Steemit open mic week 43- Alkaline Trio cover- Blue in the Face

in #openmic3 years ago (edited)

Hey everyone! I know it's a little late but here's my submission for open mic week 43. I hadn't hadn't time to post yet this week but me and one of my best friends ( also the bass player in our metal band) Bradley a.k.a. @neropoison were playing acoustics tonight and decided to submit one of our favorite songs to play together. It's a cover from Alkaline Trio we've played for awhile, we mess up the lyrics occasionally but hope you guys enjoy it regardless :).

It's about time that I came clean with you
No longer fine, I'm no longer running smooth
I thought that I found myself under something new
Just one more line I repeat over and over again
'Till I'm blue in the face with a choking regret
Because I talk in circles 'round you on my bed
Can't say I blame you one bit when you kept it all inside
When you left that night

It's about time that you got sick of me
No longer fun, and so far from interesting
I thought that I found me a cure for feeling old
Just one more line to keep me sleeping loudly and cold
In disgrace with a shameful regret
As I speak in tongues to myself in my bed
Can't say I blame you one bit when you kept it all inside
When you left that night

And all that followed fell like mercury to hell
Somehow we lost our heads for the last time
And all that followed fell like mercury to hell
Somehow we lost our heads for the last time

And I don't dream since I quit sleeping
No I haven't slept since I met you
And you can't breathe without coughing at daytime
Neither can I
So what do you say?
Your coffin, or mine?

Thanks for checking it out and please follow @neropoison and I @johnbutler for more original music and fun content!

I love hearing you guys playing music! I sang along the whole time. :)

Love the back porch setting. I've spent a lot of time playing on the back porch.

Would be awesome if you added the lyrics to your post.

A cool tune you guys. Thanks for playing for us.

We definitely spend a lot of time playing on the back porch. It's the best place after the kiddos go to sleep, and the rain tonight was downright peaceful.
That's a great idea, I had thought to post them but we messed up the lyrics a bit so we were apprehensive.
I'm glad you enjoyed it, and as always a huge thanks to you @luzcypher and @pfunk for the opportunity!

Side note, I added the lyrics as per your suggestion. Hope it wasn't to late or anything.

Nice work gentlemen. Do moar!

The sound is amazing guys!!! Both of you are such amazing guitarists! The harmonies are so spot on. Bravo!!!
