Dear listener,

This is a naked version of my song "I Don't Know Why Or Where I Went Wrong" from my upcoming EP.

When I'm done with it, it will be drowning in delays and drums and noise and all sorts of things, but since I'm not done yet this is a peace offering.

I hope you like it.



I don't know why
Or where I went wrong
I said to myself
This could all go so well
I thought today
Might be the one
Where things wind up my way.

Got booked by a cop
Spent the night in a cell
I admit to myself
I'm not doing so well
I thought tonight
Might be the one
Where things wind up alright.

My clothing's all torn
My circuits are fried
My girl kicked me out
She says I tell her lies
I said "babe, I'm in love",
She said "Yeah, with yourself
Now get out of my bed"

I'll dig myself out,
I'll get back into line
I'm not of old money
Of frills or black ties.
I've never known wealth
And I don't yet know how
But I'll get there myself.
