The fortuneteller

about

My friend @chrisrauh sent me a recording of him playing his shakuhachi (Japanese flute) for a collab. I challenged myself to write a song without touching the flute, keeping its tempo, pitch, and arrangement. I created a chord progression on the guitar, added bass, drums, shakers, and finally vocals.

lyrics

One day a woman
Dressed in gold
Laid my fortune bare to me

She said:

Here’s your past
Here’s your present
And here’s your future

Do you want to know
The things you’re
Not supposed to know?

She said:

Some things are better left undone
Some stones are better left unturned
Some rivers should not be crossed
But some bridges should be burned

Don’t look away from the sun
Don’t run away from what hurts you
Hear the wind when it calls your name
It brings you home

And she told me more:

Where you’re going
No one has gone
You’re going on your own

Trace a path from here to there
It will take you anywhere
But you’re going alone

Do you want to know
The things that will
Set you free?

Some things are better left undone
Some stones are better left unturned
Some rivers should not be crossed
But some bridges should be burned

Don’t look away from the sun
Don’t run away from what hurts you
Hear the wind when it calls your name
It brings you home

It brings you home

Do you want to know
The things that you’re
Not supposed to know?

Do you want to know
The things that you’re
Not supposed to know?
