Sagittarius Song

about

A transitional song. "Sagittarius Song" is the last song I wrote in my 20s, and has been kicking around in some form or another for about 8 years. It felt important for me to finish it, as a way to close out the last batch of songs and begin a new one. Everything you hear on this track was recorded at my home studio in Santa Fe, NM. More, different music to come in 2019.

lyrics

I lied!
When I said that I wanted to stay here and see this thing through
But I tried!
I half-tried...
...alright, when I said that I tried, I was still lying to you

25 years and I still feel exactly the same
I don't want whatever I've got
I don't want a reason to stay
I want to start something... and then just walk away

And I might!
I might have one foot so far out the door that I can't see my shoes
So tonight is the last night
And I wanted to say it for so long, but something got lost
Something got lost on the wire with your tone so casually cross
So no one gets anything off

... or did you get off?
Did you get off on the sound of your own voice telling me off
... but still sounding so soft?

25 years and I still feel exactly the same
I want it, it's here, and I still feel exactly the same
The audience cheers and I still feel exactly the same
It all ends in tears and I still feel exactly the same

25 years and I still feel exactly the same
I want it, it's here, and I still feel exactly the same
The audience cheers and I still feel exactly the same
You disappear and I still feel exactly the same!
