checkers + dots

Ok, ok. I am the worst at completing music I’ve started. Partly because of the perfectionist side of me, and partly because sometimes I feel completely inadequate in the recording process.

Well, I know I’ve said this before, but for realssss this time. I am going to finish my first album this year. I’ve got the material, I just need to bunker down and complete it.

In effort to hurdle my first obstacle, the need for perfection…here is a incredibly rough tracking of one of the songs that will go on the album. Check it out & soon a good recording will follow.

I am lyricist first and foremost, so here are the lyrics for your reading pleasure!

//Checkers + Dots// (c)Lindsey Brenner 2010

These seams seem to me
To be breaking me
With the stitching
You’ve been bewitching
Binding me, tying me
To the dreams that just don’t belong to me

Like a boy’s patch, attached
Expect and ask
The patterns of this world
Checkers and dots
Squiggles and crisscross

These seams seem to me
To be breaking me
With the stitching
You’ve been bewitching
Binding me, tying me
To the dreams that just don’t belong to me

Like a maiden’s corset, molded
Expect and mask
The textures of the time
Velvet and silk
Leather and wooden
