FAWM #3: That's Just How They Roll

This one was a blast to write.  It was based on a driving guitar riff that I’ve had in my head for a couple of years, now.  In fact, I recorded it as a short little one minute idea, and I found it the other day when I was reconnecting my studio.

I was just thinking about how much fun my two kids often have with each other, and how they used to ride together on Jake’s wheelchair.  They would spin around at top speed, doing donuts on the park grass.  Jake would be bouncing around and laughing his head off.

The FAWM challenge is really just about first drafts, right?  They don’t have to be perfect out of the gate, do they?  I can see a few spots where the lines need to be teaked a little bit, but then, that’s kind of like the kids themselves, innit?

That’s Just How They Roll
For Jacob and Brendon

He likes to play games with his brother, and
He likes it when the chocolate’s sweet, and
He wishes he could run like any other
But in his chair they go flying down the street

Don’t need to fight, don’t need to be told
Spinning left and right, that’s just how they roll
That’s just how they roll

He fights to play the game on his own, but
He likes it when his brother helps him win
He likes to spend time by himself, but
He loves it when they’re home again

His brother jumps on the chair and grabs a hold
They fire it up and like lightning - off they roll
That’s just how they roll

He’s like an angel without wings
Who fell out of heaven by no fault of his own
And though sometimes he can be a little devil
I’m still amazed at the ways he’s grown

Time goes on and I get feeling old
But I still feel like a kid when I watch them roll
That’s just how they roll
