Notes: Have you ever had an argument or tiff with someone only to realize how silly it was later? Reverent to mid century pop rock, this pop gem explores this simple experience. As always, I’m fascinated with archaic words like: “upsot” and “afeared” so I had to use them haha. [ see  information on idiom ]. Recorded over two days in my backyard garden shed.

Lyrics:
of the things I’ve done of have failed to do
I stop to review
In my wayfare mind all the time
I misconceived and half forgot
inclined toward to be upsot
for what we fuss and fret for naught
it was a tempest in a teapot
somewhere in my thoughts or in the words I choose to use
I can be obtuse
if you find I’m wry this is why
I misconceived and half forgot
inclined toward to be upsot
for what we fuss and fret for naught
it was a tempest in a teapot
be not afeard of all the noise
of a storm that comes to destroy
it’ll be over in a minute
of the things I’ve done of have failed to do
I stop to review
In my wayfare mind all the time
I misconceived and half forgot
inclined toward to be upsot
for what we fuss and fret for naught
it was a tempest in a teapot
