This is Song #8 for my RPM Challenge 2021. I suppose we would say this is the title track of the Album. It’s loosely about an old friend of mine who suffered with serious drug addiction. I composed it at my piano and did many versions - in the end I settled on the simplest form of the song (scratching out a bunch of other chord progressions). It may be hard to discern the lyrics so here they are:
You want it darker
and darker and darker again
my friend
The daylight
the daylight is just too extreme
and then
It’s alright
You took what you wanted
and it made you feel good
All night
and you’re running around
you’re running around
running around
You run faster
but your head is on top of a broken body
Try harder
trying your best not to scream about it
It’s alright
you did what you did
to make you feel good
All night
and you’re running around
and you’re running around
and you’re running around
close your eyes
I don’t want to think about it
sick inside
won’t somebody take me home
It’s alright
you did what you did
to make you feel good
All night
now you’re running around
and you’re running around
and you’re running around
and you’re running around
