Fifth Of July

Today is the fifth of july. One year ago today I was sit in my room, hungover, on a comedown, confused, upset, worried and generally “not in a great place”. On the fourth of July last year I spent the day with my friends; enjoying the sunshine and getting very drunk. It was a great night which I blogged about – but I missed out some of the background details of that time; details that were not fun, or joyous, or celebratory, and therefore had no place on my blog.

On the fifth of July, the next day, I stayed in and wrote this song. It is about the only thing I achieved that day. I wrote this song as a one-sided conversation to a specific person. I recorded it today and it took me straight back to life on the corner of my bed one year ago, life that was very different to the life I have today despite being sat on the same corner of the same bed.

Let me know if you listen to the song and if you would like to hear more. If you super-like it then PLEASE do me a favour and do one of the following (these are all free and super easy ways to support me/make my day):

a) follow me on soundcloud/like the song/repost the song
b) follow me on Facebook and like/share the song
c) tell me! in a comment or tweet – the more feedback the better


a blog from that time which gets quoted in the song
