May | Anxiety Dreams


It's the last day of May and I made it by the skin of my teeth… This is a song I wrote back in 2008 or 9 and I have always liked it but never recorded it and never really performed it either. I think in the back of my mind I always felt it was unfinished and that one day I would write more of it as it is probably my shortest song and ends on a bit of a cliff-hanger. But alas, 9 or 10 years later, it remains as it is.

It came about because I have a tendency to grind my teeth in my sleep, and around the time of writing it was quite severe, as well as having dreams about my teeth falling out. So I had this fantasy of going to see some sort of magic medicine man who would be able to cure me. Perhaps one day I will actually write the rest.
