about

I wrote this this afternoon. It's a sort of fusion between Blues/Funk/Country. Not in that order.

This isn't mastered or anything just my usual mixing chain stuff.

Track Name: Big Strong Words (Ain't Gotta Be Heard)
You think I'm freaky
For walking in the rain
But I ain't ever turning back
I ain't losing you again

You think I’m so messed up
But you seem to take to your time
Understanding situations
Know that hating is a crime

And big wheels turn
Your mind’s left floating
WHen you’re lost without a compass
It’s an ending your writing

Sold that same soul
You made a buck on before
The devil’s in the detail
The demon’s craving more

And you think you've got
Something to say
You've got your poetry
And Your speeches have been made
There’s no point hiding
Behind big strong words
Cos if they've got no meaning
They ain't gotta, they ain’t gotta be heard

You wanna make out
Like i'm some bad guy
Take out that frustration
On the apple of your eye

I’m like a rock crushing paper
On the end of a losing hand
I’ve seen the list
And I reject you demands

And you think you've got
Something to say
You've got your poetry
Your speeches have been made
There’s no point hiding
Behind big strong words
Cos if they've got no meaning
They ain't gotta be heard

What you gonna do
When it catches up with you
Excuses dont mean much to me
And my love it ain't a currency

And you think you've got
Something to say
You've got your poetry
Your speeches have been made
There’s no point hiding
Behind big strong words
Cos if they've got no meaning
They ain't gotta be heard
And you think you've got
Something to say
You've got your poetry
Your speeches have been made
There’s no point hiding
Behind big strong words
Cos if they've got no meaning
They ain't gotta be heard
