This Weeks Batcave Files: Ghost Children of Calico performing his song “I Loved You Then as I Love You Now.”
My friend Matt talked me into playing one of my songs for his new video series. If you’ve ever wanted to see me very nervously play one of my songs, this is your chance. Thanks.
Ghost Children of Calico - “Alone All Night”
August 3, 2014
I think this pretty much sums up how I’ve been feeling lately. Increasingly depressed over the past couple weeks.
Alone All Night
I’ve got nothing now
There’s nothing for me
Except loneliness and a whole lotta misery
I thought things would work out
I thought it would be alright
Now all I do is sit alone all night
I think of you all the time
Time will surely pass
It’s passing every day
But it’s all a blur since you went away
I’m just like shattered glass
I can’t shine no more
Well, I could try, but I don’t see what for
I wrote and recorded a song last night/today.
I started last night, but my computer is crappy and some tracks ended up out of sync for some reason. So, I finished it today. The whole song and recording is pretty terrible, really, but I’ll get a mix finished and post it soon anyway. I need to record one of the many real songs I’ve written over the past few months, but I’m too lazy. I really like those songs, so I’m scared to record them, if that makes sense.
Was bored at work today. Or yesterday, since it’s 4:18am and I’m still awake. Whatever. This is one of my famous cathead flowers.
Here’s a really old song of mine to tide you over until I post a new one.
Ghost Children of Calico - “You Just Don’t Know the Way”
I wrote and recorded this in 2005.
Why can’t I just magically transfer a completed song I’ve written from my head to audio recording without going through the trouble of recording it? It’s pretty frustrating.
This was me in bed, feeling like I was dying, trying to sleep while my air conditioner was broken and it was 90 degrees in the apartment last night. Long exposure, multiple mes. Sorry for the bare shoulder and everything else.
I wrote and recorded this song two years ago. It’s still one of my favorites. You should listen to it.
Ghost Children of Calico - “I’ll Want You (Till the Day I Die)”
July 21, 2012
This is the country song I referenced a few posts back (lyrics written on sticky notes). Finally recorded it today.
Ghost Children of Calico - “Hole in My Cup”
July 5, 2014
I wrote and recorded a song a few minutes ago. I think it’s the first song I’ve ever recorded while inebriated. Hopefully it’s not too bad.
Hole in My Cup
I’ve had a crush on you for oh so long
I’ve had a crush on you for years
Anytime i see your smiling face
I know you stand out from your peers
I’ve always wondered what it would feel like
To have you next to me
I imagine it would be as great
As sailing on the sea
I don’t know if you feel the same
I don’t know if you like me too
All i know is that this song is for you
I know I’ve got a checkered past
I’ve got a hole in my cup
But if you’d give me a chance
I’d do my best to not mess it up
