"Jaded and bored"
I'm so jaded, I'm so bored.
Feels like I've seen all this before
I can't get happy I don't get sad
I tell myself it's not too bad
But I wonder what I am doin' here
I wonder what I am.
Once I had a purpose Ahhh but what's the use?
I was really happenin' But I blew a fuse
Lost my place in the line
And I wonder where I am going
I wonder where I am
I've been unlucky and lucky at love
Watched what was grooving grow into a rut
All of the in things go out
And I wonder when I'll be fulfilled
I wonder if I will
My imagination tells me I could great
Be doing things that would benefit the state
And my fellow man and my woman
But I wonder what I might do
I wonder what I might
But I'm so jaded I'm so bored
It feels like I've seen all this before
I can't get happy I don't get sad I tell myself it's not too bad
But, I wonder oh yes I wonder I wonder.......
Here's a little story- I was in the back yard playing the chords to "Inconsideration" which is on the Someplace Different CD. I came up with a new tempo and new words which expressed my mood that day-jaded and bored. The song has been recorded by the band Steelbeam and also Anthony de los Santos is preparing a reggae version for his upcoming CD. We're going to put a blues version on "Leadbelly and Me" this summer
