Behind The Song | "doomed"


"Exit Fo[u]r" Track No. 10

This song came about from a writing challenge that I had given myself a few summers back.

I set out to write a wedding song.

Something that was delicate.

Something that was timeless.

I can't attest that I accomplished my goals, but I can say that I am pretty fond of this one.

It's about finding someone who adds to your life - not completes it.

I believe that every soul is complete in and of itself.

I've found that rather than constantly searching for "the one" that completes us, there's more fulfillment in finding a soul mate to tag along on our crazy life adventures.

Most often, they are the ones that come into our lives in unexpected way.

They give our blue skies a hint of sunshine, they make what was once a dream a reality.



LYRICS

Every morning I step outside and I thank God for my life

Never expecting you to drop by and give my blue skies a hint of sunshine


And then one day

You called me up in the middle of the night, set it up with that funny little lie

The one where we don't ever die

And even in the lukewarm hours, your words don't turn sour

And I don't know if it's May or early June

Either way I'm doomed


Now every day I look in your eyes, and you give me a new reason to smile

And I never thought this would be my life, but a leap of faith and your smile changed my Mind


All because one day

You called me up in the middle of the night, set it up with that funny little lie

The one where we don't ever die

And even in the lukewarm hours, your words don't turn sour

And I don't know if it's May or early June

Either way I'm doomed


I am doomed, because of you I am doomed

I used to look at that picture with butterflies, now I steal a glimpse at ease and I smile

No more sleepless nights staring at a screen, oh no

Just reality of what was once a dream

What was once a dream, what was once a dream

What was once a dream's now my reality, my reality
