WSP_0261_You Always

from by Jonathan Burks



This song is a result of my 'finish what you started' writing project wherein I workshop and complete (or toss) whatever song scraps I've started but didn't finish in the last 10 to 15 years. The bulk of my 'singer-songwriter' song-posts from the last 2 or 3 years have been the result of this project. I'm finally wrapping it up. I've got another 10 or so I'd like to finish before the end of summer. This one turned out pretty great.


you weren’t my first, you weren’t my last
you weren’t the crown jewel of my checkered past
still your memory is slow to fade
I will miss you always

I don’t do shoulda coulda beens
if thens don’t mess with my head
I know everything’s in its place
still I miss you always

we did the things you do
when in the throes of youth
you were the one a time or two
and I will miss you always

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here:

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!
