I wrote it so that it would go to the tune of Johnny Cash - Hurt. My youngest brother is a bit of a guitar prodigy, so maybe I'll have him come up with a tune and record it for you all, if you like it.

There's a camel in my mouth
And a monkey on my back
My finger's turning orange again
Getting tired of all of that
And when the reasons complicate
Can't seem to take off this black hat
I have these specially lined cans
But they really aren't all that

[Chorus:]
And I'm happy here without you
I'm happy when I'm sad
I'm happy to have known you
And I'm happy when I'm bad
But I'm not happy here without you
I'm not happy when I'm sad
And I think I could get better
If you're no longer mad

I Got a bit of hope today
Took it for a sign well timed
But sometimes that's my problem
When my vision makes me blind
And maybe that's the reason why
I made them all unwind
I took my trust away
Only half expecting what I'd find

[Chorus:]
And I'm happy here without you
I'm happy when I'm sad
I'm happy to have known you
And I'm happy when I'm bad
But I'm not happy here without you
I'm not happy when I'm sad
And I think I could get better
If you're no longer mad

Now I'm escaping from this prison
With only half my soul intact
But you were not there waiting
Like I thought when I looked back

Definitely record it. When you put in the Not in ltalics, I need to hear it in conjunction with the music. Seems it would go good with sound.

Cool, cool... it might take a little while, but I'll definitely see what we can come up with. Thanks for the input.

Anyone else? I'm fine with constructive criticism too.

Thanks, never recorded any other songs before. I started working on recording this one with my brother a few months back but I put it on hold because of something that happened. Now I'm thinking about starting it up again but wondering if the lyrics are too emotional for somebody his age to be reading over and over. Haven't decided yet.
