Cut and Paste

from Mostly Dead Music by 8bit bEtty



I liked the idea behind this one, but no matter how many different versions I did of it, it always felt like it was trying too hard. Aside from the concept of superimposing phrases of differing lengths over each other in a pop context, there was never a central musical idea driving the piece.


connect the dots
do you see a picture?
color it in
does it look familiar?

maybe this time I'll cut it out
tack it on the fridge where I can see
and whenever I look at the mess I've made
I'll remember you're not meant for me

squeeze the paste
sprinkle the glitter
attach the lace
it doesn't look so bitter

Let's make this something we'll smile about
I won't cry if you won't too
I won't say goodbye we won't say goodbye so let's not try
but remember I'm not meant for you

cut and paste my heart here
cut and paste my heart, dear
