Too Young (auntie-sin challenge)
Here is the next entry in the auntie-sin challenge, which strangely enough, I began. I'm not crazy about this song even though it took me a long, long, long time to get to it. I had a little break because of workload and it was hard to get back into it.
Resisted my usual urge to harmonize over any flaws.
The songs from @wobbie wobbit and @barbara that I had to work with were both quite good, different from each other but with quite a bit in common once I got down to it. I smushed together a lot of their themes and chords and such. Check them out and you will likely be able to hear the synthesizing in action.
We are too young for the great responsibility
And I am a son of the water and the light
Yet we’re too old not to know what we’ve been given
Take it back once we’re done with all this living
We’ve been passed
Our better selves
Turning round and round
A perfect shell
We can’t decide what to plant or whether we should grow
Lessons learned and unlearned, pages burning
We’re throwing stones against the sea, drowning in victory
Watch for moments in the scene, in between
Never been ourselves
We are found, found, found
And all is not well
Weeds and wires, a bridge on fire
A nest of threads we pulled
We’d like to lay our heads down for a while
We are too proud for the doubt in our reality
And I am undone by the darkness in this light
We are too wise not to know what’s on the inside
Give it back once we’ve asked for alibis
Our solemn future
The rest will be will be
Against this picture
We’ve been warned
Against the future
The rest will be, will be... will be, will be
