Lyrics:

Strung out low down out of my mind
Since I stopped listening to my own advice
Oh when will I start listening to myself?

Told everybody to take it slow
Then jumped head first out of that open window
Oh when will I start listening to myself?

Everybody been quoting the blues
Would somebody, anybody, clue me what to do

Everybody always tell me goodbye
Would somebody, hold my body ‘fore I break down and cry

People they saying I got so much to lose
They can’t see you in my head turning the screws
Oh when will I start listening to myself?

Tried so hard to shake you over all this time
Still got you going round in my mind
Oh when will I start listening to myself? Will I ever learn?

Weather report:
Rainy.

Doing today?
Wrote song first thing pretty quickly which feels good, jam with Adrian, hung out with friends in Skipton who have a film production company

Feeling today?
Good, but Jo and kids are all stressed out!

Who/what inspired you?
Always wanted to write a blues song like this - Peter Green/Beatles Oh Darling sounding.

Song about:
Being a hypocrite.
