I’ll try not to succumb to superstition: 2012 was a great year for me generally and the songs came easily, Let’s hope I can keep it up!
Here’s one I wrote at the end of December just before the Christmas song. It’s based on a little guitar thing that had been hanging around for a while and suddenly worked as a song. The words are a pretty upbeat way to tell someone you’re off into the mountains they’d probably result in a physical attack if you said it this way – odd how things come over differently in a song.
It’s nice and simple to play live too – I floor spotted it the week I wrote it and realised I had a good pacy one which was fun to finish a set on. Oh and Carol if you read this it’s not about you darlin’ – I’m going nowhere!
