VLOGTOBER DAY 3 – Million Miles Away

Third time is a charm and I believe I am starting to find a rhythm when recording these vlogs.

In this video, I break down a song I wrote in 2012/2013 called, Million Miles Away.

Vlogtober/Blogtober Day 3 – Million Miles Away

 

 

Day 19 – Million Miles Away (Produced by Esco Live)

Audio:

Lyrics:

Sometimes I feel this isn’t where my home is/
Damn the way you treat me makes think that I’m homeless /
Instead of open arms I get a closed entrance/
The cold shoulder before I even utter out a sentence/
You get enough support but cant support me
This one sided relationship isn’t healthy
But I keep hoping that one day you will see
You will never find another person with this much loyalty
Will you miss me when I’m gone?
I betcha you’ll take me to the airport and help me put my luggage on
Cast me in the middle of heaven and hell
Between night and day
Looking for twilight
Expecting me to be breaking dawn
You know Rome wasn’t built in a day
I can’t do the impossible My patience is dwindling away
Should I stay or should I go I’m the one to say
But with the way things are going, i just may
Verse 2
It could be a hundred Maybe even a thousand/
Or maybe a million miles away and counting/
From the comfort of your bust/
The memories of us/
But some things never change And change is a must/
Blood was the only thing restraining me from leaving/
Now they have to understand that change Is what I’m needing/
I gave you my worst years And my best is still pending/
So don’t think I’ma sit around here waiting/
Can’t force you to love me or embrace me as your own/
Bet you get a little jealous when I get love from people I’ve never known/
Your bitter didn’t want me to leave home/
That’s why when I look up your the only star that sits alone/
I feel sorry for you because now I know/
Through all this, you needed me more than I needed you so/
Your selfish don’t want me to grow/
I gotta be selfish when I decide to let you go/
I feel sorry for you because now I know
Through all this, you needed me more than I needed you so
Your selfish don’t want me to grow
I gotta be selfish when I decide to let you go.

Vlogtober Day 2 – Texas Pyramids

Simplicity is the name of the mother flipping game. This is day 2 of Vlogtober/Blogtober.

I’ll be taking you on a journey through the meaning behind my song lyrics for songs released during my current challenge which is the #keepit100withthyself challenge. Currently, I am on day 18 and the song is Texas Pyramids.

Vlogtober/Blogtober Day 2: Texas Pyramids

 

In this video, I break down my theory of humans being more extraordinary than pyramids, my travels outside of the USA that sparked lines for the song, sleep routines, not being distracted by social media and more!

This song shows up on my album, Excuse My Graffiti, which you can stream here.

Year: 2012

Age 22

Project: Unreleased

Audio:

Lyrics:

Chorus: Deno

singing the same song

stop singing the same song

Better run run run

Move with your heart

And soon you’ll become one with the stars/

 

Verse 1: Mr. Composition

My ear to streets my heart in the music/

A prisoner in the place I thought freedom was in it/

what I thought was an hour is really a minute/

Tried to paint a masterpiece but it wasn’t as vivid/

Cuz it wasn’t from my heart but rather something to mimic/

Following the footsteps of those who followed a gimic/

A product of surrounding stuck at the city limit/

No wonder the reach is that of a midget/

Cuz Everybodys trying to be a hero for their hometown/

But they never break out, they just break down/

Fighting over a cursed throne

yahll can keep the crown/

mr comp silent assassin make moves without a sound/

watch and learn/

from those who crash and burn/

Failed had they turn/

And see what went wrong/

So I don’t do the same/

look for someone to blame/

Shower in my own pain/

 

Singing the same song.

 

Chorus: Deno

singing the same song

stop singing the same song

Better run run run

Move with your heart

And soon you’ll become one with the stars/
