Evolution of a Song-Week Nine: Talking to Myself

Week nine started with a bit of doubt. Ok, a lot of doubt. "I have no ideas for songs, no melodies in my head (lies I was telling myself because I always have melodies in my head). How am I going to come up with a song?"

But here's the thing, thinking like that does 2 things: 1) NOTHING and 2)distracts from the actual sitting/doing/writing of the song. Instead of thinking about what I was going to do, I should have (and eventually did) just sat down and started working it out.

So when I did finally stop worrying in my head about this week's song, I sat down and wrote it in a couple hours. I had a melody with lyrics I was singing in my head for about a week but never sat down to see if it was anything. Turns out it is Week Nine, "Talking to Myself". (Which I do a lot by the way. I think it has something to do with hearing it out loud- clearly I am a very aural person).

Anywho, to be perfectly transparent here, sometimes I feel like I'm talking and nobody's listening. And I don't just mean talking in a conversation, but like the figurative talking. Like I'm invisible. No pity party here, it's just a feeling that pops up from time to time. I'm sure we all feel it sometimes...

So this song is about that. I think the lyrics are pretty self -explanatory. I love writing new songs because I get so excited about them and can't stop playing them. And now I have nine new songs to play:)
