I Wonder

Normally I improvise everything from scratch for the monthly contests. However, I know that many take pieces and work them further for these things.

The base of this song was recorded in the car on February 28, 2017. It wasn't posted for FAWM that year. It sat unloved in a file with other songs.

It needed cleaned up. I thought of adding a spot of reverb to mask some of the artifacts that were created. That sort of turned in to this, but I like the effect for the subject matter.

I dare say at this point folks wouldn't be able to immediately tell it was recorded in a moving car.

In any case, I'm putting this song to my "41 songs about being 41" album.

This was originally a car recording.

The base material was recorded on February 28th, 2017.

It languished in a large file with other songs until August 12th, 2018.

I wonder
I wonder what is going on.
I wonder. Yes, I wonder.
How I can put it all in a song.
I would like to know.

What is going on?
Not in the country. Oh no, no, no.
Not in the world. Oh, no, no.
I would like to know what's going on with me.
Right here. Right now.

How would you like to grow, grow, grow?
Change in form and shape and function.
How would you like to grow, grow, grow?
Never knowing what you'll become.

I would like to know these things.
Know so many lovely things.
I would like to know these things.
And I would like to know them in a song.
