FAWM #2: Me and My Guitar

I've been going through a sort of weird mid-life crisis these days.  I've been wondering what life's all about and refocusing my priorities a lot.  The role my music is taking in my life is shifting and settling.

Yes, I'm getting old.  :-P

Anyway, I can still rock.  And here's a song about how I used to do it, and how I do it now.

Me and My Guitar

My old friend is made of metal and wood
He’s always hung with me like a good friend should
We used to run together, we used to get out
And when we did, we’d scream and shout

I used to imagine my guitar an I
Would blast out our music up to the sky
And everyone around would stop and hear
And when we were done the whole world would cheer
And then thew whole world would know...


Me and my guitar
Me and my guitar
Me and my guitar
Me and my guitar

So many things gettin’ in my way
Too many things filling up my day
I hustle every morning to punch a clock
playin’ house, cookin’ dinner no time to rock

But my old friend, he is always there
To let off some steam or to ease my cares
Or a minute with my family to sing a song
And there’s nobody better that could sing along
And nobody else even hears...


 ...Even if nobody's listening to...

I have always found your efforts to sing praises to God, and to serve him with your music, to be inspirational. I see it as being worship, a kind of prayer. I believe that it rises up to God as a sweet savor. I think that is a good thing, but I fully understand the need to put things in their proper place. I am confindent that you will find that right balance.

Your Friend,

P.S. I like your new lyrics better than the lame ideas I present yesterday. Well done!
