Description
I seem to go through phases where I'm bereft of musical ideas and just don't get that urge to pick up the guitar for days at a time. Anyway, it seems to have passed and here's a new song I came up with, writing lyrics last week and recording guitar, bass and vocals over the weekend.

Thanks for listening

cheers
Phil

Lyrics
Treading Water

Just a little girl
Trying to find her place
In a world that keeps on changing
A world that won’t slow down
Treading water’s not enough to get you through

Just a little girl
Who was running out of time
To define her contribution
And make a difference to our lives
Treading water’s not enough to get us through

Caught up in a trap
You took a moment to look back
No retraction or freeze-frame action
You kept your head and worked it out
Could treading water be enough to see you through

Just a little girl
Trying to stay afloat
On a restless stormy ocean
As the waves come crashing down
Treading water’s not enough to get you through

Now lines upon your face
No more time to run that race
With the odds so stacked against you
From the beginning to the end
Treading water’s not enough to get you through

nice work phil
nice harmonies. the chord progression reminds a little bit of a mccartney
style ballad back in the early beatle days. its fustrating when you want to
create something and nothing comes. when you least expect. bam!
nice job!

Born and bred in Liverpool and like most kids from that place got my first guitar as a young teenager (in the late 60s). I've been dabbling with a guitar or two ever since and couldn't imagine life without one. I've never had any musical training (pr... [see more]
