Halfway Through This Thing [demo]

fan club exclusive

about

This was one of the songs that I wrote at the farmhouse one day before the band showed up. It was a gift-song that came to me almost in one sitting.... my very favorite kind. <3

This is still in the demo phase (scratch guitar and vocals, and there are some errors in the lyrics) but I wanted to share it with you guys anyway. Little by little we're getting there!

lyrics

how much time did I waste
missing a person or a place
when I was never really gone
'cause I was always hanging on

stuck somewhere in the past
trying to make some feeling last
when i should really let it go
you'd think by now, i'd know

'cause i'm about halfway through this thing
but still trying to figure out
what to carry, what to leave behind
and what i can do without
i'm about halfway through this thing
i'm about halfway through this thing

an emotional pack rat
i carried my whole life on my back
in my mary poppins bag
but now i'm waving the white flag

'cause i'm about halfway through this thing
and still trying to figure out
what to carry, what to leave behind
and what i can do without
i'm about halfway through this thing
i'm about halfway through this thing

and i was sure that there'd be some kind of fallout
but i was well-prepared, like any good girl scout
ready to battle back all of the doubt
hold my ground here in my hideout

and i'm about halfway through this thing
and still trying to figure out
what to carry, what to leave behind
and what i can do without
i'm about halfway through this thing
i'm about halfway through this thing
i'm about halfway through this thing

and still learning as i go
still learning as i go
i'm still learning as i go
