about

This track was originally composed on a loop pedal, then recorded in Garageband (so yes, it's a bit of a cheat).

lyrics

This is my frequency, and I will stay right here
Stay out of trouble
This is my radio, and this is how it goes
Make mine a double
Maybe then my words'll slur, I'll become a different girl
Something from a magazine, something they all tell me I should be:
Ideal, but not idealistic in red lipstick

N'doo n'dah dah dah dah dum...

This is my symphony and yeah it's silent now...
but I've got it on paper
And this is what I'll take the day I bend and break
And meet my maker
Maybe then my luck'll change into something rich and strange
I'll go fathom five or ten then I'll stop and do it all again
Life's fatal, but not fatalistic, so don't blink or you'll miss it

N'doo n'dah dah dah dah dum...
This is not how this should go!
This is not how this should play out!

I'll give you anything if you can show me
how to stop breaking my own heart
and learn to be free
