Nothing's in my way

'Nothing's In My Way' is a song about living with anxiety and the daily obstacles and hurdles it throws at us. I'm pretty sure that many people can relate to that, right? but you know what? It doesn't rule my life anymore!, I do!

Please feel free to comment, as I always like to know how people manage their own anxieties and mental health issues, and how they have cope and live with these debilitating conditions throughout their daily lives. Music is such a massive part of me, and is an invaluable therapy that I embrace as much as I can.

I wrote and recorded this song a few months ago and re-visited it again today. I mixed it down on my trusty old friend - Zoom MRS 1608 It was all done in 1 take and layered. The drums were recorded with a couple of SM57's and 2 overhead condensers for that real raw live sound. We've (My Zoom and me) been through a lot over the past 10 years: 4 houses, 3 ex girlfriends, 2 dogs, 2 cats and hours of fun!


Lyrics:


Woke up late this morning
thinking same shit different day
what could possibly go wrong
nothing stands in my way,
in my way
nothing's in my way

Took my happy tablet which helps me to find a way
helps with my anxiety then everything's OK
it's OK
everything's OK

Do I even care if you don't know the strength of your own mind
people stop and stare at you and talk together time to time
Do I even care if you don't know the strength of your own mind
people stop and stare at you and talk together time to time

When the feelings rearrange I feel like running free
who will come and find me there it's necessarily
all of me, it is always of me

Woke up late this morning
thinking same shit different day
what could possibly go wrong
nothing stands in my way,
in my way
nothing's in my way

Do I even care if you don't know the strength of your own mind
people stop and stare at you and talk together time to time
Do I even care if you don't know the strength of your own mind
people stop and stare at you and talk together time to time


Thanks for taking the time to visit and listen to this track of mine!

Cheers

Darren
