Present Past - Sweet-N-Evil

Present Past

Notes:
When I wrote the music for this song, the second Fight album had just come out. One of the songs was built around the same lick, over and over. I had never written a song that way, so I decided to give it a shot.

I came close, but just had to throw in the changes for the chorus. It was a fun exercise.

Present Past

Verse
Sing child, sing to me
Sing that weeping song
Sing child, I believe
Sing it all life long

Sing it to yesterday
Turn into tomorrow
Everything about this thing 
Has ended up in sorrow

Verse
Play child, play their game
Play it by their rules
Play child, never change
You can always lose

Play child sitting on
the sideline looking on
Everything about this thing
Should have never been

Chorus
Hey wishful child
Just hold my hand
It’s not what it seems
It’s all as planned 

Hey wishful child
Just hold my hand
It’s not what it seems
It’s all as planned

Solo 

Verse
Sing child, sing to me
Sing that weeping song
Sing child, I believe
Sing it all life long

Chorus
Hey wishful child
Just hold my hand
It’s not what it seems
It’s all as planned 

Hey wishful child
Just hold my hand
It’s not what it seems
It’s all as planned

Hey wishful child 
Can’t you see?
I’m a wishful child
This story’s me

Hey wishful child 
Can’t you see?
I’m a wishful child
This story’s me
