There's a gin @pfoo and I have had here in the house that supposedly contains gunpowder. They make it with a gunpowder tea. So of course I thought that should be in a song.
I wrote some lyrics and passed them to my friend Nancy, who made some changes to the lyric and composed a beautiful melody and piano part for this. I didn't want to add anything, it sounds complete.
Sometimes he remembers his dreams
sipping gunpowder tea
he goes here to be wide awake
Hunting down his memories
Killing hours down at the cafe
back to the wall
one eye on the door but he forgets
what he's watching for
this life's got nothing but teeth
dream of that while you sleep
far and away stare at the ceiling
waiting to one night feel a feeling
Half his life waiting for the bell
wagering every thing
half his life tired and pushing
trying to make it ring
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
