Sean Newton - Whatever's Left

from An Intimate Evening by Grade School Records

about

This song is kind of spiritually related to a few songs I did for the Seasons project that are all about the places we call home; it's something that's been on my mind a lot recently, thinking particularly about what happens to all the people and things you leave behind when you go to a new place.
Musically, I'm very proud of this tune; it's another step forward in production, and I was trying as much as possible to open myself up to some new things, both in terms of taste and in terms of what I can do with my instrument in conjunction with a computer.

lyrics

I fell asleep in the back of my car
Drive overnight to get back, chasing the stars
Looking back at the places I've been
I'm moving on, without a trace, or so it seems

You might think that it's a shame
To pick up my life and start again
If this is goodbye then why pretend
That all good things come to an end

The endless prairie passes by, almost unseen
Too many things on my mind, no time to dream
Can i regain what I lost, or have I changed
Did I pay too steep a cost, to stay the same

You might think that it's a shame
To pick up my life and start again
Put all my dreams up on a shelf
They're within reach for someone else

You might think that it's a shame
To pick up my life and start again
So fucking tired of being alone
Whatevers left I'll call it home
