about

I wrote this song near an open window, wondering if anyone passing by would hear it. I wrote it for the whole world, realizing that maybe no one would ever hear it. An accidental walk refers to someone finding the song by accident on the internet.

lyrics

Melody sings with a broken tambourine,
Keeping time with the jangle,
As she tries to unravel
All the tangles in her mind.

Melody used to play in a local country band.
The singer was her lover,
She played the tambourine
And they sang in harmony.

Melody sings her songs for the whole world.
She sings the songs that no one has ever heard.
She sings alone near a window in the dark.
I heard her songs on an accidental walk
As I wandered all alone
Looking for the love I lost.

Melody caught the singer naked with a fan.
He was pounding her with his rhythm,
Filling her with his song
And Melody saw it all.

She threw her tambourine
And hit him in the back.
All the harmony ended.
The metal discs were bended,
Now they make an awful sound.

Melody sings her songs for the whole world.
She sings the songs that no one has ever heard.
She sings alone near a window in the dark.
I heard her songs on an accidental walk
As I wandered all alone
Looking for the love I lost.

Melody sings with a broken tambourine,
Keeping time with the jangle,
As she tries to unravel
All the tangles in her mind.

Melody sings her songs for the whole world.
She sings the songs that no one has ever heard.
She sings alone near a window in the dark.
I heard her songs on an accidental walk
As I wandered all alone
With my own broken heart..

Sad Guitars was recorded during the summer of 2013. We work in a factory in Youngstown where the open playing of music has been banned and radios are confiscated. This is where we met and began talking about making music. Donald and Jack are characters in a story we created about a musical journey.
