A Songwriter Looks Back In Hindsight

I'm gonna call my latest song (though not latest written) finished.

It's a title I just thought too interesting not to write. But notice I wrote the song in a literal sense. Oh, there's nothing wrong with that, but looking back, my songwriter brain starts thinking, "What if it was written in a figurative sense?"

Say, the singer was so infatuated with the other person, his friends were telling him, "Go home, you're drunk"? (I think I actually got the idea from a meme where some sort of technology like a printer or whatever was acting annoyingly out of character and the text read something like, "Go home, HP, you're drunk")

Why do I care about this?

Well, as a songwriter that would love to have an artist other than myself record one of my songs, I think it would work better as a song in that context. I could write another song with the same title. I could, I don't know if I will. (You can't copyright a title)

Okay, but until then, I'll still put it on the next album and play it live....but see, songwriting is hard!! Ha ha
