what's next to me

After playing the solo on my latest backing track I found that vocals only could damage the music. On the other hand the complete backing track, a blues progression, would be too samey. Therefore, I had it discussed on a songwriting forum. Someone suggested to use words sparingly so as to leave room for the guitar fills, so that is what I did:

I see her frown
I hear her talk
but I stay lost
in my own thoughts

although I feel
I should respond

I do nothing
but look beyond

what's next to me
I cannot see

what's next to me


it's been a while
that things felt right
that we made love
or talked all night

I've grown apart
from her and me

I feel like blind
so I can't see

what's next to me
I cannot see

what's next to me


Here is the backing track
