ScoDal - I Want To Know
Instruments Used: Acoustic Bass Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, and Vocals
I always wanted a guitar but could never afford one. Finally, I had a job (at Burger King) and I went on Musician's Friend website and bought my first acoustic guitar. It's the same guitar I still have and use today. I think I was still a teenager when I wrote this. Anyway, this was the first song I recorded with my guitar and I didn't really know what I was doing. I was also sick at the time and my voice was raspy, which I liked so I pushed through it to record this in one sitting. Wow, that was a lot of information I slapped into one giant paragraph. If you made it this far reading, good for you haha…
I remember finding a MySpace page one time where this girl had quoted the lyrics from this song. That made me feel cool. I did not know the girl.
Edit 11-19-2019: So, I just read the lyrics to this song again and they really don't make any sense at all. It appears I was just rhyming whatever I could and a bunch of words happened.
The cold winds blast across my face. But I left you there, without a trace. I don't know why I feel so bad. Reality hits and I'm so mad. I've got so many reasons why. Don't know why I need to try. To Hide my life with a little lie, and act like I don't ever cry. Grab my things and proceed to go, to the places out there that you'll never know. Now what kind of man do I want to be, and how do I want the world to see me. Not like this no not so sad. Sitting in my head and I feel so glad. Seen this a thousand times before. Don't know if I can take it anymore.
I want to know. Please let me know. Just how you do it. And set aside your fears and disregard your tears. Just take it slow. I want to know. Please let me know. Just how you do it. And set aside your fears and disregard your tears.
The skies are dark and they're turning gray. All I have is just one more day. To show you why it'll never be. The things you want so bad for me. All we can do is hope for the best. Not enough time to get any rest. Too many things have been on my mind. Wish you would be just a little more kind. Hide my head in pain and sorrow. Waiting all day just for tomorrow. Feeling overlooked and never understood. I've always done the best that I could. You're so hard to please, what should I do? It's not like I ask a lot from you. Can't figure out why you never care. Can't figure out why you're never there.
