This Grenade Will Love You – Demo

*Very rough demo above*

This is a new song added to our E.P. list. It’s a fast one with a country/blues feel to it. The guitar is in an open D tuning. Leslie does a great piano riff over the verse while Daniela keeps a steady rolling beat throughout with brushes that’s not too overpowering. I still need to work out the bass which always changes the entire color of a song, maybe this weekend over a few beers. Regarding the lyrics, I think we’ve all been close to someone like the person in this song at sometime. I’ve known far too many.

This Grenade Will Love You

Verse #1
I have to hide, have to crawl,
Deep inside your heart,
After everything you’ve done.
I travel wide, can’t escape,
Those words like butcher’s knives.
The past, a rising tide.

Chorus
Conversations playing ‘round,
My empty head, both soft and loud.
This grenade will love you,
You say, this grenade will love you,
Each and every time.

Verse#2
Echoes in the night, and you lose your mind,
And you drown yourself in light,
Then watch all sorrows taking flight.
Leaving you here, a ship without a wheel,
And you’re anchored to the vine.
Oh grenade, tell me that you’re mine.

Chorus
Conversations playing round,
My empty head, both soft and loud.
This grenade will love you,
You say, this grenade will love you,
Each and every time.

Middle Eight
It’s a shame you’re going nowhere,
Can’t move forward, cant remember.
A troubled heart sleeps, a troubled heart sleeps,
and it floats in cheap wine.

Chorus
Conversations playing round,
My empty head, both soft and loud.
In libation’s wake we sail,
Try deny it, I’ll see you in hell.
This grenade will love you,
You say, this grenade will love you,
Each and every time.
