    Great, here goes.

    Song two of a three-song arc with vocals I'm planning. The first one was (obviously) The Way It Is.

    This one I like more - couldn't tell you why. It's called The Way It Used To Be.

    I came up with it while toying around the idea of doing a postapocalyptic style song, and although in the end I didn't go with that there are some definite elements from that I idea I decided to keep. I swapped out the church organ I was going to use for a simple piano in the last verse/chorus and I think it sounds great, and then I pared down the length a lot.

    I enjoyed making it, but I've spent most of the day finishing it up so I'm not even sure if it sounds any good or not at this point.

    Here are the lyrics and general chords as they're sung and played.

    E Now I sit on the stage
    C I can still hear the applause while
    G outside my city burns
    D/C/G I am alone with my thoughts
    E Inside this darkened theater
    C I make believe tonight
    G That the buildings haven't fallen
    B7 That we're all still alive

    E
    G That we're all
    B7 Still Alive x2

    E As my family burns
    C I cannot squash my memories
    G Of a thousand smiling faces
    D/C/G Of a city loving me
    E It's easy to remember
    C As your bombs drop towards me
    G The way my city used to look
    B7 The way it used to be

    E
    G The way
    B7 It used to be x2

    E Now I sit on the stage
    C I can still hear the applause while
    G outside my city burns
    D/C/G I am alone with my thoughts
    E Inside this darkened theater
    C I make believe tonight
    G That the buildings haven't fallen
    B7 That we're all still alive

    E
    G The way
    B7 It used to be x4
    Hope you enjoy it.
