Creative Brief

So... at beginning of week 2 of the UK's self-isolation or lockdown period time was hanging heavy... So I cooked up a short, simple song that could do with some better vocals, better lyrics and some of the ol' K-town magic!

Superb additions from the following:

@OregonGuy: vocals, harmonies and vocal hamony

@peterrand: keyboards and guitar

@JeanLui: bass and superb bass solo

@dwfreak: acoustic drums

@EricRos: lead guitar

and of course, finally,

@Mysterian: songwriting, acoustic guitar, lead guitar, piccolo, strings

Thanks, everyone!



Open D tuning, but basically... G and D, bridge is Emin F# minor, final part D

Draft lyrics... 

The news is bad

We’ve got to stay well apart

It’s driving me quite mad


Trapped in our homes

Watching out for symptoms

Of a disease that no-one knows


You used to come over

For Netflix and to chill 


And now we’re not allowed to

In case I make you ill

Can I self isolate with you?


My fridge is bare

Empty shelves that groaned with food

Are now just empty air


Can I pop by?

The yawning distance of our homes

Is only just five miles


I’d keep the proper distance

Bring my own toilet roll


I’ll bring all my pasta

And some paracetamol

So I can I self isolate with you?


I’ve washed my hands

Whenever I’ve remembered

And every waking hour


My heart is true

But I forgot to ask the question

About staying in with you


I’d keep the proper distance

And bring my own hand san


I’ve got free range eggs

And some veg in a can

I wish I could self isolate with you
