WSP 046 Past Tense [Circle A]

from Weekly Song Project v1 by Jonathan Burks

/

lyrics

I write all of my love songs
in the past tense, pressing rewind
this pen is fluent in the prose of regret
I can only see when I'm looking behind

my mouth don't move to that rhyme scheme
my heart's never been able to keep time
my words have only made their way to paper
through loosing what they was trying to find

these hands have only traced a vague understanding
I've only brushed up against the light
every picture that I've ever painted
has got me standing looking in from inside

about

Jonathan Burks Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro"

here's some pro tips:

1) Keep a scream journal. Scream into a camera or microphone at least once a day. Any word or sound will work. "FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK" seems to work for me.

2) Dance for 5 minutes daily. Dance on the way to the bathroom or kitchen. Dance as ugly as you can.

3) Make funny faces. Sit in front of a mirror and get strange.
