This is another song which was written for a songwriters-in-the-round event based on a prompt from the previous month’s audience. This time the prompt was “what I don’t know”. I decided to treat it as an exercise to write a failed-relationship/breakup song. Not from any autobiographical experience but because it seems like that’s what singer-songwriters are supposed to write 🙂
As a side note, for people who are interested in entering these contests: I believe that I entered this song in the contest shortly after it was written. I recently re-wrote the bridge, based on some feedback, and re-entered it, and that was the version that won. So it’s good to be open to editing songs even years after they were first written.
This song received an Honorable Mention in the March/April 2019 American Songwriters Magazine Lyrics Contest.ThoughtIKnew
