Wednesday Words
I was working on the phrasing for my song called Idea 9.  Phrasing is the songwriting equivalent of punctuation.  A slight pause can change the meaning of a line. 
Never again, I’ll feel the wind brush my cheek
Never again
The wind brushes my cheek
When singing this line, it’s a minor adjustment that changes the whole vibe. It would be easier to demonstrate this difference in a video but I didn’t make one (yet). The first version is definitive. I will never again feel the wind. The second version is more vague. Never again is an independent statement. It may or may not be directly correlated to the wind brushing my cheek. This new vaguely specific version feels better. It might be more accessible in a specifically vague kind of way. 

You can hear the new version on YouTube here.
