Weekly Beats 9/52 ‘Death of a Nurse’

Week 9/52
A punk / rock kind of a jam which tbh I’m very happy with!
I wrote part of this song a while ago and used this week to really piece it together into entirety.
The drums were my friend Anthony – recorded with my 2 NUDE microphones (Ribbon + Condenser) in my dad’s house.

Bass / electric guitars DI and digitally re-amped.
Acoustic guitar I used a Mid/Side recording technique to create a nice wide sound, which i could ‘scoop’ in the middle to make room for the vocals in the mix.

(Using a kind of jazzy chord progression – somehow inspired from Springsteen’s ‘I’m on Fire’)

Lyrically this song has to do with my mum passing away a few years ago – and also, a few of the ideas/thoughts that surround something very difficult like that. But it’s also a fun energetic song and I like it that way.

Thanks for listening!
—————————————————————-
Well a new year’s coming and it’s coming up fast
Boy start running it’ll kick your ass
Starts out hard and only gets worse
End of a life – death of a nurse.

Heartache, heartache of the realest kind.
Now it’s too late, too late, to say goodbye.
So I’m growing up cold and talking straight
I got big dreams and they can’t wait for you to
pack your bags and walk behind
Never been one to stand in line.

Look at you all
I can’t believe
They were the final words you said

Before you checked your ticket and closed your eyes
I’ll see you on the other side
Starts out hard and only gets worse
End of a life – death of a nurse.

Hold me now and don’t pretend like you don’t know that everything ends.
Hold me now and don’t pretend like you don’t know.

Something to say boy or something to prove?
Risky play, so much to lose
Wet your lips and dry your eyes
Good days make the best goodbyes.

Look at you all
I still believe
She’d be having a ball

Before you checked your ticket and closed your eyes
I’ll see you on the other side
Starts out hard and only gets worse
End of a life – death of a nurse.

Hold me now and don’t pretend like you don’t know that everything ends.
Hold me now and don’t pretend like you don’t know.
