Letter to a younger me before I asked for some help I needed. It's gotten a little less dark.


Started out rerecording a song (more of a riff really) I'd recorded 8 years ago on a built in laptop mic. Only kept the underlying chords, and then went with a sound kinda inspired by the song cowpoke. Crickets admittedly feel a little hokey but they kinda feel right too.


Guitar, banjo, some old recorded sounds and loads of whispy synth bois

Lyrics:

You seem in such a rush

to dig your own grave

better to be a burnout

if you can't be saved


These lines aren't so clear

the shadows so stark

make it through to the solstice

I think it gets less dark


I think it gets less dark

I think it gets less dark

Wow, this is very ambient, and nostalgic, and relaxing! The vocals sound very nice as well! I truly enjoyed this track overall!

10/10 would cry in a train station on this

<3 nice

Sounds really nice my guy.
