My recently departed musical friend Dr. Dave had written a song that I thought was quiet good but which didn't have any discernible chorus.
Not that a song should have to have a chorus but in this case the accessibility of what he wrote seemed to be screaming for one.
So as politely as I could, I asked him if it would be cool for me to tinker around with his tune and maybe add something to it. He said that would be fine, probably thinking I was just bullshitting. I went home that night and knocked out the "I'm not satisfied" hook. The next rehearsal, much to his surprise, I played for him a quick demo of how my chorus would work in his song. He sat down and listened intently. When it finished, he took a deep breath, flashed a warm smile and asked me if he could have the CD demo to listen to in his car. He needed to think it over. A few weeks went by and when we finally played his song again he kept to his original idea. I asked him about my addition and he kind of scooted around the issue and said something to the effect that he'd have to learn it but was too busy. I didn't press the issue. No matter. I just took my chorus and wrote a new song around it. And so it goes.
R.I.P Dave.

Track Name: I'm Not Satisfied
I’M NOT SATISFIED

The world keeps making fun of my lifestyle
Taunting me in front of my face
There’s nothing that I’d rather do now
Other than to break out and find a new place

But I don’t know where to go
A lock is on every door
I keep finding ants on my shoes
Distracting me from all the bad news and god awful truth

Well, I’m not satisfied no matter how I try
Not satisfied someone keeps stealing my dreams
I’m not satisfied
It’s so hard to believe that the end still justifies the means
I’m not satisfied no matter how I try
Not satisfied someone keeps stealing my dreams
I’m not satisfied
It’s so hard to believe that the end still justifies the means

I used to brush off obstacle losers
Blew them off like they weren’t there
I had myself a magnetic partner
Opposites who had an affair

But those days are gone for sure
Only shadows of what’s in store
Show me where my future will lie
In emptiness too deep to deny the god awful truth

I’m not satisfied no matter how I try
Not satisfied someone keeps stealing my dreams
I’m not satisfied
It’s so hard to believe that the end still justifies the means
I’m not satisfied no matter how I try
Not satisfied someone keeps stealing my dreams
I’m not satisfied
It’s so hard to believe that the end still justifies the means

So maybe I ought to ditch this life
Give up this pointless fight
Accept the negative that’s all around me
I wonder if my luck would change
Or maybe it would stay the same with ants on my shoes

I’m not satisfied no matter how I try
Not satisfied someone keeps stealing my dreams
I’m not satisfied
It’s so hard to believe that the end still justifies the means
I’m not satisfied no matter how I try
Not satisfied someone keeps stealing my dreams
I’m not satisfied
It’s so hard to believe that the end still justifies the means
