    What's Going On

    Eyes down, tuned out

    Real life fades to the background

    On line, al the time

     

    Mama's in the corner, pulling hair

    Daddy's giving speeches, and ultimatums

    Nothing seems to sink in at all

    What's going on

     

    Wit's end, they don't understand me

    How I'm feeling, all the pressures deep inside

    Are slowly building, it's overwhelming

     

    I need an escape a getaway

    Forget about the hurt and pain

    It seems we've grown worlds apart

    What's going on

     

    What's going on

    We don't communicate the way we did back then

    The thoughts and feelings deep inside are locked away from them

    What's going on 

    What's going on

     

    Look up, tell how you're feeling

    Is there something that I can help you deal with

    I'll try to understand, though I'm only human

    What's going on

    Oh tell me tell me

    What's going on

    Secret Garden

    Secret garden, an oasis
    A place of hope, a second home
    Where the worries of the world fade away
    Secret garden, an oasis
    With a rainbow slowly growing
    Ever changing with the seasons, come what may

    The birds and wildlife come and go
    Warm breezes dance and play
    Minutes turn to hours
    Sky shifts from light to gray
    That crescent moon and its milky glow
    Transforms this magic place
    With a book in hand and that night wind song
    I slowly turn the page

    Secret garden, an oasis
    Contentment is thy name
    The toils and labors to maintain
    Are a joy to undertake
    Secret garden, an oasis
    Dirty hands and sun kissed skin
    With the morning light and a steaming cup
    I can't wait to begin

    <Instrumental>

    The birds and wildlife come and go
    Warm breezes dance and play
    Minutes turn to hours
    Sky shifts from light to gray
    That crescent moon and its milky glow
    Transforms this magic place
    With a book in hand and that night wind song
    I slowly turn the page

    To that secret garden, an oasis
    A place of hope, a second home
    Where the worries of the world fade away

NOTES
All the songs written during the 2017 50-90 Songwriting Challenge will be added to this album, and made available. These are generally one-take demos, performed shortly after the song's creation. Historically, songs written during challenges go through some serious editing in the months following the challenge, and many never get performed for one reason or another. This is your chance for a sneak peak behind the curtain at what's written before the editor in me has …
