In the Dark……

Not a very Christmas-y song.  🙂  But it’s kinda cool, if you like the heavy stuff.

It’s called “In the Dark”.  A friend of mine wrote it, and he let’s me steal his songs all the time.  His rendition was a bit less heavy.  When I heard it though, I heard Neil Young singing it.  So I tried to emulate that a bit – even cranking my amp as loud as I can and mic’ing it (I usually go direct with everything but vocals these days).  I love the tone!  But I don’t know if it sounds so much like Neil Young, maybe more grunge/metal/slop?  Either way – hope you enjoy!

Here are the lyrics, in case you can’t understand what I’m singing:

If I could change on my own,
I wouldn’t be here now
If I could make everything alright,
I’d be the last one to leave this world

After trying to calm the wake of my past
Trying to remove the stains on my heart
Exhausting myself, killing my soul,
Trying to find my way…..  In the dark….

I won’t pretend no more
That I’m a man without regrets
Things I’ve forgotten always seem
To come back to haunt me

After trying to calm the wake of my past
Trying to remove the stains on my heart
Exhausting myself, killing my soul
Trying to find my way…..  In the dark…..
