The loneliest of lonely…

This next tune of mine is one of my personal favourites. As I mentioned in a previous post, I am not one to write a song about myself; I may take certain thematic elements such as love, loss, or destruction from my life and experiences, but will ultimately write a story about someone or something else.  This time around, I wrote a song that is a little closer to home. As someone who struggled with a mental illness, I know how tough coping with reality can be, and this song is just about that. Long story short, this song is about a schizophrenic boy whose best friend is an imaginary man who takes an umbrella with him everywhere he goes. And one day, he just disappears… So the boy is just left with his thoughts as he copes with his predicament. This is also the first song where I started using my delay pedal and fell in love with the empty, spacey feel it portrayed and how it complimented the rest of the song. So please take a listen! As always, the quality isn’t necessarily the best but using headphones does make it sound a tad bit better.

  1. Great song with a real interesting and quite touching message. I feel bad for not looking at your music section sooner, Sorry for not writing in a while, have been a little busy focusing on my newly found interest on falconery and repairing an Xbox. Will make a mental note to listen to your tracks the next time I can write an article, seeing as good music helps me write.
