New Song: Procrastination

posted in: Music 0

 

TomorrowI get a lot done, but every once in a while, I procrastinate. I had a huge, self-imposed project that I knew I needed to get done, but I just wasn’t feeling it.

At all!

As my procrastination dance was occurring, I took a long hard look at my lack of motivation and I wrote this song. Even the act of writing this song took forever! It was as though the song was tied into the project, and I needed to immerse myself in both before things would be resolved. I’m so glad I got this one out, and I’m happy to say I’m knee-deep in the project now.

I wrote this with a tango inspired rhythm to echo the dance. My first draft was written on the guitar but I kept hearing piano in my head so I shifted instruments.

Enjoy~

 

Procrastination

I’m too busy
It can wait
It’s not very witty
And Mercury’s in retrograde
Maybe I’ll start tomorrow
Or the day after that
Maybe I need more info
Or just another snack

Emancipation?
Legalization?
What am I waiting for?
Clarification?
Reincarnation?
Oh Procrastination

It’s too risky
I’m too late
It’s not very pretty
And certainly a masquerade
Maybe I’ll start tomorrow
Or the day after that
Maybe I need more info
Or just another snack

Emancipation?
Legalization?
What am I waiting for?
Clarification?
Reincarnation?
Oh Procrastination

Funny how much I can get done
When I’m avoiding something else
Helps shore up my excuses
So I feel better about myself

Emancipation?
Legalization?
What am I waiting for?
Clarification?
Reincarnation?
Oh Procrastination
Oh Procrastination
