Still I Don't Know How To Get Out of Bed (AKA The Bed Song)

Note: People who have known me for a while will have seen different lyrics to this song. The reason for changing them is simple: I was 18. Those lyrics sucked. These suck less.

Another hazy morning, another half-dreamt song
We will never trust each other while something can go wrong
I can’t forget my feelings or remember what you said
Still I don’t know how to get out of bed

If the end has passed, the beginning must be near
Should I spread across the earth or build my tower here?
There’s too little that I know and too much that I’ve read
Still I don’t know how to get out of bed

Love is cool, love is fine, love is a splintered thing
Love is beyond space and time, love is adrenaline
Love is the question and the answer, but that’s all in my head
Still I don’t know how to get out of bed

Do you have music for that? It's very good!

Why yes I do. It's essentially based around an A, D, C, Em, D chord progression - pretty simple (which could mean I've subconsciously ripped it off from somewhere, although I'm not admitting that's the case).

"Those lyrics sucked. These suck less."

That's a big claim Troy. This is also a compliment of sorts.

I'd love to hear the song to music at some point! Got it recorded at all? I'd love to hear it!

If not, can you email me the written lyric/chord version? And soem vague idea of rhythm?

I'll see what I can do.
