The Abbreviators

Recommended Posts

I don't know how far I'll go with documenting the whole writing/recording process but I thought it might be fun to share how some of these songs are starting out. So, I'll begin with All My Friends; here's the demo version, just vocals and acoustic guitar, nothing fancy ... not even played to a metronome so it's a bit wonky tempo wise. Lyrics below the video:

 

 

 

Even though you don’t know, I’m here talking to your ghost

A warm embrace and pleasantries, making up old memories

Of razor wit, no beat was missed

Young life and love feigned to exist

So, even though you don’t know, I’m here grasping for your soul

 

All my friends spill out on the pavement

All my friends so beautiful

All my friends whisper from the shadows

All my friends always waiting for me

 

Even though you don’t know, I’m here talking to your ghost

A warm embrace and pleasantries, making up new tragedies

Of razor wit, no beat was missed

Young life and love feigned to exist

So, even though you don’t know, I’m here grasping for your soul

 

All my friends spill out on the pavement

All my friends so beautiful

All my friends whisper from the shadows

All my friends always waiting for me

 

I don’t want to die but it’s all I think about

Curiosity kills all but fascination

I let it all go wrong when you weren’t around

Now I’m clawing out at the walls of the grave I dug

And buried myself down in.

I liked it! looking forward to the full recorded version

I appreciate the listen, my friend! It's not great but it's a start. I think the tempo needs to be upped a bit, it drags.

Personally I think the tempo was perfect for the chorus, I believe that with the right arrangement the verses would be a great fit as well.
