Description
Quite an old song I wrote 10 years ago and recorded with a couple of mates, (Ian on tom tom’s and Nick on lead guitar) Just found it digging around in the archives. Hardly my best but thought I’d give it an airing up here!Recorded on Nick's Cubase set up of the time

Lyrics
The Serenity of Less

She
Said she’s going down to London
She’s
Going to find what it’s all about
I
I said well go if you want to
I
I wish you well


Dodge the splashes from a waterfall
Stand on your toes
Try to look tall
Open your eyes and look with surprise
But you can’t
See
The serenity of less

On a cold and rainy
Early morning field
I’m all alone
And the further I walk
And the more I talk
The further I am from
Home
The serenity of less

Cut and paste you
Out of my life
Your one less person
To trust
I’d like to say
That it’s Ok
But you know that it’s just my
Hiding from the hurt

The serenity of less

Love the groove
Reminds me a little of a relaxed Squeeze.

Nicely done. Sparse instrumentation works really well.

Cheers

I get the meaning behind the lyrics.....
and at the risk of offending hafta say I can't stand London City (Londoners are fine)....it is just too in your face for me.....so I stay in the serene sticks ...this song resonates like a twanged wooden ruler for me !

Cheers

I like the strummed acoustic, and nice lead break.
