Song Spotlight: Not What I Expected

not what I expected
Posted by admin Category: Song Tag: , ,

This song I wrote in 2013 artists I had been vibing to at the time were Michael Kiwanuka etc.

Lyrics:

It’s been a while since I’ve allowed myself to be. Still frames lost in a memory.
The exception swallows up the norm. Same old story told in a different form.

A gateway left unguarded is your eyes. Always yearning lovesick lullabies.
We left each other in the rain. Let it fall. Wash away my pain.

The sun will rise again.

It’s not quite what I expected and it seldom ever is. You started off as mine but you ended up as his.
Sorry if I’m cold but I can’t let down my guard. Loving you was easy, letting go is hard.

Sometimes I feel static and on hold. A disconnect that’s foreign to my soul.
The rain comes down heavier at these times. Just forget it. Take it as a sign.

The sun comes out to shine.

It’s not quite what I expected and it seldom ever is. You started off as mine but you ended up as his.
Sorry if I’m cold but I can’t let down my guard. Loving you was easy, letting go is hard.

Breathe me out I breathe you in, all the while I’m struggling, to get a sense of what you are.
Forget you, forget me, chapters of our history, the tallest tales we have to tell so well.

It’s not quite what I expected and it seldom ever is. You started off as mine but you ended up as his.
Sorry if I’m cold but I can’t let down my guard. Loving you was easy, letting go is hard.
