Ep. 53: Song “You Only Live A Day” (Influenced by REM)

This one is an oldie written when I was around 15 years old. I was going for an R.E.M. feel and I think I achieved that with the guitar part, which mimics Peter Buck’s picking style.

The intro kind of has a spaghetti western vibe with the tambourine, shakers retro organ and overdrive guitar. The lyrics are about feeling like your life is passing by.

Lyrics:
Everybody knows but only time can tell
I still have left to show the cure for all my ails

All your dreams were made from children’s lemonade
Wrapped up in the cold, have stories left untold

You only live a day, she never came my way
I try so hard to remember, try so hard to remember

Everything’s so strange, ignoring all the pain
Ask me what you way, you’re wasting time away

You only live a day, she never came my way
I try so hard to remember, try so hard to remember
