Searching for Cliches [Partial Lyrics]

February 27, 2021

FREE WRITING

3


[VERSE 1]
Sometimes we search for cliches
Wrap ourselves in their familiar embrace
We say it’s repulsive, we want nothing to do with it
But we come back and back every time we crave their touch

[CHORUS]
So I’m searching for cliches
That fit like a second skin
Metaphors I can drown myself in
Watch the same scenes over and over again
‘Cause I’m afraid of what lies outside
My precious cliches
I haven't finished this song, but it's about how we say we hate cliches, yet we feel comfortable in normalcy, in typical, routine manners and ideas.
And I do write songs that seem to be in the style of Sleeping At Last, so I guess you could say I aspire to be a combination of Sleeping At Last (AKA Ryan O'Neal), Taylor Swift, and... idk, other songwriters. Kelsea Ballerini, maybe.

    Okay TWO hit songs in one day?? Girl stahhhp. You're so freaking good at this. That chorus is so catchy even without music. Also I feel the Kelsea vibes and love it.

    Re: Thank you! What I meant about her being underdeveloped is that idk enough about her character (or his) yet to write more in a series about them (or just satisfy my mind).
