Liner Notes: 

This is pretty much my life - though I do try to let some things go. But most days it's a constant battle of "I have to finish this perfectly vs Oh crap - look what else needs to be done" I KNOW I cannot be the only one out there feeling like this!

Lyrics: 

The Battle Of OCD & ADD
(c) 2019
Deanna Sweidel

I have to get this right
But I see another task
My head, oh it is spinning
Why? Oh why you ask?

Oh having OCD and ADD
Make for a difficult life
I need order, so much order
But other projects cause me strife

I have to get this right
But there’s other things to do
But each task must be perfect
Oooo, look….that frame’s askew

Oh having OCD and ADD
Make for a difficult life
I need order, so much order
But other projects cause me strife

Everything in its place
Every place I must touch
Make such perfect order
Crap! I obsess too much

Oh having OCD and ADD
Make for a difficult life
I need order, so much order
But other projects cause me strife

Oh having OCD and ADD
Make life a total chore
I need order, so much order
Think I can hide it in a drawer?

Oh wow I have so much stuff to do and it just never ends. I'm going to be mopping the floors here in a little bit after I drink my coffee. Then I have ___ and ___ to do too, it just never ends. Good job on this.

I don't have OCD or ADD but I can still relate to this one in SO MANY ways.

This is so very relate-able for all artists, doubly for those with OCD and/or ADHD.

I'm reading this as a meta-song metaphor for all that goes on in this challenge. Fun!
