What Is That Song About?

So this post has stemmed from my previous post, I figured since I’m on a writing spree at the moment – this sudden inspiration that has hit like a thunderbolt, I might as well write away! By now, you guys know I’m an avid jazz listener, but I do have other genres in my mix […]
