tomorrow

This is a song I was feeling last night. It was really warm yesterday and I spent a good amount of it driving with the windows down. To top that off, usually only the left front speaker of my car works, but like a gift my right one popped in for the entire day. That = louder music (plus, a popular recording technique is called hard panning, and that means a guitar/vocal/other track is put entirely in one speaker and taken completely or mostly out of the other. Which can make a song sound richer when you have both speakers, but can ruin a song if you’re missing one). I had a really good day and I was wearing a skirt which made it feel like the precipice of spring. I was feeling mellow and hopeful, and this was a rewarding little ditty to write. It’s been a long February. It’s been a cold front.

tomorrow

i’m fairly sure i’m in love with her
she makes it easy to decide
i can forget the words she said when she was sore
if she can forget mine

it’s been a long february
it’s been cold front
tomorrow i’m gonna get on my knee and ask her to marry me.

i’m gonna make her a promise
i’m gonna say, “woman, i promise never to leave”
i’m afraid of my heart though
i’m afraid that it won’t always feel consistently

it’s been a long february
it’s been a cold front
tomorrow, tomorrow i’m gonna get on my knee and ask her to marry me
and if she won’t then…i don’t know.
