WEEK 5…Hozier replacement song

Well, another week another song!

My biggest issues in creating a mood with my music are my musical limitations with both my vocals and guitar playing! I apologize for the occasional rough note or two!

I started this song with the lyrics. I wanted to write about falling in love/lust with someone who may appear to be beautiful in so many ways but there is something dark about them. Kind of how I imagine Christina Ricci will be portrayed. I hope you enjoy the song!

NEVER BE CLEAN

You Call me to your river
muddy waters cloud my view
of the danger that is lurking right below
I want to wash away my sins
to be baptized by you
but the water, the water is dirty and cold

I could never be clean
I could never be clean
but this is where I long to be
you surrounding me

I can see through the curtains
the darkened image of your truth
distorted by the beautiful stained glass
But all the light in the day
couldn’t shine it’s way through
the shadow, the shadow that you cast

I could never be clean
Could never be clean
but this is where I long to be
you surrounding me

Snakes and ladders
never know where they’re gonna lead
I’ll take my chances
I’m prepared to bleed

I could never be clean
Could never be clean
but this is where I long to be
you surrounding me

I could never be clean
Could never be clean
but this is where I long to be
you surrounding me

Take a listen…
