I had the idea of writing a song that actually didn’t have a lot of words. Too Many Words seemed like a good title. It was going to be simple. It was not going to be wordy or too long. But then I found myself scribbling down some words. They suggested a simple story. The story took on a life of its own as stories have a tendency to do. Once started I needed to find a way to finish it. Eventually the song was no longer proof that I could write a song without too many words. The title has become, quite unintentionally, ironic. I’ve tried to edit it down to no avail. The song seems to have as many words as it needs. At least I hope so.
