Wish i could organize my pieces into folders/categories on here. maybe i should email admin about that? i could put poetry in one, songs into their respective albums, random drabbles in another, novel-related stuff in another...
well, it is what it is. this song will be part of an EP (in my head, at least) called "Cliches"

Searching for Cliches [Partial Lyrics]

[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.
