Lots of song ideas. Zero songs.

I’m at ‘small bar’ in San Diego… I’ve blogged from here before. The girl who gives me free drinks seems to have quit. So i paid for this beer.

I’ve been stuck in this cycle of having great melodies it with no words to put to them… or having lyrics i like with no melodies to suit the mood.
It’s very frustrating.
I’ve said it before, I hate the idea of someone stumbling across my voice memos or notes on my phone if I die unexpectedly, it won’t be quite the gold mine that Jeff Buckleys studio tapes were.
So since I’m also lacking a new blog, here’s a Song idea I had…. In text form.

Enjoy.

Grand Junction Colorado.

I was in grand junction colorado.
and Cruisers was apparently the place to go.
a red faced man was next to me, his name was Carl.
i know this Because he was flirting with sarah the bargirl.

When I have rings on my finger
I just wanna hit people.
Don’t you just wanna hit people?

I haven’t hit people since I got out. Replied his friend. I’d elbow this guy right here.

…. What else is there to do in grand junction? I extend. Trying to deflect my fear.

Are you hearing this fuckin guy.
Fuckin teen wolf over here.

…… Oh dear.

This reminds me of being hit by Mr. Prouse, only now I’m more aware.
He hit me out the back of Hayden’s house. – I used to care.
He said I boo’d him at graduation, and that it upset him because his grandma was there.

… It’s unfair,

because I didn’t. But it wasn’t about that. He just didn’t like me, I’m sure now he’d admit it.

I could laugh about little things and embrace the quirks of the world.
He would search for reasons to hit people because he couldn’t talk to girls.

The cops called me after my broken nose had healed. But I told them, to drop the case.
He’s not worth the effort. Despite my new crooked face.

He came into my work one day, and he called me a pussy for not looking in his direction.
It would have been wise after that for him to do a burger inspection.

How about Mr. Munchow? He used to taunt me at parties. Tell me to take it outside
But he’s not worth writing about.. Coz i imagine he’d grin with pride.

So you see, Mum. No need to be concerned about grand junction Colorado.
There’s jerks all over the world, just gotta know when to go.

And hey, if these boys are still to young to take this with a grain of salt.
I guess I’ll spend more years humorously avoiding assault.

About Broni

Broni is the name... pronounce it how you like.. but when talking in the 3rd person.. i use... broni....... some use bro-knee... as long as you dont use drugs..??? I'm gonna miss ya, man. In September 2010 I was in San Diego. I'd just finished a set at the House of Blues and was being driven back to where I was crashing with my friend/chauffeur/couch provider Jenni. For some reason I don't recall, I brought up my love for dogs. She concurred, and what followed was this story. It was Jenni's first day of college, and it coincided with the unfortunate and very sad happenstance that her dog needed to be put down. She took the dog to the vet and when asked if she would like to stay, declined. Months pass and on TV she hears this message. 'When your dog is put down they will look for you in their final moments.' This obviously made her even sadder than it just made you. Whether or not this is a fact. The sentiment still punched me right in the heart and compelled me to write 'I'm gonna miss ya, man' which was penned the very next day in a cafe called Rebecca's. I hate bio's. A list of things I've done or am about to do seems antiquated. As if telling you that I once was paid a handsome sum to play at an after school care program is going to compel you to listen to my music or call me and hand me a multi million dollar record contract. At this point, musically, I have no interest in telling you where I've been or where I'm going. What matters is what I'm doing and who I am right now. The answer to both of those is this song. And it's coming very soon. My name is Broni, I'm from Australia. I'm a singer songwriter. All my songs are free and I have a new one out soon, that's all ya need. Nice to meet you, we'll probably like each other. find me at these places http://www.bronimusic.com http://youtube.com/bronibronimusic http://www.facebook.com/bronimusic http://www.twitter.com/bronibroni
