Story

Taken from RPM Challenge blog: "I've been finding that this project is about clearing out my psyche. It's like I need to finish all these half written songs before I can write anything new. I am finding that some of these half written songs that I "dumped" because I was being overly critical and overly concerned about who will be hearing them are actually quite good. Tonight I recorded a song called Spring Cleaning - a song about dumping friends who suck and ridding your life of negative forces. "

Lyrics

It’s time for some spring cleaning this year I’m not saying that your trash - there’s just no room for you here Gotta take a trip over to Good Will - Cause it’s time for spring cleaning around here You used to be a real good drinking friend But the bottom of the bottle is where our friendship ends So I don’t want to talk to you about what I’m drinking for So I’m gonna drink this one out alone Some friendships are like jeans that are too tight You want to say goodbye but instead you say goodnight We were a good pair, now your tangled in my hair And I’m just a snare in your plans I planted these trees for some apples to eat But now they only block out the sun I planted these trees for some apples to eat But now I’ve had enough and my life is overrun By shadows blocking out all of the light I want to say goodbye but instead I say goodnight Shadows have been blocking out the light And I want a brighter life, I want a brighter life I finished high school in the last century And now I’ve got these people contacting me I’ll turn off my computer cause I want something more Like the kind of friend who will show up at your door There’s so much clutter in the closet of my life I want to say goodbye, but instead I say goodnight The people I love, I want to love them right I want to love them right, I want to love them right It’s time for some spring cleaning this year I’m not saying that your trash - there’s just no room for you here Gonna take a trip over to Goodwill, cause it’s time for spring cleaning around here
