Story

This song is a blues based melody. I'd been fooling around with some Clapton unplugged style chord voicings and the story simply unfolded for me. I've found that guys like the "beat" of the music and women listen to the words, generally, more closely. This one has a little bit for both!

Lyrics

 

It's gonna take a little time, a little time to understand The very nature of my crime, in living my life as I'd planned. The road I've taken is the one less often traveled, generally. When everything is said and done, my only crime was being me.

Rules put up walls around our hopes and our dreams. Lawa to protect abound, or so it seems. But as for me this life has been a slow and steady uphill climb. The struggle I am trying to win is gonna take a little time

Every morning starts the same. My mirror image stares at me. The first move of a brand new game, that never ends in victory. And yet I play it any way, accept my fat, my thorny crown. It gets me through another day and it's the only game in town.                                                                                                                                             

Rules put up walls around our hopes and our dreams. Laws to protect abound, or so it seems. But as for me this life has been a slow and steady uphill climb. This struggle I am trying to win is gonna take a little time.
