Fidelity

about

This was recorded in two parts - one day during college I showed up for a Pro Tools lab that turned out to have no point - they had altered the curriculum and hadn't yet figured out what to do with that time slot. So I went home, got my guitar, came back, and recorded this song in about three hours. I wrote it on the spot, basing it on a guitar line I had been playing around with, and attempting to build the rest of the song around a single A chord.

I liked it a lot, so I took the mix home and wrote lyrics for it over the next week or so, then recorded the vocals in a studio over thanksgiving break. I love how it turned out.

lyrics

Lyrics:
You know it won't be the last time that I call you even if I say it will.
And you know I'm only holding out for a little more fidelity.
And just because you've got me on a string doesn't mean I shouldn't have the best of you.
And if I ask for a little more time or happiness - all the things you have the power to give.
Does it mean that you should walk all over me, or should I take away your shoes?
And just because you have the power to hurt me, baby, doesn't mean that you have to.

And I will take it in if it's mine. And if I suffer, I'll do it quietly.
And I will take it in if it's mine. And if I suffer, I'll do it quietly.
