Drugs won't save you now

from A bridge for burning by Dave McPherson



This is a song I wrote about a friend who had a real issue with drug abuse. I'm really pleased with the progressions & harmonies that surround the lead vocal in this.


Bloody and broken.
Guilty and selfish.
Everybody slags you off now.
Were you really meant for this?

You can see their skin turn from radiant to grey.

But the drugs cry…

Won't you say you'll stay.
At least stay for today.

Boring conversation
Change the music every minute
Birds mocking you outside
Close the blinds tight
This is a self-righteous hymn at myself
Still the drugs cry...

Music |ˈmyo͞ozik|
1 the art or science of combining vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.

Music is my life. An oft-used cliché yet nonetheless true for me. I've devoted most of my existence to exploring it in every way & in turn it has enabled me to travel the world & meet new friends all over.

Hope you like my sounds!
