Not sure what this song is about. I was experimenting in writing with barre chords on this tune. Tried writing something with some funk to it.


Doing Time

I know it's gotta take a lot out of you to come and meet me face to face
I swear I'll only take up most of your time, honey, then I'll leave you your space
I've gotta say that it's been a while since you came knockin' at my door
Leave a message right after the tone, I won't bother you anymore

Oh no, I swear I'll never...

Go away, take your side
Come around and try to hide
Learn to hold on once I've fallen behind
Besides...I'm doing time

It only comes around but once a year, when there's nobody left to hold on
To the words they speak when nobody's near enough to tell them they've got it wrong
It seems to me that this would go out of style if we had a little more left to lose
You can't figure out how I can't understand, you might as well just give me the news

Oh no, I swear I'll never...

Go away, take your side
Come around and try to hide
Learn to let go once I've fallen behind
Besides...I'm doing time

Oh no, I swear I'll never
Take it slow, I'll live forever
Left alone, there's nothing better
Oh no, I swear I'll never...

Go away, take your side
Come around and try to hide
Learn to let go once I've fallen behind
Besides...I'm doing time

Go away, take your side
Find myself some peace of mind
Learn to love once I've fallen behind
Besides...I'm doing time
