Song-Not-So-Weekly #32: Shoulda Been

So I haven't been keeping up with the Song-A-Weeks much. I might be done. I don't know. I've been having a DARNED hard time coming up with stuff. Its a lot harder to sit down with a guitar and hammer out a song than it used to be, probably because I used to store up my good ideas for a longer period of time, whereas now, they're gone about as fast as I get em.

Well, here's a rough idea called "Shoulda Been."

Shoulda Been
Copyright 2007 Matthew C Good

It's just another day in the warzone
with comforting soldiers,
But it's hard to hate what you don't mind.

With every step I take,
I am careful to narrow my eyes.

Cameron tells me what I shoulda been
Says if I was smart I would listen
But I don't put much stock now it what he says
It's just another hairbrained suggestion
and I've already been through them in my head.


So yeah - eh, i'm just putting it out there. I don't think this song will find a home for a long time.

I like the intro. And I like the first verse. I have no idea who cameron is though. Is it a vonnegut reference? Cameron Bergeron? Anyway, the melody on the verses reminds me of "Friend, If You Won't Listen"...but I don't know...there could be something here. I'd probably just keep the intro. It would sound good for a very Toronto sounding song and by Toronto I mean The Most Serene Republic, Broken Social Scene, Apostle of Hustle, Stars, Metric, Do Make Say Think, etc.
