Description
This is the first song I've written for the February Album Writing Month challenge (http://www.fawm.org). It is kinda rushed and I really wasn't expecting to be so "cliché" in the opening but oh well. Actually... this is totally not my style of tune. I wonder if the challenge could be forcing me to write differently. So now that this tune is complete (somewhat), it's onto the next one. Only 13 more to go!

Lyrics
I woke up in a bad place
I saw you were gone
I found you and your sad face
You told me something was wrong

Wipe the tears from your eyes
It's not us, it's the look of the starry sky
The sun and the moon just aren't right
We have to hold on - please don't say goodbye

We're just fine, we don't get a long in February
Please, just calm down, all this talk is unnecessary now

You think I am a nut case
And in that you are right
'cause I'm crazy about you
On this cold winter night

Hold my warming hands close
It's not us, it's about the cosmic rays
It's the cold and the lack of day light
But it only lasts for 28 days

We're just fine, we're only fighting 'cause it's February
Wait, in one month, tonight will seem so arbitrary then

Sounds cool!
Got a bit of a 70s feel here. especially with the keys. I feel the guitar could be a bit louder in the mix to compiments the vocals more. But this is a great effort. Well done.

Thanks!
Thanks ajnorth!

I really like the keyboards of the 70's... they're just not used much today. I'm not a very good guitar player, hence why I tend to leave it low in the mix... the solo though (made from loops) could be a little higher for sure now that I listen.

I wish...
Thanks mcboy... yeah... when i heard it, I thought there might be a Yes song coming but to my disappointment there wasn't! I agree about the "what doesn't kill you..." comment. Unfortunately I'm still quite a ways away from the finish line.

28 days
Great track. i think deadlines do force you to create in a different style. Its not for everyone, but it does create a go with the moment type of flavor.
Some fine singing and strong playing all around. The solo is looped? How did you get it to slam home so well? perfect fit

like how the
rock organ starts, kinda makes me go back to the Allmann Bro. Band.

Thanks for the singing and playing!
