Fly

This song is about…. writing songs!

It's probably the strangest thing I've ever done in that everything else I've achieved in life has been the result of many hours of arduous practise, but songwriting is something I've never ever learned. It just sort of happens.

Literally at any point in time a melody can enter your mind and if you capture it (usually by humming it into your phone), you can turn it into a song.

I usually pluck out a matching baseline, put some chords to it, and then just write words telling a story in keeping with how the melody might make me feel.

I dunno. It seems to work…. :D

The song (rough draft):
