My song ‘All The Feels’ goes some way to­wards ex­plain­ing my mind, and its fre­quent bat­tles with it­self.


Let me tell you how I feel

Sharp in­take of breath

Ad­just the po­si­tion,

Let me tell you how I feel, Ten­sion build­ing, can you hang in? Let me tell you how I feel,

Can you bear it, will I tear it? Is it com­ing out too real?

Avert your eyes, adopt sur­prise and carry on for miles,

Sud­denly bowed and bru­tally tired,

Of fight­ing my­self and the way that I’m wired,

And the ef­fort it takes to sup­press the de­sire,

Just to let the bad guy drive, All the feel­ings, all the time, A rest­less body and a mind that lies,

Lit­tle helper makes ev­ery­thing quiet,

Just don’t let the bad guy drive,

Is not talk­ing, one foot on the other,

A bet­ter way to get through the week?

What I’m propos­ing gets worse be­fore it’s bet­ter,

Let me tell you how I feel.
