Lyrics

Drizzle filled

Nights like these

Made for desperate poetry

 

Moon hangs high

As I reach

She embraces me

 

Restlessness

I can’t sleep

My mind is unreeling

 

Voices soft

Dulcet tone

I can’t shake this feeling

 

Dark creeps in

Heartbeats make a deafening din

 

I hammer out these chords

As I wail my soul drips forth

Buried in these words

The tell tale sign of an inner war

 

Autumn leaves

Hang from the tree

Swaying in the breeze

 

Heard her voice

Cross the sea

I picture her with ease

 

Canvas of emptiness

My cold white ceiling

 

What once was said

Brought disbelief

But baby, I believe it

 

Dark creeps in

Heartbeats make a deafening din

 

I hammer out these chords

As I wail my soul drips forth

Buried in these words

The tell tale sign of an inner war

 

Empty words carry little weight now

Empty words carry little weight now

I told my part, torn apart

Better days are yet to come

I told my part, I broke her heart

Pray for nights like these

 

I hammer out these chords

As I wail my soul drips forth

Buried in these words

The tell tale sign of an inner war

 

I hammer out these chords

As I wail my soul drips forth

Buried in these words

The tell tale sign of an inner war

(Drizzle filled nights like these

Caught in this torrential downpour

Drizzle filled nights like these

Caught in this torrential downpour)

Drizzle Daze was written in the haze of a rainy night. 

It's evolved over the years into the song that it is today and It still remains a super fun song to play. I hope that you enjoy listening to it just as much as I did recording it. 

 

I wrote the lyrics in this sleepless, restlessness moment in the quiet of the evening. You could just hear the pitter-patter of raindrops, the quiet voices of neighbours or people on the street outside and the sound of my own heartbeat in the dimly lit room. I wanted to capture the imaginings that happen as you lie there in a waking moment, staring at a blank white ceiling. 

 

The chorus and song itself starts from the idea of writing a song. It literally describes that process; getting chords together and wailing along. 

I wanted to give you an idea of my song-writing process and describe the moments of wrestling with emotions, melodies, concepts and ideas to form a whole song. 

What do you do when you can't sleep at night? What do you think of Drizzle Daze, what's your favourite element in the song? Let me know in the comments below.
