Half way there!! (26th song of 52!) So I’m back from Spain, I had a great time, but now it’s time to get back to business! Is there a worse month than November? I always get depressed during November and I tried to explain why in this song. Hope you like it… overall i’m happy with it, I think it’s entertaining.. and the good news is this dreaded month is almost over!!

Please don’t hesitate to leave your comments if you listen to the song!

See you next week!

What I like about it:
I like the chorus, i think it flows pretty well

What I’m not so sure:
The verses are ok but could be a bit more varied… The voice is not very clear at some places, the guitar could use some variations too

Lyrics & Chords

Surviving November
Verses: C E7 F G    Chorus: Am Fmaj7/A Gsus2 C E7    (
Tune a half-step down)

Of all the ways to go insane
Of all the ways to lose your mind
I found one that's pretty damn amazing
Yes, it works every single time

November wind tears out your soul
The freezing rain then makes you numb
A sudden fatigue now swallows you whole
You give up your hope to see the sun

In my eyes, can you see a sign of life?
In my eyes, can you see a sign of life? 
In my eyes, can you see a sign of life?
In my eyes, Doctor will I survive? 
Doctor, will I survive November? 

Don't dare turning on your TV
Out there everyone has gone nuts
I already couldn't cope with anxiety
And i don't even have The Shot

Still, I venture to buy my groceries
Stay focused, i need to be strong
But is it really necessary?
A whole two months of Christmas songs?


It'd be so much easier, if you'd be here, if you'd be here
It'd be so much easier
Surviving November
