Always Missed

from by Jonathan Burks

lyrics

in love and life I've often tossed
myself into the flame
failing and flailing like a pig
on the spit of only me to blame

now I'm trying to have hope
untie these ropes
maybe give myself the slip

but it's hard to believe you can hit the target
when your heart has always missed

these days I'm reflecting on things that I've done
choking on stuff that I said
pride, bile and bitterness
are tough stuff to keep down and digest

I'm trying to forget
the loss and regret
maybe next time I'll get a grip

but it's hard to believe you can hit the target
when your heart has always missed

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!

Jon
