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 🙂
This song received an Honorable Mention in the March/April 2019 American Songwriters Magazine Lyrics Contest.
As a side note, for people who are interested in entering these contests: I entered this song in the contest shortly after it was written and did not place. 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.ThoughtIKnew
