Sometimes when I write lyrics – they become a bit too close and a bit too honest to be comfortable. A friend of mine recently died and I just wrote about it…. and yeah… It’s scary to open up that chapter and look – really LOOK at what happened, honestly and without wrapping it in some nice sounding BS – and then, write it down to be sung in a song that will be listened too by all that knew him.
I keep wanting to censor myself – but I feel that that would be wrong, his story deserves to be told.
His story, in the language of music, started with the song “Just Smile“.
