Came after a jag of listening to reggae for the first time in my life and wondered how it would sound in a predominantly minor key (it's always minor keys with me). I came up with a nice little looping chord progression, added a floating vocal and came up with a simple little song I'm quite proud of.


I awake to the smell of hickory
And notes of ghostsong in my ear
Minor key of course,
the voicing slightly hoarse
But captivating
and now the song is becoming clear

"Don't wait for me"

It's a notion in death
Just the same as in life
Those who fear burdening
Chant a simple song to themselves
A worried plea to reason

"Don't wait for me"

"Don't wait for me"

I never saw the spectre
I just felt a wave of calm
The flames started licking at the house
Yeah, and I slept on
