guess it's lucky I'm never myself in front of you

Worst thought I've thought
I thought of losing you
But worse was that call
When I learned that thought came true

I cursed everything
Cause it had to be at fault
I cursed everything

Because I never thought I'd ever have to live this point of view
And I've lost all of my chances now to be in front of you
