Track 3 off my upcoming album "The Sky's Exploding". I wasn't going to upload tracks before the album comes out, but I'm releasing it on the 31st so I kinda have to if I want to get all the tracks on newgrounds in 2019 since you can only upload like 4 songs a day.

This is the 2nd song I finished for FAWM and it's the last one I actually uploaded. Like Not Today, it was also an attempt at making new wave and I think I got closer but it still definitely isn't.

Here's what I wrote about it on FAWM, to save me time from having to basically retype the same shit:

"Unless it's a joke song, most of my songs are pretty moody and depressing, so I wanted to change things up and write a happy song for once, because sometimes I do feel happy, but a lot of the time it's just easier to wallow in the negative, so of course that just naturally got worked into the lyrical themes of the song. Pretty happy with this one."

Which is funny to read now because I'm not pretty happy with this, probably my least favorite song on the album because I just can never get the fucking verse vocals right, if I could though, then yeah, it'd be good.

Coming back to this song recently to re-record the vocals was interesting because I was just in such a different situation when I wrote it. I no longer have a job because i had to move and now no one will hire me, and I'm just in a much worse situation overall, but that's just how things be.

LYRICS

Something strange
Happened to me
I felt a change,
What could it be?

I feel so happy
For once I can see
Oh god everything's
So clear to me

And I can finally
Get things done
And I can finally
Have some fun

'Cause I can focus
For once
And I know this
Isn't done

I woke up today
But it felt like a dream
I felt more than okay
What does this really mean?

It happened so fast
I feel so good
How do I make this last?
I really wish I could

I thought all my fears
Would come true
But now I'm here
Because of you

In fact, my fears
Have mostly ceased
It's become clear
At least to me

That they didn't
Really mean anything
And I now
Have the chance to sing

About how I
Got this way
I got a job
So now I feel okay

I woke up today
But it felt like a dream
I felt more than okay
What does this really mean?

It happened so fast
I feel so good
How do I make this last?
I really wish I could

'Cause things aren't good
At least not right now
How did it get like this?
I wish I knew how

I wish I could stay,
Not have to wait and see
I just wanna run away
But I can't escape me

And I can't seem
to find my way
Even though things
should be going okay

Things are going good
But I can't see
I wish I could
I know that I'm a better me

Yes, most days
I feel so bad
I'll hide away
Everything I've had

But I now have
The chance to see
What really is
A better me

And I've waited
For so long
And now I've made
A happy song

'Cause some times
I can feel good
I'd make it last
Oh, I wish I could

I woke up today
But it felt like a dream
I felt more than okay
What does this really mean?

It happened so fast
I feel so good
How do I make this last?
I really wish I could

I wish I could feel good
