Here are the lyrics to my latest song, penned just this night and my first in a while. It's called Boring.

I have a lot of exciting friends.
They follow all of the latest trends.
They talk about all the things they do,
but, I just find the things they do boring.

They talk about all the cars they drive.
They talk about all the skies they dive.
The watch the action in action films
but, I just find the things they watch boring.

For life itself is boring.
Days go on for ever.
Life has become boring
for me.
My days are filled with nothing
since you went away.
Everything is boring
to me.

My friends are living exciting lives.
They live them with their exciting wives.
They talk at parties and people laugh
but, I just find the things they say boring.

My friends have hobbies that people like.
They watch the football and mountain bike.
They listen to all the latest hits
but, I just find the things they do boring.

For life itself is boring.
Days go on for ever.
Life has become boring
for me.
My days are filled with nothing
since you went away.
Everything is boring
to me.

I sit at home and I read your books.
I light a candle and watch it flux.
I get a phone call from my best friend
but, I just find the things he says boring.

And so my days slowly drag to weeks.
All of my fluid joints turn to creaks,
and all my colour just fades to grey
and, everything I think about bores me.

For life itself is boring.
Days go on for ever.
Life has become boring
for me.
My days are filled with nothing
since you went away.
Everything is boring
to me.
