Scenic Route (Single)

by Timmy Vilgiate



Howdy folks,
This is the first song from the new album, which will be called Scenic Roue. Currently I have five songs produced for the album. This is an early draft of the song. It was originally written sometime in 2012, and then rewritten in the summer of 2016.



Verse: Dm Am Em C G
I wanna take the scenic route
Down to the end of town
And in some great castles shadow
I wanna watch your hair hang down
I wanna know what you know
Walk in cities underground
From no matter how far away
Somehow my hometown's still too loud
But together jump into the river,
Maybe escape the sound.

Chorus: Em G D
Ooooh, look we've been cut open
Under their looking glass
But by the time our flights are over
It will all be in the past

I wrote the words before I knew
Or even saw the best of you
I wanna find a hideaway
Before the past it runs us through
If it catches up to us
I don't know what it will do
But maybe with a bit of holy water
The song's been born anew

Interlude: Dm Am Dm Am

So I wanna find a scenic route
That can shoot right past the clouds
I wanna breath them in
Taste your spirit and breath it out
From inside of my crystal coffin
Somehow I can't say it out loud
But I know that I dreamed about you
Baby, I just don't know how
