A musical exploration in using open tunings (C in this case!) to reinvigorate the good ol I-IV-V chords. A lyrical exploration of the moment in a breakup where the sad feelings turn to angry ones. The first in a set of songs exploring open C tuning on guitar as well as examining a relationship that ended on bad terms.


I must have missed it when you said you were over it
You’d be surprised to see how well I would’ve taken it
When you spare someone your true feelings you’re just really sparing yourself
So go spare yourself

You must have meant it when you joked about it with him
I forced a laugh to smooth the path to our white picket
When you spared me of your true feelings
You were just sparing yourself
So go spare yourself
