Song: Up High

FAWM 2019

Album: FAWM 2019
Track: #2

This one has a lot of things in it I really like, but I wouldn't say it felt good to write. It did kind of just flow out though, so I'll probably figure out what it means along with you guys. :)

The last "chorus" was also supposed to be "Get a lot" instead of "Give a lot" but I accidentally said "Give" when recording, and it was already a hundred billion takes, so I just changed the song. :-D

The bridge reminds me of a popular song, but I can't figure out what. Feel free to comment an idea if you have one.

Get a lot for a little you know
Whatever I can find
Up high, up high

Penny a pop for the ditty you know
Play me yours and I'll play you mine
Up high, up high

Me I live for what I give you
You don't see me, no
The branches on my tree will start to grow

You rake the leaves that fall around you
There's nowhere to go
You're folding paper airplanes for the show

Get a lot for a little you know
Whatever I can find
Up high, up high

Penny a pop for the ditty you know
Play me yours and I'll play you mine
Up high, up high

You don't thank me for what I give you
But you don't say no
And I hear it through the treetops when you groan

The wind just might betray you
But it hustles me, chapeau
Telling me the story
Of this poor neglected soul
Who ran away when his forgiveness
Tossed his caution to the forge

Give a lot for a little you know
Whatever I can find
Up high, up high

Penny a pop for the ditty you know
Play me yours and I'll play you mine
Up high, up high
