For those of you who are not familiar with my old song The Lighthouse, well, you can now be familiar with the re-recording I did on Saturday. I must warn you; most of my old songs have very sad and angsty lyrics. This particular song was written and recorded in its original form many years ago, I believe 7 or 8 years ago. If you are interested in listening to the original recording, you can find it on my personal blog. I’ll put a link at the bottom of this post. Again, I must warn you that the singing on the old version is terrible, especially on the bridge. It may be painful enough for you not to finish the song. However whiny my singing, off-beat my guitar playing, and terrible the equipment I had available, I think the song is somewhat charming. Perhaps charming isn’t the right word. It’s nostalgic to me. It’s actually a rather interesting song musically speaking (and somewhat poetic, if immaturely so, lyrically speaking), and I decided it worthy of investing a day into so that it can now be what I envisioned and wished it to be all those years ago. If you want to read the lyrics, they are typed up in the link below to my personal blog. Now that I have done what I can to brace for some depressing emo music, I present my re-recording of the lighthouse.
