Polaroids – The Next Demo

Posted on

So I’m working away on the next demo from the Polaroids album, getting pretty close to finishing it, and it occurs to me that no one else has any idea that I’ve even started another demo.
Not necessarily the end of the world, of course, but I did say that I’d be posting notes from the writing/recording/creative process along the way…
So, with that in mind, allow me to introduce a little something I’m calling “Katydid” (in a naked play for an endorsement from Ortho Home Defense). Here are the lyrics.

katydid
what she did they won’t tell me
katy lies
underwater/fast asleep
fast asleep
dreaming deep

and are you fast enough to fly away
when the time for you comes?
are you still so young to take your wings
so close to the sun?
and when the wrecking ball finally comes for you
when the hour for you comes
will you go quiet or will you cry
that it’s not your time?

butterfly
flies in circles over me
butterflies
live a day/then they are free
then they’re free
she’s nothing to me

and are you fast enough to fly away
when the time for you comes?
are you still so young to take your wings
so close to the sun?
and when the wrecking ball finally comes for you
when the hour for you comes
will you go quiet or will you cry
that it’s not your time?

katydid
what she did they won’t tell me
katy lies
katy lies

and are you fast enough to fly away
when the time for you comes?
are you still so young to take your wings
so close to the sun?
and when the wrecking ball finally comes for you
when the hour for you comes
will you go quiet or will you cry
will you go quiet or will you cry
will you go quiet or will you cry
that it’s not your time?
