Song: Maybe

FAWM 2022

Album: FAWM 2022
Track: #28

Today was a serious struggle. I mostly just had a hard time even getting into the mood to make music, so, while I've almost never noticed any correlation to how I feel after writing a song with how good it actually is or isn't, my feeling right now is that I'm running out of steam and scraping the bottom of the barrel.

That being said, a lot of things about this are really nice, so I think objectively it's just another one that might just take some time. While amazing songs do come out in just an hour or two sometimes, it's unreasonable to expect that they'll all be perfect in the first go. It takes some time to get used to the song and maybe make adjustments and improvements.

The bridge music was actually the first chord progression and melody I had played around earlier in the session and couldn't come up with anything for, then it turned out to work really well for a bridge. Side note: instead of "maybe" I kept only wanting to sing "green beans" there ??, though I did have some attempted with lyrics that used "please," "believe," "grieve" ... but none of them felt like they led to a song I wanted to write.

Anyway, without further ado, here's "Maybe."

Maybe I'll know what my goals are
Maybe I'll just leave my old job
Maybe I'll start at the bottom
Maybe I'll receive a gold star

Maybe I can get no closer
Maybe I will be imposed on
Maybe I cannot control them
Maybe I won't get my hopes up


Maybe I'll start at the bottom
