if you haven’t had a chance to check out the last co-write I did, stop by and listen to “Dear Theseus” at my soundcloud acct.
It’s timely to have a creative project going on right now as I’m in all sorts of transitions and it’s great to have some juicy art to play with.
Thought it turned out pretty sweet and he (the other artist) wrote with another song in mind, so i’m back at it.

working on this sad ass co-write.
i haven’t done a sad song in forever.
i usually take my sad songs and make them kinda happy i guess.
cognitive dissonance is a form of denial, though i saw it as coping and reframing thoughts. so i don’t know anymore.
i’m just going with what makes my body and mind feel life,
and so this song somehow transpired with my collaborator.

he wanted the theme to be a blue rose heartache theme.
check it out here

so i wrote:
—————

Blue Rose Games

He brought me a blue rose each day that week
he’d either leave them in the doorway
or throw them at my feet.
i don’t know how they got to be so blue
but the story in their veins only made me wish for you.

so we played a game of tic tac toe
and i wondered where’d that motherfucker go
then we played a game of scissors, paper, rock
and i wondered why does this blue rose mock

(chorus)
a rose is a rose is a rose is a rose is a rose
but no rose is like you

it’s like when you’re a school girl and you play the game
to find the name
of whom you’ll marry and with whom you’ll sleep
you can count to 4 or 8
to declare determined fate
oh oh oh i know
the games that we’d play

like
does he love me or does he love me not
if these roses were red then at least I’d feel hot
does he love me of does he love me not
if these roses were red we’d be bumpin in my bed

(chorus)

but you play differently
it keeps me on my knees
i don’t know why
but these roses make me cry for you
You play differently
it keeps me on my knees
red roses would grow
wherever we would go

the games that we’d play

(chorus)
