Good Morning Maida Vale
paid for a window when they sent me on the run
i packed nothing but the time for moving on
you lied to me cause it left me on my own
good morning life unlived
still don’t know how you sang to me but never to yourself
guess i won’t know why you’d reach for me but never want my help
stopped in the road i gave my blessings to the wind
making sense of what i can
peace with where i am
guess i’ve passed the time
i’ve started to be happy here
looked down and kicked the gravel
looked straight into my soul
and i know that it’s still snowing but i haven’t felt so cold since i left new york
good morning window pane
the sun spots
are warming me again
a very condensed songwriting process that happened in the pockets of time i had during a busy past two weeks. biggest of thanks to Z for helping me mix it at the eleventh hour 🏻
this is my first ever songwriting attempt! it was really hard to figure out what i wanted to do. a lot of ideas came up. i knew immediately london was my place and knew what i wanted to say about it, but it was hard to transform those ideas into song. im still learning to play guitar and don’t know how to mix music, so it was difficult to imagine how i would incorporate other instruments or transform the song in mixing. so it made sense to me to start with what i know. i found singing over the drone really enjoyable for exploring different melodic patterns as it kind of harnessed the creativity – keeping it around prevented me from getting lost in my range. i’m very proud of myself and grateful for this community.
dedicated to my time in london, in the sweet embrace of a neighborhood there called maida vale. a time where i left the US (my home for 20 years) and deleted my phone number and social accounts in order to find myself and a better way of living. while there, i found my way to my spirituality and higher power. i left behind parts of myself that prevented me from listening to my heart. alone in a new place, i was able to step out of that mold and into myself.
thanks for listening. wishing you warmth and wellness.
